Positive Press Surges for Reverse Mortgages During June The recent changes to the reverse mortgage cam swiftly last September 30 and changed the landscape of the reverse mortgage program for future borrowers. One of the biggest hurdles since the changes, however, has been combating the established reputation of the reverse mortgage program as a “loan of last resort,” that should only be used if (and only if) you have no other options. Slowly, but surely, the reputation of the reverse mortgage is on the up and up and, NRMLA reports, the press results for the month of June 2014 are the most positive since August of 2013. Nationally, states the article, there were 195 positive stories last month and just 14 negative, a 13:1 ratio or 93% of a favorable result. In major market newspapers, th...

Country Club of Coral Springs Recent Sales for March 2014 The Country Club area of Coral Springs is one of the nicest communities still kept up today. With a nice Golf Course to go along with it! And the amazing thing is, all the residents in there just do it out of homeownership pride. There isn't any Home Owners Association keeping after everyone to keep the neighborhood up. Beautiful mature trees line most streets. Below are the very recent sales, as of March 2014. I am proud to say, our office sold 2630 NW 115th in 5 days and got more than list price! We have other available properties in that community if you are interested.

Never, ever take the word of the Home Owners Association when you ask if there are any assessments about to hit the community. My seller was thrown for a loop when two days before closing the association put a $1500. charge on the HUD to the buyer and called it a Capital Contribution. The buyer felt suckered-punched at the eleventh hour. And the seller was flabbergasted! The seller never got an email or a notice of any kind stating that this was in the works. The association said this was for the reserves since so many properties in the community were foreclosed. The needed to put moey back into the community to help keep the common grounds up. And they said this was a condition to the buyer to be able to purchase, not the current homeowner. But, this was never mentioned at the intervi...
