It's no secret that housing has been through a tough period. The turbulent economy of the past few years has led to some fundamental misconceptions about how real estate works as an investment, along with a loss of confidence in the value of home ownership.

Avoid those who are swimming in the swamp of negativity and spend your time with those who are (1 comments)

Fannie Mae says it will begin fining loan servicers who take too long to complete foreclosures once it's been determined that delinquent borrowers don't qualify for a loan modification or other alternatives like short sales.The fines -- or "compensatory fees" -- will be assessed when loan servicers can't provide a reasonable explanation for failing to meet timelines for completing routine foreclosures that vary from state to state, Fannie Mae said in a bulletin to servicers.The time allotted to complete a foreclosure, starting from the referral of a loan file to an attorney or trustee until the date of a foreclosure sale, (5 comments)

Howard Theater Redevelopment Team Ready To Break Ground Posted by Brooks Butler Hays on 9/01/2010 01:42:00 PM Labels: Ellis Development, Martinez and Johnson, Shaw - 09/02/10 07:49 PM
