Renting & Real Estate's questions - Malay iziqna

I have a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. In addition to making my monthly mortgage payments, if I pay towards my principal, will I save on interest? If yes, does that mean once the principal amount has been paid off, there is no more interest?

You already have turned away other possible tenants, but they do seem troublesome right from the beginning. What is the best and fair way, for the landlord to handle this situation? Advice needed. Thanks.

I have about 8,000 in savings. I make around 1600 a month. I get other jobs here and there other than my full time job, but they all vary monthly.

I am getting a job transfer to San Francisco & I'm looking at real estate ads to buy a house. I saw on one ad where it's stated there's a protected tenant & the rent currently received. I've never seen anything like this before! What does this mean? Does this mean if I purchased this house... show more

I received a letter from one of my tenants who has been renting from me now for five years. He said in the letter his wife's mother was in the kitchen & saw a man staring at her through the window. Their kitchen is in the back side of the house behind a gate with an archway over it. Plus there is a 6 ft.... show more
