Insight from Housing Wire:
Predicting the future of housing finance policy
Will new FHA, FHFA leaders get to implement any changes before the next election?
With several key housing appointments still vacant and uncertainty building around legislative direction after the upcoming mid-term elections, forecasting the future of housing finance is tricky. But a panel of eminent industry leaders gave it a try at the Mortgage Bankers Association Secondary Marketing conference.
Helen Kanovsky, MBA general counsel, led the lively discussion featuring Gary Acosta, co-founder and CEO of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals, Bill Emerson, vice chairman of Rock Holdings, John Hughes, vice president of federal government relations at USAA, Pete Mills, senior vice president of residential policy and member engagement at the MBA, and Jaret Seiberg, managing director of financial services and housing policy at Cowen Washington Research Group.
