Just a quick update regarding Bay County and ourselves....

Obviously, my family and I have survived the worst of the hurricane! I'll post pictures shortly - our house came out better than some and not as good as others.  Several of my neighbors have lost everything

Thank you so much to all the well wishers and inquiries.

Unfortunately, we still have no Internet access (We're on comcast and are not expected to regain access until end of November).

We also have intermittent power outages, and just this week we were able to get our A/C working again (Thank you Jeff!!!).

In the meantime, I do have some important information about the rebuilding if our area that I will be posting in the next few days as I can get internet access.

For now,

I've just received a notice from my office broker - I pretty much expected this since my average DOM's (Days on Market) are much less than 30 days and rarely over 45.

Those 1-3  DOM's really help my average LOL!

Per my broker.

Here is a number you can use!

Keller Williams "average days market" stat is 79 days before our listings are sold. BCAR average days on market is 103. We are out producing the market by almost 25%

Yay ;)


What this means to you as a Home or Condo seller...

If you list with me, your Panama City or Panama City Beach property will be sold on average much quicker than if you listed with any other agent in Bay County!

And that is something of which I am proud!

Title Insurance - What it is and why you need it.

Title insurance is a contract between the title underwriter (Insurer) and the insured (home owner) whereby the title underwriter (Insurer) agrees to indemnify the insured for all loss (up to the amount of the policy) and expenses which the insured (home owner) may suffer by reason of the title to real property being other than as represented in the title policy.

The coverage of the policy, like all policies of insurance, is subject to the conditions, exception and exclusions provided in the policy.

A title insurance policy is a guarantee against the possibility of loss if the attorney/closing agent makes an honest mistake. An attorney’s liability is restricted by his or her ability to pay

If you've read my other blog - Panama City Real Estate Blog about some of the decisions lenders are making in large part thanks to the so called Economic Recovery Act you can understand my frustration.

Are lenders losing their insanity?  Are the people in charge of the decision making process actually qualified to make these decisions?

I have to wonder at the competency of these people.

Perhaps they are more interested in taking a loss on their books than actually helping tax paying, home owners in the United States?

What do you think?

Are lenders taking advantage of a hand out for tax gains that should have been issued to home owners?

Should our government investigate the practices of these lenders?

Where are our elected officials,

Yesterday, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Rural Housing Preservation and Stabilization Act of 2010 (H.R. 5017).

Through this legislation, the guarantee fee in the USDA Guaranteed Rural Housing (GRH) Program may be raised to offset any need for Congressional appropriations.

Additionally, H.R. 5017 would authorize USDA Rural Development to guarantee up to $30 billion in loans in Fiscal Year 2010. 

This would represent an additional $18 billion in loan making authority for the remainder of this fiscal year.

Before these changes can be implemented, similar legislative action will need to occur in the U.S. Senate.

Following this action in the House, the USDA Rural Development National Office sent an announcement that stated: Depending upon

Just released - Fannie Mae foreclosure incentives...

Source: The Wall Street Journal, Nick Timiraos (04/26/2010) 

Beginning in July, Fannie Mae will allow financially troubled home owners to complete a “deed in lieu of foreclosure” or a short sale and be eligible to apply for a new Fannie-backed mortgage in two years.

Currently, borrowers who have completed a deed-in-lieu must wait four years to apply for a loan that Fannie will purchase. Home buyers who go through foreclosure must wait five years.

All these waiting periods can be reduced further, if the potential buyer can show extenuating circumstances. "We are beginning to think about post-recession, how you address borrowers who became unemployed through no fault of their own ... and now
