Your Debt-to-Income Ratio Is High and It Will Be Alright You might have been lured into reading this blog post under the false assumption that I'd be discussing the controversial subject of financing cannabis-related businesses and property.  Well, you can let that notion go up in smoke.  Instead, we're going to talk about the ways you can get a great jumbo mortgage in California if your debt-to-income ratio (also known as "DTI") is higher than Jeff Spicoli at 4:20pm.  OK, dude, not really, but we are going to address the ways you can get a decent home loan with a very competitive rate if your DTI exceeds 43% --- the maximum amount specified for a qualified mortgage, or "QM."  Let's get together and review a little background first. Your debt-to-income ratio is determined by dividing yo...

In good news for savvy real estate agent marketers like me, Mosaic or Tiled Photos are now allowed per MLS Listings as of the most recent meeting. This is applicable for REALTOR members of the Santa Clara County Board of REALTORS (SCCAOR) and Silicon Valley Board of REALTORS (SILVAR). For agents like me who know consumers have short attention spans it makes sense to make the first image a montage of desirable images, rather than only one feature of the home.Here is a clip from the announcement.Section 7.11.2 Listing Photograph RequirementsThe MLS Rules Committee and Board of Directors removed the photo prohibition on using overlays, mosaics, or added text. However, text only images are still forbidden.  The MLS Rules with changes are also available to read here at Section 7.11.2 Listing...

Watching the magical transformations of houses on shows such as Property Brothers and others on HGTV, it's easy to think that buying a fixer upper and doing (or contracting out) the work oneself will save one money.But guess what?According to a recent survey by www.Porch.com, a service that connects homeowners with contractors, there's a dirty little secret about fixer uppers that few talk about.While it's true that most people may spend more initially for a move-in ready house, the sad truth is people spend  more than that same amount of price difference  to fix it up. And that's not talking about the personal supervision of contractors required nor the time it takes to get the work done. Check out this article and call me at 408-252-8900 to find out whether a fixer or a flipper home m...
