Why Fannie and Freddie will likely last

I was talking with SF Chronicle columnist Kathleen Pender yesterday, and she shared a trenchant observation:  now that Congress has figured out a way to use the GSEs to raise revenue (via raising G-fees), it will always have an incentive to keep them.  Specifically, Congress has now tied itself to the GSEs, because it will take awhile for increased G-fees to repay the cost of the payroll tax cut.

DAVE LINDAHL says that Real Estate Investment can be a great profitable market. Availability of good house for sale/rent or cash may not be a real problem. The actual problem is to find the right neighborhood for this business. If we find a correct neighborhood then buying and selling property is always an easy task.
