Leveraging Your Money One of the greatest financial aspects of buying a home is the ability to leverage your money. Simply put, leverage allows you to use a small down payment and financing to purchase a larger investment. For example, if you bought a $125,000 home with 10 percent down, you leveraged the $12,500 down payment to purchase an asset worth 10 times that amount! Appreciation The benefits of leverage really become apparent with appreciation, or the rise in value of a property. Using the above example, say you were to live in the house for 5 years, and during that time property values in your area were to rise an average of 2.5 percent a year. Your home would then be worth over $141,000. By putting only 10 percent down, you get to enjoy the appreciation for the full amount! Pay...

15-Year, 30-Year, or a Biweekly Mortgage? In the past, the 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage was the standard choice for most homebuyers. Today, however, lenders offer a wide array of loan types in varying lengths--including 15, 20, 30 and even 40-year mortgages. Deciding what length is best for you should be based on several factors including: your purchasing power, your anticipated future income and how disciplined you want to be about paying off the mortgage. What are the benefits of a shorter loan term? Some homeowners choose fixed-rate loans that are less than 30 years in order to save money by paying less interest over the life of the loan. For example, a $100,000 loan at 8 percent interest comes with a monthly payment of around $734 (excluding taxes and homeowner's insurance). Over 30...

Saving for the Down Payment Saving funds for a down payment should be part of an overall program to get your finances in order prior to shopping for a home. This includes rounding up financial records, examining your spending habits, and setting a budget you can live with. Remember, too, that the down payment is not the only up-front expense. An allowance for closing costs should also be included in your savings budget. How much is required? The down payment is usually expressed as a percentage of the overall purchase price of the home, and varies depending on the lender, the type of financing and amount of money being lent. In the past, the typical down payment was 20%, but in recent years lenders have been willing to offer conventional financing with as little as 3% down. U.S. Governm...

Closing Costs The bundle of fees associated with the buying or selling of a home are called closing costs. Certain fees are automatically assigned to either the buyer or the seller; other costs are either negotiable or dictated by local custom. Buyer closing costs When a buyer applies for a loan, lenders are required to provide them with a good-faith estimate of their closing costs. The fees vary according to several factors, including the type of loan they applied for and the terms of the purchase agreement. Likewise, some of the closing costs, especially those associated with the loan application, are actually paid in advance. Some typical buyer closing costs include: The down payment Loan fees (points, application fee, credit report) Prepaid interest Inspection fees Appraisal Mortgag...

Can You Afford To Buy That Home In Port Charlotte Florida? Understanding how much you can afford is one of the most important rules of home buying. Depending on your individual situation, your budget can affect everything from the neighborhoods where you look, to the size of the house, and even what type of financing you choose. Bear in mind, however, that lenders will look at more than just your income to determine the size of the loan. Likewise, you may find that there are some creative financing options that can help boost your purchasing power. Loan prequalification vs. preapproval One of the best ways to determine your budget is to have your real estate agent or lender prequalify you for a loan. Prequalification is different from preapproval, because it is only an estimate of what ...

Port Charlotte named best place to retire by CNNMoney.com.  Not one of the best but #1 Best Place to Retire This accolade for Port Charlotte is an excellent boost. To add to this  our schools are getting good grades too. This little Gem is on the West Coast of Florida, 3 hours from Orlando to the North and about the same distance from Miami to the South.  Port Charlotte was created and developed in the late 1950.  It is still growing and developing and has all the earmarks of a great community.  Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda -  which had been receiving all the accolades in the past - make up Charlotte County and its legendary unspoiled beauty.  Its uncongested living makes it a destination of choice for the leisurely and unhurried. The Murdock Area of North Port Charlotte is growing dy...

A Short Sale Might Be The Best Way to Get Out of Your Home. If it looks like you might lose your home in the near future, you should contact your lender to see if they will arrange a short sale for you. The short sale is a way to avoid foreclosure if you owe more than your home is worth. The lender agrees to sell it for market value or less, and it's a really good way to prevent foreclosure. A foreclosure is a major problem for your credit, and it will make it hard for you to finance a home or a car in the future, not to mention getting an unsecured credit card. If your bank agrees to the short sale, you have a good chance of selling your home. Many people are looking at real estate right now as a good investment. They feel that the market is nearly at the bottom, so before prices star...
