Obama’s Mortgage Task Force is a joke

[yt-video id=”jABIMdwj5iA” width=”480″ height=”385″]
Via NY Daily News: “Three months ago, in his State of the Union speech, President Obama announced a new task force to investigate mortgage fraud and bring a degree of relief to the 12 million American families who either lose their homes or in danger of losing them. The new mortgage-backed securities working group would be chaired by New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, U.S. Attorney John Walsh in Colorado and three Washington insiders from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission. Obama said “This new entity will hold accountable those who broke the law, speed assistance to homeowners and help turn the page on an era of recklessness that makes so many Americans.” Whether the President, Attorney General and others have plans to come around to this task one day, “speed” was a terrible word to choose .. Because 85 days after that speech, there is no sign of activity … “* Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks the down.Read more from Mike Gecan and Arnie Graf: opinion/obama-mortgage-unit-awol-article-1.1063094

Applying For Mortgage Loan Can be Difficult For Manufactured Homes

Manufactured homes are commonly referred to as mobile homes or trailers. These kind of housing are built in factories using a non-removable steel chassis.

Compared to site built homes modular homes, manufactured homes are less expensive and oftentimes decrease in value over time. Since these parts are not always placed on a permanent foundation, applying for a financing or a re-finance can be more difficult.

Compared to applying for a finance for a traditional house, home financing for manufactured homes can be more difficult . Besides, the interest rates and duration of the payment is higher than that of traditional types of homes. The main reason why it is difficult to get a finance for this type of house is the depreciation of the manufactured house.

Moreover, payments for this kind of financing depends on the interest rate that you are paying. Some of the factors that determines the amount of Stafford VA mortgage that you will get are your credit history and your monthly income.

There are a lot of loan options for this type of housing, but the interest rates are a little higher. Likewise, you have to specify if the loan is just for the manufactured home alone or the one which includes loan for the house as well as the land.

Since manufactured home financing is different than that of a ‘stick built’ home or a modular home, construction lenders have different requirements in manufactured home financing. You have more financing options and lending companies to choose from unlike in the past. Make sure that you have fully read and understood the terms and conditions of this kind of loan. It can be tough but with a little help from your agent you can get the best offer.

Sedona AZ Real Estate Market Update: 2/2012

The results are in on the 2011 SEDONA REAL ESTATE market and the news is encouraging. Property sales for the year again exceeded those of 2006. The Mean record Sales price of single family homes hit its bottom since 2003 at Mid-Year ($330,000) and subsequently reflected back to $350k by year’s end. The impact of repossessions dropped considerably with REO sales down 24% and REO inventory down about fifty percent. We continue to have a long way to go so as to get past the foreclosure crisis completely, but this is progress, particularly with the banks’ new resolve to prevent short-sales from going into foreclosure.

As for the new year, 2012 is starting out with a bang. With continued positive signs for the national economy, purchasers are flooding the market with renewed confidence at a time that is normally our slow season. January sales were the highest since 2005. Current Outstanding sales ( homes under contract ) are strong and their price point is considerably higher than we’ve seen in quite a bit. Inventory, on the other hand, has dropped nearly to 2006 levels.

My prediction is that we shall see considerable buttressing of the housing market nationally and regionally across the spring season – particularly if unemployment drops continue and the stock exchange breaks thru the 13,000 mark.

Prices are still comparatively low, but eventually the Law of Demand and Supply will start to make itself evident. I think it will be earlier. Demand is gaining momentum as inventory is running low. In the meantime, the price suppressing REO lucky card is having less of an impact. We will see prices heading up this year, for a change.

Good news for property sellers and the economy in general. If you are a purchaser, staying on the sidelines too long nonetheless, could get more expensive.

We’ll be sending out a follow-up newsletter next, so keep an eye open for that.
