Mid Year Financial Checkup: 5 Things to Review

Posted by Paco de Leon on 6/29/2018

If our calendar year could be compared to a basketball game, we're at about half time. For those of you who don't know anything about basketball, the game is broken into two halves with half time in the middle. During halftime both teams retreat to their locker rooms.

So, right now, we're in our half time. We're in the locker room taking a quick breather from running up and down the court like athletes trying to score as many points as we can. It's time to huddle up and make sure we are doing things right.

Let's Talk Interest-Only ARMs

Posted by Kayleen Kavanagh on 5/11/2018

You’re ready to buy a home, and this may or may not be your first rodeo.  You’ve gone through the mental process of figuring out when the right time is, conducted research on the home-buying process, and put aside money for a down payment.  Just as there are a number of reasons why you decided to buy a home, there are many ways of reaching that goal.  In a typical home-buying situation, receiving keys to your new home starts when you get qualified for a home loan.  A traditional mortgage may be the loan option that comes to mind first.  With its fixed loan rate and steady payment amount for terms up to 30 years, this mortgage option is popular; however, in a one-size-does-not-fit-all world, there may be a better option for your situation.  Putting aside time for researching additional home loan options is worth it, given the investment you’re making.

Auto Expert – Free Help For Your Next Vehicle Purchase

Posted by Admin on 2/16/2018

Some people genuinely enjoy the process of buying a new vehicle.  The dealerships, the research, the haggling, and even the salespeople. Then, there are some people who would rather experience none of that at all.  In fact, they’d prefer that someone else (who loves doing all of that) do it for them instead.  That ‘someone else’ has to exist, right?  Well, they do.
