VA Loans: For Those that Serve, Honor and Protect


VA Loans:  
For Those that Serve, Honor and Protect


     
     Home.  A small, simple word that wields undeniable impact and emotion ...  

     After working with many veterans over the years, I've come to believe that U.S. soldiers ... those that have served to protect us and our way of life ... know the meaning and immense power of the word "home" better than most.  And as a result, their desire to have a home to call their own is more keenly felt.

     They've more than earned the right.  The VA benefits offered them are their due.  They've put everything on the line.  Helped protect our homes and homeland.  Certainly helping them to buy and enjoy a home of their own is the least we can do in repayment for their sacrifice.  

     In keeping with that trust ... and in exchange for their serving their country honorably, the U.S. veteran is provided the right to buy a home enjoying these benefits:


  • NO Money Down Financing
  • Mortgage Insurance Exemption
  • Closing Cost Savings.  Some Closing Costs simply CAN'T be charged to a Veteran Borrower

     Since Closing Costs and pre-paid items do exist (such as Reserves for Real Estate Taxes and Insurance, Interest for the month the Closing occurs, and Lenders and Title Company Fees) regulations and guidelines allow for a Closing Cost CREDIT of up to 4% of the Purchase Price be paid by the Seller at the time of Closing.


     Yep, you read that right.  Literally, Veteran Buyers can, in the case where the Sellers are paying Closing Costs, come to Closing with little or NO MONEY.

     The qualified U.S. Veteran is entitled to:


  • Competitive Interest Rates
  • NO Money Down options
  • NO Mortgage Insurance Required  
  • Closing Cost, Pre-Paid Escrow and Interest Credits from Sellers up to 4%
  • An exemption from certain Closing Costs being charged to them

     They protect our homes.  We as grateful citizens assist them in buying one of their own.  
Sure sounds like more than a fair deal to me ...

Love Your New Construction .. But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

Love Your New Construction ... But Educate Yourself About Future Tax Bills

*I want to preface this article by saying it's geography specific to the Chicagoland Area and its collar counties ...


So you've opted for building or buying a newly constructed home ... 

You've decided you'll invest most, or all, of your savings to cover Down Payment and Closing Costs.After all, it's a new home, you hopefully won't need money for repairs or improvements for quite a while, right?  

Plus:  The property taxes for your newly constructed home will initially be lower, as they'll be based upon the vacant lot on which your new home is built.  (The new home wasn't completed yet for the previous tax year's bill.) 

But how does this affectyour future tax bill and the tax portion of your monthly mortgage escrow payment?

When obtaining financing:  During your first year of a new construction occupancy, the real estate tax portion of your escrow account is based upon the last av…

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.
