USAA Real Estate Rebate Discontinued

On September 6th 2019, USAA discontinued their home buyer rebate program by posting the following announcement on their website.

Real Estate Rewards Network

Important Notice
The USAA real estate rewards network is no longer available.

What's Happening
USAA Federal Saving Bank has discontinued the Real Estate Rewards Network.  The real estate industry is constantly changing, and we're focusing our efforts on improving our suite of mortgage products.

I, for one, am seriously happy to see that USAA will be focusing on the quality of their mortgage processing which is severely lacking (at least in our area).  As mentioned in a blog I wrote a long time ago, the  discontinued program was designed to pad USAA's pockets, not the Veteran's.  So I'm not at all sad to see it go.  But we know Veteran buyer's sometimes need a little extra help.  The Roskelly Team is working on a rebate program for our Veteran home buyers and we'll post more information soon.

Until then, if you're in the market to buy a home near Fort Meade, we'd love it if you'd start your search with us.  Our team of Veteran's, Mil Spouses, and BRAT's would love to got to work for you to make finding or selling your Fort Meade area home the easiest part of your move!

New HUD rules for FHA condo loans to benefit Fort Meade area home buyers


hud logo

FHA just released some new financing guidelines that will assist condo home buyers in the Fort Meade real estate market.

To understand the impact of this change you'll need to understand that, prior to this, FHA required a community review and certification of every condo association in the US.  They are looking for things like condo financial health, investor ratios (too many non-owner occupied units could), delinquency rates and more. They required that each condo association request renewal every two years.  So, if the condo association did not do it's job and get their community approved, FHA home buyers were not allowed to obtain financing in that community.  Many Fort Meade home buyers own homes near previous duty stations and if the VA loan benefit is used, FHA is the next best option for a loan.

The recent changes which have long been advocated by the National Association of Realtors include the following:

1.     Allows for a single-unit approval process for properties that do not currently have FHA approval.
2.     Extends the re-certification date from 2 years to 3 years.  
3.     Allows more mixed use projects to be eligible for FHA loans
