housegreenkeys__anthonycz_450zillow.com - Home values saw their smallest monthly increase since May 2012, up just 0.2 percent in January from December according to the latest Zillow Real Estate Market Reports. Year-over-year, U.S. home values rose 6.3 percent in January, down from peak gains of 7.1 percent in August 2013. This slowdown is in part due to the rise in inventory of for-sale homes across the country. The number of homes listed for sale on Zillow was up 11.1 percent annually in January, the fifth straight month of rising year-over-year inventory.

menhouse_sellingpix_450money.cnn.com - The good news for housing is that price gains next year are expected to be only about half as strong as in 2013, when sellers stayed on the sidelines. Yes, that's good news. "For a sustainable recovery you want to see more balance between buyers and sellers," says David Stiff, chief economist at CoreLogic Case-Shiller, which is forecasting a 6.8% rise in the median home value for 2014.

Inventory is already improving. Nationwide, the number of homes for sale in September rose 1.8% vs. a year earlier, according to the National Association of Realtors. That's the first increase since late 2011. In Los Angeles, Atlanta, and Orlando, inventory was 10% or higher than a year earlier. To read more of this article, click the link…

But that’s not always the reality. While people still do meet around a table at the closing, today some closings happen virtually. The buyers and sellers can sign the necessary documents remotely and wire money for the closing.

The success of this strategy hinges on thinking carefully about the needs of a seller.

moneyhouse_oleg-doroshin_450realestate.msn.com - In many real estate markets, there's a lot of talk about cash buyers. These buyers have a reputation for swooping in and "stealing" homes out from under other buyers, simply because someone with cash doesn't need a loan. Regular buyers relying on credit are often intimidated by what appears to be a "lose-lose" situation. They assume that if they need a loan, they can't compete. 

The truth is, someone buying a home with credit can still compete against cash buyers and win. Do you have a 20 percent down payment? Are you well employed?
