Well once again PGE is on a Power Trip in the Bay Area in Northern California. And I was told 30-40 years ago that companies couldn't have a monopoly and control all of what there selling. But it sure looks like PGE has a monopoly on electricity in California. And if we're not happy with PGE shouldn't we be allowed to use another company? That's another reason I love Alaska ...Sure I have to purchase electricity, but when it's turned off like PGE has been doing in NorCal for the last 2 weeks I just start up my generator for power. In fact it's cheaper to run my generator for electricity then buying it from Homer Electric. And I have enough fish, caribou, other meats in the freezer and canned foods to last me 6-12 months.So anyway back to PGE ... Shame on you for flexing and trying to co...

Which category do you fall into as a Homebuyer: the Educated 38% or the Other (we won't say foolish), 62%?According to the ‘2019 Home Buyer Report’ conducted by Nerdwallet, many first-time buyers still believe they need a 20% down payment to buy a home in today’s market:“More than 6 in 10 (62%) Americans believe you must put at least 20% down in order to purchase a home.”In a competitive market like Silicon Valley, people often assume 20 percent down payment is the minimum needed to buy a home. Yet I've successfully helped home buyers paying as little as 3.5% down (sometimes even with gift funds) to buy that all-important first house in San Jose, Cupertino and Santa Clara, Calif.The bigger danger of this erroneous thinking is when buyers presume they need a 20% down payment, they figure...

Your Debt-to-Income Ratio Is High and It Will Be Alright You might have been lured into reading this blog post under the false assumption that I'd be discussing the controversial subject of financing cannabis-related businesses and property.  Well, you can let that notion go up in smoke.  Instead, we're going to talk about the ways you can get a great jumbo mortgage in California if your debt-to-income ratio (also known as "DTI") is higher than Jeff Spicoli at 4:20pm.  OK, dude, not really, but we are going to address the ways you can get a decent home loan with a very competitive rate if your DTI exceeds 43% --- the maximum amount specified for a qualified mortgage, or "QM."  Let's get together and review a little background first. Your debt-to-income ratio is determined by dividing yo...
