Good lender in Columbus Ohio - Mortgage and Refinance

Good lenders are all around us! There are more than a handful in Columbus Ohio who really enjoy their job, help their clients and are great communicators.

I didn't find Marc Kade on my own. My clients found him - and I hope to keep him to recommend to more clients. 
A Big Thank You to Marc Kade at Guernsey Bank for taking such good care of my clients. They were first time home buyers with a lot of great questions. They needed a lender who could answer them and communicate as much as was needed.

I appreciate the fact that you obviously love your career. It shows :0)

The first step in buying a home is to secure the financing. If you would like to get started, contact Kemp & Co Real Estate Group at Keller Williams Capital Partners Realty. Our Lead Buyer Specialist will start you on the right path.

Green cleaning supplies - I have to try this!

That Tilex bleach stuff and Scrubbing Bubble spray is kicking out some serious fumes.

Cleaning supplies are a big budget buster in our house. Even if we were empty nesters again, the cleaning supply fumes are just plain BAD for us.

I like to find ways to save money on disposable items like cleaning supplies and at the same time feel safer and better about being green.

Here is my experiment of the day...

  • White distilled vinegar
  • Hydrogen peroxide 

I have those two ingredients! I'm going to clean something with this today and see how it works. I have been using those daily sprays that look innocent enough - on the glass shower doors.  I accidentally discovered that vinegar works on glass doors as well.

We were removing wallpaper in our bedroom and I needed to mix up a batch of hot water and vinegar to spray on the walls to help peel off the wallpaper. I didn't realize that I had put the spray bottle back in the bathroom, not realizing it was the diluted vinegar!   I sprayed it on the shower doors and remembered right away because vinegar does NOT smell like daily shower cleaner :0)   - Long story works.

Now I'll try the hydrogen peroxide with it too and see how it works! I mentioned it to my daughter who is a 28-year-old, mom of three) and she said, "Yep Saw that on Pinterest"   I should have known. We have a total of six bathrooms in our big Columbus Ohio home. Didn't plan it that way, but we are blessed to be a multi-generational household with a mother-in-law suite - so this is our reality. Ou tof curiousity, I ran a search for other homes in the area that have more than 5 bathrooms and found over 100.

Ok, on with the day!

VA loan Short Sale vs VA Loan Compromise Sale

What is the difference between a Short Sale on a VA loan vs a VA Loan Compromise Sale?

Be careful where you are reading about the information. There are "google results" that show websites with information about VA Loan Compromise Sales, but they are actually website that originate VA loans. Some sites are not government sites, so the information might not be totally accruate. 
I did some research on some of the websites that look like they are official VA loan originators - with names that would make you believe that they are official. Just be careful.
I start with the website since it is a government site.

Download the document here...

Here is my big question...What does this do to a veteran's ability to get another VA loan some day?

Do your research. The difference could be used as a reduction in your VA loan entitlement until the amount is paid off.

To connect with a Listing Agent or Buyer's Agent with VA loan transaction experience, call Kemp & Co today. We are ready to support those who serve.
