New Real Estate Related Law

The Mississippi Legislature recently enacted a new law requiring real estate agents, licensed in the state, to have background checks and have fingerprints on file with law enforcement.law-1063249_960_720

This is great news for the home seller and is a move fully supported by the Mississippi Association of REALTORS.  Sellers can have peace of mind about who enters their house to view it. Real estate agents have always been required to take a Code of Ethics class, but now sellers are protected further by knowing their agent and those agents that bring buyers into their  houses, are law abiding citizens as well.

Starting July 1, 2016, new agents and those renewing their license (an annual event)  will have to have a state FBI background check and fingerprints taken.

If you have any questions about this, please contact me or your real estate agent for  more information.

What Do Bunnies Have To Do With Real Estate

The Oxford Mississippi housing market is hot right now.

Buyers consist of first-time homebuyers, parents purchasing condos for their college students housing needs, and Ole Miss football fans who want a place to stay in the fall during the games. There are also families that just want a bigger home, rental property investors, homeowners who want to downsize, and workers relocating to the area for a new job.

Between 2013 and 2014, Oxford and Lafayette County was ranked the 15th fastest growing “micropolitan” area in the U.S., by the Census Bureau. And it is the fastest growing part of the state of Mississippi.Peeps bunnies cropped.jpg

So many people are moving here or want to buy a place to stay when they visit. But we have a shortage of homes available leaving buyers scrambling to purchase what they can and what they need.  With this comes even higher prices for housing (law of suppy and demand). I often hear renters and first-time buyers complain about the cost of housing. “There is no affordable housing in Oxford,” they say.  Well, there is, but it gets snatched up so quickly when it comes on the market leaving wannabe first-time homebuyers scratching their heads.

My suggestion for those that want to purchase a home in Oxford is to be prepared: get your finances in order, have a plan, get a pre-qualification from your bank so you know how much you can borrow and in what price range you can search. Once you are on top of the money process, find a real estate agent to help you.  Start a relationship with a local agent who will then know what you want, how much you can spend and how quickly you can jump on making an offer.  In this market, if you take your time searching the internet and then have to find an agent to get the ball rolling, you might miss the opportunity.

So what do bunnies have to do with real estate?  They represent homebuyers hopping on housing opportunities as fast as they can. Be a bunny!
