FHA Loans (Just for fun) - 01/29/10 12:48 AM
I could not resist reposting this from Joey Tamer's Blog! A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client who lost his house in Hurricane Katrina and wanted to rebuild. He was told the loan would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to the parcel of property being offered as collateral.

(Actual letter): “Upon review of your letter adjoining your client’s loan application, we note that the (1 comments)

U.S. Government Gives a Blank Check to Home Buyers - 01/05/10 01:01 PM
President Obama’s administration made several changes to housing policy over the holidays that will really help current homeowners as well as buyers and sellers for years to come. The action by the treasury will bring more stability to Hawaii’s real estate market, which is one of the most stable markets in the nation. Their actions will bring more economic confidence to buyers and this combined with low interest rates and lower home prices make it easier to buy homes in Hawaii. There are still programs available to buyers that will give 100% financing eliminating the need for large down payments. Fannie (0 comments)
