Why is it a Great Time to Refinance?

We’ve hit the biggest week-to-week drop in 30 yr. fixed mortgage interest rates since 1981 and lowest interest rate environment over the last 40 years! Although people may feel that these rates may continue to drop, today, this is one of THE LOWEST interest rate environments EVER! A very profitable environment right now for many qualified homeowners.

I would caution though, due to the massive layoffs and job cuts of the mortgage industry, lenders, brokers and loan officers are inundated with stacks of applications and limited man-power to process and approve the loans.

If you want to put time on your side, don’t lose upcoming critical business days to process your loan. Get the ball rolling and mortgage professionals can still guide you along by “FLOATING the RATE”. In others words, get your application submitted, get your home appraised, mortgage underwritten and approved. Once all this is done, THEN you can lock your interest rate.

Why Are Banks Altering Loan Terms?

April 23, 2009 Debt & Credit Cards, Entreprenuership, Mortgage Planning Comments Off on Why Are Banks Altering Loan Terms?

They want to be proactive in heading off foreclosures!  It is getting more and more costly for banks…

Banks are REDUCING their losses; their greatest assets are liabilities NOT acquiring real estate. Legal fees for a bank, per mortgage on a home, can easily be thousands of dollars! Plus, the costs of a bank to hold onto the property, they become responsible for potential violations of city, health and landlord codes. It’s reported that there are 1.5 million of foreclosures that are happening. Average foreclosure is about $10,000 in legal fees. Do the math, that’s over $15B alone in LEGAL FEES! Banks are getting slammed! Plus it creates a domino effect…you’ve got all kinds of losses from investors and interest, property up-keep and repairs…BANKS are responsible for that!

How would someone get this done?

Contact your lender, they’ll most likely send you to someone in the loss-mitigation department, they’ll help you w/ paperwork; many banks actually have service centers JUST to help you with this.

Now, if you’re NOT FACING FORECLOSURE and have a high credit score, you need to contact an independent mortgage planner that will help YOU control the equity in your home, NOT THE BANKS so you have greater financial security!
