What are QR codes?

The reason why they are more useful than a standard barcode is that they can store (and digitally present) much more data, including url links, geo coordinates, and text. The other key feature of QR Codes is that instead of requiring a chunky hand-held scanner to scan them, many modern cell phones can scan them.

They look like this: ____________

How does the cell phone read the code?

They come to us from Japan where they are very common. QR is short for Quick Response (they can be read quickly by a cell phone). They are used to take a piece of information from a transitory media and put it in to your cell phone. We use QR Codes in our magazine to see the virtual tour or website of a property. Once it is in your cell phone, it will give you details about that property or business.

The cell phone needs a QR code reader, which most of them are free from your app store. It takes literally 1 minute for someone with an iPhone or Android phone to find and install the reader

How QR codes work 1. The QR code is scanned by a device, in this case a smart phone.

2. QR code software on the phone analyzes the image and extracts encoded information.

UPDATE ON HUD $100 DOWN PAYMENT! HUD has recently changed the way they market their HUD foreclosed homes. They are trying to upgrade their image and they do not want to their foreclosed homes to be lump in with the other “bank foreclosures”. You still have to place your bid for a HUD foreclosed home on the Internet and you still have to use a Realtor. So, for the homebuyer that part is pretty much the same as before. But, the most important thing is they are still going to offer the HUD $100 Down Payment Incentive in most parts of the country! The normal down payment for FHA Home Loans is 3.5% and for conventional loans the down payment is up to 20%. Most people that want to purchase a home really don’t have a lot of money available for a down payment so they are left out of today’s home market. But everyone should be able to come up with hundred dollars for a down payment. But this is a government program and there are, of course, some strings attached.You have some requirements in order to take advantage of this $100 down payment program. The $100 Down Payment Program Has the Following Requirements: 1. HUD Foreclosed Homes Only! This FHA $100 Down Payment Loan is for the purchase of HUD foreclosure homes. 2. Have to use FHA financing.You cannot use conventional financing. 3. This program is for Owner-Occupants only, not for Investors.You have to sign a form at closing stating you are going to live in the property and not use it has an investment such as a rental property. 4.You still need to have the earnest money of $1,000 for properties listed above $50,000 and $500 for properties listed for less than $50,000. Earnest money will be returned to you at closing as a credit on the Closing Statement. 5.You can ask HUD to pay for closing costs up to 3% of purchase price. If you are going to buy a home in the near future, you need to consider HUD Homes with this HUD Homes $100 Down Payment Program.

What type of mortgage do you advise?

Answer:

There’s no easy answer to your question. To get the most attractive rate and terms on your next home loan, you’ll need to compare options on several types of mortgages. Since each mortgage product is designed to meet specific needs, you and the lender will evaluate your particular wishes and circumstances in order to find the product that is right for you.

Ask the Editor

Lisamarie Schmidt

Interest rates are determined by the term of the loan, the amount of the down payment, and your credit score, among other factors.

Fixed-rate home loans are typically available with terms of 15, 20, 30 or 40 years. Generally, lower interest rates are offered for mortgages with shorter terms. Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARMs) have a variety of terms. They include a lower up front rate, but that interest rate will increase during the life of the loan according to your contract or as market interest rates change. Compare rates from several lenders. Whether you are refinancing or searching for a new home loan. Only the lender you contact can give you the information you want. Often, your local bank or mortgage company will be your best choice. Mortgage companies have a wide variety of loans. Remember that if you are paying less than 20 percent down, you’ll also be paying for mortgage insurance. FHA loans are fairly easy to get. While their mortgages haven’t changed much, they do have their advantages: They have less-stringent qualification and credit requirements, and the required down payment is lower as well. The drawback is that they take longer to arrange and close than a loan from your local lender would. It takes time and effort to evaluate the market for what may be the largest purchase you’ll ever make.

Earnest Money Forfeiture and/or Return The following provisions are applicable in all instances except those where HUD is unable or unwilling to close the sale, in which case the entire amount will be returned.

Investor Purchasers: •

Uninsured Sales: 100% of the deposit will be forfeited to HUD for failure to close, regardless of the reason.

Insured Sales:

• 50% of the deposit will be forfeited to HUD for failure to close if the purchaser is determined by HUD to be an unacceptable buyer.

• 100% of the deposit will be forfeited to HUD if the sale fails to close for any other reason.

Owner-Occupant Purchasers: Return 100% of the deposit when:

There has been a death in the immediate family (purchaser, spouse or children living in the same household).

• There has been a recent serious illness in the immediate family that has resulted in significant medical expenses or substantial loss of income, thus adversely, affecting the purchaser’s financial ability to close the sale. •

There has been a loss of job by one of the primary breadwinners, or a substantial loss of income through no fault of the purchaser.

For an FHA insured sale, HUD (or a D.E. underwriter) determines that the purchaser is not an acceptable borrower. For an uninsured sale, the purchaser was pre-approved for mortgage financing in an appropriate amount by a recognized lender and, despite good faith efforts, is unable to obtain mortgage financing. “Pre- approved” means a commitment has been obtained from a recognized mortgage lender for mortgage financing in a specified dollar amount sufficient to purchase the property.

• There is other equally good cause, as determined by AM Contractor, in keeping with the spirit and intent of the above policy. Return 50% of the deposit when: For an uninsured sale, despite good faith efforts by the purchaser, there is an inability to obtain a mortgage loan from a recognized mortgage lender. Forfeit 100% if the deposit when:

• No documentation is submitted.

• Documentation fails to provide an acceptable cause for the buyer’s failure to close.

• Documentation is not provided within a reasonable time following contract cancellation.

Vacant Lot Sales: The purchaser is considered to be an investor and instructions pertaining to investors will apply.

Closing Costs (Line 5) HUD pays certain Closing Costs up to 3% of the purchase price, IF inserted on line 5 of the sales contract when the electronic bid is submitted. Enter this numeric figure (not percentage) on line 5.

28

IndyInvestorMagazine.com


Closing Time Frame All purchasers must close on or before forty-five (45) days of contract acceptance date for normal and cash closings. 203k must close sixty (60) days of contract acceptance.

Closing Extension Policy ALL SALES ARE EXPECTED TO CLOSE WITHIN THE APPLICABLE TIME FRAME IDENTIFIED ON LINE 9 OF THE SALE CONTRACT. Closing Extension Request: If the closing does not occur on the specified date on line 9 of the HUD Sales Contract 9548, the Broker should contact HUD’s Closing Agent at least two weeks prior to that date to request an extension. AM Contractors, as HUD’s Representative, may grant an extension of closing time and, if approved, each extension will be for a period of fifteen (15) days: • Submit the “Request For Extension of Closing Date” (Extension Request form) and all the required supplemental supporting documents to HUD’s Closing Agent prior to the expiration of the sales contract. • Documentation submitted with the extension request must establish that a closing can reasonably be expected to occur within the extension period. • The extension request must be accompanied by a cashier’s check, money order or other certified funds in the appropriate amount and made payable to HUD. The fee is based on the Contract Sales Price:

Contract Sales Price

Extension Fee

Equal to or less than $25,000.00

$150.00 ($10.00 per day)

$25,000.01 to $50,000.00

$225.00 ($15.00 per day)

$50,000.01 and over

$375.00 ($25.00 per day)

• The initial 15-day extension will be provided for owner occupant purchasers, at no cost, if documentation is provided indicating that proper and timely loan application was made, that the delayed closing is not the fault of the purchaser and that mortgage approval is imminent. • The extension fee will be retained by HUD. In the event that the purchaser closes prior to the end of the extension period, the unused, prorated portion of the extension fee will be credited to the amount due at closing. •

The approval of an extension does not obligate AM Contractor, as HUD’s Representative, to grant future extensions.

Home Inspection

(Optional, but highly recommended)

There is a 15 day due diligence period.You must have FSM authorize your home inspection.You have 48 hours to complete home inspection after last utility is turned on and you must turn off utilities after inspection.

IndyInvestorMagazine.com

Fill out a utility activation request form. The utilities are to be turned on in the purchaser’s name and at purchaser’s expense. The purchaser is responsible for the actual costs to activate, deactivate and when necessary, re-winterize the property. The purchaser must place a refundable $150 deposit, in the form of certified funds or money order. The amount is sufficient to cover these costs. This deposit is required to ensure the property has been re-winterized. It is the buyer’s responsibility and cost to re-winterize. If the property has not been re-winterized at the end of the allowable 72 hr period, this may result in a delay of closing (buyer will also be responsible for any property damage incurred).

FHA Amendatory Clause This addendum is not required and will not be executed on HUD sales. HUD homes are exempt from the clause.

Your house sure looks pretty at Christmas: Why not show it?

Family, cheer, warmth these are some of the memories and feelings the holidays conjure up and they are, not coincidentally, the best possible feelings to create when showing your home. Holidays offer the seller so many options for making a home perfect for the buyer: Special lights, holiday smells, cozy fireplaces, and festive decorations. Remember, though, the motto for sellers is ‘stay simple.’ • Use modest lighting and decorations inside and out. • If you have a Christmas tree, consider buying one size smaller than you usually buy. Arrange a few simple gifts with matching wrapping paper under the tree. Make sure there is no extravagant display of gifts or toys under the tree. Store furniture that is displaced by the tree. • For all decorations, smaller and simpler is better. • Favor natural materials such as real pine branches and pine cones for wreaths and other decorations, and shun plastics or bright, big decorations. Avoid blowup decorations outside. • Decorate your home with fragrance. Bake bread or cookies. If this is impossible, try light holiday fragrances such as vanilla or cinnamon. Avoid heavy pine smells. • Clean thoroughly your fireplace and make sure a small, crackling fire is going during walk-throughs. But pay special attention to the temperature of your home. Make sure the home is lightly warm, not so toasty that potential buyers can’t stand to wear their coats. • Make sure all your window blinds and curtains are open for day showings. This means the windows themselves must be perfectly clean.

As you might expect, newer homes generally experience the fewest problems or defects. However, the survey does point to some areas which can be of concern, even in a new or newer home.

Homes in this age range tend to require more repairs than newer ones. In a few categories, homes in this age group actually score worse than older homes. This is generally because systems in these homes are nearing the end of their useful service life, while in the older homes these systems will have been replaced.

While the expression “they don’t build them like they used to” has some truth behind it, older homes generally need more repairs — due to normal wear & tear and aging. It’s interesting to note that in selected categories, the often simpler systems in older homes hold up well.

Stay healthy - A Christmas gift for yourself Don’t wear yourself out in December over-preparing for family, friends, and fancy dinners.

Here are some tips to give yourself a Merry Christmas: • Decorate for yourself. If you love your Christmas village, then why not do it early, even before Thanksgiving, so you can play with it and enjoy it longer? • If you don’t care a thing about a big tree with fancy decoration, deck the halls with something you do like and skip the tree. • The main idea is to do the decorating that means the most and skip the stuff that just drains your energy. • Get some rest! Your family and friends want to see you happy, not frazzled and worn. Plan ahead to have some fun yourself. • Keep dinner simple. Even for formal dining, keep your menu to five items. Make those items special. Forget the rest. • Simple shopping. Studies show that, overwhelmingly, the gifts people like most are gift certificates or money. These don’t work for kids, but they’re a convenient and appreciated gift for adults like your mother, your best friend, your sister, aunt or your uncle.

Operation Santa Paws, December 1-21 During the holiday season extra help is needed for abused and abandoned animals in local animal shelters. One grassroots organization, Operation Santa Paws, is helping by spreading the word about a canine-feline toy or treat drive to benefit less-fortunate pets this season. Animal lovers are encouraged to purchase a new dog toy, cat toy, food or food treats that will be delivered in time for Christmas to a local shelter and rescue organization. Think about a sad puppy who knows nobody loves him, a beautiful cat that has lost her family for some reason, or a mature dog that had a loving family until they had to move and could no longer care for him. On Christmas, a toy or a food treat will make them joyful for the day, and you will feel joyful for making it possible.

Atlantis Realty Group will be delivering items to two local shelters on December 22nd. If you would like to drop off items to our main office, 8645 E 96th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46256, we would be glad to deliver them to the shelter for you.

Looking for a 2nd home in Florida??

Now is the time to buy!

Atlantis Realty Group can help. We have an office south of Miami in Homestead, Florida. Check out our listings and others at www.AtlantisRealtyGroup.com

203(k) - How Is It Different?

of the property being financed. A portion of the loan proceeds are used to pay the seller, or, if a refinance, to pay off the existing mortgage, and the remaining funds are placed in an escrow account and released as rehabilitation is completed. You may also roll in up to six months of mortgage payments if the HUD consultant determines you need to be displaced from the home during the repairs.

When a homebuyer wants to purchase a house in need of repair or modernization, the homebuyer usually has to obtain financing first to purchase the dwelling; additional financing to do the rehabilitation construction; and a permanent mortgage when the work is completed to pay off the interim loans with a permanent mortgage. Often the interim financing (the acquisition and construction loans) involves relatively high interest rates and short amortization periods. The Section 203(k) program was designed to address this situation. The borrower can get just one mortgage loan, at a long-term fixed (or adjustable) rate, to finance both the acquisition and the rehabilitation of the property. To provide funds for the rehabilitation, the mortgage amount is based on the projected value of the property with the work completed, taking into account the cost of the work.

We will discuss both of these loans in detail but first letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s discuss the 203(k) process from start to finish.

Most mortgage financing plans provide only permanent financing. That is, the lender will not usually close the loan unless the condition and value of the property provide adequate loan security. When rehabilitation is involved, this means that a lender typically requires the improvements to be finished before a long-term mortgage is made.

These are two Different 203(k) Loans Available

Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s What You Can Expect:

1. Find a Property and Make the Offer - A potential homebuyer locates a fixer-

upper and executes a purchase agreement or sales contract after doing a feasibility analysis of the property with their real estate agent.

2. Find a FHA approved Lender and Meet with a 203(k) Specialist

- The homebuyer then selects an FHA-approved 203(k) lender and arranges for a detailed proposal from licensed contractors showing the scope of the work to be done, including a detailed cost estimate on each repair or improvement of the project.

3. Appraise the Property - The appraisal

is performed to determine the value of the property Choosing which loan suits you best will depend after renovation. The appraiser will also determine on the amount of improvement your property if there are any additional repairs necessary for the property to meet minimum FHA property needs. guidelines.

5. Work Begins on the Property

(2) Must be owner occupied (no investors)

The mortgage payments and renovation begin after the loan closes. The borrower can decide to have up to six mortgage payments (PITI) put into the cost of rehabilitation if the property is not going to be occupied during construction, but it cannot exceed the length of time it is estimated to complete the rehab.

(4) The lesser of 5 units in the project or 25% of the total number of units can be undergoing rehabilitation at the same time

6. Disbursements & Payment (Draws) - Escrowed funds are released to the

contractor during construction through a series of draw requests for completed work. To ensure completion of the job, 10% of each draw is held back; this money is paid after the lender determines there will be no liens on the property. The borrower will always approve the release of funds to the contractor.

(3) Rehab is limited only to the interior of the property

(5) The maximum amount of the loan cannot exceed 100% of the after improved value (6) No more than four condo units per building

How the Program Can Be Used This program can be used to accomplish rehabilitation and/or improvement of an existing one-to-four unit dwelling in one of three ways: (1) To purchase a home and rehabilitate it.

Eligible Properties

(2) To purchase a dwelling on another site, move it onto a new foundation and rehabilitate it.

To be eligible, the property must be a one- to fourfamily dwelling that has been completed for at least one year. In addition to typical home rehabilitation projects, this program can be used to convert a one-family dwelling to a two-, three-, or four-family dwelling. An existing multi-unit dwelling could be decreased to a one- to four-family unit.

(3) To refinance an existing mortgage and rehabilitate the home.

A 203(k) mortgage may be originated on a “mixed use” residential property provided: (1) The property has no greater than 25 percent (for a one story building); 33 percent (for a three story building); and 49 percent (for a two story building) of its floor area used for commercial (storefront) purposes; (2) The commercial use will not affect the health and safety of the occupants of the residential property; and (3) The rehabilitation funds will only be used for the residential functions of the dwelling and areas used to access the residential part of the property. A 203(k) mortgage may be originated on a condominium provided: (1) The condominium project has been approved by FHA

Features of the Standard 203(k)

FHA Approved Consultants

- All Standard 203(k) loans must use a FHA Approved 203(k) consultant.

The HUD consultant will also carry out the disbursement and final inspections needed to pay your contractors. Basically they are there to help you through the construction process and verify all work is completed satisfactorily and as stated and that the home meets HUD’s minimum property guidelines when repairs are completed.

Mistletoe

!

Being kissed under the mistletoe has been a Christmas tradition for more than a thousand years. But mistletoe is not only associated with a gentle kiss, it has a lore all its own. To the ancient Scandinavians, mistletoe symbolized peace. Enemies meeting under the mistletoe declared a truce until the following day. On a more domestic note, disgruntled spouses kissed and made up under the greenery.

The Druids believed mistletoe possessed magical powers. Their priests cut the plant with golden sickles and gathered the trimmings on white cloth so the plant would never touch the earth and lose its enchantment. The French didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like it. They said mistletoe was cursed because it grew on the wood from which the cross of Christ was made and that it was doomed to be a rootless parasite forever. In the Middle Ages, mistletoe was hung from ceilings in Europe to ward off evil, or it was dangled over doors to prevent the entrance of witches. If mistletoe was suspended over a crib, the child was said to be safe from kidnapping. Viking lore describes the goddess of love, Frigga, who made each plant and animal promise not to kill her son Baldur. She forgot the mistletoe plant and Baldur was killed by a spear made from it. The white berries on the mistletoe are said to have been created from her tears. When her son returned to life, Frigga proclaimed the mistletoe to be sacred. She kissed everyone who passed under it and decreed the plant should henceforth bring love. This is said to be the origin of kissing under the mistletoe. So go ahead. Kiss under the mistletoe, have fun doing it, and give a nod to Frigga for starting a very enjoyable custom.
