With only a few more days until 2011, we thought it was the perfect time to reflect on the past year and that means showing you the biggest news of 2010.
While 2010 was a challenging year, it hasn’t been all negative. The Department of Housing and Urban Development released a new low cost reverse mortgage product that the industry has wanted for years and even the principal limit reduction came with a bit of a surprise. Probably the biggest news of the year comes from Ginnie Mae, which helped expand the secondary market and lower costs for consumers. Without it, 2010 would’ve been a whole lot different.
With applications trending upward and a low cost reverse mortgage to offer consumers, things are looking up for 2011. Before everyone starts celebrating the holidays with family, here are the most popular stories of 2010 based on the number of people who viewed them.
