13% of the US population are 65 and older – a figure that has tripled from 4% in the 1900’s. In 2050 about 1 in 5 Americans will be over 65 yrs.

Getting Past the Mortgage Crisis
Compliance is now the buzzword when it comes to the mortgage lending industry. The industry, after the huge fall-out, is now going back to the way it used to do business. Proof of income, proof of assets and good to excellent credit scores are once again the benchmarks by which consumers are able to obtain loans.
