Who will help open the door to your new home? The Importance of Knowing Your Mortgage Lender

Purchasing a home, whether it’s your first or your fourth, involves placing your trust – and your in-depth financial information – in a mortgage lender’s care. A mortgage loan is one of the largest financial investments many people make in a lifetime. Even if it is not, the monies involved in a mortgage transaction are usually substantial, should be carefully handled and involve equity positioning that should be astutely monitored. In today’s volatile financial market, the importance of choosing a qualified mortgage lender cannot be overstated; mortgage lenders are now loosely categorized with financial planners because the impact of both types of service can affect long and short-term financial goals as well as overall financial pictures. Among the ranks of residential mortgage lenders, there are three categories: mortgage brokers, who are independent mortgage lenders; lenders who work for a national, state, or savings bank; or mortgage bankers, those affiliated with a mortgage company or mortgage bank. Each type of lender has different capabilities; but all three categories have qualified mortgage lenders. So, how do you further differentiate among them? The circumstances affecting your choice of mortgage loan program are as individual as you are – as individual as your goals for the future – and as individual as your personal financial goals. The person who helps you choose a mortgage program is helping you select a financial tool that will impact all of those areas. Simply stated, perhaps the most important elements in your choice among qualified lenders is selecting a lender who considers your individual circumstances and goals, and has your best interests at heart.


CLASSIC PROPERTIES INTERNATIONAL

Below are some questions or points you might want to consider when choosing a mortgage lender. Hopefully, these will help you narrow your choice. •  How long has the lender been in the mortgage industry? •  How long has the lender’s company been in operation? •  How long has the lender been with the company he or she works for? •  Is the lender’s company financially stable? Is he or she willing to supply information about the company’s net worth or available lines of credit? •  Do you know others who have used this lender, and how would they rate their experiences? If not, will the lender provide references? •  Does the lender provide optional ways to apply for your loan? Examples: online application, a personal meeting, or by phone.

• •  Does the lender have access to mortgage programs from reputable investors nationwide? •  Does your lender maintain consistent communication throughout the process with clients, Realtors, and other parties involved in the transaction? •  Will the lender provide a Truth-inLending Statement at least three days prior to closing and will that include all fees and applicable costs for closing?

•  Does the lender provide information for closing? Examples: time and date of closing, directions or map to the title company, and information needed at closing. •  During the transaction, does the lender consistently monitor the market to determine the best time to lock in your rate? •  Will the lender attend your closing?

•  Does the lender have a quick-response policy for pre-approval or prequalification? •  Does the company provide in-house mortgage services, or is there centralized processing funding and underwriting?

•  Does the lender provide ongoing market and industry information post-closing? •  Does the lender provide an on-time closing commitment?

•  Does the lender provide an adequate list of information needed for your loan application? •  Does the lender consider your short- and long-term financial goals as well as your overall financial position when recommending a loan program? •  Does the lender provide more than one loan program option?

Welcome to

The Ramble Biltmore Forest Following the guiding principles of Frederick Law Olmsted, one of our nation’s most esteemed landscape architects and planners, this 1,000-acre gated community will offer more than 450 homesites upon completion and is being developed by Biltmore Farms. Premised on respect for the land, The Ramble was designed to preserved open space and promote sustainable stewardship of the natural environment. The Ramble draws its name from Olmsted’s New York City masterpiece, Central Park. The Park’s forested quarter, dubbed the Ramble, was meticulously designed with meandering paths that lure one away from everyday life and back to nature. The Ramble Biltmore Forest, paying great respect to Olmsted’s approach, perpetuates this affinity for natural surroundings while simultaneously offering the comforts of urban proximity. Within sight of the Blue Ridge Parkway and George Vanderbilt’s Biltmore Estate, The Ramble provides all of the benefits of expansive natural surroundings while offering the unmatched convenience of living within six miles of downtown Asheville, North Carolina. Consistently ranked 6


CLASSIC PROPERTIES INTERNATIONAL

as one of the best places in the nation to relocate or retire, Asheville provides a quality of life that is enhanced by a vibrant downtown, quality educational facilities and a nationally acclaimed healthcare system, Mission Hospital. All are within minutes of The Ramble’s main entrance. The community’s geographic proximity is further enhanced by the recent addition of the adjacent mixed-use Biltmore Park Town Square community with its myriad of shops, restaurants, a 15-screen theater and a 165–room Hilton Hotel—all within five minutes of The Ramble. Elements of balance and sustainability are found in every facet of The Ramble. The wooded undulating community has an extensive system of walking trails that run from the meandering Dingle Creek to the top of Ducker Mountain. Parks and trails are central to two of the main tenets of the Ramble– environment and wellness. Longmeadow Park offers an architecturally stunning pavilion that hosts a series of community events. The summer concert series is especially popular with residents on temperate Western North Carolina summer evenings. The Living Well Center provides the ideal setting to connect with community while offering state-of-theart fitness equipment, a yoga area, a well-appointed demonstration kitchen and outdoor saline pool. Ever conscious of its stewardship, Biltmore Farms promotes environmental and community initiatives that enhance the region’s vitality. The Ramble Charitable Fund administered through the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina has granted thousands of dollars benefiting

young and old alike in the greater South Asheville area around the boundaries of The Ramble. The Ramble was designed based on Low Impact Development environmental standards, well beyond regulatory constrictions. The company highly encourages the buildings of certified HealthyBuilt® Homes paying fees for builder submittals at company expense. Collaboration with HandMade in America, a Western North Carolina non-profit promoting craft and culture, culminated in the completion of The Ramble’s HandMade house, an award-winning showcase home that results from the unique collaboration between Biltmore Farms Homes and more than 100 artisans. Biltmore Farms’ community standards demand the highest quality of architecture and sustainable design. The Ramble’s Featured Builders, engrained with an understanding and appreciation of the community’s goals, stand ready to build a custom home on the well-planned home sites. Home sites range from just under $100,000 to $1,950,000. Cottages within the Cottages of Greensward enclave by Biltmore Farms Homes begin in the mid $700,000s; a selection of model homes from the Featured Builders range from $990,000-$2,000,000.

Good News About Jumbo Loans Three months of positive housing data indicates that the real estate market is stabilizing. Couple this with the new availability of jumbo loans and this brings much needed relief to the upper-end market. Many lenders, not fully understanding how the jumbo market fit into the overall tightening of credit, ceased offering larger mortgages. This left high-end homeowners in a tough spot with few financing options available for them to refinance and if they were attempting to sell their home, it further restricted an already small pool of prospective buyers. “The jumbo market is opening up, the funds are plentiful and rates are low,” says Ken Jacobson, CMPS, a mortgage expert at Hometrust Mortgage in Houston, Texas. “Just in the last month competition in the jumbo market has caused rates to fall over two-percent, putting a 30 year fixed loan in the high five-percent range and a 15 year fixed loan in the high four-percent range.” However, the key to getting a great mortgage is to look beyond the numbers. In the wake of some of the largest financial institutions failing and home buyers attempting to navigate the new rules of mortgage financing, what are consumers to do and how do they know they are getting a fair deal? 8


CLASSIC PROPERTIES INTERNATIONAL

1. Get referrals. Who you work with is a critical element in the mortgage process. It is important that your mortgage planner is ethical, experienced and knowledgeable about current mortgage products and the constantly changing rules associated with them. Be honest and upfront with your mortgage planner. Hiding information will only hinder your loan process. There is no such thing as a perfect borrower and a good mortgage planner will guide you through the process. If you are unsure where to start, look for a Certified Mortgage Planning Specialist. CMPS professionals are educated in mortgage, cash flow and real estate equity management strategies that help you build and conserve wealth, become debt free and achieve financial freedom. It is one of the few designations that require ongoing training and testing as well as adherence to a strict code of ethics. 2. Know where you stand. “Right now, credit is more important than ever,” says Ken Jacobson. “We encourage people to talk to us when they are first thinking about a refinance or purchasing a home. We go through their credit with them to make sure there aren’t any surprises. If there is something that would prevent them from getting financing now, we give them an action plan and ideas of what to do to get their credit in shape. Now that sub-prime and alternative lending is a thing of the

factor in getting a mortgage is how well you sleep at night. If someone tells you that an interest-only mortgage is perfect for you, but you are uncomfortable with it – don’t do it.” 4. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Obtaining mortgage financing is relatively straightforward these days, however, be wary of anything that sounds too easy. Underwriters are making sure that borrowers have employment history, income and assets. Borrowers almost always have to have a down payment and they must be able to afford the monthly payment. The startling realization that many homeowners are coming to is that they don’t qualify today for the home they already own. Many homeowners originally purchased their home with a stated-income or no-income loan, which are not available now. 5. Read the fine print. If you are talking to more than one lender, comparing the APR on the Truth in Lending forms and analyzing the differences in the Good Faith Estimates is helpful, but don’t stop there. There is also the loan program to consider and whether there is a prepayment penalty. Take the time to read through the specific lender disclosures, as well as their privacy policy, it is important you know and understand what you are signing.

past, doing this early in the process puts most borrowers at ease and prevents disappointment later.” 3. Consider the future. There are a lot of great mortgage programs available, but they aren’t great for everybody. When discussing options with your mortgage planner think about how long you plan to live in the house, whether you will sell the house when you move or keep it as a rental. If discussing adjustable rate programs, calculate the payment at higher rates and see if it is still manageable. “I encourage all of my clients to do a budget when getting a mortgage. It is important for them to understand their cash flow with all their current and future expenses. Little things are sometimes missed that may have a big impact later, for example, a larger house generally has larger utility bills. And, this is also a good opportunity for couples to make sure they are on the same page as far as their spending. I have line items in my budget for furnishings, window coverings, appliances and yard equipment. Adjusting the amount of the down payment may be an option when discussing any initial big ticket items,” says Jacobson. “Getting a mortgage is not a ‘no brainer’ as some companies claim. It is a serious financial instrument, a sizable debt and requires careful consideration. The most important

Bonnie Brae Catskill View Farm .................................................................................................................................................................................. .......................................................................................................................................................................................... Stockbridge, Massachusetts In 1873, Henry Ivison built Bonnie Brae. His descendants owned it for most of the next 124 years.

The 21-acre grounds contain outbuildings, a carriage house converted to a guest house and the slate-roofed main house. Inside, the dining room is spacious enough for a Gilded Age party. Upstairs, bedrooms and offices await. The opportunity is here to become the third non-Ivison owner of Bonnie Brae. $3,750,000.
