Should you use HELOC or REFI?

My experience financing a remodel with a HELOC or REFI

heloc or refiFirst up today will be an update on my efforts to remodel my home. My loan of choice was a HELOC – particularly since I had so many banks soliciting me via email to give me one!. However, I recently hit snag with this and today I will share that and some insights into how you can avoid the same problem and still achieve your goals. Good information to help you decide on a HELOC or REFI.

We will also discuss the recent increase in lending rates and the increase in mortgage applications.

Finally, lets talk a little about the cities where homes sold the fastest this winter.

Then we will take a few minutes to talk about eminent domain and a plan right here in the bay area to seize private property because the county does not like what the property owners want to do with their property.

More than just mortgage debt might be forming a bubble!
