Home Buyers Feel Pain from Government Shutdown

Home buyers are beginning to feel the pain from the government playing their game of politics.
Home buyers are beginning to feel the pain from the government playing their game of politics.

Realtors say the government shutdown is making it difficult for home buyers to get approval for mortgages because without paperwork from the IRS and Social Security Administration, banks and other mortgage lenders are less liking to make loans. 

"The government is making it more and more difficult at a time when interest rates are good, houses are available, so therefore it's making it harder for a buyer to buy a home,” said Dee Ann Martin from Advantage Realtor Group.

Martin says home buyers should give any type of paperwork like tax returns and pay stubs to their lender as soon as possible and try to work with local lenders to speed up the process.
