FHA Mortgage ~ Buying a Home in McCurtain County or Choctaw County OK So you thought you could qualify for a USDA Guaranteed Mortgage with 100% financing but your income is just over the limit.  You're ot prepared to do a Conventional Mortgage with a 10% or 20% down payment plus closing costs... what's left?   An FHA Guaranteed Mortgage is what's left and maybe it should have been your first choice.  An FHA Mortgage can be a 30 year fixed rate mortgage with a very competitive interest rate.  Yes, there is a Mortgage Insurance Premium due as part of your payment due to the loan to value ratio, but interest rates are lower than local conventional interest rates; currently often over a 1% rate difference.    The FHA appraisal must be done by a certified FHA appraiser.  The appraiser may li...

No Minimum Credit Score on VA Mortgage ~ NO~ VA Does NOT Make Your Loan. I always try to be helpful..  The caller wanted some information about home that we have listed and wanted to set up an appointment to view the home.   I gave him the information about the house and asked him if he had gotten pre-qualified with a lender, to purchase a home.  No, his credit is bad and so is his wife's.  His is in the 300's and hers in the 400's. He thought that maybe his in-laws would be willing to co-sign a loan so he and his wife could buy a home.  I gave him some contact information for local lenders.   About 30 minutes later, he called back and asked if I had worked with buyers that were buying with a VA Mortgage.  Yes, many times.  Was one of his in-laws a veteran and were they going to live in...

Sometimes, a Tape Measure is My Most Important Input For a Decision. Sometimes  Buyer Clients need to measure rooms.. even if the dimensions are posted in the home information.  The Client needs to know that Great-Grandma's dining room set will fit in the Formal Dining Room and that there's plenty of  room in the master bedroom for the oversized bedroom furniture that the client owns.  Today a tape measure was important in a decision that Don and I were making.  We had found the "perfect" Dodge Ram 3500 to replace the current one that we have for towing our 5th Wheel RV.  For some reason, we just weren't quite ready to do it.  We loved the new truck but the trade-in for our low-mileage, well-cared-for truck wasn't good enough..  It's a 2005 but only has 84,000 miles on it.  On the Cummi...

It Often is the Little Things in Life that Make us Smile.  This is the time of year for the little things.. little  flowers, that is.  Pastures, lake lots, hillsides, and yards for that matter if you're not really quick to mow.   These little blue flowers are Periwinkle,  an evergreen vine that provides good ground cover, especially around the trunks of trees and other areas that would benefit from a low growing ground cover.    I'm not sure what the little pink varigated wild flowers are.. they are tiny but oh so pretty!   Idabel and McCurtain County are blooming.. not only in the groomed and tended flower beds but the hills are alive with color and beauty!

10 Things to Think On as a Seller. Home Not Selling? "Seller Stances" ♥ You need to sell your home in Idabel OK.  It's not happening even though you've cleaned, dusted, washed windows, mowed the grass and even hired a real estate agent.  A few buyers have looked at it, but no offers have been made except for that one that was half of what you're asking.  It was such a lowball offer that it didn't even justify a response from you, it only made you mad. You really need to sell your home so what do you do? There are plenty of articles and blog posts written about upgrading, painting, decluttering, staging, and lowering the price.  I want to talk about a way of thinking.  Now don't miss-take what I'm saying... a change in your way of thinking or a change in seller stance may actually lead t...

Exploring Idabel Oklahoma. Walking Path at McCurtain Memorial Hospital McCurtain Memorial Hospital had a walking path built in the fall of 2006.  Always promoting good health and preventive steps (literally), it is an inviting, well maintained, away from traffic, place to step it out.  If only that pavement had ears.  There have been many friends walk along that path during the past 9 years, visiting and discussing their lives as they walked along together in a common goal to add some steps to their day and improve their health.  I've always walked in the Brown Addition area prior to moving our office to town because that was my community.  Now that I spend some of my day each business day only about a mile from the McCurtain Memorial Garden Meadows Walking Track, I often scoot over the...

May I Put up the SOLD Sign, PLEASE? This home at 408 Moonlight Dr went into contract.  About a week before it closed, ouor seller came by and asked, "May I Put up the SOLD Sign, PLEASE?"So the SOLD sign went up a week early... because Don drove over right then with the Seller and proudly put SOLD on 408 Moonlight Dr.  Our Seller is a HVAC expert and he had been working that day but he did not hesitate to stand next to the SOLD sign for his home at 408 Moonlight, Idabel.  Brian, We appreciate you and Debbie!  They have had nothing but good things to say and keep telling me to send them some links so they can write referrals for our office.  I just may have to do that today.  Closing has taken place now and it really is SOLD!
