Should you co-sign for someone if they ask you? Well… you really need to think long and hard about this and make sure you’re ready and able to take on that responsibility. People often get confused when they hear the term co-sign. Sometimes people think they are not really responsible for the debt; they think they are merely helping someone out. Make no mistake; if you co-sign a loan for someone, it is exactly the same as if you borrowed the money yourself! By co-signing on a loan you are accepting full responsibility for payment of that loan, including late charges and any fees associated with collecting the debt.
I have spent nearly 15 years consulting borrowers on mortgage financing. In that time, I have seen a great number of scenarios and questions come up after people have received their pre-approvals. Some issues have derailed their plans for a new home while some small mishaps have been easy to navigate around. All of them, however, have caused additional documentation and worst of all, additional time in the process! Let’s look at a few do’s and don’ts to keep in mind AFTER you receive your pre-approval.
CONVENIENCE: what does that mean to you? In today’s fast paced world convenience is an important factor for many people as they go about their daily routine.
For some, convenience is not the first consideration. Some people may go to a particular gas station for the price or the brand of gas. Some go to a certain grocery store because they like the variety in the store or the meat or produce they can get there.
What are they, and what are the benefits?
Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) are a staple of modern society. First put into use in 1967 by Barclays Bank in north London, there are about three million ATMs worldwide today. Billions of people throughout the world use these devices to conduct the most basic banking functions. Not only do they provide convenient access to cash withdrawals, they allow customers to check their balances, transfer funds between accounts, and most importantly make deposits.
