10 US Cities With Highest Mortgage Denial Rates
January 16, 2020 By syounger Leave a Comment
For many, owning property is seen as a rite of passage. At the same time, for most people, accomplishing this dream is largely dependent on the approval of a mortgage. For this reason, it is important for people to think carefully when deciding who to ask for a mortgage. Some cities have a higher mortgage approval rate than others.
Identifying Problems With A Mortgage Application
Before applying for a mortgage, it is important to think about the most common reasons why someone might be rejected. First, if someone has a debt to income ratio that is too high, they are more likely to be turned down for a mortgage.
It is understandable that if someone already has too much debt, they are unlikely to be able to handle the added burden of a mortgage. Another possible reason for being turned down might be out of someone’s control entirely. This has more to do with ge ...

The Secrets Of Selling Real Estate
January 15, 2020 By syounger Leave a Comment
When it comes to selling a home, there is a lot to think about. While most people know that the best time to list a home is in the Spring (due to the fervor of the summer), the real estate market keeps rumbling along no matter what time of year it is.
With this in mind, it is important to have a firm strategy in place. This comes in the form of a real estate professional. In addition to trusting the professionals, there are a few other important points to keep in mind.
Don’t Trust The Online Estimates
The internet has impacted almost every area of the economy. This includes real estate. Many homeowners love visiting sites to get an estimate of how much the home is worth. Unfortunately, these online estimates are often inaccurate.
There is not a real estate professional employed by these sites who is driving around taking estimates on homes. There is no way these sites can kn ...

A 2 Year Plan or A 2 Month Plan, Get To Know A Realtor and a lender NOW!

To move from renting to owning, get a lender and Realtor on board NOW!
I’ve had several people ask me for help finding a rental property lately. The reasons for renting vs. buying vary from loan qualifying barriers to being newly relocated and wanting to spend some time finding the perfect neighborhood in which to buy. Given that we are still seeing a heated rental market with inventory down and prices steadily increasing, owners can easily lock renters into year long or more lease lengths. If you’re currently a renter who plans to eventually be a homeowner, when is the right time to start talking to a Realtor and a lender? The time is NOW!
Moving from unqualified to qualified for a loan is a lot like losing weight. It typically requires a strategic plan, some discipline, and maybe a bit of coaching. Very few of us would start a diet pla ...

Home Warranties: Are They Worth It?
January 14, 2020 By syounger Leave a Comment
Owning a home comes with major responsibilities and also offers major questions. One of the biggest questions that people will have to answer is whether or not they want to take out a home warranty. In order to decide whether a home warranty is worth it, it is important to first understand what a home warranty is.
What Is A Home Warranty?
A home warranty is not the same thing as home insurance. First of all, homeowners insurance is something that is required to purchase a home in the first place. Home insurance is in place to protect the homeowner, and the lender, from disaster.
In contrast, a home warranty is not required but might be offered by the lender or a third party. A home warranty is designed to cover the repairs that come with routine wear and tear on various home appliances. This includes items such as the HVAC system, plumbing, and electricity (but everyone needs ...
