In 2006, the FHA's market share was about 3% of total originations. Today, that number is closer to 10%, and climbing fast.

We are predicting robust growth in FHA originations this year.

  • Since July, 2007 there has been unprecedented volatility in the secondary market for mortgage loans. The market for non-traditional loans has dried up, and investors are looking askance at anything outside of the conforming or government arena. The GSE's have taken steps to insulate against declining market values, and tighter underwriting guidelines will remain in place for some time to come. Combine these changes with a new set of industry regulations addressing home ownership and predatory lending, and you have a perfect scenario for the growth of FHA loan demand.
  • Housing is the largest domestic policy issue on the horizon as we head into the elections for the U.S. Presidency this fall. The recently passed Stimulus Bill included a number of changes that will have a positive impact on FHA programs, including a new floor of $271,050 and maximum loan limits of up to $729,750. These limits are set to expire on December 31, 2008, giving lenders plenty of time to hop on the bandwagon
