What is in it for me, the Realtor? I find it interesting and a bit dismaying when I am asked to join a loan officer for a 203k talk. What gets me is they typically start off with the first ten to twenty minute of how many they have done and how important they are to the process. I may be missing something but I think it is more important to talk about what is in it for me, the Realtor. That is really what they want to know, right?I created a powerpoint presentation a few years ago and you can see it for FREE by sending an email to mike@my203kconsultant.com and in the subject line put "What is in it for me?"  I'll send you the power point and you can watch it at your liesure. You will learn1) How to beat "all cash buyers, every time"2) How to increase your housing inventory.3) How to imp...

are the FHA 203k loans as strong as they ever were?What can we say about that? Yes, and No is the right answer. Why is that? Originally the 203k was intended for borrower's that were credit challenged. That is no longer the case, many and I do mean many, borrowers these days just want to have some work done asap after they own the property.What are the options then if not the FHA 203k, how about the Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation Mortgage is the most common alternative to the 203k but it only covers to the FHA loan limits or the Fannie Mae limits. What happens when you have a home where the list price is greater than those limits? There are a number of alternatives but the most popular is portfolio lenders who lend to their banking clients up to $3,000,000 and that includes purchase o...

What happens when an FHA 203k loan goes sideways?We hear all kinds of stories and everyone wants to lay blame on someone else when these loans go side ways and go sideways some to.1) One our our associates in NJ called me and his client called him to say they were ready for a draw inspection, they had about $30,000 ready to draw. He gets there and finds that not one thing on his scope of work was completed.  Not one thing. Wow, I asked how much did you pay for the things that were completed... his answer was "nothing" and he was exactly correct.YOU must do what is on the scope of work. That is what the appraiser expects to see when they go out to complete their final inspection. 2) Same inspector in NJ called a week later with the same issue, another client did the same thing. The contr...

A forced air unit on a 203k I was working on was gutted. They took the blower, motor and circuit board. What can my client do? I'm afraid this is an insurance matter for the contractor. The contractor should have "work in progress" insurance to cover this. The home owner's policy might also cover the theft but that is what it is. You, as the consultant don't have anything to do with this issue.

Who can actually close a renovation loan fast in Los Angeles County? There are lots of lenders who profess to be able to close a renovation loan quickly and then there are those who actually do close them quickly. But remember it isn't all on their shoulders, your client or the client must take an active role in getting their financial data to the lender promptly. The clock starts ticking once that info reaches the lender.  It isn't all about the FHA 203k it is about "renovation lending" and includes the Fannie Mae HomeStyle® Renovation loan.  It is all about the team you put together when it comes to closing loans fast or faster than the competition. What is the average number of days that you close a renovation loan would be a fair question for your loan officer. The team that consist...

Borrowers are doing their homework much more than ever with their expertise in computers searches and so forth but there are many aspects of the FHA 203k program that some think they can save a penny but doing it themselves then bringing in the consultant at the last minute to wrap things up. I don't recommend this for anyone. There is a reason for the consultant and it is so important that you KNOW the program before you start making decisions that can bite you. Example 1: You read the guideline on mixed use buildings and understand that there is a maximum of 4 units. You thing this could be one commercial unit and three residential units. That is what you read but you just didn't read far or long enough. It is a maximum of 4 residential units and commercial is relegated to the first l...

As you likely already know the FHA 203k is one of the renovaiton loan products that allows for money to purchase or renovate a 1-4 unit building and get that money to make those repairs all in one low interest loan.Just spent last week in Los Angleles, Steven Laszlo, one of our teammates that covers the Los Angeles Bason or Greater Los Angeles Area. If you aren't aware of it in the "City of Los Angeles" not the county, there is an assistance program that could provide up to $30,000 for qualified home buyers. If you think you might be qualified get hold of Jeff Clark at Wells Fargo as he has a handle on this one. There was so much interest in FHA 203k loans in Los Angeles that it seemed to me to be a wide open market. Yes, I'm aware there are a number of consultants working the area but ...

203k checklist for improvements203k Consultant's cornerIt is always interesting to see how new consultants, and some not so new, will ask on a public forum if anyone has a "checklist" they might use to help them Why, you wonder?When you take your training as a consultant, you also have to certify that you have read and understand the guidelinew... the checklist is one that is part of that reading, that certification, so how is it they don't know where it is... lol.I know and understand how things can get missed when you are reading fast and rushing to complete and assignment but really...

We have been providing 203k consultations since 1994 throughout Northern CA and in 1995 trained a large group of consultants in the Los Angeles CA area. There were 33 in that class. At the end of the class I got everyone's attention with "only 10% of you will actually take this knowledge and move forward with it and actually become a 203k consultant". Three people came up to me at that meeting and said "I'm part of the 10%". They all became consultants and to this day I have them among a group I call my close friends. I'm very proud of the relationships we have made in that area and the on going communications we have with these consultants. I typically talk to them about once each month or two and have since 1995.  The other day I received a call from a lender who was in a  bind to get...

Did you ever have the' hungry horrors'? Did you ever have the ‘hungry horrors'? IF you did, then you can relate to my experience.  This past Saturday, we were driving back from Palmdale, CA. As you might know there is a number of animal safe havens, hence the visit to Palmdale, CA) at the same time I was checking out the number of for sale signs. It seemed there was less for sale signs, than a few months ago. Sadly there were more for sale signs than Joshua Trees. Anyway, I was starving so on the way back to Marina Del Rey, CA.  I saw this really great Water Tower with a McDonald's Logo. Had to pull off the 14 highway and satisfy my hunger as well as my curiosity of this place. After my large fries and chicken sandwich and the viewing of this Western Style McDonalds, we were back on the...

 The standard mortgage application used in california and most other states is known as the Uniform Residential Loan Application. We call it the 1003 for short due to that being the acutal form number. For any loan to be underwritten or approved this must be provided. In the closing documents a client signs these forms as verification that the terms of the loan and the closing costs are agreed upon. There are four total pages on this report but they are divded into 10 indivdual sections.  Section (1) --- Type of Mortgage and Terms of Loan --- This part explains the type of mortage applied for along with the note rate, loan amount and term. Section (2) --- Property Information and Purpose of Loan------ THis explains if the property is a SFR , R-2. R-3. R-4 along with the address and the ...
