INDUSTRY TREND: New Flexibilities on Construction Loans
The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has announced several loan processing flexibilities from Frannie Mae and Freddie Mac to help customers.
We are consciously navigating these challenging times brought to us by the COVID-19. There is a statewide exemption for construction to allow us the continue to work. We are following the highest safety measures set by OSHA and the CDC to keep our associates, clients, and vendors healthy – while maintaining operations as usual and providing you with the highest level of satisfaction.
Looking forward, we do expect is a short-term shortage of building materials from vendors. According to a recent article from the National Association of Home Builders, China is the largest importer of building materials. China accounts for 31% of the total imports of building materials.
That being said, we are working diligently to secure the necessary materials in advance to try and mitigate any setbacks we might face due to these shortages. By making selections as early as possible, we are able to avoid delays by allowing extra time for delivery. In addition, we are working as far ahead as possible on the administration side to avoid delays due to closures or changes in normal business services.
