Mark Your Calendars:
Changes Ahead for Mortgage Financing, 1/26 
     Both FHA and Fannie Mae (Conventional Loans) have recently announced upcoming changes that will kick-in on January 26, 2015 ...  
     FHA has announced a 50 Basis Point reduction in Monthly Mortgage Insurance costs to Borrowers, resulting in most cases, a half-percent cut on MI charges.  
     An example of cost reduction realized:  
     A $200,000 Loan reaps an $83.33 per month savings.  That reduced Mortgage Insurance payment savings gives a Borrower MORE buying power,perhaps as much as $17,000 in price and/or loan approval.  
     It also means the Borrower realizes a reduction in their Debt-to-Income (DTI) Ratio … (16 comments)

hud: Buying Homes Owned by Banks & Gov. Agencies: What Benefit Might Exist - 03/19/14 03:44 AM
Buying Homes Owned by Banks and Government Agencies: What Benefits Might Exist       
     Property Sellers are often showing up on real estate contracts these days as Entities or Companies, not as human beings.  Government Agencies including Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, HUD, VA,  and banks are as well.
     The housing inventory has been low (at least in Chicagoland housing markets), as local Sellers have been reluctant or incapable of taking a hit financially from lower housing values and sales prices.  Recent trends point to increasing housing values from 2013 and into 2014, and we've been seeing … (8 comments)

hud: Will it be FHA or Conventional Financing? Weighing Financing Options after the April 18th, 2011 Changes - 04/21/11 11:50 AM

Will it be FHA or Conventional Financing?
    Weighing Financing Options after the April 18th, 2011 Changes                   Considering the speed in which changes are occurring in the mortgage industry currently, I'm getting hard-pressed to find a new headline that will catch a new home buyer's eye or interest.         Another change?         Ho-Hum ... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz                   But THIS change that took place as of April 18th, 2011?  HUD   increasing  FHA Monthly Mortgage Insurance  by another 1/4%?  It's a change that's going to shake-up the home buying plans and dreams of many new home buyers moving forward.    … (16 comments)

hud: Appraisals & the HVCC ... Are You Frustrated With the Current Hassles? - 06/22/10 06:34 AM

     Appraisal issues continue to be a problem for competing Lenders, Banks, and Mortgage Brokers.  I receive calls from Attorneys and Realtors ... even Borrowers themselves (after the loan has not closed through a competing lender), asking, "What can you do to help this situation"?  Currently, this is happening more often that you would think ... or like.
     I definitely do not mind receiving phone calls or pleas for assistance regarding this issue.  I'm always happy to have a chance to help and also grow my business.  And, this is a problem where I think I hold a definite edge over many … (33 comments)
