How do you know what your loan officer is making on the back? It is disclosed, but you need to know what you are looking at. It’s called ‘yield spread premium’ or YSP. Be careful of this though. Just because you don’t see it does not mean it’s not there. When your loan officer is selling you a loan from his own company, he does not need to disclose the YSP. The YSP is what the ‘broker’ charges over what the lender offers. If dealing direct with the lender there is no YSP. Even if the loan officer can get you that 6.5% and sells you the 7% instead, because he woks for the lender there is no YSP. Ask if he is a broker or direct lender. As with almost anything either can be sold well.

It was early March 2000 and I received a call from Kevin. He said that he had heard about me from some mutual friends. He wanted to speculate in buying HUD houses (Properties that the Government had foreclosed on). He wanted to buy them, fix them up and then sell them at a profit. He had heard that I had bought many foreclosures in the 1970’s and 80’s and he was hoping I could advise him. We met for lunch and he told me his life story. The important part of this conversation is that he had bought a boarded up 14 unit apartment building in downtown San Bernardino, across the street, recover from recession one of the roughest high schools in California.
CTEC approved provider Tyler: Thanks, Erlend. You certainly know about life insurance. How about real estate? We hear so much today about the importance of investing in it. How important do you think real estate is to gaining wealth and financial independence, and what would you say is the next best thing to do for people who are not interested in buying and selling properties?
Withdrawals from the TFSA are not taxable and the account holder can withdraw funds at any time. Flexible contribution rules make deposits and withdrawals easy. People may choose to open accounts with spousal contributions to save for their children’s expenditures. The graph below shows how a couple can contribute $5000 or less to the TFSA each year. Please note that since the couple was not able to contribute 5000$ in year 4 the rollover balance of contribution of 1500$ can be contributed in the following years. Hence in the following year the couple contributes 6500$ in all.
