You want the facts, and nothing but the facts? I'm proud to be a part of this group that is helping clients, realtors and anyone in the real estate/mortgage industry get the right answers!
Are you a consumer with some questions, but not sure who to ask?
Are you a realtor who has questions or scenarios, and possibly work with a good loan officer, but could use some extra feedback?
You have some outside sites such as Trulia, Zillow, or even Active Rain, to where you can ask such questions? But what happens if you get like 7 answers and 3 of them are varying or different. And who is to say that you can trust such answers. I see many questions on Trulia that are answered incorrectly, and even the mortgage questions answered by realtors. Sorry, but if I were a consumer reading this, not knowing any differently and took those answers as gold, as correct... I could be in some serious trouble down the road. Example :
I have seen where one realtor told a borrower that FHA loans were better than USDA loans. Say what? First off, that shouldn't come from a realtor. Secondly, in most cases, the USDA loan will be better. Reminder : Each borrower is different.
I read an answer by a realtor that said you should put 20% down. Sorry, but I disagree with that comment for several reasons. One main point is that cash is king in today's economy, even if you have it. I gave many reasons why in this post. - Don't be cash poor - Cash is King Part 2 of 3 -
Overall, the problem with the internet and such sites as Trulia, is that anyone can answer questions. And I have seen my share of incorrect or misleading posts on mortgage information on the internet. Not saying that I am God or that I know it all, but if I am not sure, I verify it through reliable sources. So with that said, I put together a group of 9 loan officers from abroad, all representing different mortgage companies, and that we have over 150 years combined in the mortgage industry.
