Sorry, little late in responding. I usually try to check in here once or twice a week. Spoke with Capitol One today - they told me their secured card doesn't convert over to secured, no matter the time. Not sure about the Capital One response that it doesn't convert to an unsecured card, unless that...

a) bankruptcy is okay. b) $200 to $300 held on deposit & ideally which can be increased to higher amounts over time. Pretty sure most all Secured Credit Cards are going to be OK with previous bankruptcy, and generally starting them out at $200 or $300. As far as the credit line being increased ...

This is my experience in Ohio, different States have different rules. Bankruptcy - sure she could file bankruptcy, and then choose to either surrender the house or reaffirm the debt (keep the house). If she keeps the house, she keeps the debt that goes along with it. Generally, if someone surrenders...

Thats almost 27% of your before tax income on the payment. Pesonally, I would never even consider that but to each their own.

gets me out of the mortgage insurance (FHA loan) which is $105/mo When did you take this FHA loan out? Few things to consider: OLD RULES (prior to June 3, 2013): FHA required that you pay the MIP for a minimum of 5 years. No paying the loan down to get out of it. NEW RULES (since June 3, 2013): FHA...

Thanks very much for all the thoughtful responses, info, and advice. As some pointed out and as I learned when figuring out the numbers with taxes, common charges, and PMI, $630k was mathematically feasible, but too much. I wanted to question the concept of capping mortgage payments at a certain pe...

In the end, people out there will tell you both that you can afford it (and technically you could), while others will tell you it will cripple you financially (which dependent on your lifestyle and goals it certainly could). That may not necessarily be true. For a conventional loan, generally Fanni...

There are plenty of options for mortgages with less than 20% down. Keep in mind, I do loans in Ohio, so things may be slightly different depending on where you are. Conventional Loans (Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac) can do as little as 5% down. Obviously you will have PMI if less than 20% down payment. Som...

The refinance fees and realtor commissions take big chunks out of trying to get cash out... Just to clarify, there are no realtor commissions on a refinance. There are no realtors involved. So the only thing you'd be looking at eating into your chunk of cash-out would be the closing costs, which va...

Bad idea. Like has been mentioned, you will be capped at 80% of the appraised value most likely. That is the Cash-Out restriction. Most banks will not even offer a higher Loan to Value with PMI for Cash-Out. And given your current rate, it is a terrible idea. Worried about becoming homeless, so incr...

Do not do an ARM right now. The Fed is about to raise rates and it could cripple you if you cannot afford the increased monthly payments. You do understand what an ARM is don't you? A 5 year ARM is FIXED for the first 5 years, then it ADJUSTS based on the Index (usually PRIME) plus the Margin. 7 ye...

I'm confident we can refinance at 4-4.5% for 30 years and fork over $400-$600/mo towards principle... I just ran some calculators and we could pay off the home within 10 years by doing this. We've been thinking of refinancing with Quicken Loans... Again based on 30 years refinance, I'm pretty confi...

Might want to talk to your CPA regarding the PMI being tax deductible. Just another thing to consider before making your decision. Another option would be possibly taking out a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) to pay 10% to get out of PMI. Generally the repayment terms on the HELOC will be interes...

As far as mortgages go, you want to stay away from Manual Underwriting, as that opens the door for the individual underwriter to start trying to use common sense. In my experience, a medical collection, regardless of the size (within reason) and if it is paid or not, should not impact mortgage under...
