    What we know to a certainty is that someone estimated the market value in January to be $375K and that the actual market value was established by you 7 months later at $280K.

    Why do you think, given the above, the January valuation has any relevance at all?

  • Yossarian replied to the topic Whats your experience in obtaining finance. in the forum Finance 11 years, 3 months ago

    Oddly enough, credit scoring is entirely rational, which is why it works.

    Certain variables, alone or in concert with others, prove to be reliable predictors of  a loan defaulting. They change and are changed over time but the bottom line is they are better at predicting default than people are.

    Telephone numbers are a case in point.…[Read more]

    Paid $280K.
    Minor reno.
    Values up at $320K

    Doesn't seem unreasonable to me.

    It's always worth noting that the value you NEED has no bearing on the value IT IS.

    Just sayin'

    Short version: I’ve been trying – with limited success – to game the system around valuations and thought a barely coherent rant would make me feel better.

  • Yossarian replied to the topic Accessing equity after buying BMV in the forum Finance 11 years, 10 months ago

    Your first paragraph is wrong.

    Your second and third paragraphs appear to suggest the amount represented in the contract for sale is not the genuine amount of the sale. Can you explain how this is not an obvious attempt to misrepresent the transaction to the lender.

    Michael,

    You are endeavouring to pass yourself off as an expert in a field you clearly have limited knowledge of.

    Exit fees are what the legislation say they are. No more. No less.

    I hope you are not taking money from people in return for your “services” as they will clearly lose their money.

  • Yossarian replied to the topic Mortgage break cost nullification – When? in the forum Help Needed! 13 years, 2 months ago

    Worth remembering:

    It isn’t retrospective and only applies to new loans from 1 July.
    It doesn’t apply to economic loss associated with breaking a fixed rate

    Hi Yoss, I think it's getting a bit off the topic re who was in the crowd / who was on the field – the post relates to an article on risk grading by the banks.

  • Yossarian replied to the topic Home approval Query… in the forum Help Needed! 14 years, 4 months ago

    Your bank's issue is that they haven't "declined" finance. I presume they are happy to do it at 85% with LMI, so I can understand their reluctance to put something in writing to suggest otherwise.
