It moves to quick to be up to date on a web site. Most often the REO agents know what is coming up, they are assigned the listings but then must wait for deeds to be cleared, evictions, property cleaning or appraisals. The best time to get in a home is before it is priced. Get your estimates to fix, assess what the value is before and be ready to make an offer when offers are opened up. ... more

If it is a rental .... why is the rent not covering your note?

The cheapest way to avoid foreclosure would be to catch up the mortgage before the foreclosure is finalized.

As a home buyer, I don't believe you need to worry about that. As long as you have liked the house, you must go for it. Let the Builder and the agent deal with the situation.

What do you mean by "brand new kitchen"? It's definitely not worth your time and money to change everything, but there are some key renovations that would make a big difference. Painting cabinets, refinishing countertops, and upgrading appliances are the first big-ticket items that come to mind. Those should show off your kitchen to the buyer without breaking the bank. http://waysandhow.com/how-to-refinish-corian-countertops ... more

Home Loan: Bank offering 1 year / 9 months / 6 months / 3 months mortgage rate lock with 1 time optional float down

As of Aug 5 2013

Hi,

I have purchased a home at Monroe Manor- NJ and have done quite a bit of research for getting one of the best deals on home mortgage.
I have found a bank that is providing the following rates as of Aug 5 2013. This is much better than the Wells Fargo deal that the builder has a tie up with (even considering the $1500 credit that Wells Fargo is giving)

For my house, I personally chose the 15 year fixed at 3.5% with 1 year rate lock + 1 time optional float down which is the best in the market.

5 Year ARM - 3.00%
10 year fixed - 3.375%

15 year fixed - 3.50%

20 year fixed - 4.375%
30 year fixed - 4.875%

The fees of the bank are also the best in the market:-

Total fees charged by the bank is (no other fees apply. The below is all the fees)

Application fees - $212
Appraisal fees - $325
Bank attorney fees - $275
Flood fee - $8
Credit report fee - $5

In addition the bank charges rate lock fees as follows:-
6 month rate lock - 0.5% of loan amount
9 month rate lock - 0.75%
1 year rate lock - 1%

Optional one time float down fees - $750

I compared this with several banks and found the above to be the best. If you compare this with wells fargo (who have jacked up the interest rates and have added a small $1500 initial credit) then you will find that after 1.5 years, you will start making profit with the above bank. Meaning the initial credit of Wells FArgo and its other benefits will equalize after 1.5 years. After 1.5 years you will start making loss with Wells Fargo.

Please contact me if you need more details of the above bank.

Regards
Punit Kumar

You do not have to join the Golf to live in either community. A portion of your maintenance fee is automatically applied to that because having a golf course increases your property values. If you choose not to join, you just have your monthly HOA fee. ... more
