FHA-backed mortgages will be halted in a shutdown | Money – WYFF Home

FHA-backed mortgages will be halted in a shutdown | Money – WYFF Home.

 

The good news is that most government-backed home loans – those purchased and securitized by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – will be unaffected by a shutdown. Those companies pay for their operations out of the fees that they charge lenders.

The bad news is that loans guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration, the Veteran’s Administration and the rural development loans of the United States Department of Agriculture, won’t be processed. If an application for an FHA-insured loan has not been approved by the time of the shutdown, it will have to wait until after the shutdown ends.

FHA-backed loans accounted for 45% of all mortgages used to purchase homes issued in 2012, according to the Federal Reserve. The FHA alone insures about 60,000 loans a month.
