Lending changes and special loans for DOCTORS :)

As an emergency measure three years ago, Congress raised federally backed loan amounts. Now if Congress does nothing these loan limits will decrease in October of this year. Therefore, lenders will stop taking applications for these amount as early as well NOW!

In anticipation of the expiration of current loan limits on Sept. 30, 2011, Bank of America has decided to stop accepting conventional and government applications for loan amounts that will exceed the permanent loan amounts. The deadline to submit loan applications was July 1.

According to an email from Bank of America, conventional loans that exceed the permanent loan limits will now be required to use non-conforming programs.

The FHA loan limits will change as such;

Orange and Los Angeles County has a current loan limit of $729,750. This will DECREASE by $104,250 to a limit of $625,500.

Riverside and San Bernadino County has a current loan limit of $500,000. This will DECREASE by $144,650 to a limit of $355,350.

Danielle - thanks for reminding me of the "doctors" loan. It has been around for a bit, but not many people seem to know about it - the public and real estate agents and doesn't get much press.

Before applying for doctors loans, take a look at your credit history and re-write it with details explaining why you had a difficult time making payments during a certain period of your life.Prefer only business loans for doctors if you are planing for a clinic.
