What You Need to Know About Finances and House Buying

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. Start with your credit Credit reports are kept by the three major credit agencies, Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion. Among other things, they show...

Am I Ready to Buy a House?

Home ownership means you no longer pay monthly rent for the roof over your head. You can do what you want with your house (within reason). When you leave, you can sell it to recoup the purchase price and – with any luck – earn a profit too. But don’t kid yourself. Home ownership comes with a slew of disadvantages, responsibilities, and downright headaches. So before going any further, consider whether your lifestyle and finances make home buying a smart move. TIP: High costs mean you should be prepared to stay put. Except in...

10 Tips for Buying a New Home

1. Don’t buy if you can’t stay put. If you can’t commit to remaining in one place for at least a few years, then owning is probably not for you, at least not yet. With the transaction costs of buying and selling a home, you may end up losing money if you sell any sooner – even in a rising market. When prices are falling, it’s an even worse proposition. 2. Start by shoring up your credit. Since you most likely will need to get a mortgage to buy a house, you must make sure your credit history is as clean as...

Is the Housing Market Stabilizing?

Is the Housing Market Stabilizing?

After the rollercoaster ride that has been the past six years, the national housing market is finally in a place that, at least for the moment, looks stable. Better yet, it looks downright sustainable, if the latest Trulia Price Monitor is to be believed. According to Trulia, for the first time since July 2012, none of the 100 largest markets in May—anywhere in the United States—saw home prices rise more than 20 percent year-over-year. This is the first sign of sustainability in the housing market in years and is, according to Trulia’...

Pending home sales increase for first time in 9 months

The number of homes that went under contract rose in March, marking the first gain in nine months, the National Association of Realtors reported today. Pending home sales — a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings — climbed 3.4 percent from February to March, but were down 7.9 percent from the same time a year ago, according to NAR. “After a dismal winter, more buyers got an opportunity to look at homes last month and are beginning to make contract offers,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Sales activity is expected to...

Be ready to buy your first home

First-time home buyers have it tough. The supply of homes for sale is tight, and lenders are tightfisted. Student debt, at an all-time high of nearly $30,000 per grad, is getting in the way of saving for a down payment, says David Stevens, president and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association. But it’s a great time to get your foot in the door. “Interest rates remain the envy of even your grandparents,” says Keith Gumbinger, vice president of mortgage publisher HSH.com. First, make your finances sparkle. THE TURNING-POINT...

Here’s Why Owning Your Own Home Really is a Good Investment

Here’s Why Owning Your Own Home Really is a Good Investment

According to a recent Gallup poll, more Americans are beginning to view real estate as a viable long-term investment. Thirty percent of those surveyed early last month took this view, up from 25% just a year ago. Gallup credited an improving housing market as being the chief driver of the change in popular opinion on this matter. But, wait. Some experts, notably Yale economics professor Robert Shiller, disagree heartily with this view. In interviews over the past couple of years, Shiller referred to his research in which he studied home price...

Is It Getting Easier to Get a Mortgage?

Is It Getting Easier to Get a Mortgage?

You may not have noticed it, but recently, it’s gotten easier to buy a new home. Last year, a strong housing market combined with fears that the Federal Reserve would eventually begin tapering its purchases of mortgage bonds. Together, these factors helped drive up the cost of a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage from about 3.3 percent in January 2013 to nearly 4.6 percent by September. Since then, mortgage rates have backed off those recent highs, bobbling back and forth between 4.5 percent or so, and, recently, 4.2 percent. This has helped...

US foreclosures fall to lowest quarterly level since mid-2007

The U.S. housing market is back on its feet, aided by rising home prices, steady job growth and fewer troubled loans. More U.S. homeowners are also keeping up with their mortgage payments. March was the 42nd straight month where U.S. foreclosure activity dropped from year-ago levels. The number of U.S. home foreclosure filings slid 23 percent in March from a year ago, helping bring first-quarter foreclosure activity to its lowest level since the second quarter of 2007, a report from RealtyTrac showed on Thursday. There were 117,485 U.S....
