  1. Can you explain all the new changes in purchasing a home. Recently going through buying and selling a home and it seems that since March ’15 there has been a lot of changes when applying for a mortgage. Paper trails, reimbursable bonus’ etc. I hear there is more changes coming in August ;\

    • Cindy, I could write books about the new changes in purchasing a home. Suffice it to say, be prepared to submit more documentation than you ever thought imaginable.
