Dare I say it? "What took you so long??"
An announcement from government-owned mortgage giant Fannie Mae warns: "Defaulting borrowers who walk-away and had the capacity to pay or did not complete a workout alternative in good faith will be ineligible for a new Fannie Mae-backed mortgage loan for a period of seven years from the date of foreclosure."
I have to ask: Why only seven years? Up the ante!
