Urban Institute: GSE Denial Rates Higher for Weaker Credit Profiles

A new analysis by the Urban Institute released last week found that GSE denial rates for weaker credit profile applicants, including many minority applicants, were much higher than denial rates for all applicants. The UI’s analysis of Home Mortgage Disclosure Act data found at least 16 percent of applicants were denied Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac loans for purchase of an owner-occupied property in 2012. However, when compared to CoreLogic’s data, the UI also found the denial rate for low credit GSE applicants was at least 54 percent.

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.
