Annuities are financial contracts made with an insurance company. Policy holders agree to contribute either a lump sum payment or series of payments in exchange for periodic payments to be returned immediately or at a later date. In essence, annuities are similar to a savings account. Funds are contributed, interest in accrued and annuity payouts are distributed according to terms outlined when the account is established.

One benefit of establishing annuities is they allow Annuitants to obtain tax-deferred growth of earnings. Most annuity agreements allow Annuitants to establish beneficiaries to receive future payments if the Annuitant dies before the policy expires. Annuities can also be established to pay only the Annuitant or divide funds amongst dependents.

Short Sale Real Estate Investor

Short sale real estate is property that has been sold for a lesser amount than the balance due on a mortgage note. This type of real estate transaction occurs when a homeowner is no longer able to fulfill their mortgage obligation and defaults on their loan. In order to stop foreclosure, the lender can elect to allow the homeowner to sell the home for less than is owed on the loan.

Typically, lenders only engage in short sale real estate when the current market value is less than the loan on the property. Short sales are only available to homeowners who have no equity in their home and owe more than the property is worth.

California Probate Attorney

A California probate attorney is generally required to handle estates of residents who have died. Probate is the legal process used to establish a value of the decedent's estate. It is also used to validate the decedent's Will or appoint an estate administrator if the decedent died intestate (without a Will).

Individuals can hire a California probate attorney to help establish estate planning or to assist them in settling an estate entered into probate. Many people procrastinate about estate planning; particularly when they are young and in good health. However, this is a huge mistake that could cause their family tremendous hardship.
