New Refinancing Program - The 15 Year Loan Solution - 10/29/11 02:41 PM
The New Refinancing Program just announced by the Obama administration is may be more than a temporary fix. In my previous post I laid out how the new refinance program for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac backed loans, can bring the monthly payment down to a level of a rent payment and lower. This program will be avialable to homeowners with a Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac backed loans no matter how far the value of the home is below the mortgage amount. This will entice many homeowners to stay put for a couple of years and not let their house (2 comments)
New Refinance Program May Turn Market Around - 10/28/11 07:48 PM

So far we only know that the home-owner needs to be current with his payments. I feel for the ones (2 comments)

HUD owned homes are not better or worse than other homes. However, in a short sale the seller has an interest to keep the property in good condition, same is true for traditional sales transactions. With HUD (2 comments)

Multiple offer situations lead to price increases in recent months. In September, the largest increase from list price to sales price happened on a home in the Acacia Crossings subdivision.
