Lenders proudly market on insane lending standards!

lendingOur good buddy Scott in Sacramento reached out to me via email to share a truly startling email that he got from a lender recently. It included information that he celebrated, but should scare the hell out of anyone who actually wants a more healthy lending environment.

I will also give an update on my progress getting my home for sale. I feel like I am getting close and I am still shooting for a sale by October! I will share the latest in todays show.

Finally, we will talk about some crazy credit info, some scary pension data and how much someone needs to earn as a household to buy a home in my market. It is nuts!

Lower lending standards is NOT about helping borrowers, it’s about helping banks.

We have touched in this issue before without really getting into the nitty gritty of it. It just made more sense to think through how to deal with it as a reality rather than get caught up in a discussion that then takes on a political dimension that does not really get us anywhere when it comes to how we make smart real estate decisions. However, I have had enough members of the audience reach out to me for clarification on this that it seemed like it was time to talk about it. Despite the commercials that tell us banks are in it to make our lives better and make it possible for you to achieve the American dream, that is not really the case – at least not at its core. Are there folks that work at banks that really like helping people afford a home? I have no doubt. As institutions – a banks motivations are a bit more material than that.

We will also provide a small update to what we talked about yesterday regarding Connecticut – and it is not good news.

When the foundation goes, so does the house!

foundationA listener shared with some amazingly disturbing news from Connecticut. Homeowners are seeing their homes foundation crumble before their very eyes. The result is a home that literally begins to collapse around their heads! We will chat about this in todays show and check out the links below to make sure that your home is not at risk.

We will also discuss an interesting survey that seems to show that Americans understand that a price correction could be coming – but they sure don’t seem to be acting like it in my market. So we will chat about it.

Brain octane oil has made a HUGE difference in working toward my real estate goals.

brain octane oilFirst, I want to make clear that I am not being paid or compensated in ANY way to mention the product brain octane oil in todays show. I frequently mention things going on in my own life – particularly things that impact my real estate efforts – and this has done so.

While I struggle with being over weight (something I don’t usually talk about), I also have been struggling with low energy. This has been having a very negative effect on my ability to get all the things done I want to. I get that I am probably quite a bit more busy than the average guy, but this was to the point that I needed to find something to make things better. After a year of wrestling with it – including seeing a doctor – I have found something that has given me amazing results very quickly. So tune in to todays show for the lowdown. I have included a link to this product below over at Amazon, so feel free to check it out if you think you could benefit.

We also have some interesting stories to cover today that will give us the latest updates on debt and home prices in the northwest.

NOTE: I did find that I was able to link the octane oil to my Amazon store account. So the only “compensation” I might get for this suggestion is whatever your purchase would contribute to my store.
