Have Credit Challenges? Don't Sell Yourself Short. Mortgage Options May be Available

Have Credit Challenges?
Don't Sell Yourself Short  
 Mortgage Options May be Available

     FACT:  Just because you faced credit issues in the past, doesn't mean you can't obtain an Approval on a home loan today ...

     I, (via, American Portfolio Mortgage Corp.) have an FHA loan option available for you if: 

  • 2 of the 3 credit scores on a mortgage credit report pull are 580 or higher.  
     Other positive factors must exist within your credit history ... and additional compensating factors must also be present when these lower credit scores are reported.

  • Employment history 
  • Reasonable debt 
  • Stable income 
  • Down payment of 3.5% (minimum
  • Reserves (money retained after Closing) ...
     Each of the above is a factor that could make a difference to an Underwriter when reviewing your file.  

     Also be aware:  Within my FHA option, your Down Payment can be in the form of Gift monies.       

     So, if you fill most of the criteria above, or aren't sure where you stand ... contact me. Be pre-approved.  That way, you have the facts regarding financing options available to you.     

     My goal as a Mortgage Originator is to assist those that are dreaming of becoming Homeowners.  Right now, way too many incorrectly assume they can't qualify for home loan financing.  Not true ...  

     Through this FHA mortgage option, the dream of home ownership can become reality.  Many I've spoken to have found that the Requirements demanded by this FHA loan program make home ownership possible and within their reach.

     In addition, many former Renters found that their monthly mortgage payment is less than their monthly rent was.  You owe it to yourself to see if that would be true for you too.

     Get the facts.  Only then will you have a complete understanding of the options available to you and be capable of making sound financial decisions.  Decisions that will prove beneficial to you both in the short term ... and long term.

     * Hoping to buy a home in Chicagoland, Illinois, or Wisconsin? Have concerns regarding your credit history or Credit Report? Contact me today. I'll put my 40+ years of mortgage experience and expertise hard to work on your behalf.

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.
