Rising Home Prices Slowing Down

According to CNNMoney, the increase in home prices may be slowing down due to the rising interest rates. The increase in June was still significant as compared to last year, but it was the first time in twelve months that we didn’t see the gain exceed the previous month. In May, we saw a gain of 12.2% over the last year while June only saw a gain of 12.1%. Experts put the blame on rising mortgage interest rates which climbed up a full point since May.

Landlord Requires Renter’s Insurance

Renter’s insurance

Basic Renter’s Insurance covers a tenant’s personal property. The Landlord’s insurance policy, which covers the building, usually does not cover the tenant’s property.

Requiring Renter’s Insurance

Many Landlords include a provision in their lease that states that they are not responsible for loss or damage to the tenant’s property. Also, the landlord will stress the importance of the Tenant obtaining Renter’s Insurance. Some Landlords go a step further – they include a provision in their lease which requires a Tenant to obtain and maintain Renter’s Insurance for the duration of the lease.

If the policy is optional, then the renter will have to weigh the cost and benefit of having a Renter’s Insurance policy.

FHA Mortgage After Short Sale

8035168724_fd84da0628_o

Get an FHA mortgage one year after short sale

The FHA recently released a letter stating that it was reducing the waiting period to get an FHA loan after a short sale, bankruptcy or foreclosure to 1 year.  This is a big deal because the waiting period had been two years after a bankruptcy and three years after the completion of a foreclosure or a short sale.

However, not everyone will qualify. Borrowers will be required to prove that their household income fell by 20 percent or more for at least six months. That the decrease in income was  because of unemployment or another event beyond their control. That they have now recovered and reestablished their credit by making at least 12 months of on-time payments on debts such as a mortgage, rent, or credit account.
