The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Carrie Bay Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago “”RealtyTrac””:http://www.realtytrac.com on Tuesday unveiled “”new site features””:http://www.realtytrac.com/content/videos/navigating-net-equity-and-loan-position-6466 of its online foreclosure marketplace that allow users to see the amount of equity – or negative equity – in a property based on its estimated market value and total outstanding loans, along with a list showing the position of those loans.[IMAGE]The California-based company explained that estimated equity will be available for properties in the foreclosure process, including properties in default and scheduled foreclosure auctions. RealtyTrac says this information will be displayed prominently on each property details page as a dollar[COLUMN_BREAK]amount and as a loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, which represents the total amount of outstanding loans as a percentage of the property’s estimated market value.The equity and LTV will also be listed on search results, and users will be able to sort the search results by amount of equity or create search filters that only return properties within certain equity or LTV ranges.””These new features bring key information to the forefront, helping buyers and investors more quickly decide which distressed properties represent good purchase opportunities for them and which do not,”” said James J. Saccacio, RealtyTrac’s CEO. Saccacio says the new site features will also help real estate agents and brokers pinpoint potential listing opportunities – both short sales and equity sales – and spot second- or third-position loans that could trip up a short sale.””In addition, the position of outstanding loans will make it easier for auction buyers to avoid costly surprises when purchasing at the trustee’s sale or sheriff’s sale,”” Saccacio said. “”In short, these new features represent a giant step forward in terms of convenience and usability for our customers, paving the way for them to find the best foreclosure deals.”” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Senators Propose Homeowner Advocacy Office for HAMP Grievances Next: Lawmakers Clash over Means of Implementing GSE Reform Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Tagged with: Mortgage Debt Negative Equity RealtyTrac The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more

This supports Fannie Mae’s expectation of a broad-based improvement in the housing market.“We hold by our previous comments that income growth still needs to strengthen, particularly for younger households, in order to drive significant housing growth, but we are nonetheless seeing some positive improvements in the housing sector,” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s chief economist.He added, “Home sales have trended up and inventories are lean, supporting strong home price appreciation. That price growth, driven by laggard supply response, helps build equity for existing owners but is a headwind for first-time buyers. Given significant uncertainties from Greece and China, continued global monetary easing, and an expected slow pace of monetary tightening by the Fed, we anticipate mortgage rates to rise only gradually through next year, which should continue to help support mortgage demand.”“While consumer spending growth picked up as we expected in the second quarter of this year, other components disappointed.”Consumer spending in the second quarter was the largest driver of economic growth, contributing two percentage points. While real consumer spending picked up to 2.9 percent annualized in the second quarter from 1.7 percent in the first quarter, as we had anticipated in our July forecast, the monthly trajectory suggests that our expectation of further strengthening in the current quarter may be too optimisticNonfarm payrolls rose 215,000 in July. The increase was comparable to the average monthly gain of 211,000 registered during the first half of 2015. The July total employment count was 2.7 percent above the pre -recession high and, importantly, the number of full -time workers is now just 0.2 percent shy of the previous peak.“While consumer spending growth picked up as we expected in the second quarter of this year, other components disappointed,” Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan said. “However, incoming data suggest some upward revisions may be in the cards for the second quarter. Furthermore, job creation remains steady, with full-time employment getting closer to pre-recession numbers, and household net worth continues its gradual rise. On balance, our full-year growth outlook remains unchanged from the prior forecast at 2.1 percent.”Click here for more on Fannie Mae’s Economic & Research Group or to read the complete August 2015 Economic and Housing Outlook.  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Mortgage Industry Surpasses 24 Million Workout Plans Completed Since 2007 Next: Recent Stock Market Losses Cause Many to Doubt that the Fed Will Raise Rates Consumer Spending Economic Outlook Fannie Mae Housing Market 2015-08-24 Brian Honea August 24, 2015 929 Views Tagged with: Consumer Spending Economic Outlook Fannie Mae Housing Market Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Soft Economic Growth Projected for the Rest of 2015; Housing Data Mixed Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.

Increased access to credit by non-prime consumers, who typically have lower credit limits, drove the decline in average revolving balance at the consumer level. Non-revolving debt at the consumer level also declined by 0.3 percent year-over-year in Q3 down to $113,973 per consumer on average at the end of the quarter.“Consumer credit performance continued to be healthy in the third quarter of 2015. Delinquencies for mortgages continued to drop, while both auto and credit card default rates remained near all-time lows,” said Ezra Becker, VP of research and consulting in TransUnion’s financial services business unit. “Overall balance growth reflects consumer optimism and increased access to credit. Lenders are offering credit to consumers across the risk spectrum, and consumers are using that credit responsibly. We are poised to continue this positive momentum into the holiday season.”The rate of delinquent mortgages, which TransUnion defines as 60 or more days overdue on a monthly mortgage payment, dropped by nearly 30 percent year-over-year in Q3 from 3.36 percent down to 2.40 percent. Q3’s delinquent mortgage rate of 2.40 percent is about 65 percent lower than its peak of 6.94 percent in Q2 2010.“The decline in serious mortgage delinquencies is continuing and even ramping up, with steadily increasing absolute drops over the last year,” said Joe Mellman, VP and head of TransUnion’s mortgage group. “We believe this is due to a combination of factors, including strong performance by recent vintage mortgage loans, improving home prices, and the continued funneling of delinquent accounts through the foreclosure process.”Mortgage delinquencies declined by anywhere from 27 to 30 percent in all age groups, with millennials (1.62 percent) and age 60-plus (1.77 percent) posting the lowest rates. Also, every state experienced a year-over-year decline in mortgage delinquencies; Florida had the largest decline, falling from 6.42 percent in Q3 2014 down to 3.75 percent in Q3 2015.Click here for more insights on TransUnion’s report.

According to the National Association of Realtors’ Existing Home Sales data, about 5.81 million existing homes were sold in that period.November’s existing home sales marked a rise of more than 300,000 for the month, reaching their highest point since December 2006—when sales hit 6.42 million. They’re also up nearly 4 percent since 2016.According to Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist, the uptick was likely due to improving economic factors.“Faster economic growth in recent quarters, the booming stock market, and continuous job gains are fueling substantial demand for buying a home as 2017 comes to an end,” Yun said. “As evidenced by a subdued level of first-time buyers and increased share of cash buyers, move-up buyers with considerable down payments, and those with cash made up a bulk of the sales activity last month. The odds of closing on a home are much better at the upper end of the market, where inventory conditions continue to be markedly better.”The median price on existing homes was also up for November, hitting $248,000—a jump of 5.8 percent since last year and the 69th consecutive month of increases. According to Yun, these rising prices, coupled with increasing mortgage rates, could pose an affordability problem for many buyers come 2018.“The anticipated rise in mortgage rates next year could further cut into affordability if these staggeringly low supply levels persist,” Yun said. “Price appreciation is too fast in a lot of markets right now. The increase in homebuilder optimism must translate to significantly more new construction in 2018 to help ease these acute inventory shortages.”NAR’s data also showed first-time buyers and distressed sales down for the month. Distressed sales accounted for just 4 percent of all sales—a dip from the 6 percent share seen just one year prior. It’s the fourth consecutive month distressed sales have dropped.See all of NAR’s Existing Home Sales data from November at NAR.Realtor/Existing-Home-Sales.

This policy applies to all GSE servicers. “The four-month servicer advance obligation limit for loans in forbearance provides stability and clarity to the $5 trillion Enterprise-backed housing finance market,” said FHFA Director Dr. Mark A. Calabria. “Mortgage servicers can now plan for exactly how long they will need to advance principal and interest payments on loans for which borrowers have not made their monthly payment.”The release states that when a mortgage is in a mortgage-backed security (MBS), Fannie Mae servicers with a scheduled payment are responsible for advancing the principal and interest payment regardless of borrower payments. Freddie Mac servicers are only obligated to advance four months of missed borrower interest payments. Today’s instruction establishes a four-month advance obligation limit for Fannie Mae scheduled servicing for loans and servicers which is consistent with the current policy at Freddie Mac.The FHFA is also instructing the GSEs to maintain loans in COVID-19 forbearance plans in MBS pools for at least the duration of the forbearance plan. Mortgages that are delinquent for more than four months, historically, were purchased out of MBS pools by the GSEs. Loans with COVID-19 payment forbearance shall be treated “like a natural disaster event” and will remain in the MBS pool. The FHFA says this change reduces the potential liquidity demands on the GSEs from loans in forbearance and delinquent loans. David M. Dworkin, President and CEO, National Housing Conference, said the announcement by the FHFA is an “important first step.””Ensuring servicers can move payments to the end of the loan term and get reimbursed in four months is progress,” he said. “But requests by consumers for help in paying their home mortgages are already very high and growing. That is no surprise given the skyrocketing unemployment numbers. As forbearance requests continue to rise, we will have to do more.Dworkin added that the federal government should not hesitate to support the nation’s housing finance system, so mortgage providers can continue helping at-risk homeowners.”Without that support, a deteriorating situation in housing and homeownership will increase the likelihood of a COVID-19 recession becoming a depression,” Dworkin said.A report by Black Knight states that as of April 16, more than 2.9 million homeowners, or 5.5% of all mortgages, have entered into COVID-19 mortgage forbearance plans. This population represents $651 billion in unpaid principal and includes 4.9% of all GSE-backed loans and 7.6% of FHA/VA loans.A new survey by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) found that the number of home loans in forbearance rose from 2.73% to 3.74% during the week of March 30 to April 5.Mortgages backed by Ginnie Mae had the largest weekly growth of 1.58% and the highest overall share in forbearance requests (5.89%).center_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share 1Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Coronavirus FHFA GSEs 2020-04-21 Mike Albanese Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Now FHFA Director Mark Calabria has called on the industry itself for feedback relating to the plan for the future of the GSEs.The FHFA has published its strategic plan for fiscal years 2021-2024, which lays out the Agency’s framework of goals for the next few years. Unsurprisingly, one primary focus is FHFA’s move toward “responsibly” ending Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s conservatorships.You can read the full Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2021-2024  in full by clicking here.In his introduction to the plan, Calabria said that “The goals and milestones laid out in the plan ensure that that FHFA’s supervision is strong, well executed and fulfills all statutory requirements, including ending the conservatorships.”In addition to the GSEs’ obligation to prepare for autonomy, the FHFA must plan for its own “post-conservatorship role as a world-class regulator,” Calabria said.The agency, he said, already has acted on some of the aspirations detailed in the newly published plan. For example it recently created the Office of Equal Opportunity and Fairness.He also applauded the Agency’s capable handling of the COVID-19 crisis.”I am proud of what FHFA has done, working with the regulated entities, to respond to the pandemic,” he said. “Starting even before the national emergency declaration, FHFA had begun taking actions to support borrowers and renters and ensure the proper functioning of the mortgage market.”The plan establishes three strategic goals for the agency, as well as several related objectives within each goal:Strategic Goal 1: Ensure safe and sound regulated entities through world-class supervisionObjective 1.1: Ensure the safety and soundness of the regulated entities through risk-focused supervisionObjective 1.2: Develop and maintain a world-class supervision programObjective 1.3: Responsibly end the conservatorships of the Enterprises Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Position the Agency as a model of operational excellence by strengthening the workforce and infrastructureObjective 3.1: Cultivate a high-performing, diverse, accountable, and engaged workforce.Objective 3.2: Ensure sound governance and good stewardship of Agency resourcesObjective 3.3: Deliver information technology resources and systems that support the Agency’s mission and safeguard the Agency’s resources.
