From a plugged-in reader refinancing a home up in Portland:
We just signed on our refinance (4.625% for 1 point) and we were talking to a woman who worked at the title company and she said things are going right back to the old (bad) ways. People taking mortgages that over extend them financially, brokers pushing through anything they can. She said it is going straight back to how things were before and she wasn’t happy about it.
Is it an “only in Oregon” or anomalous report?
