The lender is allowed to accumulate a borrower's payments up to a two-month advance cushion at the end of a year. But if a surplus develops beyond this amount, the borrower is now entitled to an immediate refund unless the surplus is less than $50. These rules apply to new loans.

Real Estate Tips
Cosmetic Improvements >Sunshine Sells
When your home is being shown, you want prospective buyers to feel good as soon as they step into the living room. It pays to give special attention to maximizing the amount of light in your home because dark homes are depressing to many people. When prospective buyers give real estate agents feedback on the homes that we show, they often cite a light, airy feeling as a major attraction.
Begin your preparation for showing your home by cleaning the windows and curtains thoroughly. Open the drapes and blinds to let the sunshine in. Even on a bright day it helps to turn on some lights in the main rooms of the house. If you are using shades or heavy drapes to eliminate a less-than-perfect view, you may want to consider replacing them with translucent curtains in a light color. Sunshine definitely helps to sell homes!
