Humble Student Of The Markets

The reaction to the Fed’s QE2 program has come hot and fast. Rising market regulators are complaining about QE2 loudly. From Brazil to South Africa, the reaction has been swift and negative. China’s Vice-Foreign Minister Cui Tankai said that the US “owes us some explanation on their decision” and PBoC governor Zhou Xiaochuan complained that QE2 “is not necessarily an optimal policy for the world”.

Every time there’s a repair on the house, if done properly, that repair can boost the value of your home because it will be worth more. In the event that you upgrade old windows, replace the shingles on the roof, or remodel the kitchen, that can make your home worth more money. When you possess a home, you have to cover these fixes.

When you lease, the landlord must pay for these repairs, but they don’t mind because it makes the true home worth more money! Making regular payments on the home mortgage will increase your credit history. Better credit means better financing for the next home purchase, a refinance of the first home as well as for a car purchase or any other credit purchases saving you thousands in interest through the years to come.

The qualifications for buying a home are almost the same qualifications for renting a home. You need to have okay credit, a deposit, and a good job.

If you have a credit score of 580 (or better), you’ll be able to qualify for an FHA loan. A 580 FICO score is not considered good credit and may even be low enough to prevent you from letting. But it is a good enough credit score to buy a little home. If you have better credit than you can qualify for better interest rates with other styles of loans. The deposit for a residence purchase with an FHA loan is 3 ½% of the price. This amount is nearly the same as first & last month’s rent and a security deposit.
