    Mortgage lenders are continuing to loosen their standards, despite growing fears that relaxed lending practices could increase risks for borrowers and lenders in overheated housing markets.

    Novel loan products have helped fuel much of the run-up, which continues to defy expectations, as reflected in home-sales data released yesterday. Existing-home sales hit another record in June, up 2.7% from May's heated levels, according to the National Association of Realtors. Median home prices rose 14.7% from June 2004.

    I see - its class warfare - at least it "facists economic banking" - if your wealthy

    you get to drive up the price on everyone elses home by placing the financial

    institutions in a situation where the wealthy elite are allowed to bid up property

    prices to finance their lifestyles ......?
