There are many different options out today to restructure your existing mortgage. If your home loan is currently owned by fannie mae or freddie mac, you may not have to pay down your principal at all. If it is not, then you can actually go all the way up to 97.75% of your home’s value.

I could go over all your options with you and show you the payment differences as well as your cash to close differences to allow you to make an educated decision in which option you should go with. Far too often I see people want to spend way too much of their hard earned savings they already have to save far too little on a monthly basis. For instance...if you have $20k cash today but take that cash to pay down your principal for a $100 payment difference, it will take you over 16 years to recoup the savings you paid out. This is money that could also be used in case of an emergency, can be gaining interest, etc.

Feel free to give me a call to go over all your options.

Hi. Are you flexible? Condo's can meet your price range in the area. However, a bit further south you may be able to find housing with greater square footage. Can show you some this weekend.

I would need to take a look at your credit. FHA financing is currently 640, but its possiable to raise your credit by doing a rapid rescore (free to you). This can be accomplished by paying down certain credit cards to below 30 percent of the limit, amongst other ways. Please give me a call or email.

Warm Regards,

If Letter of Foreclosure came maybe is a summon notifying you that owner's lender placed a complaint againts the mortgage. Usually, if you are notified by bank you need to answer by motion otherwise you are in default like tenant. Contact the subscriber in the letter. If the case is you have a summon them you have a case number which you can use to answer thru a motion. Like Tenant you have rights including if you have a lease. This is a case sensitive you need to act as soon as possible ... more

Hi Lazarus,

Buying a property from the builder is a good thing. You are buying a NEW HOUSE, with probably
10 year warranty. Also, pre construction homes you may get a discount on the price. Advantages its YOUR new home, and no one has lived there and left their troubles It is a clean slate. Your no closing cost is almost correct, you will need to pay taxes and insurance. Your mortgage will be slightly higher but not much as rates are in the low 4%. You have some money to buy your new furniture to go along with your new house.
When buying, your mortgage payment has to be comfortable becuase if its not then this kind purchase is not for you.

Disadvantages: After 1 year your taxes will adjust,will most likely increase.

Hello Chris,

Great question as you are doing your due diligence!

I normally take my clients to visit the condo management to get the most updated answers.
Why getting the most updated info is important?

First, if you are buying with financing - the banks will want to know the answers to same questions, which they will ask via paid condo questionnaires. If buying cash, you still want to know what each condominium in question is like, so you can budget for your expenses and have good solid info for your buying decision.

Second, it is because the numbers change every month.
F.e. the amount of delinquent properties could change, a new special assessment could come up, a new law suit could start (against the condo or on behalf of the condo both)...

After making an offer, you will also be able to get most recent year end financials for the condominium, but my clients find talking with the manager very useful.

Hope this helps,
