Let me be Frank and Help You Dodge a Bullet

Real Estate Broker/Owner with IL Real Estate Specialists

These Happy go Lucky characters are Dodd/ Frank


Let me be Frank and Help You Dodge a Bullet. The next thing to be repealed by Donald Trump is Dodd/Frank.

For those of you who do not know Dodd/Frank is a 2,300 page document that was inacted into law when we had the financial crisis. The Dodd/Frank Bill was a reaction to the melt down in the financial markets and the housing market.

If Dodd/Frank is repealed by Donald Trump in an Executive Action then I suspect the following will happen:

  • Banks will come up with new mortgage products and qualify more buyers for loans
  • More buyers will pay more for a mortgage because interest rates will be higher
  • Banks will make more Money
  • Home Prices will be Higher
  • More people will start to find it difficult to make their monthly mortgage payments
  • More Banks Foreclosures 

Let me be Frank and Help You Dodge a Bullet!

  • If you are a First Time Home Buyer please make sure you have a good job, good credit, good downpayment and plan to stay in your new home for at least 15 years.
  • Make sure your mortgage does not exceed 28% of your Gross Monthly Income
  • Make sure your Debt to Income Ration does not exceed 36% of your Gross Montly Income

Good afternoon Jack,

From what I have read it will be revamped with some of the dead wood being removed and supposedly made better.

Make yourself an astonishing day.
