Guarantee Fees

NAR is concerned with the high G-fees charged by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which have translated into huge profits for the entities, but high prices for consumers. NAR supports reasonableness when setting G-fees to avoid over charging tax-paying homeowners and a specific reduction in light of recent tax legislation.
