As you all know, the Federal Govt’s. Stimulus Package for 2008 included raising the conforming loan limits from $417,000 to $708,750 for Fairfield County. Now that
2008 is coming to an end, we have been anxiously waiting for news on a 2009 Stimulus Package that might continue(for another year) the higher conforming loan limits. Well, we finally got the news we’ve been waiting for………….the national conforming loan limits will revert back to $417K for 2009 EXCEPT in a few “high cost area’s” across the country.  Fairfield County happens to be one of those area’s and the new conforming loan limit for 2009 will be $511,750!!
The new mortgage loan limit will be a significant drop from the current $708,750 limit($197,000 less) which we’ve enjoyed in 2008 but better than the $417,000 limit most of the country will have to adhere to. This “interim” loan amount has been known by mortgage professionals as the “Conforming/Jumbo” and/or “Agency Jumbo” limit.

Despite all the negative press and media coverage lately, we still have plenty of banks ready and willing to lend money for purchasing or refinancing residential and commercial real estate. In fact there are still “stated income” loans available for loan amounts of up to $3,000,000! The rules are somewhat more strict, but none the less the banks are willing to lend.

Memorial Day is more than the start of summer. It is an opportunity to pause and remember the sacrifices, the gallantry, and bravery, to remember the fallen.

Over the past century, more than 35 million men and women answered the call to arms in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Iraq, and countless other unnamed military engagements. More than half a million of these men and women never came home. Some died in battle, others in captivity; but all died much too soon.

Recent military action in Afganhistan and Iraq has offered vivid reminders of the human reality of war: ordinary men and women leaving their homes and families, to risk their lives for an ideal of honor and duty, to protect the soldier next to them, and to preserve our freedom. People of patriotism and goodwill may debate the merits of any given war, police action, or humanitarian mission. But there should be no debate about our debt to the hundreds of thousands of American citizens who have given the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

Memorial day is a perfect time for us to honor and give thanks to the brave men and women of our Armed Forces who continue to risk their lives–sometimes paying the ultimate price–in order to ensure the peace, safety and prosperity of their fellow American,” stated Jeffrey reynolds, President/CEO of “We at want to make sure that on Memorial Day our veterans, our troops and their families see a flag on every home in America and understand the true depth of our gratitude.”
