The Mortgage Professor: Transitioning to double-digit mortgage interest rates

For the last 24 years, mortgage interest rates have been in the single-digits, supporting a widespread presumption in the mortgage industry that this is the normal state of affairs. Yet the rate was 10 percent or higher during most of the 11 year period 1979-1990. Given this history and the current outlook for the economy and monetary policy, it is prudent to consider the consequences of a return to double-digits, and to take whatever measures are available to soften their impact.The need for preventative measures is particularly acute in the reverse mortgage market.

Real estate Q&A: Do-it-yourself deed causes problems for homeowner

Q: Several years ago, my brother and I bought a foreclosed house from the bank. He and I split the money, but only my name went on the deed.

We made a claim against our title insurance policy that was denied. What gives?

The Mortgage Professor: What are 'no-cost mortgages,' and are they a good deal?

A no-cost mortgage is one on which all lender fees are waived, and (subject to the possible exceptions described below) other fees are paid by the lender. The quid pro quo is a relatively high interest rate, which makes the NCM costly for borrowers who expect to have their mortgage a long time. But if the borrower has limited cash, avoiding an upfront cash drain may be much more compelling than the higher interest cost spread over many years.
