Ever since it became public knowledge that Fannie Mae was in financial trouble, the agency has implimented "Loan Level Price Adjustments", which are basically add-ons to the rates, based on credit score, LTV ratio, CLTV ratio, loan purpose and also property type.  On December 29, 2008, Fannie Mae...
