Defects You May Overlook When Buying A House

15 Sep

Defects You May Overlook When Buying A House.  You love the house, but conventional wisdom will lead you to identifying defects that you do not want to overlook in your excitement about buying your house. Buying a house is one of the most important personal and financial decisions you’ll make.

Your home and its location will help define you and your family and will be the focal point for most of the activities of your lives for years to come.

Here are five strategies to identify defects that could be overlooked in the purchase of a house:

1. First, review the Inspect America Engineering website:

[www.inspectamerica.com]

This site is a wealth of information for you to understand when buying a house. One of the best features of this website is their extensive checklist for home inspections. You can print off all the pages and place in a binder for you to identify house defects.

2. Rely upon the expertise of a qualified licensed professional engineer (P.E) home inspector.
There are businesses out there offering their services for home inspections, but you should hire one with the P.E. certification.

3. Attend the inspection so that you understand all aspects of what to watch for. This is more helpful than reading a report.

4. Be sure to get a full written report from the inspector telling you, in detail, what is wrong, why it’s wrong, and what must be done to correct the identified defects. That checklist described in the #1 strategy is just to orient you. You will need an actual report, not a checklist when it comes to having real information to create that total picture of the house’s condition.

5. That detailed report from the licensed professional engineer will establish a professional relationship with that engineer so that you can go back to the engineer with further questions, advice, and direction.

Buying a house that you carefully select and have inspected is the best proactive step any homebuyer can take. Identifying defects, especially the hidden ones, can eliminate much of the uncertainty of your future in that house.

In order to help you remain an informed home buyer here is a list of some of the house defects that can be overlooked:

a) structural additions and renovations – that were most likely installed by the previous home owner

b) defective furnace heat exchangers

c) extensive water damage or leaks that can lead to structural damage

d) electrical concerns that do not meet current standards

e) irregularities in the: roof framing, exterior wall framing, interior framing, cracks in the foundation wall

f) proper grading of land around the home – to divert water away from the home to prevent the water from entering the home

There is nothing like peace of mind when it comes to making big decisions about which house to buy.

Life after bankruptcy and qualifiying for a home

29 Aug

Life after Bankruptcy and Qualifying for a Home.   Bankruptcy can help relieve you of your debts and stop harassing creditors from contacting you but have you thought about life after bankruptcy? Will you be able to qualify for a new home?

You can be approved for a new mortgage at a normal interest rate within 24 to 30 months after your discharge. If you can prove the bankruptcy was caused by medical reasons or a divorce you probably can be approved much sooner. But there are qualifications that you must meet to get a new mortgage and this all depends upon how you re-established yourself after the bankruptcy discharge.

Even if you don’t meet all the qualifications you can still get a mortgage but it will come with a higher interest rate and a larger down payment. Lenders will be inquiring about your finances and looking to see if you’ve paid your bills on-time since the bankruptcy.

So How Much Credit is Enough?

If mortgaging a new home, it will take more than a bank card with a $500 limit to re-establish your credit. Begin by concentrating on the necessities and time will work miracles. Start establishing the following:

1.    Bank checking and savings account
2.    A secured credit card from a reputable institution
3.    An auto loan

You will need at least 3 credit references since your bankruptcy.

Put Your Financial House in Order

It all starts with your money. Have you noticed that most people in dire financial straits seem to have everything? Large screen televisions, expensive appliances, fancy cars, etc? When you are discharged from bankruptcy you must cut expenses and stop throwing money away on useless things however the problem here lies with our mindset – we believe everything we have is a necessity; the new wardrobe, the mini-mansion, the over-priced automobile; you may very well deserve these things but if you can’t afford it you simply have to understand the obvious – You Can’t Afford It!

Did You Know –

After your bankruptcy discharge you can re-build your credit score within 24 months up to a high 800? But this requires paying all bills on time and securing new credit responsibilities to show that you’re ready.

I wish I could say that you’ll be automatically qualified but this all depends on what you’ve done since your bankruptcy and the lender’s guidelines.

Things that will Kill a Mortgage Loan Application

Start anticipating a bumpy ride; I know this sounds negative but it’s best to be prepared and after a bankruptcy it’s not a walk in the park. There are twists and turns but it will prove to be well worth the hassle so never give up.

There are things that will likely kill or just delay your chances for a new mortgage;

1.    Poor credit since bankruptcy
2.    High debt to income ratio
3.    Job instability
4.    Tax liens or levies against your paycheck
5.    Insufficient down payment

Reality hurts sometimes but when you’ve been given a second chance you should know you have to prove yourself all over again. The most important thing here is to know that you must take a hard look at how you’re living and the work you must put into re-establishing your credit. This will improve your chances not only for a mortgage but living encumbered without the benefits of good credit.

Buying your first home in today’s market by Bold Real Estate Group

13 Jul

Buying My First Home in Today’s Market

Today’s real estate market offers some of the best opportunities if you’re buying your first home.  Low interest rates, a plethora of homes for sale and first time homebuyer programs offering tax incentives and enticing down payment and closing cost assistance to help you acquire your dream home.  But the preliminaries can become confusing and often deter many homebuyers.  Your first solution is to always work with a Realtor-Buyers Agent who offers FREE and exclusive Buyer Representation, because professional advice always outweighs a wing and a prayer.

Buying a home is one of the best investments in your life. It provides stability and it will become your primary tangible equity resource in your life.  I’ve always been told that if there is one permanent thing you could want it is a roof over your head.

The current market has its obstacles whereas everyone and anyone could get a mortgage loan two years ago and now the criterion has changed – for the better!  A good, stable and positive credit history is required accompanied by a healthy bank account. Lenders will heavily base their decision for a loan on your credit score and while these guidelines are not cast in stone, a score that is as close to 720 or higher is lined in gold and will get you closer to obtaining your dream home than a score in the mid-600’s.

While credit histories deter many homebuyers now is the time to begin working on improving your credit score.  Sure, it’s true that interest rates will go up some but why keep waiting to fix your credit history?  You just prolong ever becoming a home owner. Just think in a year what you can accomplish; programs will still be intact to help you with down payments and closing costs and your FICO credit score will be higher to qualify you.  And many people always think the worst when it comes to their credit history but until you actually speak to the professionals – a Realtor-Buyer’s Agent and a Lender – you’ll never know what position you’re in for a new home.

Do you really need to act that fast to get into a home?  Yes! Market indicators all suggest that the economy is standing steady but interest rates will undoubtedly not go lower than they are right now which means if you wait another six months to a year to purchase a home you could be looking to pay thousands of dollars more in interest.  This means a larger monthly mortgage payment, more of a down payment and a larger loan package. Not to mention once the real estate markets begin to become more stable home prices will start to inch back up.   Click Mortgage Calculator for quick estimate of mortgage payment.

Two years ago many people could not qualify for a single family home because their income was too low for such high-priced real estate but with today’s new home prices, first time home buyers are in a better position, especially with all the new programs to help you buy.

Every state has some program now that helps with either the down payment or closing costs.  There are guidelines and criteria to meet but for many this means realizing their dream that much quicker.

Understanding all of your options and the value of purchasing now is very important.  Today’s market is so advantageous that you can’t afford NOT to purchase a home.  Talk to a Realtor-Buyer’s Agent quick while homeownership is ripe for the taking!

The 4 Factors That Make Or Break Your Mortgage Loan Application By Bold Real Estate Group

25 May

There are 4 primary factors a loan processor will look at when you’re being considered for a mortgage loan. Many prospective buyers fail to take the time and review those factors that will be considered and this can lead to disappointment.

By having a clear understanding of your financial history you’ll be able to cleverly negotiate your loan terms.

Income & Employment

• What is your gross income?

This question is used to gauge your pre-tax and pre-deduction earnings. This is the baseline lenders use to determine the mortgage amount that you will qualify for.

• Do you make any overtime pay or bonuses?

This question is used to determine if you have any other income that can be utilized toward increasing the approval amount.

• How long have you been employed?

This question is used to weigh stability of your income. Individuals who jump careers every few years are considered to be a higher risk when it comes to loans than someone who has stayed at the same place of employment doing the same type of work for 24 months or longer.

Debt

• What is the minimum amount you pay toward all unsecured loans each month?

This question is used to determine the amount of disposable income a borrower has once all of their monthly financial obligations have been met. Unsecured debt applies to credit cards, personal loans, student loans, car payments or any other monthly payment currently being made to satisfy a debt.

• Do you have any debts in default or collection?

Your credit report will reveal the negatives, however, here is an opportunity to acknowledge extenuating circumstances for any negative debt. Not all negative items are a death sentence when it comes to a mortgage approval. This question is designed to help a loan officer assess your overall financial health,
Credit

Once a lender has pulled a borrower’s credit they may have questions on items that exist on a credit report. The most common questions are to verify and respond to negative items that exist.

Money for Move In

Lenders want to validate available assets that can be applied toward down payments and closing costs when making a home purchase. The more available funds a borrower has to close on a home the less of a risk they are considered meaning that they are more likely to obtain a loan. The following are some of the more common questions that a lender will ask in regard to money for move in.

• Do you have a savings account?

• How much is in your savings account?

• Do you have an IRA or a 401K that you could access for additional funds?

• Do you have a family member that would be willing to provide you funds as a gift for down payment or closing costs?

Lenders questions will vary from one borrower to another based on the buyer’s unique financial situation. However, this information can be utilized as a baseline guide for being prepared when applying for a mortgage.

New Incentives To Buy A Fannie Mae Foreclosed Home By Bold Real Estate Group

24 May

Everyone has heard how good of a deal you can get when you purchase a foreclosed home but just how good is “good” and how do you negotiate a good deal?

Finding the Deals

Remember that negotiation dealings will vary depending on the current stage of the foreclosure process.

• First, to get a great deal you should consider fixer-upper foreclosed homes for a higher profit margin. Fix the property up and instantly you’ll increase the value in the home. This type of distressed property can be purchased under market value with a renovation loan to take care of needed repairs.

• Check prices in the neighborhood. Your realtor will do comparisons of the most recent six-month period. You’ll want to stay at least 20 percent below the median price of recent sales in that neighborhood.

• Search bank websites since many list their foreclosed properties for sale online.

• Look up government-owned listings. HUD and Fannie Mae, just to name a few, both list their foreclosed properties online. Once you find a home you’re interested in, your agent will make an offer through the representing agent of that property. But the departments warn that the homes are sold “as is” and after the sale is made, the government is not responsible for any repairs or problems.

Negotiating with the seller (banks)

Find important clues to cleverly negotiate with the banks;

• Days on the market: How long has the property been in the market?

• Offers received: How many offers have been received so far? You may not necessarily get an exact figure, but it does not hurt to ask. Is the foreclosed house under contract or are there any pending offers? Was any contract canceled? Was it due to a financing contingency or inspection?

• Condition of the foreclosed property: Age of the house, roof, appliances, air-conditioning unit, water heater, etc.
While a foreclosure seems like a good deal, foreclosures can come with some downsides including homes that have liens against them. It can also be difficult or downright impossible to inspect foreclosed homes in advance of their sale, which means there’s no time to check if the basement is flooded or if there are any appliances left.

So while its harsh, it’s still true that you can benefit from others misfortunes by seeking homes reclaimed by lenders. While foreclosed properties do involve risk the bargains are way-to-good to pass up.

Knowing The Real Monthly Mortgage Payment A First Time Homebuyer Will Pay By Bold Real Estate Group

24 May

As a first time homebuyer, you will be exposed to hundreds or thousands of ads everyday; media stories, friends’ advice, and online mortgage calculators that will provide you with partial information. All of these sources will lead you to believe that you can have a larger home loan balance with what seems to be a very low monthly payment. Or they will show you a monthly payment that seems extremely affordable for what you are looking for, trying to hook you to make the purchase.

The underlying truth though is that most of these monthly mortgage payments that you will come across are not completely accurate. Most of the super low mortgage payments that you see advertised are targeted to a specific homebuyer who has perfect A credit and usually do not include Property Taxes or Homeowners Insurance that you will also need to pay for each month.

Marketing departments are very smart and will show these low payments just to generate leads.

The marketing ploys usually have a small fine print that tells a different story. These super low payments will typically require extremely high credit scores in the high 800s and at least a 20% down payment.

If you put less than 20% down, your monthly payment could then also include mortgage insurance to be added to your payment. Look closely in the fine print, if you can locate it and you will see all the requirements to qualify for that payment and what type of loan program it is.

An advertisement does not know what your credit score is or if you plan on putting down a down payment.

Your monthly mortgage payment will typically include Principle and/or Interest payments, Property Taxes, Homeowners (Hazard) Insurance and possibly even Mortgage Insurance. It is important to talk to your loan officer and find out exactly what your TOTAL monthly payment will be and what will be included in that payment.

Keep in mind too, that some neighborhoods will require you to pay a Home Owners Association fee or other Community specific fees each month on top of your monthly mortgage payment. If you are used to renting, you also may not realize all the different utility expenses that you will need to pay as a homeowners instead of a renter.

In order to keep your overall monthly expenses in your comfort zone, it is very important to know your TRUE monthly payments and expenses. You don’t want to buy your first home only to find that it is a financial burden. Buying your first home should be a great point in your life, not a financial nightmare.
