Home Builders Applaud Congress for Restoring Higher FHA Loan Limits

WASHINGTON, D.C. – November 18, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) today applauded Congress for reinstating for another two years the higher conforming loan limits for the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), noting that this is an important step to help mend the struggling housing market.

“We commend congressional leaders in both parties and each chamber of Congress for taking this action to boost overall mortgage liquidity in the marketplace, create jobs, and provide home owners and home buyers with safe and affordable financing,” said NAHB Chairman Bob Nielsen, a home builder from Reno, Nev.

“Restoring the higher FHA loan limits will help to stabilize home values, provide constancy while private investors re-enter the market, and enable millions of creditworthy consumers to get home loans with the best mortgage rates and lowest fees and downpayment requirements,” he added.
