Newly Written Articles

Buyers: Stretching Your Budget Means Compromise talks about how to make your dollars go further, and the thin line between "challenging" and "not going to happen"

What Are The Note And Trust Deed And What Is The Difference? This is a basic article on these two loan documents of very different function.

The Home Valuation Code of Conduct (New Appraisal Standards) discusses the effects that the new appraisal standards will have on the loan market after May 1. I have been informed that NAMB, the National Association of Mortgage Brokers, has filed suit to prevent it from becoming effective. On behalf of consumers and loan officers nationwide, here's hoping they are successful.

Updated Articles

One Spouse Qualifying For A Loan on Their Own

My Loan was Denied - What Fees Can I Recover?

Issues with Relocation Loans

Finally, I have just re-done The Tradeoff between Rate and Cost in Real Estate Loans. This is such a critical article that it really belongs in a category out by itself. You cannot understand real estate loans until you understand the subject matter of this article. Read it. Understand it. Remember it. Every interaction you have with a loan provider should center about this trade-off.

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.
