Top 10 Things You Don't Want To Hear The Head of the Federal Reserve Say - October 26, 2008
We never thought we would miss Alan Greenspan, even if you disagreed with his policies at least he knew how to use words carefully, until recently.Mortgages Made Simple logo After listening to the economic speak of the last few weeks we thought it was only appropriate to create this tribute to our current Fed Head.


Top 10 Things You Don't Want To Hear The Head of the Federal Reserve Say:

10. The systemic risk of the financial system is greatly exacerbated by how many big words I can use to confuse the public
9. If I follow the rainbow, there should be a pot of gold somewhere around here
8. Quick, get more ink for the printing presses
7. These dollar bills make great wallpaper
6. What the heck does systemic mean?
5. Which way to the soup kitchen?
4. Hey W, Do you have Alan Greenspan's cell phone number?
3. How do I start this helicopter?
2. Hi, I'm calling for the U.S. Government, can we get a loan mod?
1. Heads, I lower the discount rate...Tails, I raise it.

Loan Officer Fraud and Greed - October 23, 2008
While most people point all the fingers at Wall Street for the current mortgage mess a lot of the blame should go towards the individual loan officers. Mortgages Made Simple logo Whether it be that they over-stated a borrower's income or pushed the borrower into a bad loan so the loan officer would make more money, the loan officers need to be regulated better.

I have had many different ideas on how to regulate loan officers, but it comes down to the borrower level. A borrower has to ask the loan officer they're working with if he/she is licensed. If they are not licensed find one who is. Every state has an online licensee list, so you can easily check. It doesn't insure you won't be ripped off but it gives your loan officer more credilbilty. Fortunately due to the industry consolidation it will work itself out and we'll move forward with more professional loan officers as the unlicensed ones will leave the industry.
