Welcome to my blog about mortgages and real estate loans in Oregon, California, Alaska and Washington. I am a government specialist and am a Vietnam era veteran. I enjoy working first time home buyers and have many tools available to help them.
All of us on Active Rain want the Real Estate market to turn around. We want to see homes selling. We want people to be taking out mortgages. But, we also want to have our clients well served by what we do and in this, I want to suggest Cash Flow as a method of determining suitability. By this, I...
One of the biggest things stopping people from participating in the American Dream today is the ability to come up with the down payment. While talk of a credit crunch keeps some buyers sidelined because of credit problems, many others with good credit are able to get the best deals in years incl...

HUD has announced the new FHA loan limits for 2009 and they are lower than I expected for Lane County. The new loan limit is $271,050 versus the current "temporary" loan limit of $343,750, a reduction of over $70k. There are a few Oregon counties that have higher loan limits, but the majority of ...
The following is a news release from the Federal Housing Finance Agency regarding loan limits for conforming loans across the United States. High cost states will continue to be above the maximum but, at least for now, the maximum conforming loan for most of the country will stay at $417,000. Hi...
I just have a few random thoughts this morning about what is happening right now in our economy. First of all, the election is over and win or lose for your candidate, get over it!
