In Our LivingRoom: Meet Christen Carter of Busy Beaver Buttons

Meet Christen Carter of Busy Beaver Button Company

Busy Beaver Button Company, a thriving small business, was looking to grow their space, open a museum, and stay close to their original location on Armitage in Logan Square. With the help of Annie Coleman, Managing Broker of LivingRoom Realty, they purchased the perfect empty building sitting on a double wide lot a few blocks west of their original location on Armitage.

 

We asked them a few questions about their journey to expanding their headquarters.

Conventional Loan Limits Have Increased for 2018

On November 29, 2017, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac officially announced they would be increasing the conventional loan limits for 2018. We turned to mortgage broker Ben Deboer from Molitor Financial Group to find out a little more:

LRR: Can you tell us a little more about the specifics of this change?

Ben: The loan limit for conventional loans has been increased from $424,100 to $453,100 for single family home and condo purchases. This means that if you were on the cusp of needing a JUMBO loan that required a higher down payment, you now may be able to use a regular conventional loan allowing for a smaller down payment.
