Why are we trying to create more buyers?

PLUS: Paying Rent On Minimum Wage

Both Chase and Wells Fargo have announced that they will be doing 3% loans - in cooperation with Fannie Mae. The bottom line is that these are moves to create more buyers in a market where there is already too little inventory. Does this sound at all familiar? Well, think back to 2000-2005 when through subprime lending, more buyers were being created in a market that already had too many buyers. The results are something we are all familiar with. How this comparison escapes the experts at the big banks and Fannie Mae is a mystery to me. 

There is also an article out that declares that if you are earning minimum wage, you cannot afford the rent of a two bedroom apartment. I have news for you, when I earned minimum wage, I was NEVER able to afford ANY apartment on my income. That is why there are room mates.  In my first two bedroom apartment, I had three room mates. How is this news? Honestly, it feels like a more political attempt to have people assume that a minimum wage should equal a living wage. We will take some time to chat about that.

Finally, pending sales reach their highest point since the downturn, we will take a look at that and see if there is anything more interesting to learn from this info.
