Have you accpeted a friend request today?? The world of social networking

The average Facebook member has 130 friends and is connected to 80 community pages, groups or events. The growing popularity of social media is a global trend that is difficult to ignore. Teens and young adults were the first to spend time socializing online, but their elders have recently discovered the benefits. Statistics show that adults over age 50 are the fastest growing category of social networkers.

Social media has quickly become an active part of our everyday lives. Most of us participate in social networking to socialize with friends and family, promote our businesses and interests, support local businesses, and share details of events and promotions. As the trend of social networking grows, it is important we realize not only all of its benefits but also how to be cautious users. As parents, we should be aware of the social networking our teens are participating in and educate them on how to safely network.

For each of you entrepreneurs, social networking should be at the core of growing your business. You can use Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, and YouTube to promote your business and ignite the "word of mouth" effect amongst your natural network.

There have been so many home buyers looking to buy a new home with an FHA loan that have become discouraged by multiple offers and competition with all cash investors, or the recent increase in fees with an FHA loan. The homepath loan through Fannie Mae is the resolution. Here are just a few bullet points about the program, complements of my preferred lender Audrey Hutton of Prospect Mortgage:

Here are the key benefits of a HomePath Mortgage Loan:

• Only 3% down required on a primary residence property
• No mortgage insurance required
• No property appraisal required
• On Condos, no condo cert required, so if there is litigation or issues with the HOA, no worries!
• Only 10% down on 1-2 unit investment properties
• Get up to 6% in seller concessions on primary residence properties
• Allows investors to finance up to ten properties
• Funded by June 30th, 3.5% closing cost credit to the buyers

This program is not just a great resource for owner occupied purchases but also for investor purchases. With low interest rates and prime home prices, now is a great time to purchase an investment property. HomePath offers an investor loan with only 10% down.

As always, I hope to remain your trusted real estate resource. Please feel free to contact me for additional information on this program. If you are thinking of buying or selling, let's set-up a time to get together and discuss your options.
