Housing: Two steps forward, two steps back

Posted by Levi Dynon On Nov - 29 - 2016


While recent reports seem to indicate that our overall economy is growing at a decent pace (all things considered), one facet remains mired in seemingly-repetitive inconsistency: housing.

I know, no real surprise there. But it’s not as though housing indicators haven’t seen positive growth since the bubble burst — they have. It’s just that the periods of positive growth seem to always be canceled out by new negative reports.

The country’s GDP certainly isn’t growing by leaps and bounds, but it has shown some consistent signs of firming and even gradual improvement. Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for housing.

Getting through an extended period of unemployment can be really difficult if you’re not prepared, so when your employer at the very least offers you aseverancepackage, you need to know how to make the most of it.

What Is Severance Pay?

When an employee loses a job, usually for a reason out of their control like downsizing, their employer may offer them money or other financial assistance to help them survive until they find a new job.

Refinancing: It’s all gravy once you break even

Posted by Levi Dynon On Nov - 23 - 2016


Mortgage rates have come down so precipitously that even homeowners who purchased or refinanced their properties fairly recently may be able to save even more by refinancing again.

These days, you’re probably thinking about pumpkin pie, not points, and cranberry sauce, not credit. But one thing you should be thinking about — a lot — is gravy. No, not the sauce, but the money you might free up by refinancing your mortgage. Here’s how you can calculate your potential savings.

Mortgage refinancing: making tradeoffs

Refinancing isn’t free; you have to pay for it somehow. The financing costs associated with your refinance do offset some of the money you can save on your new home loan. The primar
