October 3rd, 3015 TRID Changes: A Team Mentality is Vital for Success

October 3rd, 2015 TRID Changes: 
A Team Mentality is Vital for Success

     By now, I'm sure you've heard about the BIG changes coming to home buying and mortgage financing ...  
     Those changes are called Tila-Respa Integrated Disclosures, or TRID for short.  

     They take effect on October 3, 2015 and include ALL Residential Mortgage Loan Applications taken on and after that date. 

     Long talked-about prior to their effective date, these changes are being put into place to help Buyers and Sellers educate themselves and become more informed about their real estate transaction and mortgage process.  The 3-day Disclosure Period (minimumwithin these TRID changes is meant to provide more time to clients when receiving exact costs related to their loan.  The hopes are that this will result in an extra layer of protection to those borrowing money when buying or refinancing a home. 

     Much has been written in regards to the pros and cons of these new changes, both from a consumer's point of view and the professional one.  But many concerns raised can be addressed and overcome if everyone involved in the transaction practices a "team" effort and mentality.  

     What do I mean by that?

     Consistent, clear communication between all parties will help facilitate progress within the transaction.  Discussions between Lender and Realtor regarding realistic Closing Dates will become more important than ever.  

     Here in the Chicagoland area, it's my opinion that transactions should be factored for 45 days, at least until these changes are adjusted to.  

     Communication between agent and lender will become especially critical when determining Closing Dates.  If the deal goes smoothly, closings can occur in less than those 45 days.

     Attorneys, a component of many Chicagoland (Illinois) transactions, will now be heavily depended upon to provide Title Commitments and other documentation in a timely fashion. 

     Notification of Attorney's Fees, and billing for other documentation or services, must also be reported much earlier in the process upon the implementation of these TRID changes.

     Again, the need for a team mentality throughout the entire process cannot be over-stressed.  If one person involved within the transaction (professional or client)  "drops the ball" or fails to perform to the new standards, the Closing Date could be delayed.  

  • Good communication  
  • Complete cooperation between parties  
  • Consistent teamwork  
     If these 3 things are enacted successfully, there should be no major problems regarding the new TRID rules come October 3rd ...

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…
