If you’re the sort of person who loves following the thoughts of a good policy wonk, and you’re interested in the mortgage industry, then this is the big week for you. The annual American Mortgage Conference is taking place this week, in Raleigh, NC. If there were a cabal controlling the mortgage industry, this would be it. Bankers, credit officers, and government policy makers get together to discuss the future of the industry. One of the big topics this year? The 15-year Wealth Builder Loan for new home buyers — a reworking of the original 15-year loan, focused on quicker pay-down of equity.
