The loan crisis locks out would be defaulters, not buyers. In order to be a buyer, you must satisfy the first predicate of purchase, and that is affordability. You show contempt for your audience, and ignorance of the basic facts, when you create from every story you write on this matter a new and more pitiable victim class.

The bigger problem is 21 year olds buying houses. Laurel Tokar looks really responsible, just as tattoos are a most have thing for kids so is having a house!

Wonder if she even brought any $$$ to the table.

She is a foreclosures waiting to happen!

Another 20-dumbthing thinking they can take on crippling debt and pull it off. Tokar, you're an idiot. Wait a year or two, save some money, and PAY LESS. Housing is coming down folks. The easy money is dead. DUHH!

"The problem is exacerbated in states with pricey housing markets, including Maryland, because loans that are more difficult to obtain include jumbo mortgages that exceed $417,000 and so-called 80-20 mortgages, which are two loans that cover the entire cost of a home so that no down payment is needed."
