Mortgages are only part of our lives, right? I only know what I read online, although Abraham Lincoln once said, “Don’t believe everything you read on the internet.” Before you fly down the freeway on a summer vacation, I also know that I have received my fair share of speeding tickets. (For those of you who haven’t, it’s a “punch in the gut” feeling to see that red light in the rear-view mirror. I’ve been able to talk them out of… none.) In something that smacks of Big Brother watching all the data, apparently 9 percent of drivers had a speeding ticket in 2022. Those drivers probably knew the speed limits, but in case you’d like a map of worldwide speed limits, here you go. (Thank you to Carol K.!) The official FHFA 2024 loan limits won’t be out until around Thanksgiving, of course, but in terms of inventions there is no limit on innovation. Face it: there isn’t a lot of innovation in lending.
