Meanwhile, the value of directly and indirectly held corporate equities increased $487 billion and home values rose $503 billion.Stocks and pension-fund holdings values increased by $1.07 trillion in the first quarter among Americans and non-profit groups, the Fed report says. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index experienced an increase of 0.4 percent for the first quarter. The index is already up 1.8 percent to begin the second quarter as of yesterday.Household real estate assets increased by $472.5 billion, according to the data. While owners’ equity as a share of total household real estate holdings increased to 55.6 percent last quarter.Americans appear to be keeping borrowing to a minimum and evading debt as the report noted that household borrowing was at its lowest rate since the end of 2013. Household debt increased at an annual rate of 2.2 percent in the first quarter of 2015 totaling $13.6 trillion.Recent mortgage rate and home price increases have many Americans saving the wealth for themselves and being cautious of an ever-changing housing market.In response to the positive Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) employment data released on Monday, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose above four percent this week for the first time since November 2014. Freddie Mac’s Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS), revealed today that the average fixed mortgage rates averaged 4.02 percent for the week ending June 11, 2015.”Mortgage rates rose above 4 percent for the first time since November 2014 as Treasury yields surged,” said Len Kiefer, deputy chief economist at Freddie Mac. “Markets are responding to strong employment data. In May, the U.S. economy added 280,000 jobs. Moreover, job openings surged to 5.4 million in April, up over 20 percent from a year ago.”Last week, CoreLogic, Inc. released its April 2015 Home Price Index (HPI), which showed that home prices nationwide, including distressed sales, increased by 6.8 percent in April 2015 compared with April 2014. Month-to-month home prices also increased by 2.3 percent compared with March 2015.These rises will mark 38 months of consecutive year-over-year increases in home prices nationally, according to the index. Home prices increased by 2.7 percent from last year, and 30 states plus the District of Columbia were at or within 10 percent of their peak prices in April.”Old fashion supply and demand, fueled by historically low mortgage rates and improving consumer finances and confidence, continue to push home prices up,” said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. “We expect continued price appreciation throughout 2015 and into next year. Over the longer term, household formation, up by more than one million over the past year alone, will drive down vacancy rates and create tighter housing markets in many metropolitan areas. This should provide the necessary underpinning for rising prices for the foreseeable future.Click here to view the Federal Reserve’s Statistical Release.

Hearing to Address Fed’s Oversight Splits House

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily September 28, 2016 947 Views Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago A House Financial Services Committee that has been bitterly divided over the Republican majority’s recent efforts to replace the controversial Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act examined the effectiveness of the Federal Reserve’s regulation and supervision of the country’s financial system on Wednesday.One side of the aisle was heavily critical of the Fed’s oversight and the “one size fits all” approach by Dodd-Frank when it comes to regulating the financial industry. They also criticized the Fed for a perceived lack of transparency when it comes to living wills (banks’ plans for easing into bankruptcy without disrupting the financial system) and stress tests (reviews to determine if a bank has enough capital to remain solvent during an economic downturn).The other side of the aisle defended Dodd-Frank and cited the recent Wells Fargo controversy, in which the bank was penalized $185 million for opening 2 million unauthorized credit card accounts, as evidence that more oversight is needed.Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen, the lone witness at Wednesday’s hearing in the Committee, told the Committee that she did not believe in the “one size fits all” approach when it came to regulating banks—and that she believes regulations should be tailored to the size of the banks.“[O]ur post-crisis approach to regulation and supervision is both forward-looking and tailored to the level of risk that firms pose to financial stability and the broader economy,” Yellen said. “Standards for the largest, most complex banking organizations are now significantly more stringent than standards for small and medium-sized banks, which is appropriate given the impact that the failure or distress of those firms could have on the economy. As I have discussed, we anticipate taking additional actions in the near term to further tailor our regulatory and supervisory framework.”Federal Reserve Chairman Janet YellenYellen’s testimony before Congress, which was part of a semiannual hearing on the Fed’s oversight of the financial system, came just a few days after Fed Governor Daniel Tarullo told an audience at Yale University that certain firms with less than $250 billion in assets that do not have significant international or nonbank activity will be exempt from the Fed’s stress testing. Approximately 25 regional banks will be affected by this change.Yellen said on Wednesday that community banks were “significantly healthier” and cited several ways in which the Fed was attempting to reduce the regulator burden for smaller banking institutions, notably with the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act (EGRPRA).The Committee majority was skeptical of this, however.“Where has the Fed’s omnipotence taken us?” Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) said. “The big banks are now bigger, the small banks are fewer, economic growth lags, and there is scant evidence our economy is more stable. . . And despite claims by the Fed that it ‘tailors’ regulations to fit the size of financial institutions, we know small banks are suffering disproportionately under Washington’s thumb. As we lose, on average, one community financial institution per day, consumers lose options to help them achieve financial independence—small businesses lose opportunities to grow jobs and the big banks just keep getting bigger.”The Committee minority took a different view, stating that the recent controversy around Wells Fargo should serve as a reminder of why regulation such as Dodd-Frank is necessary in a post-crisis financial world.“The Dodd-Frank Act has required regulators to increase capital and liquidity standards, reduce interconnection in the financial markets, and more closely scrutinize large financial firms’ risk management. However, there is much work left to be done,” Committee Ranking Member Maxine Waters (D-California) said. “As we have seen from the enormous failure of risk management at Wells Fargo, it’s important to remind the Committee—and the public—why these reforms were necessary in the first place. Fraudulent retail banking practices may not in and of themselves pose systemic risk, but they surely indicate mismanagement that could be catastrophic in riskier and more complex divisions of a bank holding company. Supervisors and law enforcement must continue to hold both institutions and individuals accountable.” About Author: Kendall Baer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles in Daily Dose, Featured, News  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures About Author: Krista F. Brock Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Bolstering its efforts to prevent property tax-related foreclosures, the city of Detroit announced Wednesday it is expanding its Homeowners Property Tax Assistance Program (HPTAP).The main change to the program is that it will now offer a 25% property tax exemption to homeowners within certain income thresholds. Previously, homeowners could qualify for either 50% or 100% property tax exemptions if their incomes were below certain amounts. Now homeowners earning above those amounts can also qualify for some tax assistance.The program previously offered 100% property tax exemptions to families of two earning $22,754 or less. Families of two earning $23,336 or less could qualify for a 50% property tax exemption.Under the updated program, families of two earning $25,703 or less can qualify for a 25% property tax reduction. For a full chart of income eligibility and information on applying for a full or partial property tax exemption, residents can visit the City of Detroit website. The city is now accepting applications.“This year we set out to increase the number of Detroit families assisted through HPTAP, and I am proud of our work in collaboration with Quicken Loans Community Fund, United Community Housing Coalition, and community groups to meet this goal,” said Detroit Chief Financial Officer David Massaron with the announcement of the HPTAP program expansion.Detroit approved 30% more property tax exemptions in 2019 than 2018. The city approved full or partial exemptions for 7,601 homeowners, totaling nearly $5 million in property tax exemptions for the year. The city noted in its announcement that this is close to double the amount approved in 2014.The expansion to the HPTAP also expands eligibility to Detroit’s Pay as You Stay (PYAS) Program, which was passed by the State house of Representatives in December. Through PYAS, homeowners facing foreclosure can obtain affordable payment plans.“Thanks to the help of our great community partners, we have made a lot of progress reducing foreclosures by more than 90 percent and getting more Detroiters to apply for property tax exemptions,” said Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan. “Expanding access to property tax exemptions will help reach more Detroit families that may be struggling to pay their property tax bills and help them avoid possible foreclosure.”Detroit has faced criticism for its practices regarding foreclosures due to delinquent property taxes. In December, DS News reported that one in four Detroit homeowners owes more in overdue property taxes than they did three years ago, according to information reported in The Detroit News.After a Michigan home was foreclosed due to an unpaid property tax bill of $8.41, the Pacific Legal Foundation called on the Michigan Supreme Court to stop a law they said allowed counties to “profit” from foreclosures, according to a DS News article late last year.Quicken Loans stepped in to help Detroit homeowners with the Neighbor to Neighbor initiative funded through the Quicken Loans Community Fund. Quicken reported in May 2019 that it helped 4,316 homeowners avoid foreclosure in 2018. default Detroit tax foreclosure 2020-01-09 Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Detroit Expands Efforts to Prevent Property Tax Instigated Foreclosures Tagged with: default Detroit tax foreclosure Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe Related Articles January 9, 2020 2,382 Views center_img  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Krista Franks Brock is a professional writer and editor who has covered the mortgage banking and default servicing sectors since 2011.

Housing and housing investment has played a major role in economic growth nationwide, according to the latest commentary from the Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR). The Group’s January jobs report featured solid wage growth and better-than-consensus non-farm payroll growth, including in residential construction.On housing, the ESR Group expects low mortgage rates and strong demand to help grow residential fixed investment at a 3.9% annualized pace in 2020, following last year’s contraction of 0.1%. That demand is expected to meet the moderate uptick in inventory predicted for the latter part of the year. Consumer sentiment toward housing is approaching an all-time high, and the lower interest rate environment also appears to have fueled a new surge in mortgage refinance applications in January.While risks remain skewed to the downside and include the potential overvaluation of equity and bond markets and a possible worsening of the coronavirus situation, notable upside risks include a further strengthening of consumer spending and the effects of monetary policy softening domestically and abroad. The ESR Group also maintained its expectation of no further rate cuts from the Federal Reserve in 2020.“The U.S. economy’s resilience, rooted in labor market strength and improved household balance sheets, was on display in January amid greater market uncertainty, including Boeing’s production schedule and the effect of the coronavirus on the global economy,” said Fannie Mae Senior Vice President and Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “However, corporate earnings continue to impress and a jobs report that came in well above consensus helped mitigate some of the growing cynicism. With business fixed investment poised to rebound in the second half of the year, we upgraded our forecast for full-year 2020 headline growth by one-tenth to 2.2%. We also continue to maintain our call that the Fed will leave the federal funds rate unchanged in 2020, despite forward markets’ beginning to price in the increased probability of a rate cut.”Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:Case-Shiller Index (Feb. 25)FHFA Home Price Index (Feb. 25)New Home Sales (Feb. 26)Consumer Sentiment Index (Feb. 28) Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agolast_img read more

Small Town Mortgage Delinquencies are Growing

Many of these cities, MoneyGeek notes, were at or near national delinquency levels in previous years, and have recently increased.“As any real estate agent, mortgage broker or housing economist will tell you, there’s no such thing as a national real estate market,” MoneyGeek says. “Housing economies are intensely local, which explains why some metro areas have outsized numbers of struggling homeowners despite a nationwide economic boom.”At the top of the ranking is East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, with a 90-day mortgage delinquency rate of 2.30%, well above the national rate of 0.84%, despite higher-than-average employment rates and wages in surrounding Monroe County. The average household income of $64,170 in Monroe County is higher than the national average, and the poverty rate of 12.3% is below the national average.“Pennsylvania has 3 MSAs (East Stroudsburg, PA is #1) on our top delinquency list and the #1 entry on our list of MSAs with increasing delinquency rates (Chambersburg-Waynesboro, PA),” MoneyGeek’s Head of Marketing, Doug Milnes, told DS News.Milnes also notes that as Pennsylvania is a swing state in the upcoming election, it is interesting to see how several metros in this state are being left behind. East Stroudsburg, for example, has experienced economic recovery, just not as quickly as some other areas of the country. Meanwhile home values in Monroe County remain below their 2007 peak of $314,580.With the election on its way, Milnes notes that another high delinquency metro, Elkhart-Goshen, Indiana, has been a stopping point for recent Presidents, including Donald Trump and Barack Obama. Elkhart’s LT Delinquency rate has increased by 86% on a year on year basis to just over twice the national average at 1.4%.MoneyGeek also identified the metros where delinquencies are rising. These included Chambersburg-Waynesboro, Pennsylvania and Kingston, New York.

Housing Starts and Permits Post Monthly Decline

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The latest report on new residential construction from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the U.S. Census Bureau found that housing starts dropped in April 2021, hitting 1.57 million units, down 9.5% from March, but is 67.3% above the April 2020 rate of 938,000.”Overall, April’s dip in housing starts isn’t all that surprising given the shortages in lumber and labor that are hitting the country,” said LendingTree’s Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze. “While these issues present a notable challenge, both builder sentiment and demand for new homes remain strong, suggesting the housing market won’t go belly-up anytime soon. It is difficult to say with any certainty what the future will bring for builder confidence. In the coming months, material cost issues, as well as problems related to labor shortages will likely remain the major concerns for builders across the country. While these issues have the potential to hamper builder confidence, if rates remain low and consumer demand for new housing continues to remain strong, builder confidence will probably remain strong as well.”In terms of home sales, Redfin has found that a record $2.53 trillion worth of home sales will transact in America in 2021—a 17% year-over-year gain and the largest annual increase in percentage terms since 2013.Single‐family housing starts in April were at a rate of 1,087,000, 13.4% below the revised March figure of 1,255,000. The April rate for units in buildings with five units or more was 470,000.Low rates and strong demand continue to drive the market, as overall permits increased 0.3% to a 1.76 million unit annualized rate in April, while single-family permits decreased 3.8% to a 1.15 million unit rate. Multifamily permits increased 8.9% to a 611,000 pace. Regionally, permits were 8.4% higher in the Northeast, 9.9% lower in the Midwest, 3.9% higher in the South, and 4.1% lower in the West.“Overall, a soft report reflecting an industry trying to keep pace with demand but facing strong headwinds,” said First American Deputy Chief Economist Odeta Kushi. “For a bright spot, building permits, a leading indicator of future starts, remain strong. The number of single-family homes permitted, but not started increased to 131,000 units–47% higher than a year ago. This means more construction is in the pipeline.”A recent analysis from the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) found that the price of lumber has tripled over the past year, forcing the price of a new single-family home to rise $35,872 on average.“Housing starts and permits posted a monthly decline in April, as escalating prices for lumber and other building materials price out some home buyers from an otherwise hot housing market,” said NAHB Chairman Chuck Fowke. “Policymakers need to prioritize the U.S. supply chain for items like building materials to ensure builders can add the additional inventory the housing market desperately needs.”  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Housing Starts and Permits Post Monthly Decline Home / Daily Dose / Housing Starts and Permits Post Monthly Decline The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Diaz Anselmo & Associates, P.A.
