Starting Feb. 1, housing regulators will suspend for one year a 90-day waiting period on property resales that it says has put FHA borrowers at a disadvantage in bidding on foreclosed properties.

The waiting period on FHA financing of resales was implemented in 2003 to protect the Federal Housing Administration's mortgage insurance program from the impacts of home flipping.
