Fannie Falls Short of SF AH Goals, Both GSEs Surpass Multifam Goals
November 3, 2017
The Federal Housing Finance Agency’s annual report on housing showed that Fannie Mae fell short of meeting two of its affordable housing goals for 2016. The GSE came close at 5.2 percent but did not meet the 5.4 percent benchmark goal for very-low income buyers purchasing single-family homes. Fannie also did not meet the goal for low-income buyers refinancing their mortgages. The goal was 19.8 percent and Fannie topped out at 19.5 percent. However, Fannie did meet the 22.9 percent low-income home-purchase goal and surpassed its low-income area home-purchase goal of 19.7 percent by 0.5 percent.
