What are Debt-to-Income Ratios?  Well, they are important if you are trying to buy a house, and you might need some "common sense" mortgage underwriting.  FHA Home Loans generally have the most "common sense" approach to mortgage underwriting available right now, and generally that's the program we use if someone is "tight" on their ratio.   #FHALoansRaleighNC  
In January of 2014 there's a proposed change by the Consumer Protection Finance Bureau (CFPB) that will make it very difficult to originate loans if the to

FHA may be the mortgage of choice for First Time Home Buyers going forward, due to minimum credit score requirements from USDA Loans now.  #FHALoans
The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) saw its share of the mortgage market soar to 72 percent of all mortgages issued in 2008 as other lenders pulled back and FHA moved into one of the two roles it was designed to fill, as a counterforce providing access...

I just got off the phone with a guy who was trying to compare his rent to the payment of owning a home.  You can't t do that.  Yes, there are other costs associated with owning a home - like maintenance - but there are also TAX ADVANTAGES   #MortgageTaxCredits  
We talked to a buyer recently who was trying to compare currently rental payments to a house payment.  As the conversation progressed we realized that this

HT: +AJ Kohn Great info from Yahoo Labs that I missed. #SEO  
 
Focused Crawling for Structured Data

We propose new methods of focused crawling specifically designed for collecting data-rich pages with greater efficiency. In particular, we propose a novel combination of online learning and bandit-based explore/exploit approaches to predict data-rich web pages based on the context of the page as well as using feedback from the extraction of metadata from previously seen pages. We show that these techniques significantly outperform state-of-the-art approaches for focused crawling, measured as the ratio of relevant pages and non-relevant pages collected within a given budget.

Interesting approach here by Yahoo to optimize crawl budget for those pages that are likely to be rich in structured data.

The Web is rapidly transforming from a pure document collection to the largest connected public data space. Semantic annotations of web pages make it notably easier to extract and reuse data and are increasingly used by both search engines and social media sites to provide better search ...

I do not recommend this Salon. We had a miserable experience with disastrous color treatment that even the owner said was, "too intense." After going back a second time, they suggested maybe adding "streaks" to fix it. Ended up paying another Aveda Salon for Color Correction. I would not go to this Salon for ANY color treatment.

Many mortgage companies are not offering USDA Home Loans. We still have USDA Rural Development loans available. 100% no money down loans at a fixed rate with no PMI. We also do FHA and VA mortgage loans. We offer refinances, streamline FHA and VA loans. First Time Home Buyer programs, and credit repair counseling. We help many people who have high to mid 500 credit scores raise those credit scores so that they can purchase a home. This normally takes about 60 to 90 days, and all fees for credit analysis, credit reports and rapid rescores are credited back to you at closing. If you have a bankruptcy or foreclosure in your past call us. We can help you take the steps toward purchasing another home!

It's so great to work with Web Design (and "execution") folks who understand Real Estate. Too often, I see agents and Brokerages working with a WebTeam that understand good web design, but they don't understand how that translates to Real Estate. These guys get it.
