Buying a home with an additional living area can make or break a deal. With the recent changes in laws in California related to accessory dwelling units (ADU), knowing the difference between the classification of a two-family property and an ADU is critical.  All of the agencies can look at a property differently based on how the appraiser classifies additional living area. The differences are important due to the wholesale lender pricing adjustments and required comps to support value as well as whether an agency will allow two-family properties. Much tougher than ADU. Also, some require additional assets as reserves to close the loan. Agents - Use the below information as a way to help “qualify” your buyers with proper expectations. DIFFERENT TYPES OF ADDITIONAL LIVING AREASBoth ADU's...

Getting pre-qualified or pre-approved for a mortgage loan gives you more concrete information about what you can and can’t afford.  However, the terms are very different and are misunderstood by many. Here are what those terms really mean. Pre-QualificationGetting pre-qualified for a loan is a very easy process. It’s an initial evaluation of your creditworthiness. You provide the lender your approximate income, the amount of debt you’re carrying, and any other important details from your credit history. The lender uses these figures, which have yet to be verified, to calculate how much money you might be eligible to borrow. The lender may provide you with a pre-qualification letter, which has more details about your likelihood of obtaining a loan.However, all information you provide dur...

Last week, local home loan observers were hardly surprised by the news that the Fed’s keyborrowing rate—the one that’s most important where Tustin home loan interest rates are concerned—was left as-is. At least for the moment.What that indicated to most educated guessers was that the previous three months’ worth ofrelatively weak economic news was probably behind the decision not to raise rates. The economicnews may not have been all that weak, but it was shaky enough to provide more good news whenit comes to Tustin home loans—still remarkably (and happily) hugging the bottom of the 4%range.The reason it’s fair to call the expert observers of Fed decisions “educated guessers” isbecause of the noncommittal language that usually comes out of Federal Open Market Committeeannouncements.

It’s called SLAM: an abbreviated approach that helps Tustin house hunters to quickly sortthrough listed houses for sale. Tustin homes that compare well using the SLAM categories warrantfurther investigation.The four parts of the SLAM list:Schools. The eventual resale value of a candidate property isn’t usually given muchconsideration early on—but should be. A major issue when it comes to resale is theneighborhood’s school district rating. Schools head the SLAM list because—especially for thosewho don’t have school-aged children—the quality of a property’s school district is easy tooverlook. It can also be an indicator of other community quality issues.Location. It’s the key element that can’t be adjusted, improved upon, or glossed over—andwhy “location location location” is the cliché t...

It’s April—a time of year when area homeowners who haven’t yet added their homes to theTustin listings may have a legitimate question about whether it’s too late to benefit from the springselling season. This year, they may also be concerned that the rise in mortgage interest rates coulddiscourage prospective buyers.The answer to the first question is a qualified not—not too late! The only qualification hasto do with the condition of the property itself. If it can be put into sound showable condition withina month or so, this is an excellent time to jump into the Tustin listings—for a number of reasons.We won’t know the actual foot traffic numbers for Tustin until after the dust has settled atthe end of summer, but we do know for certain that the law of supply and demand points to thisy...

Tustin house sales do usually respond in the seasonal pattern that is familiar in most otherareas. Spring and summer lead the way for weather-related, financial, school scheduling and otherfamily-related reasons. From now into well past July (and sometimes even August), house salesactivity can be counted on to peak. Those are the normal expectations.But when any segment of U.S. house sales numbers quadruple expectations even beforespring bulbs see daylight, that’s worthy of special attention. That was the case last Thursday whenthe Commerce Department reported that in February, purchases of newly built homes rose by morethan 6%. Since The Wall Street Journal’s panel of experts had forecast 1.4%, it drew headlines.In fact, this was the second month in a row for sharp rises in U.S. new ho...
