The United States housing and economic recovery act of 2021 was primarily designed to address the sub-prime mortgage meltdown that occurred during the previous year. Since the crisis began, many people lost their homes and had to be on the road looking for a new one. Many people became frustrated with the slow progress of the government and the banks in sorting out the mess. Because of these factors, many homeowners who couldn't afford their mortgages before the crisis began to find themselves homeless. With the help of this act, these people can once again become a part of the American dream.
When this happened, many people lost trust in the system, which resulted in the election of an outsider as President-elect Obama. Even though many Americans agreed with his platform of change, many were still not sure if he was really one of them. This lead to some backlash towards the Obama campaign after one of his campaign events, and he gave a speech in which he mentioned the need for housing reform. After this, an official inquiry was opened into whether or not there was a connection between his comments and the housing market crash. The housing and economic recovery act came to light and the audit was launched. Although many in Congress criticized the probe, it was still passed.
Many economists are skeptical of how well the housing market will rebound since there hasn't been any major legislation passed concerning it in quite some time. There was a little bit of relief for the housing industry by passing the Strategic Growth Act, which allows lenders to provide incentives for those wishing to buy or construct low and affordable housing. However, it seems that housing prices have already begun to rebound and some areas of the country are feeling the effects. As President-elect Obama begins to shape the direction the country will take, many are optimistic about the future of the economy. In fact, many economists believe that the act is a good first step towards bringing back consumer confidence in the economy.
Housing and economic recovery will most certainly play a large role in the direction that the country takes. With so much uncertainty, many citizens are looking for reassurance that things will not change drastically. With the stimulus package in place, now is a great time to purchase a home, invest in a business, or just own property in general. Although the act may not solve every problem, it certainly has established the need for further action.
It is also important to remember that the housing market is only one part of the economy and the overall health of the American economy. In addition to housing prices, the overall health of the American economy rests on the ability of its consumers to get out of debt and to spend money. As the subprime crisis shows no signs of abating, the concern among many Americans is whether or not the economy is getting ready to take care of itself. If it is not, then the ramifications of the subprime crisis could last a long time to come. As consumers struggle to pay off their debts, companies who provide mortgage loans will also suffer, resulting in less money for everyone.
The Housing and Economic Recovery Act was created by President Bush in reaction to the subprime crisis and was signed into law by Bush in February 2021. The Act allows the Federal Housing Administration to insure loans insured under . . . . . . the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act. It also encourages lenders to help homeowners who have been adversely affected by the subprime mess, so that they can remain in their homes. Since the act was enacted, many people have found that their housing loans have been restructured, and many others have bought new homes at a lower cost to them.
