Qualifying for a Mortgage? Don't Step in a Large Deposit Mess By far, one of the most confounding experiences when one goes to obtain a mortgage is the sourcing of "large deposits" on a bank statement.  This is our industry's gift that keeps giving.  However, there are some ways to avoid inadvertently stepping into trouble and like with most things in life, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.   What Is a Large Deposit?Most of the time a mortgage lender will define a large deposit as a non-payroll deposit that exceeds 50% of your gross monthly income.  So, let's say you provide a bank statement to us.  We see an ATM or teller deposit for $6175 and your gross monthly income is $10K.  You can expect we will ask to know what the deposit is and where it came from.  Different len...

What Is an Escrow Account? When renters desire to become home buyers, they quickly learn once in the mortgage process that their single rent payment will morph into "PITI" or "principal, interest, taxes and insurance," or a "total monthly housing payment."  So, yes, there are additional monthly expenses to consider when you become an owner.  Historically, ownership has bestowed tax benefit on the buyer and that's been an offset to the higher cost of ownership and because of this, the "rent vs. own" calculation has been used to more fairly compare the cost of putting a roof over one's head.  Rent may be simpler, but ownership is more comprehensive, if more expensive. Let's assume that our buyer has done the comparison and decides to move forward with purchasing a place of his own.  At so...

What is a "Bully" offer?Many areas of the country have been, and still are, experiencing extreme price increases in home values over the past decade.Having been in the business for quite a while, I've seen the cycles and the trends.It tends to create a frenzy that in some cases, can bring ot the worst in people.One of those by-products of a crazy market is the "Bully" offer.A Bully offer is, in essence, one designed to put pressure on the seller.  They are typically (but not always) cash offers with very aggressive terms, coupled with a very quick deadline on the offer.  The purchase price offered is usually not as aggressive as the terms of the offer.In extreme upwards markets, a bully offer is usually intended on "locking down" the property before the market has the opportunity to spe...

142 people came through my open house, with SPIES........142 people came through my open house this weekend.....Yup.  That's right.  142 people.We marketed this property the right way for this market, and it resulted in 142 people coming to our open house.Crazy market in LA.  Cray-Cray.But wait, there's more!We had a GOOD cash offer during the week.  The only thing is, they put a 24-hour deadline on their offer. And my clients wanted to stick to the plan of waiting until after the open house to allow the market to speak to them.  So we respectfully declined, and asked if they could please wait until after the open house 5 days later for a response.  Mind you, their offer was written sight unseen because there were no showings allowed until after the open house.But wait, there's more!The...

Ten offers - all over asking price. Down-payments ranging from 20-50% or more. Buyers removing their appraisal contingencies, confident that their offers of 5-10% over asking price will nevertheless will be approved by independent appraisers. And if not, they're able, willing and eager to pay the difference in cash.In what highly-desired section of Los Angeles is this happening? Studio City and especially Sherman Oaks, due to its proximity to the 101-405 freeway interchange.What's happening in the Valley is two-fold and it's definitely not a "bubble." First, since film-making has come back to L.A. due to financial incentives initiated by Mayor Garcetti, there has been an influx of film people with the money to purchase homes. Second, because the Westside is very expensive and has experi...
