    Mine haven't.

    I bet if I walked into a car dealership right now with the proper down payment I would walk out with a new car.

    I also bet if I wanted t0 buy a house right now I could with the normal 20% down.

    still great rates on 80/15/5s, where you only need a 5% down payment

    this country needs to spend more time looking at hard data and less time getting emotional about the last news story on they saw on CNN

    I haven't had any problem, but according to my local paper, banks are now demanding 40% down for real estate loans.

    Perhaps if your credit is poor but I highly doubt that if you have good credit.

    No, it was actually for everyone. The people the article feature interviewed were planning on putting 30% down on a condo that cost $435,000ish and the bank changed the terms to 40% down. From the article, they had good credit.

    Do you mail them back in a box filled with rocks? Better yet, go to the barbershop, collect a handful of hair. Put the hair in the envelope, mail it back to the credit card companies. Then go back to normal routine. Works everytime.
