Des Moines Real Estate Roundup 10-3-08

Week Ending October 3rd, 2008
Congress followed suit this week by passing the Senates version of the Financial Crisis Bailout bill.  It has been described by some as the salvation of the US Economy all the way to a Crap Sandwich.  Either way, for the housing industry it should give relief to banks and home owners facing potential foreclosure.  How fast will we all begin to see the effects of this bill?  According to economic experts it won’t happen overnight.  Somewhere around 30 days to 3 months seems to be the consensus. What are your thoughts on the Bailout Bill?  Salvation or Crap Sandwich?
