I just bought a house and plan to live in it for at least 5 years. What can I do to increase my equity besides making extra principal payments on my loan?


Congratulations. You’ve bought a home in one of the best markets for buyers. Just the fact that you bought your house in a down market will give you a good chance of your house increasing in value while you live there. This, in turn, increases the amount of equity you have in your… Continue

Posted on December 15, 2008 at 1:30pm 0 Comments


My partner and I are planning to buy a house together, but we will get a much better rate if I am the only one on the mortgage. What is the best way to move forward so that we both own the property, but we get the best financing possible?


When a couple goes to buy a house, they often find out that one person is in much better shape financially than the other. In this case, as in yours, it’s better for one person to take out the mortgage on the house. The… Continue

Well - I wouldn't go so far as to say NO NYers. . .I don't plan to run away screaming if I meet any. You seem perfectly nice, for instance!

Hi, Talia

RE: NYC ExPats - at the moment, the last thing I want is to be around NYers! I suppose that may will change. . .I may miss it once I'm gone. . .I've lived here my entire life, though, and I'm ready to try missing it for a change.

Putting in a patio (due to erosion problems)

Hi all,I live in the east mountains and I have some bad erosion that's taking my current walk ways away from the house. As a result, I am going to have to rip these out and put in a much bigger patio/retaining wall. It's going to be one of those with the interlocking cement bricks. Not the prettiest, but they will be facing the downward slope of my hill and for the most part you won't see it.I know it's going to be expensive, but I wonder if anyone has any references. As a Realtor, I have a few…See More
