    Should I Buy a Home for Cash?

    Question: I am 64 and my wife is 62. We both plant to retire in a few years and are expecting small monthly pensions to compliment our retirement savings. Should I buy a home for cash or continue to rent when we retire?

    – Richard, Fairmont, West Virginia

    How to Prove We Own Our Home?

    Question: My wife and I recently paid off our mortgage and are now debt-free. Will we get any proof that we are the owners of our home?

    – Timothy Aussem, Ottawa, Ill.

    Can I Refinance My Private Mortgage?

    Question: I have kept up with my mortgage payments for a year now following a modification.  My payment has been cut by a few hundred dollars and the remaining monthly balance is added to the principal balance. Will I be able to refinance under HARP even though my mortgage is not backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac?

  • Nov 6, 2011
    10:50 PM ET

    Should I Do a Cash-In Refinance?

    Question: I recently looked at mortgage refinancing and found that I can save several hundred dollars per month with a fairly straightforward refi.  However, I currently have between 10-15% equity in the home and could potentially save another $100-200 per month by adding $15,000 in cash to cut the rate and trim the mortgage insurance.  Is it worth giving up this liquidity for a lower payment?

    Matt

    N.J.

    Should I Borrow Against My House to Buy Stocks?

    Question: I do not carry any mortgages on two homes. I am in one of the higher tax brackets and have sufficient cash to protect my current lifestyle. With home mortgage interest rates as low as they are, should I take out a 15 year mortgage (at 3.3%) or 30 year mortgage (at 4.1%) — both with $350 closing costs and fees — and then invest those funds in very conservative investments to generate income to cover or exceed those rates?

    – Mike Maier, Cincinnati, OH

  • Jul 11, 2011
    2:09 PM ET

    Should I Pay Off My Mortgage?

    Question: I am tempted to pay the $300,000 balance on my mortgage and live debt-free. How do I estimate the tax benefit of the interest paid on the mortgage?

    – Gaurav Aggarwal, Andover, Mass.
