BREAKING! The Eviction Problem Just Got WORSE 😧

The eviction moratorium has completely expired and the US Supreme Court ruled against the CDC wanting to extend the moratorium. In addition to this, recently the Federal Unemployment Benefit also expired this week and the Biden Administration has no intention of bringing the unemployment benefit back as the economy is starting to open up.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uaTUQruQjKQ In this video, I’m going to unpack what this all means and how real estate investors could potentially benefit from the eviction

How to pay off a 30 year home mortgage in 5 to 7 years. This is the most up to date version of our explanation on how you can pay off a 30-year mortgage in just 5 to 7 years on average. In the video, I will demonstrate how a banking strategy can be used to pay off a 30 year home mortgage in just 5-7 years without sending double payments, changing your current level of income, without refinancing, without loan modification, and without hurting your credit.

This video is intended to be an educational video. This video should not be taken as financial, legal, and/or tax advice. Sam Kwak is a Certified Credit Counselor #11613. This is not a credit counseling session. I suggest that all viewers consult with professionals prior to implementing any or all parts of our strategy. RECAP OF THE VIDEO: I start this video with an explanation as to why a 30-year mortgage is like a trap for 21st-century homeowners. The reason being is that Americans (and Canadians) experience frequent life changes that cause them to move or they are eluded to refinancing because the refinance rates might be low. Unfortunately, such an event happens before 7-10 years into the mortgage. In the first 5-7 years, the vast majority of your mortgage payment goes straight to interest payment. A very small portion of your monthly payment actually goes to pay down the principal balance of the mortgage. Fortunately, there is a way to escape this. We’re going to introduce a new tool to help us with this called a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) A HELOC is different than a traditional mortgage in several ways. The two main things to remember are (1) a HELOC is a revolving line of credit – which means you have the ability to pay back and re-use any available limit of the HELOC; and (2) a HELOC uses average daily interest calculation (simple interest) instead of an amortization interest calculation which is used by your 30-year mortgage. There’s a common myth out there saying that HELOC interest rates are always variable and higher. This isn’t true… There are HELOCs out there with fixed interests rate and some even have lower interest rates. Now, in 2021 – the best version of this strategy (in my opinion) is to use a 1st lien HELOC to completely replace your mortgage. By doing this, we now only have one debt against your home. No more 30 year amortized mortgage! Just a 1st lien HELOC. With the 1st lien HELOC, you’re now able to deposit all of your income (and event savings) into the HELOC balance to reduce the average daily balance – which ultimately means a lower interest amount you’ll pay on a daily basis. Doing this will keep the interest bill low while still being able to draw the funds out for expenses, emergencies, or even a rare investment opportunity. Now, you may have questions such as a.) couldn’t the banks freeze my HELOC? b.) are the banks still lending HELOCs? c.) how do you qualify for a HELOC? d.) What if I don’t have any equity? – I answer most of these questions on our […]

If Banks Were Actually Honest…

What if Banks and Bankers were ACTUALLY Honest about all the hidden fees and their “secret” schemes to make money off of you… You’re getting a mortgage and you’re thinking ‘What can ever go wrong?’. Well, in this comedy sketch, we want to show you what it might look like if bankers were actually honest about all the mortgage closing costs, fees, how the banks make their money, how they want you to refinance every 5-7 years, and what they really think about mortgage rates and refinance rates. Enjoy! 📉 Learn How to Pay Off Your Mortgage in 5-7 Years (On Average): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3f-ebCjeH8o Honest Banker – Played by Sam Kwak Mr. Enslavedski – Played by Sam Kwak In this comedy sketch, we wanted to highlight and exaggerate some situations that every borrower and banker go through when it comes to shopping for a mortgage or for a refinance loan. Typically, banks want you to play the game of “shopping for rates”. The banks REALLY love 30-year mortgages because in the first 5-7 years, you’re really not paying much principal but you are paying a ton of interest. This is often known as the “front-loaded interest” zone. The banks know that majority of the borrowers will come back to refinance or get a new mortgage in 5-7 years. But hardly any borrowers make real progress in building equity in only 5-7 years with a 30-year mortgage. Typically on a 30-year mortgage, banks can make up to twice as much as the original mortgage balance. This is why it’s so profitable for banks to lend on a 30-year amortization. Plus, the Mortgage-Backed Security industry loves these 30-year mortgages because they’re often backed by the Federal Government and thus, are highly regulated. While this is just a comedy sketch, we wanted to highlight some of the REAL situations and what the banks are REALLY thinking when lending these mortgages to you, the consumer. Don’t fall for these traps by playing their game! Learn the rules and how banking works! 📉 Learn How to Pay Off Your Mortgage in 5-7 Years (On Average): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3f-ebCjeH8o
