The 1960 Ray Charles lyric — “Them that’s got are them that gets” — rings true today in the US mortgage market.

Lenders increased their origination of home equity lines of credit, or Helocs, by 21 percent in the 12 months ending in June, data firm RealtyTrac Inc. said today. The 797,865 Helocs given in the period represent the highest level since 2009.

Bank of America Corp. and other lenders are providing more Helocs, often to their existing customers at reduced rates, as rising prices gives them more equity in their homes. At the same time, banks have been cutting lending for home purchases after imposing stiff requirements on borrowers to comply...

While South Africa narrowly avoided a technical recession in the second quarter, a closer look at the gross domestic product (GDP) numbers showed these still pointed to a deterioration in the household sector during the quarter, FNB said yesterday.

Household and property sector analyst John Loos said the data provided little in the way of surprises for the sector.

GDP figures released by Statistics SA on Tuesday showed there was a dramatic slump in the retail and wholesale trade, catering and accommodation sector, influenced by the knock-on effect of the mining and manufacturing strikes. The sector contracted at an annualised pace of 0.2 percent quarter on quarter...

Criminals have made millions of dollars by physically installing malware on cash machines across the world, Interpol and security company Kaspersky have warned.

More than 50 Windows-based ATMs at banks in Eastern Europe are known to have been infected by the Tyupkin malware, which allowed the gang’s money mules to enter codes into a cash machine to withdraw funds.

It would have required significant planning, as the mules had to be at the infected cash machines at specified times on either Sunday or Monday nights. The machines were compromised after the criminals inserted a bootable CD before uploading their malicious kit.

The key required to access the malware was also...

SACRAMENTO (AP) – The city of Folsom has completed the first section of the Johnny Cash Trail that will pay tribute to the country music icon and his 1968 album At Folsom Prison.

City officials planned to unveil the first section of the 2.5-mile trail on Saturday – a pedestrian and bike bridge designed to echo Folsom State Prisons east gate guard towers, according to the Sacramento Bee.

The trail will traverse prison property and link to area trails.

The newspaper reports that the city is planning a $3 million fundraising drive to pay for a 2-acre park next to the bridge and art installations along the trail – including a 40-foot steel statue of Cash.


Does it make sense to tap into home’s value?

filed under Debt Consolidation

You may be tempted to consolidate your credit card and other high-interest debt into a mortgage with much lower payments. The offers are widespread. But is this a wise financial decision?


Todays debt consolidation mortgages are more conservative than those seen during the housing boom, when lenders allowed homeowners to refinance and cash out as much as 110 percent of the value of their homes. Lenders now require the homeowner to keep at least 15 to 20 percent equity after cashing out.


Those with enough equity in their homes have been able to substantially reduce the monthly payments on credit...

Why Debt Consolidation Can Leave You Deeper in Debt

filed under Debt Consolidation

When youre struggling with debt, combining all of your debts into one easy-to-pay loan sounds pretty good. The idea is that youll reduce the overall interest you pay, and be hit with fewer late fees since youll only have one payment to remember.

Theres just one problem.

Consolidating debt often masks the real problem
Most likely, the real problem isnt high interest rates or constantly having to manage making on-time payments to multiple debts. The real problem is usually something deeper. Typically, thats a combination of the way you view money and what you do (or dont do!) with the money...
