Tighter QM lending standards start today

New qualified mortgage (QM) rules go into effect today. While the law creates new standards for buyers – ones that could remove marginal buyers from the process – it also creates standards to make lenders more responsive to buyers and sellers, notably in cases where the home is a short sales or other non-traditional deal.

The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) released resources to help consumers understand the new QM process.
 
“We want to make sure that people are aware of their new protections so they have the knowledge to make sound decisions about their financial futures,” says CFPB Director Richard Cordray.

In the end, money proved more important to the Reid Park Zoological Society than open land and a vision of reintroducing imperiled species.

Three years after getting a donation of 765 acres southwest of Tucson for land conservation, the nonprofit zoological society has sold it to a mining company, Freeport McMoRan Copper and Gold, for $3 million.

At the time he donated the land in late 2010, Gilbert Aguirre had said he wanted to œgive something back to the community after selling 5,000 nearby acres to a developer and œmaking a lot of money off the deal. Aguirre, a native Tucsonan who grew up in the area that is now Green Valley/Sahuarita, is a California rancher and developer.
