Get all of the current information about FHA Reverse Mortgages for Senior Citizens right here at Oregon Reverse Mortgage Info. We are striving to get the word out to Seniors about the FHA Reverse Mortgage program. Although it isn’t right for everyone, and we won’t force it on anyone, there is a large portion of the Senior population in the Eugene/Springfield Oregon that will benefit from a Reverse Mortgage. If you are having trouble paying your monthly bills and have a large equity in your home, this might be the ideal way for you to go. If you need extra money for repairs or a new car but can’t afford another payment, this might be the way to go. You won’t know until you check if this is the program for you. Call either Laurie or Fred for an appointment today at 541-342-7576. You can a...

Yesterday was Veteran’s Day and a number of people thanked me for my service and that made me feel very special. I was in the U. S. Air Force from 1966 to 1978 and spent time on Guam during operation ARC LIGHT and BULLET SHOT during my first enlistment, on temporary duty with the 4133 Bomb Wing (Provisional). The wing was flying sorties from Guam with B-52s over Vietnam. No, I wasn’t an air crew member, I flew a typewriter and a camera. I was editor of the base newspaper. I was back on Guam on permanent (well as permanent as the military gets) assignment in 1973 and helped with the processing of refugees when Saigon fell in 1975. We took in 121,000 refugees in a 10 day period as people fled from Vietnam in almost anything that would fly. The first ones came off of the commercial airline...

You read my last post about some of the problems encountered with a foreclosed property and have gotten yourself set up with a knowledgeable lender and are ready to proceed with the next step in the process. This step in purchasing a foreclosure is probably one of the most important there is in the process, especially for the first time home buyer. If you have bought a home before, you may already be familiar with the process, but if you haven't, it can be daunting. That is why step two is: Finding the right Realtor®. I am not the world’s greatest expert on Realtors®, however I know the ones that I have worked with and understand professional behavior. I know there are Realtors® that can work as the listing agent and the selling agent, but personally, I believe that a buyer should be re...

The following e-mail looks really official. As a matter of fact, the e-mail address it came from looks really official, memberservice@suneast.org. I know it looks official because I checked out SunEast Federal Credit Union on the internet and found that their website is www.suneast.org so the e-mail has to be right, right? Wrong! This is just another example of phishing or spoofing that is happening more and more on the web. These seemingly real e-mails come asking you to access your account through the link provided (this time through a telephone number) and then they have you.              Our records indicates a bank by phone password does not exist for your account.
