Federal officials studying how to protect housing market

Federal officials took two steps Tuesday to attempt to reduce the likelihood of a second financial crisis caused in large part by large declines in the housing market.

The first would try to tackle the problem of foreclosures. The Federal Housing Finance Agency, which oversees the massive mortgage finance companies Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, said it would consider a new approach to how home loans are managed by banks. Critics say the current system makes it more lucrative for a bank to foreclose than to find ways to modify loans to allow struggling borrowers to stay in their homes.


Sharga Says U.S. Housing Prices May Bottom in 2011
Jan. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Rick Sharga, senior vice president at RealtyTrac Inc., discusses the outlook for the U.S. housing market and home foreclosure filings. The number of U.S. homes receiving a foreclosure filing will climb about 20 percent in 2011, reaching a peak for the housing crisis, as unemployment remains high and banks resume seizures after a slowdown, according to RealtyTrac. Sharga speaks with Mark Crumpton on Bloomberg Television's "Bottom Line." (Source: Bloomberg) (Bloomberg)
