bay area foreclosure loan: fannie mae to bring up the conforming limit ??? - 02/18/08 12:54 PM
Now what? Frankly, analysts feel that enactment is possible by mid-February but looks more likely by early March. No large investors will make any policy changes or announcements until the issues are less confusing, or even voted into law. Apparently, the bill would temporarily increase the limit on mortgages Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac may securitize from $417k to up to $730k. In addition, the bill would increase the limit on loans the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) may insure from $362k to $625k. This should help to reduce spreads in the jumbo mortgage market!

bay area foreclosure loan: did they raise the conforming limits or not? And mortgage rates continue to worsen - 02/18/08 12:53 PM

bay area foreclosure loan: Credit problem: expensive loan - 08/14/07 06:04 PM
Credit (borrowing) has become scarcer, rather than simply more expensive, which could affect the real economy
in at least three ways. It could make the already large overhang of unoccupied housing worse, curb consumer
spending, and constrain capital spending and hiring by firms that depend on external financing. And then what?
Will this housing problem infect other parts of the economy? The "wealth effect" that housing in the past has

game but that has been stripped for the most part. The number … (0 comments)
