Painless refi without an appraisal.

If you bought or refinanced a home with an FHA loan before spring 2009, you could take advantage of the painless, appraisal-free refinance!

Oklahoma City leading the US out of recession

9 01 2012

High fives all around!  You’ve done it again, Oklahoma!

US News and World Report named Oklahoma City and Tulsa the #1 and #3 cities in the US that are leading the nation out of the recession.  What does this mean?  It means we’ve got JOBS, baby!  It means we have affordable houses.  It means we have a thriving local economy.  It means that our thriving local economy provides money to improve our city and create more jobs.

It means that you need to move here. 

Here’s the article for those of you who like to see who we beat.  And please contact me when you’re ready to see if the grass really is greener in the Heartland.

Where will you be in 15 years?

3 01 2012

How about debt-free?

The average American who starts a 30 year mortgage pays it off in 37 years.  The average American on a 15 year mortgage pays it off in 8 years.

Are you above average?

If so, let’s talk.  I’d like to help you save tens of thousands of dollars on your home.

How to save an additional $150,000 on your home:

30 12 2011

Small step #2.

So you own a home– congratulations!  You’re decades ahead of the average renter and are on the path to win.

Over time, your income will likely increase, and your current debts will decrease.  This can help you make the second small step towards financial freedom: The short-term mortgage.

By refinancing to a 15 year mortgage, your interest rate will usually be 1-3% less than your current 30 year rate.  Also, every dollar you spend gives you the same result as $3 towards a 30 year mortgage.  And in the first 12 months of a 15 year loan, you will build more equity than 4 years of payments on your 30 year loan.

Imagine you’re driving to your beach vacation and you could take a route that would get you to the same destination, but in half the time with only 1/3 of the costs, giving you an extra week of time on the beach.  The catch is you’d have to give up two McDonald’s meals on the trip to enjoy an extra week in paradise.  Which route would you choose?

When you’re ready to make a choice to save more money on your home, I’m ready to help.  Please contact me for a personal savings report, to see how much extra time on the beach you’ll get.

And if you can only afford your current monthly payment, we can usually still save you 1% and a decade of payments with a 20 year loan.  So please reach out to me to see how much you’ll save.

As always, I’m here to help.

Sincerely,

Wilhelm Koenig

How to get $1/2 Million Dollars Ahead.

27 12 2011

Small steps for big results.

In life, there are a few small actions that you can do that will have a tremendous benefit for you.  The biggest is to start and grow your own successful business.  But whether you’re an entrepreneur or not, everyone needs a roof over their head.  And how you finance that roof can put over $500,000 in your pocket or someone else’s.

The average renter in Oklahoma pays about $750 per month in rent.  Property values and rent typically rise about 3% per year in Oklahoma, and over the 30 years that typically make up your working life, you would have spent $435,019 in rent, and have not even on cent of equity.  That’s what I call a terrible deal.

By buying a home with a similar monthly payment, not only would you own a paid-for home worth $327,680, but you would have saved $53,640 on your taxes as well.  By year five in your home, you would have received more back on your tax returns than you put down for the down payment.  The IRS pays you back for your investment, you make the same monthly payment for a house that pays YOU back.  That’s what I call a smart deal.

Let’s look at the math:

Renting:

Costs                                             $-488,659.00

Benefits                                                      $0.00

Total                                             $-488,659.00

Owning a home:

Costs:                                            $-237,172.00

Benefits, equity                            $327,680.00

Benefits, tax savings                      $53,640.00

Total                                                $144,148.00

So you can pay almost $1/2 Million to a landlord for no benefits, or you can pay yourself and come out over $1/2 Million ahead.  It’s your choice.  And when you’re ready to make a smart choice for you, I’d like to help you.

Free in 15. . .

9 12 2011

The word “mortgage” is made up of two Latin roots: Mort, which means death, and -gage, which means grip.  So a mortgage is a deathgrip on your finances, a long-term deathgrip.

But it doesn’t have to be this way.  Just last week I was able to help another three couples slash their interest rate, lower their month payment, and start the path to paying their home off in a few short years.  In each case, the couples saved over $110,000 in interest alone.

How many more vacations could you take if your home was paid off 15 years sooner?

How much sooner could you retire if your home was paid off 15 years sooner?

Would you like to see how your life could improve?  Please call me.
