Freddie Mac Starts Pilot Program With Looser Standards

Mortgage-finance giant Freddie Mac and two nonbank lenders are loosening income and documentation requirements for mortgage applicants in a new pilot program.

The changes announced Monday are designed to help boost mortgage originations among first-time buyers, applicants with low-to-moderate incomes and those who live in underserved areas.

The moves come nearly a decade after the start of the mortgage meltdown, as many consumers remain shut out of the housing market largely because they can’t meet the underwriting criteria that most lenders require. Under the Freddie program, applicants will be able use the income of people who will live with them but aren’t going to be on the mortgage to qualify.

In addition, income from second jobs that borrowers have held for a relatively short period will be factored in. The pilot also doesn’t require bank statements that would show a paper trail of how some borrowers save for their down payments.

Many of the pilot’s features are similar to what Fannie Mae currently allows on some mortgages it purchases but are new for Freddie Mac, which is among the largest purchasers of mortgages in the country. Freddie Mac says it purchases one in every four mortgages originated by lenders in the U.S.

In addition, borrowers who will be living with family or other individuals for at least 12 months after they purchase the home will be able to use those non-borrowers’ income to get approved for the mortgage. The income will be factored in to help improve the borrowers’ debt to income ratio, a key figure that compares borrowers’ monthly debt obligations to their gross monthly income.

Paperwork requirements will also loosen up for some borrowers who don’t have bank statements to show how they have saved for their down payment.

  6. Hillary needs more help up stairs to give a speech to 200 Temple U students. The large crowd turned out to hear her pitch for why she is the best Trump name-caller as well as the secondary topic of defeating terrorism with a better narrative and open borders.

    “Good point”
    “Love this post!! Very true!”

    On second thought, he probably has four or five accounts and writes the comments himself.

  18. Comrade Nom Deplorable, verbally armed and dangerous says:

    The twitiot makes a good point here. So far, no one at Wells has gone to jail. But some should.

    We know that WF employees padded their bonuses by setting up fake accounts. These employees defrauded the bank (and, possibly their customers–there is an intent issue there), committed identity theft, and possibly committed bank or wire fraud. These are state and federal criminal offenses.

    Now, I know that the twitiot would like to lock up execs for not discovering this sooner (it was WF that discovered and disclosed it, not the CFPB), or, horror of horrors, criminally charged for having the temerity to have incentive-based compensation metrics because sales goals=conspiracy to commit fraud, you know.

    Of course, there are countries that already have this sort of jurisprudence. China, North Korea, Venezuela, Eritrea and Iran come to mind.

    Holder Doctrine……..a June 1999 memorandum written by the then–deputy attorney general warning of the dangers of prosecuting big banks—a variant of the “too big to fail” argument that has since become so familiar. Holder’s memo asserted that “collateral consequences” from prosecutions—including corporate instability or collapse—should be taken into account when deciding whether to prosecute a big financial institution. That sentiment was echoed as late as 2012 by Lanny Breuer, then the head of the Justice Department’s criminal division, who said in a speech at the New York City Bar Association that he felt it was his duty to consider the health of the company, the industry, and the markets in deciding whether or not to file charges.

    Officials blaming the compound “Tannerite” …a compound used in target shooting found at sporting goods stores.

    http://www.outdoorhub.com/news/2016/09/19/officials-claiming-tannerite-used-ny-blasts/

    New York City authorities are claiming that the IED explosion in Chelsea, New York, contained a common and legal substance known as Tannerite.

    Made up of a mixture of high-grade ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder that is sold separately and then mixed on-site just before use, Tannerite can only be detonated by a high-velocity bullet.

    Tannerite is very popular and often used in target practice to mark a shot with a cloud of smoke and small explosion. Although Tannerite is very stable, it is not to be played with, as discovered by the guy in a recent OutdoorHub article who severed his leg shooting his lawnmower full of Tannerite.

    It’s important to note here that Tannerite can’t be detonated using methods such as a fuse, an electrical current (such as a cellphone), or any low-velocity handgun bullet moving less than 2,000 fps. The big one in there was cell phones, as both recent bombings used cell phones as detonators.

    With all this being known about Tannerite, it’s odd that officials would believe this highly stable substance was used in the recent explosion. Or is this just a way that Democrat politicians are attempting to get this substance banned?

    Trump is correct, of course.

    @jbarro

    Most of all,
    Trump’s comment that he’d date Ivanka if she weren’t his daughter is insulting to T iffany.

  33. LOL. This is how desperate the MSM is. CNN’s fact checker was showing how wrong Trump Jr.’s math is, but his is worse. He was trying to illustrate that 3 skittles out of a bowl of skittles misrepresents the ratio of Syrian refugee terrorists to that would kill you to Syrian refugees that won’t kill you. Somehow he came up with 1 in 3.64 billion chance that you would be killed by a Syrian refugee. Since there are only roughly twice that many people in the world he must somehow be allowing for, “Sure some of the refugees *will* be murderous terrorists, but the chance of one of them actually killing *you* (as opposed to someone else, I guess?) is very small.” I like to watch CNN for a few minutes a day(for humor), but I swear it will drop your IQ significantly if you go a half hour or more. I’d wager you would get stupider faster watching CNN all day than you would watching a Three Stooges marathon.

  34. BTW, Hillary back in medical isolation until the debate.

  40. Comrade Nom Deplorable, verbally armed and dangerous says:

    Steamturd

    There is a case to be made that WF employees committed criminal acts. I laid out a few statutes above. I am sure I can come up with many more.

    Aside from that, you have to find criminal conduct. You can make the argument for conspiracy if you can prove up the chain that this went on and higher ups turned a blind eye.

    That is hard to prove and notwithstanding the heat and light over this, the LA Times reported about it THREE YEARS AGO. And in that report, they said that WF fired people that they caught doing it.

    Essentially, the argument advanced by Warren and the twitiot is that you are criminally liable if you knew your employees did bad things but didn’t slam the door on the ability for other employees to do the same. Thus, if your car wash employees are pilfering change from customers cars, firing the thieves is not good enough. You have to make sure no one else can steal otherwise you are guilty of a crime.

    Get that? It isn’t enough to ban stealing and fire thieves. Unless you foreclose all opportunities for others to steal, you’re a thief.

    Orwell would be proud.

    Hillary out. Elizabeth Warren in. The thought crossed my mind when Warren’s over-the-top, obviously rehearsed, excoriation of the Wells Fargo CEO happened today. Trump is staying on message lately, but I bet he can’t bite his tongue hard enough to keep the words in when he wants to say Pocahontas.

    Rory,

    Of course they aren’t coming out. Trump is as much the Dems candidate as the Tea Party’s. As many Dems voted for Trump as republicans. This election was hijacked back in the winter.

    And your problem with Tax Foundation is what, exactly? Sounds like they are making your case. BTW, the Slate reporter must have been at a different event because the reporting I heard on that event (CNBC) had a different top marginal Corp rate and didn’t have the 15% pass through. Which I would have thought was a completely misreported figure if I didn’t hear the CNBC reporter saying that it was no longer on the table. This same Slate reporter also discussed the Kansas passthrough tax proposal which the left has characterized as making ALL LLC and partnership income tax-free. I will admit that I have not dived into that but it sounds completely cracked. So either the Kansas Legislature had an epic brain cramp or the left is spinning bullshit as furiously as they can.

  50. Fabius Maximus says:

    Was it the Dem convention that nominated him? I love the ones in here that are holding on to the supposed ground swell of working class Americans coming to vote for Trump.

    Jennifer Aniston has become an avatar for Brangelina schadenfreude.

    Mentioning Aniston in the context of Pitt and Jolie’s divorce may seem harmless and fun, since there’s some kind of meta-story to the whole thing, but it’s also a brutal reminder of the sexist way that Aniston has been treated since she and Pitt divorced.

    Aniston wrote that she was fed up with the way she’s been treated, and with “the objectification and scrutiny we put women through.” She lamented how much we tend to define a woman’s value “based on her marital and maternal status.”

    “If I am some kind of symbol to some people out there, then clearly I am an example of the lens through which we, as a society, view our mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, female friends and colleagues,” Aniston wrote. “The sheer amount of resources being spent right now by press trying to simply uncover whether or not I am pregnant points to the perpetuation of this notion that women are somehow incomplete, unsuccessful, or unhappy if they’re not married with children.”

    STRUTHERS, OHIO — On a recent Saturday, standing in her driveway, Halle Minchin Skook could not fathom why her neighbor was pissing on Youngstown’s Democratic tradition and voting for Donald Trump this election cycle.

    “He literally pees out his window,” Skook said, gesturing toward the house next door on Como Street, occupied by a Trump backer.

    The 26-year-old special education teacher at Struthers Middle School didn’t even want to mow the strip of grass between her home and that of her neighbor.

    “The stench of urine on the grass is awful,” her mother piped in.

    Standing in the driveway outside her hunter green wood paneled childhood home where she still lived, Skook was scornful of the following that Trump has developed in Struthers, a traditionally Democratic stronghold in the heart of working class Mahoning County, along the eastern flank of Ohio.

    “I don’t understand how any educated person who watches all of the political things on TV can vote for him,” Skook complained. “He’s getting nuclear launch codes if he gets elected. He would just blow up somewhere. I just don’t see him being a good leader.”

    In case it wasn’t already clear, Skook is voting for Hillary Clinton.

    But here on Como Street in Struthers, where CBS News spent a recent weekend knocking on every door on the block, Skook was in the minority. All around her, the community was ditching their Democratic roots and flocking to Trump.

    Elizabeth Warren would hammer Wall Street and jail the people who put the economy in a ditch. These folks are the reason that Real Estate is so high priced around here. We need a good old fashioned Wall Street perp walk/blood letting. Then house prices will fall.

  83. SteamTurd the bourgeois drone, supportor of the canklephate and hyper about incarcenation says:

    “We need a good old fashioned Wall Street perp walk/blood letting.”

    We do, but the populace probably wouldn’t even care. They are too busy gabbing about celebrity divorces.

  84. Essex says:

    Why does Janet Yellen sound like a cross between Rainman and Kermit the Frog?

  85. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Twitiot

    For that 3%: 17 guns per person

    First, I call bullshit on the prior assertion.

    Second, I guess I need to go shopping.

    Third, I respectfully suggest you do too; make it sporting for someone

  86. No One says:

    Essex,
    Yellen’s voice reminds me of this description from a famous novel:
    “..her voice always sounded as if it were falling in drops, not of water, but of mayonnaise”

    Elizabeth Warren would hammer Wall Street and jail the people who put the economy in a ditch.

    I suppose that’s why she endorsed the candidate who took the most money from Goldman Sachs, et al.

  88. Essex says:

    Strange bedfellows. stayed tuned.

  89. Fabius Maximus says:

    Moose,

    “I suppose that’s why she endorsed the candidate who took the most money from Goldman Sachs, et al.”

    Can you roll the numbers here? And factor in how the Hampton Set are shunning Trump in Quid Pro Quo!

    Here never gave to them, so they are not giving to him. Is the most money, because the other number is zero?

  90. Fabius Maximus says:

    Eddie Ray,

    “That’s what I like to call a distinction without a difference.”

    Only a lawyer could argue “not for sale” and “bought and sold” are equal!

  91. Clotpoll says:

    I find it hilarious that the Kochs are among the biggest contributors to PBS.

  92. Clotpoll says:

    It’s all fun and games until Bert and Ernie get waterboarded.

  93. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Rory,

    “Only a lawyer could argue “not for sale” and “bought and sold” are equal!”

    Only a leftist can serve shit and insisting it’s ice cream because he says so and its racist to deny it.

  94. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    clot

    Gluteus will conveniently ignore that fact

  95. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Yesterday when I was at the courthouse, I picked up a concealed carry permit app for the wife. I still can’t see her packing but she has come to the realization that this right may be one she wants to preserve.

    It’s like a firearm: Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

  96. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Rory,

    And yet it was the Democratically led government that interred his family.

    I also am old enough to recall that all the same scare tactics were used against Reagan.

  97. Fabius Maximus says:

    Eddie Ray,

    “And yet it was the Democratically led government that interred his family.”

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Are you off meds and just rambling? I have no idea, how you think I brought race into this and who was interred?

  98. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Can someone educate Gluteus about the Japanese internment camps set up by Roosevelt?

  99. xolepa says:

    Comrade,
    I will probably educate you.

    Roosevelt picked it up from the Canadians. They started it all during WWI. Canadian government never addressed it until the last survivor of the camps died.

  100. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Xolepa

    It is irrelevant where Roosevelt got the idea. His administration set them up. Canadians didn’t force US citizens into US camps. Roosevelt was free to reject it; he isn’t bound by, or has duties under a Canadian constitution.

    Though if Rory could rewrite history, he might have.

  101. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    In retrospect, it was unfair of me to assume that Rory knew that much of US history. I just figured that a person as smug and self righteous as he knew all.

  102. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Sadly, the same institution that stood up to the administration in The Prize Cases and Milligan had become an administration rubber stamp by the time of Korematsu and Hirabayashi.

  103. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Xolepa,

    But that is an interesting point and no, I did not know the Canadians interred anyone in WWI. Germans and Turks, I suppose.

  104. Fabius Maximus says:

    Eddie Ray

    I am aware of the history of the camps, what I a struggling with, is the relevance to this conversation.
    Again where did I bring race into this and who got interned?
    I can only assume you are either projecting onto me or more likely, you mistakenly attributed something to me and don’t want to be seen walking it back.

  105. Comrade Nom Deplume, the Deplumiest. says:

    Geez you’re either slow or dishonest.

    No, you didn’t interject race. Stop it. It’s weak and demeaning. Of you, not me.

    I am commenting on the irony of Takei deciding that a candidate for president is a domestic enemy on purely personal grounds when his own family was deemed such.

    Just like the Hollywood liberals who remain incensed about the black balling from the postwar era who respond with…wait for it…black balling.

  106. Fabius Maximus says:

    Eddie Ray

    So I post a list of 42 quotes from different celebs and I’m slow or dishonest because I don’t get an oblique reference to one of them you never named.

    Mkay!
