The Spring real estate season is just around the corner, you’re thinking it’s time to buy a house. So what’s your fist move? Get an agent? Start cruising for open houses? Nope. Step one should be getting pre-approved for a mortgage. But just because you’re pre-approved doesn’t mean the house you want to buy is. On this Moneywise, Rob West and Steve Moore talk to mortgage expert Dale Vermillion about avoiding problem properties that could derail your home loan.
Next, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and firstname.lastname@example.org about the following:
- When you withdraw money from your 401(k), do you tithe on that money?
- If you have $65,000 in your checking account and you're only making 1% interest, where can you put the money where you’ll make more on it?
