How To Use Hard Money Short Term Loans To Your Advantage

Hard Money loans are commercial real estate loans that are short term in nature for business and investment purposes.  One of the key advantages of these type of loans is quick access to non-qualifying financing.  This type of loan is ideal for a person or a company, such as an LLC, that wishes to buy a foreclosure at the courthouse steps as a short term investment. Many properties in this category need repairs and their condition would not qualify for traditional financing due to appraisal requirements.  It could also be a resale where the property needs work in order to resell...

Do you need a shot of Non QM to get you over a Housing Crisis Hangover?

Maybe this is just what the doctor ordered.  Remnants from the crisis, such as a Short Sale, Foreclosure, or even possibly a bankruptcy, could still be holding you back.  Quality Mortgages (QM) defined is that square box of perfection that you must fit in to get many mortgages today.  Many significant credit events under QM loans require up to seven years to be eligible.  However, the market is now calling out to you.  It’s ever changing and adapting to the presence of need.  A newer category called Non QM is evolving to meet the needs of people for loans th...

Private label Reverse Mortgages hit the Sweet Spot!

Private label reverse mortgages are hitting the sweet spot for higher priced homes in DC and the surrounding suburbs in Northern VA.  Many retirees have lived in their homes for a long time and have a very low cost basis.  They are comfortable and they don’t necessarily want to sell or downsize.  In addition, their home provides fond memories of family and is still a place where everyone gathers and feels at home.  Until recently, all homeowners with higher priced homes that have appreciated over the decades have pretty much been relegated to the HECM governme...

Reverse Mortgages and Social Security

Recently, there has been a lot of hype over the suggested strategy to utilize a government insured Reverse Mortgage to provide for more benefits over a lifetime with Social Security.  I do not claim to know the exact reasoning or motivation behind the adverse claims made by the Consumer Financial Protection Board (CFPB) regarding this issue, but the agency feels that using a Reverse to maximize Social Security benefits is too expensive.  I feel that this is a bit of a myopic view given the broad practical applications of the program but would certainly agree if this was the only...
