In this video, NAR President Steve Brown and the HUD Secretary Julián Castro discuss the timeliest legislative and regulatory policy matters impacting the real estate market and the vital role that HUD and FHA play in homeownership.
Topics covered include:
• How the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and HUD are instituting policies to help make the dream of homeownership a reality for Americans.
• The impact of access to credit, mortgage insurance premiums, and strict and costly condo regulations.
• How to ensure further funding for housing counseling at every turn in the home buying process.
• Making sure that programs like HAWK (Homeowners Armed With Knowledge) continue to grow, expanding the pool of qualified buyers.
The webcast of this video kicked off NAR's new Real Insights initiative. The goal of Real Insights is to give today's home buyers and sellers the information they need to succeed.
