Out of those, 25,689 were for mortgages with loan-to-value (LTV) ratios between 80 and 105 percent; 7,612 were for loans with 105 to 125 percent LTV, while the remainder were for 125+ percent LTV loans.In addition, FHFA announced it had completed more than three million foreclosure prevention actions, which include loan modifications, short sales, and other programs.Since the government’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2008, more than 18 million mortgages have been refinanced through the GSEs.Last year, FHFA extended the deadline for HARP to December 31, 2015.

Where Can the Middle Class Buy a Home?

For the majority of homes, buying is cheaper than renting. But as home prices rise faster than incomes and mortgage rates slowly head upwards, the question of national affordability becomes ever more germane. Compared to the longer-term past, homeownership still looks relatively affordable as home prices remain undervalued and mortgage rates remain near historic lows. However, affordability for the middle class in some areas of the nation is becoming problematic.In a blog post, Trulia’s Jed Kolko notes that certain discrepancies do arise, specifically along the coasts, for middle class homeownership. Kolko explains his methodology of defining what counts as middle-class, and what counts as affordable before breaking down nationwide trends.Affordability is based on whether a home’s monthly payment, which includes mortgage, insurance, and property taxes, was less than 31 percent of the surrounding metro’s median household income. The designation “middle class” is fluid, dependent upon each metro’s local median household income.Kolko found that the middle class is getting priced out of California, but finds more success in the Midwest. In 80 of the 100 largest U.S. metros, most of the homes for sale are within reach of the middle class.In the most affordable housing markets, more than 80 percent of homes are within reach. Akron, Ohio tops the list at 86 percent of homes affordable for the middle class. “The 10 most affordable markets include eight in (or near) the Midwest, plus the southern markets of Columbia, South Carolina, and Little Rock, Arkansas. Five of the top 10 are in Ohio,” Kolko writes.Indeed, the top three metros for affordability include Akron, Toledo, and Dayton, Ohio, each sporting percentages above 80 percent of homes as affordable for the middle class in May 2014.Seven of the 10 least affordable markets reside in California. Not surprisingly, the rest of the top ten is rounded out by New York City, Fairfield County, Connecticut; and Honolulu, Hawaii. San Francisco remains on top as the least affordable city in the nation, with only 14 percent of homes for sale in San Francisco affordable to the middle class, despite higher median incomes.Education also plays a factor, affecting income which in turn directly reflects one’s ability to afford a home.”Household income is strongly correlated with education. Median household income is $33,500 for households headed by someone with a high school degree or less, $49,300 with some college or an associate’s degree, $77,500 with a bachelor’s degree, and $100,000 with a graduate degree,” Kolko commented.He notes that the higher the education of a metro’s population, the more homes will be available for purchase with a median income: “Take the Washington, D.C., metro area as an example: for a high-school-or-less household, just 23% of homes for sale are affordable, compared with 75% for a bachelor’s-degree household and 83% for a graduate-degree household.”Furthermore, the supply of available homes matters, with lower affordability markets experiencing a low supply from a lack of new construction, driving prices upward and out of the range of middle class families. For America’s most expensive markets to come down in price, there would have to be a subsequent drop in demand or an increase in construction. Cities like San Francisco, south Florida, and parts of the Northeast are geographically limited by their availability to construct new homes, and thus, are inherently limited in their ability to construct new homes, according to Kolko.Unfortunately, his conclusions aren’t exactly great news for the middle class family looking to purchase a home in more expensive markets. “In all, today’s unaffordable markets are likely to stay unaffordable. A collapse in demand is nothing to wish for; geographic constraints are nearly impossible to change; and strong political forces make building regulations difficult to relax,” he writes. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Previous: 5 of 6 Banks Meet Mortgage Settlement Expectations Next: Johnson-Crapo Bill Clears Senate Banking Committeecenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Related Articles Home Ownership Housing Affordability Middle-class Trulia 2014-05-15 Colin Robins  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Colin Robins is the online editor for DSNews.com.

Housing Market Gets a Vote of Confidence from Builders

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago January 17, 2018 1,687 Views The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago builders Buyers Confidence Homes HOUSING market Sales tax bill 2018-01-17 Staff Writer Subscribe  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago After reaching an 18-year high of 74 points in December, builder confidence for newly built single-family homes dropped slightly in January to 72 on the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) / Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI). Despite this fall, builders remain confident about the year ahead as demand for housing rises along with an overall strong economy. “Builders are confident that changes to the tax code will promote the small business sector and boost broader economic growth,” said Randy Noel, Chairman of NAHB, on the overall confidence of NAHB members in the housing market.The monthly HMI index gauges builder perceptions of current single-family home sales and sales expectations for the next six months on a scale of good, fair, or poor. The survey also asks NAHB members to rate traffic of prospective buyers. Scores for each component are then used to calculate a seasonally adjusted index where any number over 50 indicates that more builders view conditions as good rather than poor.The three HMI components posted minor losses in January with the index measuring buyer traffic falling four points to 54, the component charting current sales conditions dropping one point to 79, and the component gauging sales expectations for the next six months falling a point to 78.“The HMI gauge for future sales expectations has remained in the 70s, a sign that housing demand should continue to grow in 2018. As the overall economy strengthens, owner-occupied household formation increases, and supply of existing home inventories tightens, we can expect the single-family housing market to make further gains this year,” said Robert Dietz, Chief Economist at NAHB.Looking at the three-month moving averages for regional HMI scores, the Western region rose two points to 81, the South increased one point to 73, the Midwest rose a single point to 70, and the Northeast climbed five points to 59.

The Millennial Tracker “mines data from a robust sampling of approximately 80 percent of all closed mortgages dating back to 2014 that were initiated on Ellie Mae’s Encompass all-in-one mortgage management solution.” For Ellie Mae’s purposes, millennials are defined as “applicants born between the years 1980 and 1999.”The previous installment of the Ellie Mae Millennial Tracker revealed that 67 percent of closed loans secured by millennials were conventional loans, the highest percentage in two years for conventional mortgages among that group. While Tracker data showed that women were more likely to utilize FHA loans, conventional loans were still the most popular. Joe Tyrell, EVP of Corporate Strategy for Ellie Mae, said FHA loans have accounted for less than 30 percent of total millennial loans in the in the past two months.“We view this as an indication that more millennials are qualifying for conventional mortgages,” said Tyrell.Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead.Construction Spending Report, Monday, 10 a.m. ESTCoreLogic Home Price Insights Report, TuesdayMBA Mortgage Applications Report, Wednesday, 7 a.m. ESTFed Balance Sheet, Thursday, 4.30 p.m. ESTCensus Bureau Jobs Report, Friday, 8.30 a.m. ESTConsumer Credit Report, Friday, 3 p.m. EST Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: David Whartoncenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post April 1, 2018 2,952 Views The Week Ahead: A Focus on Millennial Housing Trends Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

Predictions for the 2019 Housing Market

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Redfin’s Chief Economist, Daryl Fairweather, predicts the housing market will continue to cool into the first half of 2019. Among the seven predictions for the year ahead, Redfin forecasts a rise in homeownership rates and rise in inventory to be back at 2017 levels. Price hikes will record the lowest numbers since 2014. Speaking of investors and house-flippers, Fairweather expects them to back away from the market. She noted that real estate companies that buy homes from consumers to quickly sell at a profit are likely to face challenges as the market cools. Local housing issues will have tech companies and local governments continue to “go head to head,” she said. Redfin’s 2019 predictions anticipate price growth to stay around 3 percent in the first half of the new year, a drop from the 7 percent recorded around the same period last year. Though a booming economy and increased access to credit will drive homebuyer demand, higher interest rates will make homeownership an expensive affair for many—creating doubts about the rebound of home sales next year, the report said.According to the report, more inventory and less competition will be key features of the market of 2019. Homeownership has been consistently growing from its post-recession valley of 63 percent in 2016 to above 64 percent this year. It pointed out that an increase in mortgage-rate to 5.5 percent by the end of 2019 would mean about a $100 increase in monthly mortgage payments on a $300,000 home.The heat of rising rates will affect lenders as their costs of lending will lead to flattened demand for services—compelling lenders to reach out to low-income borrowers and first-time homebuyers, Fairweather wrote. Redfin also predicts fewer homes to be built and an uptick in starter homes that are easier to sell than luxury homes. The per-unit values of building permits will also decline in 2019. Low unemployment is projected to increase the wages for low-income workers, impacting both demand and supply and demand for housing, the report indicated. Institutional buyers will face their first serious test wherein buyers who made money from nearly every sale in a rising market with low-interest rates could start to face losses if homebuying demand falters on account of higher interest rates and stock-market volatility, the report stated.

Navigating Loss Mitigation in a Low-Default Landscape

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Denis Brosnan is President and CEO of DIMONT, a provider of technology-enabled solutions in specialty insurance claims processing and collateral loss mitigation management for mortgage and auto lenders, servicers, and investors.A leader with deep experience guiding technology and technology-enabled service providers through various lifecycle phases, Brosnan spoke with DS News about 2019’s challenges and lessons, from updates in technology to fluctuations in default volume.What industry challenges and trends have defined 2019 from your perspective?For most servicers and vendors in the default space, the volumes continue to be the biggest challenge. The implications of historically low volumes are that most servicers are trying to cut costs. Most service providers are trying to do more with less. There has been a lot of consolidation in the industry as portfolios have moved from one servicer to the next. For most businesses, that’s a challenge.How does the auto finance market compare to the mortgage business? Are there lessons you can carry over into the mortgage space?There’s commonality. It was challenging early on to branch into a different market segment, but many of the ways you go about doing business and building relationships are analogous. We got into that space (specifically repo claims) because in our core business in mortgage and hazard insurance claims there’s an analogous situation: we’re recovering insurance claims from distressed or damaged collateral. The challenge that we didn’t understand going into the auto space was just how fractured and fragmented the data environment is for insurance information.What are some of the challenges that you are encountering with FHA loans?FHA, from an investor claim standpoint, continues to be one of the biggest challenges in the marketplace. The process is long, convoluted, arduous, and fraught with errors and technology deficiencies. If you make a mistake, it becomes expensive quickly. Obviously you can audit the servicer and say, okay, you’ve made this error a few times and now we’re going to just assume that you’re making that across your portfolio, assess a big penalty, and all that. We spent an awful lot of time analyzing what it takes to really get a property into conveyance condition and looking at gaps in the process and ways we can help fill those gaps.We’ve identified many areas where it’s not necessarily somebody’s fault: it’s just a lack of coordination, a lack of communication, and systems that don’t talk to each other. We’re in a unique position to be able to plug many of those gaps because we’re good at the collateral; we’re good at data and moving data between systems and we’re good at investor claims. We know what the file needs to look like in order to be successful in the claim.How can the industry address inefficiencies in the hazard and investor claims management process?It comes back to communication and coordination. So many times, we find that the components within the servicing shop that are responsible for, say, property preservation are not communicating effectively with the folks that are responsible for the investor claims process, and may not even be in the same location half the time. Sometimes there are policies that haven’t been looked at for a long time.In many cases, we find ourselves in the hazard side pursuing claims that maybe are not really worth it for the bank to pursue. They’re not big enough in potential recovery size and the additional time that it adds to the process doesn’t make it worth while. They should just go ahead and advance that and get the repairs done themselves. Many times in our working with servicers, we actually print these huge architectural diagrams on blotters at FedEx, have the guys come into our shop, and we’ll show them: this is the hazard process. This is the investor claims process. They’re up on the wall. We take out colored pencils and we show where our process is and where we think those bottlenecks are with them.How has the nature of interacting with legacy systems changed?It always comes down to the people. We interact with legacy systems all day, every day, to the point where we just assume that we’re going to have that. Systems access is always an issue. Moving data is always an issue. It’s frustrating that you have to work through that, but sitting down and having real business conversations with the servicer or with the other parties, setting expectations that are realistic, that is the biggest thing you can do.
