The next couple of days will certainly be interesting for the housing market. Today, Congress will be voting on the housing bill.  There is a lot of talk about the housing bill, but one part of it that does not get a lot of discussion is the potential for the $8,000 tax credit for new home purcha...

I remeber several years ago when I received a call from a local Countrywide mortage person who said "Chris, we have a 100 percent financing program for investor programs."  At the time, I thought that to be interesting but at the same time I asked myself "how can that be ? "  And even asked the s...

I woke up this morning with a smile - it is a special day - a day of reflection and a day of gratitude. On this day I met my wife Stephanie and also on this day, a year from when I met her, I proposed to her. She has changed my life in so many ways it is amazing.  I could go on and on about that ...
