Jul 2011 Summer at Rockwall HarborNew Mortgage Rules roll out Jan 10 2014- and that day is TODAY.

But what do the NEW rules really mean?

The changes should not mean much has changed- but here is the short version- they are changes whose purpose is to insure that borrowers of monies for mortgages have the ability to repay said mortgages.

With that said- the changes that are rolled out today should not intimidate you from continuing or beginning your home search.  What they should do is encourage you to be prepared- talk to a lender- actually a FEW lenders- and working with your financial history, financial present and financial future (crystal ball magic these lenders have)- Working with what you know come up with a home shopping budget that makes financial sense for YOU!

Just remember the NEW magic number when working on your budget- 43%- stay under that and be able to verify income and it will be as if nothing ever changed- Many people will simply be saying….New Rules- What New Rules?
