  Mascia opens up about "the family business"   Author Jennifer Mascia has finally spilled the beans.    In her newly released book, "Never Tell our Business to Strangers," she discloses what it was like to grow up in a family on the lam.  It was a confusing lifestyle where her father would answer to one name at home but a different one in public.  And one where the family would experience wild swings in wealth, shopping for Chanel and Louis Vuitton at posh shopping centers in Los Angeles one day, then living in a single room and subsisting on food stamps the next. It wasn't until she stumbled upon a newspaper article about New York State criminals that Mascia began to piece the odd elements of her life together and come to understand why they lived a nomadic lifestyle, crisscrossing th...

Now more than ever, rates are not "one size fits all".  FICO score, debt to income ratio, & Loan to Value % - as well as property type ( SFR vs CONDO / 2- Unit / INVESTMENT )are crucial in determining what a borrower will qualify for.  Did you know that in 2008, Fannie & Freddie imposed extra fees (Risk based pricing)to a large percentage of new mortgage loans?  These fees are called " loan level price adjustments"  They are based on layers of risk added to a loan, due to lower credit scores, & higher loan to values, as well as loan purpose, & property type.  These fees have been increased a couple of times, causing more borrowers to fall into the surcharge zone. These fees are mandated by Fannie & Freddie, and are required of ALL lenders originating a loan to be sold to these agencies....

After leaving work toninght about 6:30 my family and I decided to go out for a quick bite. As the sun was setting the sky was a beautiful orange and glistened through the the gorgeous trees that line Princeton Ave. As we passed through the  Rt 88 & 70 intersection we looked to the east, this is what we saw. What a beautiful site tonight in Brick Township.   Here is story I told my son for the first time when he was about 4 years old. Now 11 going on twelve he still remembers it. I tought I would share it will you. Long ago, at the beginning of time, the colors of the world quarreled.

  What are probably the two most important things in regards to a mortagage settlement?  Having that loan close and close on time??   Sure, a good deal would be the no brainer. And no, not the best deal. Here is my definition of a very good deal. It's not based solely on interest rates and fees. It would be a combination of : good rate and low to no lenders fees (anything under $500) an on time settlement with no hitches (last minute change of rate and or fees) educating the consumer of the process - good explanations along the way timely follow up communication Those are just to name a few things to how you can judge if you got a good deal or not. But what about my initial question?  What do you think would be the two biggest issues for a smooth transaction?       My .02 to the questio...

  2008 has been an eventful year for the world economy. The U.S. financial markets have been severely marked by these events, but as far as the Mexican Caribbean is concerned, these negative changes are actually positive benefits for the foreign investor. The instability of World Stock Exchanges has caused the disparity between the American and Mexican currencies to vary greatly in the last few months. As it now stands, the Mexican Peso is at its all-time low, as compared to the Dollar. This newly-created Bear Market is great for investment. Basically, since your money is now worth more when exchanged into Pesos, you get the obvious benefits. Getting more Pesos for your Dollar positively affects many aspects of your investment in the Mexican Caribbean. As you may know already, land taxe...
