The bail out of the banking industry did not end with TARP.   Enactment of the S.A.F.E act along with the registration of independent brokers with the NMLS  (Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System) is going to have a major impact on the real estate business.   I am in 100% agreement with having a N...
This Capital Tax Code change caught me by surprise as I just learned about it.  I had not heard anything about it and perhaps other real estate professionals are in the same situation.  In the past I have had numerous clients that have used this section of the IRS code and several that are curren...
I had a borrower come to our office on Monday afternoon and drove 30 miles without an appointment.  They were emotionally devastated  looking for a loan and were referred to me from a past client.   The reason they were here is that they had applied to a bank who will not be directly named but so...

I presume most of us have heard that Wachovia has suspended their Pick-A-Pay Program.  Sort of like locking the barn door after the horse left the barn, corral, and the County. However, they also announced that they will no longer have early payment penalties and will waive the prepayment penalty...
Recently I originated a loan referred to me from a long term past client.  I reviewed their w-2 forms, recent pay check stubs and bank statements.  Then I pulled a three bureau credit report and then ran a FNMA DU approval to provide him and his agent a pre-qualification letter for the purpose of...
That the was headline of a published article I wrote in June of 2005 when the real estate market was surging with sales activity enabled by loan programs with ridiculous terms enhanced with the most liberal of underwriting consideration and little thought to the future consequences.
