Changes to Mortgage Rules & Cap Gains Exemptions

New Federal mortgage regulation changes for buyers with <20% down and non-residents come into play Oct 02/2016,  Oct 17/2016 and Nov 30/2016. Changes include:

1. Higher qualifying rates ("posted" rates vs. "discounted" rates)
2. Changes to principal residence Capital Gains exemptions for non-residents 

Net effect: Buyers with <20% down will qualify for less & non-resident Sellers will need to look closely at the tax implications of selling their properties.
