How Swedes And Norwegians Broke The Power Of The ‘1 Percent’ Resources. Commentary - Pagitsas, January 2012. The nation’s stock of affordable multifamily housing is aging.

Commentary - Pagitsas, January 2012

Half of all multifamily properties are now more than 30 years old. More than one property in 10 was built before 1940. At that age, properties will require small to significant investments to preserve the quality of the property and to keep them affordable for owners to operate and tenants to rent. At the same time, property owners and tenants alike are facing rising utility rates, resulting in higher costs to heat, cool, and provide water to common areas and units.

In an effort to encourage better management of energy costs and consumption, cities and states in the U.S. have enacted or are proposing laws requiring property owners to track and report energy consumption and associated costs to the locality or to prospective tenants. Fannie Mae launched our Multifamily Green Initiative to tackle these and other sustainability challenges.

Freddie Mac Bets Against American Homeowners. Freddie began increasing these bets dramatically in late 2010, the same time that the company was making it harder for homeowners to get out of such high-interest mortgages. No evidence has emerged that these decisions were coordinated. The company is a key gatekeeper for home loans but says its traders are “walled off” from the officials who have restricted homeowners from taking advantage of historically low interest rates by imposing higher fees and new rules. Freddie’s charter calls for the company to make home loans more accessible.

Its chief executive, Charles Haldeman Jr., recently told Congress that his company is “helping financially strapped families reduce their mortgage costs through refinancing their mortgages.” Is Freddie Mac Betting Against Homeowners? iKitchen – DIY Touch Screen Wall-Mount Computer.
