Any advice on USDA rural housing loans?

Looking to buy a house in rural areas between Tampa and Sarasota. First-time homebuyer, attracted to the USDA loan program for its guarantees and all-encompassing mortgage which includes insurance, closing costs and possibly even repairs. I want to hear the good and bad from folks who have recent experience from the program, what to look for in a lender or mortgage broker. If you have any recs for the area I'm talking about, all the better. Thanks.

How do I help someone Overseas build credit in the US?

How do I build someone's credit while they are overseas and not a US citizen? I am getting married to someone who is Japanese (in about 5 months) and lives in Japan right now. Because I know we will one day want to buy a house, I want to start building her credit as soon as possible because I know that it is easier to get a loan with two people signing instead of one.

How can I buy my own defaulted loan at a low price?

Back when the bank sold my Line-Of-Credit to a collection agency it was 16K, now the collection agency says it's 27K which I know is phony interest-rate bullshit. It's been five years. How can I buy it back for much less than 16K, say, 8K? [more inside]

Home sale pending, savings depleted, need cash for rent and deposit

The good news is that a full-price offer was made (and accepted) on our house within two days of it being on the market. The bad news is that we used almost all our savings (and some credit cards) fixing it up and now we need to find something to rent in 6-8 weeks, which will be difficult without enough available money for the initial rent and deposit.

Any experiences consolidating student loans with SOFI?

I just found out about SOFI, a company/ service that will let you consolidate your student loans - they solicit other alumni to lend. I am not interested in consolidating my federal loans (want that federal guarantee / public service forgiveness option) but I have two companies now servicing my private loans and think this could be a good option for me.

How much is too much Grad student loan debt? Boston vs UIC Public Health

So I have a question. I am a MPH student and I have found my ideal school. It has awesome faculty who seem really passionate about their work and are focused on helping students succeed. The career services department is also very strong. I want to attend this school because I feel like the professors care, and that they will help me get a really great job after graduation and that career services will also help me leverage my new skill set into a good paying job. I cannot express how great everyone at the school has been to me thus far. I have felt not only welcomed, but that they really want me to attend the school and program. The problem is that this is a private school and VERY expensive. [more inside]

Can I be responsible for my parent's debt?

My dad is horrible with money. He has lots of debt and for some reason, banks continue to give him loans. He never makes payments and he's always in the red. I've tried my best to keep him from getting credit cards and taking out loans but he's an adult and if the banks keep doing it, there's nothing I can do to stop them. My mother says that I'm going to be responsible for his debt but I have never co-signed anything with him or gone to the banks with him. Is it possible for me to still be responsible? Are there any steps I can take to make sure I won't be responsible? [more inside]

How can I make a loan to a friend work?

I'd like to loan someone some money (a few thousand dollars). A friend needs it to finish school, and they don't have any good, low-interest options. I don't mind losing the money and forgiving the loan if they fall into hardship, but it would be a financial blow that I want to avoid; making it a straight up gift from the getgo is not appealing. Is it possible to have a bank or credit union draw up the loan and service it for a flat fee? Any other ways to make the whole thing impersonal, legal, and low-hassle for me, while keeping it forgiveable at my discretion without impacting my friend's credit? [more inside]

Is anyone else frightened at the apparent ineptitude, lack of transparency and otherwise confusing Direct Loan repayment system in the US?

My loans have been transferred and split at least twice, usually without notifying me. There used to be a fairly easy to navigate website, but now that they are shared between myedaccount and edfinancial, or not. They are unable to give me clear answers. And now it's impossible to even find my full payment history online. I'm not sure if I'm looking for advice or to be held. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Should I just pay off my student loan?

Should I just pay off my student loan? I owe $4800 for federal subsidized/unsubsidized loans. I have a three month grace period and already paid off $700. The thing is, I have $6000 in my bank, and if I pay off my loans, I'll have about $1000 (enough to keep my bank from charging me minimum balance fee) and also qualify for food stamps. The food stamp would really help because I have physical illnesses that keep me on a strict diet, and I don't see myself going desperate only with a $1000 now that I have a job that fully pays my rent. I don't really need $6000 for anything. It pretty much just sits there. [more inside]
