Lenders react to end of Freddie Mac 1% down payment mortgage offerings

The move shut the door on what was becoming a fast-growing mortgage lending option for first-time borrowers due to its appeal to borrowers who struggle to overcome one of the biggest barriers to homeownership: the down payment.

Fannie Mae  and  Freddie Mac  first introduced 3% down payment options back in 2014, getting the industry comfortable once again with low down options after they disappeared after the financial crisis.

It didn’t take long for some of the nation’s biggest mortgage lenders to jump on board, including  Bank of America Wells Fargo  and  JPMorgan Chase .

And by 2015, the industry took the idea a step further and started to roll out 1% down and eventually no down mortgages by working with Freddie on its 3% down program, also known as the Home Possible Advantage program .

Quicken Loans  led the pack, with a 1% down mortgage that launched in  late 2015 .

Freddie Mac: Bright Future Ahead

Freddie Mac remains optimistic at the future of the housing market, despite dwindling inventory, rising home prices, and increased interest rates that would otherwise point the other way, according to their Outlook Report for the month of July.

The report examines inventory shortages and the fall of residential construction, which has dropped 14 percent since year-end 2016, further deepening the inventory shortage. Although, Freddie notes that the lack of housing starts is not because there isn’t a market for it, or due to regulations or land costs, but rather rising costs of building materials and a shortage of skilled laborers. The number of skilled laborers returning to the workforce has still not hit its post-recession numbers, mostly due to increased enforcement of immigration laws and problems with coaxing millennials into the construction industry.

It also notes that the number of open construction jobs has remained on the rise since the lowest point of the recession, and that as of May, total open construction jobs numbered around 154,000.  They still, however, expect the year-end housing starts to fall around 1.27 million.
