National Association of Home Builder pushes Congress on reinstating higher loan limits


NAHB pushing Congress

Bob Nielsen, chairman of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and a home builder from Reno, released a statement today urging Congress to pass legislation to reinstate the higher loan limits for the Federal Housing Administration which expired on September 30, 2011.

“Legislation pending in the House and Senate will restore the higher mortgage loan limits for the Federal Housing Administration and is essential to help stabilize the nation’s housing financial markets.

“The FHA program is fully self-supporting, and a great example of a public-private partnership with lending institutions. Restoring the loan limits will provide millions of potential consumers in markets throughout the nation access to safe, affordable mortgage financing.

“To help mend the struggling housing market, stabilize home values, provide constancy while private investors re-enter the market and ensure that millions of creditworthy home borrowers can access the best possible mortgage rates, Congress must support this bill to help American families and get the lackluster economy moving forward.”
