January 27, 2013 CDA Mortgage Issues I purchased a condo in MD in 3/2007, Since that time the housing market tanked and the value of the condo is more than less than half of what is owed on the mortgage.

I am refinancing a property in Montgomery County, Maryland, and currently shopping for rates. The property value is 300,000, the loan amount I am requesting is 240,000. There is a mortgage balance of 192,000 (orig 210,000) and a HELOC of 36,000. The loan is to cover both these balances. Remaining proceeds would be used to cover closing costs and home improvements. The way I understand it is that, in refinancing, I will only be charged tax for "new money". When calculating "new money", how do I treat HELOC? Would I be charged tax on the difference between the new loan amount 240,000 and the total of mortgage and HELOC (228,000), and be taxed on $12,000? Or do I treat HELOC as part of "new money", and be taxed on $48,000? Thank you.
I have recently just completed chapter 7 bankruptcy a few months ago. So my credit is terrible. My soon to be wife's credit is about 720. Her income is 45,000/year and my income is 75,000/year. I have harley no revolving debt and she has about 860/month. What are our chances for being approved for a home lone in the 250-300 thousand range with our situation now. We will be able to put at least 5 percent down.
I brought a rental property in PG county Maryland recently, using the money from my home equity line of credit (HELOC). I am now trying to get a 30 year fixed loan to pay off my HELOC.
My loan officer told me I need to pay county transfer tax 1.4% and state recordation tax 0.55%.
I searched the web and found someone mentioned “Only the State Recordation Tax is charged on a refinance.” (http://www.wreathtitle.com/pre-hud-gfe-calculators/transfer-recordation-taxes).
Do I need to pay the transfer tax? Do I need to pay it every time when I refinance?
Hello, my husband and I have our property paid in full and now we are looking into a construction to perm loan in order to build a new house on the lot.

Hey Brent, I came across this webpage after searching for USDA lenders. I have researched the rurdev.org website and additional USDA websites to gain information pertaining to eligibility for a USDA loan and the area I am looking to buy and my income all fall under the current requirements. My question is the house is a foreclosure and I was not sure if that made a difference or not.
I need professional assistance with this task especially in aligning what documents are needed to get a USDA loan, etc.
I appreciate your time and any help you can offer.
My name is Mrs. Mitchell and right now we went through getting our mortgage modified and we did obtain a lawyer to handle it just trying to keep our home, but now I want us to clean up our credit, save money, pay off hospital, credit card bills. We need to get back on track with saving and not spending so much. Is there anyway you can help us with this or maybe suggest someone?
We want to do an addition to our home we have had for two years. The addition will cost slightly less than $200K. We found out from the mortgage company that we cannot use much of the equity in our addition, and we only have about $45K in equity in our current home. So, we would need a non-mortgage type loan or a construction loan??? And, if so, what is the process? And how much of a down payment would we need. Our credit is excellent. Other than mortgage and utilities, no bills. But, we want to know the process and how much down payment to save. We just wiped out our savings for a pool. Want to know how much savings to build up before approaching a bank about a loan. As you can see, we are new to this addition process.

I have been employed at the state hospital for 20 months and 16 month as a hospice chaplain. I make about 60,000 a year and have a credit score of 740.

Hi, I have a TU credit score of 794 and XP credit score of 799. I am applying for a loan of ~$60k. I could use my father as a co-signer (he also has credit scores around 790), but if it won\'t make any difference in my interest rate I\'d rather not. Is there an upper limit to the benefit of a co-signer? Should I apply alone or add him anyway in the hopes that it\'ll lower my interest rate a little more?
Brent, You seem to have a better handle on the issue than most about Bogman CDA loans. Thanks for the insights posted already. As you implied, they have been no help. I see that Maryland CDA lenders are required to be Fani/Fredi approved lenders. Will this qualify the current Bogman CDA loans to use the recent debt releif programs to refinance to another lender at the lower rates? Have you learned of any useful way out of the CDA sink hole other than abandoning the loan since they will not re-finance re-structure, or agree to a short sale?
We are ready/thinking of making an offer for a third property. We have a pre-approval letter from Quicken Loans for $75,000 We are trying to get away with the lowest out of pocket money at closing, as we don\'t want deplete all our savings. We understand the 20% down for an investment property. That is not a problem, we\'d like to cut back whatever else we can. Quoted by Quicken somewhere around $22,000 cash for closing. understand some fees are set and can not be adjusted, Points are another thing and we want to pay as few as possible. Will hopefully have an accepted offer tonight or in next few days and look forward to seeing what a local loan officer can do.
We are looking for a Hard Money lender for new construction on our house of around $180k. We own the property out-right worth at least $60k. Due to illness and medical expenses, our credit is not good, but once we sell our current home, we will have about $40k to put down on our new house. We need to know how this type of loan works. Being new construction, we will have a draw program with the builder. We would like to know if we have to borrow all of the money up front or can we borrow as the draw requires. Please get back to me asap since we may have a buyer for our house. Thanks.
Here\'s my situation: Perfect credit, only debts are car loan and mortgage. My current home is about 50k underwater and stuck at a 7% CDA rate. My fiance and I are expecting a baby the end of this year. We need more space and a better neighborhood. I\'m considering purchasing a new home then walking away from my existing home. Walking away meaning foreclosure since I don\'t think I qualify for a short sale. I could alternatively rent and maybe break even; but that\'s not something I want to risk as renters in my neighborhood could be a risk of not paying and I\'m also worried about expenses that might be coming up on the current house (roof, furnace). Foreclosure is not something I had ever considered until recently. However, I don\'t want to drop $50k of savings (which would be a loan from 401k) in order to cover a deficit from a sale of my home at less than my mortgage amount. That is a huge amount of money to me. My reasoning is although my credit will be destroyed for some years (~7 years?) I will at least still have my money in the bank/investments. And I will have already bought the new home that will suit us for many years down the road.
What do you think?
1.) Is foreclosure ever a \"good\" option?
2.) If I foreclose on a home will there be any federal or MD tax liabilities?
3.) Any other concerns?
4.) Are there other options?
Thank you so much for any advice you can provide.

I am refinancing my loan on my primary home in Montgomery County, MD. My payoff is $291,xxx and I am taking out a mortgage of $292,000 even. I was quoted an estimated transfer tax of 2014.80. Does that seem valid? I have read that the tax is based on the difference of value, not on the loan amount if it is a refi. If I go to closing, and this is just an overestimation or a miscalc, I won't be held responsible for it, will I?
My husband is a veteran, it\'s been a little over 2 years since we had a foreclosed property. Looking to find a Va loan officer to assist with a VA loan. We have 50% saved as down payment for a property of interest. We live in Fort washington area of Maryland. Please assist.
I purchased a condo in MD in 3/2007, Since that time the housing market tanked and the value of the condo is more than less than half of what is owed on the mortgage. To compound the problem, I have a CDA loan that makes refinancing, loan re-modification or applying for federal assistance programs challenging. In addition, the original loan was serviced by Chevy Chase Bank but was subsequently sold to Bogman Inc., then sold to M&T Bank about a year ago.
- I am the sole borrower on the loan, but the title is in both mine & my husband\'s names.
- The interest rate is 6.75%!
- I have not missed a payment and I am not experiencing financial hardship.
My preference is to move and get rid of the property. Obviously since I am upside-down (loan amount $190k and I received my tax accessment which stated the property value at $70k) on the mortgage, selling is a challenge. This was my first home and my plan was to move after a couple years. It\'s been over five years and I need to move.
Can you provide me with any helpful guidance or advice?
I am in the process of purchasing a $975k property. I plan to finance this property with a VA loan with around 5% down. The property is located in Washington, DC. I would like to do a major renovation of the property and have already received a $250k - $300k estimate from a contractor. I would like to receive around that amount to bridge until I can refinance the property. My realtor estimated that with the improvements made, the property should be worth around $1.45m, which would allow me to refinance the property. Do you have any loan options for me? If it is better, I can call to explain my situation. Let me know.
currently have 147K value on home and 1st mortgage amt is $110K..also have a county home repair loan o/s of $5K where home is the collateral. will this effect my rate to refinance? Is refinance better or home equity loan is better? I have refinance about 2.5 yrs ago to a 20 yr loan.
I currently have a 50k HELOC that is at the end of the draw period. I want to close it and open a new one with a different lender for the same 50k credit limit. Are there differences in closing costs for these two scenarios:
1. Close existing line with $0 balance and open new line for 50k.
2. Take all $50k out of existing line prior to closing the account so new line would assume all 50k at opening.

Hello, I had a short sale 5/2011, I purchased a home on a two year land contract and closed both homes the same day. My credit score is low at 620. I have a $46,000 balloon and the property would appraise for at least $120,000. I\\\'ve had steady employment as an RN for 25 yrs and income of 110k/year.

My husband and I are interested in buying an investment property in DC. I am a US citizen, employed with Morgan Stanley here in Dubai. My husband is an Algerian citizen, and holds a valid G4 visa - also employed at the World Bank Group here in Dubai. We both have solid credit history in the US from before we moved abroad. We both maintain accounts and credit cards in the DC area. We both have foreign-earned income, combined net pa 300k USD. We would be ready to put 25-30% into a 400k condo/property. Is this a loan you could process?
I read the requirements online for this type of loan, but I have found that the information I read and the information I received today are somewhat different. Is there a minimum credit score requirement? Also, how long does this type of refinance loan take to process and close?
Are there any lenders that are currently offering a 90% LTV on Jumbo Construction loans? Im above a 780 credit score. DTI would be just above a 45% but under 50%. Im looking to aquire a lot and construction loan at one settlement. Aqusition + Construction will be around $560-$575K. Thanks!
How can I get a loan to finish a rehab project without hiring a contractor? I am doing the rehab work myself and ran short of funds to finish it as I was using personal funds. This is in Selma, IN. 47383
Does anyone offer a 90% LTV for a contruction loan? I have found several lots (80K -100K) that I am interested in, and talked to a builder who can build what I would like for approx $125 per sq ft. Total Cost would be approximately $250,000 to $300,000. I have enough for 10% down, and some funds for closing cost. But it seems like everyone wants 80% LTV. That with closing cost would be around 70K. Such a bummer, because I strongly feel I can build a better quality new home, for less than most the overpriced junk out there. By the way I have been looking in Ann Arundel and Howard Co. mainly, but also considering parts of Prince Georges Co. The cost of the home would be only about 2 to 2 1/2 times my income, I just don\'t have that much cash lying around. Any help?
I am applying for a mortgage on a condoin DC, have excellent credit and income, plus am putting 20 percent down. I\'m looking for a lender who doesn\'t require additional cash reserves.

I am in the process of purchasing an investment Condo unit in Gaithersburg MD. Unfortunately, the condo firm has currently above 15% delinquency rate.

I have already qualified for a VA loan of up to $270,000.... I am interested in a home that is a short sale and am worried that it will not pass the VA inspection. I am offering $180,000.... the bank may counter... but I don\'t think so. It would be great to get a rehab loan instead... but I do not know how that would work... I would like to have an additional $70,000... Is that possible? Also, I have very little money for a down payment... Mike.
P.S. The waiting is killing me.

Hi Brent, I have seen your posts a number of times in my research. My fiancee lives in MD and was talked into a CDA loan a number of years ago. At this point the house may be 100k underwater so we have no hope of refinance that I know of. I own a home and work in VA. We thought we could just rent her house in MD but no such luck due to the restrictive loan program. I noticed you had a few ideas for other people in similar situations. I look forward to any help you can provide. Best, Evan Lyons
MY HUSBAND HAS A MIDDLE SCORE OF 580 WE ARE LOOKING TO GETA LOAN WITH THAT CREDIT SCORE IS THIS POSIBLE HERE IN MARYALND. WE HAVE TRY MANY PEOPLE AND EVERYONE SAIDS WE NEED AT LEAST A 620 THANK PLEASE LET ME NOW
Hello. I was recently reading your blog, looking for some information on CDA type loans, refinancing when underwater etc.
I'm wondering if you have any information that could help someone in my situation...
I bought my home in Baltimore City MD in 11/2007. It is my first home and was purchased through CDA. My loan rate is 7% and is fixed through that program.
I wasn't expecting to stay in my home for more than a few years so the rate did not matter to me at the time. Then everything happened with the housing market and I'm not going to be able to sell my home any time soon.
I'm looking to improve my situation...a lower rate, a possible adjustment of principal if that's possible. Primarily, I just want a lower rate. A move from 7% to something close to the current market rate should save me a couple hundred a month.
I'm sort of stuck, as far as I can tell. My loan amount is almost 120k and I think my house is probably worth somewhere around 80k or even less...it's hard to tell as nothing is selling in my area except the occasional foreclosed home. The federal programs I've seen can not help me as I'm not Fannie or Freddie backed.
I have excellent credit and employment history. I'm not behind on my mortgage. I bought a modest home that I could afford, but things have gotten a little tighter over the years with additional expenses. I just want to know if there's anything out there for someone in my situation to help with principal adjustment or refi.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
Hello I just received my approval through the HPAP program. I am now in need of a lender who is willing to work with me through this process. Are there particular lenders who work more exclusivly with this program.
I’m EU citizen and I leave in London.
I only got a temporary job, but I want to buy a house, which I’ll be renting and paying off the mortgage. Is it possible to get mortgage from somewhere, if i only put down 10% deposit?
My bank wasn’t really helpful, they said I need a permanent job and I can’t get a mortgage otherwise.
Is it possible to get a mortgage and buy a home without a down payment. It would be my first home. I dont have perfect credit. The thing is, is i dont even know where to start. I have epilepsy and have a large (untrained) dog that i use for a service dog. Im sick of the whole trailer park and apartment scene and its harder than heck to find somewhere to live that will let me have a large dog. Somehow she knows that im going to have a seizure before i do. Now that im driving again it is vital that i have her. She is a necessity not a luxury. Im desperate to own my own home. Ive heard that there are grants out there for people like me. However i have no knowledge on how to access the paperwork to apply for these. Do you have any info on that? Yours tips would be greatly appreciated.
Hi I was wondering if there is any loan out for a construction to permanent mortgage. We have 1 and 1/2 arce of land and we really want to build. The land is free and clear. Not sure of the credit scores but they are not in the 700's. I also wanted to know if there FHA loans for construction as well Thanks.
I live in Mitchell, SD. I currently have owned my home for about a year and a half. I recently have been looking elsewhere career wise, and if I find a job soon I would be moving. Would it be smarter to sell my house or rent-out? Would it hurt my credit to sell already? How much would I owe the bank if I sold already?
Any information on the matter would be great
I am in the military and am stationed at Fort Stewart, GA. I am being moved back to Mississippi in the summer. I own a home in Richmond Hill, GA that is under contract to be sold to a buyer with a contingency that he sells his home, (which has been a rental property for the last 7 months. His bank says that he will be approved for a my home regardless of a sell in 5 more months. 12 month rental is their policy) Now I have found a great deal on a home in Mississippi. (buying price is 234,000 with a current appraisal of 360,000. It has a seperate guest house that has been rented out for the past 2 years at 650/monthly. But I am having trouble getting a loan for it becasue I have not closed on mine in Georgia yet. I do not want to miss out on this house. Please give some advice to qualify for this home. My credit score is 780.
My credit score is pretty good-high 700\\\\\\\'s. My husbands is mid 600\\\\\\\'s. We have been working on improving his score, i added him to some of my good credit cards, he is paying off medical debt and last week he got a $1000 loan from the bank to show payment history for a personal loan. He does have a released tax lein from a few years ago on his report as well as some late payments. We plan to sell our current home in the next few months which i have financed on my own and want to buy a new home later this year jointly so we can use both our income on the loan. Chase informed me i can add him to the current home loan, if he gets approved. Should we send in an application for him to be added to the current loan if we plan on selling this home in the next few months? Would the benefits of adding him right before we sell be greater than the hit his score will take just by being ran for a mortgage and then ran again for a mortgage later this year when we buy a new home?

Hi, We are considering purchasing a foreclosure in annapolis MD. Purchase price $630k. We are above the conforming rate of $560 and still require money to renovate. Do you have options that include renovation? We have excellent credit. We are looking to put 10% down. thanks, Melissa Wittke
I live in VA and in the process of refinancing my current mortgage. Nothing on the loan will change as far as owners or co-signers. My GFE states in Block #8 that I am required to pay a transfer tax. The company I'm going through said I may or may not have to pay it, that it was up to the state I live in. Do you know if VA requires this tax for a refinance?
Hello, we will be in the market to refinance but we need to finish the construction on our property now. We had a fire back in 2010 and we were underinsuraned. We are not behind on our payment but we have ran out of money to complete the contruction. We are about $55,000 short of completing the project. The least we would need is $45,000. I can send you copies of some of the receipts that we have already purchased.

We have an investment condo on Brickell in Miami. Bought in 2006, 20% down on a 40 year old interest only loan through BoA Fanny Mae at a 6% interest rate.
The purchase price was 285000, current values are under 200000.
Our tenant pays 1400 which covers the mortgage but not the $323 HOA monthly fee.
We would like to refinance but BoA and Quickens wont do it as they say that Fanny Mae has a blockade on condo refinance. What can we do in order to get a shorter loan at a much lower interest rate? Are there any other lenders that would be interested?
We are considering building a house and are interested in the construction to permanent loan option. Are there any lenders that don't require at least 20% down payment for these loans? Our income and credit scores are both very good, but it would take us a while to save up 20% for a down payment. We're hoping to find a lender that only requires a 5% down payment. Thanks for your time!
Hi, I am buying a new construction home in Maryland, builder had agreed to give certain amount to closing cost. Now I am in final stage of settling and looking at the HUD statement I see they have included the State Transfer taxes that seller pays for the First time home buyers in the credit towards closing that we had agreed upon, is that right? After some research I learned the seller pays the state transfer taxes for first time home buyers in maryland, so can the builder claim this money towards the credit they had promised? Please help me , asap !!!

Hello! My hubby and I are looking to build our dream home in Harford County MD. We have great credit and a great income. We just haven\'t saved money for a down payment. We have our VA certificate and were really hoping to find a bank that would allow us a no down payment construction loan. I know it is a long shot but if this isn\'t possible maybe some other ideas to minimize the out of pocket expenses???
If I want to refinance a property, what criteria can be used to determine or verify that it is my primary residence. Also, any advise on selecting which lenders to talk to? Historically, I\'ve stuck with the bank that I initially had the loan with (assuming it would be less hassle) and am feeling like it\'s time to look elsewhere, but no idea where to start? Don\'t want to talk to too many lenders if I can help it, but wondering if I might find better terms and a better fit by going elsewhere. Oh, my whole goal is to lower monthly costs. thanks!

We are thinking about locking tomorrow so quick question. Is it better to keep money in bank accounts or throw it all at credit card? My husband has a high balance on his, Like 9200 with a 9500 limit. Its costing us a point with the chip loan we are using. I could throw like 500 now and next wk on it But would that help his credit enough to make a difference? My score is 722 his is 710. We are scheduled to close in late feb. also, the theory of buying down the rate...that something to consider if we are only staying in the house for less than 5 yrs?
My credit score is in the 500s (as the result of acquiring medical debt while a new employee with no benefits and pay). I am now making $72,500k annually, have job security and I receive rent on an investment property that I own free & clear. Also, I don\\\'t have a lot of debt - my mortgage & $900 credit card balance. My car, which is paid off, requires approximately 3k in repairs and I need about $2,500 in home repairs. I need to get the home repairs so that I can rent it out to Johns Hopkins Hospital Residents/Graduate Students, etc. My credit union only looked at my credit score; not my monthly rental. I would like to know if you service people with similar circumstances. Thank You

My husband and I are planning to buy our first home. We will be using his credit and income. There are nine collection accounts on his credit report that we are going to pay off in the next couple of days. That will leave 2 collections that will remain on his credit report until we pay them in a few months. I tried to get a pay for delete with the collection agencies but they said no. These accounts will be paid in full. Will this better our chance to get approved for a loan? He makes a decent income. We have a car loan and 2 credit cards. We got a small personal loan from our bank to pay for the debts. Any advice will be appreciated.

Hello. I am in the process of trying to buy a house in DE. I already found a house, and am under contract. The agreed sale price is $115,000. The previous mortgage company I was dealing with screwed me, after I already put money up for inspections and attorneys. My closing date is scheduled for 12/15. I have a credit score in the 635-645 range, which I was told is more then enough for a FHA loan. Can Choice Finance help me with my situation, and would we be able to meet my closing date. I already changed closing dates once.
My husband and I are looking to relocate to Delaware in late January to early February; We are currently living in Ohio. We would love to purchase a home rather than rent when we do move. We would be only putting the home in my husband's name due to my bad credit history. Now, his credit isn't where is should be either and that is where my main question lies. As of right now his highest credit score is 570. I have read that we would need at least a 640 to purchase a home. Can a loan officer help show us what we can do to help raise his score to get it where it needs to be or do we need to go to a credit agency? Also, are there loans that we can get with is low credit score? Any help on this would be great. Thanks
I have a VA 4.74% VA loan with a bal. of 186,400. In Feb. 2010 I filed Ch 7 BK and was discharged in July 2010. My credit score is about 625 and my house is underwater at $159,000 value according to the agent who sold these properties. Since I went BK, Citimortgage is not not reporting my payments and basically wrote off the loan. My attorney failed to get the reaffirmation form and that's why my credit report shows 0 bal. due and 0 payments since Feb. 2010. Should I refi and if so can I avoid increasing my bal. other than by adding the VA funding fee which I know I have to pay?

My mortgage was $1,657.73 a month and that includes my insurances and taxes paid out of it as I am on the road all the time working and racing. Fannie Mae a year ago bought the mortgage on October 1st, 2010. I received my monthly bill and it now has gone up to $1,893.52. I checked with the town of Waxhaw, NC and my taxes have not gone up and also with Union County and those taxes have not gone up. My home insurance went up $100.00 more. My Escrow is showing now from $292.00 to $593.00 a month. I am a bit puzzled here. Serterus which handles the collecting the mortgage says that is because they under estimated escrow projection and had to raise it. I have never received a letter are any intent of this. Is this legal and should I look to re-finance my home? The County Tax Office said something does not sound right.
