The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) released a request for input on a 10 basis point increase to the guarantee fee, or g-fee, for single family lending on June 5. The move comes months after FHFA Director Watt delayed a similar move in January initiated by former Acting Director Ed DeMarco.
While the g-fee increase will not impact multifamily lending activities, NMHC will monitor responses to the input request, which lists 12 questions related to policy, pricing and strategy for mortgage finance. Stakeholder answers to these questions might shed light on the future direction of the debate over multifamily.
