JUMBO loans are available and at a good rate

With all the hype and bad news out there people are wondering whether they can still get a loan for JUMBO mortgages. The Answer is YES!!

My friend and business advocate Michael Tafuri says it is possible and he works for a company that specializes in nich market.

Some pointer he gave me are

April 24 2008 the rate for a loan over $1.5 million is 6.5% for a 30 year fixed.

FREE 90 LOCK

If the rate goes lower by the closing date the for $350.00 at the closing you can get the lower rate.

You never have to refinance because the loan can be modified and this is a portfolio lender

2.Destination Bathrooms a "getaway" with multiple task areas, free standing tub, multiple flat screen tv’s, wirteless internet so you don’t miss anything while bathing, primping or lounging.

3.Pet Showers. Dedicated dog showers is the emerging trend, either in a mud /utility room or garage corner or basement. Pet showers are all about covenience for both the pet and pet lover.

4. Great rooms have replaced the living room. Informal lifestyles, casual eating, cooking and living spaces are combined so family and friends can congregate together.

5. While many homes have been empty on the market Staging is the buzz word however it must be done with thought and not just left overs left behind. Neutral pallettes, personal objects, thoughtful furniture rental and something in the refrigerator says to buyer "hhmmmm" maybe someone lives here.

6. Outdoor spaces that look interior. massive soaring fireplaces of cut stone, heated flooring and walkways, entertaining sized  custom outdoor kitchens and indoor looking artwork for the outside, fabrics and finishes.

7. Green is IN!!! How green is your home? Energy friendly mechanical systems, appliances all reduce the need for fossil fuel.

8.Monitoring & Controlling hand held devices. Did you forget to turn off the coffee maker? wnat to close the blinds, turn the heat down or the air up? Ltest technology utilizes hand held devices to open/close blinds, turn on/off ights or let Fido out the elctronic door.

9.Functional outdoor space, not the appendage hanging off the building. Real Balconies with room for a grill, comfortable table and chairs. That’s what buyers are craving in outdoor space 2008
