GreatÂ forum! Thanks. Here is some news that might uplift those home buyers out there in the high pricedÂ California real estate market.Â The United States Senate voted today to approve a multi-billion-dollar economic stimulus bill which includes a CBIA-supported increase in the federal conforming loan limit. The loan limit increase means that federally guaranteed loans, which carry lower financing costs for homebuyers, will rise to $730,000 in California’s high-cost housing markets providing needed mortgage capital and, hopefully, much-needed stimulus to dormant home sales. The stimulus package, approved by a vote of 81 to 16, must go back to the House of Representatives for a vote - expected to be a formality - before its expected arrival on the President’s desk next week. More on this important development in next week’s Monday Morning Report. Thanks to all CBIA members who weighed in on the bill over the past several weeks.So what does this mean to the average home buyer? Lower interest rates on those high priced homes in California and other markets!
