Victory for Rural Development

Posted on: 28th Jan, 2014 08:59 am
Late last night, House and Senate negotiators filed a final Farm Bill agreement, which includes the Rural Definition provision from the Senate bill (Section 6208). The House is scheduled to vote on the bill tomorrow. It will likely be voted on by the Senate this week, before heading to the President for his signature.
Section 6208 is a significant victory for Rural Housing organizations and advocates. The provision extends current law through the 2020 Census and increases the population threshold from 25,000 to 35,000. This will help ensure that low-income families--particularly those living in metro counties--will have access to critical USDA resources and programs. In addition, it will provide much-needed certainty to rural housing developers and organizations.

While there is no guarantee this will pass, it is definitely a step in the right direction.
This is a great news for the low income families. It will be of great help to them. However, can you provide us with a link where we can get more information in this regard? The source url that you have provided does not say anything in this regard.

Metropolitan areas to be hit by new FHA limits

Posted on: 27th Jan, 2014 04:12 am
According to a report published by the Urban Institute, the reduced FHA loan limits will have deep impact on the minority borrowers and potential homebuyers in the metropolitan areas. Part of the change is due to a reduction in the loan ceiling for high-value areas, which dropped from $729,750 to $625,000, and changes in the formula to determine loan limits in high-value areas that do not reach the ceiling.
It should also be noted here that a much bigger impact of FHA limits is due to a change in how median home prices are determined. Prior to Jan. 1, 2014, the FHA based its determination of median home prices on pre-2008 home values; under the new formula, home values are based on their highest level since the crash in 2008.

According to a report by the California Association of Realtors (CAR), home sales in California were 5.9% down in 2013 than in 2012. CAR is of the opinion that higher home prices and tight inventories are mainly responsible for the decline in home sales in California.
