Finding that Elusive Starter Home The past few years have brought several changes in the real estate industry. The housing bust of 2006-08 led many people to either sell or walk away from their home. As the market is continuing to rebound, many investors have scooped up homes at affordable prices and are offering them as rental properties. In addition, other investors have bought homes at discounted prices with the sole intention of selling them at near-full value for a profit. So the question remains; how does a first time homebuyer find an affordable starter home? Consider a Different Location Too many times a young person or couple will buy a home in hopes of expanding their family. That leads to choosing a home that is convenient to good schools, nearby shopping and plenty of entert...

There is a frequently used quote in the movies in reference to the work performed by attorneys: “never ask a question that you don't know the answer to.” On the surface, that sounds like a contradiction. However, it means that attorneys should be well prepared about their legal opponent before entering a trial. In the same mold, home buyers should be well informed about their potential mortgage. Here are some general rules about income that can be used for USDA Home Loan program. Income has Two Sides When the USDA office reviews a borrower's application, they have two goals in mind. First, the office must determine that the total income for the household will fall within the acceptable range for USDA income guidelines. Second, the office must make a judgment to ensure the income has a ...

Most things in life come in different varieties. There are low cost blue jeans and there are jeans that cost $1,000 or more per pair. Cars can be bought for $1,000 or $200,000 depending on the buyer's ability. Loans also are offered in different varieties. For the borrower that wants the very best, the conventional mortgage is the exquisite loan.
