AIME’s Anthony Casa on the mortgage industry’s most pressing topics

Casa addresses the Federal Reserve, forbearance, the nation's record-high unemployment and more

HousingWire CEO Clayton Collins sat down with Association of Independent Mortgage Experts Chairman Anthony Casa to discuss some of the most pressing issues pertaining to the housing industry as the coronavirus that causes COVID-19 continues to create uncertainty within the market.

The pair evaluate the Federal Reserve’s move to drop interest rates, which has created an increased demand for mortgage-back securities, the nation’s recently announced all-time high in jobless claims and United Wholesale Mortgage’s decision to tighten underwriting standards on verifying income and employment as more and more American borrowers face unemployment.

Additionally, Casa addresses Congress’ call of encouragement to the mortgage industry in the hopes of providing forbearance to consumers who are experiencing financial difficulty during this tumultuous time.

According to Casa, when the housing industry looks back on this period of crisis, they will have to consider the impact U.S. political figures had on the market during the pandemic.
