You Can Choose Your Fresh Start! Alberta Buyers Will help
One of life’s biggest ironies is that there is more help available for those who don’t need it than those who do. The higher your credit score, the lower your interest rate. If you are doing well and have been able to keep your credit score high and your debt low, you will be rewarded with a lower car payment, for example, due to reduced interest even though you could afford to pay more. The person who might benefit from having a reliable new car for one of those $169-a-month
Deferred Maintenance: The Not So Obvious Effect of the Recession!
The obvious: Foreclosures have affected whole neighborhoods in areas that have been hit hardest by the housing bust. There are homes that have been left empty, abandoned and decaying beyond repair. The not-so-obvious: We are seeing more deferred maintenance in light of the recession. Many homeowners these days are putting off doing regular up-keep and repair to their homes. Maybe they can’t afford to replace the roof, or they’re underwater on the mortgage and don’t want to pu
Foreclosures Put Alberta Buyers in the Spotlight.
Every new wave of the Making Home Affordable Program (HAMP), as well as every wave of foreclosures, puts the banks in the spotlight in ways they seldom want to be. After many banks received TARP bailouts, some have not acted the way many expected them to, whether they got a dime from the Feds or not. Their Slow Response to the Crisis… HAMP was conceived promptly to meet a crisis, so banks had to prepare to implement it quickly. Participation in the program was voluntary and e

Are you cut out to be a homeowner? Alberta Buyer will help.
This subject came up on Dr. Phil the other day. He asked the audience about mistakes they had made. One person brought up that she had bought a house. “Everyone” suggested it was a good idea, but she thought otherwise when the roof developed a major leak. She was angry with the landlord until she remembered, “O, that’s me!” She quickly decided that she didn’t want to be responsible for property and longed for the days of more carefree renting. Does this describe you? Would yo
Need to Sell Your Home Fast? Sell your house to Alberta Buyers
Spring has traditionally been a hot time for real estate sales. This year, due to the buyer’s tax credit, sales were expected to be higher than normal throughout the winter. However, Mother Nature interfered with the President’s plan, and instead of touring around for the ‘ideal home’ spots, prospective home buyers were busy clearing their driveway during the unusual Snowmageddon this year. Spring has announced her arrival at the onset of the Cherry Blossom Festival, which is

Strategic Default Allows Some Homeowners to Swim Back to the Top
The dilemma today for many considering loan modifications or even considering whether to move from the trial to the permanent phase of the process is whether it is worth it in the long run.
