As you know the banking industry is extremely unstable. It is making this business of selling a house very unsettling.
Countrywide Home loans announced on Wed. that they may be filing for Bankruptcy in the future. Bank of America recently gave Countrywide a cash infusion. First Magnus another extremely large sub prime lender is not in business as of August 16 th, 2007.I have had in the past 6 months investors who were willing to purchase properties and now can not qualify due to the changes in the banking industry. The consumer confidence and investor confidence in purchasing a home is extremely unstable now. It is like the customers I have hear the news and just put on the breaks.
