The ABC

s of mortgage terms

T

Contingency: A clause in a purchase contract outlining conditions that must be fulfilled before the contract is executed. Both buyer or seller may include contingencies in a contract, but both parties must accept the contingency.

he world of mortgage lending is filled with jargon and acronyms that can confuse and bewilder even the most informed home buyer. If you need a little help navigating the alphabet soup of terms and phrases related to getting a mortgage, here’s a primer with some common terms you might encounter as you work through the mortgage process.

Deposit (earnest money): Money put down by a potential buyer to show that they are serious about purchasing the home; it becomes part of the down payment if the offer is accepted, is returned if the offer is rejected or is forfeited if the buyer pulls out of the deal. During the contingency period, the money may be returned to the buyer if the contingencies are not met to the buyer’s satisfaction.

Amortization: A payment plan that enables you to reduce the debt gradually through monthly payments. The payments may be principal and interest or interest-only. The monthly amount is based on the schedule for the entire term or length of the loan. Annual percentage rate (APR): A measure of the cost of credit, expressed as a yearly rate. It includes interest as well as other charges. Because all lenders (by federal law) follow the same rules to ensure the accuracy of the annual percentage rate, it provides consumers with a good basis for comparing the cost of loans, including mortgage plans. APR is a higher rate than the simple interest of the mortgage. Appraised value: An estimation of the current market value of a property.

M O R T G A G E M AT T E R S

Equity: An owner’s financial interest in a property; calculated by subtracting the amount still owed on the mortgage loan(s) from the fair market value of the property.

LIQUID

LIBRA

Balloon loan or mortgage: A mortgage that typically offers low rates for an initial period of time (usually five, seven or 10 years); after that time period elapses, the balance is due or is refinanced by the borrower.

RY

Graduated payment mortgages: Mortgages that begin with lower monthly payments that increase slowly over a period of years, eventually reaching a fixed level and remaining there for the life of the loan. Graduated payment loans may be good if you expect your annual income to increase.

Loan fraud: Purposely giving incorrect information on a loan application in order to qualify for a loan or to qualify for better loan terms; may result in civil liability or criminal penalties.

Balloon payment: The final lump-sum payment due at the end of a balloon mortgage.

Loan-to-value (LTV) ratio: A percentage calculated by dividing the amount borrowed by the price or appraised value of the home to be purchased; the higher the LTV, the less cash a borrower is required to pay as a down payment.

Closing: The final step in property purchase where the title is transferred from the seller to the buyer. Closing occurs at a meeting between the buyer, seller, settlement agent and other agents. At the closing, the seller receives payment for the property. Also known as settlement.

Market value: The amount a willing buyer would pay a willing seller for a home. An appraised value is an estimate of the current fair market value.

Commission: An amount, usually a percentage of the property sales price that is collected by a real estate professional as a fee for negotiating the transaction. Traditionally the home seller pays the commission. The amount of commission is determined by the real estate professional and the seller and can be as much as 6 percemt of the sales price.

Property tax deduction: The U.S. tax code allows homeowners to deduct the amount they have paid in property taxes from their total income.

National publications are taking note of everything Nashville, from the food and fashion to music and more.

R = Reward schools. Reward schools are made up of the top 5 percent of schools in the state for performance—as measured by overall student achievement levels—and the top 5 percent for year-over-year progress—as measured by gains in student achievement. These 10 percent of schools receive recognition for their success under the accountability system. P = Priority schools. Priority schools are in the bottom 5 percent of overall performance across tested grades and subjects. These schools will receive one of four types of supports: • Placement in the state-run Achievement School District • Turnaround under the governance of a district-led Innovation Zone • Turnaround through one of the federal School Improvement Grant plans, subject to state approval • District-led school improvement planning processes, subject to direct ASD intervention in the absence of improved results. F = Focus schools. Focus schools are the 10 percent of schools across the state with the largest achievement gaps between groups of students. This designation does not indicate low achievement levels. In fact, focus schools may be highperforming schools that show significant year-over-year gains, but fail to close gaps between groups of students. Focus schools will address underperforming groups by: • Implementing programs targeted at specific subgroups of students • Applying for competitive Focus school grants aimed at closing achievement gaps • Using state resources, if necessary, to help fund programming to spur subgroup growth.) O = Other. The 75 percent of schools in the middle of the scale. Note: Reward, Priority and Focus schools represent 25 percent of Tennessee schools. Schools labeled as Other are not in the top 10 percent of schools (Reward), nor are they in the bottom 5 percent (Priority). They also are not among the 10 percent of schools in the state with the highest achievement gaps (Focus).

Burkitt Village: An up-and-coming community for new-home buyers

A

rare opportunity is brewing in the South Davidson/Williamson County area for buyers in the market for a new home. Regent Homes has teamed with Lifestyle Homes to deliver a new community: Burkitt Village. The first home sites in this community — located in a highly soughtafter area — become available in August. “South Davidson County has limited opportunities for buyers looking to purchase a brand-new home,” says Regent Homes President David McGowan. “That’s what makes this community so special.” Nestled adjacent to the popular Burkitt Place community, Burkitt Village will remain its own separate neighborhood with its own pocket parks, walking trails, open spaces, underground utilities and wide sidewalks with decorative street lighting. A park will also be located within the roundabout on Middlewick Lane. Some additional perks? The option for ranch-style homes is one. Whether you’re an empty-nester or just prefer one-level living, Burkitt Village offers spacious and open floor plans that satisfy the needs of those who want a ranch home without cutting corners on space. The community will also offer two-story floor plans. Another bonus is the convenience of residing in a prime location. Burkitt Village is central to downtown Nashville, Brentwood, Cool Springs and the airport. The community offers quick access to interstates 24 and 65 and is bordered by numerous amenities: health care, restaurants, shopping and more. Finally, McGowan states there are groups of buyers who have lived in South Nashville or Brentwood and are looking to stay close to their social and church connections. These buyers don’t want to break ties to the area and are seeking energy-efficient, ranch-style homes to fit their needs. For those desiring access to Williamson County’s well-renowned school system, Burkitt Village will offer an additional 95 home sites in the area. The Davidson County homes in

Burkitt Village will range in price from $249,000 to $350,000, each one with a minimum of 1,700 square feet. The Williamson County homes will range in price from $339,000 to $490,000; square footage starts at 2,200. All homes in Burkitt Village will include features from Regent’s EnergySmart program, making each residence more efficient while also saving homeowners on energy and maintenance costs. Brick, stone and siding exteriors will be available for homeowners to choose from. The lots in Davidson County are level and will feature pastureland; every home will have green space in the back for added privacy. The Williamson County lots will have wooded vistas. All of the floor plans will include the high-end

finishes that Regent Homes prides itself on offering. Salesperson Tom Plahuta says now is the time for buyers to make a move if they are in the market for new construction in this area. Because of the location, as well as trends with interest rates and home prices, Plahuta says Burkitt Village is poised to become a hot seller. “Anyone who buys one of the first homes in this community will get pioneering prices,” says Plahuta.

WILLIAMSON COUNTY BRENTWOOD | FRANKLIN | FAIRVIEW | NOLENSVILLE | SPRING HILL | THOMPSON’S STATION

WILLIAMSON

Franklin: It’s more than just a ‘pretty face’ It’s hard not to love Williamson County. Franklin, the county seat, is the quintessential Southern town set among scenic rolling hills, and the city has a thriving downtown district and quaint city square — traits that no doubt played a part in the city earning the Great American Main Street Award. By any estimation, Franklin is charming. The National Trust for Historic Preservation even cited the city as having one of the Top 5 Most Romantic Main Streets. And the city square, with its surrounding eateries and boutique shops, makes for a pleasant destination to spend the day strolling, dining and indulging in a little retail therapy. But Williamson County is more than just a pretty place to live. It’s also a good place to live.

Deck out your outdoor living space

PHOTODISC

O

nce you’ve moved into your new house, you’ll want to quickly turn it into your personalized home sweet home. After you’ve unpacked the dishes, hung the curtains and found all of your clothes, why not set up an outdoor space where you can truly enjoy the backyard of your new castle? Take a look at your deck and patio and ask how you can customize it to reflect your personality. Whether you’re planning to host outdoor festivities with friends and extended family or just grill up gourmet creations for the immediate family, you can liven up your outdoor space and add value to your home with just a few simple steps. DRESS IT UP If you already have outdoor furniture

that looks a bit drab, repaint it and dress it up with outdoor pillows and cushions. Place your furniture in a square or circular shape in order to facilitate conversations. If a focal point exists, such as a fire pit or great view, arrange the furniture to face that focal point. Embellish railings by adding planter boxes and filling them with colorful annuals. Add accessories like rugs, lawn ornaments and small plants. Flowers, herbs and a variety of vegetables can be grown in planters, boxes and other small spaces. LIGHT IT UP Outdoor gatherings sometimes carry on past sunset, so lighting your deck area is important. There are myriad options available to lighten up any out-

52 | TENNESSEE HOMES | AUGUST - SEPTEMBER 2013 | www.Tennessean.com/TNHomes

door area and create whatever atmosphere you prefer. Solar lamps are a smart, energy-efficient way to light the walk and seating areas, while Chinese lanterns hanging in the trees create a fun party feel. Lights lining railing walkways will direct attendees to and from the gathering areas safely, and an enclosed bonfire pit or portable fireplace is a great way to gather people for post-dinner carousing. Sufficient lighting will encourage guests to stay past dark and allow everyone to enjoy the evening. By following these simple steps, you’ll be spending more time outdoors and have a fresh space to enjoy with family and friends. — Brandpoint Content

squeeze with your hand) and taking a few deep breaths along the way. “Whether you are hiring help or doing it yourself, you can expect a fair amount of anxiety,” says Sean E. Burns, a psychologist with Counseling Associates of West Michigan. “It’s helpful to simply recognize that it’s normal that your life is out of order during this period. Once moved, it’s important to resume life’s routines as soon as possible. Don’t worry about getting everything in place right away; put a priority on resuming your workouts and family trips to the park, and the rest will take care of itself over time.” In particular, summer moves mean that you need to plan further in advance and be more flexible with your move dates. “We moved 1.3 homes or businesses per minute last summer,” says Randy Shacka, president of Two Men And A Truck. “In fact, we moved 2,851 homes and businesses in the two days between June 28 and June 29. Based on yearover-year trend analysis of every move within our 260-store system, we believe that same weekend will likely be our

busiest again this summer.” So, how do you begin to navigate the waters of the busiest moving season? “In a perfect world we’d all plan ahead, but the reality is we’re busy with work and life, and next thing you know you have seven days to get moved,” Shacka says. “So while it’s important to be flexible, box things in advance, etc., you might just consider doing a few simple things to make your life a bit easier on move day.” Shacka suggests the following: Kids rule: If hiring a sitter isn’t an option on move day, get the kids involved as “supervisors.” Help them with a simple checklist or turn a box into a “treasure chest” of their own belongings so the move becomes a positive experience for them. Free Fido: Keeping an eye on the kids during a move is hard enough, but when you add managing the dog as she tries to skirt through every open door, things can get a bit more stressful. Ask a family friend to watch your pets or consider boarding them for the day. The money spent is a good investment in reducing your overall stress. Space it out: Often homeowners will move all their furniture into one room

54 | TENNESSEE HOMES | AUGUST - SEPTEMBER 2013 | www.Tennessean.com/TNHomes

to save time for their movers. This can be a cost savings for boxes, but when it comes to furniture it can slow the move down. A good moving company will use stretch wrap to protect furniture, so when packed tightly together into one room the pieces have to be moved twice to properly prepare for the move. Go ahead and consolidate boxes, but save yourself the hassle; leave furniture where it lives. Picture this: Photos and artwork are often the last things to be packed, because it seems safer to just leave them hanging until they are ready to be moved. In truth, they often delay a move because movers have to remove them to get furniture past. Ask your movers to provide you with the appropriate packing materials in advance, and pack your photos yourself. It’s often light lifting, and it’s a fun way to relive memories while thinking about life’s next great adventure. — Brandpoint Content

ROBERTSON COUNTY

CHEATHAM

Come home to pastoral living If you’re looking for peaceful country living that is just a stone’s throw from the city, look at Cheatham County. With wooded hillsides, open farmland, and scenic rivers and lakes, the area offers an attractive and pastoral setting. The communities of Kingston Springs, Pegram, Pleasant View and Ashland City provide residents with a neighborly feel despite the county’s rapid expansion. Plentiful, affordable housing is found throughout the county, with choices of suburban or rural settings. Residents have the best of both worlds: a serene setting with easy access to city life and jobs. Sidewalks and lighting have given downtown Kingston Springs a sleek new look. Local restaurants include Red Tree Coffee. Because of numerous community events, residents have many opportunities to meet throughout the year. Pegram is a great place to raise a family and is quaintly referred to as “The Pretty Little Town of Pegram.” The town has its own special treasures. Popular places include Finch’s Country Store and Mud Puddle Pottery Studio (which offers pottery workshops and classes). Pleasant View Village is a new planned community featuring condominiums and retail shops. Popular dining spots here include Chris’ Pizza Village and Pleasant View Village
