Former FHFA Acting Director DeMarco Resigns from Agency

The former acting director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency tendered his resignation from the FHFA last week in order to “seek other opportunities.” Edward DeMarco, who served as the agency’s “temporary” head from September 2009 until January 2014, submitted his resignation – effective April 30 – to his successor, FHFA Director Mel Watt.

HUD has announced a 25 basis point cut in FHA premiums, which is slated to take effect in late January. Is your lending shop for or against a cut in FHA premiums?

For. It should help lending volumes.
Against. The private MI sector should take on this risk, not the government.
Too early to say.
I believe the new White House may scuttle the idea so it doesn’t matter.
