Local Realtors are lobbying lawmakers to battle what might be the next bumps in the road to recovery for the struggling real estate market — proposed changes in federal law that would reduce the size of government-backed loans and raise minimum down payments for borrowers. Leaders of the Realtor trade associations in Burbank and Glendale visited Washington in mid-May, asking Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank), Brad Sherman (D- Sherman Oaks) and others to block the changes. They say a proposed down payment requirement of as high as 20% would force many qualified buyers to the sidelines, and reducing federal loan guarantees from $729,750 to $417,000 would undermine values in an area where most homes sell for far more than that.
