  • Thanks for the presentation. It was good to see even though it is sad to think that many of the things that provoked the mortgage meltdown haven't been dealt with. For example, se are still waiting for new regulations to take care of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. To get more information on how it affects you, you can visit as at http://www.miamimortgagehome.com or at our offices at Miami Mortgage Home, 95 Merrick Way, Suite 514, Coral Gables, FL 33134.

    It just a shame that what happended a couple of years ago may happen again very soon.
