As things were sorted out and business continued, it was definitely a relief. Posted on Saturday, April 30th, 2011 at 4:57pm.

The remaining programs, like VA, would not be enough to support the supply of houses on the market and prices would plummet. I'm glad they resolved the problem before it trickled down to us.
