EconomyElliot Eisenberg, Ph.D. is an internationally acclaimed economist and public speaker specializing in making the arcana and minutia of economics fun, relevant and educational. Dr.Eisenberg is the Chief Economist for GraphsandLaughs, LLCHigh Housing Due to rising prices, the maximum size of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac conforming loans is now $726,200, and in high-cost areas a mind-numbing $1,089,300. If the argument is that this boosts affordability, it’s dead wrong! Raising limits allows more people to qualify for a fixed number of houses, and that reduces affordability. Instead, raid Fannie and Freddie and use the money to build more houses, that will increase affordability.
