Government Home Loans FHA/VA/USDA in St. Augustine Florida
Jim Poole, Zero Down, USDA Purchase Loans, FHA 203(K) Rehab & VA Streamline Loans

Government Home Loans FHA/VA/USDA in St. Augustine Florida are still being used in most purchase transactions. I specialize in FHA, USDA, VA Loan products.

When it comes to less out of pocket expense at a rate that is competitive with other lenders such as the conventional types more people are choosing to go with the Govies; which are aka FHA, VA and USDA Loans

However lenders are not always willing to adopt into practice the new programs being passed down byHUD. Lets just say it would appear that this particular program isn't being accepted with open arm's on main street so far.

HUD recently launched a program aimed at helping people who are current on their mortgage loans; refinance to the lower prevailing rates being offered through FHA and VA Approved Lenders even if they are under water or up-side down on their mortgages due to reduced property values.

FHA Launched a Refinance Opportunity for Underwater Homeowners who are in good standing with their current Lenders. Not just FHA Loans but all type loans.

Here is how the program is designed:

The program states that if a responsible homeowner can get his or her current lender to WRITE OFF or FORGIVE a minimum of 10% of the current loan balance; then they will do a loan for up to 115% of the property value.

So if the balance is $300,000. the lender must agree to shave off a minimum of $30,000. of the borrowers loan balance. The problem lies in how willing will lenders be to do that for a loan that is currently being paid as agreed?

In the real world lenders are focused on mitigating current defaults rather than reducing the balances owed on loans that are in GOOD STANDING.

So far I have yet to find an FHA Lender who has adopted this program into their portfolio. It seems that in some cases at least there is a disconnect between what is being passed down by HUD and what works in the real world.

The program was designed to encourage principal write-downs for responsible borrowers. Unfortunately lenders have yet to get encouraged by the write downs or by the 115% loan program itself.

I know this article has to do with REFINANCING but everyone probably knows someone personally that is in this situation and would like to use this particular program. What home owner who is current on their loan and owes more on their property than it is currently worth wouldn't want a 10% balance reduction as well as a 2% rate reduction? So my issue is the same as every responsible home owner; why isn't it being made available on main street?

UPDATE 1/26/2011 - Lenders are now adopting this program as part of their portfolio; please contact Jim Poole at 813-205-7958 if you are interested in applying for this program ASAP as the program is only being offered for a limited time.

For more information on Government Home Loans FHA/VA/USDA in Tampa Florida I can be reached by phone at 813-205-7958.

The Many Neighborhoods of St. Augustine Part II of IV - Historic Downtown Homes
An Marshall, Your St Augustine Real Estate Consultant (Berkshire Hathaway - St. Augustine)

St. Augustine is the oldest city in the United States.  Much of the downtown area has either been preserved, restored, or refinished to emulate the centuries and cultural influences of days gone by.
The historic downtown area of St. Augustine is a great neighborhood to live in with an old town feel.  If you like being able to walk to great restaurants, establishments for music and entertainment, shopping,  art  galleries and local schools, finding a historic downtown home is for you. 

Homes were frequently built in the last part of the 1800’s or early 1900’s.  The architecture  often reflects the period of days gone by.  Old City and Old Town represent a Spanish Colonial style with Spanish tile roof, exterior walls with inlaid tile mosaics,  multiple balconies, and coquina stone walls or foundations.  Driving is often on very narrow streets or one-way cobblestone streets.  Parking is primarily on the street, in a driveway or detached garage. 

Historic Downtown Home

 

 



The Lincolnville neighborhood in St. Augustine is a historic district   founded in 1866 by former slaves.  Washington St. became the center for black-owned businesses in the early part of the 20th century.  This area of about 45 blocks has the highest density of buildings of the Victoria era including those of the gothic revival  genre.  Generally the lots are small. 

 

 

The Flagler Model Land Co. area is just north of King Street with beautiful homes on paved oak-lined streets along  with mature palm, fruit and flowering trees.  Detached in-law suites and floral gardens are familiar.  Some of these homes have RG1 zoning allowing for varied use.  Typical amenities  include stained glass inserts, wood floors, and quaint porches and balconies.

 

 

 

Bridge of Lions

 

 




Uptown, Magnolia and Nemar Terrace is a little farther north than the hubbub of the immediate downtown area.  Fireplaces, stucco walls, and wood beams are often seen in the homes that are cottage style.  This district  bustles with antique stores and still just blocks from the intercoastal waterway.

The sights, the smell, and the feel of St. Augustine provides unique stimuli with old trolleys and horse drawn carriages clip-clopping down city streets.  People travel to their work place dressed in period costume as pirates, Spanish soldiers, and colonial women. The youthful Flagler college students add a contemporary element.  The trolley bell rings regularly and the horn blows as the Bridge of Lions gates open to let a tall ship pass by.  The city is committed to preserving  its roots since 1565 and managing the many state-owned historic properties. Even newer homes have been built to be in keeping with the area. 


Prices in the downtown
area depend largely upon the condition and the updating of the home.
Homes that have had  little updating done throughout the year can be “projects” and may be more difficult to obtain financing and insurance.   Codes have to be met that meet safety standards for   plumbing, electrical, central heat and air systems and the roof.   For those who want more shared common spaces and less property maintenance,  there are a few condominium projects.
