Mortgages and the Housing Market On My Mind
December 2, 2009
Buying and selling houses, and living with the resulting mortgage payments, is something our family thought a lot about last month. The home buyer tax credit for existing home owners got us started investigating putting our house on the market. As we cleaned out the garage and tried to decide if real estate agents are worth the money we weighed the pros and cons of selling our home and buying a new one.
After a lot of thought and consideration we’ve decided to put our plans on hold for a few years while we save up more money for our house fund. Of course plans could change but for now that’s what we’re working towards. Here are a few more real estate related posts from last month
- House Hunting Tips for Busy Parents
- Reverse Mortgages for Seniors
- Reverse Mortgage Disadvantages
- Five Tips on Buying Foreclosures
- Real Estate Short Sales Explained
As the year draws to a close we offered some tips on open enrollment deadlines, year end tax tips for 2009, and some holiday shopping tips to avoid debt. We also took a look at two personal finance related services with a TradeKing new account review and a PocketSmith user review. Just last week I had fun making this Thanksgiving video, 24 Daily Thankful Moments.
That wraps up November, this month we’ll take a look at more year end financial moves to make, cover some more holiday savings deals, and start looking ahead to the impending tax season.
