home buying: Mortgage Modifications Gone Bad... - 09/15/09 11:58 AM
Story after story talks about how homeowners, who are attempting to modify their adjustable interest rate home loans to lower their payments, are now watching their monthly payments skyrocket. Please don't get an adjustable rate mortgage (A.R.M.)! I just read a story about a couple in AZ with a $550,000 home and they are trying to get a loan modification, because their interest rate is going to adjust (UP) to over $1,000 more per month. Most Americans cannot afford a jump in monthly payment like that. When you are looking to purchase a home, only apply for a fixed interest (3 comments)

home buying: Buyers: How Close Are You Looking? - 03/13/07 01:11 AM
While showing a property today, I noticed that there was a sump pump in the corner of the basement that looked to be a part of a waterproofing system. Since 95% of the basement was finished, it was not possible to know if the waterproofing went all of the way around the foundation. That's what property disclosure forms are supposed to tell you. I then started looking closer at the unfinished area near the furnace and after moving a some stacked items, I noticed what appeared to be some mold across the bottom section of the back-side of the drywall. Obviously with the basement being waterproofed, (5 comments)
