I will ride high on this sweet Letter of Recommendation for the next few days!

24 02 2014

keusIt is my pleasure to highly recommend Ms. Linda Fox for her excellent mortgage brokering services. I recently (July 2013) had her assist me in getting a mortgage, and I couldn’t be happier with the service.

Linda was extremely professional and helpful throughout the entire process. She informed me of different loan options I could avail of, their pros and cons, and worked with some significant constraints I had in terms of choosing an end lender. She communicated very clearly and in a timely manner, and was very responsive regardless of the time of day or week. I always felt like Linda had my best interests in mind, and I never tried to push something that wasn’t a good fit for my needs.

As a result of Linda’s assistance, I was able to close my home purchase on time and received a rate I was very happy with. I would be happy to work with Linda again, and would highly recommend her to any of my friends looking to purchase a house or refinance.

John R. Talbott: Homes – Buy Now!

9 01 2012

I have been waiting for more than five years to offer this advice. It is now time in most cities across the country to buy a new home or refinance your existing home with thirty-year fixed rate mortgage debt. And this from the author of The Coming Crash in the Housing Market published in 2003 and my 2006 book, Sell Now! The End of the Housing Bubble. Let me explain why.

Own vs. Rent: A Growing Reason to Buy – WSJ.com

30 11 2011

Home prices and mortgage rates have fallen so far that the monthly cost of owning a home is more affordable than at any point in the past 15 years.

The Wall Street Journal’s third-quarter survey of housing-market conditions in 28 of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas found that home values declined in all but five markets compared with the second quarter, according to data from Zillow Inc. Meanwhile, rent levels have risen briskly across the country and mortgage rates, hovering around 4%, are the lowest in six decades.ears and is less expensive than renting in a growing number of cities.

 

As a result, monthly mortgage payments on the median priced home—including taxes and insurance—are lower than the average rent levels in 12 metro areas, according to data compiled for The Wall Street Journal by Marcus & Millichap, a real-estate brokerage that tracked 27 metro areas. It remains less expensive to rent than to buy in 15 cities. But affordability hasn’t done much to lift the sagging housing sector because many would-be buyers are unwilling to purchase a home or unable to qualify for a mortgage.
