Since there's a Housing Shortage, the Federal Reserve should sell the mortgages that were acquired by Quantatative Easing.

These mortgages should be sold directly to those in dire need such as US taxpayers that need to relocate from places Like Flynt Michigan.

The fed bought mortgage backed securities, not mortgages.

And even if they did buy mortgages they can not just kick out the homeowners who took out the mortgage and give the house to someone else.

There is not a national housing shortage, only in some high growth areas is it a problem.
