DS5: The Tightening of Mortgage Eligibility

DS5: Inside the Industry features an exclusive interview with Eric Kaplan, Director, Milken Institute of Financial Research, Vice-Chair of the Consumer Advisory Board of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. 

Kaplan will delve into how COVID-19 has impacted a potential homeowner's ability to achieve homeownership, as the access to credit has tightened in recent weeks. 

Recently, JPMorgan Chase & Co. tightened its standards last month, requiring borrowers to have minimum credit scores of 700 and to make down payments of 20% of the home price on most mortgages, including refinances if the bank didn’t already manage the loan. Wells Fargo & Co. also increased its minimum credit score to 680 for government loans that it buys from smaller lenders before aggregating them into mortgage bonds.
