MIKIA MITLIN LOOKS INTO THE FUTURE TO CHANGE HER FUTURE
(Jo) I think my mortgage customers have been looking into the future. Here is a perfect example of someone looking into the future and taking action to profit. Mikia Mitlin,(not her real name) a single professional in her late 30’s. She had been renting her whole adult life, stressing at every rent hike. Now it was time for her rent to go up AGAIN. She was already paying more for food and gas and everything else.
Mikia started watching videos and reading online about the real estate market and the forecasts for the future. Home prices, she decided, were going to keep going up and so were the mortgage rates. If she could manage to buy her own home now, she would feel good about paying for something that would go up in value over time. With some help from a realtor friend from her church and her mortgage officer, Mikia was persistent, prepared and had a strong preapproval letter from her mortgage officer. This is what Mikia said, “Just help me own my own home. If I can buy my home, I don’t care what the rates are. I can always refinance later if rates come down one day.”

3RD SEGMENT STARTS HERE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HOUR)
Conversation back and forth with Jo Garner, Terri Murphy and Saul Klein
TOPICS COVERED BY JO GARNER, MORTGAGE LOAN OFFICER:
Strategies for the future of real estate and mortgage markets:
Rent vs Buy- renters buying a home and getting a fixed-rate mortgage
Investors buying investment property for rental income
Building a home
BUILD IT LIKE YOU WANT IT IN THE COUNTRY-THE KELTNER’S STORY
Kevin and Kelly Keltner had been planning for years to move out of the city and out to the country. Kevin’s employer started letting him work remotely from home instead of coming into the office. Kelly just wanted to smell fresh air and grow vegetables in her garden. They had heard that if you don’t pursue your goals, they are just wishes. It was time to think outside the box and step outside their comfort zone. How could they afford to live in the country?
The answer : They decided to build the home they wanted in the country. Kevin’s mother told Kevin and Kelly that it would be less expensive to live with them than covering the expense of living alone. She agreed to sell her home and use the money to pay for the land for Kevin and Kelly out in the country . The house plan now included a separate living area in the house to give her privacy.
As their mortgage originator, we explored the one-time closing program. This program would allow the Keltner’s to close one time with one set of closing costs. They could lock the fixed mortgage rate and sleep peacefully at night while their home was being built. No worries about the rates getting higher and no worry about having to re -qualify for the mortgage right before the house was built. The house would have to be built in a year or less, but this did not appear to be a problem on the house they wanted to build.
Strategy # 2 Refinance-Restructure
Consolidate variable rate debt into one fixed-rate mortgage
Cash out refinance to improve or modify your home
Cash out refinance to get funds to buy more real estate
Jimmy Jen Does the Math Then Refinances to Pay off Variable Rate Debt
Jimmy Jen had been living in his home for many years and had paid his mortgage down to a little over $100,000. His home was worth over $500,000. Jimmy owned his own business that he almost lost during 2020. To survive the long shutdowns in 2020 Jimmy racked up variable rate debt on an equity line of credit and on his credit cards. With the Federal Reserve going up on their rate, making alarming hikes and promising to make more, Jimmy could see into the future that the cost on his variable rate debt would be hiking right along with the Fed. He called me after listening to Real Estate Mortgage Shoppe and said, “Then what can I do to lock down my debt into a fixed rate? “
The mortgage rate I quoted him to refinance and pay off his old mortgage was higher than the rate he was paying. At first, Mr. Jen hesitated –not wanting to give up his lower mortgage rate. But he discovered he was paying well over 15 % interest on the credit card debt and the interest and payments on this equity line of credit was moving up too. Mr. Jen did some math in his head and decided the refinance of his old mortgage to roll in the other debt would slam the lid down on the variable rate rising costs.
