Why Did We Bail Them Out????

Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty Premier

I keep sending very qualified buyers to lenders only to find out that unless their credit score is over 750 they will wind up paying 2 to 4 points.  We bailed these people out to stimulate the economy.  THEY ARE NOT DOING MUCH STIMULATING!!  Many people have lost a great deal of their savings with the market dropping from 14,000 to 8,000 (by the way we bailed these people out too.) yet our lenders are demanding more upfront cash to buy a house.  Something seems out of wack here.

You mean you didn't get your bonus from the bailout? I agree that these banks basically stole this money from the American people and need to be put in jail! I've done more horror stories of short sales and loan modifications in the last 6 months than I had in the previous 3 previous years. Before this whole bailout thing, if a short sale or loan modification needed to be done, it could be done in less than a week, now they won't even consider it.
