4 Things I Wish I’d Known Before I Got an FHA Loan

Realtor

Michail_Petrov-96/iStock A few years back, my husband and I got an FHA loan. At the time, we were growing out of our two-bedroom, 850-square-foot rental in St. Petersburg, FL. We had one child, one cat, and lots of stuff. In short, it was time to move.

Miller Samuel

My friend and appraisal colleague Ryan Lundquist and I authored a petition on change.org to point out the growing wreckless behavior that is enveloping the mortgage process.

How To Build A Compounding Machine

Real Estate Finance HQ

Before I dive deep into the subject of how to build a compounding machine, let me explain exactly what my 7 year old son did after I gave him this advice. As Einstein said: If you can’t explain it to a 7 year old, you don’t understand it. My son Everest has a scrap metal business. To be more precise, he dives into dumpsters in my neighborhood looking for aluminum cans and copper wiring. He then takes it to a metal scrap yard and get’s cash.
