Over the past year, Fannie Mae has sought to impose higher net worth requirements on seller/servicers but has been rebuffed at least temporarily by its regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, industry sources familiar with the matter told Inside The GSEs. These same sources argue that the FHFA is definitely open to the idea of hiking the current net worth minimum of $2.5 million, but it wants to make sure that any change applies equally to originators that sell to both Fannie and Freddie. Right now this is a process, cautioned one observer. Its not an event. Theres no timeframe on this yet.
