How To Get USDA Home Loans New York & Other States

These loans greatly help households with low-to-average income to acquire their own homes because they do not require a down payment. This could be a very good option for you to finally own a house.

There is one limitation to trying to get USDA home loans, though. They are only open for houses within Department of Agriculture-defined “rural areas”. If you’re planning to move to New York or Hawaii, which are both states that can be called urban at first glance, you can still get USDA Home Loans New York or Hawaii. Why is this? Let’s first understand better what USDA Home Loans are.

USDA’s Definition of Rural Area

Researchers and policy officials have varying definitions of urban and rural areas. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) on the other hand, surprisingly has a very loose definition of what is takes for an area to be rural. According to the department, rural areas are defined as “open country and not part of urban areas”. This is already an updated and broad definition of rural areas within the country. So, there is no need for you to worry as generally urban states can still have rural parts in them wherein you can find a USDA-loanable home.

How do I qualify for this loan?

Whether applicants are looking to move in a more urban state such as Hawaii, they could still apply for USDA Home Loans Hawaii. But how do I know if I qualify? Here are the following eligibility criteria:
S. citizenship or legal permanent residence
Applicants must be creditworthy and much be able to prove it
Applicants should have dependable and stable source of income
Applicants should be willing to repay the mortgage
Income should be equal to or less than the state’s AMI
Houses bought with USDA loans should only be used for primary residence
In addition to all these qualifications previous mentioned, there are credit requirements that applicants need to prepare for. Lenders usually review applicant credit in order to fully gauge how much trust they could give them to approve them of borrowing money. These are the other credit-related items to be reviewed by your lender.

Credit score
Repayment patterns
Length of credit history
Credit utilization
How to do I find these loans?

Whether you decide to apply for USDA Home Loans Hawaii or USDA Home Loans New York, finding a lender to help you is generally easy – just look it up online. For example: typing “USDA Home Loans” on the search bar can show hundreds of lenders to help you with your application. You can also easily talk to them, and asses their services online.

Why Is My Application For USDA Home Loans Louisiana Rejected?

then getting to know the different ways an application can be denied is a good idea. It helps you prepare for the possible hindrances you’ll encounter with your application. Knowing them in advance gives you ample time to improve upon your credit score and other requirements.

What causes USDA applications to be denied?

To help you with your research and preparation on loan application rejection, we’ve compiled a list for you. Here are the possible reasons why applications get denied.
Income and debt issues – If you have debt issues such as an undisclosed debt, you could have a hard time getting approval for your application. Unverifiable income and a household income that exceeds the state AMI can also be reasons for application denial.
Credit score change – While the USDA does not have a minimum credit score put in place, loan lenders have. Lenders usually put a minimum credit score of 640. If you have any financial activity that negatively affects your credit to the point where it hits a lower score than the required minimum, that could cause a problem.
Change in employment – A stable job or a dependable source of income is a major requirement for getting an application approved. If you lost your job, or have been laid off during the application process, lenders can count this as a reason for denial. In accordance to USDA’s requirement that the applicant’s household income must not exceed the state 115% of the state AMI, if you changed your job and got a better paycheck that allows you to exceed that limits, your application could also be denied.
A change in debt-to-income-ratio – Adding new debt to your account while also having to pay for a home lone is not a good idea. Adding new lines of debt can mean that you would have a hard time repaying the loan you took from the lenders – another cause of application denial.
Property issues – You can only purchase homes within rural areas, as defined by the requirements of USDA loans. The home purchased through USDA Home Loans California application should also be used as the applicant’s primary residence. Not adhering to those two can subject an application to be denied.
What do I do if my USDA Loan was denied?

If you had your USDA Home Loans Louisiana denied, get in touch with your lender about it. Ask them for the details as to why it was denied. There are some cases when application that were denied with automatic underwriting were still saved with manual underwriting. So, don’t lost hope. Your USDA Home Loans California application can still get approved. However, if it was denied in manual, talking to your loan officer about it is the best course of action that you can do.

Consultative Techniques For Sales & Marketing

Below I have detailed how I use consultative techniques to build relationships, sales and discover new products that lead to industry trends. My experience has proven this to be the best way to develop trust, credibility and results.

This is my business philosophy and I have presented it at National Sales Meetings as a sales and marketing training tool. It is all about earning the trust of the customer by creating success for them. People deal with those they like and trust. It is a simple concept but requires a psychological expertise that only experience can teach. Once learned, it is absolutely deadly to competition.

PREMISE & STRATEGY It is imperative in these competitive times to be able to set yourself above the pack as not just a vendor, but as a trusted partner and business consultant. People buy (long term) from those that they trust, respect and like. To build that kind of relationship you must do everything in your power to prove that you are there to ensure your customer’s success.

Consultative selling is something most have heard of. It is simply a “softer sell” approach that centers on identifying needs and getting the buyer to agree to that need and your solution. Any buyer can sense a pitch and is going to be wary of it, no matter how “soft” it is. This system differs in that you are functioning as a pure consultant to the client, partnering with them to develop trust and create success on their terms. It fosters a rock solid relationship between you and the customer. If the solution to their need does not exist with your company, go to corporate to create it. Show the customer that you are there to serve their needs, not yours. Trust me, if you do this the payoffs are well worth it.

Create Trust You must take a true consultative approach and concentrate on uncovering needs, providing solutions and adding value to your customer’s business through your relationship with them. This means taking a seat on their side of the desk, seeing things through their eyes and partnering with them to develop a long-term growth plan. Treat their business as if it were your own. If you say you will follow up on something, do so promptly. Email thank you notes after appointments. Earn their trust and respect.

Ask probing questions and listen proactively because needs are often implied rather than expressed. Your customer will be very pleased and surprised when you identify an unspoken need because you listened with an intuitive ear. They will wonder why other vendors aren’t as insightful. As you begin to work on solutions together, they will see the value you bring to them and their business. Then the magic happens, you break into their “trust zone”.

Become the “Value Proposition” They may even try to buy from you at this point. If the product really suits their needs, fine. If not, discourage that action and explain why. This is your opportunity to earn everlasting trust and respect. Think of their perception of that action. A salesman discouraging a sale? There could only be one reason for that, the guy is the real deal. He is truly here to help me. You have just earned trust. Never betray it. Don’t be in a hurry to sell things. Instead, sell yourself and the value you bring to the relationship. Become the value proposition to the customer.

Now you have real credibility. You have earned their trust and they are comfortable with your counsel. You did not start off by trying to sell product, you sold yourself. You partnered with them, identifying needs and providing solutions to help their business grow. Closing now becomes welcomed advice from a trusted consultant and friend. They are anxious for your recommendations. What a difference! By putting the relationship before the sale, you have guaranteed the sale. In all probability, you have also created a customer for life.

The beauty of this approach is that it is win/win. It is low key, consultative, provides solutions and adds value (you) to the customer. It enables a solid foundation of trust, credibility and creates a long-term relationship that pays big dividends. You are now much more than a vendor. You are a trusted and valued business partner.

While the system is relatively simple to apply to any account, as with many things, one cannot judge a book by its cover. It requires a subtle psychology that only experience can teach. For instance, you must know when to listen and when to talk, when to be aggressive and when to be laid back. These are the nuances that can make or break the “connection” with the buyer. However, once mastered, it provides you with many advantages over the competition.

The Benefits Some of the important benefits of the system are that you now can stop by most accounts unannounced and be welcomed. You have access to free focus group studies. You have an inside track to competitive and important marketing information. It also creates a hedge against competition. You have earned your way into the “inner circle” with top management of the account.

The Value of Asking, “What If”…… You are now a trusted consultant and business partner, the value proposition to the account……the reason they do business with your company rather than with a multitude of competitors. Now begins the real payoff. Asking, “What if”………… Because of the stature you now hold with the account, you will surely get some very enlightening information as a result of asking that question. It puts you in the perfect position to conduct focus group studies about ideas you may have about improving business, new products, etc. For instance, you have a very big customer who is very influential in the industry. You have a great idea for a new product/program. You ask, “John, what if we were to do this or that, would that be something you could use? Share your thoughts and suggestions”.

Given your relationship, “John” is going to be more than happy to let you know what he thinks of your idea and share some of his own. This is the whole point of developing the relationship to such a high level of trust. “John” will see that you are trying to find ways to create success for him and be appreciative of that. Your bond is now that much closer.

Of most importance, within these answers lie the key to new products, programs and industry trends. So simple, yet so effective. Do this with every customer and you cannot go wrong.

SUMMARY I have proven its effectiveness on many occasions, given presentations about it at National Sales Meetings and used it to train both direct and indirect sales personnel. This approach works for all customers, large and small, regardless of the product involved. It is classic, old school and deadly to the competition.

Innovation, creativity and finding new solutions to old problems are my strengths. These solutions not only address the present, but are designed to evolve and set the stage for future growth. The goal is to create a steady stream of fresh product/sales strategies that align with corporate objectives, maximize revenues and keep competition off balance.

Using this strategy in tandem with consultative techniques, I have been responsible for products and programs that had industry-wide effect and created very profitable new platforms for growth. I am confident in my ability to achieve similar results for any company.

BEFORE You Feng Shui – Things you MUST know before a Feng Shui Consultation

Feng Shui is a Healing art. It is meant to inspire, transform, help and assist out clients to achieve their goals. I don’t believe it was ever intended to instill fear, make people uncomfortable in their own homes or worry about changes they make. And yet, that is exactly what I have been seeing lately.

A case in point: On a recent visit to a client I was dismayed to enter a beautiful condo unit and find complete and utter lack of attention to the home. By lack of attention, it had clearly not been cleaned in a very long time as the grime was built up on everything; the entire unit was cluttered with things lining both the furniture and couches. The kitchen went unused and it was almost impossible to step into the bedroom due to the clothes and debris all over the floor. Something had gone horribly wrong and we cleared off a space on the floor to sit and discuss her life and issues.

She was an intelligent, beautiful accomplished person who had previously been both a model and a singer in a band and was now on disability due to a recent accident. She told me that several years ago she still hadn’t found the right partner and had called a Feng Shui consultant for some help and advice on her relationship issues. The consultant pointed out problem after problem with the layout of her home, with her bathroom, with the direction of the front door—-the list goes on. In short, she was told by the consultant to move, that this previously lovely condo would never support her nor would she ever have good luck while she lived there.

Flash forward to today and my visit. She had given up she said; what was the point? She did not have the money to move and truly believed there was nothing she could do to help enhance her life. Powerful and absolutely devastating words from someone she went to for advice and inspiration. Now her mindset was and had been misery. She no longer had friends over, certainly had not even opened herself up to the possibility of a relationship and was having a series of misfortunate “accidents.” She had given up on her home and her life.

Trying to change her mindset after so many years was a daunting task. I showed her all the good points in her home and gave her easy, inexpensive things she could do to change the energy, starting with cleaning up and getting rid of the clutter. I addressed each room with a positive point of view and if something wasn’t “politically” Feng Shui correct, showed her simple things to change it.

Sadly, I have been seeing this more and more in my consultations. While I truly believe in the many methods to use Feng Shui, I am always mindful to do no harm. In someone’s home or in their Mind. Yet I am finding client after client who has been told their front door faced the “wrong” direction, the steps in the center of the home would mean constant health issues and everything negative while only providing their clients with expensive methods such as renovations or telling them the house will never support them at all.

I visit Real Estate offices quite frequently to speak on Feng Shui and Home Staging and honestly there hasn’t been one I have been in that wanted to work with a Feng Shui Consultant. Why? For one thing, Feng Shui Consultants never seem to find the “perfect” home for their client; sometimes it’s the numbers on the door, sometimes it a misplaced bathroom, sometimes there is a “negative” space and a complete area of the house is missing. Feng Shui consultants, I am told, point out only negative issues.

I am grateful that I attended classes in Feng Shui by such a wide spectrum of the very best teachers and mentors in the field who were able to provide me with a variety of inexpensive and easy to implement “cures” for all these problems. When we look at a space, we see it through what is called “Feng Shui Eyes” but these eyes can be positive in nature and instead, show a person or family how the home will support them and how to “fix” a missing piece, show them the positive aspects of the front door and how to look at Feng Shui through a positive perspective.

We were taught to be healers in every aspect of the word; we are often challenged ourselves with clients who are so hurt and worried about homes they have been told can’t be fixed, that will never support them that their lives have changed so dramatically in a downward spiral.

Look for a Feng Shui Consultant to inspire you, give you the positive, use the beautiful transcendental cures and blessings and simple and inexpensive methods to change your environment for a more beneficial flow of energy. We are, as the wonderful Pamela Laurance inspired in us every day, to be Mindful, to help, to heal, to transform.

Certainly, finding a consultant who has been well trained in a variety of methods and practices from a positive point of view won’t get you “stuck” in believing you need expensive renovations or that it’s time to move. They are the ones that will be able to transform, to help and heal and inspire. The positive aspects you put into your thoughts are, ultimately, what will provide you with exactly what you are seeking in every area of your life.
