Bloomberg, Tuesday, November 25, 2014
(RECAP: As the economy produces an increasing number of part-time jobs, that trend is colliding with rules that limit their value for homebuyers. The restriction, enacted after the housing crash, makes it more difficult for lenders to consider secondary income, resulting in a growing pile of loan denials.)
HousingWire , Tuesday, November 25, 2014
(RECAP: There is a key provision buried in the Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2015 that if implemented, is causing lenders to be concerned about the potentially costly impact it could have to them. The provision contained in Senate Bill 2438 would assess a new fee on lenders to fund certain risk management improvements in the FHA mortgage insurance program.)
HousingWire , Monday, November 24, 2014
(RECAP: The Federal Housing Finance Agency has announced the maximum conforming loan limits for mortgages to be acquired by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2015. For much of the country, the conforming loan limit for a one-unit property (or single-family home) will remain at $417,000 for 2015. According to the FHFA, the loan limits are established under the terms of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 and are calculated each year.)
Multi-Housing News , Friday, November 21, 2014
(RECAP: Arlington Mill Residences, an affordable housing community in Arlington, Va. has been named “Best Housing Development in Virginia.” The recognition represents the most prestigious award presented at the recent Virginia Governor’s Housing Conference Awards Luncheon. Designed by Rosslyn, Va.-based KGD Architecture, an architectural, interiors and planning firm, the property is a trailblazing project in several ways.)
CFPB Monitor , Monday, November 24, 2014
(RECAP: The U.S. Supreme Court has set January 21, 2015 as the date for oral argument in
Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc., which is the case presenting the issue whether disparate impact claims are cognizable under the Fair Housing Act. The petitioners’ merits brief was filed on November 17th.)
