    Thank you Sir! Jon’s team devoted to our Baseops loans has been doing a fantastic job! Bri is incredibly knowledgeable and she’s always ready to fight for our clients! It’s a great time to get a mortgage with rates dropping due to the market decline. Also if you have a 4.5% rate or above you should consider seeing if a refi makes sense. Yesterday we started seeing 3.875% no points on 30yr VAs. We’re still sitting .375-.5% below all the big names doing VA loans. Cheers!

    Just letting you guys know that the VA just announced the increase in the loan limit to $484,350 for any loan closing after 1 Jan '19 that we were expecting. That's just the standard limit and many counties have higher loan limits which you can look up here: https://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/purchaseco_loan_limits.asp You can still buy above the loan limit but you need to put down 25% of the difference between the limit and the purchase price. Also, if you're looking for some simple tricks on how to get a lower interest rate check out the article Jon wrote for the Dec issue of Aero Crew News (page 24) https://www.aerocrewnews.com/acn/2018/12-ACN-Dec-2018.pdf Enjoy the holidays!

    We’d be happy to help you! We’re .5% lower than the 2 biggest VA lenders in the country when I checked their websites on Fri. Give Jon a call (850-377-1114 or jk@mythl.com) and he’ll get you pointed in the right direction. Marty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Thanks for sharing Amy! I’m sure the VA will follow suit in the new couple weeks too. In addition to raising the limit it also gives you more buying power if you need a second VA loan. For example if your first VA loan was for $200K, you will now be able to rent your first property out and get a second VA loan on a new property for up to $284,350 with zero down. Same situation but you’re buying in a high rent district and the county limit is 726k you can get a second use VA for up to 526k with zero down. If the house costs more than the entitlement you have left then you just need to put down 25% of the difference between the purchase price and the entitlement you have left. Cheers!

    DFW Realtor?

    Trident recently worked with Danny (info below). He was a good guy. It’s definitely a seller’s market so you should do good. Good luck! Let me know if I can do anything for you.

    Absolutely! Shoot Jon an email with the address (jk@mythl.com) and we’ll get it to you. Also ask a realtor for a CMA (comparative market analysis). It’s a similar product but on the realtor end of things. Between those two you should have a good idea of what to list your place for. Let me know if you need anything else.

    Hi Seth, Here are some general thoughts...call me if you want to talk specifics 850-346-0250. I'm actually in the process of building a custom home for myself in the FL Panhandle. Customer versus builder financed: Customer: You get a bank loan to buy the lot and do the construction. Most banks will try to sell you on a construction to perm loan. They will say they are easier because there is only one closing. The problem is they'll give you a crappy rate or offer you an ARM. You'd do better to just do a construction loan with them and the perm with us. It'll save you tens of thousands over the life of the loan. I can do construction to perms and I don't even recommend my own product to guys because I can see how much they'd save doing it the other way. Nice thing if you finance is you can try to have the builder let you buys the materials and then he just charges for labor an maybe a 10% fee on top of materials. You can shop around for sales and deals that a builder won't waste their time with. Also if you're planning on doing a construction to perm VA loan make sure the builder is VA financed. Lastly, make sure you write into the contract cost and time over run penalties. I've seen customer financed homes go over schedule by months and by tens of thousands of dollars. You don't want to get stuck paying more in interest because they took their sweet time. Builder financed: Nice because there are less loans and paperwork. You design the house and they build it. Then you get a normal mortgage with us as they near completion. Builders are also more careful with time/cost because they are footing the bill until closing. You probably won't be able to shop around for your own materials. Also you don't have to worry if they are VA certified or not. Downside is it'd be a custom home but probably based on some set of plans that has been built before so not totally unique. Just depends on what you're going for. Texas: You're probably tracking but Texas and the Dallas area specifically has some very high property taxes which you'll want to factor into what you can afford on a monthly payment. If you do a conventional loan with 10% we can waive your escrows for free which will lower your monthly payment and your prepaid costs at closing. You're then responsible for paying your own taxes and insurance. Hope this helps! Call me if you want to chat more! Cheers! Marty

    Thank you Sir! Glad we could help get you setup for your PCS! Jon (jk@mythl.com or 850-377-1114) is handling all our Air Force loans with the help of Lisa, Bri and Elena so everyone should get great service! Off topic: Jon just wrote a great article for Aero Crew News on pilot lending that I'm attaching. If you haven't checked out Aero Crew News and you're thinking about making the jump to the airlines it's a great read. It's geared towards regional hiring, but the contract comparison section covers both the majors and regionals. Understanding pilot contracts will make you a lot of money and get you better QOL. Here is the PDF link to the full magazine: https://www.aerocrewnews.com/acn/2018/10-ACN-Oct-2018.pdf Cheers! Marty Aero Crew News.pdf

    Couldn’t have said it better myself! Nice job! Keep an eye on the 10yr treasury bond. It’s been hitting 3.10% and this time last year it was 2.1%ish. A month ago at Trident I was doing 3.875% 30yr VAs and the bond was about 2.82%. Today I’m doing 4.25% and the bond is about 3.10%. Hope that gives you some insider info. Rates are still low from a historic perspective. Marty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Starting today Trident will give you a free AVM (automated valuation method) appraisal to help you determine what your house is worth or what a good offer range is on a place you're looking to buy. Physical appraisals are the best but cost $450-750. An AVM can get you to the 90% solution. They can even be accepted in lieu of a physical appraisal on some streamline refinances. AVMs are based on comparable sales or houses on the market in your area which is what an appraiser runs their numbers off. I think this will really help you guys out get top dollar when you sell and not get ripped off when you buy. It'll also help you to determine if you can do a cash-out refinance to pull some equity out or get your mortgage insurance removed. Happy to do this for you guys! You guys have been awesome to Trident and I always reward loyalty! Marty E-mail Jon (jk@mythl.com) with the property address and he'll shoot the AVM your way. I attached a sample AVM for you to check out. They're awesome! Sample AVM.pdf

    Thank you Sir and also thank you for making the effort to get back on baseops to post this! I’ll definitely make sure to recognize Michael and Kayla! They saved the day not me. I’m at a Navy carrier pilot convention/reunion in Reno right now with my team and the USAA rep told me he doesn’t even do his mortgages with USAA.

    Thank you Sir! Happy you got a great deal for your family and that we could play a small piece in it. It’s definitely not all about the money. We honestly love doing this...I think I’d go crazy only flying my airline schedule without Trident as my creative outlet. Marty Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    [emoji106] thank you Sir! We honestly only want the best for each of you and your families. There are too many “smoke and mirrors” in lending and some businesses exploit that. I think that’s unethical...when you reach out to my team you always get the best offer we can do right out the gate. None of this going back and forth to management after demanding you prove via a fee sheet what another lender’s offered either. I don’t even ask what another lender is offering. I’ve been seeing one lender offering higher rates to you if they know you’re not shopping around with us, but then dropping their rate if you are shopping around with us too. How is that ethical or honestly caring about you. That’s just trying to make as much money as you can, when you can and take advantage of good peoples‘ lack of experience in the loan world. We trust you and take you at your word and will give you as much as we can without going into the red right off the bat. I promise I’ll stop ranting. I’ve been a little pissed this week at some other lenders’ business practices. I hate seeing what I’d consider my “brothers and sisters” in arms getting taken advantage of. Marty
