Kansas City Mortgage Tips

I recently had the opportunity to speak with the Kansas City Star and give some honest updates about the mortgage industry in the Kansas City area. We helped get the word out that people are still buying homes, rates are rock bottom LOW, and some can get a fantastic deal on mortgage rates if they take the right steps. For anyone interested in reading the article, here's the link:

 What We Covered with the KC Star - Our Kansas City Mortgage Tips.

We were able to give a lot of great snippets of advice for any home buyer interested in the current loan landscape. We encouraged VA loan for veterans, reminding them of 100% financing and no PMI.

We also touched on the fact that the 3.5% down payment for FHA loans can come from family members. Many home buyers don't realize this - but it can be the difference between someone going for it and someone holding out and not buying a home. If any agents out there have clients who may qualify for the FHA loan, remind them of this great benefit!

We gave some tips for keeping a good credit score, and credit repair. We offer lots of advice through our website and our blog posts about becoming "mortgage ready."

And last - well, before we get into some personal stuff like where I happen to live - I talk about the importance of working with a local lender. Some first time home buyers, among other buyers, may not realize the difference that working with a local lender can make. But, it really can make the mortgage process go smoothly if everyone is local, can get in touch with one another, and have that extra level of personal service that you miss when dealing with a large online company.

I hope you enjoy reading this quick Q&A that was featured in the KC Star! I appreciate the opportunity!

Darren, there are MANY people who do not realize they can receive downpayment assistance from family. I currently have a client whose parents will be the buyers, and then the parents will lease it back to them. That works as well!!
