kannapolis: $8000 tax credit as downpayment... HUD says program NOT killed! - 05/21/09 04:58 AM
According to my lender sources and The Arizona Herald article "HUD says bridge-loan program hasn't been killed", HUD is still moving forward with a plan to let first-time homebuyers use the currently available tax credit of up to $8,000 as collateral for "bridge loans" to cover the down payment on FHA insured mortgages.
According to the article, HUD spokesperson Brian Sullivan stated that the program details haven't been finalized and would not say when the bridge-loan program would be initiated, or whether it would be substantially different from what originally was announced.
Let's all keep our fingers crossed that this program will be … (9 comments)

kannapolis: You're facing foreclosure- is a short sale the answer? - 10/18/08 03:12 AM
Many homeowners are finding that their home's current market value is less than they paid for it.  Even more tragically, the value of their home is less than the loan payoff.  They always heard that home values will go up over time, they thought they were building equity in their home... thus saving for retirement or for a down payment to move up to a larger home in a few years.
If possible, home owners should stay in their home, keep their mortgage current and ride out the "mortgage crisis".  Most specialists are predicting that the real estate market will turn around in time.  However, some home owners find … (4 comments)

kannapolis: BARGAIN Prices for Short Sale Properties in Kannapolis NC - 10/06/08 10:16 AM
                    
A short sale occurs when the proceeds of a real estate sale fall short of the balance owed on the property.  In a short sale, the bank or mortgage lender agrees to discount a loan balance due to an economic or financial hardship on the part of the mortgagor. This negotiation is all done through communication with a bank's Loss mitigation department.  A Realtor can help you through this process and negotiate with the bank on your behalf.

What does this mean for you as a BUYER? Because of the current mortgage crisis and the large number of homes … (0 comments)
