The Internet is a great resource—one that has helped reinvent many processes, and made our personal and financial lives easier and less stressful. Getting a home loan is one area where this is especially true. Through working with an online lender rather than a lender at a brick and mortar location, getting a mortgage today can be significantly more convenient than in years past. Using the Internet and online communications to get a loan means you can apply, qualify and be approved for a mortgage, all from the convenience of your own home or office. You don’t need to take time off from work or travel to a bank for time-consuming appointments. Instead you can work with an online lender from your home on your schedule. What’s an online lender? An online lender is a mortgage company that c...

Rents are rising across the nation, but that isn’t stopping more and more people from making the choice to rent rather than own. Sure, many feel burned by the housing crisis, but what are people who choose to rent giving up? Here’s a list of all the people who take a cut of the money you spend on rent. Landlord This one’s obvious. Your landlord owns the roof over your head. The simple math is: your check goes into your landlord’s pocket and your landlord puts that money toward equity and improvements on the property. He or she has the right to sell, lease or transfer that property as long as it’s in accordance with your lease. You don’t have to pay to maintain the building—hooray!—but you also take nothing with you when you move on to the next place. Rental Agency As the middlemen betwe...

This Week The Median list price in Queen Creek and San Tan Valley AZ this week is $209,631.  The 1090 properties have been on the market for an average of 112 days.  The Market Action index (MAI) has been trending down lately, while days-on-market is climbing, providing mostly bearish signs for the market. Supply and Demand The market has started cooling and prices have recently plateaued.  Since we're in the Seller's zone, watch for changes in MAI.  If the Mai resumes it's climb, prices will likely follow suit.  If the MAI drops consistently or falls onto the Buyer's zone, watch for downward pressure on prices.

Securing a mortgage is a big step—exciting and rewarding, but possibly daunting for first-time home buyers. It involves repaying a lot of money over a long period of time. Many consumers are wary about participating in the lending process after the real estate crash of 2008. However, unless you are one of the very few people who can buy a property outright with cash, you’re going to need a mortgage. Let’s look at some ways to get secure lending from a trustworthy source. Mortgage Lenders vs. Mortgage Brokers There is a difference between mortgage lenders and brokers. Mortgage lenders secure funds using their own money from traditional sources, while mortgage brokers provide loans with funds from other sources.

If you’re ready to enter the exciting new frontier of home ownership, one of your first steps will be to save up for a down payment that’s right for your budget and desired home. Even before scouting neighborhoods or finding a lender, starting a savings plan will put you in a much better position to buy your dream home. The general wisdom goes that new homeowners should save 5-20% of a home’s total sale price to put down for an initial payment. One thing to note is that if your down payment is less than 20%, you will be subject to private or public mortgage insurance payments. However, a 20% down payment simply isn’t affordable for some families. Get acquainted with a realistic number for you by visiting a mortgage calculator and plugging in your own current income stats.  Also, if you ...

The first stop on your Google search was probably Wikipedia’s very technical definition of escrow: a. An arrangement made under contractual provisions between transacting parties, whereby an independent trusted third party receives and disburses money or documents for the transacting parties, with the timing of such disbursement by the third party dependent on the fulfillment of contractually agreed conditions by the transacting parties, or b. An account established by a broker, under the provisions of license law, for the purpose of holding funds on behalf of the broker’s principal or some other person until the consummation or termination of a transaction; or, c. A trust account held in the borrower’s name to pay obligations such as property taxes and insurance premiums. In English Di...
