The last decade has seen the rise of cash sales. Now some believe we’re seeing the fall. Over the last decade, the portion of all-cash sales has fluctuated wildly, largely on account of the initial expansion of the housing bubble and its subsequent collapse. Looking at the graph below, generated using Redfin data, it’s easy to see that prior to the last half of 2008, cash sales typically hovered between 25 to 30 percent. However, during the housing boom, an influx of investors looking to make a quick dollar off ascending home prices began...read more

Select where you want to live. Compile a list of three or four neighborhoods you’d like to live in, taking into account items such as schools, recreational facilities, area expansion plans, and safety. Start saving.

Home owners are building net worth at a pace that is up to quadruple that of a renter. In the past 15 years, the net worth of the typical home owner has ranged between 31 and 46 times that of the net worth of the typical renter, according to the Federal Reserve’s Survey of Consumer Finances, which is based on 2013 data. On average, home owners had nearly $200,000 in net worth compared to the average $5,000 net worth of renters, according to the survey. “Home owner equity is a substantial component of home owner wealth,”...read more
Buying a home? If you are, one of the very first questions you’ll need to answer is, “how much of a down payment should I make?” The answer: ideally, 20 percent. Granted, it’s not easy to save 20 percent of the home’s sale price for a down payment. In fact, saving for a down payment remains the No. 1 obstacle to homeownership for many Americans. To qualify for a conventional mortgage, you need to have a down payment of at least 5 percent of the purchase price. However, putting less than 20 percent down can have significant financial...read more

When you decide to sell, the first thing to do is investigate the local housing market. Consult the large real estate sites, like Realtor.com,Zillow.com and HomeGain.com to see how similar homes are priced in your neighborhood. Many newspapers also list the selling and asking prices of recent sales, plus how long the houses were on the market. Note the prices for your neighborhood during the last several months. Check how sales were running, say, a year ago, so you get an idea of whether the market is heating up, cooling down, or staying put....read more

For most people, buying a house involves a double financial whammy. First you have to assemble a pile of cash for the down payment and closing costs. Then you must convince a bank to lend you an even more staggering sum – generally 80% or more of the purchase price. So your first step, even before you start the actual hunt for a property, should be to get your financial house in order.
