NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM HAS A 60 DAY EXTENSION~ NOT BOLD ENOUGH!

NATIONAL FLOOD INSURANCE PROGRAM HAS EXTENSION

There has been a need for our National Flood Insurance Program to be extended for long term. As REALTORS, one of the concerns in our Southeastern MA, Southern RI area that we cover is “what about Flood Insurance?”  The Flood Zone/Flood Insurance question is a hot topic in our area!

On May 30, the House passed a 60-day extension of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which will enable the Senate to act on the NAR supported 5-year reauthorization and reform bill this June. The current compromise also prevents a potentially catastrophic lapse of the NFIP for both the short and long-term.

According to Realtor.org: “The compromise now in place prevents a potentially catastrophic lapse of the NFIP for both the short and long-term. Flood insurance is required by law to obtain a mortgage in more than 21,000 communities nationwide. A lapse would have affected 1,300 transactions a day or nearly 40,000 a month, a potentially devastating blow to the nascent market recovery. NAR will continue to work with our Congressional allies to minimize the impact of this provision as the legislative process moves forward.”

This picture is of the flooding in Vermont last summer. In Stockbridge VT, where we have land, the two roads leading to our land were washed out. Our neighbors up there had to quad ride to get off the mountain.  Bridges were gone, roads decimated.  Lives changed. It is stunning to see how many ways one storm can affect one community. Crops gone, power gone, roads gone, foundations of homes gone, bridges gone. The list goes on and on.

Please become vocal with your representatives in support of 5 year reauthorization and reform bill. It will benefit all of us in the area of Southeastern MA and Southern RI.  Weather always wins…. we just need to be prepared!

Please contact the Professionals at BOLD MOVeS Real Estate to help you with all your Real Estate needs!

Make it a BOLD (and dry!) Day!

BOLD MOVeS REALTORS ARE BOLD AT ROCHESTER-MATTAPOISETT MEMORIAL DAY BOAT RACE

BOLD MOVES REAL ESTATE REALTORS AT MATTAPOISETT BOAT RACE 2012BOLD MOVeS REALTORS supported the Rochester-Mattapoisett Memorial Day  Boat Race in many ways this year.  Denise Higgins-Reuter and Kate Lanagan MacGregor entered the race and achieved their personal best time for the event…just under 3 hours! There was a sea of orange shirts at the finish line as BOLD MOVeS REALTORS showed up to support the co founders of BOLD MOVeS Real Estate. We also had the pleasure of sponsoring the event’s trophies and awards this year.

The Race is thick with traditions and rivalries. The boats must be homemade (or made by someone personally.) For many years, they were wooden boats, just  big enough for the two participants. In the last few years, a foam boat coated in fiberglass and epoxy has emerged. Denise and Kate were lucky enough to have a foam boat this year, made by Kate’s husband Dan MacGregor. It was fast and  a little tippy, and you may notice that Denise and Kate were soaked throughout the whole race!

The Rochester- Mattapoisett Memorial Day Boat Race has been going on since 1932. It is a 14+ mile zig zag of a river run from Grandma Hartley’s pond in Rochester to the Herring Run in Mattapoisett. For all those years, this has remained a free race to the contestants, and their has always been trophies and awards after the race. There actually used to be cash prizes as well. This year, BOLD MOVeS Real Estate offered to sponsor the prizes, as a thank you for the tireless efforts of many. Arthur Benner is the organizer, and works like a maniac to ensure a smooth day.

For more fun blog postings about the race, visit http://thestateofrochester.com. Carolyn MacGregor, associate here at BOLD MOVeS Real Estate,  has been covering the history and fun stories about the race.

BOLD MOVeS Real Estate is committed to the community we serve, and are happy to help you with all your questions about the Southeastern Massachusetts,  as well as Southern Rhode Island. Our offices are in Rochester MA, Fairhaven MA, and Little Compton RI. Please call us or contact us via this website for any further information! Make it a BOLD (and dry!) Day!

USDA LOANS~ SELLERS BEWARE! BOLD MOVeS Real Estate has your back!

USDA Housing Loans have been a staple of business for BOLD MOVeS Real Estate clients these past several years.The low down payment and mortgage insurance features of this loan make it very beneficial for our clients who qualify.

We recently ran into a few hiccups with the underwriters at the bank who were financing this product and want to share it with our Sellers. Our motto is “No surprises.”, and we want you to be aware of these recently discovered facts.

A well water test is required for homes with well water. On a recent transaction, we provided a well test that we had completed. In underwriting review, the bank rejected our water test because it was not completed by an arms length, third party. This means that the owners and agents cannot bring in water to the water testing company any longer. Because we are  REALTOR®, and follow the Code of Ethics that we promise to uphold, we were  disheartened by this policy. We have been handing in water tests for our sellers for years. Our Code of Ethics demands honesty and fair dealings.

For you, our sellers,  we  recommend you budget yourself more time, and  know that the cost will be higher.

The second item that came up was the acceptance of the Title V approval. Title V is a state regulation, and the laws allow for a Title V Approved inspection to be valid for two years, three if you have recorded pumping your system. The USDA did not allow that third year extension. So, only the two year validation was acceptable to them.

When you are buying or selling a home, be prepared for twists in the transaction. We at BOLD MOVeS Real Estate strive to stay on top of the changes in loans, marketing and laws. We will take great care of you! Please call us or register for us to follow up with you and your questions. 508-999-9800.

Make it a BOLD day!
