How Jason & Cindy Saved 6 Months of Time and $4,350!by Dan Weis, Cincinnati Realtor, Home Buyer SpecialistCincinnati, OH Real Estate
Jason and Cindy came to me last summer ready to stop paying rent of $725/month and buy their first home.  They had been renting an apartment in the Cincinnati area for 3 years and were sick of it.  I recommended that they meet with a mortgage consultant, who would review their financial situation, including their credit scores and discuss 4 different mortgage options with them, based on their life plans for the next 5 - 10 years.  They found an FHA program that … (2 comments)

cincinnati real estate: Mortgage Modifications Gone Bad... - 09/15/09 04:58 AM
Story after story talks about how homeowners, who are attempting to modify their adjustable interest rate home loans to lower their payments, are now watching their monthly payments skyrocket.  
Please don't get an adjustable rate mortgage (A.R.M.)!  
I just read a story about a couple in AZ with a $550,000 home and they are trying to get a loan modification, because their interest rate is going to adjust (UP) to over $1,000 more per month.  Most Americans cannot afford a jump in monthly payment like that.  
When you are looking to purchase a home, only apply for a fixed interest … (3 comments)

cincinnati real estate: Is A Condo A Good Fit For You? - 12/27/07 09:29 AM
I'm often asked the pros & cons of condo living.There's really no "one size fits all" answer!I can share some insight with you, because my wife, Amy, and I owned a condo before we had children. We actually moved 4 times in 10 years. Yes, it must have been an occupational hazard. Our first home was a starter Cape Cod. Then we fell in love with a new condo community near Sharon Woods - close where I grew up. Next, our son came and we moved to a 2-story. Finally, after wanting a kid-friendly backyard, we moved to a neighborhood with … (0 comments)

cincinnati real estate: Cincinnati Home Buying Tip #7 - 12/20/07 05:18 PM
ARMs Can Be Dangerous To Your Wealth!
In my opinion, most home buyers today should not sign up for an Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM), because there are too many downsides to them.An ARM assumes that you expect your income to continue to increase each year, so that when your mortgage interest rate adjusts, you can afford the additional payment increases. There are times when you may fall in love with a home and with a fixed rate mortgage, it's just out of your reach financially. Well, a mortgage lender then comes along and says that by getting an adjustable rate mortgage, … (0 comments)

Credit card companies are smart and sneaky! You have to be vigilant and make sure that you're paying attention to all of your credit cards. One mistake can cost you thousands of dollars in the long-term. Credit card companies are looking for you to make a mistake and then they'll be able to raise your interest rate. Here are some things to watch out for:
Don't pay your bills late or try to cut it too close - it may not get processed in time and then it could show up as a RED FLAG on … (0 comments)

Are You Protecting Yourself Legally?
One of the common mistakes home buyers make in the Cincinnati real estate market is not having access to legal counsel during their home buying process. While it's very common to not have real estate attorneys involved in a typical real estate transaction in the Cincinnati area, I believe there are at least 2 times, where their services should be utilized to protect your interests.
Have your real estate attorney review your purchase agreement prior to submitting an offer to the seller or write a contingency clause in your offer that allows your real estate attorney … (0 comments)

Surround Yourself With Professionals
When I began my real estate career in 1985, we used one page contracts...no property disclosures...no fax machines...MLS book came out once every 2 weeks...no property searches on a computer...we had to drive to real estate offices wherever they were to pick up a house key for a showing and then return it...So much has changed.But as time goes on, technology changes, the market changes, paperwork changes, etc. It all gets more detailed and complex. Expectations are raised. People want to know everything about a property...before making a decision.What this leads me to is the fact that … (0 comments)
