A Great Mortgage for a Home Purchase or a Refinance!

Our 3% down is lower than FHA's and you get a fantastic Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac home mortgage! Low rate & APR, 30 year term, and a fixed rate, which floats until locked. Please note that FHA as government insured loan usually has a lower interest rate, but may have a higher MI costs for those loans with less than 20% down payment. However, my lender will provide a "lender approval" and "lock your loan rate" at the same time and you shop for a home and avoid future rate hikes, while finding your new home with either home loan. However, if rates should go down when your offer is accepted you will get the lower rate. Please note that typically this type of loan is based on a 90-day lock rate, which is higher than the typical 30-day lock. A win/win/win (low down/lock & shop) for you the borrower, what is not to like. This is the Conventional 3% Down Payment - Home Possible & Home Ready Loan Programs! Lender Paid Mortgage Insurance Is Also Available. Also, we have the lowest Borrower Paid MI in the industry.

 Welcome to California Mortgage Advisor's website, your one stop source to get qualified and apply for a home loan and your souce of informtion regarding various mortgage products and loan programs available from lenders, the federal, state and local governments. We offer low and no down payment programs, with low interest rates. There is a broad spectrum of home loans, terms, and assistance options available to today's home buyer. This site is designed to help educate real estate professionals and home buyers understand the complexities of financing a home purchase. Whether they are the first time buyer or a long time real estate investor. Hopefully, it will provide some insight and guide home buyers toou the program alternative that can make their dream of home ownership a reality.

The consumer can benefit from a fuller understanding of loan programs that would allow them fto buy that perfect home at a more affordable cost. By learning about lending products that span no-money VA or USDA down to a larger down payment, the home buyer becomes better educated home owner. I will, for example, compare a 1% down, Fannie Mae conventional loan, with a bit higher interest rate, and the FHA 3.5% down payment loan, with bit lower interest rate and demostrate why the government loan may not be a better deal. The lower down payment can allow the home buyer, to purchase a more expensive home or one in a better neighborhood for same or less money down than going with FHA. Click Here or on the on the links above and explore the loan products and the assistance programs currently available to the home buyer. A few minutes of review can create a successful home buying experience and perhaps save you thousands of dollars. You will find under "Mortgage Products" the various loan programs for both purchase and refinance. With further links to specific programs, If you need tips on improving FICO scores and explaination of the new Data Trend credit evaluation. How this new Fannie Mae 2 year credit card payment history can help or hurt you in the approval process. The "Government Programs" discuss how to utilize these specialized programs. I provided links to various related government web pages where you can apply for grants and learn about other local support for the first time home buyer. The "For Real Estate Agents" has to do specifically with how the CA Mortgage Advisor can provide marketing support to you,and referral for the real estate agent. "For Home Buyer" provides you lots of detailed information on how be successful in securing a home mortgage. Suggest programs that can SAVE a lort of money in down payment, interest rates, mortgage insurance and other costs.

California Mortgage Advisor, believes that when the home buyer has better understanding of entire home buying process they have a better lending experience. By providing knowledge and insights concerning available lending products and specific assitance programs should help the home buyer, and assits the real estate agent to be a better informed service provider to his/her home buyer. Having knowledge of loan programs could create an opportunites to write an offer that would not otherwise work and/or save a deal. Understanding the programs, credit requirements provides you, the buyer with options that can make the difference in being approved or not. I believe in giving the buyer and the real estate agemt a positive home purchase experience, which brings referrals and returning customers. The home buyer will ,hopefully, gain the knowledge and insight to imagine what is possible, and how to get the best deal, saving money and getting that dream home.

I believe the better educated the client, the easier it is for real estate agent, and loan officer to serve their clients. The buyer gets the home they want and with a faster the close. So, whether your buying a jumbo property for $4,000,000.00 or a fixer-upper, starter home for under $200,000.00 there are programs available that can save you money, and provide needed rpairs. Which all makes for happier buyers and sales agents and faster closings. I am here to make the home buying experience as painless as possible, and guide the borrower through complex programs, and guidelines. I am open to answer questions, provide advice and to provide a positive home buying experience. As your personal loan officer and mortgage program expert, I am always here for you!

"We've worked with Jaren since 2003, and he has belped us and our family members get through the mortgage process many times.

He is very well versed in the mortgage process, and is very patient. He is by far the best broker we've have ever worked with, and always has his customers well being at the forefront of all that he does. To this day anytime, I have a mortgage question I ask Jaren.

I had him help my parents, and my children in financing their properties as well. Anytime any of my friends took to financing I send them to Jaren. Hands down I do not think there is a better mortgage broker than Jaren Dahlstrom."

Warning Be Aware:

Home buyers are being defrauded by hackers who impersonate real estate professionals to steal your money! 
The FBI is reporting that several people have been defrauded during the home purchase process. These criminals hack into the emails of title companies, realtors, and/or lenders, and follow a home purchase transaction. At the right moment they send a fake email to buyer and request that they wire the down payment to an account that is NOT the actual escrow account for the home purchase. The following day these criminals follow-up with another email saying: "Thank you, the money has been recieved and we will see you Friday for the closing" or something similiar. When the buyer shows up at the appointed time, they learn that the Escrow Company never got the payment and the account was not the escrow company's. The funds have been transferred out of the bogus account the home buyer wired, and money is probably in an offshore account. The crooks are long gone and so is the home buyer's money. This fraud has occured in Boston and in Tampa and California. But this can happen anywhere, and to anyone! People have lost thousands of dollars, their entire life savings and their dream home as well!

Don't let it happen to YOU! Please, before you send any money confirm the transaction by calling your escrow company directly and confirm the account you are wireing any money with actual escrow officer assigned to your home purchase. Do NOT trust an email request! Phone or visit the esrow company and be sure you speak with your Escrow Officer directly to confrim any money transfers. Do NOT trust a phone number on the email request. Make sure you are calling your actual Escrow Officer and not the number on a email making a request. If you don't know your Escrow Officer, contact your realtor or your loan officer directly. Either person can confirm the escrow phone number, escrow company and the name of the escrow officer, the address of the company and their phone number. You can also avoid the problem by hand delivering the money to the escrow company in person with a cashier check. Your Escrow Officer will always provide you a reciept proving the payment was made.

Every person and company involved in a real estate transaction must be licensed by the State of California and registered with NMLS, a U.S. federal government agency. Make sure you know who you are dealing with and check with the BRE and confirm their professional standing. Don't rely on an email alone to where to send your money, know and call your escrow/title officer, confirm any money requests and be safe. Please, always report fraud to the CA BRE or the FBI.
