Actually the mortgage crisis originated from the Clinton administration and the pressure to promote affordable housing. Dodd - Frank was the over regulation result of that, w/ the always unintended consequences of the feel good legislation. Looks like things are heading in the right direction.

First, I wished it had been totally repealed. But even this rollback affects only a small portion of banks. That being said, any rollback of this idiotic law is good in my book. Everytime a client complains to me about something they have to do as a result of Dodd-Frank... I suggest to them they send a note of thanks to Messrs. Dodd and Frank.

Dodd Frank did more to crush the small banks and make the big banks bigger with layers of regulations small banks could not keep up with. Many small banks were bought up by the big banks.  CFPA with the regulations  like TRID and some of the ridiculous things they did to protect the consumer only cost the consumer more money and did nothing to protect them. Appraisal cost rose because of the third party fees so consumer paid more appraiser made less but had more legalities and now we are finding an appraisal shortage because they are tired of dealing with it.  it is just a big bureaucratic red tape mess made up by people who have no clue what they are doing...  there are many more examples of how harmful Dodd Frank and CPFA... too many to name them all...

Considering who's in the White House and how he ran his real estate "empire" I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing, "pick-a-payment" plans, Negative Amortization, "fog a mirror loans" but on a more disturbing level the big picture could be dramatically altered. Hey, the crooks who brought us the big short never got prosecuted, were bailed out and are still in business.

here are the points I see summarized by the MBA

  •  loan officers have 120 days transitional authority to originate when moving  to a non-bank (or across state lines)
  • HVCRE rule, clarifying which acquisition, development or construction (ADC) loans are subject to a higher HVCRE risk weight, and aligns the rule with reasonable and responsible ADC lending practices.
  • Reforms to the VA Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan program to reduce excessively fast prepays which raised FHA/VA rates;
  •  “PACE”  or HERO or Clean energy loans subject to TILA consumer protections; (big fraud in this arena)
  • certain small lenders from HMDA (500 loans per year) less restrictions
  •  eliminate CD re-disclosure and 3 days wait time when rates go down
