Marc Demetriou of Residential Home Funding Corp. (RHFC) was recently featured in an article written by Ashley Tate Cooper on The Huffington Post’s website. The article, titled “It’s Harder to Divorce the House Than the Spouse!” covered a vital topic – the marital residence and who retains ownership after the divorce.
As per Ashley’s experience as a Family Law Partner at Weinberg & Cooper, LLC, in many divorces the marital residence is the single biggest asset, and often the one that causes the most friction between litigants. She met with Marc Demetriou, CLU, ChFC, Branch Manager and Mortgage Consultant at RHFC in Bloomingdale, New Jersey, in order to gain insight on his expertise in the mortgage industry. He explained, “After a divorce, there could be challenges applying for a mortgage. Most importantly is the number of months that most banks will require alimony to be received before they will count it towards total income. Most banks require 6 months of receipt but at times it is possible to get a mortgage approved with only 3 months of receipt and on a case by case basis less than 3 months of receipt.”
The article continued to give valuable insight on the multiple factors that come into play when deciding on what to do with the home during the divorce process, and answers important questions dealing with appraisal value, income, and other vital topics that may come up during negotiations.
The Huffington Post’s website receives an impressive amount of online traffic, with about 170 million site visits so far.
