There are MANY questions about the new rules going into affect Jan 10th. QM specifically refers to Qualified Mortgages. The new laws require banks AND brokers to ensure that clients can repay their loans. Here is some information we hope you find helpful…
Fiction: The points and fees cap is going to put mortgage brokers out of business.
NOT TRUE…the new laws make it illegal for brokers to charge more than 3% in total lender fees. What this equates too for example is a broker or lender changing you $6,000 in their fees on a $200,000 loan. That is a LOT in fees and it is highly unusual for a lender to charge that much so this rule wouldn’t affect most transactions. I would guess most originators that work on volume are making 1-1.25% on average. Well below the 3% rule.
Fact: The Ability-to-Repay Rule does not cap all points and fees. Loans that are not Qualified Mortgages have no restrictions on the total amount of points and fees.
From a friend of mine: “If a loan is a Qualified Mortgage, it cannot include upfront points and fees greater than 3 percent of the total loan amount. Excessive upfront fees can encourage a “take the money and run” business model, where lenders do not have a big financial incentive to evaluate the riskiness of the loan because they make most of their money at the closing table.
The 3 percent cap on Qualified Mortgage fees is a reasonable limit that protects consumers and gives lenders the incentive to evaluate affordability over the life of the loan. The rule also makes allowances for smaller mortgages to ensure that responsible loans are not unintentionally affected.”
The CFPB (the govt agency enforcing these rules) is looking for things like ARM’s, interest only loans, and loans that are over 30 years in length…these will either be disallowed or scrutinized.
As always call your lender with ANY questions!

Foreclosures are also known as Bank Owned Properties. This usually occurs when a home owner is not able to keep up with the monthly mortgage payments and the home is not being paid off as it should. The bank takes the home back and sells it through an agency / broker /agent as a foreclosure.
Stages Of Foreclosure Process Pre-foreclosure: Homeowners fail to pay their mortgages for a period of three to six months, during which time they are issued a warning from the lender to pay up (within three months) or lose their home. At this early stage in the game, homeowners have several options by which to delay or prevent losing their home.
Auction stage: If homeowners are financially unable to meet their debts and/or fail to heed the bank's warning, they are evicted from their property, which the bank auctions off to the highest bidder.
Foreclosure: If the property is not sold at auction, the home goes back on the market as a bank-owned property (typically at below market value prices).
-The Association of Realtors definition is: A foreclosure is when the bank has taken action to foreclose on the property. In some states this may include judicial action. The “trustee” steps in and the property is scheduled for auction at the courthouse.
-The Merriam-Webster.com dictionary definition is: fore·clo·sure-noun \-'klo-zh?r\Definition of FORECLOSURE: an act or instance of foreclosing; specifically : a legal proceeding that bars or extinguishes a mortgagor's right of redeeming a mortgaged estate. HomePath.com is the Official foreclosure website owned by Fannie Mae.
"Do I have to put 20% down to avoid monthly PMI"? The answer is NO!
Let's start with PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) itself. What is it? PMI is insurance that protects the bank in the event you, the home buyer, forecloses or fails to make timely payments. PMI is an additional monthly add on that benefits the bank.
Most lenders now offer loan products with NO monthly PMI. This is typically called ‘LPMI’. Lender paid mortgage insurance. These loans are great for borrowers who want to put less than 20% down and do not want the monthly add on of PMI. This product is available with as little as 3% down BUT requires very strong credit scores.
Most borrowers today are looking at options with 5-10% down. The PMI is still there in essence, it is just built into the interest rate versus a monthly PMI fee. For example you might put 10% down and take a rate of 4.5% 30 year fixed with a monthly PMI OR you could take a rate of 4.75% and NO monthly PMI.
While the interest rate is higher your overall monthly payment will be lower.
Every customer is unique…so talk to your lender before making any decisions and have them run some break even analysis for you on the options. The loan size and your long term goals can impact which programs and products make the most sense for you!

Norcross is Gwinnett County's second oldest city and has played many roles in local history and development. Georgia's first rail tracks were laid in the mid-1830's, and during the years of post-Civil War Reconstruction, rail expansion led to town expansion. In 1869, Atlanta entrepreneur J.J. Thrasher purchased 250 acres around the first stop north along the proposed Richmond Danville lines, and a year later, the area was incorporated.
Four settlements, Pinckneyville, Flint Hill, Beaver Ruin, and Mechanicsville, fed into the new town of Norcross, established by Jonathan Thrasher, a railroad man, who named the new town for his good friend, Jonathan Norcross, a business associate and the fourth mayor of Atlanta. Just twenty miles north of Atlanta, the City of Norcross, incorporated on October 26, 1870, was a popular business center attracting farmers to the mills as well as a resort town to which Atlanta's elite escaped the dust of the big city.
Today, Norcross has the distinction of being the only location in Gwinnett County to have a district listed in the U.S. Register of Historic Places. In 1987, to enhance the historic district, the city council dedicated about $250,000 to the renovation of the downtown area. Turn-of-the-century street lighting now welcomes visitors and residents alike to beautiful tree-lined streets and brick sidewalks throughout the downtown area.
