Is there standard formula to figure out how much $$ you qualify for? No debt. Exc crdit, 40K militar

Answer

Dear Professor. I am certain I am not wasting my time with my son :-) It used to be very simple to ask others in the industry their Professional Humble opinions to give Buyers  some ideas regarding  loans. I was looking for a humble opinion guideline. But thanks again. I do have many contacts in the industry since I've been a realtor for quite some time, but thought I'd go this route before bogging down an already busy banker :-) with a bunch of questions from an eager man wanting to begin his future.~~Well, you will never find a formula for a multi-unit property because it's more complicated than that. Calculating a 2 unit is different from a 3 and 4 unit in what is required. If he's not ready to sit with a lender, you are both wasting your time~~

Answer

Thanks for the responses. A very ambitious yound soldier ready to become a landlord as well as live there. Following his parents footsteps of investing early. I really just wanted to know if there was a simple formula- Years ago they used to say- What you earn annually, multiply by 3 to get a rough idea for a SF. Just thought there was something like that for multi's. Not ready to sit down with a Lender. He wants to look, and I don't want to have him look at things he will never afford. Stationed in NC, Going to live in MA. so Trying tosimplify.

loan modification Why is there no breakdown for trial payments?

Answer

I can only offer other stories . Once you are modified the lender has now created a loan payment that includes all real estate taxes, Insurance, ( pmi if required) Principle and Interest. If these were not all in the original mortgage amount, they are now... At least that is the explanation I recieved from Bank of America
