CBS evening News FHA pulls the plug on some lenders but is it too late?

There was an in-depth report tonight on the CBS evening news.

The topic was FHA loans and the fact that 8.5 % of them are in foreclosure or are more than at least 90 days delinquent.  The story went on to say that FHA has been proping up the housing market.

  • The FHA has been insuring half of all new mortgages since 2007. 
  • FHA has loans out currently worth 696 Billion


  • The lenders shown in the story were :
  • Great Country Mortgage Bankers
  • Madison home equities
  • TB & W 
  • These were all lenders that have been said to be problem lenders that have had their plugs pulled  from FHA and are no longer able to write FHA loans.


  • The story also went on to talk about federal prosecutors are suing one of the fastest growing lenders Lend America. It was said the company made up and invented borowers incomes and  information to close loans.

 A former investigator for the Department of Housing and urban dev. called it FHA insurance armageddon.

He says in the next 18 months there is going to be a major hit to the FHA insurance fund. Projected losses released by FHA for the future could leave it with 4 billion dollars in total which is less than the 2 % required by congress to keep in the fund at any time.


Number of FHA loans on the books

2007 = 425,000 loans

2008 = 1.2 million loans

2009 = 1.8 million loans


Fewer than 200 staff members at FHA to handle all of these loans and do checks on the lenders using FHA money and audit loan applications.
