General Consumer Articles:Week in Review December 1-7, 2008

| | Comments (0)

I have been working a lot of hours, and writing this site is about the only area where the time factor can give. I've got a new article queued up for tomorrow (and it's a goodie: Presenting Offers In Person), but I'm not certain I'll be able to find more time to write this week.

Newly Written Articles

Cash to Close - A Basic Primer talks about the underwriting standard that had become forgotten, and is now causing lots of transactions to crash and burn because it's back with a vengeance.

Fake Agent Scams talks about telling the difference between a real agent and a fake one.

Adverse Possession talks about a very real feature of real estate law that can cause you to lose part of your property - or you can use it to gain legal title.

Updated Articles

Legal Reasons for Making Late Payments on Your Mortgage. Basically, there aren't any good ones.

Issues with Divorce and Real Estate Understand what divorce does to who is responsible for the mortgage payment and who has title.

Mortgage Loan Advertisements: Horrible and Getting Worse talks about how mortgage companies manipulate the truth and take advantage of your ignorance to get you to call. If you understand most of these advertisements, they are like signposts that say "DANGER! Toxic Waste"

Gravity Is Not a Major Determinant Of Housing Prices. Look at supply, demand, and ability to pay.

Please be civil. Avoid profanity - I will delete the vast majority of it, usually by deleting the entire comment. To avoid comment spam, a comments account is required. They are freely available, and you can post comments immediately. Alternatively, you may use your Type Key registration, or sign up for one (They work at most Movable Type sites). All comments made are licensed to the site, but the fact that a comment has been allowed to remain should not be taken as an endorsement from me or the site. There is no point in attempting to foster discussion if only my own viewpoint is to be permitted. If you believe you see something damaging to you or some third party, I will most likely delete it upon request.
Logical failures (straw man, ad hominem, red herring, etcetera) will be pointed out - and I hope you'll point out any such errors I make as well. If there's something you don't understand, ask.
Nonetheless, the idea of comments should be constructive. Aim them at the issue, not the individual. Consider it a challenge to make your criticism constructive. Try to be respectful. Those who make a habit of trollish behavior will be banned.
