FHFA: Private MI Eligibility Standards a Work in Progress

Expect eligibility standards for mortgage insurance firms that rely on the GSEs later this year, according to MI executives’ reading of the long-awaited strategic plan released this week by the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Although the plan didn’t say much about MI eligibility, it does carry the veiled promise that pending standards, including risk-to-capital rules – are forthcoming. “FHFA hasn’t dropped the ball on the issue,” said one MI consultant who has met with the agency over the topic. “They now know that the [GSE reform bill] is dead and they want to make sure they get it right.”

Poll

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.
2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.
Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.
Not in my lifetime.
