5 little turkeys standing by door,
One waddled off, and then there were 4.
4 little turkeys under a treee,
One waddled off, and then there were 3.
3 little turkeys with nothing to do,
One waddled off, and then there were 2.
2 little turkeys in the noon day sun,
One waddled off, and then there was 1.
One little turkey better run away,
For soon will come Thanksgiving day.

The loan limits on jumbo conforming loans will remain unchanged for the first nine months of 2011 the Federal Housing Finance Administration said Friday. The agency recently enacted a congressional continuing resolution to maintain the limits.
The maximum jumbo loan limit is generally $417,000, but can go as high as $729,750. Loan limits vary by county and are the greatest in "high-cost" areas, meaning the top 20 major metropolitan areas across the U.S.
President and founder of Total Mortgage Services John Walsh told HousingWire in a recent interview he believes that the loan limit should extended to its fullest in every city.
"My thought is you should expand that increased conforming loan limit countrywide because a lot of people fall between $417,000 and $729,750," Walsh said. "It would put a lot more people in the purchase market that wouldn't necessarily qualify under the jumbo program."
A full list of conforming jumbo loan limits can be found here.
We had a recent discussion of A Plan to Transfer Losses on Jumbo Toxic Mortgages to Taxpayers. Raising the conforming limit is a bad idea.
Hope dies slowly
Many Californians believe in appreciating price with more faith than they have in their god or religion. When confronted with the reality their home values are declining, they hope that prices will come back and give them more of the HELOC money they are entitled to. Hope and denial are evident in the on-again off-again listing with its vacillating price levels.

The owner of this property paid $580,000 on 3/15/2006. She put $136,000 of her own money into it which is why the prices have danced for over two years. She started with an asking price in May that would have made her whole. She has since dropped her asking price by over 60%! As her foreclosure draws near, the desperation becomes obvious. She really wants an offer.

Irvine may be special, but so far, no knife catcher has stepped up to grab this one. It is falling fast.
