Question by Troy B: Are there any good 1st time home buyers programs to help with down payment and closing costs?
Are there any good 1st time home buyers programs to help with closing costs and down payment? (Either or) I already have pre-approval and now was looking for help with the down payment or closing cost.
As of right now the seller is picking up about 3.5% but that still leaves us with a sizable down payment and closing costs.

Question by aayad53: Any idea for debt consolidation up to 10 years?
I have over $ 88K in credit cards. I went to debt consolidation program and my FICO score went high. My only problem, check payment based on 5 years so my monthly payment so high. Do anyone know if someone can do debt conolidation but payments will be for 10 years? I don’t have any equity in my home to refinance

Answer by Budget Doctor
Figure out how much you can pay each month and pay down the highest APR credit card the most each time. For the other cards, more about just pay the minimum. that will effectively produce the same result as a debt consolidation program

4 years ago there were many banks and lenders who would have loaned you the money. Now it is almost impossible due to your low credit score. Every city has “hard money” lenders who will loan at 14% interest. That will get rid of the 2nd loan but the payments will be high. You look for them in the newspaper.

If the newest HARP program (government) goes thru, health you will be able to refinance at 4% fixed for 30 years. It was supposed to be ready December 15. No credit check needed. No word on when it will arrive.

  1. Generally, pmi is out nowadays. Bankers have gotten creative in their financing because pmi is a lose-lose situation for home owners and banks, so instead, they give you two loans on your property. The first is for 75 or 80%. The second is for the balance.

    The interest rate on your first will be lower then the interest on the second because they use your money to pay down the second before the first. This becomes a win-win situation because mortgage interest is tax deductible for homeowners whereas pmi is not. Plus, the bank gets to keep that interest as income instead of forwarding it to an insurance company.

    Lastly, the interest rate is determined by your credit score, the price of the house and how much money you put down. Believe it or not, the higher the cost of the house, the lower the interest rate. Also, the more money you put down, the lower the interest rate.

    Hope ths helps.
