Episode 11 - How to Analyze Comparable Sales

It's Viewer Question Friday and we had a very good question from Janiro...

"When finding 3 properties does the structure have to be the same, for instance when I researched my subject property on zillow the comparable properties were within the one mile radius, they had similar square footage as well as the same amount of bedrooms and bathrooms.  However, I noticed that my property was wood with a 2 car detached garage, but the other properties were all brick with attached garages. Is that ok or should I find more properties?”

There are Four Main items you need to consider when developing good comparable sales, they include...

  1. Make sure you are comparing similar homes in square footage and bed and baths.
  2. Try to find homes of similar quality so an unupdated 1970’s home is not the same as a home across the street that was recently remodeled.
  3. Try to find 3 homes within a mile of your property with similar neighborhoods and sold in the last 6 months.
  4. Only ever compare sold homes and not homes listed for sale.

Episode 6 - Changes to HAMP May Mean 2nd Lien Holders are Willing to Play Ball on Short Sales

On Friday Bank of America agreed to work with the federal government on their second lien holder plan in the HAMP program.  This means that they will start to work with mortgage companies who hold the first mortgage on properties in loan modification deals.  Reducing the second mortgage payment can help a lot of homeowners qualify under the governments criteria that they only pay 31% of their gross income to housing.  Just as importantly for us it may signal the beginning of better relationships between banks on short sales.  Maybe this is finally our chance to get both of them to play nice and get our smoking hot short sale deals where there are two lien holders approved!
