FHA is “Bailout Broke,” Will Face Congress Scrutiny

In this week’s Reverse Focus podcast, Shannon Hicks discusses new specifics set forth by the Department of Housing and Urban Development regarding various aspects of counseling processes.

Also covered in the podcast, the Mortgage Professor Jack Guttentag says a moratorium on the standard fixed-rate product might not make the most sense for FHA as a method to shore up it’s insurance fund.
