OK Boomer, You Don't Need 20% Down Bound to happen from time to time in the digital age, a saying goes viral --- in this case, "OK, boomer," --- which is meant to expose a close-minded or out-of-touch opinion, thought or mindset of one generation by another (I'll let you figure out the age demographics here).  Hopefully, the topic of this blog will transcend generational differences and address the assumptions about the down payment one needs to make when purchasing a home, versus the reality of what we see every day with those who are actually buying homes.  I think you'll be surprised at the expanse between fact and fiction. Let's start by saying that in the US, it's been widely assumed that a homebuyer must make a 20% down payment of the purchase price.  This concept has been propaga...

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...
