Would be home buyers in Stilwell, Gardner and Spring Hill Kansas were dealt a blow a couple of months ago when it was announced that the USDA Rural Development Loan program was out of money. The USDA loans were one of the few remaining zero down payment options for Johnson County Kansas home buyers.  Well worry no more, Congress has acted and made an emergency funding to the program. The USDA Rural Development loan program will once again provide 100% financing for home inside the development zones located in Stilwell, Gardner and Spring Hill.

In today's financial climate first time homebuyer's are really stuck having to come up with a down payment to purchase a home or get a sizable gift from a relative that is loosing money in their own portfolio. I have had many requests for more information from the Kansas City Area Realtors that need this type of program to get starving potential homeowners into a mortgage.  This will help boost sales and provide a home loan that will benefit a person over the long term.  No adjustable rate, No PMI. This post is for consumers/homebuyers, Real Estate Professionals and Mortgage Professionals that may not have a good working knowledge of the features and benefits of the US Department of Agriculture's  Guaranteed Rural Housing program. In the last 14 years I have one of a very few lenders cl...

I cannot tell you how many Realtors I have spoken to in the Kansas City Area that just cannot seem to get a buyer or potential buyer interesting in purchasing a home.  The main reason seems to be the money down and the uncertainty of money.  I spoke to one Realtor today that said she was sure that you could not get a mortgage without at least 20% down. Nothing could be further from the truth.  I have 1 conventional loan program for 100% but 2 government programs for no money down and flexible credit guidelines.  My favorite is the USDA Guaranteed program.  This program has ZERO money out of pocket at a great rate ~6.5% with No PMI.  Sure you have to be in an eligible area but First Time Homeowners don't really care if you are less than 10 minutes out of town.  For more information reply...

How important should a view be when buying a home? I know when I was looking for a home, one of my top 5 things that I wanted was a view of the sunsets. The others were... a fireplace, a basement without crumbly limestone rocks, large closets, and a large family room for entertaining. I didn't end up getting my view, but I got all the others and a pretty great house. Sometimes, you just have to compromise. This home not only has a great view of sunsets, but of firework displays, football games, and city lights.

I am just curious as to if anyone has any thoughts, opinions, or educated guesses, as to when the housing market is going to rebound?  I've heard six months, I've heard any time now, I've even heard one or two people say that they think that it will be over a year.  What do you think?

I was just wondering if anyone new if installing energy efficent windows was a cost effective way to build equity in your home.  Will they raise the value of my house enough to make it worth while if I am planning to sell when the market is better, or does the savings come in the utilities? Also here is a link for a blog that my dad wrote, he is trying to gather tips/idea's for putting together a web page that helps renters to become buyers.  Thanks for any input you can give.  Here is the Link:http://activerain.com/blogsview/20689/Hey-AR-community-let
