Check out these video tributes to Margaret Thatcher they are all wonderful, sometimes funny sometimes touching tributes to a Great Lady.
I was able to buy my first home sooner if at all, due to just one of her policies to remove parliament away from being landlords and running business. British Telecom, British Rail and many other industries were the most poorly managed and all benefited from the big sell off, although I am sure that some of the over paid under worked employees would not agree. I wonder how her opposition to wanting to join the European community feel now?
R.I.P Margaret you were in my opinion the greatest leader Britain has ever had, or probably will ever have.
Thank you to The telegraph for this article.
In fact, more than half of those borrowing to finance their vehicles are already opting for 72-month amortizations or longer, representing a nearly 40-percentage point jump from just five years ago, reads a report from JD Power and Associates.
“Consumers today just don’t think of the car as being $28,500,” said JD Ney, with JD Power. “They think of it as being $500 a month. There’s a certain pain threshold – whatever it takes, we’ll try and keep that monthly payment.”
Playing with amortization on car loans is one way mortgage brokers have advised clients looking to prepare for a mortgage application.
Still, most mortgage professionals have counselled borrowers to opt for less expensive auto purchases as a better of preparing to meet debt-service requirements and win home loan financing.
That advice may be increasingly hard to follow, with brokers pointing to mortgage rule changes that have only strained the ability of many borrowers to qualify.
That is a huge increase from just five years ago, when 14 per cent of buyers borrowed for six years or more, said J.D. Ney, an automotive account analyst in the consulting firm’s Canadian office.
