Town Tip Thursday: Attention Homeowners!

Published

on

Town Tip Thursday, A WHAT MATTERS Initiative.
Attention Homeowners – Get appropriate Building Permits and learn about a 2.99% Home Equity Loan that will help pay for them!

In this week’s three minute tip, Beth Medved Waller encourages homeowners to make sure they obtain building permits as required for home improvements.  She also discusses (with Katrina Meade) a home equity loan that City National Bank offers to help fund home improvements.

 

BUILDING PERMITS FOR HOME IMPROVEMENTS (per Warren County’s Website):

The Building Code was adopted by the Commonwealth of Virginia to ensure the health, life and safety of its citizens. Certification by the County for compliance with the Building Code will assist in avoiding possible problems later. Building Permits are required for: New buildings, additions, decks, porches, detached residential accessory buildings larger than 200 square foot, attached or detached garages, above ground or in-ground pools, finishing a basement, interior alterations (removing walls, adding walls, enlarging windows), retaining walls, fences over six (6) feet, electrical work, mechanical improvements (including heat/ac) and plumbing work.

If you are undertaking a project and are not sure if a permit is required, please contact our office at (540) 636-9973, prior to starting, and ask if a permit is necessary.

*Beth’s note – be sure to call to check the building permit requirements even if you have a professional contractor making your repairs. As a Realtor, I’ve seen many situations when licensed contractors failed to get appropriate permits. Most all buyers have home inspections that will discover un-permitted improvements that may cause sales to fall through.

CITY NATIONAL HOME EQUITY PRODUCT:

City National bank can loan up to 89% of the equity in a primary residence.  Their rate on this type of loan currently starts at 5.25% (for 80% equity) and it is tied to prime.  There is currently a special first year rate of 2.99%.  There are no closing costs with this loan except for the County’s recordation fee. The bank pays for the appraisal – if it doesn’t come in high enough, the client does not owe us anything.  The Line has a 15 year draw period and a 15 year repayment period.  During the first 15 years, the payment is interest only – minimum payment is accrued interest (any additional payment amount is a direct principal reduction).  At the end of 15 years, the principal still owed is amortized out over the next 15 years. There is a $50 annual fee that is waived for the first year.  Funds are drawn as needed and only they would pay interest only on the amount drawn. The interest may be tax deductible.  Call Katrina Meade for more information at 540-631-3104 or email her at Katrina.Meade@bankatcity.com with any questions.

The bank will require the following information to start the loan process:

  • 2 year’s tax returns
  • 2 year’s W-2
  • 30 day’s payroll stubs for each borrower
  • Copy of Identification for each borrower
  • Social Security Number for each borrower
  • Collateral Information:
  • Property Address
  • Original Purchase Price
  • Current Market Value
  • Year House was built
  • Mortgagee
  • Payment Amount
  • Year purchased
  • Certificate of insurance for the collateral
  • Copy of the Deed
  • Employment Information
  • Place of Employment
  • Address / Phone Number
  • Monthly Income
  • Length of Employment

A summary of the Shenandoah Valley Real Estate Market and Economic Summit

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren – Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Research at the National Association of REALTORS (Dr. Lawrence Yun) was keynote speaker at a recent event addressing the Shenandoah Valley’s economy and real estate market. Dr. Yun spoke to a large crowd at Lord Fairfax Community College last Thursday, November 29th, and shared a positive forecast for the local and national economies. In this video, Nancy Silva of the Blue Ridge Association of Realtors (BRAR) asks him to share a message for those who couldn’t attend the BRAR sponsored summit. Following his remarks are a few of the most interesting slides he presented.

Dr. Yun remarked that Seattle has been one of the hottest real estate markets in the country, largely due to Amazon, and he added that Amazon’s local announcement should heartily contribute to the already thriving economic conditions in the surrounding area. He revealed that the greater Winchester area has three times faster growth in comparison with the rest of the country.

The presentation began with confidence that interest rates will not skyrocket as many have feared. He also commented that he feels the real estate market will remain relatively stable and “boring” until at least 2020 as he encouraged long term reflection of positive trends in the face of negative headlines.

Investors and homeowners are doing well over the long term despite the resent lull in the markets, he professed. He attributes the current slowdown largely to the time of year. He said we enjoyed a flurry of great activity in the spring and should not be overly concerned about the recent slowdown. Even though new home sales are at a 4 year low, he insists that the downturn is “not a major crash.” He explained that buyers are burned out from spring bidding wars and are now wanting to see 10+ homes before deciding. He says there’s a lack of inventory of entry level homes and buyers are frustrated.

He elaborated on buyer’s diminished optimism and revealed that expectation surveys are conflicting because despite the recent slump, most people expressed confidence in rising home prices. Dr. Yun is optimistic for a strong spring market despite the fact that, “buyers have retreated and homes are on the market longer.” He encourages current sellers to “give in on prices or wait until the spring.” He suggests that buyers should take advantage of the increased inventory because “more inventory means better deals.” On interest rates, he warned that it’s false hope to think that rates will come down and the question is not if they will lower but how much they will rise.

Dr.Yun is encouraged by the fact that people are paying their mortgages and there are fewer owners facing foreclosure. He reported, “homeownership is making a comeback” and that “home prices are unlikely to drop.” He thinks that real estate trends will be relatively boring through 2020 and confessed that if there is a new bubble, it’s in commercial real estate, not in residential sales. He added that people are staying in their homes longer these days (about 10-11 years) compared to past years in which owners were moving before their 8 year purchase anniversary.

Katrina Meade of City National Bank was in attendance at the summit and had great things to say about his presentation, “I thought it was interesting comparing 2004 (before the bubble) and now – ARM (adjustable rate mortgage) loans made up 28.8% of loan applications in 2004 and now they make up only 6.5% – definitely reflective of marketing/sales/perception issue that we as an industry have to continue to overcome.”

Dr. Yun’s optimism was embraced by his audience as he offered appreciated reassurance in the face of questionable headlines. His insight encourages healthy optimism throughout both the local real estate & economic markets.

Facebook is matching donations to nonprofits today on “Giving Tuesday”

Published

WHAT MATTERS Warren – Facebook will match donations to nonprofits through Facebook on GIVING TUESDAY, 11/27/18

Do you have a nonprofit you’d like to support this holiday season? Log on at EXACTLY 8am Tuesday 11/27/18 and Facebook will match your donation (up to their 7 million max total donation matching limit). If you’re looking for a cause to support, Beth Medved Waller’s 501(c)(3) nonprofit, WHAT MATTERS, was approved by Facebook to receive donations for Giving Tuesday. Currently, 100% of all WM donations are going to support the children of Light up Life Foundations in Uganda (unless otherwise designated). Not only will she personally match donations as she always does, but Facebook will match donations made starting at 8am on Giving Tuesday. Most of her WHAT MATTERS videos are exclusively featured here on Royal Examiner.

This new two minute video is a sample of what past donations have already done on the other side of the world through the WHAT MATTERS/Light up Life Bunyade school construction project.

Beth has a message for the kind readers who support and follow her initiatives: “Words can’t express how much of a difference the donations have made to children in Uganda. I head back in two weeks for my 5th trip this year, and I’m so thankful for the amazing support received since my first fundraising campaign last Christmas. I’m thrilled to be able to match all funds received and to now offer a tax deductible donation for supporters. On Giving Tuesday, Facebook now will make donations THREE times as impactful! If you have another nonprofit you support, please use this opportunity to support any cause that matters to you!”

If you’d like to set up a campaign to help on your personal page, here’s a link, or donate even just a few dollars yourself by visiting What Matters W2 on Facebook! Remember, every cent goes to the cause as she personally funds all expenses thanks to her real estate clients/sales.

She heads back to Uganda on December 7th- 15th for holiday mission work. Please let her know if you have any used touch screen electronic devices she can take (or video games/systems for a new fundraising project there).

If you’d prefer to donate on her website, www.whatmattersw2.com/donate,  it now also accepts tax deductible donations-which would make a wonderful Christmas gift for the person on your list who would be touched by a personal thank you video from the children. Donate before Dec 12th and she’d be glad to film an unforgettable message for your loved one for you to share on Christmas morning! Mention it in your donation comments online or contact her via her website to coordinate!

THANK YOU TO ALL PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE DONORS!
