Why invest in Multifamily?

Click on link to go and read.. chat.njfind.com * Taxtips.Njfind.com * will.njfind.com *freestock.njfind.com * atyourhelp.njfind.com *domain.njfind.com * review.njfind.com *newagent.njfind.com 

Multifamily properties are buildings with more than one unit.

A multifamily could be as small as two units in a duplex or as big as thousands of units in a large apartment complex. Few people ever buy a multifamily to live in

Multifamily classification is generally split into two categories: small and large.

  • Small multifamily properties are any properties that contain two, three, or four units.
  • Large multifamily properties, therefore, are those with five or more units.

Smaller multifamily properties are considered “residential” to most lenders and are thus seen as no different from an SFR. Large multifamily, however, is considered commercial real estate, and the rules change drastically.

While the value of a residential property (single family or small multifamily) is determined by what the similar house down the street sold for, value on commercial property is largely determined by comparing the ROI one would achieve with that of other commercial properties down the street

Pros of Multifamily Investing

More Cash Flow Possibilities

If purchased right, multifamily properties have a likelihood of producing positive cash flow from day one. In addition, rents can be increased a small amount for each unit or expenses decreased and the ripple effect of those changes can cause huge increases in cash flow.

One Loan, Multiple Units

This is a huge benefit of investing in multifamily properties: there are fewer loans to obtain!

One Insurance Policy

When you invest in a multifamily property, you have one insurance policy on it. It’s so much easier to keep track of and manage!

Math Over Emotion

When investing in multifamily units, You are able to separate emotion from the transaction much more easily than with a single-family home. Multifamily is all about the math, the numbers!

Business, Not Hobby

Multifamily properties are designed for investors to own and management companies to run; thus, the cost of hiring such a management company is often figured into the cost of owning the property, leading to less hands-on-management by you.

Income Valuation

Multifamily units with more than five units are not valued the same way as SFRs.  Commercial properties, are valued based on the ROI they give their owners.

We rely on the cap rate to base value on. Small changes to the income can make drastic swings to the value of the property, and a savvy investor can use this to their advantage to supercharge the wealth building process.

Less Competition From Homeowners

When shopping for a single-family home, an investor is competing against tens of thousands of others looking for a home. Most of this competition is in the form of non-investors who buy property for way too much money because the front porch is “so cute” or the backyard is “perfect for Fido!” This can make competition much more difficult, because you are playing the game with a different objective! Instead, when you buy multifamily properties, you are competing with other investors, which means there is far less competition.

Cons of Multifamily Investing

More Expensive

First, multifamily properties typically cost much more to buy than a single-family house. This can be a barrier to entry for many people trying to get started, so multifamily is often not considered until much later in one’s investment career. That said, smaller multifamily properties have some lower down payment financing options, and larger multifamily properties often include raising money from other people.

More Management Intensive

Multifamily tenants cause more headaches than single-family tenants. They are generally more “transitional” and thus have much more drama in their lives. Multifamily properties are often managed by third parties, so the owner doesn’t need to be very involved in the management drama.

More Savvy Competition

Although there is less competition from homeowners when investing in multifamily properties, the folks you are competing against are far more sophisticated than the average homeowner. They can spot a deal just like you can and generally have a lot more capital with which to buy those deals.

More Complicated

Most people can easily wrap their heads around a single-family investment property, but the more units in a property (and the more expensive that property is), the more complicated it all becomes. Suddenly, you are dealing with 20 moving parts rather than just two or three.

Fewer to Choose From

Depending on where you live, there may be a lack of available multifamily properties from which to choose. While single-family homes are plentiful across the world, multifamily properties may be more sparse in your location.

Government Regulations

Finally, when you invest in multifamily properties and raise money from others to fund it, you enter a whole new world of government regulations that dictate what you can and cannot do while raising that money. If you do it wrong, you might end up wearing an orange jumpsuit and earning $1.38 an hour serving soup to other white-collar inmates.

So, Should You Invest in Multifamily?

There is never one right path, but there may be a right path for you.

As long as you are willing to do the work and learn to run the numbers on either one, you can pursue both and buy whatever crosses your radar first.

Are you? Let me know in the comments below this post! Why do you want to invest in multifamily? Or why not?  

Remember, your comments will help others who read, so let’s hear your thoughts!

30-Year Mortgage Rates Near All-Time Low

Mortgage rates for 30, 15, ARM. Full information at http://www.freddiemac.com/pmms/

© REALTOR® MAGAZINE

Mortgage rates dropped for the third consecutive week, inching closer to the lowest averages ever on record. “Refinance activity remains high, but home purchase demand is weak due to economic tightening,” says Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “While new monthly economic data are driving markets lower this week, they are a lagging indicator and should be priced in already. Real-time daily economic activity metrics suggest that the economy will likely not decline much further. Going forward, the key question is no longer the depth of economic contraction but the duration.”

Freddie Mac reports the following averages with mortgage rates nationwide for the week ending April 16:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.31%, with an average 0.7 point, falling from last week’s 3.33% average. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.17%.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 2.80%, with an average 0.7 point, rising from last week’s 2.77% average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 3.62%.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 3.34%, with an average 0.3 point, dropping from last week’s 3.40% average. A year ago, 5-year ARMs averaged 3.78%.

Average commitment rates are reported along with average fees and points to reflect the total upfront cost of obtaining the mortgage.

Legal and Structuring Aspects of Multifamily Syndication

Why we do syndication in MultiFamily?

If deal is big then better to syndicate but if you can invest and buy yourself then go for it

Sponsor is Syndicator and other person is GP or General person (sponsor)

GP is one who find and will manage deal

Limited Partners or limited raise funds and silent and one of these could be guarantor. Also called investors

Lender also can be LP

Lender will require GP to raise 20% -30% of cost of investment

If its your first time then this jargon should be aware to you.

What is Water fall or liquidation sale?

When you decide to join multifamily deal and when you decide to sell and make profit and distribute profits to investors then this is called water fall (as water fall hits rocks). All investors will get there first investment back and then all profits split. 20% goes to gp for doing deal and 80% split prorate to investors based on there investment on all level.

GP can be made of multiple person or groups depending upon there expertise of knowledge

Water fall can have multiple levels. It can also asset management fee.

There’s always room to customize deal

In mulitfamily also called preferred returns. In Multifamily, it can not be new construction. Its usually old that need to be rehab or refurbished  and after running for few years and then you can sell.

So till we time we sell, we give investors some interest like 6% so something extra return on investment . Its not always a case but something to know.

Legal structure is Limited partners GP is general partner and LP are lps of entities

LLC is recommended to most clients. In this structure. GP is called Manager and LPS are called members

Why it is better to buy a home  instead of renting one!

Why it is better to buy a home  instead of renting one!

Listed here are 3 major reasons why you should consider buying a home…

  1. Cost:
    Buying a home is actually less expensive than renting!  Renting a home for $2,000/mo for 5 years is $2,000/mo x 5 years x 12 months/year = $120,000 But buying a home for the same $2,000/mo for 5 years is less than $120,000!
  2. When you buy a home the government gives you a tax deduction for the mortgage interest that you pay.Lets just assume that your tax deduction equals only $8,000/year. That means you get $8000/mo x 5 years =$40,000.That means you can get $40,000 cash when you buy your home over the next 5 years. So you will pay $120,000 towards housing payments over the next 5 years but if you own a home you will get $40,000 cash back. This means you only spend $80,000 for housing over the same 5 years which is only $1333/month!
  3. Equity:The owner of the home is entitled to the equity in the home. Equity is the difference between how much the house is worth and how much you owe. (If a house is worth $200,000 and you owe $150,000 then the equity is $50,000.) If you are renting then the landlord is the owner and they get to keep the equity in the home.

  4. When you buy a home you have a mortgage payment each month. Generally, each payment has a principle amount, an interest amount, property taxes and hazard insurance. The principle amount of the payment reduces the amount that you owe on the property.
  5. Every time there is a repair on the home, if done correctly, that repair can increase the value of your home because it will be worth more. If you upgrade old windows, replace the shingles on the roof or remodel the kitchen, that will make your home worth more money. When you own a home you have to pay for these repairs. When you rent, the landlord must pay for these repairs but they don’t mind because it makes the home worth more money!
  6. Making regular payments on a home mortgage will increase your credit score. Better credit means better financing for your next home purchase, a refinance of the first home and for a vehicle purchase or any other credit purchases saving you thousands of dollars in interest over the years to come.
  7. With interest rates dropping below 3.5% (30 year fixed rate as of 10/30/19) you could $15000 for every 1% interest you save , in span of 30 years, in loan of $300k. Check here for more details.
  8. Requirements:The qualifications for buying a home are nearly the same qualifications for renting a home. You need to have okay credit, a deposit and a decent job.If you have a credit score of 580 (or better) then you can qualify for a FHA loan. A 580 FICO score is not considered good credit and may even be low enough to prevent you from renting. But it is a good enough credit score to buy a small home. If you have better credit then you can qualify for better interest rates with other types of loans.
  9. The deposit for a house purchase with an FHA loan is 3 % of the purchase price. This amount is nearly the same as first & last months rent and a security deposit. One of the little known bonuses for buying a house is that you essentially get the first month FREE! The reason is because the homes mortgage interest is charged at the end of the month while rent is charged at the beginning of each month.

  10. Having a decent job is essential for qualifying for any type of housing. Generally you need to have been in the same line of work for the previous 2 years to show stability in employment. You also need to be making at least 3-4 times your payment on a monthly basis

How Much Does a 1% Interest Rate Drop Save on a 15-Year or 30 year Fixed Mortgage?

Getting the best possible interest rate on your mortgage can ultimately save you thousands of dollars. Knowing how different interest rates affect your monthly payment can prove an invaluable tool when making a decision, whether you are seeking a new mortgage or refinancing an existing one.

Tip> 1% interest rate drop could save you whopping $60,276.16 in $300000 loan in 30 years . Check your at our calculator https://njfind.com/financial-calculators

Mortgages and Interest Rates

When you purchase a 15-year fixed-rate or 30 year fixed rate mortgage, the interest rate will stay the same for the entire life of the loan. Your monthly payment is based on the interest rate you negotiate with your lender and is structured to pay off your mortgage by the end of the 15-year period or 30 year period resp. 15 year is typically the shortest fixed-rate period offered by lenders and will allow you to pay off your mortgage faster and pay less interest than with a longer term loan. However, the shorter term means your monthly payment will be higher, so consider whether you can afford it. Also when you take 30 year fixed, you are stretching your dollar which is depreciating in years or what dollar can buy today, will be lot less in 30 years.

So as per calculator,

loan amount in $ Interest % # of years Monthly Payment: Number of Payments: Total Payments: Total Interest: saving
per month saving
300000 4 30 $1,432.25 360 $515,608.52 $215,608.52 0 0
300000 3 30 $1,264.81 360 $455,332.36 $155,332.36 $60,276.16 $167.43
300000 4 15 $2,219.06 180 $399,431.48 $99,431.48 0 0
300000 3 15 $2,071.74 180 $372,914.09 $72,914.09 $26,517.39 $147.32

Home values have more than doubled in the New Jersey since 1970

As per Article in Business Insider https://www.businessinsider.com/home-value-home-price-change-in-50-years-every-state-2018-12

home value increased in new jersey have increased or doubled in New Jersey since 1970.

As per US Census Bureau, which provides a table showing median home values from previous decades in each state and the District of Columbia. We compared the median home value in 1970, adjusted for inflation to 2017 dollars using the Consumer Price Index, to the median home value in 2017, according to the Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, and calculated the percentage change.

Note that median means that half of the homes are valued above that number and half below. This data technically covers the past 47 years, but as the US Census Bureau’s table provided information on a decade basis, it’s the closest information available to the past 50 years.

In 1970, the national median home value adjusted for inflation was $107,291; in 2017, it’s $217,600 — that’s a 103% increase. In fact, more than half of all US States (including Washington, DC) have seen a median home value increase of more than 100%.”

In New Jersey Cost of a home in 1970: $147,683 v/s Cost of a home in 2017: $334,900. This means its Percentage change from 1970 to 2017: 127% or price almost more than doubled. 

Imagine if you or your parents renting than what they lost? They lost equity, tax refund, appreciation credit (see example above) , and most important, home.. that yours with your memories.

Why its make sense to Go solar: top 10 benefits of solar energy




There are many reasons why homeowners go solar, but improving the environment and cutting energy costs are the most common. Many people are aware that solar is a great home efficiency upgrade and are eager to reduce their carbon footprint while also improving property value.

Whether your motivations for going solar are economic, environmental, or personal, this sizable list of solar power benefits will have something for everyone. Here are the top ten reasons why solar energy is good for your home and more popular than ever in the United States.

1. Drastically reduce or even eliminate your electric bills

Whether you’re a homeowner, business, or nonprofit, electricity costs can make up a large portion of your monthly expenses. With a solar panel system, you’ll generate free power for your system’s entire 25+ year lifecycle. Even if you don’t produce 100 percent of the energy you consume, solar will reduce your utility bills and you’ll still save a lot of money.

2. Earn a great return on your investment
Solar panels aren’t an expense – they’re one of the best ways to invest, with returns rivaling those of more traditional investments like stocks and bonds. Thanks to substantial electricity bill savings, the average American homeowner pays off their solar panel system in seven to eight years and sees an ROI of 20 percent or more.

3. Protect against rising energy costs
One of the most clear cut benefits of solar panels is the ability to hedge utility prices. In the past ten years, residential electricity prices have gone up by an average of three percent annually. By investing in a solar energy system now, you can fix your electricity rate and protect against unpredictable increases in electricity costs. If you’re a business or homeowner with fluctuating cash flow, going solar also helps you better forecast and manage your expenses.

4. Increase your property value
Multiple studies have found that homes equipped with solar energy systems have higher property values and sell more quickly than non-solar homes. Appraisers are increasingly taking solar installations into consideration as they value homes at the time of a sale, and as home buyers become more educated about solar, demand for properties equipped with solar panel systems will continue to grow.

5. Boost U.S. energy independence
The sun is a near-infinite source o

f energy and a key component of achieving energy independence in the United States. By increasing our capacity to generate electricity from the sun, we can also insulate our country from price fluctuations in global energy markets.

6.

Create jobs and help your local economy
According to The Solar Foundation, the solar industry adds jobs many times faster than the overall U.S. economy. This growth is expected to continue. Because solar-related jobs tend to be higher paying and cannot be outsourced, they are a significant contributor to the U.S. economy.

7. Protect the environment
Solar is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Buildings are responsible for 38 percent of all carbon emissions in the U.S., and going solar can significantly decrease that number. A typical residential solar panel system will eliminate three to four tons of carbon emissions each year—the equivalent of planting over 100 trees annually.

8. Demonstrate your commitment to sustainability
Sustainability and corporate social responsibility are important components of an organization’s culture and values. They also produce bottom line results. Increasingly, consumers and communities are recognizing and rewarding businesses that choose to operate responsibly. Businesses are finding that “green” credentials are a powerful driver of consumer purchasing decisions, creating goodwill and improving business results.

9. Increase employee morale
Just like consumers, employees have a demonstrated appreciation for their employers’ commitment to operating responsibility. Employees share in the success and contributions of their organizations. Companies that care about their community and environment tend to have lower turnover rates, more engaged employees, and higher levels of morale.

10. Stay competitive
Companies quickly are realizing the social and economic benefits of adopting solar power. As early adopters pull ahead of the competition, many companies are exploring solar power as a way to keep up.

Legal Advise from Attorney

Listen some Legal Videos


Posted on October 15, 2019 at 4:54 pm
Anil Aggarwal | Posted in Buyers |

As Realtor® I highly recommend and suggest clients to get Home Owners Title Insurance

Goal is MAKE SURE ALL OF MY CLIENTS ARE PROTECTED

As Realtor®, so I know that buying a home can be overwhelming for my clients. Homebuyers can feel confused and frustrated by the mounds of paperwork they have to sign. Plus, the fees associated with closing can sometimes be overwhelming even to an
experienced buyer.
Owner’s title insurance is one of those items often misunderstood by homebuyers at
closing, yet its value is tremendous. As an important advisor to my clients, I am in
a position to help homebuyers understand the value of owner’s title insurance and the
dangers that can be incurred without it.

HOW IT PROTECTS
Say, for example, client recently purchased a new home from a builder, but the builder failed to pay the roofer. Wanting
to be paid, the roofer filed a lien against the property. Without owner’s title insurance, my client would be responsible for paying
this existing debt. This is just one example of how owner’s title insurance protects homebuyers from various significant risks.

ENDURING VALUE
The good news is that owner’s title insurance protects homebuyers legally and
financially, as long as they own their home. For a low, one-time fee, homebuyers can restnassured, knowing they are protected against
existing debts or claims to their property.

What is FICO Score

The most common type of credit score is the

, which was developed by Fair, Isaac and Company. FICO is not the only credit scoring company, but is the score used most widely. Lenders usually base your interest rate on some variation of a FICO score, which can range from 300 to 850. As with all credit scores, the higher your FICO score, the lower the interest rate lenders will charge you.

While you can obtain a copy of your credit report for free at www.annualcreditreport.com, the score is separate and is not free. You can purchase a copy of your FICO credit score from their website, which is www.myfico.com or purchase credit scores from Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. Note that not every credit bureau uses the same range and formula for calculating a credit score – there are competing credit score “products” on the market. An example is a Vantage Score, developed by Experian. Another key point — getting a copy of your own credit report and credit score does not affect your credit score. Many people are hesitant to obtain their own reports because they fear a negative mark.

The FICO Score in Detail

FICO Scores are calculated from a lot of different credit data in your credit report. This data can be grouped into five categories as outlined to the right. The percentages in the chart reflect how important each of the categories is in determining your FICO score.

Please note that:

•A FICO score takes into consideration all of these categories of information, not just one or two. No one piece of information or factor alone will determine your score.

•Your FICO score only looks at information in your credit report. However, lenders look at many things when making a credit decision including your income, how long you have worked at your present job and the kind of credit you are requesting.

•Your score considers both positive and negative information in your credit report. Late payments will lower your score, but establishing or re- establishing a good pattern of making payments on time will raise your FICO credit score.

Improving a Score

Make Your Payments on Time

The single most important thing you can do to keep your score high, or improve your score, is to make all your payments on time. Payment history is the largest factor that is used to determine your credit score. Payments that are 30 days or more past due will show up on your credit report and negatively impact your score. These negative marks generally stay on your report for seven years.

Keep Your Total Debt Load Manageable

With the second largest factor of your credit score being the total amount you owe, it is important to keep borrowing and total credit usage under control. If you currently have a significant amount of outstanding debt, your priority should be to stop borrowing and work toward lowering the balance. This isn’t always easy, but the only way to improve your overall debt situation is to stop borrowing or using credit cards and continue to make timely payments that reduce your balance.

In addition, you want to consider how much of your available credit is utilized. For example, having many credit cards that are maxed out, or very close to their limits, will negatively impact your score. Two credit cards with a $5,000 limit and a $1,000 balance on each will look much better than a single card with a $2,500 limit and a $2,000 balance.

Maintain Existing Accounts

Length of credit history is another important credit score factor, so it can be to your advantage to keep older accounts which are in good standing open. While you want to keep the total number of accounts manageable, sometimes it can hurt your score more to close an old account than to keep it open.

Be Careful When Opening New Accounts

While new credit is the least important factor in your score, it is still an important issue to consider. When you are shopping for a new loan or credit card, do your shopping in a relatively short amount of time. You don’t want to have your report show that you are constantly looking for new credit. You also don’t want to open credit accounts you don’t intend to use much. It may be tempting to get that additional 10% off when you open that new retail store card, but the little bit of money you save may be insignificant when multiple new accounts actually lower your credit score.

Person finds old bills coins and lot more from his grand parents home-while cleaning

It Had Been Empty For Years

Evilenglish’s grandparents’ farmhouse hadn’t been lived in since 1997, so you can only imagine how dusty it was… Evilenglish was planning on selling the property, but before he could even think about putting it up for sale. He had a huge clean-up task on his hands. No one wants to live in a dusty, dirty house! Evilenglish first noticed something interesting… There was a carpet on the floor instead of floorboards…when we removed carpet , he found a giant concrete safe was underneath the carpet. Inside safe, there was safe with tens of thousands of dollars. “Just so you know anything from 1964 or older is 90% silver worth about 20 times face value of the coin,” he revealed on Reddit.

So next time when you buy home and see its need cleaning, think of this and get motivated.. It might be your door key to get rich

Help with Flood Insurance and Disclosures

Help with Flood Insurance and Disclosures Flood-related disclosures can generate a deluge of legal and ethical questions for Realtors. What needs to be disclosed? How should you advise sellers? What should you tell buyers about flood risk and insurance? In this video, NAR Associate Counsel Deanne Rymarowicz answers these questions.

 

Flooding is the most common and costly natural disaster in the U.S., causing more than 1 trillion dollars in damage to crops and property from 2000 to 2018, and that number keeps rising.

As a real estate professional, flooding can also impact your business. Flooding is considered a material fact to a real estate transaction, and failure to disclosure flood damage can result in liability. In addition, it’s important to counsel buyers about the need and availability of flood insurance.

State laws on flood disclosures vary, so it’s crucial to understand your obligations in the state where you practice real estate. In general, a broker or agent must disclose the following facts when they have actual knowledge:

  • that a property is in an area where flood insurance is required;
  • that flood insurance was required in past;
  • that the property is located in an area that has flooded in the past;
  • and that the property is located in an area subject to flood risk that may cause many or most owners to purchase flood insurance.

In addition to state law, REALTORS® are obligated to disclose flood damage under the REALTOR® Code of Ethics. While REALTORS® must disclose reasonably apparent adverse facts, this duty does not obligate REALTORS® to discover latent or hidden defects in a property.

In a recent Texas case, Calhoun v. I-20 Team Real Estate, LLC, an appellate court ruled that a buyer’s agent’s team could be held liable for failing to advise a buyer that additional disclosure from the seller was necessary. While the seller’s disclosure form disclosed that the home had experienced past flood damage, Texas law requires further explanation for any affirmative disclosure. Here, the Seller’s form failed to provide any such explanation, and failed to answer other required questions, including improper drainage; whether the seller had flood insurance; and whether the property is located in a hundred-year flood plain or a floodway. Shortly after purchasing the property, the buyers discovered improper drainage, and that the property had a long history of flooding.

To avoid liability, and to protect your clients:

  1. Know your state’s disclosure laws to understand your obligation to disclose pertinent facts. As a starting point, check out NAR’s state-by-state flood disclosure survey available on NAR.realtor.
  2. Don’t conceal past flooding or water damage. If a seller asks you to conceal those facts, remember you still have a duty to disclose, so be sure to consult with your broker and legal counsel.
  3. Listing agents should ensure a seller’s disclosure form is fully completed, and when representing the buyer, be sure to notify your client of any incomplete disclosure requirements and request follow-up from the seller.

Now let’s talk about flood insurance. Keep in mind that a property does not have to be near water to flood. Heavy rain, rising sea and river levels, melting snow, drainage system backups, and broken water mains can all cause flooding. In fact, 25 percent of flood insurance claims occur in low or moderate risk areas. Flood damage is excluded under standard home owner insurance policies, but you don’t have to be in a high risk flood zone to obtain flood insurance. Flood insurance is available from the National Flood Insurance Program and many private insurers.

So, when counseling buyers about flood insurance:

  1. Remember that flooding can happen anywhere. Recommend that buyers to do their own due diligence, but avoid telling buyers that flood insurance isn’t required or advisable.
  2. Provide buyers with a list of reliable third-party resources about the importance of flood insurance, including the floodsmart.gov(link is external) website.
  3. And, advise buyers to speak with their insurance agent and mortgage lender to determine whether flood insurance is required for the property.

Be sure to check out the additional resources linked below this video. Thanks for watching this episode of Window to the Law!

Not All Debts are Considered Equal

When it comes to looking at money you owe, not all debt is created equal. While there are many shades of gray in life, there is absolutely good debt and bad debt. And the difference matters, whether you’re taking financial steps to buy a home or prepare for retirement. Let’s take a look at some of the distinctions between them.

Good Debt

In a nutshell, a good debt is one that can have a clear benefit to you, such as a long-term investment, even if the purchase isn’t a tangible item you can touch. Here are a few examples:

  • Mortgage – This may be the ultimate in good debt. Not only can buying a home be a smart decision now, the equity being built up typically improves your financial situation in the future. And there can be an immediate payoff – the interest may be tax deductible, so consult your tax advisor about that.
  • Student loans – Many can’t afford the yearly tuition outright, so taking out a loan for a degree is a long-term investment in your future. Many jobs require a college degree or professional certification, some pay higher for a candidate with a degree. And student loans tend to be at a lower interest rate.
  • Auto loan – If you don’t live in an area where public transportation is plentiful, a car is pretty much a necessity to get to work. So in that sense, a car loan may be required. Buying a previously owned model can help – you aren’t incurring the immediate depreciation that comes with that new car smell. But be careful…this can show up on the bad debt list, too.

Bad Debt

Another way to look at this is deferred gratification vs. instant. Is this debt getting you something long term or just a quick fix? If it’s a quick fix, it’s likely a bad debt.

 

  • Credit cards – This one isn’t a surprise, of course. And it applies whether it’s a major credit card or a store credit card. With higher interest rates and minimum monthly payments that look small but multiply over time, using plastic for those just-out-of-reach items really reduces your financial freedom. If medical emergencies come up, look to your medical provider for financial aid or payment options instead of credit cards. Many will work with you.
  • Cash advances – Also called payday loans, these are extremely high in interest and often have an additional fee. They are the ultimate quick fix that keeps charging you, big time, and should be avoided.
  • Auto loan – That’s right, auto loans could be considered BOTH good & bad debt. Although it’s not inherently bad debt, the interest rates on auto loans can be quite high, especially if your credit isn’t great. But there’s a smart way to stay off this list when you buy a car. Make as large a down payment as you can afford to keep those high-interest payments as low as possible.

As a general rule, as long as you’re using debt for long-term benefits that can enrich your future and net worth, instead of consumables that depreciate quickly, there’s a good chance your debt won’t be considered bad debt. Your financial professional can help you understand more.

What is a 6-D

 

Answer: a 6D certificate is a notarized document which is required for most sales or refinancing of condominiums.  This document needs to be completed by a unit owner’s closing date.  A 6D Certificate provides a bank, mortgage company or attorney the information that  ALL BALANCES ARE PAID and that the association is not due any fees prior to the refinancing or sale of a condominium. 6d Certificate. The term “6d” certificate refers to that statutory section of the Condominium Act, section 6 (d). Lenders and their closing attorneys will require a “clean” 6d which states there are no unpaid fees. The recording of a clean 6d certificate will prevent the association from ever filing a lien against that unit.

If you are selling or refinancing your condominium you must take the following steps in order to obtain a 6D certificate:

1.  Sign an Information Release Form at the Mgmt. Office. 

This form allows Mgmt. to answer questions for attorney, brokers, mortgage companies and appraisers that may be a part of your sale or refinance.

2.  Notify the office of the closing date along with the name and contact information for the New Buyer.                                          

For a refinance, closing date alone will suffice.

3.  Once a closing date has been determined, then discuss amount and checks with condo management office.     

4.  Please be reminded that a 6D certificate takes 2 weeks or 10 business days to process.

Buyer’s Closing Checklist

The day has finally come and it’s time to close on the purchase of your property. You will need to bring the following to the closing:

  • Funds For Closing. If you need to bring cash to the closing, you must bring to closing a bank or certified check PAYABLE TO YOURSELF for the balance of the figure shown on line 303 on your HUD-1 Settlement Statement: Cash From Buyers. This is for fraud prevention, and you’ll endorse the check over to the closing attorney at the closing. The closing attorney should provide you with this number at least 24-48 hours prior to closing. Accordingly, if you need to move funds around from investments accounts, etc., do so well in advance of the closing, and be prepared to make a bank run to obtain that bank/certified check!
  • Homeowner’s Insurance Binder. At closing, you need a homeowner’s insurance binder showing the first year premium paid. If you are purchasing a condominium unit, you will need to provide with the Master Insurance Binder, and depending on the type of loan you use, you may need an HO-6 policy covering the interior of your unit. The closing attorney will typically get an insurance binder ordered ahead of time, but this should be on your “to-do” list.
  • Your state issued driver’s license with picture or other picture identification. Some lenders now require a second form of i.d. Your closing attorney will advise you of this.
  • If a sale of your present home is required by your new lender, you must bring the HUD-1 Settlement Statement and a copy of the Deed from that transaction.
  • Good Faith Estimate. You should bring the Good Faith Estimate of closings costs that your lender originally provided to you during the loan application process. That way, you can ensure that the final closing costs match up to those originally quoted to you.
  • Draft HUD-1 Settlement Statement. You should have received a preliminary HUD-1 Settlement Statement from the closing attorney’s office. Due to lender delays, it is not uncommon to receive this the night before or the morning of closing, although this is obviously not ideal. Compare the prelim HUD to the HUD you are signing at the closing table.
  • Your Smile. Yes, bring your smile. It’s a happy day, and despite all the tumult and stress you are finally purchasing your home!
