Boomerang Buyers -
Many boomerang buyers fell victim to the financial hardships
and real estate bust of the great recession.
Many have recovered and are still renting. They are coming back stronger than ever before and are
ready to purchase their next home.Are you a boomerang home buyer? A boomerang home buyer is someone who has gone
through a bankruptcy, short sale or foreclosure and has worked on their credit
scores, got their finances in order and saved money for a down payment for a
new home. These scenarios I just mentioned
have waiting periods/requirements to get a new mortgage. Has your waiting period expired and you now meet these requirements? You may be ready for the next step.
Interest rates are still low and can be of great benefit for
the boomerang buyer to realize their American dream of once again owning a home.
Do you continue to rent and are ready to boomerang into
owning your own home? I’d like to
help! Call me, Frank Mendoza, at 505-615-0436 for more

For most families, selling their home is one of the biggest financial decisions they will ever make. The process can be daunting, with many important questions that need to be answered. But while difficult, the process doesn’t have to be impossible. In fact, I think it should be enjoyable; and I’m here to help. If you’ve ever sat on pins and needles before waiting for your home to sell, you understand. If this is your first time, I promise it isn’t that bad. However, there are some steps that you can take to make sure your home sells quickly and for top dollar.
1. Stage your home - One of the largest problems potential buyers have is picturing themselves in your home. Think about putting away photos and knick-knacks that may personalize your home. Also, and I know it sounds obvious, make sure your home is tidy when potential buyers are visiting.
2. Check your curb appeal - Are the windows clean and neatly hung? Does the siding need to be power washed? Do the flowerbeds need an upgrade? All of these things can draw or detract a potential buyer for your property.
3. Decide on a reasonable price - Setting an unrealistic price is quite possibly the biggest mistake you can make. Possibly even hire an appraiser to inspect your property and make an expert judgment.

If you've purchased a home before, I'm sure you know all of the crazy things that can happen when trying to close. If this will be your first home buying experience, then you're in for one of the most exciting times of your life.
I can't promise that everything in your future transaction will go perfectly and exactly as planned. No real estate professional can promise that to their clients. What I can promise you is that I have the knowledge and experience necessary to get you through the process alive!
There are several participants to the process that I want you to know about up front. People like appraisers, inspectors, lenders, other real estate agents, and title insurance companies all working together to close your deal. Of course, any time there are that many cooks in the kitchen, there can be tension. My job is to make sure that all of these players understand their respective role in the common goal of getting you into your beautiful new home.
If you have any questions about any step in the process of buying a home, please contact me anytime. I am available by phone at (505) 615-0436 or you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can't wait to hear from you.

Kids home all day, barbeque parties, and family get-togethers have probably taken a toll on your carpet this past summer. But you can get that just-installed look back (which helps if you're selling soon).Of course, the best way to keep your carpet fresh is preventative maintenance. Regular vacuuming and placing of entry floor mats directly in front of and outside your doors will dramatically cut down on the wear of household carpets. If you own pets, bathe and brush them regularly.When one of those household accidents occurs, and you spill something on your carpet. Try to blot out as much of the liquid as soon as possible. To avoid stains, you'll need a gadget that can pull excess moisture out of the carpet. Carpet stains are best removed by dilution—lessen the intensity of the stain with the appropriate liquid and dry it up quickly. Only use your vacuum cleaner if it's made to handle moisture.If red wine has been spilled on the carpet, apply a mixture of 1 part baking soda to 2 parts water on the affected area. Scrub it into the carpet; blot out the excess moisture, then vacuum up the stain. If the stain remains, repeat the steps until the wine is gone.For coffee spills, add cold water to the spot to dilute the stain, and then blot up the excess moisture. Next pour a little white vinegar on the stain, and blot. This should return the spot to its original color.To clean regular traffic stains, apply a pre-treatment made for high traffic areas to your carpet. Then, steam the areas and let dry.Need to sell your home? Call Frank Mendoza direct at 505.615.0436 or email at frank@QmetroRealtors.com.
