re: Any suggestions on where to get a land loan? - cdl2006
When I bought my lot, First American Bank had financed the development for the developer and offered a special financing rate and lower down payments for the lots. They also didn't require an appraisal. I'm not sure how common this is, but it might be worth looking into. ...

re: First Time Homebuyer purchasing a home without 20% down. - cdl2006
While true for a FHA loan, that is not the case for a conventional. It only needs to stay on for two years. You can get a conventional loan with only putting 5% down. ...

re: Buying HUD Homes - cdl2006
We bought one at the end of last year. Since it was in the owner occupant period, we have to live in it a year before selling. It's a bit of a pain to get utilities turned on for inspections. We had to get authorization and they could only be on for 72 hours. Also, our lender required us to give the...

re: Why are my lights suddenly flickering when my ac starts - cdl2006

I checked the voltage at a receptacle when it happened and it was dropping below 100 volts. I then was able to verify the same thing was ha...

re: Nest or Ecobee thermostat? - cdl2006
I installed an Ecobee3 about a month ago and have loved it so far. I live in a two story with the thermostat upstairs. Since we spend a lot of time downstairs, the ability to have the other sensor downstairs has been great. I've also set it up with the Life 360 app and IFTT so that as soon as the...

re: 2015 Chevy Suburban LTZ - cdl2006
My wife and I bought an Acadia in November in preparation for child 3 and 4. Now that they are here, I see that it was a big mistake. You put a stroller in the back and your cargo space is gone. Take an overnight trip and it is a struggle to find space for bags. We will make it work for a little whi...

re: Advice on Pension Lump Sum - cdl2006
It all has to be rolled into an IRA until he is old enough to take a distribution without penalty. That will be about a year. At that point, he plans to withdraw about 75% of the money. I am not sure how much he is getting, but I would guess it is somewhere around $50k. Just trying to see if money m...

re: House appraisal. All utilities turned on? - cdl2006
