A closer look at the Regency Homes flop

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)
The Des Moines Business Record has a well-researched review of the collapse of Regency Homes. The whole affair is unfortunate, since it leaves people unemployed, contractors unpaid, and prospective homeowners in dire straits. The story rather strongly suggests that Regency simply overextended itself, and once Wells Fargo changed some of its lending terms, the overreach caused the company to topple. Bad loans hit Wells Fargo hard in October and again in January following the previous quarters' reports. The bank is still trying to contain the bad news, though it had started cutting back on higher-risk loans more than a year ago.
