3X your annual household income is the MAX house you can afford. Do not go beyond that amount.
That's a good rule of thumb, but hardly a certainty.
I agree. But, if a person "earns" their payment through "wages", and has a desire to pay-off the home at some point, then I kinda think it is a rule. If the buyer has a short term selling idea, or has no plan to ever stay put, or does not plan to own, or is willing to gamble, or sees a benefit worth the difference (good area, view, schools, ect), then that 3:1 ratio can move around. But, I submit it should be slid down when the same variables are negatives. In an area like the 209, a middle-class subdivision home is only worth 2X the middle-class HHI, in my opinion. Real numbers in 209 would be something like 45K HHI X 2 for a 90K home. The trouble is, Section 8 hands out $1,000 a month to rent these mid-level houses that can be bought for 1/2 that amount in payments, so most middle-class subdivisions in the 209 are becoming gang slums. This is forcing the regular people that do not want to live in tijuana to sell to the investors and then to pay more-than-value to get into areas that are not infested - yet.
The way is looks to me is, the REMafia has parlayed their position by gathering up lots of SFH's, having taxpayers pay the note through Section8, and then drive the productive middle-class out of the middle-class subdivisions, and into higher-cost areas, by infesting the area with scum. Graffitti, gangs, drugs, violence, loud music at all hours, little dogs running through the streets, cars parked on the front yard ..... all coming to a subdivision near you if Section8 is not removed from the SFH market.
p.s. Section 8 allows people to BUY also.
In the meanwhile, stupid people are rewarded with laon modifications. That is absurd. That is welfare for stupid people. Once again, anyone not stupid enough to go into debt at 10:1 HHI, and then HELOC every penney they can from the asset, and then make zero payments for 5 years, and then get a loan modification -- is the one paying the way for those who were that stupid.
Back on topic: 3:1 is a good rule for anyone coming on Patrick.Net for good advice. If you are wealthy enough to go beyond that ratio, you can just use the tried and true system of telling your REMafia member, "I can afford this much $___ per month", and out of the goodness of their heart they will find a home that takes (just a little bit more than) that amount for you to own.
Fucktard, gangbangers kill each other due to the ILLEGAL TRADE and PROFIT in
drugs. Not because they smoked a joint.
the drug abuse could be behind the willingness to join a gang. Or, perhaps, the same lack of mental tuffness or self control or self workth that leads one to a gang life may also be what leads one to try any drug, and become a slave to any drug.
deviant liberals rely on armed Americans that follow laws to protect them, but demand an end to armed Americans that follow laws. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Here's the question that will help organize your thoughts. Is jelly-spined
programmatic progressivist pseudo-socialism really what produced the current
endless meltdown? I suggest really rock-ribbed conservatives and stalwart
lefties are mostly in agreement on the basics but the only barrier is the
overwhelming influence of campaign money from the financial crimes industry
which has been directly influencing regulation - or its roll-back - since the
1970s or so.
IF ... if welfare is cut .... if Section 8 is no longer allowed in the SFH rental market .... if EBT removes the cash function .... if there is ever a closed border .... if Obamacare, or some Rupub version of Republicare-Obamacare-lite is forced upon the public ... if a real nasty war starts, with real high numbers American deaths ... if solar flares take out the grid ... if the Mayans date was miscounted by us by a year .... if just the right amount of bad things happen, THEN cali-housing will no longer be the playground for the specuvestors that make up the REmob responsible for funding the REnazi-lobby that keeps the poopoo flowing. As of today, in central cal, there are still "programs" being used to create buyers, resulting in prices being higher than a true market would support. End those progams, and prices keep going down. I think.
OK Bap. What are the main differences between you (a CONSERVATIVE) and the Republican platform? And when was the last time you voted for a candidate that didn't have an R after his name?
I voted for Ross Perot and I would have voted for Ron Paul but he was GOPed out. I want the right person doing the right job. Obama is a joke that has went so much better than the leftists ever imagined that they are having trouble coming up with a "next thing" to use to remove your freedoms.
The FACT is the central valley of mexifornia votes EXTREEMLY conservative, but we get blasted by the liberals near the water on almost every issue. Just check the voting record of the valley counties between Bakersfield and Stockton. Conservatism alive and well.
And when we do win at the ballot box the liberals use the courts to get their way, and silence the conservative voice. In my voting life it has went on almost non-stop. Liberals suck.
compulsery education at the public expense should be haulted, and privatized schooling should be all that exists. As a result of education being a choice and not forced, all voting rights should be earned with passage of a basic IQ test in math, economics, and history, along with a clean drug test.
The failed progressive liberal wealth transfer system will put man back 3000 years. Too bad we dont keep our history on stone tablets so the humans of the furture will know what to do when liberalism shows up again.
The reason I don't agree with that assessment is because it really wouldn't
matter whether this was a liberal or a conservative-backed program: no matter
what it is, there will ALWAYS be people who abuse whatever system happens to be.
That's human nature.
Good point. Now, please name some conservative designed and built GOV MANDATED wealth transfer "programs", like any of the different shades of welfare -- from cash to breeding illegal teen moms, to Section 8, to CalFHA, to free school lunch, to Farm Aide, to you name it .... just list some examples of a CONSERVATIVE (not some Rino progressive liberal) that started such a "program". I figure there must be something, I just cant think of one. But, good point.
I did read on here, and on the net, and in the paper, and saw on Fox, that CONSERVATIVES give more to PRIVATE public help "programs" than self-profressed non-conservatives do. Ever heard that?
racist?? I never mentioned any race in my post, so that makes no sense. ?
I only suggest nude flogging over prison or jail because it is much cheaper and sounds like it would be a better deterrent. Those ideas were off the cuff, not pondered.
If the CalEPA and the green freaks really wanted cleaner air, then they would have demanded a closed border and supported Prop 187 in 1994. The invasion and hyper-breeding following the activist-court stoppage of the voter's voice has had a horrible impact on all things enviro related. Obviously the pro-invasion liberals want dirty air and dirty water.
once again the liberals use the activist courts to do stuff that the voters said no to. "First thing we must do is kill all the lawyers and judges",.... said someone one time with a similar problem.
If the punishment for being an invader driving without a license was instant death, and if the punishment for being an invader on drugs, or someone on drugs born to an invader, was a direct train ride to Tijuana, and if the punishment for (any human)driving drunk was nude public flogging, and if the punishment for (any human)selling drugs was public decapitation, and if the punishment for rape was public hanging, and if the punishment for gang activity was nude public flogging followed by a week in a glass box on public display followed by public nude hanging, and if the rotton political hack POS in Sacramento were charged with murder each and every time an invader commits murder or manslaughter, with a car or weapon or bare hands, then I just might not really care who they decree worthy of driving.
Progressive liberalism is a disgusting vial worm eating the soul of humanity.
Can we all read the Barclay opinion from 2001, and then 2004, and then 2007, and then 2010, and then 2013? I think that might be some cool graph data from one of you graph-data-masters. For me, if they were wrong 3/5 of the time, then their opinion should be weighted 3/5.
