I found that my contact at Bank of America does have options
available and they're offering up to a 6-month loan rate lock. I'm
curious if anyone has seen anything else out there. My
clients and I are talking to a new construction project that is
investor funded and the 17 lots platted already have 4 houses up,
including the model, with one of them a property they'll consider -
or they'll choose another lot and put the house they want on it
with a couple of modifications that will work better for them.
Rates are awesome so getting them into a loan soon would be good
but I am concerned that the builder says only 90 days for
construction once they break ground because most new construction
I've seen takes up to 6 months, easy, since up here building is
affected by weather.
I have to say that the Whisper Woods development in Snohomish is
pretty nice and I'd recommend anyone looking out that way to go
check it out. Compared to a lot of the resale properties in that
area, it's a pretty darn good value.
What the NSF fee is to a bank (big buck revenue) regulation is
to our government. Regulations are designed to generate
revenue in case you have not noticed. For example even though I am
licensed with my state and working for a licensed company I have to
FOR A FEE take a national test to see if after 25 years I know what
I am doing. That's government regulation.
FEMA is the most recent to assault our industry (behind Summers,
Timmy G, our friend the AG of NY Cuomo, Shaun Donovan (HUD), Barney
Frank and the soon departing Chris Dodd) and decided to update
their flood maps. So what does this mean for you? Your property may
be in a flood plain and you will be compelled to purchase
You can apply for flood insurance through your insurance
agent however you are really purchasing it from your very own
government. So if you live in an area that has flooding nearby you
may have been put in the flood plain and a policy will have to be
purchased by you from the government. Your lender may contact you
and request flood insurance be added to your existing policy.
Here is the link to check to see if your property is now in a
If you are in a flood plain then it is a good idea to
purchase flood insurance but if you believe the map is incorrect
(and many maps are for a variety of reasons) you can at your
expense have your property surveyed to determine the topography or
layout of the land in context to your home and flooding. It is not
cheap but in the long run if you don't flood it will save you a
pile of money.
