I'm attending the real estate brokers' class at the Iowa Association of Realtors and the teacher has just written a book on mortgage fraud. One thing she's made very clear is never to use two agreements to buy a house. Some real estate agents have recommended the buyer and seller enter into a separate agreement for purchasing personal property, but apparently the lenders find this fraudulent. If you're going to purchase a house or condo and you want the flat screen TV just add it to the addendum at the bottom of the purchase agreement and take you lumps with the loan qualification.
Here are today's stories from the Mortgage Fraud Blog.
