Low interest rates...now is the time to buy that house/condo.

The good news? Two key measures now suggest it's an excellent time to buy a house, either to live in for the long term or for investment income (but not for a quick flip). First, the nation's ratio of house prices to yearly rents is nearly restored to its prebubble average. Second, when mortgage rates are taken into consideration, houses are the most affordable they have been in decades.

Two ideas for downpayment assistance :=)

TWO GREAT IDEAS TO GET HELP WITH A DOWNPAYMENT!!!

1. Investigate local, state, and national down payment assistance programs. These programs give qualified applicants loans or grants to cover all or part of your required down payment. National programs include the Nehemiah program, www.getdownpayment.com, and the American Dream Down Payment Fund from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, www.hud.gov.
2. Explore seller financing. In some cases, sellers may be willing to finance all or part of the purchase price of the home and let you repay them gradually, just as you would do with a mortgage.

Google soon power homes?

Could Google soon power homes?
NEW YORK – Oct. 4, 2011 – The Internet giant is increasing its stake in the solar home power business with a $75 million “initial investment” to buy and own solar-panel generators on roofs of thousands of homes. Google is investing in Clean Power Finance, a start-up company that matches solar-panel installers with investors willing to buy rooftop solar-panel systems.

“With Google’s investment, solar-panel installers can find homeowners who want solar panels on their roofs but don’t want to have to pay several thousand dollars to own the system,” according to an article in The Wall Street Journal.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to really help accelerate residential solar,” says Rick Needham, Google’s director of green business operations.

The latest investment will likely help fund up to 3,000 home rooftop solar systems. In June, Google made a $280 million investment in residential rooftop solar-panel installations with SolarCity Corp. Google’s total investment in renewable energy has been more than $850 million.

Rooftop solar demand is growing, and homeowners are finding paybacks too. Earlier this year, a study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory found that solar panels not only saved homeowners money on electricity bills but also helped boost a home’s resale value, particularly for existing homes.

VA to cover extra costs.

VA to cover extra costs amid home loan confusion.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – Oct. 3, 2011 – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs says it will cover extra costs for veterans who struck deals on home loans but now face the possibility of higher fees amid confusion over a federal law change.

The problem involves a Sept. 8 notice from the Department of Veterans Affairs loan operations that said fee rates would be lower beginning Saturday. Congress delayed that lower rate until November.

The change would have forced lenders who already had deals on home loans to increase the fee or pay it themselves. It could have taken longer to close mortgage deals because the fees changed the loan’s terms.

VA spokesman Josh Taylor said Saturday fee differences will be waived if veterans had closed loans at lower rates than required with new legislation.

Super low interest rates...now is the time to get that vacation home/condo!!!

The average on a 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.01 percent from 4.09 percent this week, Freddie Mac said Thursday. That’s the lowest rate since the mortgage buyer began keeping records in 1971. The last time long-term rates were lower was in 1951, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years.

Florida bouncing back, and recession not likely, report says

MIAMI – Sept. 16, 2011 – Florida’s improving economy should avoid recession, even as the recovery fights significant headwinds from a devastated real estate industry.

That’s the conclusion from the latest outlook for the Sunshine State by Wells Fargo, which sees South Florida and Tampa leading the rebound in hiring this year. Both markets have seen modest job growth in recent months, and payrolls are up about 1 percent in both regions during the last three months.

“Florida is slowly battling back from its worst recession in modern times,’’ the report reads. Wells Fargo expects economic growth to hit 2.2 percent next year in Florida, despite growing anxiety that the nation is heading for a second recession.

The Wells Fargo report credits a strong rebound in foreign tourism for Florida’s improving fortunes, with South Florida and Orlando enjoying outsized boosts from their popularity with travelers from Europe and Latin America.

Still, South Florida gets special mention in the report as a particularly troubled region. “South Florida’s recovery from the Great Recession has been painfully slow,” the report reads. Among the biggest problems Wells Fargo cites: nearly 40 percent of the region’s mortgages are either in foreclosure or at least 90 days overdue, compared to the national average of 11 percent.

Realtors honor 9/11 victims and families.

NEW YORK – Sept. 9, 2011 – As the nation honors the victims of 9/11 on the attack’s tenth anniversary, Realtors look back in sad remembrance but also with a certain pride for the way the Realtor family came together to help the victims’ families.

Within 24 hours of the attacks, the National Association of Realtors® created the Realtors Housing Relief Fund (RHRF) with a single goal: to make sure no families touched by the attacks lost a home. Within six days, it collected $1.7 million. The fund still exists today as the Realtors Relief Foundation.

“(Sept. 11) was our Pearl Harbor,” says 2001 NAR President-Elect Martin Edwards. “(NAR President Richard Mendenhall and I) agreed that Realtors were going to want to do something to help this country.”

Edwards and Mendenhall called in then Chief Financial Officer Dale Stinton and Frank Sibley, senior vice president of communications and convention. They reached out to the state associations affected by the terrorist attacks, and they created a mission: No family would lose its home as a result of the attacks. NAR would collect funds to help surviving family members pay their mortgage or rent for a defined period as they tried to get their lives in order.

The Realtors Housing Relief Fund officially launched on Sept. 12, 2001 – the day after the attacks – with 100 percent of all funds promised to surviving family members. NAR kicked off the fund with a $1 million donation, but money also poured in from local and state associations, and from individuals.

“I was the executive vice president of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors on 9/11,” recalls Florida Realtors CEO John Fridlington as the staff took a moment to remember the tragedy. “Since two of the planes took off from Boston, we had local families directly impacted by the disaster. In the weeks that followed, Realtors hand-delivered relief fund checks to the victim’s families; I personally visited four homes. It was hard, but I’ve never been prouder of our Realtor family, nor more aware of the vital work America’s Realtors do for our nation’s homeowners.”

Mortgage experts polled by Bankrate.com this week can’t agree on what will happen next, with 1/3 (31%) predicting they’ll go up, 1/3 (31%) saying they’ll go down, and 1/3 (38%) expecting no change over the short term.
WASHINGTON – Sept. 9, 2011 – Fixed mortgage rates fell this week to the lowest levels in six decades.

The average rate for the 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.12 percent, down from 4.22 percent, Freddie Mac said Thursday. It’s the lowest level on records dating back to 1971. Freddie Mac said the last time rates were cheaper was 1951, when most long-term home loans lasted just 20 or 25 years.

The average rate on a 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, fell to 3.33 percent from 3.39 percent. That’s the lowest on records dating to 1991 and likely the lowest ever, according to economists.

Energy efficient labels...

Most efficient’ labels debut for appliances
WASHINGTON – Sept. 8, 2011 – The Energy Star program has been criticized for allowing too many home appliances to carry the energy efficiency label, so the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy, which jointly run Energy Star, announced the rollout of a new label – “most efficient.”

The “most efficient” label is reserved for the utmost energy-efficient washers, dryers and other appliances.

The Energy Star Most Efficient program will start on a pilot basis through the rest of the year, USA Today reports. The designation will be reserved for the top 5 percent of energy-efficient products.

Appliances first eligible for the designation will include clothes washers, heating and cooling systems, televisions and refrigerator-freezers. In the fall, the EPA will consider new categories for the label.

The “most efficient” products must “demonstrate efficiency performance that is truly exceptional, inspirational or leading-edge – consistent with the interests of environmentally motivated consumers and early adopters,” according to EPA’s guidelines.

To view a list of products that have so far received the new label, visit energystar.gov/mostefficient.

Super low mortgage rates.

Mortgage Rate Trend Index
Expect rates to stay the same (42%) or go down (33%) say most mortgage experts polled this week by Bankrate.com. The remaining 25% foresee an increase.
WASHINGTON – Sept. 2, 2011 – Fixed mortgages were mostly flat this week after hitting their lowest levels in decades. .

The average rate on the 30-year fixed mortgage stayed at 4.22 percent for the second straight week, Freddie Mac said Thursday. The rate hit 4.15 percent two weeks ago, the lowest level on records dating to 1971.

The average rate on the 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, fell to 3.39 percent from 3.44 percent. Two weeks ago, it reached 3.36 – the lowest rate on records dating to 1991 and likely the lowest ever, according to economists.

Mortgage rates typically track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. Yields rose this week as investors shifted money back to a more stable stock market.

Seven steps to take before you buy a home.

By doing your homework before you buy, you follow these steps to ensure your home search is fun and productive.

Most potential homebuyers are a smidge daunted by the fact that they’re about to agree to a hefty mortgage that they’ll be paying for the next few decades. The best way to relieve that anxiety is to be confident you’re purchasing the best home at a price you can afford with the most favorable financing. These seven steps will help you make smart decisions about your biggest purchase.


1. Decide how much home you can afford

Generally, you can afford a home priced 2 to 3 times your gross income. Remember to consider costs every homeowner must cover: property taxes, insurance, maintenance, utilities, and community association fees, if applicable, as well as costs specific to your family, such as day care if you plan to have children.

2. Develop your home wish list

Be honest about which features you must have and which you’d like to have. Handicap accessibility for an aging parent or special needs child is a must. Granite countertops and stainless steel appliances are in the bonus category. Come up with your top-five must-haves and top-five wants to help you focus your search and make a logical, rather than emotional, choice when home shopping.

3. Select where you want to live

Make a list of your top-five community priorities, such as commute time, schools, and recreational facilities. Ask your REALTOR® to help you identify three to four target neighborhoods based on your priorities.

4. Start saving

Have you saved enough money to qualify for a mortgage and cover your downpayment? Ideally, you should have 20% of the purchase price set aside for a downpayment, but some lenders allow as little as 5% down. A small downpayment preserves your savings for emergencies.

However, the lower your downpayment, the higher the loan amount you’ll need to qualify for, and if you still qualify, the higher your monthly payment. Your downpayment size can also influence your interest rate and the type of loan you can get.

Finally, if your downpayment is less than 20%, you’ll be required to purchase private mortgage insurance. Depending on the size of your loan, PMI can add hundreds to your monthly payment. Check with your state and local government for mortgage and downpayment assistance programs for first-time buyers.

5. Ask about all the costs before you sign

A downpayment is just one homebuying cost. Your REALTOR® can tell you what other costs buyers commonly pay in your area—including home inspections, attorneys’ fees, and transfer fees of 2% to 7% of the home price. Tally up the extras you’ll also want to buy after you move-in, such as window coverings and patio furniture for your new yard.

6. Get your credit in order

A credit report details your borrowing history, including any late payments and bad debts, and typically includes a credit score. Lenders lean heavily on your credit report and credit score in determining whether, how much, and at what interest rate to lend for a home. Most require a minimum credit score of 620 for a home mortgage.

You’re entitled to free copies of your credit reports annually from the major credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. Order and then pore over them to ensure the information is accurate, and try to correct any errors before you buy. If your credit score isn’t up to snuff, the easiest ways to improve it are to pay every bill on time and pay down high credit card debt.

7. Get prequalified

Meet with a lender to get a prequalification letter that says how much house you’re qualified to buy. Start gathering the paperwork your lender says it needs. Most want to see W-2 forms verifying your employment and income, copies of pay stubs, and two to four months of banking statements.

If you’re self-employed, you’ll need your current profit and loss statement, a current balance sheet, and personal and business income tax returns for the previous two years.

Consider your financing options. The longer the loan, the smaller your monthly payment. Fixed-rate mortgages offer payment certainty; an adjustable-rate mortgage offers a lower monthly payment. However, an adjustable-rate mortgage may adjust dramatically. Be sure to calculate your affordability at both the lowest and highest possible ARM rate.

30 Year mortgage rates fall to all time low.

Rate on 30-year mortgage falls to lowest on record.
Mortgage Rate Trend Index
Almost half (47%) of industry experts polled by Bankrate.com this week expect no changes in mortgage rates over the short term. However, one third (33%) foresee an increase, while 20% predict further declines.
WASHINGTON – Aug. 19, 2011 – The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage has fallen to its lowest level on records dating to 1971.

The rate on the most popular mortgage dipped to 4.15 percent from 4.32 percent a week ago, Freddie Mac said Thursday. Its previous low of 4.17 percent was reached in November.

The last time long-term rates were lower was in the 1950s, when 30-year loans weren’t widely available. Most long-term home loans lasted 20 or 25 years.

Get a cool tax credit with that new air conditioner or furnace.

Florida county green tax incentives
Some Florida cities and counties offer their own tax incentives for green building. For a reference list, visit the U.S. Department of Energy website.
WASHINGTON – Aug. 25, 2011 – There are few certainties in this world, but here’s one: When it’s hot enough to fry an egg and a serving of hash browns on the sidewalk, your air conditioner will shudder and die.

A new air conditioner could save your sanity and quite possibly your marriage, but a new heating and air conditioning system doesn’t come cheap. The good news: You may be able to get some of that money back when you file your tax return. The bad news? You would have been eligible for a much larger tax credit if you had replaced your HVAC last year.

In December, Congress extended tax credits for energy-efficient home improvements through 2011, but it also pared them back. The maximum tax credit you can claim for most energy-efficient home improvements in 2011 is $500, down from a maximum credit of $1,500 in 2009 and 2010. The law also caps the amount you can claim for specific projects.

For example, the maximum tax credit you can claim for an energy-efficient heating and cooling system is $300, says Helen O’Planick, an enrolled agent in Manchester, Pa. The maximum credit you can claim to replace your leaky windows is $200.

Still, a modest tax credit is better than none at all. Homeowners who are considering energy-efficient improvements should take advantage of it while it lasts, because there’s no guarantee the credit will be extended, O’Planick says.

If you’ve made your home more energy-efficient this year, or plan to do so in the near future, here’s what you need to know:

The $500 credit is a lifetime maximum. If you’ve claimed $500 or more for energy-saving home improvements since 2006 – the first year the credits became available – you’re out of luck.

The maximum applies to the taxpayer, not the property. For example, suppose you claimed $500 in energy-efficient improvements in 2007, then sold the house and bought a new one. You can’t claim the credit for any work done on your new house, because you’ve already hit your lifetime maximum, O’Planick says.

The credit is limited to your primary residence. A new heat pump may reduce the cost of heating your ski chalet, but you can’t claim a tax credit for it.

The contractor or manufacturer should be able to provide a statement certifying that the product or component qualifies for the tax credit. You don’t have to submit this with your tax return, but should keep it with your tax records, along with your receipt for the purchase.

In general, windows, insulation and other energy-efficient home improvements qualify for the credit as long as they have an Energy Star designation. Energy Star products must meet energy-efficiency guidelines established by the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Not all Energy Star products qualify for the tax credit. O’Planick says she often hears from taxpayers who believe they’re eligible for a federal tax credit because they purchased a new Energy Star refrigerator or washer-dryer. These appliances may cut your energy bill, but they don’t qualify for the energy-efficient tax credit, O’Planick says. Ovens, ceiling fans, room air conditioners and light fixtures don’t qualify, either.

However, while such products are ineligible for the federal tax credit, they may qualify for a state rebate. Last year, three dozen states offered rebates to residents who purchased Energy Star appliances. Most of those programs have been closed, but a few states are still accepting applications. For more information, go to energysavers.gov.

Homeowners who plan more ambitious energy-efficiency improvements are eligible for a larger tax credit and have more time to claim it. You can claim a tax credit of up to 30 percent of the cost of geothermal heat pumps, solar-energy systems, wind-energy systems and fuel cells. There is no cap on this credit, and it’s available through 2016.

There’s still time to claim a credit for energy-efficient home improvements made in 2009 or 2010. If you failed to claim the credits for the year in which you made the improvements, you can amend your return, O’Planick says.

It’s worth the effort: Improvements made in those years are eligible for a maximum lifetime credit of $1,500. You can find more information about the tax credit and eligible home improvements at http://www.energystar.gov/.

Housing affordability hovers near record level !!!

August 22, 2011 – Aug. 22, 2011 – Nationwide housing affordability during the second quarter of 2011 hovered for the 10th consecutive quarter near its highest level in the more than 20 years, according to National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo Housing Opportunity Index (HOI).

According to the HOI, families earning the national median income of $64,200 could afford 72.6 percent of all new and existing homes sold in the second quarter. The affordability measure dipped slightly from the record high of 74.6 percent set in the first quarter, but it remained above the 70 percent threshold initially achieved in the first quarter of 2009.

“At a time when homeownership is within reach of more households than it has been for more than two decades, and interest rates are at historically low levels, the sluggish economy and the extremely tight credit conditions confronting homebuyers and builders remain significant obstacles to many potential home sales,” says Bob Nielsen, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). “That said, however, some housing markets across the country have stabilized and are beginning to show signs of a budding recovery.”

Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, Ohio-Pa., was the most affordable major housing market in the country during the second quarter of the year. In Youngstown, 93.7 percent of all homes sold were affordable to households earning the area’s median family income of $54,900.

Also ranking near the top of the most affordable major metro housing markets were Syracuse, N.Y.; Indianapolis-Carmel, Ind.; Dayton, Ohio; and Lakeland-Winter Haven, Fla.

Among smaller housing markets, the most affordable was Kokomo, Ind., where 95.8 percent of homes sold during the second quarter of 2011 were affordable to families earning a median income of $59,100. Other smaller housing markets ranking near the top of the index included Wheeling, W.Va.-Ohio; Lansing-East Lansing, Mich.; Bay City, Mich.; and Sandusky, Ohio.

New York-White Plains-Wayne, N.Y.-N.J., led the nation as the least affordable major housing market during the second quarter of 2011. In New York, 25.2 percent of all homes sold during the quarter were affordable to those earning the area’s median income of $67,400. It marks the 13th consecutive quarter that the New York metropolitan division has held this position.

Other major metro areas near the bottom of the affordability index included San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City, Calif.; Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine, Calif.; Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, Calif.; and Honolulu, respectively.

Ocean City, N.J., where 40.9 percent of the homes were affordable to families earning the median income of $70,100, was the least affordable of the smaller metro housing markets in the country during the second quarter. Other small metro areas ranking near the bottom included Laredo, Texas; Santa Cruz-Watsonville, Calif.; San Luis Obispo-Paso Robles, Calif.; and Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-Goleta, Calif.

Mortgage rates fall again, 30-year near record low.

Mortgage rates fall again, 30-year near record low
Mortgage Rate Trend Index
Experts polled by Bankrate.com this week remain divided on the short-term fate of mortgage rates. An equal number (36%) expect a decrease or, at least, no change. The remaining 28% foresee an increase.
WASHINGTON – Aug. 12, 2011 – Fixed mortgage rates fell to at or near record lows. That’s good news for the few who can afford to buy a home or are able to refinance. But the rates have done little to lift the ailing housing market.

Freddie Mac said Thursday that the average rate for the 30-year fixed mortgage fell to 4.32 percent this week from 4.39 percent. The 30-year loan hit a record low of 4.17 percent in mid-November.

The average rate on a 15-year fixed mortgage, a popular refinancing option, fell to a record low of 3.50 percent, from last week’s record rate of 3.54 percent.

Mortgage rates tend to track the yield on the 10-year Treasury note. A weakening U.S. economy has led many investors to shift money from stocks to bonds, which are seen as safer bets. That has pushed Treasury yields to historic lows.

In theory, low mortgage rates should provide a boost to the troubled housing market. But so far they haven’t helped much.

Sales of previously occupied homes fell in June for a third straight month to a seasonally adjusted 4.77 million. The pace is lagging behind the 4.91 million homes sold last year – the fewest since 1997.

New-home sales also declined in June and are trailing last year’s sales, which were the worst on records dating back nearly half a century.

Many people can’t take advantage of the low mortgage rates. Banks are insisting on higher credit scores and larger down payments from applicants. Others have too little equity invested in their homes to qualify for loans.

To calculate average mortgage rates, Freddie Mac collects rates from lenders across the country on Monday through Wednesday of each week.

The average rate on a five-year adjustable-rate mortgage fell to 3.13 percent, its lowest level on records that go back to January 2005. Last week’s reading of 3.18 percent also was a record low.

The average rate for one-year adjustable-rate loans plunged to 2.89 percent from 3.02 percent last week. That’s a record low dating back to 1984.

The rates do not include extra fees known as points. One point is equal to 1 percent of the total loan amount.

The average fees for the 30-year and 15-year fixed loans was 0.7 point and the five-year and one-year adjustable-rate loans was 0.5 point.

How to get help with down payment to buy a home.

The information is very please go to previous posting to read the six ways to get help.

For more information of homes for sale go to http://www.beachhomesdaytona.com/
Most home buyers’ biggest hurdle is coming up with the cash for a sensible down payment. Gone are the days of zero-down loans, so if that was your plan, you’re going to need a new one! Coming up with a down payment for a home is a challenge because it’s not chump change we're talking about, here. The down payment on a $200,000 house, for example, will run you anywhere from $7,000 (on an FHA loan) to $40,000!

That might seem like an insurmountable amount of coin to come up with, but it’s actually more doable than you might think. Some buyers will simply save up their own cash, even if it takes many, many moons. The good news is that if you still need some help to boost your down-payment savings, there are resources you can harness to power your home-buying pursuit.

  1. The FHA Bridal Registry works like a traditional registry, but is more flexible. The registrants visit their choice of FHA mortgage lenders and set up what essentially is a custodial savings account for the sole purpose of funding their down payment. The couple’s (or individual’s) family and friends can either deposit funds directly into the account or give the cash or check to the couple or individual, who then deposits it into the account. The account’s flexibility also goes beyond that of traditional down payment gift rules that are applicable to FHA loans, which are detailed below in insider secret #2. With the FHA Bridal Registry Program, the only gift documentation required is “lender and borrower certification of the funds.”
  2. Family gifts.  Most lenders will allow home buyers to apply gift money from family members toward their down payment - within guidelines, that is. First, the lender will require a letter from the giver verifying that it in fact is a gift and not a loan. (They generally frown upon it being a loan because it would add to the buyer’s debt and change their debt-to-income ratio.) And second, the person giving you the money must be a relative. The reasoning here is that a friend will most likely expect you to repay the money, whereas a relative won’t.
  3. FHA loans will allow the gift to make up any portion or all of the buyer’s down payment, many conventional (non-FHA) loan programs will restrict the proportion of a buyer’s down payment that can come from gift money.  The lender may also have specific ways they want to see the money go into and out of your accounts. Before you accept a gift toward your down payment, be sure to check with your mortgage broker or loan rep to be sure that you’re dotting all the right i's and crossing all the right t's.Your Employer.  Some companies offer assistance programs to employees. Most are government, university, large company and financial industry employers. One example is safety workers: n some areas, safety workers like firefighters and police can have access to down payment grants from their employers if they buy properties in the city where they are on-call as first responders. Also, many large colleges and universities, very large companies and banks and lending institutions offer down payment help and have below-market-rate mortgages set up for faculty members and staffers.  Check with yFor more information of homes for sale of river front homes, ocean front homes, foreclosures, condominiums or cheap homes go to http://www.beachhomesdaytona.com/
  4. City/County/State Programs.  Some states, counties and cities still offer programs that lend or give home buyers some assistance for down payments. These programs vary widely in scope - for instance, many target buyers with low and moderate incomes, while some seek to help the buyers of foreclosed or fixer-upper type homes. Some don’t have to repaid - meaning they are given as grants and are forgiven entirely if the buyer lives in the property for 30 years, but must be repaid if the buyer sells or rents the home out before the 30 years elapses. The programs pretty much all have some sort of homeowner education component that requires applicants to take personal finance and homeownership preparedness classes before they can receive funds. To learn more, visit your city, county and state websites to learn about programs that might be able to help you.
  5. Your Human Resources department to see if any such program is available to you.
  6. Your Retirement Funds.  Many financial advisors would advise against this, but if you have a 401K or Roth IRA account and some years to go before retirement, you might be able to tap into it or even borrow against your own funds for your down payment. Currently, you can take up to $10,000 out of your Traditional IRA with no penalty to put toward the purchase of your first home, but you will be taxed.  You can take as much as you want out of your Roth IRA contributions with no penalty or taxes, though, and as much as $10,000 from your earnings penalty-free for your down payment.  The rules get a little tricky, here, so definitely check in with your tax and financial advisors.
  7. And while you can’t similarly draw from your 401K, many retirement and pension plans will allow you to borrow the money against your funds, then repay it to yourself – at interest. So the choice there comes down to paying your lender back with interest or paying yourself with interest. That choice should be you! But first, get some advice from your CPA or financial planner. This option might not make financial sense for your particular situation.
