Wow, when they called today's real estate market a "shifting market," they were right on target. It keeps shifting, and shifting, and shifting ... Every time we turn on the news there's a new development that affects our economy and therefore the ability of buyers to "buy" and the sellers to "sell." SHIFT, the most recent book by Gary Keller, co-founder and Chairman of Keller Williams Realty Inc., begins with the following paragraph: "The Real Estate Market has shifted drastically and dramatically. Sales volume and the number of transactions have dropped significantly. Inventory has reached an all-time high. Buyers have never been more reluctant. Fear is rampant, anxiety is high, and people are getting out of the business left and right. Sounds familiar? Sure it does. The year was 1979!...

INTEREST ONLY PAYMENT CALCULATOR *CLICK HERE*Computes the monthly savings for and Interest Only Payment Loan!

The interest only monthly payment is the amount of the interest rate times the original loan amount divided by twelve. No principal is paid, and the loan balance does not decrease. You may pay the interest only payment amount or pay the fully amortized payment amount. The interest only payment option is only available in the initial years of the loan term. Conforming loan programs have the interest only term for ten to fifteen years. Jumbo programs vary from three years up to ten years. Interest only loan ...

If you are thinking of putting your house on the market this summer, you will find yourself competing with some tough company. Increased foreclosures, builders spec homes and fall out properties, as well as short sales are increasing inventories.  With this in mind here are a few pointers to help you get your house sold:           Small Fixes Make a Big Impact.  Don't sell your property "as is". You can really stand out in a crowd just by completing minor repairs and improvements to your home and property. Faucet drips, re-grouting tile, touch up painting and freshening the flowerbeds all go a long way to get your home an offer.           Get Rid of Clutter.  Stash the family photos and memorabilia. You want potential buyers to see the home as "their" home not yours. It is to your advan...

Even with all the challenges surrounding FHA and conventional lending there still are two 100% choices.  Following is a terrific loan that is geographic specific:           USDA Rural Housing Guaranteed Loan 100% financing No monthly mortgage insurance Fixed rate Property must be outside the city limits of Lafayette/West Lafayette-small towns such as Mulberry, Romney, Monticello, and Crawfordsville are included No mortgage limits, however income guidelines based on family size apply.  The good news is that these income limits are scheduled to increase at some point this fall Alternate credit sources allowable           VA = A Great Loan For Veterans 100% financing No monthly mortgage insurance Fixed rate No geographic limitations Buyer must be on active duty, a Veteran, Reservist or in ...

One question that I receive frequently these days is, "How's business?" The questioner is often surprised when I answer, "Great!"  Most of the news is gloom and doom these days and it is true that over 260 lending institutions and private mortgage insurance companies have gone bankrupt.  But there are still loans to be done and I feel that due to some of the choices we have made in the past few years Tippecanoe Mortgage has weathered the storm quite well.  I like to think that a big part of our business has to do with the fact that a large percentage is comprised of repeat clients and referrals.  I have always made it a priority to try and stay in touch with those we have assisted (newsletters such as this being one method) to let you all know what is happening in the markets.  But one ...

The second big change covered by the 2008 housing bill is the loss of down payment assistance from not-for-profit organizations to fund down payments for FHA loans.  What this means to the consumer is that they will have to provide their own down payment money, or obtain gift money from family in order to fund their own down payments.  In addition the required down payment on an FHA loan will increase to 3.5%.  While this could not necessarily be construed as a positive development, down payment assistance will be available until September 30th of 2008 so consumers who wish to avail themselves of these programs should begin looking seriously to purchase as soon as possible.  To recap on the benefits of the FHA loan: Loan amounts up to $271,050 3.5% down payment required vs. 5.0% for con...
