Coronavirus and Real Estate

Happy Monday Everyone! 

I’ve had a lot of friends and customers call and ask “how is the coronavirus affecting real estate” ? Well we’re still selling homes, and I had a couple of listings go under contract last week within 24 hours of hitting the market! I’m sure the next few weeks will be interesting, but right now is still a great time to buy or sell real estate! Interest rates are at a low which is great for buyers! Inventory is extremely low which is great for sellers! Check out this video that Florida Realtors published regarding the coronavirus and real estate!

Co-Signing a Mortgage Loan

Good Day Everyone, 

I hope you all are having a great week! Spring is right around the corner which often can be the busiest time of year for home sales. Lately, I’ve received several calls from first time home buyers in regards to purchasing a home. Often people think that if their credit and financial situation isn’t ideal, that they will just get a co-signer to sign on the mortgage. Are you aware of the risk of co-signing on a mortgage or any type of loan for that matter? Below, in my opinion, are the top 5 risk. 

  1. You’re 100% Responsible for the Loan – If the person you’re co-signing for loses their job or decides to quit making the payments, YOU’RE RESPONISIBLE TO PAY BACK THE LOAN. Just because you’re the “2nd person” or “backup” does not mean that you’re not responsible for the loan. 
  2. Credit Score – Co-signing on a loan will affect your credit score. Any delinquencies will appear on your credit score.
  3. Future Loans and Debts – Even if the primary borrower makes all payments on time and is in good standing, retailers and vendors will be notified that you have a mortgage loan in your name, even as a co-signer. 
  4. Your Financial Situation – Your finances will be reviewed to determine if the bank will approve the loan. You will need to provide bank statements, paystubs, tax returns, etc. ; just as if you were the primary borrower.
  5. Do Your Homework – Just remember without you, the primary borrower would not have been approved for this loan. Research and look into their income, debts, etc. before you financially obligate yourself to them and a loan.
