New Mortgage Program Helps Those Suffering from Significant Adverse Credit Buy Again

New Mortgage Program Helps Those Suffering from Significant 
Adverse Credit Buy Again     In a continuation of a recent loosening of home financing guidelines, I now can offer "expanded programs" for Borrowers with Credit Scores (middle score) of 580 (FHA Loans) and 600 (Conventional Loans).

     These new options apply to:  Purchase Transactions of 1-to-4 residential units ... for Buyers use as a Primary Residence (Owner-Occupied).

     Allowances are made for Borrowers having suffered past major events such as:
  • Bankruptcy
  • Short Sales
  • Foreclosures

     This program's Waiting Periods are reduced from those of traditional programs.  

     Be aware:  There are several caveats to this program.  Those caveats include "Risk-Related" guidelines for Down Payments, Credit Scores, and Debt-to-Income Ratios.   

     This is NOT a reversion to bad lending practices of the first decade of the 2000's.  

     These will be very common-sense Underwriting deals.  Down Payment requirements of at least 15% or more will be required depending on Credit Scores.  

     The lowest Credit Score Buyers will need a substantial Down Payment of 25% or more and the loans will be either a:
  • 30-year Fixed Rate term 
  • 7/1 ARM
     These requirements will be in place to maintain stability of monthly payment amounts and the risk to the Borrower ...


     Borrowers most likely to take advantage of this program will be those that have:
  • Stability within their employment 
  • Stability in their income
  • Possess reasonable debt  
  • Have had an "event" (such as those listed above) during recent years ... or suffered financial misfortunes during the last 10 years.

     Misfortunes considered for this program include:
  • Loss of Home Value
  • Income Reduction
  • Layoff from Employment
  • Job Loss 
  • Etc.

     This program allows (with Qualifying Conditions), financing for a home purchase in the following cases:

  • 2-Years AFTER a Bankruptcy Discharge, Chapter 7 or Chapter 11
  • 1-Year AFTER a Bankruptcy Discharge/History - Chapter 13
  • 2-Years AFTER a Foreclosure (waiting period measured from the date of the action/judicial sale)
  • 1-Year AFTER a Short Sale, measured by the Closing Date on the Sold Property

     The minimum loan amount in this program is $150,000.  

     Please Note:  Several Underwriting Requirements must be met to qualify for this program.  It is NOT an "anything goes" loan product.  Those who qualify will have to meet stringent requirements and risk of lending will be weighed heavily during the process.

     Also Note:  This product may not be available in all states.

     Should you want more detailed information regarding this program and your ability to utilize its benefits, please contact me.  This program could provide the path back to homeownership that you've been looking for ...

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…
