During the summer of 2015, my girlfriend Amanda and I started the house hunt for our first home. We found the house of our dreams after a couple of months and submitted our best offer. We submitted all information the bank needed only to find out (1 week before closing) that my status in the USA ( a TN visa ) is not accepted by the underwriter. Everything fell apart. I had searched the internet endlessly to find a solution that might save our deal. I found David Krichmar that wrote about Canadians being approved for home loans in Texas. We gave him a call and we chatted about my situation and at the time he knew how to fix my situation but could not be my lender due to being in a different state. The deal fell apart, we had a lot of unpacking to do.   Fast forward to January of this 201...

MI Association of Realtors believes like you do.  Appraisers should join us.  MAR purchased an appraisal management company called Midwest.  The goal is that the lender in MI choose Realtor Appraisers that belong to Midwest.  When Midwest puts an appraiser on an assignment, the appraiser must belong to the "local MLS" of that area. The role out was presented at Achieve and there were many appraisers in the room with questions.  Some are speaking against this, they are the people not in attendance while the program was rolled out and explained. For more information please see:  http://www.mirealtors.com/content/micreamonthly_121610.htm Yes, this is endorsed by NAR.

Why do I need a home inspection if I'm having an appraisal? Won't the appraiser verify the home's conditon? What's the difference? Who will verify the value? Who will make sure the components to the home are in working condition? This short video should answer those questions and more...

The US Department of Treasury, under the Making Home Afforable program has outlined a standardized process for short sales and will incentivize both the loan servicer and the borrower.  This really takes the short sale program from the dark alleys to the front window. Foreclosure Alternatives for Borrowers Eligilbe for MHA outlines the process and includes "borrower incentives to cover relocation expenses to homes that are affordable" as well as " incentives for servicers to pursue alternatives to foreclosures". The long term tax issues were wiped out last year and these new developments make much more sense than foreclosure, and can eliminate "strategic foreclosure" in many instances saving taxpayers and homeowners millions by selling these homes as opposed to them sitting vacant.

Al Serra Hummer has out sold every other Hummer Dealership in the United States for the 3rd year in a row!  They sold approximately 900 Hummers.  http://hummer.alserra.com/             With all the gloom and doom on the news, I hope this gives Genesee County a reality check.  Try to eat at Logan's, Out Back Steak House, Olive Garden, ect on Friday or Saturday night with out having to wait 45 minutes to an hour.  Record home sales are happening in Genesee County.  Last year we had our 3rd largest transaction year, we are way ahead of the year to date sales this year already.  The prices are down, we have to sell to level the prices out and create a demand.             My husband and I were attempting to find our kids a used camper for the summer.  That was nearly impossible.  The used tr...

First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit as Down Payment or: Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap  I think this is an important discussion to have so I am going to post this blog a few days in a row to make sure it gets out. There is a lot of confusion concerning the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit especially now that FHA has approved the funds to be used towards down payment and I am looking to simplify things for you like I have been trying to do with all of my blogs.  This one, I feel is of great importance because I hate to be the one to you know: burst the bubble, but as I hear folks industry wide rejoice at the possibilities of borrowers being able to use their tax credit as a down payment for their new home I would like at least make a few points to the contrary.  1. Premature Jubilation: Everyo...

So, regardless all of the jibber-jabber out of Washington lending is continuing to tighten. I figured I would write just a general overview of some of the significant changes or non-changes here in my blog in case any of these issues may affect you.  First Time Home Buyers: Most of the news for you is good. So much is aimed at finding you and inspiring you to help get the economy moving again, that your business is still in demand. The current change is that banks are looking for a little more investment on your part to ensure that they are making a good investment with you. This doesn't necessarily mean a down payment, but do expect to be accountable for past credit discretions and to able to show paperwork on where you are getting the money to pay for your appraisal, down payment, or ...

I will be adding to this list as I go along, but I wanted to start a nice comprehensive FAQ for homebuyers. I put "first time" in parenthesis because really this can apply to anyone buying a home, but this will apply mainly to the questions I get from first time homebuyers.  Q: Why buy instead of rent? A: Well, pride of ownership and having something that is yours to do with what you want. A home is also a long-term investment for your future. Don't let all of the exploding market talk scare you. Real Estate prices go up and down, but just like investing in stocks, you buy low and sell high based on when you enter the market. If you put yourself in a position where you have to sell within a very short period of time you had better make a sound investment or you will fail as many are now...

You've probably met me face to face and don't even realize it. If not, you've certainly seen my cards pass through your office in the last six years. I'm the guy that was in your office with a smile, a free pen, and a Rural Development (RD) loan flyer. I'm here again to tell you why you need to find yourself a great RD loan officer to refer client to.  RD eliminates the most common deal killer. "Cash to close" kills more deals than anything, I am certain of that. Whether it kills deals in process or stops potential buyers from proceeding, the money a buyer has to bring to the closing table is the biggest obstacle in Michigan. RD eliminates this by allowing your borrowers to finance closing costs even above normal LTV guidelines. We don't need concessions to achieve stress-free financing...
