USDA Home Loans

Adjustable Rates, Buy Downs, Discount Points, new programs for our new rate environment!

3/24/2022 Today's episode was filled with emotion. We have all finally come to realize and must embrace that our current environment has changed. Over the last 10 years we have for the most part been on the down elevator in the rate department. Starting in the middle of 2021, interest rates began to climb very slowly. By January of 2022 it was evident that the rates were going to continue to push up on that rate escalator. As of March 1, we were barreling forward from slow steady upward...

1031 Exchange: Avoid Capital Gains

3/4/2022 1031 Exchange transactions are very common among investors who have rental properties and chose to sell. Unless you have occupied the property for a minimum of two years out of the last five years, you will pay capital gains.

There are many rules around the 1031 Exchange process. We touch on many of those...
