home mortgage: Tax Return Depressing? Owning a Home Could Help - 04/20/17 07:09 PM

Tax Return Depressing? Owning a Home Could Help Many Americans got some depressing news last week; either their tax return was not as large as they had hoped or, in some cases, they were told they owed additional money to either the Federal or State government or both. One way to save on taxes is to own your own home.
According to the Tax Policy Center’s Briefing Book -“A citizen’s guide to the fascinating (though often complex) elements of the federal Tax System” – there are several tax advantages to homeownership.

home mortgage: J.P. Morgan Chase is pulling FHA Lending - 08/01/14 01:24 AM
J.P. Morgan Chase is pulling FHA Lending
J.P. Morgan Chase is stepping back from FHA lending after paying fines to HUD of $614m. Jamie Dimon stated....."I'm not sure we need to be in the government insured origination business, unless HUD provides lenders some kind of safe harbor for honest mistakes made as we digest a mountain of new procedures and regulations."
The entire mortgage industry is pleading with the Fed to provide a "right to cure", which would allow us to cure the mistake rather than re-purchase and re-sell the mortgage. The cost of which is oppressive. JPMC lost over $50m … (0 comments)

home mortgage: Boost Your Wellington Home’s Curb Appeal in a Single Weekend! - 06/09/14 09:36 PM

This holds for casual passers-by as well as serious prospects who are pulling up for a scheduled house showing. It’s simply true: you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
If you will be listing your home this summer, adding a thoughtful extra touch or two to the outside can transform your Palm Beach County property’s curb appeal into its first strong selling point. After all, what buyer won’t favor … (0 comments)

home mortgage: First-Time Home Buyers in West Palm Beach Have a Familiar Question - 05/07/14 11:42 PM

West Palm Beach first-time home buyers in 2014 are faced with a question that hasn’t changed for generations: is it more practical to buy right now, or to continue to rent?
Over the past few years, buying has been the easy choice. Nationally, in 2013 it cost 35% less to own a home than to rent according to that year’s study by real estate website Trulia. That despite rising house prices and mortgage rates. But that was last year, and the experts have been pretty unanimous in predicting that interest rates will continue to rise—ending up somewhere near 5.5% by … (0 comments)

home mortgage: The Larger Case for Smaller Houses in West Palm Beach - 04/11/14 07:47 PM

It just might be that a groundswell is spreading throughout the home-buying public. In West Palm Beach, smaller houses that used to be difficult to sell are rising in popularity, and I can guess why.
First, a little history. Back in 1950, what we would consider smaller houses were the rule: the average square footage came in at just 983 (try to imagine the ‘average’ family with 2 kids, 2 adults and Lassie all shoehorned in there!). By 2006, that figure had blown up to 2,248 square feet—and we all know about the bigger McMansions—just in time for the financial … (0 comments)
