MandyBrazil | Feb 27, 2013 03:58 AM ET if the bank is demanding 30% down and 760 score plus verification of income plus one year payments in bank, how can it be a risk? this is great news

tarandfeathers | Feb 27, 2013 06:17 AM ET Worry? Worry about what? No matter what the banks do they have no fear!. The government is going to bail them out at our expense. Plus the banks will make a hefty profit on it anyway like they have now!

Sanoran | Feb 27, 2013 06:31 AM ET What `secondary markets`. bin-Bernanke is buying mortgages from Banks. bin-Bernanke never uses his personal funds... he prints money, in a convoluted manner. The Banks are eager to lend, because they are making a killing on commissions just by being middlemen. bin-Bernanke is not elected. He is kept in power by the Big Banks. So it is understandable that bin-Bernanke wants the Banks to get big bonuses. US Citizens cannot kick Bernanke out, but they are getting painfully rear-fornicated by Bernanke every time they fill up their gas tanks. The poorer you are the harder you are fornicated by Bernanke-inflation.

matt1966 | Feb 27, 2013 06:38 AM ET The yields jumbo loans provide maybe relatively better than conventional loans but they are a lot worse relatively speaking to what they were during the housing boom. So now, these loans, with their associated risks, are being securitized for a much smaller reward than before. Seems investors haven`t learned a thing. And when you use a REIT to buy a slice of this hot mess, you are REALLY ROLLING THE DICE. There is no way to know what is in those things-

ckoffend | Feb 27, 2013 07:00 AM ET This should be the standard requirement for all government back/purchased mortgages: "put up 30 percent of equity, show a FICO credit score topping 760, provide years of tax records and prove that he or she has a year of mortgage payments in the bank. "

sidfeinberg | Feb 27, 2013 07:08 AM ET Within 3 years, you`ll see the ALT A, and Sub Prime markets reinvent themselves.

MillionaireWageSlave | Feb 27, 2013 07:51 AM ET Well should I? Be worried?

giofls | Feb 27, 2013 08:04 AM ET Worried about jumbo loans? No. These are primarily to high income folks, require large down payments, and have very low risk. Worried about sub-prime coming back? Yes, since there has been no fundamental change in government policy, and if the markets busts again the taxpayers will once again pick up the tab. Worried about FHA doing exactly what they are doing today? Extremely. 3% down mortgages who can`t afford them is about as certain a disaster as there can be.
