I'm a freelance artist who "specializes" in character design, though my art style falls somewhere between fantasy and manga. I'm perfectly capable of making fantastic people and creatures, though I'm certainly willing to admit I have room to improve in my artwork's style.

Sarah E. Lash, RMLO Congratulations on buying a new home! Having fun yet? Well, you would certainly like to be—but the home buying process is notoriously stressful. Not only are you dealing with issues like school districts, neighborhoods, prices and yard size—your head’s probably spinning at this point with terms like FHA, USDA, interest rates, bonds, points, jumbo, conventional, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and a host of other things that might as well just be in Latin. Oh, yes, and that bizarre acronym that nobody seems to know how to pin down—APR. Let’s take a quick tour into the world of mortgage acronyms and uncover some details about this elusive character. Chances are, you took one look at your Federal Truth-In-Lending statement that your loan officer sent you and wondered how much more confusing one document could possibly be. A jumble of dates, times, numbers, costs, and percentages doesn’t help explain much. Probably the most puzzling piece of this document was the two different “interest rates” that you saw near the top. Your loan officer may have told you that you were getting a 3.875%. Well, why then are you seeing a 3.990% APR at the top of this page? APR is entirely different from your interest rate. The letters stand for Annual Percentage Rate, and this rate is required to be disclosed alongside your interest rate. While your interest rate is part of your annual percentage rate, that’s only one piece of it. At its simplest, APR is a cost of your credit expressed as a yearly rate. Let’s say you went to get a loan from a friend for $500. You’re going to borrow the money for a year, and then pay it back. Your friend tells you that she won’t charge you any interest. You’re so excited. Since she’s such a good friend, she’s going to give you the money interest-free—but, she adds—with a $50 up front charge. That changes things. You thought at first that you were getting the money interest free. However, your friend just effectively made that $500 pretty expensive for you. So while you have a 0% interest rate—you actually have a 10% APR ($50 divided by $500). That loan that your friend is giving you is costing you 10% of the loan amount per year that you have it, even though she is not charging you anything in interest. We are including in our calculation of APR all costs of the loan, not just any interest that she would charge you. So what up-front charges are included in mortgage APR? There are a few things that would be included in that calculation. Among them are: - Any loan origination fees charged - Points charged for a specific interest rate - Broker fees - Mortgage Insurance (PMI) - Doc Prep fees - Flood Certification Any fees that would be incurred whether or not the home was purchased with cash or with a loan would not generally be included in the calculation of APR. Happy house hunting! Until next time, Sarah

I am currently a student at the Art Institute. I specialize in illustration, animation, and character modeling. Ever since I was young I was a big batman and spawn fan. I always took their comic pictures and try to re - create the image. The same thing goes for dragonball and other animated shows. I knew this is what I wanted to do as a career. I am currently a junior in college and very good at using photoshop, Illustrator, after effects, adobe products. I know how to operate with a pc and mac.
