Last makeup week. Let's hope I don't let this get behind again!

Newly Written Articles

You Want an Agency That Can Pay ENOUGH Attention to YOU: Just because they sell a lot of properties doesn't mean they do a good job of it. More and more, that is the complete opposite of the way things really are.

Restricted Sale Property: Very Difficult to Find A Loan If your property has restrictions upon who you can sell it to (as low income housing, college housing endowments and other properties often have) then lenders will usually not be willing to loan against the property.

Buying Real Estate Isn't Simple. You've got hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line. People are going to try to cheat. Complex issues requiring professional knowledge really do pop up. If it were easy, anyone could do it without problems. Clearly, with the number of people having problems right now, that is not the case.

Student Loans and Real Estate Loans: Default, Repayment vs. Nonpayment and Consolidation Effects student loans have on your ability to afford real estate loans - even when you're not in repayment status.

Debunking the "Record Wave of Foreclosures Coming" Myth This is just manipulating data to make things look worse than they are.

The Measurement Unit For Desirability Is Dollars A good buyer's agent can make a difference, but if you want a property with something extra, you can expect to pay more for it than you would for a property without that extra.

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.
