Regarding potential house purchace in other thread --
may I just say here, or perhaps scream quietly ---- I really HATE paperwork! I hate searching all my files for documentation of every financial transaction I have made, or have thought about making, for the last 6 months, copying checks, deposit statments, scanning, faxing, filling out forms, having paper pushers not communicate with each other about what they have & what they need. I actually appreciate the "due diligence" on the part of the lender -- but if they'd been doing this all along a few years ago, the housing market wouldn't have crashed due to people being encouraged to lie on their loan apps so they could borrow more money than they could pay back. Of course, who remembers the last time one could get a home loan for 3.75 %? weird. Now if only our home we still own out of state were worth at least what we paid for the stupid thing, we could sell it & be out from under. Anyone want to buy a home in CA? You, too could have a truck load of paperwork!
