It is natural to feel a little nervous and confused when it is your first time to buying real estate. The whole process can be a bit overwhelming, which is why it is helpful to see it all a laid out in a simple list. A list can help walk you through the whole thing remembering what you’ve done and seeing what is up ahead so that you feel informed and secure.
Does this mean you might have to weed out the reality from the nonsense? Of course it does. You may get calls from people offering you motor homes and motorboats and other Real Estate Brokers. You just have to be up front with them. You need to let them know you are willing to take their house in on a trade. But you will have to be extremely careful. You will not be able to give one hundred percent of the value of the equity if you take the home on the trade. It is just not probable (or possible for that matter). Realistically, you will end up probably giving only half of their equity as credit.

Increase your borrowing power without liquidating investments by pledging eligible securities in your portfolio. Using securities as collateral makes sense, especially if you need to borrow more than a lender is willing to provide, or to avoid the selling of personal assets. Since there is no sale, there are no capital gains tax consequences.
