What can I buy for $1600/month?
If you’re paying $1600/ month you could purchase a home for $300,000 and have about the same payment as rent. After considering the tax benefits and the equity you pay down each month, your net monthly payment is going to be far less than your rent. It’s a great time to buy because rates are so low and our 5% down NO Mortgage Insurance loan is helping homeowners get the lowest payment for their home.
On a 300,000 purchase with our NO Mortgage Insurance loan your principal and interest payment would only be $1,444. After considering your property taxes and home owner’s insurance the monthly obligation for your home would be an estimated $1674. However owning a home has its perks and one of them is a tax write off. Another is you pay down the principal every month which helps grow the equity you have built into your home. After factoring in these two benefits your net payment is only $963 for a 300,000 home. For more information or to fill out an application online, go to: www.coastlendmortgage.com

HARP – Help for Underwater Homeowners

FHA Anti Flipping Policy Suspended
FHA announced last week they will keep their Anti Flip rules suspended in order to aid the housing market recovery. By suspending the Anti Flip rule the allow people to resell a home to an FHA buyer within 90 days of the purchase and for a profit greater than 20%. This helps because it makes it easier for investors to purchase, fix up, and sell homes for profit. Investors make money at the same time the inventory of houses is reduced. Usually these are houses that would sit dilapidated and bring down their neighborhood values. So it’s good for investors, good for neighborhoods, and good for the market overall.
FHA Announced Fee Increases
FHA hinted they would likely be raising fees in 2012. This would be the third time in as many years they have increased the monthly premium on FHA loans. It’s been a costly reality for those who are trying to buy with an FHA loan as the monthly premium has already more than doubled in the last 2 years. Also existing FHA lien holders are at a disadvantage because they can’t take advantage of a lower interest rate refinance in most cases. FHA has a streamline program that allows for an FHA to FHA refinance with little or no cost. So many FHA loans have interest rates above 5.5% and could benefit from a 3.875% refinance. The problem is the mortgage insurance premium has increased so the interest rate benefits will be cancelled out by the new higher insurance premium. My solution is to let existing FHA loans maintain the same level of insurance so they can save with a lower rate.
