Folsom, Loan Officer

James Anderson

"I’ve been in the mortgage industry for over 18 years.  Having held nearly every position in the loan process from start to finish, including executive positions, I’ve found that there is nothing more rewarding than working directly with clients to help them achieve their home financing goals.  Clear and consistent communication throughout the process as well as being available to my clients (yes, even weekends!!) has been the foundation for my success.  Navigating through the many loan choices available and the every changing guidelines can quickly become overwhelming for most.  My goal on every transaction is to educate my clients on the best options available given their scenario, navigate them through the process, establishing expectations and then surpassing those expectations in the end.  I also pride myself on being able to “run” as fast as the client wants/needs to on a transaction.  Whether it’s a standard 30 day escrow or a faster close of  escrow is needed, we outline a plan to get it done!  I look forward to being your long term mortgage professional!"

The Top Five Real Estate Myths Explained

It’s hard to forget the effect the real estate market crash had on many people during the recession, which is why so many myths and rumors continue to permeate this industry. Interested home shoppers tend to buy into five top myths, but if you dig a little deeper, you will quickly realize that there isn’t much truth to these rumors. Here, we explain the top five real estate myths!
Find a Fixed Mortgage: One of the biggest issues during the economic downturn was willy-nilly lending practices that included adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs). Buyers were enticed into a super low interest rate that would later adjust into something they could never afford. That’s why so many people are preoccupied with fixed-rate mortgages. According to David Reiss, a professor at Brooklyn Law School who specializes in real estate: “The necessity of getting a 30-year fixed rate mortgage is one of the biggest myths about home buying. The average American household stays in their home for about seven years. Typically, 30-year fixed rate mortgages have higher interest rates than adjustable rate mortgages (ARMs). Home buyers should take a hard look at their plans for the new home.”
Dinged Credit Will Prevent a Mortgage Approval: Buyers with less-than-perfect credit are usually hesitant to sit down with a mortgage broker and discuss their options because they’re confident the answer will be a resounding: “NO!” Not the case though. Lenders are more willing than ever to work with interested buyers, realizing that many were hard-hit during the economic downturn in the way of job loss, foreclosure and so forth.
Don’t Start House Shopping Until You Have 20 Percent In the Bank: A 20 percent down payment became the magic number during the housing crisis, but it’s not necessarily the amount you need to purchase a new home. There are a variety of loans out there that require considerably less than 20 percent down, and speaking with a lender is the best way to apprise yourself of what’s available and what you qualify for finance-wise.
To Save Money, Forget Working With a Realtor: Unless you have your real estate license, the small amount of money you would save from eliminating a real estate agent is definitely not worth it. Real estate agents are adept at negotiating on your behalf, working through contingencies, communicating with the seller on your behalf, and working through the tall stack of paperwork that a real estate purchase requires. Plus, it’s more common than not for a seller to pay their commission anyway.
Don’t Delay, Buy Today: Frenzy is a word that many have used to describe the national real estate market in 2013. As prices pushed higher and many markets saw bidding wars, buyers were prompted off of the sidelines to get in the game. But buying a home is a big decision and you need to make sure you’re ready for the commitment. Just because everyone else is buying does not mean that today is the right time for you.

Mortgage rates, stock market, economy

We closed the week with very disappoint- ing results for the underlying financial instruments that dictate home loan rate

financial markets. The stock markets were not really overjoyed at the Fed’s newly stated position. Stock prices fell after peaking at new record highs for a few of the primary stock indices earlier in the week.

levels, the delivery rate (DR), in spite of a paucity of meaningful econonews releases.

Some of the econonews releases of this past week included September pending home sales falling by 5.6% relative to August. Not a good omen for the fu- ture of home sales. The Case-Shiller home price index reflected a slowing of the pace of price appreciation.

Typically we see home loan rates and bond yields rise when there is favorable indications that the economy is expanding more rapidly and/or there is an increased potential for unacceptable levels of inflation making its way into the economy. We did have
one report that suggested consumers’
expectations for inflation in the future
was higher, but that was nothing more
than a footnote in one release.

Retails sales for September fell by 1/10% and this is worrying retail organizations for the upcoming holiday shopping season. Inflation on the wholesale and manufacturing levels fell by 1/10% while consumer level inflation rose by 2/10% with the core rate up only 1/10% allevi- ating some of the market’s inflation concerns.

We are nowhere close to unac-
ceptable levels of inflation within the
economy. Beyond that, the Fed even
said in their press release this past week
(after their monetary policy meetings)
that they are willing to raise their ac-
ceptable inflation level temporarily as
the economy needs some stimulus to get back on track The stimulus we are referring to is the Fed’s monthl purchase of $85 billion of US Treasury instrument and mortgage-backed securities (MBS-the stuff tha determines the DR).

Initial claims for jobless ben- efits came in higher than expected while ADP job creation figures were less than expected. Of course with numbers like these and the government shutdown it should come as no surprise that consumer confidence has been badly shaken and it plummeted for October. All the news should have pushed rates

The universal reaction of the Fed suggestin higher inflation levels, for whatever reason, was ba for the potential consequences for the long-term infla tion paradigm, or so the markets believed. We do no subscribe to that perspective, but we do not control th

lower, but it didn’t.
Looking ahead to the upcoming week we see

enough fundamental data to turn the tide back in the direction of a downward glide path for home loan rates, but... Stay tuned.

We are seeing a surge of private capital coming into the housing sector. This is a great turn of events.

Advance Planning Can Help Relieve the Worries of Alzheimer’s Disease

Advance Planning Can Help Relieve the Worries of Alzheimer’s Disease

The “ostrich syndrome” is part of human nature; it’s unpleasant to observe that which frightens us.  However, pulling our heads from the sand and making preparations for frightening possibilities can provide significant emotional and psychological relief from fear.

When it comes to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, more Americans fear being unable to care for themselves and burdening others with their care than they fear the actual loss of memory.  This data comes from an October 2012 study by Home Instead Senior Care, in which 68 percent of 1,200 survey respondents ranked fear of incapacity higher than the fear of lost memories (32 percent).

Advance planning for incapacity is a legal process that can lessen the fear that you may become a burden to your loved ones later in life.

What is advance planning for incapacity?
Under the American legal system, competent adults can make their own legally binding arrangements for future health care and financial decisions.  Adults can also take steps to organize their finances to increase their likelihood of eligibility for federal aid programs in the event they become incapacitated due to Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.

The individual components of advance incapacity planning interconnect with one another, and most experts recommend seeking advice from a qualified estate planning or elder law attorney.

What are the steps of advance planning for incapacity?

Depending on your unique circumstances, planning for incapacity may include additional steps beyond those listed below.  This is one of the reasons experts recommend consulting a knowledgeable elder law lawyer with experience in your state.
  1. Write a health care directive, or living will.  Your living will describes your preferences regarding end of life care, resuscitation, and hospice care.  After you have written and signed the directive, make sure to file copies with your health care providers.
  2. Write a health care power of attorney.  A health care power of attorney form designates another person to make health care decisions on your behalf should you become incapacitated and unable to make decisions for yourself.  You may be able to designate your health care power of attorney in your health care directive document, or you may need to complete a separate form.  File copies of this form with your doctors and hospitals, and give a copy to the person or persons whom you have designated.
  3. Write a financial power of attorney.  Like a health care power of attorney, a financial power of attorney assigns another person the right to make financial decisions on your behalf in the event of incapacity.  The power of attorney can be temporary or permanent, depending on your wishes.  File copies of this form with all your financial institutions and give copies to the people you designate to act on your behalf.
  4. Plan in advance for Medicaid eligibility.  Long-term care payment assistance is among the most important Medicaid benefits.  To qualify for Medicaid, you must have limited assets.  To reduce the likelihood of ineligibility, you can use certain legal procedures, like trusts, to distribute your assets in a way that they will not interfere with your eligibility.  The elder law attorney you consult with regarding Medicaid eligibility planning can also advise you on Medicaid copayment planning and Medicaid estate recovery planning.
