This was by far the largest month-over-month increase of any state from September to October; Missouri was second with 181 percent, RealtyTrac reported. The national average increase in foreclosure filings for October was 15 percent, the highest monthly increase since March 2010.Year-over-year, foreclosure filings increased in Arkansas by 37.9 percent in October, according to RealtyTrac.With a population of close to 2.9 million and slightly more than 1.3 million residential housing units, Arkansas totaled one foreclosure filing for every 1,749 housing units, which ranked the state 28th in the nation, according to RealtyTrac. For October, .06 percent of all housing units in Arkansas were in some state of foreclosure.In all, Arkansas totaled 753 foreclosure filings in October, which was more than four times the total that was reported for the state in September (147). In October 2013, Arkansas reported having 546 foreclosure filings. Even with the enormous increase, Arkansas’ 753 foreclosure filings in October still accounted for less than 1 percent of the nation’s total for the month, which was 123, 109.The increase in Arkansas foreclosure filings can be attributed to a spike in the number of notices of trustee sales, which rose from 58 in September to 631 in October, according to RealtyTrac. The number of REOs in Arkansas also jumped month-over-month in October from 89 to 122.Louisiana (127 percent) and District of Columbia (108 percent) also had triple-digit month-over-month increases in foreclosure filings in October, according to RealtyTrac. District of Columbia had the largest year-over-year increase in foreclosure filings in October at 355 percent, from 11 in October 2013 up to 50 in October 2014.

House, Senate Democrats Introduce Bill To Provide Regulatory Relief, Consumer Protection

first_img Democratic Members on the Senate Banking and House Financial Services Committees announced in a press release that new legislation will provide targeted relief to small financial institutions and protection for consumers. This legislation was introduced in both the House of Representatives and the United States Senate and has the unanimous support of Democratic Members of the respective committees.Ranking Members Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Representative Maxine Waters (D-California) of the Senate and House Committees, respectively, joined Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) and Representative John Carney (D-Delaware) announced the introduction of this new legislation.“There is no reason why Democrats and Republicans can’t pass targeted legislation today that would give community lenders relief and be signed into law,” Brown said. “Main Street financial institutions shouldn’t be held hostage to an ideological attack on the Wall Street reform law.”This new measure titled “Community Lender Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act of 2015,” will provide community banks and credit unions with relief without putting consumers and the economy in harm’s way, the financial committee reported.The House of Representatives has already passed the many provisions of this new rule with bipartisan support, the Democrats noted. In addition to relief for Main Street financial institutions, the measure also includes a number of key provisions to increase consumer protections for service members and renters.“Our unity behind this legislation is an unequivocal statement of Democratic support for small banks and credit unions, which are on the front lines of lending in our communities,” said Waters. “This measure represents a compromise that takes all perspectives into account, by providing targeted relief to real Main Street institutions while increasing protections for servicemembers and vulnerable communities. Our approach is in stark contrast to House and Senate Republicans, who have used the concerns of community banks to push dramatic changes to Dodd-Frank.”New legislation will also allow banks and credit unions that have less than $10 billion in assets relief from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Qualified Mortgage rule, the committee members said. This will exempt certain loans from its requirements as long as these intuitions do not sell or securitize those loans.“We’re introducing a common sense bill that can actually pass the Senate, House, and be signed into law,” Heitkamp said. “We need solid, realistic reforms that support community banks and credit unions so they can help families, businesses, and farmers gets access to loans and capital, and that’s what this bill accomplishes. It’s telling that every Democrat on both committees supports this bill–we come from varying degrees of the political spectrum—as it was through compromise and open dialogue that we were able to reach an agreement.”In addition, the new rule would also protect consumers with a new method by giving the CFPB supervision and enforcement authority over a number of consumer protection provisions of the Service Member Civil Relief Act, according to the new legislation. The measure would also make permanent expired provisions to protect tenants from eviction when their landlord or property owner has entered foreclosure.“This bill will go a long way toward ensuring access to credit and enabling community banks to better serve their customers while retaining and strengthening core consumer protections,” Carney said. “Dodd Frank made a lot of important changes to our banking system, but there’s more work to do. Our legislation fine-tunes Dodd Frank so it works as intended.”Click here to view the Community Lender Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act of 2015.  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: House Financial Services Committee Main Street Regulatory Relief Senate Banking Committee Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.

Housing Outlook Stays Positive Despite Predicted Moderate Economic Expansion

first_img Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Housing Outlook Stays Positive Despite Predicted Moderate Economic Expansion Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Conference Board’s Leading Economic Index (LEI) declined by two basis points in its latest reading after holding steady in both July and August, but analysts predict that economic growth will still continue but at a moderate pace.The LEI, a measure of economic developments as an indicator of future trends that tracks a handful of component indicators, including labor market conditions, housing construction activity, and credit conditions, read at 123.3 (2010=100) for September. That reading represented a decline of 0.2 percent after holding steady in both July and August. Still, Ataman Ozyildirim, Director of Business Cycles and Growth Research at The Conference Board, said he expected economic expansion to continue, but at a moderate pace.“The recent weakness in stock markets, the manufacturing sector and housing permits was offset by gains in financial indicators, and to a lesser extent improvements in consumer expectations and initial claims for unemployment insurance,” Ozyildirim said. “The U.S. economy is on track for moderate growth of about 2.5 percent in the coming quarters, despite the mixed global economic landscape.”“Along with the good outlook for jobs and household incomes that should be positive for the availability and affordability of housing.”—Ataman OzyildirimThe predicted moderate economic expansion does not change the Conference Board’s outlook for housing, which is largely positive. Ozyildirim told DS News earlier in the week that, “The single family housing market seems to be heating up, despite some potential volatility. Construction companies and workers are busy while home prices and mortgage rates remain favorable.”On Thursday, Freddie Mac announced a decline of 3 basis points for 30-year fixed mortgage rates down to 3.79 percent. Also on Thursday, the National Association of Realtors reported that existing-home sales for September had rebounded from August’s decline and have now increased year-over-year for 12 consecutive months.“That moderate (economic growth) probably means that the interest rates will not pick up significantly soon,” Ozyildirim said. “Along with the good outlook for jobs and household incomes that should be positive for the availability and affordability of housing.”The LEI report for October comes a month after the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ third estimate for GDP growth for Q2, which exceeded all expectations with reports of 3.9 percent GDP growth. The rate of growth for Q1 was only 0.6 percent.

The Evolution of Housing Wealth

She is a graduate of the University of Pune, India, where she received her B.A. in Commerce with a concentration in Accounting and Marketing and an M.A. in Mass Communication. Upon completion of her masters degree, Ojha worked at a national English daily publication in India (The Indian Express) where she was a staff writer in the cultural and arts features section. Ojha, also worked as Principal Correspondent at HT Media Ltd and at Honeywell as an executive in corporate communications. She and her husband currently reside in Houston, Texas. Household debt is on the rise driven by increased mortgage balances, but it’s slower this time as mortgage debt continues to remain relatively flat according to the latest research by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York that was released on Thursday. Titled “The Home Prices, Housing Wealth and Home Equity Extraction” the report focused on the evolution of housing wealth, its use as a collateral and its long-term implications for this housing cycle. The report indicated that debt balances had increased $63 billion during the quarter driven by increased mortgage balances that grew $57 billion. Breaking up the household debt, the report revealed that though auto and student debt rose during the period, credit card and home equity lines of credit (HELOC) debts declined.Household debt peaked during the quarter, the report said and as on March 31, 2018, it stood at $13.2 trillion, showing an increase of $536 billion than the previous peak recorded in the third quarter of 2008 and 18.5 percent above the trough in the second quarter of 2013.“Although household debt has been growing for five years, its growth has been slow relative to earlier periods, as mortgage debt has continued to be relatively flat,” the report said. “In the first quarter, aggregate delinquency rates improved, as rates on mortgage and HELOC debt declined further, while delinquency on auto and credit card debt increased.”Even though the report found that households continued to view housing as a good investment, it said that current homeowners had not used their home equity to finance consumption. According to Beverly Hirtle, EVP and Director of Research at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, one of the factors could be mortgage credit that “has been quite tight in the wake of the financial crisis.”These tight lending standards have lent to a slow growth in aggregate balances and continually improving delinquencies, the report found. In fact, the already stringent standards on HELOCs tightened further after the financial crisis with the required median score of new HELOC borrowers pegged at almost 800. Unlike HELOCs, the report said, even though mortgage standards had also been very tight since the crisis, underwriting for installment mortgages had loosened recently. Yet, homeownership seems to have fallen in recent years.“Tight credit can limit the scope for renters to become owners and for current homeowners to access their equity,” Hirtle said. Though factors such as regulation and financial institutions’ wariness about using housing as a collateral as a lesson from the crisis could be responsible for this situation, the increase in other forms of debt, especially student loans, among younger borrowers, and lower credit scores could also be responsible for the fall in homeownership as well as using home equity, the report found.The report found that those who had gained most housing wealth over the last decade were older borrowers with high credit scores and they are “probably less likely to need the credit that increased housing wealth could collateralize,” Hirtle said. “Those who do have a strong demand for credit and own some home equity may have trouble tapping it if they have less-than-stellar credit histories.” The Evolution of Housing Wealth  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Tagged with: Collateral credit credit history Credit Scores debt Delinquencies Federal Reserve Bank of New York HELOC Homeowners Homes Households HOUSING Investment mortgage Renters About Author: Radhika Ojha Previous: What Fannie Forecasts for Housing in 2019 Next: The Hypervacancy Problem in American Cities Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agocenter_img Collateral credit credit history Credit Scores debt Delinquencies Federal Reserve Bank of New York HELOC Homeowners Homes Households HOUSING Investment mortgage Renters 2018-05-17 Radhika Ojha Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / The Evolution of Housing Wealth May 17, 2018 1,813 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Subscribelast_img read more

FinTech’s Influence on Home Financing

July 22, 2019 2,403 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Much of the real estate market has made strides in integrating fintech, but much of the market remains untapped, according to the Urban Institute. Compared with other goods, the online share of all home sales (to owner occupants, investors, fix-and-flippers, and others) is less than 15%, the Urban Institute states in its report, titled “FinTech Innovation in the Home Purchase and Financing Market.”“Every step of the homebuying process is heavily regulated at the federal, state, and local level,” the Urban Institute states. “Despite these barriers, technology has made inroads within specific pockets of the housing market: helping consumers build credit and save for a down payment, search for and purchase a home, shop for and obtain mortgage financing, navigate mortgage servicing, and extract home equity to eventually sell the home.”Fintech firms can cause transformations in two ways: through improved efficiency and through reduced structural barriers. For example, credit scoring firms have enhanced their technology and modeling techniques and incorporated some additional data into the credit scoring process. FICO, for example, is rolling out new programs where borrowers can allow the use of their bank statements, and has arranged for limited use of telecom data for consumers with limited credit histories. While mortgage lenders currently do not take this data into account, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are investigating the use of these “alternative data” and, in limited circumstances, will extend mortgages to consumers without credit scores.Post-purchase, insurance start-ups such as Lemonade and Hippo utilize advanced tech to generate quotes and sell insurance online. With the process fully automated, Hippo claims to offer 25% lower premium. Other startups can offer reverse mortgages online, without requiring a mortgage and monthly payments by taking a portion of the house value when the property is sold.“In conclusion, substantial innovation has taken place across the mortgage ecosystem, producing clear benefits for consumers,” Urban states. “But major gaps in the availability of fintech services exist.”Urban expects some of these improvements to take place in the coming years as fintech start-ups mature into more established companies.

Are Loans Originated by GSEs Less Likely to Default?

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Milliman reported that the default risk for loans backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac fell to 1.99% during Q2 2019. The default risk for the GSEs was 2.01% during Q1 2019. The report says that the average GSE mortgage originated during Q2 has a 1.99% chance the loan will become 180 days delinquent or worse. Milliman’s most recent number is far decline from the 2007 rate—recorded shortly before the financial crisis—of 13.8%. “Low interest rates in Q2 spurred more borrowers to refinance, which typically reduces credit risk for underlying mortgages,” says Jonathan Glowacki, Principal and Consulting Actuary at Milliman and co-author of the MMDI. “But while the default rated dipped slightly in the second quarter of this year, we’re also starting to see increased economic risk from slower home price growth, which may elevate mortgage default risk in the future.”Ginnie Mae loans had a default risk of 8.15%, which is a slight increase from Q1 2019’s 8.09%. Milliman said this increase is consistent with the overall trends for these loans and that default risk for Ginnie Mae acquisitions have been rising since 2014. “Default risk is driven by various factors including the risk of a borrower taking on too much debt, underwriting risk such as certain mortgage features, and economic risk such as a recession, which can put pressure on home prices,” Milliman states. September’s S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices revealed that the first mortgage default rate increased four basis points to 0.73%. The indices represent a measure of changes in consumer credit defaults and show that the composite rate rose one basis point to 0.93%.Outside of mortgage defaults, the bank card default rate fell 41 basis points to 3.32%, and the auto loan default rate was up seven basis points to 1.05%.Three of the five major metropolitan statistical areas (MSA) showed higher default rates compared to last month. Chicago showed the largest increase, up 14 basis points to 1.19%. The default rates for New York and Miami each rose two basis points, to 0.96% and 1.30% respectively. The rate for Dallas was unchanged at 0.93%.
