30-Year Fixed Rate Mortgage Rate Nears Two-Year Low | Freddie Mac

Top 5 Reasons You Should Own a Home
1. Tried & true way to generate wealth. A $100,000 home in 1980 is worth $600,000 today.
2. Create capital, leverage your home equity as collateral and borrow against it.
3. Rent will continue to increase, a mortgage payment won't. Rent has tripled since 1980.
4. Interest rates are almost as low as ever. Even just a 1% increase in the interest rate on a median-priced home equals nearly a $300 increase in mortgage payment per month and $100,000 over the life of the loan.
5. Your kids will lead better lives. Future generations will benefit from wealth creation and savings. And studies have shown homeownership has a positive impact on children's health, high school graduation and college attendance.

Millionaire to Millennials: Don’t Rent a Home… Buy!

“Homeowners are worth 40 times more than renters. Now, that first home doesn’t need to be a dream home, it can be a very small home. You might literally have to buy a small studio apartment, but that’s how you get started.”

In a CNBC article, self-made millionaire David Bach explained that: “The biggest mistake millennials are making is not buying their first home.” He goes on to say that, “If you want to build real financial security, real wealth for your lifetime, then you need to buy a home.” Bach went on to...

"Highlights" of the New Tax Law:

* The seven Income-tax brackets were adjusted downward, and tax rates were correspondingly reduced to 10%, 12%, 22%, 32%, 35%, and 37%, creating a short-term tax savings for all taxpayers.

* The standard deduction was nearly doubled to $12,000 for individuals and $24,000 for joint returns.

* But the personal and dependent exemptions, which are $4,150 per person this year, have been eliminated.

* A deduction of no more than $10,000 is allowed for state and local taxes (SALT), which include state taxes on income, personal property, and real estate. There was no cap under prior law.

* The mortgage interest deduction (MID) is limited to $750,000 for new loans taken out after December 15, 2017. The MID of $1 million is grandfathered in for existing loans.

*The MID is retained for second homes and refinances (but not beyond the amount being refinanced). The MID on home equity debt has been eliminated (unless the proceeds are used to substantially improve the property).

*20% deduction of qualified business income for pass throughs including independent contractors and sole proprietors up to $157,500 (or double for joint filers). This deduction is even available for non-itemizers.

***Please talk to your accountant or tax professional to see how these changes will affect you.***

Housing Prices are NOT Heading for Another Crash

Bay Area real estate continues to see steady (not spiking) appreciation in value, as compared to what happen previous to the crash. This is an example of a strong and stable value growth pattern. With extremely low inventory and high demand, it will continue to be the case. It will take years for housing to catch up to inventory needs, so this dynamic will stay static for some time. Additionally, the Bay Area is the hub of technology and it will continue to be a magnet for workers, thereby increasing demand for years to come.

It's a great time to buy or move over your equity to a new property. Read more below!

As home values continue to increase at levels greater than historic norms, some are concerned that we are heading for another crash like the one we experienced ten years ago. We recently explained that the lenient lending standards of the previous decade (which created false demand) no longer exist.
