Help after Midwest flooding

In this edition of Voice for Real Estate: Some 50,000 loan applicants could be affected as FHA tightens standards for higher-risk borrowers. REALTORS® have stepped up to help in the aftermath of Midwestern floods but more help is needed, and Gen Xers are buying bigger homes to accommodate multigenerational families.
With Bay Equity Home Loans, we offer a wide range of loan programs  such as FHA, USDA, Conventional and Jumbo, all with competitive rates!  As well as specialty programs that give back to the families and communities we serve.
