How do you move to a new city (such as Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, or Seattle) where you don't know anyone, don't have a job or housing lined up, and the only money you have is for a plane/bus ticket there and for a days worth of food? How can you get housing there and a job quickly/easily?

if I did a background check and this came up? Should I ask them to explain or just move to the next applicant?

I have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. In addition to making my monthly mortgage payments, if I pay towards my principal, will I save on interest? If yes, does that mean once the principal amount has been paid off, there is no more interest?

I would certainly think it would if we have a housing crash like we've had before.

I always hear of people buying their home for 170k way back when and the same home being worth 300k now. Has this increase in home value reached it's peak? If I buy a home today for 250k will it be worth much more in the future or just a little bit more?

Right before my wedding in July our landlord tells us they are selling the condo and we have to be out by the end of august. They said it was nothing to... show more

Best answer: If your credit is good and you have stable employment you could likely get a mortgage for three times your annual pay ($180k in your case). You'd need a big down payment. $200k is a more reasonable target price. Even at that, I wouldn't take a mortgage as big as three times my annual salary. You'd be... show more

It seems like all landlords just want to collect the rent and not fix or take care of anything, or they want to know everything about you and be in your business constantly. My current landlord calls me at least 5 times everyday to talk about nothing, stops me everytime i go in or out, asking me where im going or... show more
