No mortgage insurance for you!No MI with just 10% down on your next mortgage is available now for well-qualified homebuyers.  The Richard Woodward Team is here to make mortgages easier – and less expensive.  Get the best program custom-designed for your needs, low rates and cost.What Is Mortgage Insurance And How Does It Work?Mortgage insurance or MI, reduces the risk for a lender to take out a loan, so you can apply for a loan that you would not otherwise be able to get. Typically, borrowers who make a down payment of less than 20% of the purchase price of the home will have to pay for mortgage insurance. Mortgage insurance is usually also required for FHA and USDA loans. Mortgage insurance reduces the risk for a lender so you can put down as little as 3%.  Check out our first-time hom...

Introducing our Mortgage Rate Lock & Shop Program.Traditionally, home buyers are unable to lock in an interest rate until they have found a home and executed a purchase contract. Most mortgage lenders will not allow you to lock in the interest rate until they receive an executed purchase contract. That’s normally okay in a declining interest rate market but when interest rates are going up, that could cause some problems.I’m proud to introduce our Lock and Shop mortgage rate program. The lock and shop program allows homebuyers to lock in the interest rate once they have completed a full application and provided all the documentation necessary to seek full approval. Once this has happened we will issue a full conditional approval subject to an acceptable appraisal, title report, and surv...

In a previous blog, I mentioned that as a Real Estate Professional, you file Schedule C, the Tax Form that is the form most audited by the IRS.  The IRS has found that Schedule C’s contain a large number of errors compared to other forms and finds that they are very successful with audit changes to the returns, and able to recover a higher amount of additional taxes to the taxpayer that is audited. If you are one of those unlucky individuals that get an audit invitation in the mail, what do you need to do to make sure that you have documented your return properly?  We’ve already discussed that you don’t want to represent yourself unless you’re an attorney or experienced in handling audits.  In addition, you need to have an effective bookkeeping system and have your records organized in ...

Refinance rates drop as Fannie Mae removes adverse market fee.Refinance rates drop as #fanniemae and #freddiemac drop the adverse marketing fee.  This will enable more of the 12 million homeowners that have not already refinanced take advantage of these new lower rates.Tumbling mortgage rates just went even lower following news that an unpopular fee on refinances is coming to an end.A surcharge of one-half percent, meant to offset pandemic related losses for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, created a stir when it was implemented last summer; but now homeowners can breathe easy since the charge will be eliminated.Now that lenders don’t have to pay an Adverse Market Refinance Fee, they can pass on the cost savings to borrowers. The Enterprises (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac) got rid of this fee e...
