  Very Interesting and I thought I'd Share! Standing outside of a dilapidated Bronx apartment building, New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio announced plans to launch an 8-point housing plan to hold the city’s worst landlords accountable for repairing their buildings. Earlier, de Blasio launched the city’s “Worst Landlords Watch List” to shine a spotlight on repeat offenders whose buildings have fallen into dangerous disrepair. The online Watch List currently lists 418 buildings owned by 323 distinct landlords. As part of new initiatives, Public Advocate de Blasio has teamed with Craigslist to expand NYC’s Worst Landlords Watch List so that tenants can easily network with others who live in different buildings but share the same landlord. The list contains a ranking of Worst Lan...

Warren Buffett believes that the housing market will rebound this year. Signs of improvement abound. Existing home sale rose in January for the third straight month. (update: NAR just released data showing that the number of new pending home sales in January declined) Housing has never been this affordable in decades. More from Warren... Billionaire Warren Buffett said buying a home was the third-best investment he ever made, after the rings he bought for his first wife, Susan Thompson, and, after her death, his second wife, Astrid Menks. "For the $31,500 I paid for our house, my family and I gained 52 years of terrific memories with more to come," Buffett, the world's third-richest man, still lives in the house he bought in Omaha, Nebraska, more than five decades ago. He said home owne...

13 Extra Costs to be Aware of Before Buying a Home "The last thing you need are unbudgeted financial obligations cropping up hours before you take possession of your new home." Whether you're looking to buy your first home, or trading up to a larger one, there are many costs - on top of the purchase price - that you must figure into your calculation of affordability. These extra fees, such as taxes and other additional costs, could surprise you with an unwanted financial nightmare on closing day if you're not informed and prepared. Some of these costs are one-time fixed payments, while others represent an ongoing monthly or yearly commitment. Not all of these costs will apply in every situation, however it's better to know about them ahead of time so you can budget properly. Remember, b...

At the height of the Real Estate boom, required down payments were at an all time low. In June of 2006, the average down payment percentage on the purchase of a single family residence was 4%. If you had good credit and could breath, there were mortgage brokers who would provide you with a 100% loan with no documentation. All we needed was your name, address, and Social Security Number. That is about to change. The folks in Washington D.C. want  the return of the days of a minimum of 10% and an average down payment of 20% is swiftly approaching. The Obama Administration has called for 10% minimums on Fannie/Freddie loans. Sheila Bair, Chairwoman of the FDIC has stated that she flat out wants 20% down payments. Many banks are already there. An analysis of major metropolitan areas reveals...
