Conforming product niche --- 90% CLTV Fixed 2nds and 85% CLTV HELOCs behind our conforming 1st • Conforming rates (very competitive.....consistently, it is worth the look): • True 80-10-10 purchase product, this: 1) Gets rid of MI 2) Allows you to have a competitive conforming 1st. 2nds up to $250K, this can have lower monthly mortgage payments to your borrowers as there is no MI! • Fixed 30/30 purchase 2nds up to 90% CLTV. Not many lenders offer 30 year Fixed 2nds! • 30 year Fixed 2nd rates in the low 5%s • NO title insurance on Fixed 2nds • Only one lender, one appraisal needed for our 1st - 2nd / HELOC combos • 85% CLTV HELOCs, HELOCs can be all cash out! • 85% LTV one loan cash out product Portfolio product niche --- 90% LTV, one loan, no MI on purchase and refi! • HUGE Refi niche is paying off any subject property mortgage including unseasoned 2nds can go one loan, no MI to 90%! This is a huge niche. • Both of these products are offered one loan, no MI up to $750K! The primary wage earner needs 740+ credit, max DTI = 43%, P&I products only, owner occupied only, 6 months reserves. If you need more loan amount, our 85% CLTV purchase and refi product can go up to $1.5M! 85% CLTV only requires 720+ credit on the primary wage earner. This would be our 1st/2nd-HELOC combo.

Credit reports. Once you get into a purchase contract I might re run the credit if the previous credit check is 30 days old. I do not pull a new credit report before we close your home loan in most cases. This helps if you make major charges by accident or make late payment once you get into contract. No surpruses at end takes a lot if stress off the loan process.

Agri-Access recently rolled out a niche product called the RuraLiving Home Mortgage Program. RuraLiving offers 15 or 30 year fixed rates for hobby farm properties that typically do not conform to traditional secondary market financing, and rates are typically 50-60 bps over conforming. Eligible properties are 5-160+ acres, allow Schedule F income, outbuildings and distant comps.

I do not require 12months credit history to get an FHA loan. I just require one credit score and an automated approval by FHA which is usually easy unless you have derogatory on your credit with limited positive trade lines.

conventional rates today? My 720 FICO W2 employee client is buying 450,000 SFR home with 20% down. The rate is 4.25% with adjusted origination of -$1,200. That means the rate of 4.25% covers all lender fees, origination fees and gives $1,200 to cover escrow fees or other third party fees to include pre-paids. Some call this a "no cost loan" and others call it "no lender fee loan". I call it a great deal!!! The appraisal fee is $350 for conventional loans. That's not too bad. FHA would be 3.75% with much bigger lender credit. Just FYI. rate shopping saves thousands sometimes. I am booked this week but have many appointments free next week and available by phone when available 24/7.

Use W2 income ONLY for FHA and Conventional loans! No tax returns and the loan conditions or reduced qualifications that come with them. *Have a borrower that filed 2106 expenses & as a result they do not qualify for a loan? *Haven't filed taxes or extension or amended taxes? -Need W-2's & Current Paystubs -NO TAX RETURNS REQUIRED! -Signed 4506 required (we will only run for W-2 transcripts only) -FHA or Conventional loans -Purchases & Refinances **If borrower has rental income or schedule E/C/F income or any other income on the tax return being used they are not eligible for W2 verification** This process has always been allowed and we still do it. Many lenders want to see your tax returns but it is not required by FHA, Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae or Freddie Mac. This has made closing loans easier for me with less conditions or red flags waived. I also only pull credit report one time. We do not check it after you are in contract at all or even refresh the liabilities. One Credit pull eliminated closing headaches. I have some very cool niches!!!

I am a direct lender with my focus on residential real estate with fast closings and low fees. We are also the 2nd largest broker in the country which gives me many loan products to include SBA loans. My focus in this post is SBA (Small Business Administration) Loans. SBA loans: 10% to 15% down options (even 100% LTV options with cross collateralization of properties), up to 25 years fully amortizing to 5 million loan amount. Purchase, cash out refinance (or buy out partner) and construction (from the ground up) of owner occupied commercial real estate. I need 3 years business Tax returns and personal tax returns of anyone owning 20%+ of business. Business occupancy needs to be 51% of rental sq ft of building. Business size needs to be less than 500 employees and annual sales under 7.5 Million annual averaged over 3 year period (some exceptions as with Grocery stores who have small margins). Rates are WSJ prime (3.25%) plus margin of 1.5 to 4% (4.75% to 7.25% fully indexed rates depending on variable or fixed rate and overall transaction). Can do Franchise if approved through SBA. I need up to 60 days to close with 45 day financing contingency period. I can be closed faster than 60 days but helps to have longer escrow due to appraisal and environmental process. Start up business will depend on management experience in that business and strength of borrower and collateral. Rural areas included. Up front cost depends on several variables. Appraisal fees and environmental report generally range between 7k-10k. Most commercial appraisals are between 2,500$-$5,500, loan packaging fee $1,000-$1,500. SBA guarantee fees range from 0% of loan amount to 2.76% of total loan amount which can be financed. No apartments with SBA program. We do those as a regular commercial loan when over 4 units. Please call me for more info at 661-544-8787, markbarrettreverse@gmail.com or my SBA business partner: Jason Brock Office: 408-556-6545 Cell: 408-892-2133, jason.brock@bridgebank.com

I am still doing NEW CONSTRUCTION FHA Manufactured home financing. FHA ONE TIME CLOSE PROGRAM Disclaimer: All FHA guidelines must be met Program Overview Construction to Permanent loans for new manufactured and modular homes. Our One Time Close program provides construction financing, lot purchase and Permanent loan, all wrapped up in one loan. Why worry about re-qualifying, re-appraisals or incurring additional costs? We provide interim financing and administration for true one-time close staged funded construction-to-permanent loans. Designed for manufactured and modular housing, this program allows us the ability to offer our realtor and clients this unique loan product. We underwrite and approve the permanent portion of the loan before the construction begins. The construction portion of the loan is also underwritten and approved. When all conditions for closing are cleared, other than the final construction related conditions, the closing will be coordinated. Once closed, construction can begin. Because the permanent loan is closed before construction begins, there is no “re-qualifying” the borrower. This is a true one-time close; therefore, the borrowers will not need to return to the settlement agent for a second closing once construction is complete. Key Benefits • Reduction in total cost due to only one closing • Reduces interest rate risk • FHA 96.5 LTV financing allowed • Only one closing prior to the start of construction • No payments due from borrower during construction • Borrower’s first payment begins once construction is complete • No credit, document or appraisal expiration once the loan closes • No re-qualification of borrower once construction is complete • Builder/Retailer is allowed staged funding draws during construction based on line-item percentage completion 660 minimum FICO, Trade-ins not allowed (We give value to the land, subject to FHA’s guidelines), The borrower cannot perform any of the work, Borrower must sign off on the interim draws as per FHA guidelines. We will not accept an assignment to the builder/dealer. Types of Loans FHA only (Owner Occupied) Eligible Properties Manufactured and Modular Homes Not available for Site-Built Homes Loan Terms 15 Year Fixed 30 Year Fixed Max/Min Loan Amounts FHA’s max county limits, Min loan amount $150,000

Mortgage made easy during tax season: If you are a W2 wage earner and that's the sole source of your income that you re claiming then I will use your W2's to qualify you. We run 4506 W2 validations with IRS to verify your employer filed a W2. We do not see your tax returns nor do we run 4506T 1040 Tax transcripts from IRS. This helps on many fronts. Amended tax returns won't be an issue. Tax extensions are not needed. 1 time 2106 expense won't be seen. This make lending much easier with less conditions.

Rates keep dropping:) If you are getting a loan have your lender lock today. I can lock until 9pm and weekends.

Why you should use me as a backup Lender? I'm fast, I process my own loans, I do not need seller concessions for FHA/VA loans. My FHA and VA fees are so low we can cover the buyers and sellers Closing Cost in most cases. I can even cover all or part of buyers closing cost on many conventional loans. Plus, No Appraisal reviews, I don't trace gift funds, I don't have credit history or rent history requirements over 580 FICO, collections don't need to be paid off, I use W2's for income instead of tax returns. I don't follow QM/QRM DTI restrictions. My max FHA DTI is 47/57%. I am a large California direct lender and the 2nd largest wholesale broker in the country.

All lenders have their niches to help clients get into homes. Here are some of mine for loans over 150k: 1. I am direct lender with ability to broker to over 70 lenders. Wholesale rates mean low rates and fees. 2. I price my loans so buyer doesn't have to pay closing cost and sometimes we even pay sellers closing cost to win the bid. No sellers concessions needed!!! 3. I only pull credit once. no worries on a new report at closing. 4. For W2 wage earners we only use W2's. Verify with IRS your W2s have been filed. Never see your tax return or 2106 expense. 5. Down payment assistance to 580 FICO and you don't have to be first time home buyer. 6. I process loans that need to close fasts to save time. That's control. 7. Appraisal fees and "sellers credit" for tax proration's count towards buyers required down payment. 8. We don't trace gift funds. Just wire the money to escrow from giftor which proves ability to gift. 9. No min credit history required. We go off score not history or amount of credit. 10. Collections do not have to be paid off. $20k in auto charge offs do not matter. 11. No appraisal reviews. I can go on and on with some of my cool niches that Fit FHA. Fannie and Freddie guidelines but the best part is the low rates, fees and speed.

Credit reports. We only run credit once within 20 days of initial contract date. So no risk of another credit report ran once you have a purchase agreement. That takes a lot of stress off the process. Charge new furniture by accident and we wont know.

Rent vs buy? It is generally easier and cheaper to buy a house than renting a nice apartment.

Published on 2014-03-14 13:58:36 GMT

Tax season. How to file your taxes if you are getting ready to buy a home and you need to use the higher income from 2013 to qualify? Take the returns to the local IRS on Coffee Rd, give them a personal check for what you owe. Have IRS make copy of first page and stamp it. By doing this process the loan officer will be able to verify with the IRS that your returns are processed in 3-5 weeks.
