An update on HVCC - Home Valuation Code of Conduct. Today is a big day for the real estate industry. Here's why... Today the National Association of Mortgage Brokers will be delivering 117,000 signed petitions from mortgage brokers all over the country to Attorney General Cuomo's Manhattan office. The petitions seek the killing of HVCC. The new regulation, which was put in place by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac along with New York State Attorney General, Andrew Cuomo, is not only driving appraisers out of business but also killing real estate sales transactions throughout the country which doesn't really help the housing recovery. Inexperienced appraisers are performing appraisal inspections on markets they're not necessarily familiar with and driving prices even lower. The National Assoc...

When getting ready to buy your first home, a down payment can get in the way of making things happen. One of the great features of a FHA loan is being able to have a family member or a close relative gift you the FULL 3.5% down payment required by the program. But to make sure your transaction goes smooth and there are no "surprises", it's very important to understand how gifted down payment works. First, make sure the person who will be gifting you the money is a family member or a close relative. Gifts from non-family members are generally not acceptable unless your can document a close past relationship. In other words, you friends or co-workers may not work. Second, the bank will require proof of "ability to gift" meaning, whoever is gifting you the down payment will need to provide...

As a Roseville mortgage broker, I get this question a lot from home buyers, especially ones who have applied for mortgages in the past.  I coach buyers (new and experienced) that the current lending environment and process is much different today.  Lenders/investors are requiring much more information from borrowers than in times past.  This is very frustrating to many buyers. It doesn't make sense, especially to the ones that tell me they pay all their bills on time.   Pay stubs, two months of bank statements with all of the pages (even if they’re blank?), Federal taxes, divorce papers, copies of Driver’s and Social…the list seems endless.   It’s important to understand the lender’s perspective when you are applying for a mortgage: they don’t know you and you are asking them to give yo...

A short sale is a process in which the mortgage holder agrees to accept less than the balance owed on the mortgage at sale to prevent foreclosure. The lender would much rather see you sell the property than be forced to take the property through foreclosure, as foreclosure is a costly and time-consuming process.Generally speaking, a short sale occurs when a homeowner who is behind on his or her mortgage payments, and who owes more on his home than it is currently worth, contacts the mortgage lender asking the lender to allow him to sell the home for less than the balance of the mortgage. For example, if you owe $100,000 on your mortgage, but are only able to sell your home for $80,000, you would need to have your mortgage lender agree ahead of time to allow the sale to proceed. In fact,...

Last week Mortgage Bonds finished at levels not seen since May 21 and home loan rates hit near historic lows. It’s hard to believe that some borrowers locked their interest rates under 5% on 30 year fixed rate mortgages. Stocks closed lower and the Dow market had its worse week since mid-June. As a result, money flowed to Bonds which helped home loan rates to stay low. With weaker than expected Job Report for September and the unemployment rate of 9.8%, the Labor Department wasn’t showing much love for US workers. We also saw a decline in the Average Workweek and Average Hourly Earning. Both reports show the weakness in the labor market. Personal Spending indicated that spending rose in August – the fastest monthly pace in almost 8 years. It sound like great news but we need to take int...

Anybody out there frustrated with the time it takes to get a response from the bank on Short Sales?  I know, silly question.  Today after umpteen minutes waiting on HOLD with the bank, my own phone told me it had put me on hold.  What the!!!  Grr was my first thought but my mood changed when I called again and after only 10 minutes (what have we come to when 10 minutes on hold seems short) of waiting on the second call a man answered and identified himself by name.  "Wow," I said, "You're just the person I need to speak to."  He was a little apprehensive with that opening... but asked how he could help.  I explained I had sent an offer in 2 months earlier and it seemed that nothing was happening.  He asked me to wait on hold for a while longer and returned to say that everything he need...

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, or if you read my blog post about the little fly fishing trip I just took, you will know that last week I closed a short sale that posed some insane challenges...who knew a clerical error from the 2nd lender could cause such stress!!In the middle of April, I listed a short sale in Roseville...within a week or so, I had a few offers. Cool beans. I immediately submitted the offers to both the first lender (CitiMortgage) and second lender (Bank of America, formerly Countrywide), along with all of the other necessary paperwork. Within just a couple weeks of submitted all of the documents, I had written short sale acceptance from the first lender. YAY!I continued to call the second lender, and followed up several times per week. I provided additional ...

I've been getting a lot of people asking about the first time home buyer tax credit offered.  Here is some valuable information about it: $8,000 first time home buyer tax credit As part of its plan to stimulate the U.S. housing market and address the economic challenges facing our nation, Congress has passed legislation that grants a tax credit of up to $8,000 to first-time home buyers. Here is more information about how the 2009 First-Time Home Buyer Tax Credit can help prospective home buyers become part of the American dream. Who Qualifies? First-time home buyers who purchase homes between January 1, 2009 and December 1, 2009. To qualify as a "first-time home buyer" the purchaser or his/her spouse may not have owned a residence during the three years prior to the purchase. Which Prop...

  Finding inexpensive and tasty in the same sentence is sometimes hard. Utopia grill in Roseville seems to have done that very same thing. Yesterday my family and I went there for dinner mainly because of the $10 off coupon. The catch was after 2pm and we had to spend a minimum of $25.  We ordered a large margarita pizza a burger and a bucket of 4 imported beers after my coupon was turned in my grand total was $17 that is it. The great thing about this place is that it offers all organic and fresh food. The service was great and the restaurant was very clean. The atmosphere was extremely pleasant and allowed for a very enjoyable dinner.    Utopia grill is located at 1465 Eureka Rd (916) 788-1122 From a value stand point I give it 5 out of 5 stars and 4 out of 5 for taste and service TRY...

Hello Everyone, So I was sitting here this morning in ROSEVILLE, CA enjoying a fresh cup of coffee and thinking about the AMAZING week I just had with a particular SHORT SALE deal and thought I should share. As most of you are aware doing SHORT SALES are very time consuming and require someone with the patience and skills of a saint.  Well first of all I LOVE SHORT SALES!!!  I love to list them, and even more to my liking is to NEGOTIATE them!!.  So back to the reason for this blog :), I had listed, gotten an offer accepted by the seller and sent in a complete package to the banks (Wachovia 1st & WAMU 2nd).  Within 2 weeks of sending in the package  I get a phone call from the Wachovia negotiator; I was excited to hear from them so quickly yet worried when the Wachovia negotiator said t...

If you have been pondering whether to become a Roseville home buyer this year or to gamble on just how far the housing prices may fall, keep in mind the tax incentive being offered to first time home buyers in 2009. Remember that first time home buyer means you haven't owned a home in the past 3 years, this doesn't have to be your actual first time purchasing a home. It does mean you have not been in any ownership of a property in 3 years though. This $8000 tax credit runs out on November 30th 2009, so hurry! If you would like to read up on details, here are some great sources: federalhousingtaxcredit money.cnn.com CNNMoney.com Video

I have been showing a lot of REO properties lately in Roseville CA, and have noticed a new problem crop up with pre-approval qualification. Nearly every REO that I encounter that is owned by one of the big Banks (i.e. B of A, Wells, Chase, etc) is requiring an approval by them specifically in order to review an offer. At first regard, this may not seem like much of an issue. But in the competitive market of purchasing REOs and short sales in California, and especially in my local areas of Roseville CA and Lincoln CA (which were hit hard by the market drop) and the greater Sacramento Valley, buyers are commonly having to make many offers until they enter escrow as houses are selling above asking price due to lowered values and decreased inventory. So each time a buyer is making an offer,...
