Ever wonder how your interest rate could affect your monthly mortgage payment? Take a look at this table! Call me if you want to discuss our “Lock and Shop” program to lock in your rates before they get higher

“I just got a 15 year quote for 1.875% from (an online lender), are you able to match that?” I told them to get me cost sheet from the other lender and I will see what I can do to match it. The first thing I noticed was their underwriting fee is $1950. Ours is less than half that. The other thing I noticed was they were paying over $4000 is discount points, which a fee many people take advantage of to get a lower interest rate. They didn’t understand the concept of a discount point. After I explained the concept of a discount point, I told him I could offer that same rate for much less than $4000.

I recommend all buyers, even the ones working with me, to do a little shopping to see what is the best offer out there. I strongly recommend you find a lender that you trust and that will give you the information as straight forward as possible. 1.875% will make any buyer excited to lock in that rate! The question is, do you know the costs you are accruing to get that rate?

I found this “Barely Map” and find it hilarious. You can purchase this in the link below. I think my favorite intersection is Saddle Creek, Cuming, and NW Radial.

Are they missing any intersections?

Have you guys been to Meatball in Blackstone? I have been there a few times before COVID times and loved having their Bloody Mary and little meatball snack.

I had an event this weekend and had Meatball supply the food. It is amazing all the different types of meatballs and sauces they have. Best part about it? I realized I was a little short when I came to pick up the food and they whipped up more food in less than 10 minutes for me to take.

I am excited to announce I have accepted a new job with First National Bank of Omaha! I will now be able to help anyone in the Omaha and Kansas City areas, which is a big step for me. Hopefully I will be able to get out a little more and continue posting local businesses again. But until then, here is a picture of Henry showing his excitement.

Consider this my first real Real Estate post since I created this page. I know many people think to themselves “why should I hire a realtor? I can sell my house by myself and I don’t need to pay a commission to anyone.” In the environment we are in, I am willing to bet that you can get an accepted offer on your house. But I am also willing to bet that you wouldn’t get as high of an offer if you don’t use a realtor.

Without getting into numbers, Erin and I always joked around if someone offered us $###x to buy our home, we will move tomorrow. Well it finally came time for us to put our house on the market and we were always going to use a realtor to list our house. Using the sales strategy and marketing system our realtors use, we accepted an offer that would net us more money, after paying the realtors their commissions, than if we were to have accepted that $###x dollar amount and sold it ourselves. Not only that, I now do not have to deal with letting in an inspection company, termite company, appraisal company, etc.

When it comes to buying or selling a home, it’s a necessity to hire a realtor to help you. The realtors that helped me was The Corky Grimes Group

When you have an important zoom call with borrowers you have never met before.

Maybe with the quaren-tee gone, the actual quarantine will be lifted?

I think many of you know that we gave birth to our son last Wednesday. My folks and family wanted to quickly decorate our house(with whatever they could find around their houses) since they were not able to visit us at the hospital. My dad called SignIt Omaha got this sign made for us. What’s very cool is that we did not know gender or name, and signit was able to produce this sign that same morning so my dad could stick it in the yard. This sign is a keep-sake in our family now.

Not sure if it’s even legal, but very pregnant Erin is here at Hardy Coffee Co trying earn free tacos for her “knowledge” of the mortgage world. I guess she’ll have to settle for their top notch coffee and homemade cinnamon rolls. We’ve been coming since they provided us our wedding cake 4 years ago.

Erin and I like to go to a local coffee shop about once a weekend. ROAST Coffeehouse in Aksarben is one of our favorite places to go. It is nice when they have live music playing like they did on Sunday when we went. Erin made me take a picture to prove to the FB world I actually go to places I say.

Anyone else been here? Any other coffee shop we should look at?

When interest rates drop, like they have been for the last couple of weeks, I receive calls, texts, and emails endlessly asking if a refinance would be a smart thing for people to do. It is never as easy as "my current interest rate is 3.5% and I could get a 3.125% with a refinance today." We need to look at your future goals when considering if a refinance is truly right for you. First and foremost, how much longer do you plan on staying in your home? If it is less than two years, I rarely suggest a refinance is your best option. If this is your Forever Home, even a .25% decrease in interest rate could say you thousands of dollars. Many people take advantage of the low rates and maybe refinance into a 15 year from the 30 year mortgage. In some cases, their new monthly payment stayed very close to their old monthly payment and we just trimmed a few years off of their term.

I would welcome the opportunity to see if a refinance is best for you and your family. Please get a hold of me any way you want and we can look into your specific situation

Anyone who knows me knows that soccer is a big part of my life. I still try to play as much as I can, at one point it was four times in a week 😬. My two favorite places to play are Off The Wall Indoor Soccer Facility and Omaha Indoor Soccer Center Leagues. Both facailities have great leagues for Men and Co-ed and they also have great areas if you wanted to rent for a party or get together. Would be more than happy to make an introduction if anyone is looking for a league to play or a great area for the kids to run around

Just a reminder to the men out there that Valentine's Day is tomorrow. Erin and I have a tradition on Valentine's Day where we buy a nice steak and bottle of wine and cook at home. This tradition mostly started because I was a poor college student and couldn't afford two meals at Outback Steakhouse.... But enough about me.... The last few years we have been getting our steaks from Wohlner's Neighborhood Grocery and Deli. If you have not stopped by their butcher, you are truly missing out.

I am starting a new Facebook business page, and I know how much people love to follow new business pages. I am going to have fun with it and have more community involvement. Do not expect weekly rate updates, monthly mortgage insights, or every new listing in Omaha. I will sprinkle in a few real estate posts but will keep this page fun and more Omaha related. Please 'Like' the page if you are inclined, I appreciate all of my past customers and all the realtors who trust me with their buyers

So we said 2019 will be the last time we have a refinance "boom." Looks like 2020 begs to differ.
