  BUYERS: BE THERE FOR YOUR HOME INSPECTION!!!       Before I became a licensed Realtor in Oregon, I lived in California, and purchased a home in Klamath Falls, Oregon.  I trusted my "well-known" agent to recommend a good inspector. I can't even tell you how many costly items were covered up in that inspection. "Moving boxes" were stacked in the basement to "cover up" a big water leak, coming down from the kitchen. The heating system was never inspected and it sounded like a "jack hammer" when I moved in. Windows were painted shut, curtains covered broken glass panes, sewer line needed replacement, promised repairs were not completed, etc., etc. This was a very poor inspector and a very unethical Realtor, and sorry to say, they are both still conducting business in Klamath Falls, as of...

  What kind of home can I buy with a  Reverse Mortgage?That is a great question and for the answer we will need to look to the FHA Guidelines regarding suitable property.  Any home that qualifies for forward (traditional) FHA loans will be acceptable for FHA Reverse Mortgage financing.The following eligible property types must meet all FHA property standards and flood requirements: Single Family Homes (1 to 4 Unit)FHA Approved CondominiumsManufactured Homes that meet FHA Standards (permanent foundation on owned land) However not all homes in any of the categories above may qualify.  You will want to work with an experienced reverse mortgage consultant who is familiar with the HECM For Purchase.  Individual lenders may also have thier own stricter guidelines called “overlays”.

SRES Realtors - The HECM “Reverse For Purchase” Can Help Your Clients to Buy Their Dream Retirement Home. HECM stands for Home Equity Conversion Mortgage and FHA defines “HECM for Purchase” as a “R.E. purchase where title to the property is transferred to the senior buyer, which the buyer will occupy as a principal residence, and, at the time of closing, the HECM first and second liens will be the only liens against the property.” Quite a statement! Here are a few reasons to consider an FHA Reverse (HECM) Mortgage for purchase:   Easier Qualifying – Your clients will not have to “qualify” for monthly mortgage payments on the new purchase transaction. A significant detail to senior buyers on a fixed income. * Certain transactions will require some “qualification” – they must qualify for ...

Southern Oregon Reverse Mortgage Question - Can I get a reverse mortgage if my property is in a trust?   Most of the time the answer is yes. The trust must be revocable and all beneficiaries of the trust must be eligible borrowers. The trustee must have the power to encumber real property (get a loan on real estate).  You will need to provide your lender with a complete copy of the signed, notarized Declaration of Trust, all amendments and Exhibit’s.  The trust will have to be reviewed by the title company and lender to be sure that the proper language is there. Here’s what FHA has to say: "All beneficiaries of the trust must be eligible HECM borrowers at the time of origination and until the mortgage is released [i.e. borrower/beneficiary must occupy the property as a principal reside...

Reverse Mortgage Question from Klamath Falls - "Sharon, what is MIP?"MIP is an acronym for Mortgage Insurance Premium. It is the cost of the insurance policy that is purchased at the time of funding an FHA (another acronym) loan.  MIP is charged in both forward and reverse FHA loans.  Purpose of MIP Traditionally this insurance protects the lender against a loss on the loan if the home is foreclosed on and unable to sell for the balance owed.  It is all of that and has an additional function in the reverse space.   That function is in the event the lender is unable to fulfill it’s obligations to the borrower, FHA can and will step in to fulfill them. For example, if the bank is unable to make the monthly payment to the senior because a natural disaster shut down their servicing center ...

  Hello Klamath County! Let’s get started right off the bat with the basics about this often misunderstood “senior loan”. FHA calls their reverse mortgage loan program the HECM -  an acronym for “Home Equity Conversion Mortgage”.  When you hear people talking about a “heck-um” they are talking about a reverse mortgage.  This government insured program enables senior homeowners over the age of 62 to withdraw some of the equity in their home. The HECM is a safe plan that can give older Americans greater financial security. Many seniors use it to supplement social security, meet unexpected medical expenses, make home improvements and more. You can receive additional free information about reverse mortgages in general by contacting the National Council on Aging at (800) 510-0301 or download...

I know there has been some sleepless nights amongst our local farmers about whether or not they will be able to irrigate the fields this growing season.   The chat around the town has been unmistakable.   Overheard at Fred Meyer a few days ago "There was 5 inches of snow in Chiloquin and 12 inches on Deer Mountain."   Very common conversations. Some feel the decision has already been made and the recent return of winter is too little, too late. Here is a small testament to the crazy spring.  Yes, the sun is beaming and yes, that is hail on the ground amongst the flowers.   Hopefully there will be plenty of things growing in the Basin this summer!
