Taking Control QUESTION:

We have a home with a $300,000 loan balance at 3.875%. Because it’s VA, we have to go through an escrow company for taxes and insurance. Our payment amount includes extra for a reserve. My question is when does it make sense to refinance so I can eliminate escrow and control my own payments?


A monthly mortgage payment generally consists of two parts. First, there are the principal and interest payments related to the loan. Then, there can be additional costs for the escrow account – sometimes called an “impound” account -- for such things as property taxes and homeowners insurance. If you have a fixed-rate mortgage you know the monthly cost for principal and interest. They are

By Peter G. Miller

fixed for the life of the loan. Escrow charges can vary. Property taxes, for example, can go up. The same with insurance and other expenses. The amount that can be collected in escrow charges is limited. In basic terms, the maximum amount that an escrow account can hold is equal to 12 months of payments, a two-month cushion, and not more than $50. You must receive an annual statement showing escrow activity. If more than $50 in excess funds are in the account the extra money must be returned to you. If you want to avoid an escrow account you will need at least 20 percent equity when you buy or refinance. With 20 percent equity lenders will not require the use of an escrow account, though many borrowers want one. You are directly responsible for making tax and insurance payments if the lender does not maintain an escrow account The bottom line is this: whether the money is put in an escrow account or you collect it yourself

there are required payments associated with homeownership. If those payments are late or not made there can be serious consequences. An escrow account is very simply an enforced type of savings. It assures required payments can be made. While one can argue that making payments yourself and collecting interest is beneficial, the reality is that interest rates today are so low that it’s hardly worth the effort. If the idea is to invest in stocks and bonds there is the very real possibility that investment values might decline and therefore the money for required payments won’t be there. Given the pros and cons associated with escrow accounts it’s likely that you’re best served by having the money collected each month by the lender. It’s easy, cheap and ends worries that required tax, insurance and other payments won’t be made. Email

In the market for a new home? Start the process on the right foot Smart buyers seek out skilled real estate agents

Home buyers spend more and more of their search time online, scanning listings and real estate sites. “But the human factor – namely a skilled agent -- still provides value,” says Denise Akason, adjunct lecturer at the real estate center, Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University. “For one thing, agents can provide insight about a home’s features and flaws that’s not available online,” says Akason. In fact, online data on current list prices and recent sale amounts can actually mislead buyers since the Internet doesn’t capture certain information, like whether a kitchen has new appliances or if a home shows signs of past water damage. The National Association of Realtors’ {NAR} latest 6

study shows that most buyers do use an agent, but that 75 percent don’t consider more than one agent to represent them. Akason suggests interviewing a few, asking questions like: Do you regularly view brokers’ opens on properties I’m likely to be interested in? Only agents are able to tour homes in “brokers’ opens,” which occur right when a property is listed. By regularly visiting these opens, agents might find homes that don’t look appealing online but are worth seeing in person. Could you tell me about instances when you’ve pointed out a feature that a buyer might not realize is important?

Subtleties, like a basement washing machine on blocks usually indicates past flooding, but are unlikely to be noticed by a buyer. Can I contact past buyers you’ve worked with? The NAR 2018 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers found that 56 percent of buyers ranked “finding the right property” as the most difficult step in purchasing. Another 20 percent said the “paperwork” was the most difficult step, followed by 16 percent who thought “understanding the process” was where they needed help the most. If past clients say an agent was effective in helping them through the difficulties, it’s more likely they’ll help you. OCTOBER 11, 2019

To Buy Or Not To Buy?


f you’re a twenty- or thirtysomething and yearn to reach the homeownership summit, you probably face a tall climb—one that’s steeper than that scaled by previous generations. That’s a forecast supported by hard facts but also skewed by misinformed perceptions among millennials, many of whom mistakenly believe that buying and owning is far out of their reach. Consider the results of two recent polls. Per an 1800Contacts survey, more than four in five millennials who want to own a home fear they will have more difficulty buying than earlier generations, and only 48 percent desire to own versus 70 percent of Gen Z, their younger rivals. Meanwhile, a LendEDU report reveals that 29 percent believe it will take six to 20 years to become a homeowner, 55 percent felt a lack of knowledge about mortgages and homeownership was preventing them from owning, and half admitted that lack of savings or low income was blocking their path to owning. Truth is, it’s hard for many millennials to afford a home nowadays. But with the OCTOBER 11, 2019

Millennials face issues when it comes to homeownership right planning and financial habits, they can eventually overcome these obstacles, the pros concur. “Many are still paying off massive school debt and finishing up higher education,” says Dean Sklar, an agent with The Sklar Team Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate Florida in Weston, Florida. “Plenty of them are also getting a later start in their careers, pursuing nontraditional careers, and earning their income as multiple job holders, freelancers, and self-employed entrepreneurs—a trend that many mortgage lenders are slow to understand that can prevent them from qualifying for a loan.” Remember, as well, that lots of Gen Yers were also rattled by the experience of the Great Recession, when many jobs and homes were lost, forcing many to boomerang back home with mom and dad or trust in renting vs. owning. Add to these factors “higher home prices and a cost of living that is much higher than it was for earlier gen-

erations,” Sklar says. “The median U.S. salaries for ages 30 and 35 are around $42,000 and $50,000 a year, respectively. At these rates, it’s nearly impossible to save the recommended 20 percent down payment in cities where the entry level home or condo can cost a lot more,” notes Stephanie Bousley, a Los Angelesbased financial consultant and author. “Most millennials who are heavily in debt or having financial difficulty don’t allow themselves to think about homeownership because it seems so unattainable and depressing.” But Jia Xie, assistant professor of finance at Cal State Fullerton, insists that homeownership for multitudes of millennials is realistic without the long wait, provided they adopt a different mindset. “They need more education on mortgages and personal finance in general. They need to better understand the benefits and costs of being a homeowner, including the ability to build personal wealth by owning real
