Happy Valentines Day!
Home prices fell in a record number 77 U.S. metro areas in the fourth quarter according to the NAR. On a better note, President Bush signed the stimulus package which will send checks to American consumers starting in May...your check may vary in size. One thing that will interest your Jumbo Loan customers, currently at a $417,000 limit loan size, is a provision that will raise the Jumbo Loan limit to $729,750. I am waiting on more information on this and will pass it on to you. This is great news for larger home buyers as the Jumbo Rates have been really high for months now.
Although the Fed cut short term interest rates 1.25% in the last few weeks, the lending institutions are still tightening the lending practices. Many programs available 6-9 months ago no longer exist and having a Lending Partner able to help you help your buyers and sellers is becoming more and more important. Call me and let's talk about how I can help you be more successful.
Thanks and enjoy the warmth...a winter storm cometh...(and it is bringing some wet stuff for the weekend!)
Enjoy the day!
