Treasury Gives More Investment Freedom

The Biden administration wants to review the limitations put in place by former U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, but in the meantime is allowing the two government-back lenders to expand its offerings.

Some real estate observers believe this could promote better housing stability by pulling a number of properties off the market.

Real estate in some places like New York is starting to see inventory drop, with many properties seeing fewer days on the market. That means the current “buyer's market” is swiftly heading into a “seller's” one, where home prices – and property values – could rise significantly.

Typically, mortgage lenders are less likely to provide loans that couldn't, at some point, be purchased by agencies like Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
