As you look ahead to retirement, you face a number of decisions for your changing financial future. This includes deciding whether to move to a new city for your retirement years, changing your lifestyle to live on your retirement income and potentially pre-paying your mortgage.

Some retirees may have already paid off their mortgage years ago, but others have continued with this monthly expense. There are benefits to pre-paying mortgages and here are a few reasons why this is worth exploring.

An individual decision

First, the decision to pre-pay your mortgage is an individual decision with numerous factors affecting this.

Jeff Warnkin, a financial adviser at, JL Smith Group in Avon, Ohio, says even though there’s no right answer for a retiree, he prefers his clients to pay off their mortgage.

Why? He said, Im in favor of paying off the mortgage, as long as it doesnt come at the expense of funding your 401(k), Roth IRA and things of that nature.

Still, he added, it’s not only an individual decision but also one that should be from a bigger plan. Warnkin said, Ideally, Id like to see the last payment coincide with the date you retire. A fair number, 50 percent of our retirees, achieve that. But, as life unfolds, sometimes people have to take a home equity line, or help a child with a down payment on a house, medical issues, and sometimes they arrive at or near retirement with a mortgage.

For some retirees, paying off their mortgage just prior to entering retirement may be the best option for them.

Emily Sanders, managing director at United Capital in Atlanta, said, In general, if client has the liquidity to pay off the mortgage a lump sum from their job, retirement funds that are available but not heavily taxed we would encourage them that to pay off a mortgage to enter retirement as close to debt free as possible.

Realize a good return 

Similar to paying off any debt, by cutting down your mortgage payment, you’ll receive a guaranteed return. On the high end, the return will be your mortgage’s rate (if you don’t itemize your mortgage and dont deduct mortgage interest on your tax return), such as 5 percent to 7 percent.

On the other hand, if you deduct mortgage interest, then the rate of return will vary from the itemized deductions exceeding the standard deduction. The amount of interest you pay will decline every year because the principal portion of mortgage payments increases each year.

Enjoy tax savings

Along with receiving a return, you’ll also undergo fewer expenses in retirement. This means less income will be needed. And this will also bring fewer taxes thanks to US taxation system as well as fewer taxes on your Social Security benefits.

In essence, you’re cutting your retirement expenses in many different ways.

Review opportunity costs

While the aforementioned reasons all sound promising as you consider whether to pre pay your mortgage, one cost you can’t ignore is opportunity costs.

How will this affect your savings?

Let’s say that instead of paying off your mortgage, you made an investment that would return more than your mortgage rate. As for your retirement account, by adding to it, it offers tax advantages that would go away if that money went to your mortgage.

Regardless, the end goal for most retirees is live financially independent. And when you’re paying off debt, this ideal doesn’t happen. In fact, according to Securian Financial Group, just 29 percent of retirees are debt-free.

With a mortgage, the lower the interest rate, the easier it is to manage debt. And because many mortgage rates are low, you make take your time paying it off; however, if you’d like to enjoy your retirement years, after you’ve spent some money from your retirement accounts, then paying off the mortgage could be a good strategy.

This could also cause you to review this decision not only as a financial one but an emotion one.

John Gajkowski, co-founder of Money Managers Financial Group in Chicago, said when he discusses paying off the mortgage with clients, he addresses this combined decision. He said of his clients, Some people, even though they can afford to pay a mortgage, emotionally they want to get out from underneath it. They want to be free and clear. We have to figure out what is more important, emotional or financial.

Pre-paying your mortgage is an important decision and a personal one. Ask yourself some of the aforementioned questions. If you still have financial concerns, meet with a financial professional who can help answer your questions and move you toward a retirement that doesn’t include paying a mortgage.

Kabbage Inc., a startup that uses
cash advances to help online merchants buy inventory, added $75
million in debt financing to expand its customer base.

The debt facility was led by Victory Park Capital, a
Chicago firm whose other investments include the Giordano’s
pizza chain and Fuller Brush Co., Kabbage said today in a
statement. Existing equity investor Thomvest Ventures Inc. also

Kabbage, named after a slang term for money, targets
merchants using websites such as EBay Inc. (EBAY) and Inc. (AMZN)
as well as other sellers that are rejected or overlooked by
traditional lenders such as banks because of their lack of
collateral or lower credit scores. The Atlanta-based company
will use the debt financing to make more advances to new and
existing customers, Marc Gorlin, chairman and co-founder of
Kabbage, said in a phone interview.

Victory Park Principal Tom Affolter said his firm has
followed Kabbage since its inception. “There is a clear void in
the market as traditional financing sources remain reluctant to
lend,” he said.

Kabbage previously raised $56 million in venture capital
over three rounds from investors including TPG Capital’s David
Bonderman, Stephens Inc.’s Warren Stephens, Mohr Davidow
Ventures, BlueRun Ventures and United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS)

Kabbage uses buyer feedback ratings, selling history,
turnover, accounting data, bank account information and other
metrics to approve unsecured cash advances online in a few

Automatic Deductions

Once it approves a request, Kabbage puts money in an online
merchant’s PayPal account, and repayments are automatically
deducted monthly. Traditional lenders can’t approve loans as
quickly and typically require collateral.

The average line outstanding is about $12,000, and Kabbage
is testing advances of $100,000 or greater, Gorlin said.
Customers come back to Kabbage an average of 10 times a year to
take additional cash to boost inventories or cover expansion
costs, he said.

Kabbage has more than 100,000 customers, and expects to be
cash flow positive sometime in 2014, said Gorlin. He sold his
previous company, VerticalOne, to S1 Corp., which is now part of
ACI Worldwide Inc. (ACIW)

Although Kabbage’s advance isn’t secured by collateral, the
company’s charge-off rate, which accounts for clients who don’t
pay back the money on time, is “well below” the industry
average of 8 percent, Gorlin said.

Kabbage has experimented with other non-traditional data
such as a merchant’s Facebook Inc. (FB) and Twitter Inc. feeds, and
it found that customers who link to their social media
information are 20 percent less likely to be delinquent than
those who don’t.

“They’re more engaged and on top of their business, and
their accounting, ordering, shipping,” Gorlin said. “If
they’re paying attention to that, odds are they’re paying
attention to everything else too.”

November 27, 2014 · Getting A Mortgage · Comments Off

If you have a vacation home or investment property with an older, expensive mortgage, consider a refinance so you can take advantage of historically low mortgage rates.

At a time when financial constraints have forced some borrowers to sell second properties, refinancing can help make the property more affordable.

You can borrow money at a very low rate, and that makes financial sense, says Gibran Nicholas, CEO of CMPS Institute, a national organization that certifies mortgage lenders and bankers in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

If youre able to lower your mortgage rate by 1 percentage point or more, it could save you thousands of dollars, says Michael Moskowitz, president of Equity Now, a mortgage lending company in New York City.

Refinancing a vacation home is not much more complicated than getting a loan on a primary residence. However, getting approved for any mortgage is much more involved than it was before the housing crisis, Moskowitz, says.

In order to qualify, youll likely have to provide tax returns, several bank statements and proof of income to show your ability to repay the loan, he says.

However, there are some key differences between getting a mortgage on a primary residence, and securing a loan on a vacation or investment home.

Higher rates for second-home refinances

For starters, homeowners likely will pay a higher interest rate on the refinance of a second home or investment property.

Nicholas says that with a vacation home — also known as a second home — interest rates are comparable to rates for a primary home, although you may have to pay one-eighth to one-quarter percent more.

Meanwhile, mortgage rates for investment properties usually run about 1 percentage point above owner-occupied residential mortgages, says Keith Gumbinger, vice president of

The amount can be more or less, depending upon whether fees are incorporated into the interest rate or not.

Fannie Maes Loan-Level Pricing Adjustment matrix adds an investment property surcharge that ranges from 1.75 percent of the loan amount for mortgages of no more than 60 percent of the property value, to 3.75 percent for 80 percent loans. That translates to a rate increase of 0.5 percent to more than 1 percent.

Home equity is essential to refinance a second property

You will need to have equity in your property to refinance it — plan on at least 20 percent, says Matt Hackett, mortgage risk manager at Equity Now. The home must appraise for an amount that is high enough to allow an acceptable loan-to-value ratio, he says.

Thats a different standard than for primary residences, where homeowners may be able to qualify for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) financing with more lenient equity requirements, Hackett says.

It is difficult to refinance a second home if you have less than 20 percent equity. Moskowitz says it is possible to find a mortgage lender that will allow as little as 10 percent equity, but you may end up paying extra for it.

For example, you will probably end up paying for private mortgage insurance — which can add nearly 1 percent to the payment — in order to get the loan approved.

The difference between a second home and an investment home

There are some arcane rules for what constitutes an investment home versus a second home.

Usually, this hinges upon whether or not you need the income the property generates to cover the required mortgage payment — in which case the property is likely to be deemed an investment home — or whether your income without that cash flow can support the mortgage.

Not all lenders will finance investment homes, or finance all kinds of investment homes.

For a lender to deem the property a second home — even if your income without the rent is sufficient — the home must be a reasonable distance away from your primary home. That is usually akin to about 50 miles or so. It can be closer if the home is in an obvious vacation spot, such as near a beach or skiing area.

If it is just a plain old home not all that far from where you live, the property is usually treated as an investment since you really have no compelling reason to stay there instead of your primary home.

Also, to be considered a second home, guidelines generally state that the borrower must occupy the property for some portion of the year. If the property and occupancy fail these tests, the property is treated as an investment.

Fannie Mae also lists additional requirements for your second home:

  • It must be a one-unit place, because duplexes, triplexes and fourplexes are generally rented out
  • It must be suitable for year-round occupancy
  • You must have exclusive control over the property — no management companies and no time-share arrangements

What is more expensive to finance?

It is considerably more expensive and difficult to finance an investment home than a vacation home.

This is because when you refinance an investment property, the propertys income is used to help you qualify for the mortgage. If something happens to that income, you may not be able to afford the loan payments.

Additionally, people may be considerably less attached to their rental across town than they are to their vacation house where the family celebrates July Fourth every year. As such, borrowers are statistically less likely to default on vacation homes.

Second homes and occupancy fraud

Many homeowners acquire an investment property by purchasing it first as a primary residence, then converting it to a rental when they buy a new home for personal use.

If you originally financed the property as a primary residence, the income from the property was not a consideration. But now, you will have to document the propertys cash flow with your tax returns.

If it hasnt been rented out long enough for you to have a Schedule E, mortgage underwriters will credit you with 75 percent of the rent. (You will have to provide signed rental agreements and proof that the rent has been paid.) Or, an appraiser may be asked to create a rental schedule showing what the property should rent for.

Since refinancing a vacation home is cheaper and easier than refinancing an investment property, some owners are tempted to wrongly portray an investment property as their vacation home, says Hackett.

But they shouldnt bother, he says, because the lender will review monthly bill statements and other records to check on the accuracy of the loan application.

From an underwriting standpoint, we spend a lot of our time figuring out if its truly a second home, he says.

If you own a second property, consider refinancing while mortgage rates are still low for the chance to save thousands.

This post has been revised on August 12th to reflect the following correction:

Estimates of total grant aid presented in this post double-counted certain components of grant aid. The chart and numbers in the text have been revised to reflect corrected estimates. Grant aid now offsets a smaller share of total tuition in each year. Of the remaining net tuition, loans compose a smaller proportion each year and out-of-pocket spending a larger share than originally estimated. However, the trends over time are qualitatively similar: while the lsquo;sticker price of tuition has increased substantially, net tuition has increased only slightly, yet students now borrow considerably more than in the past to pay for their share of tuition.

According to todays employment report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employers added 195,000 jobs in June and an average of 196,000 jobs per month over the last three months, a faster pace of job growth than had been expected. This recent pace of job gains is somewhat more robust than the average pace of 161,000 jobs recorded over the prior three years. The unemployment rate was unchanged at 7.6 percent in June. The broadest measure of employmentthe employment-to-population ratioedged up to 58.7 percent, slightly above its level a year ago. The employment-to-population ratio has remained roughly at this same level since late 2009.

As we have shown in previous Hamilton Project work, there is a sharp divide in employment rates and earnings for American workers by education level. In April 2013, the unemployment rate for individuals twenty-five and older without a high school diploma was over 11 percent, but below 4 percent for those with a college degree. Indeed, because of the vast differences in job opportunities between high school graduates and college graduates, the rate of return to college exceeds 15 percentfar higher than comparable returns on other assets. Although average net tuitionthe actual cost to students after grant aid, scholarships, and other financial aidhas increased somewhat over the last two decades, the volume of student loans has increased much more quickly, as has the default rate on loans. As such, many are rightfully concerned about their ability to afford a college education, despite the high return a degree can offer. There is also increasing discussion at the federal level over the rising burden of student loans on recent graduates. This concern is especially salient this week as the interest rate on new federally subsidized student loans doubled to 6.8 percent on July 1st.

In this months employment analysis, The Hamilton Project explores several possible explanations for what accounts for the sharp increase in the volume and default rate of student loans. We also continue to explore the nations jobs gap, or the number of jobs needed to return to pre-recession employment levels.

Rising Student Loan Debt

Over the past decade, the volume and frequency of student loans have increased significantly. Nearly one in five American households had outstanding student debt in 2010, as did 40 percent of households headed by a person younger than thirty-five. As shown in the graph below, the volume of student loans grew by 77 percent from 2002 to 2012. In this same period, the average loan debt per full-time student increased by nearly 60 percent, to over $5,500.

The graph also illustrates the increasing trajectory of delinquency rates for student loans. The amount of student loans that are ninety-plus days past due, shown above as a percentage of the national loan balance, has risen by 4 percentage points over the past decade from around 6 percent to over 10 percent. Similarly, the percent of student borrowers whose loans are more than ninety days delinquent increased from under 10percent in 2004 to about 18 percent in 2012.

Of course, delinquency rates are affected by labor-market conditions. When jobs are scarce, it is harder for many recent graduates to repay their student loans. For instance, in 2005 the unemployment rate for twenty-five to thirty-four-year-olds who attended some college but did not obtain a bachelors degree was 5.4 percent. The unemployment rate for this same group had increased to 10.1 percent by 2012. The unemployment rate rose from 2.6 percent in 2005 to 4.1 percent in 2012 for individuals in this age group with a bachelors degree or higher. Indeed, worsening labor-market conditions in the past decade are likely to have hindered students abilities to repay their student loans. That being said, higher unemployment rates are unlikely to be the only cause of rising delinquencies or of the increases in debt that had already begun before the onset of the Great Recession.

Why Is Student Debt Growing?

The increase in loans and defaults over such a short time is puzzling. One possible explanation for the growing number of student loans is that tuition has increased, but the data suggest otherwise. While the sticker price of attending college has increased over the past decade and continues to do so, net tuitionthe price that the average student actually pays after financial aidhas increased at a much lower rate. As we showed in earlier work, net in-state tuition and fees at public four-year colleges have only increased by an average of $1,420 since 2002, which is less than half of the increase in the published rate of $3,450. At private four-year colleges, published tuition has increased by an average of $6,090 since 2002, while net tuition has only increased by $230. Overall, average net tuition has therefore increased only 13 percent over the last ten yearsfar below the 77 percent increase in student debt. See the technical appendix for a description of the calculations behind this and other figures cited in this report.

Similarly, rising debt is not simply the result of higher student enrollment. The number of undergraduates (full-time and part-time) increased from approximately 14 million in 2002 to just over 18 million in 2011. Enrollment, while up, increased only 27 percent.

This means that neither college enrollment nor net college tuition has risen enough over the past decade to explain the rapid upsurge in student debt. Instead, this phenomenon seems to be driven by an increase in the share of student-loan borrowing used to finance each dollar of college tuition.

The graph below shows how undergraduate education was financed between 1990 and 2011, breaking down published tuition into aid (including federal, non-federal, and private grants; work study programs; and tax credits), federal and non-federal loans, and the remainder, which we call out-of-pocket costs. The graph shows that while the sticker price of tuition has increased steadily, the net costrepresented as the sum of the green and blue areashas been relatively flat.

By focusing on just the blue and green sections of the graph, it is possible to observe the trends occurring within net tuitionhow students and families finance the tuition they are responsible for covering. It is evident that an increasing percentage of average net tuition is being financed by loans, even though net tuition has not increased much in magnitude over recent decades. In 2000, the average student borrowed only 38 percent (or about $3,600) to finance their tuition, whereas over the past three years, these loans have grown to nearly 50 percent (or $5,500) of net tuition costs.

It is not clear what accounts for this dramatic increase in the share of college tuition that American families finance through borrowing, but there are a number of possibilities worth further study:

The Great Recession, which reduced family income and assets, may have left families with fewer resources available to pay directly for college and may have lead to greater reliance on student loans.

The sharp contraction in the availability of many other forms of credit during and after the financial crisisfrom personal loans to second mortgagesmade it more difficult to borrow from traditional sources and therefore may have encouraged families to rely more on student loans instead of other means of borrowing.

Student loans may have become relatively more available because of changes in the laws protecting creditors, which may have encouraged lenders to offer loans to a broader set of less creditworthy borrowers.

The increase in enrollment in for-profit colleges, whose students rely more on federal aid and student loans, may have shifted the composition of students toward groups more likely to take out student loans.

Changes in the composition of the student body more generally, such as an increase in enrollment of students from lower- or middle-income households may have increased the proportion of students taking out loans.

It is currently unclear how important a role each of these factors plays in explaining the recent increase in debt, or whether some other factors are the cause. The extent to which the upsurge in student loans is an urgent problem depends, in large part, on why students are borrowing more to finance college and the broader economic challenges behind this trend.

The June Jobs Gap

As of June, our nation faces a jobs gap of 9.7 million jobs. The chart below shows how the jobs gap has evolved since the start of the Great Recession in December 2007, and how long it will take to close under different assumptions of job growth. The solid line shows the net number of jobs lost since the Great Recession began. The broken lines track how long it will take to close the jobs gap under alternative assumptions about the rate of job creation going forward.

If the economy adds about 208,000 jobs per month, which was the average monthly rate for the best year of job creation in the 2000s, then it will take until April 2020 to close the jobs gap. Given a more optimistic rate of 321,000 jobs per month, which was the average monthly rate of the best year of job creation in the 1990s, the economy will reach pre-recession employment levels by January 2017.

There is growing concern around the rising student debt load and delinquency rates on student loans. The increasing debt burden represents a drag on recent graduates and also serves as a deterrent to would-be students who may question the trade-off between the debt burden and the payoff of a college degree. Addressing these challenges requires a better understanding of how students pay for college, both through the lens of how policies affect affordability and also how those policies promote educational attainment and skills.

To examine these and other related issues, The Hamilton Project is releasing a number of papers focusing on the role of education in social mobility and the importance of increasing access to higher education. A forum hosted by the Project last week featured a new proposal by Caroline Hoxby of Stanford University and Sarah Turner of the University of Virginia that outlines a strategy for identifying promising low-income, high-achieving students and providing them with customized information to help improve their college opportunities, and a new Hamilton Project paper that explores the role of higher education in social mobility. In September, The Hamilton Project will continue its focus on higher education with the release of two new policy proposals: one on how to improve the Pell program to increase access and affordability of college while also promoting college completion, and the other on how to reduce the debt burden on recent college graduates and reduce the likelihood of delinquency.
