FHFA’s Proposed G-fee Increase Enjoys Little Industry Support

As the Federal Housing Finance Agency mulls over a proposed increase in fees charged by the GSEs to provide guarantees on mortgage-backed securities, so far those advocating for a g-fee hike remain in the minority.

Yes, but not by much.
Yes, by a lot.
Yes and, heck, we may even do non-QM lending.

No and we may even tighten credit.
