Using the Federal Reserve Stimulus 2012 to make Home Improvements

Federal Reserve Pumps More Stimulus Money Into US Economy

With a Slow economic recovery over the past 3 to 4 years, the United States Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernacke announced another stimulus program to help stimulate the economy. Announced on September 13th, the Federal Reserve committed to low interest rates until 2015, and an open ended quantitative easing program, with the Federal Reserve buying 40 billion dollars in mortgage backed securities without end, according to has a full transcript of the announcement and press conference with Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernacke ( This will allow banks to have more capital and improve loaning abilities of banks all around the country.

What this means to Myrtle Beach, SC area residents and the surrounding North Carolina and South Carolina coastal areas is more lending opportunities for first time home buyers, businesses, investors, and car buyers. The Federal Reserve is hoping that by taking these drastic measures, it will spur homeowners and businesses to expand, and make improvements to existing properties and infrastructure.  As many local Myrtle Beach hotels and businesses have been putting off building improvements, due to volatility, and a slower than expected economic recovery, this move by the Federal Reserve should open up more lending sources for many hotels and businesses. Also, the Federal Reserve is hoping that this will give homeowners access to low interest capital for home improvements, especially energy efficient home improvements that reduce carbon emissions. Homeowners have been in the same situation as businesses, putting off many home improvement projects for months and years.  Look for banks to ease requirements for equity line loans for homeowners, first time home buyer programs, investment property loans, and small business loans.

With most small businesses surviving the after effects of the recession in the  Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area, yet not profiting like they were before the recession, it is good news. This means access to more capital to invest into real estate, much needed building improvements, advertising investments, and other key tools needed to make their business plans work.  Myrtle Beach is quickly becoming one of the best beaches in America to visit, with TV spots on Fox News, ABC News, and many other news outlets.
