It's a great way to purchase a home while your stationed at the home of the F-35b!The rates on VA loans are much better than your other mortgage options typically, and VA loans don't have any pricey month-to-month mortgage insurance charge.

It used to be that if you had  VA loans then you could take advantage of lower rates anytime they came about. No appraisal and most of the time no cost. This can still be done. You just have to go through the same bank you have your loan with. That being said I am not employed by Bank of America or Wells Fargo but because Homeowners Financial Group works with them as a mortgage bank I can still get those streamline refinances done without the appraisal. Most of the time I can give a credit to cover the costs of the refinance. This ends up to be a win for you as a homeowner since there will not be principle added to your loan that you would then pay interest on for the rest of the life of that loan. In a time when rates are this low and you could literally own a home for what could be th...

Mortgage Backed Securities markets have took a large dip this morning, continuing the downward trend that we saw late yesterday. Today's economic news brought  the PPI in at +0.2% and the Core PPI matched that number. Retail sales have seen its first decline in a few months but was very nominal and still  better than expectations. Retail Sales minus auto sales came in higher than expected which  fueled the stock market. Stock market rally plus positive inflation news will always hurt bonds and that is what we saw  today. Mortgage Rates are still looking great but keep an eye on the rest of the news coming out this week. I will be highly interested new about inflation since that can cause consumers to pull back spending. One of the first places to look when trying to cut back on monthly ...

The Mortgage Backed Securities  Markets have currently stalled.  But the good news is that Bonds did make a push higher from the morning lows and are for the time being pushed through a technical layer of resistance. This week is going to be interesting and busy week for economic news. No news for today but for the next 4 days we are stacked with Inflation, Sales, Manufacturing, and Consumer financial news that should give an outlook on how bad our economic recovery has stalled. We have seen a growing number of FED officials come out and say how disappointed they are with the recovery at this time. They had a much rosier outlook last month. This could mean a sustained period of low rates.  What does this mean for you? It means that if you have been on the fence about locking your purcha...

Now that I am an Active Rainer and I see a little more than I could before I have to say how deeply sorry I am that there is not a professional that is dedicated to your base. That base is Luke Ari force Base. I live in Surprise just a few miles from there and celebrate with my 3 year old son everytime there is a "test drive" by our home. You all work so hard on this base and to not have a professional here to be of some service back to you regarding one of the biggest investments you can make is disturbing to me. Enough so that I will be changing my profile to cover Luke. I hope that I can learn as much from you as you learn from us at ActiveRain. Please except this as mey pledge to be involved with you as a community at Luke AirForce Base from here on out.

LUKE AIR FORCE BASE REAL ESTATE ARIZONA MAKE AN OFFER ON A HOME Once you've found a house you like, you must decide how much to offer. In putting together your actual offer, consider the following seven factors: The advertised price of the house - Treat this as only a rough estimate of what the seller would like to receive, and recognize that different sellers price houses very differently. Some sellers deliberately overprice, others ask for pretty close to what they hope to get and a few (often the cleverest) underprice their houses in the hope that potential buyers will compete and overbid. What you can afford - What you can pay for a house will probably depend on how much you already have in cash and how much you can reasonably borrow in a mortgage. When figuring out the cost of the ...

I can't do it all. I can't do it all. I can't do it all. I must delegate. I must out-source. I must out-task. I must focus. I must say "NO" louder. I can't work on 5 different websites at the same time. I can't forget to eat. I must work out. I need to hire an assistant. I need to make a little more consistent money so I can hire an assistant. I don't like banks dictating my purchase contracts for short-sales. I like to working with bank REOs. I can't wait for 4 months to get paid on a closing. I can't wait for "possibility" money. I can't deal with negative people. I do like negative media and new shows. I can't stand working with agents who answer their phones with "Yea, Hello!" I can't be negative. I can't stop. I mustn't quit. This is a great time to buy real estate... right?   Sorr...

Builder contracts come in all sizes, shapes and versions.  There is little opportunity for the alteration of any of the terms of a Builder's Contract.  However, that said, it is imperative that you fully understand what you are signing.  Even if you have made several purchases of residential real estate in the past, unless you are specifically trained in the art of understanding contract language, this is not a swamp you should venture into without a seasoned real estate professional by your side to guide you through the murky maze of contract terms, phrases and conditions.Confucius Say:  "Man who starts out on journey alone and without a guide is soon lost and bewildered and he who continues on his excursion alone has a fool for a guide."Arizona is one of the few states that engage a l...
