"Lost in all of the hoopla and back patting after the passage of the recent housing bill is an important provision that makes it illegal as of October 1 for sellers to fund the down payment for buyers of their homes by funneling the money through a non-profit third party. These down payment assistance programs (DAP’s) have been a huge support and source of liquidity in the current market. FHA originations are at their highest levels in over a decade an currently 2/3rds of all FHA loans make use of down payment assistance programs to effectively create an FHA 100% financing program."
