Inlanta Mortgage - Madison's insight:
Is A Reverse Mortgage A Good Idea? 

Pros and cons of a reverse mortgage and how they work A reverse mortgage can be a great tool for seniors looking to get some equity out of their home. However, with so much misinformation out there about reverse mortgages, it can be confusing to navigate an already tricky program. There are also many pros and cons of a reverse mortgage that should be looked at in detail. 

 If you are wondering how a reverse mortgage works, be sure to check out +Bill Gassett's detailed article on the topic! It's a detailed resource for any senior thinking about getting a reverse mortgage.
more...
Bill Gassett's curator insight, April 18, 4:54 PM

Probably one of the most confusing loan products to may people is what is known as a reverse mortgage. Reverse mortgages allow those seniors who are 62 years of age or older to tap the equity in their home in the form of a monthly payment.

 

Instead of paying a mortgage to live in your home the lender pays you from your equity to stay in the property, hence the term reverse mortgage.

 

There are however many pros and cons of a reverse mortgage that anyone considering this type of loan product should understand! In the article you will see a detailed description of both the advantages and disadvantages of using a reverse mortgage.

 

There is also a very helpful video that gives you some samples of how reverse mortgages work. If you have ever considered getting a reverse mortgage this is an article you will not want to miss.

 

Seniors who embark on getting a reverse mortgage should also understand there are a number of scams floating around. When getting a reverse mortgage it is imperative to work with a reputable mortgage company and not someone you saw advertising on late night television.

 

Besides the helpful guide to reverse mortgage products you will also see some other interesting financial resource articles from Kyle Hiscock, Luke Skar and Paul Sian.

 

If you find the article helpful, please consider either giving it a scoop or share on one of the other social networks. The more people that truly understand how reverse mortgages work the better!

How To Determine The Costs To Buy A Home

How To Determine The Costs To Buy A Home | Top Real Estate and Mortgage Articles | Scoop.it
A pretty common question from home buyers is how much does it cost to buy a home. Find out what costs are associated with buying a home here!

Via Kyle Hiscock
Inlanta Mortgage - Madison's insight:

One of the most common questions from buyers is how much does it cost to buy a home.

Many home buyers believe the cost to buy a home is as simple as calculating a percentage for their down payment, but it's not.

There are different costs that a buyer should be aware of when buying a home both upfront costs and future costs.  Upfront costs sometimes are referred to as closing costs.

Future costs are ones that a buyer will inevitably face at one time in the future and shouldn't forget about them!  Forgetting about future costs can lead to financial stress in the future.

In the newest article over on Rochester's Real Estate Blog you will find out what the upfront costs are to buy a home, the future costs are to buy a home, and also some tips to help save money for the costs to buy a home!

Larry Matthews's curator insight, February 20, 7:46 AM

Costs can differ from location to location my area of expertise is Nova Scotia but even here costs can vary from municipality to municipality with differences in deed transfer tax and other costs. Average closing costs are in the 2% to 3% of the purchase price in Nova Scotia.

Make Sure the Home you Want to Purchase QUALIFIES for a Mortgage

Inlanta Mortgage - Madison's insight:

Don't Let Your Home Disqualify You From Mortgage Pre-Approval!

 

It has been said before, but it bears repeating: buying a home is a process of steps, not a single transaction. Obviously, one of the most important steps is getting approved for a loan. The next step is finding a home that will meet the criteria of the mortgage. It is very possible that you could find a house, or property, that you fall in love with but the mortgage does not cover the property.

 

When you are pre-approved for a mortgage, take some time to discuss your home preferences with your lender. This could prevent you from making a big mistake in choosing the wrong kind of property.

It's fairly common that sellers will hire an agent who is a family member or friend. Is it a good idea?

In some circumstances it can be a good idea, if the friend or family member is qualified to get the job done. It's important that if you're considering a friend or family member you properly interview them.

The ULTIMATE Guide to Winter Curb Appeal
The Best Winter Curb Appeal Ideas from 18 Professionals

Getting a home ready for sale is similar to picking out the right outfit for a vacation; you have to know the climate and the season. Tips and ideas that are great for summer are not quite as effective in the fall and winter. To help people out through the holidays and beyond we have combined a list of ideas and tips focused on listing a home during the winter.

These ideas go way beyond cleaning up the home and putting out some nice candles for a pleasant aroma. We have specific points for preparing the lawn and shrubs, ideas for small details that make a big impression and some wonderful ways to make a home brighter and more inviting.

But you don’t have to take our word for it. We have input from a range of people. The first section involves curb appeal ideas from interior designers and home stagers including Diana Hadchity Chedrawy Red Barrinuevo and Lorrie White. These people make their living helping home sellers and they understand the current trends as well as tried and true ways of increasing a home’s appeal.

We also have a wealth of knowledge from experienced real estate agents including Ryan Fitzgerald @Bill Gassett @Karen Highland @Kyle Hiscock @Anita Clark @Lynn Pineda @Paul Sian Ferris Property Group Wendy Weir David Cronnin Jeff Knox @Debbie Drummond @Angela Duong Dan Seim and @Xavier De Buck. These fine individuals have provided their best practices in order to help you be successful with selling your home.

You can never have too many curb appeal tips, which is why we included a few more in the resource section from top bloggers including June Seebohm RISMedia @David R. Millar The Hunter Group Real Estate and @Janis Borgueta!
