FHA foreclosure properties

As it is known the United States of America experienced the Great Depression in 1929-1933. The years of crisis will be always remembered with decreasing income, deflation, unemployment, the foreclosure markets also suffered from that crisis.

During the crisis the US government got an idea to create the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), officially it was created in 1934. The main objectives of government of USA in these circumstances are clear. First and foremost it was required to fix the situation with problem loans; secondly Federal Housing Administration was obliged to contribute into the evolution of real estate markets. And thirdly the foreclosure market of the USA required new ideas.

The housing project for World War II veterans was sponsored namely by Federal Housing Administration. It should be stressed that Federal Housing Administration preserved the average prices on real estate markets during 1970-1980, the years of economic recession. Today FHA acts as one of the world most powerful mortgage insurers. Although FHA is functioning in form of governmental agency it finances its projects only with FHA own money.

Due to this fact FHA became a unique government organization just until Housing Urban Development (HUD) requested for assistance of taxpayers. It happened due to FHA budget deficit, so that financial aid from US government became the single possible solution. In order to work with high risk clients and to promote its performance in reaching main goals of agency, FHA developed some special programs, as an example we can name the FHA Secure program. The aim of this program is to to provide their clients with opportunity to input money into FHA insured mortgages because of relatively low mortgage rates. The described Secure program results from the failure of FHA average client to purchase the private insurance policy and to cover the average mortgage rate.

Additionally Federal Housing Administration works only with such borrowers who were qualified by US Government. Couple of years ago the Recovery and Reinvestment Act was signed, according to it 2008 Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and FHA debts limits had been reinstated.
