A lackluster credit score could bring up your interest rate and set the stage for years of higher payments. But if you work on improving your score, you'll end up paying less for your home loan.

Many of us don't pay attention to our credit scores until the time comes to borrow money. But what you may not know is that having a credit score that's good, but not great, could cost you thousands of dollars in mortgage interest.

In a recent LendingTree report, borrowers with the best credit scores (760 and above) were offered APRs of 4.18% in October, versus 4.44% for those whose scores ranged from 680 to 719.

If you're looking to purchase a property in a neighborhood, community or building with shared common areas (like a pool, clubhouse, parking garage, etc.) or even a security gate, it's likely the community or neighborhood is maintained by a homeowners association, also known as a HOA. When you move into a community maintained by a HOA, you are obligated to join the association and are responsible for any monthly, annual, or special HOA fees that come along with the association. But what is a homeowners association, and what can a HOA do for your community?

If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home in 2018, you should know what to expect the housing markets will look like next spring.

Not long ago, before the housing boom and bust, forecasting housing markets was a relatively easy matter for most economists. Real estate prices were a matter of supply and demand. As supplies increase, prices decline. As demand increases, prices rise. Mortgage interest rates, income levels and demographic factors all impact housing demand, and economists can forecast it.

The easing of the inventory shortage, which is expected to result in more manageable increases in home prices and a modest acceleration of home sales, is based on an inventory growth trend that began in August 2017, according to realtor.com®. The annual

Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.

Here are seven great reasons not to wait:

1. Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their employees in their new positions as soon as possible.

2. Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.

3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.

4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.

5. There is less competition for you as a seller

The Southern Nevada economy continues to expand, and the population base has responded accordingly. An influx of new residents has helped bolster demand in the housing market.

With strengthening conditions experienced throughout 2017 expected to continue, similar housing supply-demand dynamics are likely to follow.

In October 2017, single family prices jumped 13.4 percent compared to last year, and the number of closings were also up 13.4 percent from 12 months ago.

Effective availability fell to 1.7 months (down 40.5 percent).

Buying a newly constructed home involves managing a big project that needs a Realtor's help

Key Takeaways:

Buying a new home is not a slam dunk; there is a process to manage and a myriad of details to oversee. It is important for a buyer to understand both their and the builder's obligations in the process.

A buyer doesn’t have to remodel, repair or properly redo what the prior owners may not have done correctly in the first place.
