Appraisers & Sales Agents – Congressional Testimony (Modernizing the Appraisal)
11/25/2016
Appraisers & Agents, We’ve reached the point in our Philadelphia real estate market life cycle where agreed upon sales values are frequently not supported by historical data. Multiple layers of appraisal regulatory requirements are extending completion times and delaying settlement dates. These factors are creating issues between transactional parties with blame often placed on the real estate appraiser. Complicating matters, have been increasing and costly professional licensure requirements that has resulted in a lack of new appraisers entering the profession; and a lack of competent or credible appraisers.

Graditude
11/25/2016
All, Each morning, my children wake up to the message board in our home hanging near the refrigerator and where we eat breakfast. There is usually a doodle or cartoon sketch and notes about the day’s schedule; and there are always the words “Love” and a “Rule of the Day.” Today’s Rule of the day was “Be thankful for the simple things.” Each day, I am thankful for the intelligent, diligent and dedicated individuals on our team; and think about how each of us bring unique skills, experience and value.

Selling a home built on memories
03/20/2016
This is why I love real estate. We met Maxine more than three years ago after she called from a flyer solicitation mailed to the Township in which she lived. We spent those three years working hand in hand with her, sorting through a lifetime of more than 90 years. Over 65 of those years in the same home she now wanted to sell. The accumulation of memories connected with every corner of the home was vast, to say the least! Pricing, marketing and selling the property was no problem. It was easy, because we eat sleep and breathe real estate. Selling a box of memories full of love, loss, childhood, first steps, music lessons, and an endless swirl of milestones - this is a more delicate […]

DO YOU QUALIFY FOR A MORTGAGE INSURANCE TAX DEDUCTION?
01/05/2016
Great news for homeowners and soon-to-be homeowners: Congress has extended the tax deductibility on mortgage insurance for 2015 and 2016. This means that borrowers obtaining their mortgage after 2006, may qualify to deduct premiums paid in both 2015 and 2016. Mortgage insurance includes private mortgage insurance (PMI) and government forms of mortgage insurance that is paid on FHA, USDA, and VA mortgages. So who qualifies? Borrowers with adjusted gross incomes up to $100,000 can deduct 100% of their borrower-paid mortgage insurance premiums. Deductions are reduced by 10% for each additional $1,000 of adjusted gross income, phasing out after $109,000. The threshold for married bo […]

Graditude
11/25/2016
All, Each morning, my children wake up to the message board in our home hanging near the refrigerator and where we eat breakfast. There is usually a doodle or cartoon sketch and notes about the day’s schedule; and there are always the words “Love” and a “Rule of the Day.” Today’s Rule of the day was “Be thankful for the simple things.” Each day, I am thankful for the intelligent, diligent and dedicated individuals on our team; and think about how each of us bring unique skills, experience and value. I have tremendous gratitude as we look forward to the holiday season, and toward a new year. “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into j […]

Selling a home built on memories
03/20/2016
This is why I love real estate. We met Maxine more than three years ago after she called from a flyer solicitation mailed to the Township in which she lived. We spent those three years working hand in hand with her, sorting through a lifetime of more than 90 years. Over 65 of those years in the same home she now wanted to sell. The accumulation of memories connected with every corner of the home was vast, to say the least! Pricing, marketing and selling the property was no problem. It was easy, because we eat sleep and breathe real estate. Selling a box of memories full of love, loss, childhood, first steps, music lessons, and an endless swirl of milestones - this is a more delicate […]

Great news for homeowners and soon-to-be homeowners: Congress has extended the tax deductibility on mortgage insurance for 2015 and 2016.
