Urgent Call to Action for California Residents, Realtors, Mortgage Brokers, Lenders, Bankers and Loan Officers

December 6th, 2007 · No Comments

The California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.) and the National Association of Realtors (N.A.R) Need Your Help to Increase Public Access to FHA and GSE Loan Products!
Contact Senator Boxer Today!


C.A.R. and NAR are SUPPORTING Senate Bill 2338 (Dodd) which, among other things, increases FHA loan limits to 100% of conforming loan limits (current loan limit is $417,000) 

C.A.R. and NAR are also urging the U.S. Senate to introduce and pass legislation, already passed by the House of Representatives in the form of H.R. 1427 (Frank), to reform the Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) — Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac — and dramatically increase the conforming loan limits in high-cost areas (Alaska and Hawaii conforming loan limits are currently above $600,000).

As the mortgage crisis grows deeper, it is crucial that home owners and buyers have access to as many safe and affordable loan products as possible. Passing both Senate Bill 2338 and legislation to increase conforming loan limits in high cost-areas will help tens of thousands of families avoid the pain of foreclosure and remain in their homes and will help new buyers get on the first rung of the home ownership ladder.  


Even if you have already responded to NAR’s Call-for-Action, C.A.R. is asking that you call Senator Barbara Boxer to voice your support for these two measures.

Action Item
