https://youtu.be/GaLdYm37fy4 VIDEO DIALOGUE How long does it take to sell a house?  Well, I’ll admit that’s a bit of a tough question to answer.  No one wants their house to sit on the market for a long time, and in some cases you really need to sell in a short period of time, and of course you want the most you can get for it.

Again, by definition, stock is plentiful and buyer’s are able to keep the prices down.  It might seem like an idyllic scenario where we are able to dictate what we want the prices to be as the buyers.  In real estate, this might actually come to pass on a case by case scenario. Let me give you [...]

Video: Seller’s Market

https://youtu.be/9_3ml8K5iL0 VIDEO DIALOGUE Is it a Buyer’s or a Seller’s market?  What’s the difference between the two? Well let’s look at the difference between them.  Today I’m going to talk about a Seller’s Market. By definition a seller’s market is one where the seller typically is able to dictate the price of something because stock is limited.  You have seen this before, especially in our current circumstance.  My wife tried to buy a bottle of rubbing alcohol at [...]

If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for those ways to set money aside, or make passive income to help support [...]

Video: High Student Loan Debt and Buying a House

https://youtu.be/F6FAymTm-KI   VIDEO DIALOGUE Student loans can definitely affect your ability to get a mortgage, but maybe not how you think.  Basically, when a lender is looking at your financial profile, one thing they are looking at is how much debt you pay monthly, compared to your monthly income.  This is called your debt to income ratio, or DTI.
