CONDO APPROVALS If you own or are looking to buy a Condo/Townhome with an association or management fee collected, you will want to be aware of a potential issue regarding financing. The majority of lenders will require that the condo association provide proof of financial stability and other reporting before you can obtain mortgage financing. FHA maintains a list of approved associations, but the list contains only about 25% of all condos! Many of the previously approved condos had their approvals revoked or expired in 2011 & they failed to re-apply, or could not qualify. Realtors & owners/buyers can look here to see if their condo is approved: https://entp.hud.gov/idapp/html/condlook.cfm    (This is the official HUD site.) or http://www.fhaapprovedcondomap.com/east-coast/ (this is a g...

Toms River is the 7th largest municipality in New Jersey and prides itself on its 242-year old history that has laid the foundation for the township to become the seat of Ocean County, which is the second largest county in New Jersey.   Toms River's is midway between New York, Philadelphia and a short distance from Atlantic City. Since the mid 1800's, Toms River's rural farming, fishing and boat-building area has grown from a 2,700 populace to today's 95,000 residents. Toms River is not only a wonderful place to live but also an attractive place to visit, with miles of Atlantic Ocean on Toms River's Ortley and Normandy beaches. Aside from oceanfront fun, Toms River's Silverton section and the Toms River itself spill into the Barnegat Bay, making the township a fine boating and fishing h...

  Home Affordability: Continued   My previous post on affordability I went back as far as 1989 to compare to today. For today’s addition we will look at more recent history. The chart below is a quick look at the last 6 years: What does that all mean? Well, it is pretty simple: The price is the Median price of a home in 2006 and in 2012. The Rate: That’s where rates were in 2006 and where Rates are today. The payment: That is a little more complicated: This goes on the assumption of a Conventional loan with 20% down, and that is the Principal and interest payment based on the rate above for that 80ltv loan. So in 2006 it would cost $439 more per month to buy the same hypothetical median priced home than it would cost today. Let’s put a little perspective on that number.  I would anticip...

  I saw an article earlier today that mentioned how complacent buyers are getting when it comes to rates. I couldn't agree more. People are thinking rates in the 3's are the norm, while any of us in the business for any period of time know that is not the case. Just for fun, I ran a few numbers- Today vs. 1989. the chart below goes back quite a bit further, but 1989 is near and dear to me. Why 1989? Well, that is when I purchased my first house.My first mortgage was at 11.25% and that was a good rate as I was in the business a few years already. So based on the historically accurate facts: A $100,000 30 year Mortgage at that rate was $971.26/month, So let's compare that to today: Last week I locked a few people in at 3.25% for a 30yr fixed. That would be $435.21/month. for $100,000. $53...

  Understanding your credit score     Your credit score is more important than ever. It can affect everything from Insurance, to your job and your ability to be approved for a loan and the rate you get when borrowing. Credit scores range from 300-850. Scores below 620 are considered bad, above 680 good, above 750 excellent. The biggest piece of your score is the obvious, payment history, but this only accounts for 35% of your score. The second biggest piece revolves around your balances and is where people most often get hurt. 30% of your score is based on your available balances. The other way to look at this piece would be your balance in relationship to limit. This isn’t based on the dollar amount, it is purely percentage.Typically you want your balance to be below 20% of the limit d...

FOR BUYERS & REALTORS One of the biggest obstacles we face today in processing mortgage applications is obtaining proof of assets for funds to close the deal.   Many buyers have multiple bank accounts, stocks, bonds, CD’s, Gifts, etc.  They often make large deposits, transfer money, and sometimes they even want to use cash when buying a home. This is often the biggest issue we have when trying to complete a file on time- documenting all the money!   Underwriting guidelines strictly require a full paper trail of any & all assets to be used to fund the purchase of a home. There are laws we must follow to prevent money laundering, criminal activity, funding of terrorism, etc. We need to warrant to the end investor that any funds used towards the purchase come from an allowable source, and ...
