This combined with the "SAFE" act which threatens to severely limit seller-financed sales isn't going to help the housing market any. I think it's going to force RE investors (especially flippers) to get much more creative. I also think RE investors as a whole need put forth a voice for their own interests.
I'm sure mortgage brokers and bankers have plenty of lobbyists and organizations putting forth their point of view while real estate investors may only have their local REI association. I submitted my thoughts during the SAFE act comment period and may have even posted the link on this forum...gotta make our collective voices heard or deal with the poorly thought-out legislation that will otherwise ensue.
