The results of countless studies have shown that potential home buyers, and even current homeowners, have an inflated view of what is really required to qualify for a mortgage in today’s market.One such study by the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, revealed that many Millennials have not yet considered purchasing a home, simply because they don’t believe they can qualify for a mortgage.The article quoted Jessica Lautz, the National Association of Realtors’ Managing Director of Survey Research, as saying that there is a significant population that does not think they will be approved for a mortgage and doesn’t even try. The article also quoted Fannie Mae CEO Tim Mayopoulos: “I do think that there’s a sense out there in the marketplace among borrowers that cre...

If you are in a situation in which you can no longer afford your mortgage, and foreclosure is inevitable, you might want to consider a short sale.

Appleton Refinance Success Story : Kevin & Betty (Starter Home) Kevin and Betty is a young married couple that purchased a “starter” home in 2005.  The home is a small 2 bedroom home in Appleton.  When Kevin and Betty purchased the home, they were advised and encouraged by their real estate agent to purchase a small home, make payments to build equity, and then as the children get older sell that home and use the built up equity as the down payment on a larger home.  In theory this must have seemed like a common sense approach to building wealth and staying within their means.  Being a young, recently married couple with an infant child, Kevin and Betty listened to the advice of the professional real estate agent.  Shortly after purchasing the home, Kevin and Betty discovered there was ...

Appleton Refinance Success Story : Julie & Don (Self-Employed) Julie and Don have been married for over 15 years and purchased an Appleton Home in 2001.  Julie works in an executive position for a prominent company in the Fox Valley area while Don has been self employed in the service industry for over 20 years.   Much of their Appleton Mortgage Home Loan profile indicates that Julie and Don are of little risk.  Their credit profile reflects a perfect pay history on every trade line for both borrowers.  The home is located in an affluent area that has not experienced a substantial change in property values.  Julie and Don decided that after paying on the original Appleton Mortgage for almost 12 years at a higher interest rate, it was time to refinance to shorten the term of their mortga...

Appleton Mortgage Success Story : Marco (Recently Divorced) Marco is a recently divorced single father with three children that live with him in Appleton.  He mentioned that he had seen our website at wi-mortgage.com and the success stories of other Appleton homeowners motivated him to contact us.  Marco informed me at the beginning of the application process that the divorce had created a couple negative blemishes on his credit report.  Even though the divorce decree stated that his ex-wife was required to pay some of the credit cards, she did not.  Marco only found out after receiving phone calls from the credit card companies.  Unfortunately, I have seen this happen many times in my time as a licensed loan officer. Marco was awarded the home in the divorce because he needed a place t...

Keith and Mary L. purchased their home in 2008 with an FHA Mortgage Loan.They felt extremely lucky to get a home that they loved in a great neighborhood at a price that was within their budget.Keith and Mary noticed that FHA Mortgage rates had been at record low and wondered if now was the time to refinance the FHA mortgage on their home. Many people were concerned about property values.Keith and Mary were no different.They said they were using property value websites to try and research what the value of their home would likely be.They were shocked to see that the value of their home according to these sites was almost $20,000 less than what they paid for the house!Keith actually told me that there was “absolutely NO way you can get this loan for me.” Keith contacted me regardless of h...

    Mortgage rates are hot, hot hot!  But, they’ve been great for years now.  Does a two to three year span of low mortgage rates “lock out” homeowners who bought or refinanced in last thirty six months?  In today’s installment Milly lets homeowners of America know that there is another way “to kill the cat in the alley” so they can still take advantage of these rock bottom rates and save themselves a “ton of jack on their shack”. A concept that seems to only be in the mind’s of about 1/3 of homeowners today is torefinance to shorten their amortization versus the sole reason of simply lowering interest rate.  The mortgage market were in now offers homeowners not only the angle of dropping their interest rate, but also to cut years off of their current note with little or no change to t...

  The most common question we hear at the “shop” for the last two years is by far, “how much lower do you think home prices or rates will get?”.  In today’s installment Milly talks to ourmortgage clients of Wisconsin and Illinois, and Americans from edge to edge for that matter, about the virtue of “siezing the day” and taking advantage of what the market has to offer now. Homeowners of America today that are in their current mortgage have reservations aboutrefinancing because of fear they will regret that they didn’t wait for the “bottom” of theinterest rate market.  Milly illustrates that most people who wait for bottom end up getting “whiplash” because the mortgage bottom doesn’t advertise that it’s coming and once it hits, it’s already gone. There also seem to be a lot of renters i...

    In today’s video Milly gets the help of Harry and Lloyd to illustrate the seven common “trip ups” people can suffer on their credit and keep them from qualifying for a mortgage.  Milly wanted to take some time to talk about some of these because they go beyond the common, “pay your bills”, “don’t get sued”, “don’t get your credit pulled a 100 times” type of advice that is readily out there.  Today’s video provides some worth while and “out of the box” stuff to keep your eye on in regard to your credit scores and the next time you apply for credit. We hope you enjoy today’s installment! If you or any of your loved one have any questions regarding mortgage financing, home ownership or banking in general, please don’t hesitate to hit that MILLY button!!
