ventura county certified short sale specialist: Unintended Consequences #ChrisBJohnsonRealtor - 07/13/15 03:23 AM
 "Dodd-Frank Five Years Later: Are We More  Stable?"  The focus of Thursday's hearing was on how the  400 new regulations enacted in the 2,300-page law is a  threat to the country's financial stability.
 "What is undebatable is the fact that since the passage of  Dodd-Frank the big banks are now bigger; the small banks  are now fewer," Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) said in his opening statement at the hearing.

  By Chris B Johnson Realtor,
While the housing market tends to do especially well when the job market improves and mortgage rates decline simultaneously, that combination of events occurs only rarely…People buy homes when their job and income prospects improve – even if it’s more expensive to do so – rather than buy when it is inexpensive to do so but they’re worried about keeping their jobs.
