Appraisal for EXisting House with Planned Changes, Prior to Purchase

Appraisal for EXisting House with Planned Changes, Prior to Purchase on the Home Building Timeline at K-11

It's eXpensive to pre-appraise every house you might consider for purchase, so don't. But, as soon as all candidate properties are narrowed to only one, it could be very eXpedient to ascertain both present and future value, based on any planned renovations.

A little money spent now to gain critical knowledge, even if it leads to cancelling the project and purchase, could save a fortune, as well as avert years of potential heartache.

Balloon Mortgage

Balloon Mortgage : At the end of the initial phase of a sub-prime mortgage, in which monthly payments are kept artificially low, payments eXpand suddenly, overnight or "balloon" to many times the original payment amount. Those people who borrow such a Balloon Mortgage find themselves unable to make the very high payments each month, and are forced into foreclosure. Be here warned to NEVER become part of such a financial arrangement.

A Right-of-Way (ROW) for a street, road, or highway is a special parcel of land. A road ROW sits beside and between other parcels of property. Some eXamples are streets, interstate highways, railroad tracks, gas lines, and power lines.

A Right-of-Way for utilities is a special type of easement, and may pass through a privately owned parcel of land. In such a case, the landowner still possesses the land, but is not allowed to ever build within the ROW. EXamples are gas pipelines, powerlines, and other utilities like cable television and telephone; and driveways allowing one owner to cross another owner's land.

Stop and Think

 

Stop, and Think on the Home Building Timeline EVERYWHERE.

"Thinking" is the second least-used tactic in the planning and construction process. The first least-employed tactic is stopping to do it.

Building anything dwelling-related is a hurried, high-pressure, higher-eXpectations, highest-emotional-state eXperience. 'Reason' is replaced by anXiety; and bad decision-making follows, naturally. The cure is to give yourself a moment to consider options. So, stop and think.

 

Learn these phrases and use them often:

 

"This doesn't seem right. I need some time to think about it."

 

"Let's look at that more closely."

 

"How can we fiX this problem?"

 

Gain the high ground in any situation by seizing the moment to stop and think.

Concerning every aspect of this project :

If you're unsure, stop and become certain.

If a thing is unknown to you, stop and learn about it.

When a mistake is made, by you or others, stop and find of a solution.

The key word is STOP. Don't worry if people around you are impatient. Stand firm, as you actively seek positive solutions. -AB
