FHA Tightening, Gen X, Floods, Fair Housing

Some 50,000 loan applicants could be affected as FHA tightens standards for higher-risk borrowers. REALTORS® have stepped up to help in the aftermath of Midwestern floods but more help is needed, and Gen Xers are buying bigger homes to accommodate multigenerational families. Also, NAR supports expanding Fair Housing to include protections based on gender identity and sexual orientation.
