Home sales declined for the fourth consecutive month with sharp drops in West Coast markets, according to the latest Real-Time Price Tracker from Redfin, a national real estate brokerage. The brokerage reported a 10.3 percent decline in sales across the country year-over-year in February.Only three of 19 markets tracked reported increases in sales over the year—Long Island (3.3 percent), Baltimore (1.9 percent), and Austin (1.9 percent).”The combination of steep price appreciation and rising mortgage rates is likely coming as a shock to many prospective buyers,” Redfin stated in its survey.With the spring selling season about to get underway, the company says March and April should offer insight into buyers’ willingness and ability to adapt to higher prices and mortgage rates—as well as sellers’ ability to price appropriately, a skill some are having to relearn to stay competitive.”This time last year, sellers could name their price and still get 20 to 30 offers,” said Los Angeles-based Redfin agent Eric Tan. “This year, even homes that are priced competitively are only seeing two or three offers come in, often at or below list price.”Home prices rose 13 percent over the year in February, with steep gains in the West Coast markets such as Las Vegas (25 percent); Sacramento (22.2 percent); and Riverside, California (21.7 percent).East Coast markets demonstrated much tamer price gains, according to Redfin. For example, prices were up 2 percent in Long Island, 4.7 percent in Washington D.C., and 6.6 percent in Boston.Housing inventory across Redfin’s 19 markets declined 5.6 percent over the year in February. However, in West Coast markets, where prices rose most, inventory also rose, according to Redfin.Several markets posted double-digit inventory gains over the year in February, including Phoenix (38.5 percent); Sacramento (23.9 percent); Riverside, California (22.8 percent); Ventura, California (22.1 percent); San Diego (18.6 percent); and Los Angeles (17.8 percent).Las Vegas, on the other hand, experienced a 35.3 percent decline in inventory.

FHFA OIG Raises Questions About Risks of Nonbank Servicers

However, these new servicers have less stringent regulatory and financial requirements than traditional banks.OIG concluded that while FHFA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac had each done a good job of responding to specific problems at nonbank servicers, the agency has not established a risk management process or overall oversight framework to handle general risks posed by nonbank special servicers by the very nature of their business model.While not naming names, one such risk specifically cited by the report was the practice of using short term financing to purchase troubled mortgages that will require long term work to resolve their difficulties. The principal reason these mortgages are sold to the nonbank servicers is that they require extra time and money to cure the deficiency. The banks sell them in order to mitigate the loss that comes with servicing them. If short term financing is utilized to acquire the assets, the bill could come due before the profit from acquiring the mortgage is realized.Another risk the report cites is the possibility that nonbank servicers are taking on a portfolio that is larger than their infrastructure is equipped to handle. The OIG notes that the rise in these nonbank servicers has been accompanied by a corresponding rise in consumer complaints, lawsuits, and other regulatory actions.OIG recommended two specific actions for FHFA to take to mitigate the risk. First, the agency should issue guidance to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on the risk management process that should be employed to identify and mitigate risks related to nonperformance under Enterprise contracts with nonbank special servicers.The other step that OIG recommended was for the agency to develop a comprehensive framework to mitigate the risks nonbank special servicers pose to the Enterprises including routine FHFA examinations, Enterprise reviews, and capacity testing before acquisition of servicing rights to ensure these servicers can continue to fulfill their servicing requirements.To accomplish the recommendations, OIG pointed to the 2013 risk management guidance published by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and the Office of the Comptroller of Currency as a possible model.

To contact Pizzolato, email [email protected] Share Save Fannie Mae released its second quarter earnings on Thursday, which boasted industry-high gains. The government-sponsored enterprise reported $3.2 billion in net income, and $3.1 billion in comprehensive income. This sum is approximately $500,000 greater than the recorded income for the first quarter of 2017, which was $2.8 billion.The GSE attributes this increase in income to credit-related revenue, as well as a shift to investment gains as opposed to investment losses Fannie saw in the first quarter. Further, its contribution to the Treasury in the form of dividends amounted to $2.8 billion for the month of June. Through the second quarter of the year, Fannie Mae has paid a total of $162.7 billion to the Treasury in dividends, and expects to pay an additional $3.1 billion in September if the Federal Housing Finance Agency calls in a dividend.Fannie Mae, in addition, provided $135 billion of liquidity to the mortgage industry in an attempt to enable families to buy, refinance, or rent homes, making them the largest provider in the industry.The lender has also made an exceptional business change in the last three months in transitioning from a portfolio-based business to a guaranty-focused business—the latter has accounted for 75 percent of the company’s net income for the first half of 2017. They estimate that that figure will continue to increase through the rest of the year as they work to reduce their retained mortgage portfolio.Fannie Mae continues to contribute to the housing finance system by reducing risk to lenders and making long-term fixed-rate mortgages accessible to people across the country. They pledge to continue to increase their role in credit risk transaction. As of June 30, 2017, they’ve covered nearly $798 billion of unpaid principle balance in single-family mortgages, which accounts for 28 percent of the loans in their guaranty book of business.

Housing’s Place in Economic Growth

Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. Economic activity slowed further in October 2019, according to the new Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI). The index’s 3-month moving average (CFNAI-MA3) fell to –0.31 in October from –0.21 in September.Forecasts ranged from a low of -0.50 to a high of 0.05. The consensus forecast was -0.20.Economic growth, though slow, has been propped up largely by housing, according to the Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group. The Group notes that housing should also continue to function as a positive contributor to growth in the near term, as indicated by both new and existing single-family home sales advancing in Q3, as well as pending home sales, permits, and starts. However, persistent supply and affordability constraints continue to hold back household formation, inhibiting housing market activity.“Even as global uncertainties mount, we continue to expect the domestic economy to produce solid, if not spectacular, growth,” said Fannie Mae SVP and Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “A stronger-than-expected Q3 contributed to the downward revision to our Q4 forecast, as some of the previously expected weakness in trade and inventories appears likely to have been pushed back into this quarter. Still, consumer spending is likely to continue driving the expansion forward, and with the passage of the budget act and a reprieve in trade tensions we’ve revised upward our forecast for full-year 2020 growth. We also continue to expect the Fed to cut interest rates only one more time in the foreseeable future, in early 2020, as a hedge against the sizeable downside risks and to counteract muted inflation.”Meanwhile, international trade tensions are acting as a negative influence on U.S. economic conditions, based on the Federal Reserve’s October meeting minutes.Notably, in the Fed’s minutes of the Oct. 29-30 policy meeting, officials states that “the stance of policy, after a 25 basis point reduction at this meeting, would be well calibrated to support the outlook of moderate growth “well calibrated to support the outlook for moderate growth,” however, they “judged that the risks to the forecast for real GDP growth were tilted to the downside, with a corresponding skew to the upside for the unemployment rate.”“International trade tensions and foreign economic developments seemed more likely to move in directions that could have significant negative effects on the U.S. economy than to resolve more favorably than assumed,” the minutes added Economy 2019-11-25 Seth Welborn Tagged with: Economy Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Eye on Recent Delinquency Rate Increases Next: Where Smaller Mortgage Servicers Dominate Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Postcenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Housing’s Place in Economic Growth in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

Goodman and Zhu expand on the January study, breaking down their data into three sets of state-level rankings, they say, “to show what homeownership will look like in the future and the implications it could have for the housing market.”The overall number of new homeowners will increase by 6.9 million from 2020 to 2040, “with significant variation across states,” they reported.For starters, it is useful to understand the overall regional homeownership rates. West Virginia has the nation’s highest homeownership rate (74.2%), followed by Iowa, Vermont, Maine, Delaware, Wyoming, Minnesota, Idaho, and Michigan. The District of Columbia, New York, and California have the lowest homeownership rates.”Unsurprisingly, the states with the lowest homeownership rates had the most expensive housing. The average cost of a home in the five states with the lowest homeownership rates in 2020 was $525,973 versus $282,290 in the five states with the highest homeownership rates.”Into the future, the number of new homeowners is influenced by the overall number of households and the growth rate of the homeowner population, the authors noted. Thus, larger states see more growth, which lands Texas (the second-largest state with the sixth-highest growth rate) and Florida (the third-largest state with the eighth-highest growth rate) on top, expecting well over a million new homeowners from 2020 to 2040.As for homeowners of color, a demographic that will dominate the overall growth rate (especially Hispanic buyers, as previously reported), the authors ranked the 10 states with the highest homeowner-household increase among people of color.They found that Texas, again at the top, will experience an increase of more than 1.5 million homeowners of color. They report that 67% of the increase will come from Hispanic households, 19% from Asian and other households, and 14% from Black households (“other” households include American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, other Pacific Islanders, and multiracial people).Georgia, at No. 4, will experience a 51.4% growth rate among households of color, with 50% of the increase coming from Black households. Washington and New York will experience a significant increase in Asian and other homeowners. For these two states, 57% of the nonwhite homeowner increases will be from Asian and other families.What this breakdown means for housing nationwide, say Goodman and Zhu, is that a one-size-fits-all policymaking approach is not the best solution.”As federal and state policymakers tackle housing supply, affordability, ownership, and equity, they will need to remember that each state has a different starting point, factors, and trends.”Finally, the researchers touched on the lack of inventory, especially affordable housing, and suggested Urban Institute’s state-level fact sheets, which provide detailed information about future household formation and homeownership trends, are “a great starting point” when it comes to addressing the shortage now and in the future.”Though all states will show considerable growth in the number of homeowners of color, suggesting the need for more affordable housing, states with large increases in the total number of homeowners will face particularly acute housing supply shortages,” they concluded. “Those states will need to ensure zoning, permitting, and land-use processing will enable sufficient affordable housing production to meet the forthcoming demand.” Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles 20 days ago 487 Views 2021-05-10 Christina Hughes Babblast_img read more
