douglas county wi: Applying for a mortgage loan - 12/11/13 11:05 PM
Applying for a mortgage loan
After choosing your Realtor, and before shopping for a home, choose a lender and get preapproved for a loan.
Remember, getting preapproved is based on a preliminary review of your credit information and preapproves you up to a maximum loan amount. Because a preapproval includes a credit check, it’s more powerful than prequalification, which only estimates your potential buying power. Getting preapproved first will help you to focus your search for homes that fit your price range.
Once you have an accepted offer to purchase a home, the next step is to set up a loan … (1 comments)

douglas county wi: Choosing a mortgage lender - 12/11/13 10:48 PM
Choosing a mortgage lender
Before making an offer, finding a mortgage lender for the new home is key for most buyers.
Most buyers may consider the lowest rate as the best way to choose the lender. Mortgages consist of more than interest rates. They include the rate plus origination fees and discount points, which are prepaid interest assessed by the lender at settlement. Other considerations might include adjustable vs fixed-rate loans, low down payment vs high down payment, and whether there are prepayment penalties.
Most important to the financial considerations, you will want to work with a lender you can trust, … (0 comments)

douglas county wi: Minong Flowage Dam Repair November 2013 Update - 12/07/13 10:40 PM
Minong Flowage Dam Repair Update
The latest Minong Flowage repair update is now on the Washburn County website.
The Minong Flowage dam repair project is now underway.  The Minong-Cranberry Flowage system has been drawn down by almost five feet, and the water will remain at that level throughout the summer and early autumn.
So what does all this mean if you’re thinking of buying or selling on the Minong Flowage or Cranberry lake?  And who’s paying for the dam?  If you’re thinking of buying a home or cabin on these lakes, should you worry about special assessments?
As you might expect, the real estate market … (0 comments)

douglas county wi: What type of mortgage loan works best for you? - 12/04/13 11:44 PM
What type of mortgage loan works best for you?
Your mortgage loan consultant will be able to discuss the best mortgage loan program for you. Basically all mortgage loans belong to two main groups: conventional and government.
Conventional loans
Two types of conventional loans:
Fixed rate: Traditional type of financing. The interest stays the same for the full term of the loan, typically 15 or 30 years with predictable and stable payments. Adjustable rate: An adjustable rate mortgage (ARM) interest is linked to a financial index, such as a treasury security, so the monthly payment can vary over the life of … (0 comments)

douglas county wi: How to buy in a NW Wisconsin real estate market in transition - 12/04/13 02:38 AM
Don't wait, the time to buy is now: Tips for a NW Wisconsin real estate market in transition
I have several buyers who are patiently watching the MLS listings for an especially good deal.  I’ve also been passing along listings that seem like a good fit.  Sometimes buyers have been ready to move quickly, and that’s paid off.
Other buyers were busy with work and family commitments, and they needed to wait a couple weeks before we could schedule a showing.  Sometimes that still works out.  But on at least half a dozen occasions during the past few months, I’ve asked for … (0 comments)

douglas county wi: Why wait til Spring? This fall is a great time to buy your NW Wisconsin home or cabin. - 10/13/13 12:58 AM
Right now is a great time to find your new home, cabin, or recreational property in Northwestern Wisconsin.  Summer is over, autumn is slipping away, and many buyers have decided to sit on the sidelines until spring.  An even smarter strategy, though, is to get serious about your search right now.

Here’s why:  If you’re planning to wait until spring before beginning or resuming your search, remember that a lot of other buyers are doing the same.  Sellers are very aware of this, and some have resigned themselves to not seeing much more activity until April. But once April arrives, they’ll … (0 comments)
