Reverse Fortunes Weekly Podcast Episode #233
Amid the FHA’s long-awaited audit, Reverse Focus’ latest podcast discusses that in order to shore up finances for its negative $16.3 billion economic state, HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan says FHA plans to raise annual premiums of its froward business by 10 basis points and sell 10,000 delinquent loans per quarter. Currently, the HECM program stands at a negative $2.8 billion.
Reverse Focus’ Shannon Hicks also discusses NRMLA’s Peter Bell settling the score about the pros and cons of reverse mortgages after a local TV news reporter incorrectly referenced high interest rates. Also in the podcast, although months of recent speculation on the housing recovery have shown the number of underwater homeowners has fallen modestly, the impending fiscal cliff threatens growth potential.
