HARP 2.0 guidelines have been defined. We'll see if the banks include as many "overlays" as they did for version 1. Let's hope not. All told, this program should allow many more people to refinance.

Good morning, I hope it's been a good week for everyone. It certainly has been in interesting one in world economics. Stocks have been all across the board, mostly with gains though, and the bond markets are holding steady. The news out of Europe is unsettling to investors, and with no conclusion...

The Senate is now probing the GSE's (Fannie and Freddie) on the bonuses given to the executives at these agencies. It's been reported that 10 executives are scheduled to receive more than $12 million in combined bonuses. I read this about an hour ago and I'm still laughing... One of the biggest r...

The Federal Open Market Committee announced today that they will keep the fed funds rate near zero. They also speculated that the economy will see modest growth in the next few quarters.
