Veteran’s Day 2019

When just saying THANK YOU isn’t quite enough

Today being Veteran’s Day makes it a prime opportunity for me to share briefly again about two programs available to active or retired US military that I believe a lot of veterans are unfamiliar with.

The first is our M.O.M. (Military on the Move) program.  This is a FREE REAL ESTATE REBATE program offered by JB Goodwin REALTORS, as a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, for anyone who has served in the US armed forces. Not only do we offer superior, military-specific real estate knowledge to aid with your real estate needs, we also offer you CASH BACK when we help you BUY or SELL a home.

Who qualifies?

It’s simple.  Whether you are active duty, retired, wounded warrior, or separated, if you have served any period of time in our US armed forces, we wish to thank you for your service by offering this program to you.

What are the Benefits?

  • The rebate is given to you at closing
  • No waiting for a rebate check
  • No rebate limit
  • The freedom to choose your lender

There is no gimmick.  When I help you buy or sell your home, you will receive 20% of the commission paid directly to you.  It’s not applied toward your closing costs; it’s twenty percent, paid to you at the closing and funding of your home sale or purchase, that you can use for whatever you want!

How is that for a nice closing gift?!

A second program you should know about is the AMERICA’S FINEST program which is being offered through the end of this year from one of our preferred mortgage lenders, Premier Nationwide Lending.  All active duty or retired military are eligible to take part in this program, which allows for a $500 credit toward your closing costs, whether or not you are using your VA eligibility to purchase.   It can also be used in tandem with the M.O.M. program, so you don’t have to pick one or the other!  If you need more information about or would like to take advantage of this offer please reach out to me and I will happily put you in touch with a loan originator from Premier.

As always, I’d like to express my deep gratitude to all our current or former military service members (and their families) for making the sacrifices you do.  You few carry the burden for so many of us, and I’m proud to be part of a team that believes in giving back even a small part.  Please let me know if there is any way I can be of service to you.

Veteran’s Benefits

News & updates for homebuying veterans

Usually around Veteran’s Day or other patriotic holidays I like to post reminders about some of the home buying benefits or specific programs offered to our nation’s vets, or updates about same.  And then it occurred to me: why am I waiting for just those few occasions? It’s not like those are the only days our armed services members need to know this kind of stuff.  So with that thought in mind, here are a few updates on new and existing home buying programs all service members, whatever their status, should be aware of.

VA LOAN LIMIT INCREASES

The Veteran’s Administration has announced an increase of VA loan limits  to $484,350 in Texas, up from $453,100.  And just to clarify, VA loan limits are not a cap on how much an eligible veteran can borrow, but a determination how much money qualified veterans can borrow before needing to make a down payment.  Meaning VA borrowers can definitely buy a home with a pricetag higher than $484,350, but anything above that amount will require a down payment, usually about 25% of the difference between the VA loan limit and the purchase price of the home.

M.O.M. – MILITARY ON THE MOVE

Not only does JB Goodwin Realtors offer superior, military-specific real estate knowledge to aid  with your real estate needs, we also offer you CASH BACK when we help you buy or sell a home.
