The future of the U.S. mortgage industry is dependent upon the successful resolution of the GSEs’ conservatorship. This conservatorship was initiated over a decade ago in response to the 2008 financial crisis, and the time has come for this situation to be rectified. David Stevens emphasizes the importance of taking the necessary steps to quickly release the GSEs from this conservatorship.
The urgency of the situation is based on the fact that there are a number of risks associated with the current situation. If the GSEs remain in conservatorship for too long, it could be damaging to the overall durability of the U.S. housing industry. In addition, the lack of liquidity and availability of capital could stunt the return to profitability for the companies, which in turn could prevent them from playing their vital role in the mortgage industry.
