Foreclosures Rise in January; Decline Yearly

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Colin Robins Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago RealtyTrac released its U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for January, 2014. The report noted an 8 percent increase of reported properties from the previous month, citing 124,419 properties in foreclosure filings (default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions). Year-to-year, January, 2014 represented an 18 percent drop from January, 2013.1 out of 1,058 U.S. housing units had a foreclosure filing during the month.The 8 percent increase was the biggest month-to-month increase since May, 2012.January also marked a consecutive streak of 40 months of decline in foreclosure activity by year; however, the decline of 18 percent was the smallest decline since September, 2012.“The monthly increase in January foreclosure activity was somewhat expected after a holiday lull, but the sharp annual increases in some states shows that many states are not completely out of the woods when it comes to cleaning up the wreckage of the housing bust,” said Daren Blomquist, VP at RealtyTrac. “The foreclosure rebound pattern is not only showing up in judicial states like New Jersey, where foreclosure activity reached a 40-month high in January, but also some non-judicial states like California, where foreclosure starts jumped 57 percent from a year ago, following 17 consecutive months of annual decreases.”Foreclosure auctions increased 13 percent in January from the previous month, but were still down 8 percent from a year ago. Bank repossessions (REO) were down 4 percent from December, 2013.REO properties were down 40 percent from January, 2013, and the figure represents the lowest level since July 2007—a 78-month low.Counter to the national trend, January foreclosure starts increased from a year ago in 22 states.States with the highest foreclosure rates in January were Florida, Nevada, Maryland, Illinois, and New Jersey.Among the nation’s 20 most populated metropolitan statistical areas, the highest foreclosure rates were in Miami, Tampa, Chicago, Baltimore, and Riverside-San Bernardino in Southern California.

2017’s Hottest Neighborhoods for Homebuyers

first_img Related Articles  Print This Post There are a number of factors potential homebuyers consider when trying to find the perfect neighborhood for themselves and their family such as being near downtown or being close to a job that allows for high growth according to Redfin’s prediction of the hottest neighborhoods to close out 2017.To determine where buyers are looking the most, Redfin analyzed the page views on Redfin.com, plus what houses were favorited by users. Redfin found that consumers looked for the aforementioned characteristics as well as access to public transit, trendy shopping and dining options, and neighborhoods where homes are quickly gaining value. Redfin real estate agents gave more insight as to where these areas are and why they’re so popular—starting with number one neighborhood First Hill in Seattle Washington.”First Hill is sandwiched between the ever-popular Capitol Hill and the Yesler Terrace redevelopment, with easy access to downtown,” said Seattle Redfin Agent Jessie Culbert. “With Whole Foods opening in 2018 at the Danforth apartment building, the area is becoming even more desirable. Buyers tend to like the more quiet, tree-lined streets in this neighborhood and historic mansions that hearken back to Seattle’s heritage. All we need is more inventory; resales at Luma condos, which sold out in 2016, have been brisk, signaling high demand for new construction.”The median sales price in First Hill is $425,000 with an average sale-to-list price of 105.4 percent and the percenage of homes that sold above listing price coming in at 73 percent. The list provides performance reviews of the 10 neighborhoods Redfin previously predicted would be hot in 2017 and an updated list of the 10 neighborhoods that have been this years hottest so far.”Bushrod, the Oakland neighborhood we said in January would be hot this year, lived up to its hype with off-market home values up 9 percent so far this year, compared with 5 percent growth in the surrounding area,” said Redfin Chief Economist Nela Richardson. “Our analysis also brought to our attention several hot neighborhoods that weren’t on our radar in January, like East Lake Terrace in Atlanta and Gert Town in New Orleans, both of which posted home-value gains that were much stronger than their respective metro areas.”To see the full report, click here. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Share Save About Author: Brianna Gilpin August 21, 2017 1,317 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Hottest Neighborhoods 2017’s Hottest Neighborhoods for Homebuyers Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agocenter_img Hottest Neighborhoods 2017-08-21 Brianna Gilpin Home / Daily Dose / 2017’s Hottest Neighborhoods for Homebuyers Brianna Gilpin, Online Editor for MReport and DS News, is a graduate of Texas A&M University where she received her B.A. in Telecommunication Media Studies.

I strongly share that sense of mission and I am committed to making decisions with objectivity based on the best available evidence in the longstanding tradition of monetary policy efforts.”The choice of Powell as new Fed Chair is a departure in a long tradition of reappointing Fed chairs to a second term since G. William Miller was the Fed Chair in 1979 under President Jimmy Carter. Powell has served as a governor of the nation’s central bank since he was nominated by President Obama in 2012, but much of his career has been in investment banking and private equity. If elected Powell is the first former investment banker to hold the position.A Princeton University graduate, Powell was a lawyer in New York before he joined the investment bank Dillon Reed & Co. in 1984. He stayed there until he joined the Treasury Department in 1990. After he left Treasury, Powell worked as a partner at Carlyle Group, the private equity, and asset management giant, from 1997 to 2005. Powell expressed his thoughts on the normalization of Monetary Policy during his most recent speech in June for the Economic Club of New York. Powell said:”The healthy state of our economy and favorable outlook suggest that the FOMC should continue the process of normalizing monetary policy. The Committee has been patient in raising rates, and that patience has paid dividends.”In addition, Powell largely supports Dodd-Frank, the sweeping set of reforms instituted after the financial crisis to make banks healthier, CNN reports.“The nomination of Jerome Powell is an encouraging signal that the monetary policy that has been successful in stabilizing and maintaining the economy will continue in the near term, said Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado. “Powell’s wealth of diversified experience and deep understanding of our economy will serve him and the nation well in the years to come.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: fed chair HOUSING mortgagecenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Nicole Casperson is the Associate Editor of DS News and MReport.

Delaying the Dream of Homeownership

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Even as they get set to surpass Baby Boomers as the nation’s largest generation, millennials are delaying many of the traditional markers of adulthood, which includes buying a home, according to a study by Apartmentlist.com.The study indicated that despite recent increases, the rate of homeownership among millennials still lags the previous generations at a similar age due to macroeconomic trends that are making it difficult for this generation to take the plunge and buy their own abode.For the study, Apartmentlist surveyed 6,400 millennial renters on their plans for homeownership or buying a condo. It found that while the majority of respondents said that they would like to purchase a home at some point in the future, the number of millennials who were prepared to do so in the near term were “far fewer.”One of the biggest factors in this delay, the study found, was down payment. Forty-eight percent of the respondents surveyed for the study said that they had nothing saved for the down payment. Looking at the future, the study projected that two-thirds of this population would require more than two decades to save a 20 percent down payment based on their current savings rates.” Just 11.1 percent of millennials have saved more than $10,000 for a down payment, while an astounding 48 percent have saved nothing at all,” the study said.The survey for this study had also asked respondents about their ongoing savings rate and found that 43.3 percent were “putting none of their monthly income towards down payment savings.”The larger question, that many millennials were not prepared for was whether the down payment they were saving up for, would be enough, according to the study. It revealed that millennials were likely to need a larger down payment than they thought.Giving the example of San Francisco, which is also “the nation’s priciest market,” the study said that average survey respondents said they would need approximately $99,300 for a down payment to buy in this area. However, the study revealed that an actual down payment of 20 percent here was estimated at $175,180. “We see this trend even in more affordable markets. In Phoenix, for example, a 20 percent down payment on the median-priced condo amounts to $33,400, but our survey respondents in the area expect to need $17,610, on average,” the study said.Click here to read the full study.

Volcker Rule Adjustments Ahead

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Fed. VOlcker 2020-01-30 Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save The Federal Reserve has announced that it will be making changes to the Volcker Rule, and the Fed along with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, and the Securities and Exchange Commission is seeking public comment on the changes proposed to the regulations implementing section 13 of the Bank Holding Company Act (BHC Act).Changes proposed include simplifying and clarifying the operation and compliance requirements of the rule, permitting banking entities to engage in additional fund-related activities, as well as improving and clarifying the treatment of foreign funds.“I am encouraged that the agencies have proposed a rule to improve, streamline, and clarify the ‘covered funds’ portion of the Volcker Rule,” said Sen. Mike Crapo, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs. “These changes are necessary to improve market liquidity and preserve access to diverse sources of capital for businesses.”“As I have said before, the intent behind the Volcker rule is the right one—banks should not use deposits that are insured by taxpayers to make risky proprietary trades or investments in hedge funds and private equity funds,” said Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell. “We now have considerable supervisory experience putting that common sense prohibition into practice, and we have learned that a simpler, clearer approach to implementing the rule makes it easier for both banks and regulators to carry out the intent of the rule. We have already taken several steps in that direction and the proposal before us continues that work.”The agencies will be accepting comments through April 1. Comments can be submitted through the Federal eRulemaking Portal or e-mail, using the title “ProposedRevisions to Prohibitions and Restrictions on Proprietary Trading and Certain Interests in, and Relationships with, Hedge Funds and Private Equity Funds” Related Articles The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Home / Daily Dose / Volcker Rule Adjustments Ahead Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Share 2Save Commentary from Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) said the current crisis presents an opportunity to improve the economy. One of the ways to do so is to change how housing is thought of.The piece was authored by Michael Stegman, a Senior Research Fellow at JCHS, a senior housing policy fellow at the Milken Institute Center for Financial Markets, a Senior Fellow in the Center for Household Financial Stability at the St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank, and a Senior Fellow at the Center for Community Capital at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.Stegman said a house and neighborhoods play a critical role in a household member’s life.“Housing-related issues are responsible for as much as 40% of children’s asthma episodes, and research indicates that moving an asthmatic child from poor-quality housing into a healthier home reduces asthma-related doctor visits by 66%,” he said in the report.   He added that COVID-19 has been a spotlight on the homeless as well as eviction and foreclosures. The report says that the U.S. Department of Education reports there are more than 1.3 million public school students are classified as homeless—2.6% of the total public-school population. This segment has also risen 70% over the past decade.Two members of Congress have put forth proposals to help prevent Americans from losing their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic. House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-California) introduced the Emergency Housing Protections and Relief Act of 2020 to provide financial assistance to struggling homeowners and renters, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) introduced the Protecting Renters from Evictions and Fees Act of 2020.In a statement to the House of Representatives, Waters said the nation was facing an affordable housing crisis even before the pandemic, and now “With so many families struggling as a result of the pandemic, we are now on the precipice of an eviction and homelessness crisis like we’ve never seen in our lifetimes.”Another way to rethink housing is to end exclusionary zoning.“Exclusionary zoning and land use controls continue to block low-income and minority Americans from moving to opportunity-rich neighborhoods and communities by rising construction costs and restricting new supply,” he said.JCHS states that according to one estimate, it is illegal to build anything other than a single-family home on 75% of residential space in many American cities.

Possible Solutions for Borrowers Unable to Make Payments

first_img Possible Solutions for Borrowers Unable to Make Payments Forbearance Loss Mitigation Urban Institute 2020-12-14 Christina Hughes Babb Home / Daily Dose / Possible Solutions for Borrowers Unable to Make Payments  Print This Post Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Market Studies, News Share Save Based on its recent research and panel discussions, the Urban Institute on Friday published “Three Ways to Help 3.2 Million Struggling Homeowners.”The Institute has discovered that while some 3.7 million homeowners, as of November, had resumed mortgage payments and exited forbearance, another 2.8 million remain in forbearance while 369,000 are delinquent on their mortgage payments without the protection of forbearance. Adding to the potential problems, many borrowers who are in forbearance are closing in on the six-month limit and could be forced to exit forbearance unless they reach an agreement with their servicers.”At a recent webinar, Urban Institute researchers presented evidence of a sizable number of households who are delinquent on their mortgage payments without pursuing loss mitigation, a lack of homeowner awareness of repayment options, and stark disparities in housing payment status by race, ethnicity, and income,” the Institute reported.Following the presentation, those researchers identified three priorities for policymakers, mortgage servicers, and financial institutions to help struggling homeowners:1.Reach the 369,000 borrowers who are delinquent but are not in forbearanceOf about 775,000 borrowers who have become delinquent since the outbreak of COVID-19, 299,000 never entered forbearance plans, and 476,000 had a plan but became delinquent after the plan had expired. The Urban Institute has found that some borrowers do not understand or cannot navigate the complexities that sometimes accompany forbearance plan initiation or extensions.The Institute reports that Dana Dillard of Housing Finance Strategies and Lisa Rice of the National Fair Housing Alliance have shown that many households facing multiple issues need help navigating their mortgage options.”These households may be experiencing health issues, struggling with schooling their kids, and stressing about unstable employment. Even if servicers try to communicate and make the process easy for clients, navigating complicated forbearance and repayment options can be challenging.”One useful tool, the UI pointed out, is consumer counseling by HUD-approved advisors.2. Prepare for homeowners to exit forbearance this springThe Institute has discussed myriad ways in which borrowers appear to be confused, and the researchers stressed the need for a better communications plan from the industry.”The 2.8 million homeowners who remain in forbearance are likely to end up in worse financial shape than the 3.5 million who exited forbearance earlier,” the Institute reports. “About 23% of households in forbearance said they did not know whether they will have to make an increased monthly payment or a lump-sum payment to their mortgage servicer once forbearance ends. 54% of households said they have no or slight confidence that they will be able to resume monthly payments when forbearance ends.The National Consumer Law Center’s Diane Thompson said that forbearance and repayment options should be clear and streamlined to avoid confusing servicers and consumers, according to the report. Thompson also emphasized the need for better clarity among government guided systems.3. Address inequalities across race, ethnicity, and incomeData from the Urban Institute show that households of color and those with lower incomes are more likely to fall behind on housing payments.Halting negative credit reporting and strengthening anti-discrimination laws are a couple of the solutions panelists recommended. One researcher suggested a bond that could provide direct funding to those who have been hit hardest by the pandemic. Another proposed providing automatic forbearance for borrowers beyond 60 days delinquent “because early intervention is often more effective in helping households get back on track.”All of the analysts on the panel said that telling human stories backed by the data is critical.”Crises will happen again, and the housing industry cannot reinvent ad hoc responses each time,” concludes the author of the article. “Vulnerable homeowners deserve better policies and systems to enhance their financial resilience to weather COVID-19 and future crises.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Forbearance Loss Mitigation Urban Institute Previous: Rental Investors Take Interest in Tiny Homes Next: How Floods and Wildfires Will Impact 2021 Housing Market The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
