How can anyone trust anything that you two are rambling on about. Both of you have information on business website links that are no longer valid.

Most of the Consumers looking to purchase a home for that matter, Can never do so, because the current market is requesting that a consumer make 2 or in most cases 3 times the amount of the current requested monthly charge. So, with the current markets average request of $1495 - $1795 a month - A consumer within their jobs,

must accumulate approx. $4,485 - $5385 a month in total wages in order to even consider moving into any property under the current average market values.

I will say that you are absolutely correct in saying that those values are set to increase in just a short few months, rendering most consumers stuck living back to the recession times. Oregon politicians and the fair housing market need to get together and squash the non-sense. You would make more in returns by changing the values the market needs. Lowering housing costs, offering business a tax credit for the shelling out of personal capitol when needing to re-condition a property with visible residual damage.

And this is coming from a stay @ home dad..Who's also affected by the markets unfair sales values...

Hi Victoria,

FHA charges an Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium of 1.75% of your loan amount which is financed on top of your loan. In addition, FHA requires annual mortgage insurance which is broken down to 12 monthly installments and collected with each payment just like your taxes & insurance.

I would have to see an estimate of your closing costs from the lender to tell whether or not you're charged twice for the FHA Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium.

I would be happy to give you a second opinion.

Take a look at the recommendations from some of my past clients on my Trulia profile by clicking the link below my phone number.

Please feel free to contact me for more information or help.

Certainly! I've had clients do that before and it's a great idea. Might want to talk to a lender about this up front and make sure they are on board.

well as the deposit for the home. Should this be a major red flag or possibly just a good deal?
