  With 2009 fast approaching, so are some key and important changes in regards to FHA loans. One important thing to remember is that FHA has made these changes official in their mortgagee letters, but that doesn't mean that investors or mortgage companies have to follow them. I will explain later....     What are the new changes?   Down Payment :  The new down payment for FHA loans will be 3.5% down and not 2.25% down. Now, this is a tad confusing, because prior to next year, 2009, it was that the borrower needed 3% of their own monies. In which part of that went to their down payment. And not all the states were the same with the current down payment, but it was the same in each and every state that the borrower needed 3% of their own monies. The new change?  It will be 3.5% across the...

I am sure many of you have seen wife swapping on ABC TV. Now there is house swapping, a newer trend that actually started back in the early 1950's. Throughout the years, this was more common with second homes, almost like swapping time shares. Now, with much of the real estate market in a flux of little turner over, more companies are starting to capitalize on this new trend. Have you seen this in your area?  Heard about it? What's behind house swapping and what should you know about it?  One main reason is that this can be done without a realtor and their commissions. Should realtors look into these services now offered? Another reason might be because they don't have much equity in their home to pay both for a commission and sometimes the time to sell their home. How about moving dow...

The Fair Lawn street fair takes place on Sunday October 21, 2007 along River Road from 11am - 5pm. This is a great time to walk around town. You can catch up with old friends and make some new ones. One of the many events that brings Fair Lawn residents together.

Fair Lawn Borough is located in Bergen County, New Jersey in the northeast corner of the State. As of the 2000 census, Fair Lawn had a population of 31,637 residents. Its history can be traced back to the Lenni-Lenapi tribes, and was incorporated as a Borough in 1924. Fair Lawn is a great place to visit with such historical sites as the Native American fishing weir, Garreston Forge and Farm Restoration, Radburn: the first planned community and the old Dutch House Tavern.  There are three shopping districts along Broadway, River Road and Fair Lawn Avenue and two train stations serviced by New Jersey Transit into New York City and points north. Fair Lawn is a better place to live with over a dozen recreational facilities and parks serviced by one of the best recreation departments in New ...
