Subprime lending – back stronger than ever!

More credit score shenanigans pushes subprime lending to new heights!

subprime lendingI still can’t believe what we will talk about in todays show is actually happening. It is, for lack of a better word, completely nuts.

Subprime lending is now back – at levels that even appear to dwarf the idiotic lending that went on that led up to the 2007 crash. It is just mind boggling. So lets explore this boggle and see if we can get a handle on just how big this issue is – because it is heading our way on July 1, 2017. See if you agree that what is being done is bringing subprime lending to a while new level.

Subprime Lending in 2016

Responding to a listeners email

subprime lendingI recently had an email exchange with a listener relating to current lending and credit practices. As it turns out, we really don’t agree on much. So, lets share the listeners email, my response and then get into some details on why we are pretty much 180 degrees away from each other on this issue. What it all really boils down turn is that subprime lending is back, ready to cause the same issues it did last time.

We are basically creating the same toxic lending environment that cost us so dearly last time – but this time built around a much weaker economy. Whether you are a buyer, seller, investor or real estate entrepreneur, this is one you won’t want to miss.

More Subprime Style Shenanigans

PLUS:  Eminent Domain

federal reserve interest rateOur big topic for today spans a few stories. Subprime lending style strategies are back and they are scary. While there are protections now that were missing before, these are the kinds of things that evolve as institutions get comfortable with them. In short, setting a bad precedent. From bank firings to HELOC defaults, we are seeing lots of instability in the lending world and lots of efforts to get more money into the hands of folks who are risky at best. All it would take is some collapse in any of the current markets and we could see yet another downturn in real estate. The worst part is that there are more points of weakness today than last time and our economy is in much worse shape than last time, so things get much worse much faster.

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.

Debt, Delinquency and Negative Interest Rates

Plus, Is Recession Already Here?

aReal-Estate-Realities-Podcast-Logo-9-1400In todays show we are going to explore what is going on with debt. All kinds of debt. What states show the greatest debt in different areas? Which areas have had the highest delinquency rates? For some buyers, sellers, investors and real estate entrepreneurs, these trends can help them find opportunities where there are more properties to be found at better prices.

Today, there are many areas hard hit by the dip in the energy sector or the increase in the value of the dollar. We will talk about those areas and consider them as potential areas to explore since their stalled expansion has resulted in a surplus of real estate options.

There is also a new 3% loan which carries no mortgage insurance, but eventually ends up in the hands of a government sponsored entity – in other words the tax payer assumes the risk.

More on negative interest rates and loan bubbles!

Some crazy numbers on debt and the crazier option of negative interest rates!

It is all about your money in todays show. There is some interesting information about the auto loan bubble that you will want to hear. It is not a good. Then there is more to say about negative interest rates. I am seeing a pretty strong PR effort out there to get the concept some exposure – likely in the hopes of getting people to be ok with them. Both of these topics lead to some pretty interesting ideas to discuss.

Of course, all of this would absolutely have an effect not only on real estate – but anything and everything relating to your money, how you spend it, how you save it and how you get the biggest bang out of it to achieve your goals – whether you are a buyer, seller, investor or real estate entrepreneur.
