Miami’s Gem: Ancient Spanish Monastery

August 26th, 2015

Miami’s Gem: Ancient Spanish Monastery

16711 West Dixie Highway North Miami Beach, FL 33160

Ancient Spanish Monastery -  Church of St. Bernard de Clairvaux

Within the busy streets of Miami is a precious jewel of the city with the a serene, solemn and spiritual scene. The Ancient Spanish Monastery is a prized treasure of the city and South Florida as it is one of the oldest infrastructure the city and is originally brought from Spain to Florida piece by piece. It is considered as the “the biggest jigsaw puzzle in history,” according to Time magazine in 1953. It is a Cloister of Monastery with a beautiful garden designed like the original Segovian garden, fascinating view of the sunrise and sunset an of course a solemn place.

The Monastery of St. Bernard de Clairvaux is built in the 133 AD in Segovia, Spain. It was the home of the Cistercian monk and mystic for 700 years until it was seized, sold, and converted into a granary and stable after the social revolution in the 1830′s. William Randolph Hearst purchased the Monastery in the 1928 where the building was dismantled and brought to the U.S. stone by stone of 11,000 crates which is carefully identified with the aim of rebuilding the original Spanish Monastery. However, due to the Hearst financial downfall soon after the shipment arrived, all his collections were auctioned and sold at auction and the crates were remained in the warehouse for 26 years until a year after Hearst’s death. It was purchased by two entrepreneurs as a tourist attraction. It took over 19 months to carefully put back the Monastery together. Colonel Robert Pentland, Jr, philanthropist and benefactor of many Episcopal churches, purchased the property in 1964 and presented it to the Bishop of Florida. Currently, the Church of St. Bernard de Clairvaux is a congregation of the Episcopal Diocese of Southeast Florida.

Interest-Only Mortgages Are Back

August 22nd, 2015

Interest-Only Mortgages Are Back … Should We Be Afraid?

By Christine DiGangi

 

Interest-Only Mortgages Are Back ... Should We Be Afraid? Even if you don’t know much about home loans, you’ve probably heard of interest-only mortgages, if only because they played a large role in the financial crisis of 2008 and 2009. These loans practically disappeared during the recession but have since started to make a comeback, but that’s not necessarily something to be concerned about. Interest-only mortgages are a risky product with a bad reputation, and the loans available now aren’t like the ones that made a mess of the economy several years ago.

 

What Is an Interest-Only Mortgage?

 

With a traditional 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, your monthly payments go toward both the principal balance and the interest accrued on the loan. An interest-only mortgage has a period — commonly 3, 5, 7 or 10 years — during which you’re only paying the interest accrued on that principal. If you take out a $100,000 loan and make payments on the interest accrued for 10 years, you’ll still have $100,000 to repay (plus interest) over the next 20 years of the loan. Instead of spreading that $100,000 over 30 years, you now have to pay it over 20, resulting in higher loan payments (the interest rate also resets at the end of that first period, meaning your interest rate could go up).

 

Loose underwriting standards allowed consumers with little to contribute to a down payment and less-than-great credit scores obtain interest-only mortgages before the financial crisis, said Scott Sheldon, a senior loan officer in Santa Rosa, Calif. “People tried to squeeze into a house they couldn’t afford, because they could only afford the interest-only payment,” he explained.

 

Historically, homeowners relied on the ability to refinance their homes at the end of the interest-only period said Tony Sachs, chief lending officer of online mortgage marketplace Sindeo. Home values tanked during the crisis, wiping out home equity and the option to refinance, so when borrowers’ payments increased, they couldn’t afford them and started defaulting on their loans.

Interest-Only Mortgages Are Back ... Should We Be Afraid?

Who Can Get an Interest-Only Mortgage?

 

Interest-only loans aren’t meant to be an affordability tool, Sheldon said. As the economy has improved, lenders started offering them again (within the past year or so), but they’re much different than those pre-2007 loans that everyone associates with the term “interest-only.”

 

“They’re usually geared toward higher-net-worth individuals who are interested primarily in cash flow and otherwise have a lot of assets,” Sheldon said. The interest-only loans he can originate now have stringent requirements: “We usually want 12 months of mortgage payments in the bank, in addition to the 740 credit score, in addition to the 25% down payment.”

 

He said they’re only available for jumbo loans right now (loans that exceed the limits set by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae), so it’s not the sort of thing the average consumer would be looking at.

 

“They are meant for people who have … the appetite for risk and have the ability to absorb the consequences, should they be negative,” Sachs said. “For the right person, they can be used as a successful mortgage product and financial or tax-management tool.”

 

For example, someone who is well-paid but receives large bonuses may want an interest-only loan, to preserve their take-home pay throughout the year and make large, voluntary contributions toward the principal when they receive their bonuses. It’s an alternative to paying more throughout the year with a loan amortized over 30 years. Another type of person who may want an interest-only loan is someone who could afford to pay cash for a property but uses the interest-only mortgage to claim the mortgage interest tax deduction.

 

It depends on the lender, but you’ll generally need a great credit score, a large down payment and a low debt-to-income ratio to qualify for one of these loans. Actually, those qualifications are great to have no matter what kind of home loan you want, and by checking your credit score regularly, you can make a plan to get it ready for mortgage underwriting, when you’re thinking of buying a house. You can get your credit scores for free every 30 days on Credit.com. You more than likely won’t be going after an interest-only mortgage any time soon, but it’s still important to go into the home loan process with the best financial situation you can muster.

 

Based on the tight lending standards for interest-only loans and the regulations that came after the mortgage crisis, it doesn’t seem like there’s a need to be concerned about this product’s resurgence.

 

“They are becoming more prominent because the economy is improving, the housing market is improving,” Sachs said. “They are being done in a more responsible way.”

Scariest Problem Putting Your Home at Risk—Address It Now!

August 15th, 2015

the Scariest Problem Putting Your Home at Risk—Address It Now!

This Might Be the Scariest Problem Putting Your Home at Risk—Address It Now!

By Jamie Wiebe

 

A home might have any number of scary structural problems, from mold to a cracked foundation to decaying beams. But what really gets home inspectors’ blood boiling?

 

“The three things that are going to damage your house most are water, water, and water,” says Larry Stamp, owner of Cameo Home Inspection Services in Olympia, WA.

After all, most of those “scary structural problems” stem from water. Mold? Give it up for water. Cracked foundation? There are many causes, but a main one is water. And decaying beams? Almost certainly water.

If you’re concerned about moisture-driven maladies, we recommend calling in a licensed home inspector. But if you’re not sure if water’s worth worrying about, here are some ways to see if your home’s at risk.

 

1. Wobble the toilet

Does your toilet slide from side to side? We’re not talking about just a wiggly base. What you’re looking for is actual movement along the floor, even if it’s just a few millimeters or so. That’s a very dangerous few millimeters. According to Jay Marlette, a home inspector in Berkeley, CA, that could indicate a “common, slow leak around the base of the toilet that’s damaging your subfloor.”

the Scariest Problem Putting Your Home at Risk—Address It Now!2. Examine the bathroom tiling

Check the tiles around the shower: Is there missing grout, indicated by thin, black lines? Water can easily seep into the bathroom walls and subfloors through those tiny cracks, Marlette says. Give the tiles a hard tap. The resulting sound should be high-pitched; if not, either the tiling was never properly bonded or the glue has loosened. Either way, it’s a sure sign of a current or impending leak.

3. Don’t let dirt and wood touch

Stamp, an instructor at Washington State University, teaches his students that wood and dirt (or bark and gravel) should never touch. Builders should always ensure at least 4 inches of separation between the two, if not more. Soil gets wet and stays wet; wood can’t stay wet, or else it begins to rot.

4. Evaluate your foliage

When you surround your home with too much shrubbery or trees, you might be putting your home at risk of water intrusion. If you’re considering a yard renovation, make sure to engage a qualified landscaper. If you’ve purchased a home with significant foliage, make sure you have an inspector check for adequate clearance between plants and your home—otherwise, Stamp says, it can lead to high moisture and rot damage.

5. Look at the space between doors and the floor

How much clearance is there? If your doors cut too close to the carpet, heating a closed room can turn the air moist.

Water vapor can “rot the walls from the inside out,” Stamp says. “It’s a big deal. It’s a big, huge deal.”

Plan to leave about a half-inch of clearance, depending on the bulk and height of your carpet.

the Scariest Problem Putting Your Home at Risk—Address It Now!

6. Shine a flashlight on the ceiling

Chances are good you can see the obvious brown-colored bubbles that indicate a leaky ceiling with your bare eyes. But if you’re in a newly purchased and recently painted home—or one you’re considering buying—they might not be as visible.

Marlette recommends shining a flashlight obliquely on the ceiling and looking for distorted shadows, “kind of like a welt.”

If your home doesn’t pass the water test, don’t panic: Addressing the problem immediately reduces the chance of it causing major structural damage down the line. After water, nothing irritates an inspector more than complacency.

“I inspected houses 10 years ago that are on the market again now,” Marlette says. “They didn’t do squat.”

You Could Spend More Than $9,000 Per Year in Hidden Costs & Maintenance Expenses

July 17th, 2015

You Could Spend More Than $9,000 Per Year in Hidden Costs & Maintenance Expenses

By: Alexa Fiander

 You Could Spend More Than $9,000 Per Year in Hidden Costs & Maintenance Expenses

It’s a common problem: First-time home buyers often focus solely on the sticker price of a house when deciding how much they can afford, and then are shocked by all of the other costs associated with homeownership. However, these extra or hidden costs are often the most stressful part about owning a home.

 

To help buyers better prepare, Zillow and Thumbtack identified a variety of common home expenses — both unavoidable and optional — that often get overlooked during initial budgeting, and calculated what homeowners could spend each year to cover these costs in their area. While these extra expenses might seem small, they quickly add up, costing the average U.S. homeowner more than $9,000 per year.

 

Beyond principal and interest

 

Let’s start with the unavoidable. A mortgage calculator can help you estimate your monthly mortgage payment, but if you’re only calculating principal and interest, then you could be underestimating the actual cost of homeownership. That’s because property taxes and homeowners insurance are added to the monthly payment as well. Additionally, while you pay utilities as a renter, if you’re moving into a bigger house, your heat and electric bills will likely increase.

 

Maintenance costs

 

Home maintenance is another common expense many buyers overlook. Using Thumbtack data, we identified costs for five popular home maintenance projects: housecleaning, pressure washing, yard care, carpet cleaning and gutter cleaning. It’s helpful to know how much these types of projects typically cost in your area so you can plan accordingly, even if you, like many homeowners, prefer a DIY approach for these projects (and if that’s the case, remember to budget for trips to the hardware store to buy a lawn mower or other tools).

 

Location, location, location

 

As with all things real estate, these extra costs can vary significantly by region. In Boston, homeowners can pay nearly $14,000 annually for these combined hidden costs and maintenance expenses — the highest in the markets analyzed. Compare that to Phoenix, where homeowners pay almost half ($7,550) for the same costs.

3 Strategic Moves for Competitive Home Buyers

July 9th, 2015

3 Strategic Moves for Competitive Home Buyers

Brendon Desimone

 3 Strategic Moves for Competitive Home Buyers

If you’re a prospective home buyer who has been making offers for many months without being accepted, it’s time to up your game. After all, while making lots of offers helps you learn about the market, the goal is to actually purchase a home, right?

Once you’ve found “the one” and you’re ready to get serious, it’s time to put your game face on and beat out the competition. Take comfort in knowing that most winning buyers are uncomfortable, nervous and financially stressed out at this point. It’s par for the course, but if you’re in it for the long haul, know that it will all eventually work out.

Here are three strategies for making an offer that sellers will pounce on.

Find out what’s important to the seller and give it to them

You want what the seller has, so you have to figure out exactly what they want — and then deliver.

Find out through the listing agent what their story is. Why are they selling? Have they found a home already? Are they moving out of town? Try to put yourself in their situation and imagine what you would want if you were them.

If you find out that they are in contract to purchase a home, for example, tempt them with a quick and clean sale to ease their stress. Have your inspection and appraisal done in a week, and remove all your contingencies quickly so the seller knows they have a sure thing with you.

If they need to find a new place to live, but must sell their current home first, offer them a “rent back” after the closing. This allows them to stay in their home knowing the money is in the bank, their debt relieved, and they don’t have to move twice or feel under the gun.

Make your loan a non-event

3 Strategic Moves for Competitive Home BuyersBy now you should be working with a good local mortgage professional. Hopefully, this is someone recommended by your real estate agent.

The buyer’s loan is the biggest unknown for a seller. By the time you make this offer, your mortgage professional should have your entire file in place and updated.

If you’ve done this, the only unknowns are the appraisal and the title report, which come later. Be certain that the seller knows you have gone to great lengths to get your loan lined up, and that you are a sure thing. With the input of your mortgage professional and real estate agent, make your offer non-contingent on financing. That way, you are as good as cash. To cover yourself, make sure to order and complete the appraisal early on.

Overpay for the home

For someone who has not experienced and bought a home in a hot market, this probably sounds like the worst advice. But most buyers in competitive markets end up paying top dollar once they are in the drama of a bidding war.

It’s these buyers who have been beaten out over and over that make competitive markets strong, and it’s the nature of the beast. While it’s never good advice to pay more than you should, it’s easy to understand the mentality of the buyer in this situation.

 

Work closely with your agent, determine what price would take you over the edge, and know whether or not you could have an appraisal issue. Many buyers before you have gone through this process, and you got this far for a reason.

 

Buyers in hot markets find themselves in competitive situations because they not only want what everyone else wants, but also what’s in limited supply. While we can never predict what’s going to happen, if you are in the game for the long haul and plan on financing with a 30-year fixed loan, chances are you’ll be glad you made the effort.
