Stock Market Swings, RESPA, Small Business Loans and More

The big swings in the stock market in early February shouldn’t hurt real estate. An appeals court sides with NAR that a lender’s marketing service agreement didn’t violate RESPA. The Supreme Court will probably end a stay on an EPA water rule that real estate interests don’t like but a new rule should be better. Eased requirements for a popular small business loan holds promise for more business in real estate. The federal budget deal signed in mid-February has a lot of good things for real estate, including a flood insurance extension.
