FHFA, Fannie, Freddie Riding With CFPB Momentum on eClosings

Officials at the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac enthusiastically jumped on board a high-profile effort begun by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau last week to promote eClosings as a way to reduce or eliminate many of the “pain points” associated with the mortgage closing process. At a public forum at its headquarters in Washington, DC, the CFPB announced it would launch a new, voluntary pilot project later this year that supporters hope will re-invigorate government housing agency officials, mortgage bankers and industry technology representatives and take their previous efforts related to eMortgages to a much higher level.

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.
