What's going on with the stimulus package? Sadly, NW Indiana may get exactly zero assistance from this mortgage package since we are aligned with Gary in statistical methods. Berni Germani reports:
...I had the distinct opportunity to be at a meeting with a couple of
representatives from Fannie Mae. According to these representatives HUD has 30
days from the day the President signed the package into law to identify the
impacted Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA's). In other words HUD will
determine new loan limits based on median area sales prices. So this will delay
the loan limit changes until probably March or April.
It's hard to say when exactly the change will happen since we are all
waiting on HUD and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac to update guidelines. Hang in there
