FHA loan questions 1 - 17 1. Are FHA loans assumable? Are FHA loans good? Are FHA loans only for first time home buyers? I have problems with both parties, one favors corporate welfare and one favors public welfare.
Republicans favor deficits when in office, but against them when the other party is in office. While Republicans and Democrats are running through the streets as if their hair is on fire, babbling over the 83billion a year in sequester cuts, the FED is quietly printing that much and more each month and has said they will do more if Washington cuts spending.
In my humble opinion the FED has been the biggest enemy to the middle class over the last 20 some years. They were both initially appointed by Republicans. I have fond memories of a Democrat, appointed by a Democrat, named Paul Volker, who thought the value of ones hard earned savings were more important than Wall Street profits.
Our cars are old, but paid for. Cut my own grass using a push mower. We bought in before prices went nuts. Pretty crappy that it seems to boil down to luck when dealing with the housing market.
Correct, buying a house in California is all about timing. And that mostly comes down to luck since nobody can predict the future. For those lucky enough to have bought in , there is a good chance you have your house paid off in full and you are living on easy street.
For those who bought ten years later in , there is a good chance your financial life is a giant mess…lost the house, bad credit, etc. The first example could lead to somebody in their 40s having a paid off house.
The second example could lead to somebody in their 40s starting from square one. That is the unfortunate reality many face. And come April 1st, when the PMI for the life of the loan takes affect for FHA buyers, the only people buying real estate will be the top 5 percent and the investors.
Real estate in California is like buying a new car to most people. In and out every 5 years…. I see this revision as a license to steal. I will fortunately not have to make a choice about participating. It also indicates that they do not have faith in the housing market — this is on the face a bet against home equity growing not just in the short term but in the long term. I think people are conditioned to just add a hundred or so to their monthly payment for PMI.
You may be right, but at bps the 3. To me, that is a shockingly high number. That to me, is still a very high number. Now that that kids leave the nest, the parents gift them one of their rental properties. Remember that the median home price in the U.
Goodbye move up buyer, for a long time. Can always go back home if you make mistakes. So possibly a lot of speculative young ones out there making high risk financial decisions. Those that luck out, are buying. It may not be mainstream, but make no mistake.
There is no shortage of real money out there. Own free and clear to get the monthly off my back. This is month two free…. Glad to hear this. Really, getting rid of the monthly payment can mean one or more thousands a month. Paying down in 13 years is well ahead of the curve. My take on Glendale is why in the heck is it that people think that paying 2 to 3 times what they have to for an asset is a good idea, inflation or not. In most cases I would hazard the inflation accrued on the leverage plan will only lead to a break even in out of pocket spent.
This is month one of being free and clear. Bought home number 1 in in Oakland Ca. Bought the home on standard 30 year but opted to make payments every 2 weeks instead of monthly. This small adjustment cut 7. It feels good not to make mortgage or vehicle payments as I enter the last years of my life. Well done Stan, and others.. What chance buyers of today at silly high prices? We shall find out.
I have talked to friends and relatives who are buying homes, and always advise them to get a 15 year mortgage. That way, the house is paid off, by the time that the kids are going off to college. After all, what is YOUR biggest expense every month? Mike—Yeah, I agree on yr fixed loan. In fact, I refinanced last year from a 30 yr fixed, with 24 years remaining, into a 15 yr fixed, knocking 9 years off the life of the loan.
When I pay my mortgage each month, there is a space to pay additional principal optional, of course. But back when rates were much higher, it made a lot more sense to do so. Not intending to diss what you chose to do however in many states you can take a 30 year loan for less cost and pay it off in 15 to 16 years pretty much the same as a 15 year loan with the added protection of lower payments should you run into a crisis. All in all though kudos to you on your good financial sense. My brother and I own our property free and clear.
It was passed down to us from WWII vet. It has been in our family 50 yrs now and we have no intention of selling. Age with free and clear mortgages? Or the type of business that produces these results? A lot of questions. The really major tax loophole for average Americans is the interest tax deduction on your home mortgage. As taxes going up, fed and state, that deduction becomes more valuable. Sure you get a few bucks thrown back at you from the federal government, but then what do you do with that money?
Have to consider comparison between itemized and standard deduction. Now that we have these low interest rates, that deduction is even less significant than before. Plus I eliminate the chains of debt. One common denominator amongst owners I work with, is that they got their foot in the door via assistance from an older family member. MANY young people get a lot of help from older relatives parents, uncles, etc. If the Dollar rises and gets stronger, housing prices will fall — as will stock prices and commodity prices, and inflation.
Why is that so bad? Why is more affordable housing, natural resources, and stocks, and food being fought so voraciously by Mister Bernanke?
