Former MBA President David Stevens: There is an outrageous amount of liquidity pressure on nonbanks
In today’s Daily Download episode, HousingWire Digital Producer Alcynna Lloyd interviews Mountain Lake Consulting CEO David Stevens, who is also the former head of the Federal Housing Administration and former Mortgage Bankers Association president, on the growing liquidity pressure that nonbanks are facing.
Stevens comments on whether or not the Federal Housing Finance Agency is doing enough to address the nation’s uptick in forbearance requests from financially strained borrowers, stating, “There’s still an outrageous amount of liquidity being advanced for servicing that Freddie and Fannie own that these services are servicing for them on their behalf.”
He added that it’s putting an “outrageous amount of liquidity pressure onto the nonbank community in particular, but also for servicers across the board.”
But before jumping into the interview, HousingWire’s HW+ Managing Editor Brena Nath touches on today’s top stories ranging from the coronavirus’ impact on California’s real estate market and Movement Mortgage’s decision to lower its minimum FICO credit scores on Federal Housing Administration and Department of Veterans Affairs loans.
