As interest rates increase for home buyers, not only does the monthly payment go up, but so does the amount of income needed to qualify to purchase a home.
Video #3 in The Real Estate Mama's San Diego Real Estate 411 series discusses how homeowners can use their current equity to perform a move-up buy! Mike Rafii, Home Loan Adviser with The Rafii Group at Bay Equity Home Loans, makes a guest appearance.
"Celeste was a trooper for us and our best asset in the sale of our condo. We were an out-of-state landlord owner and she went above and beyond her normal job description to make sure our place was taken care of and sold. When we weren't able to be on site she was. She helped us oversee our tenants leaving the property and construction crews working on scheduled repairs prior to our sale. She also worked with the HOA on our behalf paving the way for escrow to close. I can't say enough about Celeste's problem solving skills as we ran into a few stumbling blocks on the lender side. She got it done professionally and showed the place to prospective buyers in less than ideal circumstances. She basically took charge of everything and made me feel very secure in her abilities. I would recommend her to anyone."
