NAR Reflects on Conservatorship of GSEs

On September 5, 2018, NAR issued a press release to reflect on the 10 year anniversary of the Conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Specifically, NAR urged policymakers in Washington to prioritize housing finance reforms that will protect taxpayers, provide liquidity to the broad national market, and promote stability in the housing market, particularly during times of economic distress.

Shortly after the press release was sent out, NAR joined an industry-wide coalition letter asking Congress and the Administration to preserve access and affordability by permanently locking in existing reforms to the secondary mortgage market, while ensuring additional reforms do not harm the market.
