Buyer class for Scott/Carver counties…Contact Lou


Dear Potential Homeowner :

1) We offer individual “Loan Counseling” appointments to discuss your personal financial situation as it relates to purchasing a home or getting a good home loan.  Our counseling services are free except for a credit report which is currently $12.75 (including the score).  If you would like this “loan counseling” appointment, please call us to set a date and discuss what paperwork we need (copies of paystubs, bankstatements and tax returns).  We look at your income, credit and assets like the bank or a lender does, and we help you create a plan for mortgage loan application and a house purchase.

***2) In addition to the loan counseling please see the flyer for our HOMEBUYER “Home Stretch” Seminars and a registration form.  After you have reviewed this, you may return the Seminar Registration and $25 fee/household payable to the Carver Co. CDA at 705 Walnut Street, Chaska, MN  55318, for our Educational 8-hour seminar (approved seminars are required to utilize certain special mortgage products or down-payment assistance programs).***

 

JANUARY 6, 2011 – THURS.eve        6pm-9pm

and JANUARY 8, 2011 – SATURDAY        9 am-2:30 pm

 

3) Depending on your move-in date goal, we do have some very nice properties available here for the Carver Co. Land Trust.  If you have any questions regarding our local Land Trust properties for sale please call and ask for Brenda.  We look forward to helping you towards your financial & homeownership goals.  (952) 448-7715.

Lastly, we can review and help you understand almost any lender’s and most real estate agent’s paperwork you have already received.  (Our counseling services are free except as listed in this letter.)

Please share the attached “schedule” with others if you can.  If our “Home Stretch” schedule or location is not convenient for you, other Home Stretch providers in the Metro area and their schedule can be picked up at our office, accessed on the following web page: www.hocmn.org or call 651-659-9336 to have a brochure sent to you.

Our sincere best wishes!

South Metro Market


Being in real estate is definitely a line of work that keeps me on my toes and looking at the papers, internet & talking with other agents quit often.  Especially in the market we are in.  With the number of foreclosures, short sales and some just trying to do a regular sale, keeps me always looking to educate myself so my clients get top notch service, knowledge and answers to their questions that are to the best of my knowledge.  With that is knowing what is available on the market and what my clients needs are.

Let’s look at a high demand neighborhood that many thought they could never live in.  I will not say you can purchase a home for pennies on the dollar by any means, but have you looked at the prices lately in The Wilds Neighborhood Golf community?  Well, don’t waste another second…they are INCREDIBLE!   To live in a neighborhood that centers around one of the top golf course in America, close to recreational endeavors, small town feel but only minutes from bit town living, a short community to the Mall of America and so much more.

Here are some examples:

3 bedroom, 3 bath executive townhouse on the golf course sold just over 6 years ago for $380,000.00.  Well, believe it or not this home is now pending to be sold with a list price of $275,000.00.  Did I mention pending? Yes, it is going to be closed and word on the street is it will be lower than the list price even.

Single family home is what you are looking for? There are the same sort of deals out there as the one mentioned above.  Some are on the course, some have pools & some well you would just gasp if you saw what they offered on the inside!

So, when THE SPIRITS TO MOVE, hits you…contact Vickie Gylling at RE/MAX Advantage Plus or check out her website at www.VickieGylling.com and get quality service, knowledge & care you deserve when making such a decision.
