Sometimes people don’t realize it but even if you have trouble getting a loan due to poor credit, self employed-difficult to prove income, need fast financing, property a fixer, etc, you can still get a loan. It’s called a Hard Money Loan. If you’ve found yourself wanting a home and are in one of those categories I’d suggest checking it out on line to find your closest Hard Money Lender that can help you.

The other interesting findings in the report include:
Even though prices increased sharply in many markets over the past year, low mortgage rates have kept homeownership from becoming more expensive than renting.
Some markets might tip in favor of renting this year as prices continue to rise faster than rents and if – as most economists expect – mortgage rates rise, due both to the strengthening economy and Fed tapering.
Nationally, rates would have to rise to 10.6% for renting to be cheaper than buying – and rates haven’t been that high since 1989.
Buying a home now makes sense. You can lock in a mortgage payment before home prices and mortgage rates rise as experts expect they will. If you rent, your housing expense will only continue to increase.
