HUD to Delete Loan Limit Appeals Process in Final Rule

The Department of Housing and Urban Development this month expects to issue a final rule that would eliminate the process of requesting alternative FHA maximum loan limits due to improved access to, and availability of, home sales data. With the availability of comprehensive national databases of home sales transactions and continuing data-collection efforts, the regulations governing requests for alternative maximum mortgage limits have become outdated and unnecessary, the agency said.

With rates higher this year, there has been talk of lenders liberalizing their underwriting standards in an effort to increase volume and make up for lower refis.

Do you think your shop will loosen standards over the coming three months?

Yes, but not by much.
Yes, by a lot.
Yes and, heck, we may even do non-QM lending.
No, not at all.
No and we may even tighten credit.
