    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.

    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  [...]

    Things to Do Before Signing the Rent Lease
    Most apartments look similar, but every house gives you a different living experience. It may be a horrible one, if you haven’t done your homework well. To have a pleasant stay, consider these points: 1.    Don’t Select Your Apartment based on a Sample Suite Don’t make your decision based on the sample suite your renter shows.

    You Want A House Because Of These 5 Myths
    I have never seen people as stalwartly bigheaded as we Americans. We want to be proud of buying and living in our own home even if we are walking through the shards of the biggest housing disintegration of the century. Oh, and why not. We are backed by our government with the remarkable tax credit that will probably keep extending till 2012, if the world doesn’t end then that is.
