Why We Finally Have A Borrower’s Market

Borrowers rejoice. If ever you will have a glorious moment in the financial sun this is it. What we have today is a borrower's market, a time with both low interest rates and easy access to home loans. Borrowers should be giddy. Whether you need to finance or refinance you have to have been happy with 2014 — and 2015 looks like more of the same. Let’s start with interest rates. If you’re a borrower lower is better. According to Freddie Mac, interest rates for fixed-rate, 30-year mortgages in 2014 started at 4.53 percent and ended at 3.87 percent. By historic standards, 4.53 percent is ridiculously low and 3.87 percent is even more ridiculous.Complete Story

Has Equity Sharing Finally Arrived?

By Peter G. Miller, Contributor

Equity sharing has long been touted as the magical solution to every real estate problem since the use of caves. If you want more first-time buyers, additional investment or fewer foreclosures then equity sharing is the way to go. Everyone from Mark Cuban to the Urban Institute has latched onto the idea, and now there’s some reason to believe that equity sharing is about to become more popular. People have always bought together but traditionally there was a problem: Only one owner could write off costs. This meant if you had one owner who lived on the property and a second owner who didn’t only one could deduct mortgage interest and property taxes. Complete Story
