Boy, competition’s getting fierce up in this real estate market, don’t you think? Home prices are rising. Down payment averages are rising. And the Chinese are still looking to Texas (among other places in the U.S. Let’s face it: America’s looking great. But as Americans, we still want the better bang for our buck! And if there’s one thing that still will cost a pretty penny, it’s a house!
It’s a necessity in the industry to protect the lenders. In fact, that’s what allows lenders to offer such low down payment requirements. But here’s the deal – you, the borrower, still need to pay for it. And many, many borrowers might not even realize that mortgage insurance will come out of your pocket. Plain and simple.
Thankfully, certain home mortgage programs offer competitive prices for mortgage insurance, and FHA is one of them – 1.75% of the loan amount is what you can expect to pay for insurance on a mortgage loan. Not too bad. That’s somewhat better than the VA home loan – another favorable program for low-income situations – with a mortgage insurance percentage of about 2.4%. But did you know there’s one home mortgage program out there that beats even the FHA?
That’s grade A premium beef in the real estate industry, with a percentage of just 2% of the initial loan amount – and to make it even more interesting, the annual mortgage insurance charge is just .5% of the remaining balance over the course of 12 following payments. A much better deal than the .85% annual charge the FHA imposes.
Want to learn more about the USDA home mortgage? Check it out right here. Nothing against FHA, but maybe you want something a bit better. Just make sure you qualify for it! Because when we talk about grade A premium beef cuts, we don’t mean small shanks.

Buying Farmland and Some Cows Can ACTUALLY Save You on #Taxes?
It's true — much to the dismay of many of the middle class, and it's sneaky. But thanks to a slight loophole in tax law, many of the wealthy have been able to take their massive properties on rural land assessed for millions of dollars, get the "use-value assessment" typically reserved for farmers and obtain a property tax credit.
What then happens? It's that tax credit bringing the value of, say, a $71.4MM valued property down to as little as $290K! They're basically able to have that rural land at such a low cost in terms of property tax that it almost seems like a steal (it is, actually).
You simply need to prove that you live on the acquired rural land. That's it. You don't have to do any farming, tilling the soil, milking cows or maintaining a chicken coop. File your property taxes under this tax credit, and you're golden.

We’re sure many wonder just how people get rich: tenacity. That’s the only way we can describe it. It all boils down to how you buy a candy bar for a buck and then sell it for two bucks. Simple as that. Increase the scale as high as you want to go, and you have a major money maker on your hands.
