Good Credit but No Down Payment? There's a Loan for That!
So, Warren Buffet spends more on dinner than you make in a month, and you've never required the services of an investment banker, but you have good credit and you long to own your own home. What if we told you that there is a mortgage loan program out there for people just like you and (here's the best part) it requires no down payment?

lodi: Does social media sell homes? - 02/19/14 10:52 AM
Does social media sell homes?
Millions of people use social media (ie. facebook, google+, twitter, ect.) on a daily basis, even multiple times a day.  We are surrounded by computers, tablets, and cell phones that connect us to friends, families, and businesses alike.  In this high tech society, many selling techniques have changed.  Long gone are the paper printouts on a sign post in front of a house.  They have been replaced by clients texting for information, pictures and a virtual tour.  Long  gone is the idea that you MUST advertise your  listing in the newspaper for maximum exposure.  This has been replaced … (2 comments)

lodi: Budgeting to Buy a Home - 02/08/14 01:34 AM
Budgeting to Buy a Home
 
No matter how good the credit rating, today's homebuyer no longer has the luxury of buying with little or zero down. Unless you are low-income with good credit, or a veteran, no-down loans are also a thing of the past.
Most lenders today want at least 20 percent of the loan amount as a down payment on a house. For a home priced between $168,300 and $287,500, a homebuyer would need to come up with between $33,660 and $57,500 just for a down payment. Then, there are closing costs to consider. These vary by state, but … (0 comments)

Although often overlooked, a roof is one of the most critical elements of your home. If you're in the market to replace an old roof, or planning to build a new one, you have several common roofing types to choose from. Here's what you need to consider when comparing four popular roofing choices.
Asphalt Shingles Easy to work with, modern asphalt shingles come in a wide variety of colors and styles. The traditional three-tab asphalt shingle – a form of strip asphalt shingles – still outsells newer architectural asphalt shingles, a thicker, heavier shingling that … (0 comments)

lodi: Understanding FHA-Insured Loans - 02/08/14 01:29 AM
Understanding FHA-Insured Loans
One of the few blessings to come out of the Great Depression was the FHA-insured loan. Although, contrary to what many think, it wasn't created to help low-income buyers get into homeownership. Just as during our recent Great Recession, during the Depression foreclosure rates skyrocketed, leaving lenders in the lurch. The FHA-insured loan was created to protect lenders from losses should the economy once again tank.
That said, the borrower does receive benefits from the loan. First, she benefits from the meticulous appraisal of the home, and second, from the low down payment requirements and attractive interest rates … (0 comments)

Decorating the Modern-Day Laundry Room
Gone are the days when sterile white was an unspoken mainstay. In the modern laundry room, anything goes! From color selections to wall décor, go bold to show off individuality and personality. Cover the basics in terms of appliances, organization and functionality, and then let creativity rule to help build a workable space that's also enjoyable to be in.
Cover the Basics There are a few obvious features that should be included in every laundry room. A washer and dryer, ironing board and utility sink are obvious "musts." Consider functional placement of these items to ensure … (0 comments)

Do you drive Highway 12 from Lodi to Highway 5??  Did you know you could get a $288 fine plus traffic school if you do not have your head lights on?  Yes this means during the day!  So many people, me included, drive that stretch of 12 not thinking twice about my headlights.  It wasn't until a friend of mine told me that he got pulled over and given a ticket for not having his headlights on at 12:30 in the afternoon.  He complained to me that it was sunny out and there were no adverse conditions, so we looked it … (0 comments)
