How to fact check the Internet

“Facts” pop up on the Internet and often sound like they’re from a credible source. Here’s how to check them.

Fishy headlines. Search the exact headline on Bing or Google. If it’s fake, you’ll see links disputing it. Also check Snopes.com and reported.ly.
Visit the site. Go to the source site and check the About tab. See if they’re politically biased, satirical or a fake. Reputable sites have hyperlinks to backup research. Fake sites don’t provide research and may contain spelling and grammatical errors.
Search photos and videos. Right click on the suspicious item and save it to your desktop, then drag it to the image or video search box on Google or Bing. This will verify the subject and where it’s appeared.
Check the writer. Look on their Facebook and Twitter accounts for a blue checkmark verifying occupation and identity.
Double check breaking news. These stories often misidentify people and misreport what’s going on. Find a news outlet getting reports from its own people on the scene, not from other sources, indicated by phrases like “we have reports that...” and “we’re trying to confirm...”
Correct your own mistakes. If you post something you discover is untrue, delete it, apologize and provide the facts.
Respectfully correct others. When friends or family share misinformation on social media, gently tell them where they can find the right story.
Question all political ads. Companies can have a competitor’s ad pulled and demand proof of the claims made. This doesn’t happen in political advertising, where anything can be claimed with no proof required.

Here’s to getting your facts straight, online and off, as you keep putting together your best year ever... Enjoy a great month!

Why FHA with Doug Heide and Heidesert Mortgage

For some potential homeowners, including first-time homebuyers, flexibility in mortgage options is essential to accessing homeownership. A possible option that offers that flexibility is a loan through the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).

An FHA loan offers an affordable option with some lenience on qualification terms. FHA loans are ensured by the Federal Housing Administration to support homeownership and help more people get into homes.

Features of an FHA loan can include:

• A low down payment - as little as 3.5%

• Flexible income and credit guidelines

• The ability to use down payment gifts from family members, employers or persons with whom the borrower has a long standing, close (family type) relationship

• Sellers may contribute up to six (6) percent on your closing costs, if negotiated with the seller

• Availability of different loan terms including fixed and adjustable-rate loans

• 100% financing (ask for details)

Many people think that FHA loans are exclusively for first-time buyers, but that’s not the case. There are many FHA options for repeat buyers. FHA loans are often marketed at first-time buyers because of the low down payment requirements and more flexible credit requirements.
So if you’re a first-time buyer, or a repeat buyer, thinking that homeownership is out of your reach because you have a low down payment available, think again.  Call Doug, a trusted mortgage professional to see what your options might be to fit your financial situation.

 Prepare Yourself For The Home Buying Season

The Heidesert Mortgage team is a member of the Evergreen Home Loans Family.  With over 20 years of experience in the mortgage business Doug Heide is confident that he can make your experience purchasing a home comfortable and enjoyable.  Find out how our Evergreen Security Plus Seller Guarantee™ can make your home purchase experience more enjoyable and productive.

In our current housing market, a strong offer can mean the difference between winning or losing a bidding war. As we head into home buying season and inventory becomes tighter, you’ll want to be prepared to have every advantage. You might be surprised to learn your offer could be the strongest offer on the table, even when it’s not the highest. A seller wants to be sure the buyer is ready to move and may not want to wait for another buyer to get approved or risk a loan approval falling through.

With the Evergreen Security Plus Seller Guarantee™, once you are qualified you’ll receive a fully-approved loan amount before you even find your dream home. This means you’ll have a firm, underwritten approval that’s guaranteed or we pay the seller $1000*.

Being prepared, gathering information upfront and arming yourself with the right tools can give you an edge and some peace of mind. Give us a call today for more information on how we can work together as the home buying season heats up.
