A New House – Risks and Benefits The government bodies that influence the national fiscal policies that potentially affect the housing market are the Federal Reserve. This body decides the rise and fall of interest rates. If the rate decreases, more money is introduced into the economy. The interest rates to decrease and therefore increase the demand for the housing market and then solidifies the prices of homes. And if the rate increases, less money goes into the economy and interest rates will increase and the demand for houses will fall. One more government body that will influence the national fiscal’s policies is The Department of Treasury. The Home Affordable Refinance program was introduced by The Department of Treasury in 2009 to help homeowners who have a solid payment history on an existing mortgage owned by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. These home owners were able to refinance their home loans and take advantage of  today’s lower mortgage rates.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
