FHA Loosening Up Condo Loans?

A note from Deborah Goonan and others:

With all the corruption, mismanagement and misdealing by the uncontrolled boards of many condo associations, how can the FHA even dream of easing up borrowing standards to get more condo owners into these federal loans?

Before putting billions more taxpayer dollars at risk, it’s time for the feds to start investigating and solving some of the fundamentals.
