Their home is also worth far more than the new mortgage that is being proposed, even with the recent down turn in property values that are plaguing the country and in particular California. The proposed improvements to their home will no doubt increase the sales value of the home should they wish to sell their home at some future date. Outstanding questions we have for this applicant include : the amount of earthquake insurance they have on the home; property insurance; confirmation of asset value of the home; cursory examination of the plans and quotes for the work they plan to have completed and confirmation of other current loans that either of them may have.
We also like the planning and the organization that this couple seems to have entered into regarding the improvements that they are contemplating. Several would fall into the maintenance category, i.e. the roof and the driveway, while the remainder are improvements which will enhance the value of the home both in terms of resale value as well as personal enjoyment. We believe this applicant will be an excellent candidate to have this mortgage refinancing application approved.

Note to Lender :: We have lived in our home for over 15 years and only have a $75,000 mortgage on the home. Actually this is the balance remaining after 15 years of payments. It is time to do some upgrades to our home. We need to replace the roof, install a new driveway, upgrade the front steps and siding as well as the landscaping. On the inside we plan to have the basement finished and also install new appliances in the kitchen. Our plans also include new cupboards and counter tops for the kitchen as well as the single bathroom. This is a lot of work and we plan to accomplish this all over the next six months in 3 stages. Stage 1 is to get the basement work completed, stage 2 will focus on the kitchen and bathroom and the last stage will be all of the outdoor work. As we mentioned earlier we have all of the plans for the landscaping, the kitchen and the basement work ready. So we think we have all of the planning work done and now need to proceed with getting some of the work completed. Your loan is required to help us accomplish this. The total refinanced loan amount will be $125,000 which is only 25% of the estimated value of the home.
