More Good News for High-End Well-Qualified Buyers

More Good News for High-End 
Well-Qualified Buyers
     JUMBO Loans, and the advantageous interest rates they have been enjoying, have been in the news quite often over the past few months.  

     These loans have continued to be a good bargain in comparison to the past, due to current rate climate and Lenders' appetites for high-end, high-performance loans to well-qualified Borrowers.  

     Great!  But for my American Portfolio Mortgage Corp. customers, existing or new, the news just got even better ...


     Generally, loans above 80% of the Sales Price/Appraised Value (whichever is less) have been required to carry Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI).  With American Portfolio Mortgage Corp.'s new CORE JUMBO Program ... clients will NOT be required to have Private Mortgage Insurance.

     This option is available to any of my Borrowers with the following qualification:  
  • Borrower must be capable of putting down 10.1% of the Purchase Price ... up to $1.5 Million Loan Amounts

     Also:  Specific qualifications must be met on the following:
  • Credit Score
  • Housing Payment History
  • Employment History
  • Debt-to-Income

     The loan type will be a 5/1 ARM.  Funds for down payment will be verified.  Funds must come from the Borrower's own funds*.   

     Note: * There is a minimum of 5% that must be the Occupying Borrower's own funds.     Other benefits to the APMC CORE JUMBO Program include higher loan amounts and/or allowed for lower Credit Score Borrowers with larger down payments (20% or more down).   

     Credit Scores can be as low as 700 ...

     Borrowers with high incomes, relatively mobile in their employment/professions, and experiencing challenges in amassing a 20% down payment, will especially benefit from the flexibility of American Portfolio Mortgage Corp.'s new CORE JUMBO Program.

     The following special features are also included within the APMC CORE JUMBO Program:

  • Second Home Buyers can participate, but must comply to program restrictions
  • Investors can also participate, but also must comply to  program restrictions 
  • Traditional (Warrantable) Condominiums are eligible

     As with most financing programs, certain restrictions do apply.  Please contact me to see how my APMC CORE JUMBO Program can prove beneficial to you and to seek a customized review of your personal financial scenario ... State restrictions do apply...

Property Addresses: Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Property Addresses:   Gettin' Down to the Nitty Gritty

Take just a second and read through the following statements ...

“The devil is in the details” 
... "in life, it is often the tiny details that end up 
being the most important"

"Get Down To The Nitty Gritty"

“Little details have special talents in 
creating big problems!” 

“Sweat the details”

"Success is the sum of details"

Details ...Details ... it's all about the details ...
     And I'll admit it, I'm a bit of a nerd about them.  My whole family is.  Details, the intricacies, the little things ... they matter to us.
When I was growing up, a typical conversation (and argument) between my brothers and myself at the dinner table or in the backyard centered around "details".  It didn't matter what the topic was, it was the minor differences ... the details about the topic ... that we argued about.  I'm sure we drove our parents crazy.

Ready for Fall? It's Arriving Soon

Ready for Fall?  It's Arriving Soon

Friend ...

Maybe it's because football season has started. Maybe it's the kids being back in school. Or because the night air is cooler. But a sense of Fall has arrived here in Chicagoland ...

The Fall Season brings changes with it. Changes in temperatures. Changes to the clothing we wear. Our focus seems to shift with the coming of shorter days, falling leaves, and crisp air.

Fall can be the perfect time to do a multitude of things. You can prep your home for the upcoming winter weather ... or for Fall listing and sale. 

But whether you're moving on or staying put, Fall is a great time to declutter and organize your home inside and out ... and your finances too.

I've googled like crazy to find interesting articles filled with Fall info, ideas, tips, and photos. Articles that will help you usher the Fall Season in at your house. I hope you enjoy reading the articles offered below and that they inspire you to make any needed changes.


Paper or Paperless billing? Which serves YOUR needs best?

Paper or Paperless billing?  Which serves YOUR needs best?

These days, companies are under pressure to go "green" and become more environmentally friendly.  As a result, an increasing number of businesses are offering their customers a paperless option with which to receive and pay their bills. 

There are obviously many positives to be found within these paperless services:

Trees are saved  Reduced postage costs  Less paper documentation to organize or save/storePossible rewards for switching to paperlessPayments can often be made/posted same-dayAutomated payments can be set-upMore
But I can tell you from my vantage point as a Chicagoland/IL/WI Mortgage Originator, there are also negatives to be found within paperless methods.  For some of my mortgage clients, the choice of going "paperless" just hasn't worked well.

 For some, an email or text reminder regarding payment of bills has not been enough. They NEED a paper billing to arrive in their mail. 

Their paper bil…
