Mortgage Rates Remain Stable to Start 2020 |®

Mortgage Rates Remain Stable to Start 2020 |® Improved economic data and market sentiment has contributed to interest-rate stability in recent weeks.

When it comes to your mortgage, qualification ratios may seem like something from your high school calculus class. It's actually not rocket science. The math is simple, and the concept is sound.

Income Ratio is your total monthly housing payment as a percentage of your gross monthly income. Your total housing payment consists of principal, interest, property taxes, hazard insurance, mortgage insurance (if applicable) and any condo/co-op or association fees.

Debt Ratio is your total monthly housing payment plus any recurring monthly debts as a percentage of your gross monthly income. Other debts include all other payments such as cars, credit cards, student loans, personal loans, retirement savings loans, etc.

How High Can they Go? It varies by loan program and other factors, but the approximate range for your debt ratio is from about 33% to 43%.

Example: If your total gross income is $5,000 per month, your total housing payment plus recurring debt payments should not exceed approximately $2,150 for a 43% ratio or $1,650 for 33% ratio.

What's Right for Me? Truth is, everyone is different. Some people are comfortable using a higher percentage of their income, and others are not. Family size, other expenses and lifestyle can all have an impact.

I'm happy to take the time to go through the numbers with you. Together, we can help determine a comfortable payment and corresponding purchase price. Reach out today.

Happy New Year Everybody!!!

Just an FYI... Our office is closed today. We will resume normal business hours tomorrow 1/02/2020.

Hope you all are having a fun and safe New Year day

Another amazing year is rounding out and coming to an end.

But no need to worry, because a new year is upon us and with it comes the blessing of new and cherished memories to decorate your life with, new and exciting opportunities and challenges, new goals to smash and new chances to make the wrongs of the past right.

Let's all accept these blessings with open arms and in doing so, learn to break bad habits, end dead cycles, take time to learn new skills, do good deeds, visit new places, try new foods and take new and calculated risks!

Wishing you all the best in life.

Here's to good health, happiness and prosperity in this year and all the years to come! Happy New Year!

We asked a bunch of strangers what their biggest #obstacle to #homeownership is. We heard the same reason over and over... and it will almost certainly NOT shock you! 🧐😱

Considering taking the leap into first-time home-ownership but uncertain whether or not you should just continue to rent?

“The biggest mistake millennials are making is not buying their first home,” according to financial expert David Bach. Home-ownership increases your net worth 44 times more than renting, and if that isn't reason enough for you to buy, take a look at a few of the other Pro's to owning your own home.

With a home purchase, you can:

• Build equity (investment) in your own home
• Enjoy a stable housing payment (no surprise increases in rent)
• Potentially take advantage of tax breaks
• Control your own space (think pets, paint, knocking down a wall...)

With today's rates, low down payment programs, an backed by your history of renting,
a home of your own may be closer than you think. Reach out today!
