    Paying off the mortgage in 3 years is not impossible
    When I told everyone who was willing to hear me that I planned on paying off the mortgage in 3 years, they laughed at me and said it was impossible. It was only my deadpan expression that then told them this was no joke on my part. Some years on, I am mortgage free and I have the last laugh. That happened this November, and it is a monumental achievement for me in a financial sense. The year was 2005, and I had just graduated. In a fit of youthful exuberance and positivity, I bought my first home in the summer of that year. My plan was simple; to keep costs as low as I could and so I bought a two room home that I could comfortably live in upstairs while renting out the basement of the home to someone else. I waded into my savings and made the down payment. Paying off the mortgage was obviously  [...]

    Mortgage escrow accounts and what you need to know
    In essence, Escrow is a term that is used by businesses to define a transaction where buyers and sellers cannot make a direct exchange of money or goods or services and neither wants to take the risk of non-delivery later. These trust issues are solved by a third party, known as the Escrow, who releases what is entitled to the party in question once they have fulfilled their part of the bargain. This Escrow can also come into play as real estate escrow accounts. In this, the buyer gives the money to the escrow and the seller gives the rights to the escrow as well and neither gets what they are entitled to unless the escrow gets both the funds and the title in question. Similarly, it can come into play as mortgage escrow accounts. Mortgage escrow accounts are not the same as a real estate escrow  [...]

    Mortgages and foreclosures are bringing the house down
    Michael Marsden stumped up the cash somehow to pay off the bank for his home in Michigan, a four room cabin that he wanted to make his own for the longest time ever. He had every intention of fixing it up so his son could enjoy it just as he would himself. What should have been the beginning of a dream instead quickly metamorphosed into a nightmare as the property was foreclosed on and the locks were changed before Marsden could so much as raise an eyebrow in amazement and wonder what was going on. The mortgages and foreclosures machinery was in full swing. Danielle Robinson faces not much of a different situation.

    No home comforts to be had
    It has been a little more than a month since some paperwork pertaining to a mortgage mysteriously disappeared from the files of the Washington Mutual Bank, but they seem strangely unworried about it. This is a multimillion-dollar mortgage we’re talking about here, and a crucial piece of paper to boot, yet no one seems perturbed. After undertaking a search operation to try and find the missing documentation (a promissory note that mentioned the borrowers commitment to pay off the mortgage), an assistant vice president gingerly drew up an affidavit that stated the document could not be found, simple as. It is an attitude that is alarmingly lackadaisical and callous, and Washington Mutual Bank are not the only ones to demonstrate it. The year was 2006, and the handling of the matter was  [...]
