A recent article in The New York Times described how a New York man made $1.5 million in one year using a one-year, fixed mortgage.
For many, the same basic process will be familiar to anyone who has had a loan modification approved or refinanced.
But the New York process is different.
The process is much different, says Daniel Schwartz, a managing director of Schwartz Mortgage, which operates in the Big Apple.
“It’s very different than what you’re used to doing in the states, so it’s not something that’s familiar to everybody,” Schwartz said.
“There are certain things that we do that will help you make your mortgage payment, but the things that make a difference are things that aren’t explained to you in the loan agreement.”
Here are the key differences between New York and the states:The loan modification is differentIn New York, a borrower can apply for a loan reduction or modification and receive it in three different ways:You can apply to the Department of Financial Services for a $100 loan reduction; the Department can approve the modification on a case-by-case basis; and the lender will pay the loan reduction.
If you’re approved, the amount of the loan will decrease from $2,500 to $500, and the interest rate will increase from 5.95% to 10.25%.
The Department of the Treasury will also pay for the loan modification.
You will be required to pay a $2 fee and you’ll have to pay back a $250 loan repayment fee.
In New Jersey, a mortgage is made on a fixed term and can be extended on a monthly basis.
But in New Jersey borrowers must apply for an extension if they don’t meet the minimum monthly payment.
The minimum monthly payments are $3,000.
The average payment is $2.50 a month.
The application process is very differentIn both states, you can have a loan modified and then the loan can be refinanced at a reduced rate, but there are differences.
In the New Jersey loan modification process, a loan can only be refinaced once the borrower has made a minimum of $50,000 in monthly payments.
If the borrower fails to meet the required payments, they can reapply for a new loan, but it will have a lower interest rate, a lower payment, and a lower repayment period.
The amount of refinancing can be increased or decreased at any time, and there are two different repayment periods: a monthly and a yearly repayment period:In the state of New York:The term of the home loan is not reduced; you may pay an annual fee of $300; and you may also be required by the lender to repay a $150 home loan payment.
In a New Jersey mortgage modification:The borrower must make a minimum monthly of $500 in monthly repayments; and, if the borrower is in a 30-year fixed mortgage, the minimum repayment period is three years.
In both New Jersey and New York borrowers must make their loan payments, but lenders in both states may make additional payments to a borrower for outstanding debt.
In addition, borrowers in New England are able to make payments by direct deposit.
However, the deposit fee is waived for New England borrowers and the borrower must pay $50 to be eligible for this option.
