Bill Gross says to Invest in Fannie-Freddie Debt

More generally, he says to invest close to the "government umbrella:" agency securities and government guaranteed debt. He also says that he thinks LIBOR will decline sharply once the various government programs actually start getting put into operation.

Gross is the Warren Buffet of fixed-income: for example, his bond funds avoided subprime (just as Buffet avoided the tech bubble). But one thing he doesn't mention in this Bloomberg interview is the prepayment-market risk embedded in GSE securities. I do wonder whether the increasingly tough underwriting standards for home borrowers will remain around for awhile. If they do, we should see a structural shift in prepayment behavior for a long time, with conditional prepayment rates (or PSAs) remaining low for years to come.

Before you go promoting Gross, you might want to check how much of his fund is in Fannie/Freddie? Conflict of interest?

It is must to know the answer for the question, what is the value of the asset in your local real estate market? If you don’t know the answer means just search for the clues by using the David Lindahl scam report. As the property values are changing day by day in a fast manner, you need to be aware of knowing the sale valve of the property. In this unstable world it is not a big thing for the property value to oscillate from $16000 to $25000 in a period of month. In case you buy a property and you thing to sell it then you can either lose or gain several amount of currency almost. So get more info about the current real estate property sale rate.
