Call to Action

Last month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3700, the Housing Opportunity Through Modernization Act, by a remarkable unanimous vote of 427-0. This important, widely supported legislation will expand housing opportunities for first-time homebuyers and low-income rental housing residents, ease restrictions on existing homeowners and landlords, streamline rural housing programs, and save taxpayers money.

While H.R. 3700 passed the U.S. House unanimously, it has failed to come up for a vote in the U.S. Senate. This legislation provides significant benefits to taxpayers, homebuyers and the real estate market by:

  • Removing a burdensome and expensive FHA Condo approval process
  • Reducing FHA restrictions on the number of condos available to homebuyers
  • Permanently streamlining Rural Housing Service loan processing

In addition to the above relief, H.R. 3700 contains a number of provisions that will ease restrictions on the purchase of condominiums. Today, less than 10% of condominiums nationwide are eligible for purchase with FHA mortgage insurance. This leaves first-time homebuyers, urban dwellers, and seniors wanting to downsize without access to what is often the most affordable homeownership option. H.R. 3700 makes common sense adjustments to these burdensome restrictions, will expand housing opportunities, and will protect taxpayers.

While H.R. 3700 passed the U.S. House 427-0 with NO OBJECTIONS, it has failed to come up for a vote in the U.S. Senate. 

Take Action now, and urge your U.S. Senator to Pass H.R. 3700, and send this important legislation to the President!
