"Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac play a pivotal role in the housing industry," said NAMB President Marc Savitt, CRMS. "NAMB applauds the action taken by Secretary Paulson and Director Lockhart." "This is a clear signal to consumers and Wall Street that stability is returning to the secondary mortgage market," stated Savitt. "Stability breeds confidence, which is the main ingredient needed to turn the slumping housing market around." "These measures will allow for the return of affordable mortgage financing, which will renew the dream of homeownership for consumers," continued Savitt.
