Adverse Credit Home Loan

Finding a lender

The very first step on the path to finding an adverse credit home loan is to find yourself a lender who is willing to offer you a loan. This may seem like a near impossible task to you, but in fact there are a fair number of lenders who might be able to help you. Property is an attractive item for lenders because if they need to take possession then it will be relatively easy to sell. Take the time to look around to find a lender you are happy with.

One of the best ways of finding a lender is by using the Internet. This saves you the time of travelling to lenders who cannot help you, and also allows you to search specifically for those lenders who specialise in offering adverse credit home loans. As well as searching online you should visit mortgage lenders and banks in your area. The more research you do, then the more likely you are to find the first adverse credit home loan for your needs.

Getting pre-approval

Once you have found the lender you think is right for you, then you need to get pre-approval if possible, Pre-approval means that the lender carries out a number of the credit checks necessary to approve you for a loan, so that they can offer you a guaranteed amount that they will lend you. This allows you to begin looking for a property with a budget in mind, as well as showing sellers that you have the correct finance in place to purchase the property. If a specific lender will not give you pre-approval, then try and find one that does.

Buying a house

Now that you have your pre-approved adverse credit home loan, it is time to find yourself a property. You can look for properties being sold by individuals, or consult a realtor who can help you find a property.

Time Banking

The basic idea of time banking is that everyone can contribute to the welfare of the community by making exchange of services with the others. As an example, if a person needs his car to be repaired, a second person needs flowers for his front yard and another person needs a new table for his kitchen, they could make a deal one with another, even if they don’t have the money to pay for these services. In order to make these kind of exchanges, people who generally don’t meet need to interact, and they need an infrastructure for doing this. This infrastructure is now here.

Time banking is based on time currencies, the units of time exchange. The name of the time currency is different from one time bank to another, but, in every situation, one hour of work has an equal value with one hour of any other kind of work.

The person who had the greatest influence on the time banking movement is Edgar Cahn, a former lawyer. While he was recovering after a heart attack he began thinking about the influence of the 80 hours of work a week on the relationships with his community and family, and imagining the terrible effects of medical emergencies on the uninsured and underinsured. In the 1980s Cahn made known his ideas and he created the concept named time banking, as a solution for these problems. After bringing the time banking concept to Maine, Cahn launched a pilot time bank here in 1998.

Time banking is expanding and time banks, such as Cahn’s Time Dollar networks, now exits in many states of the world, including every state of the U.S., Canada, Japan and Western Europe. For instance, in the U.K. there are more than 140 time banks which have more than 5,000 members. One of these time banks, Time For Health, has been so effective that the U.K.’s National Health Service has commissioned a study on how it works.

Offering equal pay for equal time, time banking has positive effects on women and people of color, whose work has been often under-compensated in the market economy. A proof is that Spain’s time banking movement’s slogan was in the beginning, “Sharing: Promoting the Equality of Time Among Men and Women”. Time banking is also used to offer medical care to the uninsured and underinsured, because many of the members earn too much money to receive free services, but they don’t get health insurance through their jobs.

Edgar Cahn has a new purpose: to create accessibility for groups that are deprived of their citizenship rights and to increase leaders’ consciousness of race and class issues in time banking.

About Increasing Cash Flow

Lets suppose you own a duplex and your monthly mortgage payment including taxes and insurance is approximately $1200.00.

Now lets suppose you have a tenant on each floor with a one year lease, and you charge each tenant $850.00 a month to live there. This is a total of $1700.00 paid to you on a monthly basis.

Once you have paid your mortgage of $1200.00, you are left with a balance of $500.00, this would be your monthly cash flow from the income producing property.

If you are looking to increase your monthly cash flow, one of the easiest ways to do it would be to raise the rent. This is by far one of the most effective and common ways of increasing cash flow.

Another way to increase cash flow depending on the amount of equity you have established in a property would be to use some of that investment property’s equity to purchase another income producing property.

Using the same principal of charging more than the amount of your total expenses on the property, you will once again be increasing your cash flow.

Keep in mind, when doing any kind of repairs to the home, including landscaping, make sure you save the receipts to be used as a write off. This to will help to reduce earnings, resulting in cash flow in the way of an annual tax return.
