Next: More Distressed Borrowers are Keeping Their Homes In an address on Tuesday at the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Regulatory Issues Forum, HUD Secretary Julián Castro said he believed that millennials are “just as committed” to homeownership as previous generations—contrary to the widespread believe that the members of the younger generation are not interested in owning a home.Castro cited a recent survey from TD Bank which found that 40 percent of millennials plan to buy their first home sometime during the next year.“The American Dream of homeownership is as strong today as ever,” Castro said. “And perhaps the best news of all is that millennials are showing that their generation is just as committed to homeownership as their parents and grandparents.”Student loan debt has been the main obstacle to millennials buying a home, Castro said. About 40 million Americans have some amount of student loan debt, and about 70 percent of students graduate with student loan debt. He said the amount of average student loan debt at graduation spiking by 56 percent from 2004 to 2014. The increase has been so great that it has actually caused a role reversal in some families—Castro said many of the parents and grandparents of millennials are shouldering that student loan debt, and now 20 percent of millennials provide some type of financial assistance to their parents and/or grandparents.Julián CastroThings are getting better, however, according to Castro. The number of delinquencies on student loans is declining, and economic improvements have resulted in the creation of 14.5 million jobs over the past 74 months. The average hourly wage is up, having risen by 14 cents over March and April, and the current unemployment rate of 5 percent is the lowest it has been post-recession.Castro added that the housing market is a part of the nation’s overall economic strength.“Real residential investment has grown by more than 8 percent for six straight quarters, highlighting the housing sector’s solid, steady recovery,” Castro said. “In fact, growth in residential investment has substantially outpaced growth in overall GDP.”Castro noted that 1.3 million families have taken advantage of the FHA’s lower mortgage insurance premiums since the FHA cut the premium by 50 basis points in January 2015, a controversial move at the time. The immediate result of the cutting of the mortgage insurance premium was a 27 percent rise in the number of home loans endorsed by the FHA from 2014 to 2015 (up to 753,000). Castro said that more than a majority of those loans are being secured by first-time homebuyers. Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

According to the latest Remodeling Market Index (RMI), released quarterly by the National Association of Home Builders, the number of homeowners who cite “desire to be able to age in place” as a reason for wanting to remodel their homes was trending upward in Q1 2018.With many homeowners facing surging home prices, increasing interest rates, and limited inventory, staying put in an existing home is likely gaining appeal for more people than it otherwise would. The Remodeling Market Index survey results suggest more homeowners are thinking about staying in their current homes rather than shopping around, so it makes sense that they would want to repair and revitalize that home for the long haul.“Aging in place” wasn’t the most popular reason given for wanting to remodel, however. That honor, according to the RMI, was the “desire for newer/better amenities.” The survey asked remodelers “to rate how often their customers cite particular reasons for remodeling on a scale of 1 to 5, where 1 indicates never or almost never, and 5 is very often.” The “desire for newer/better amenities” received a 4.3 rating on the Q1 RMI.The next most-common remodeling reason cited was “need to repair/replace old components” at 4.1, followed by “desire/need for more space” at 3.8 and then “want to avoid moving/buying another home” at 3.5. The desire to age in place came in fifth with a rating of 3.4.However, while it might only be midway up the list, the desire to age in place is experiencing a surge in recent years. In 2012, only 32 percent of remodelers rated that reason as a 4 or 5. That percentage increased steadily over the years until it hit 42 percent in 2017—and then jumped up to 52 percent in 2018.“Repairing a damaged property” tied “want to increase value of home as an investment,” both with a rating of 2.8. Below that was “energy efficiency/environmental concerns” with a ranking of 2.4, “change the number of people living in the house” with a 2.3, and “to accommodate multi-generational living” with a 2.2. (That latter factor is a growing trend. According to the Pew Research Center, a record 64 million people lived in multigenerational homes in the United States.)The last two responses on the RMI top 12 were both more geared toward getting homes back on the market. “Getting an ordinary non-distressed property ready for resale” came in 11th with a 1.8 rating, followed by “getting a property ready for REO/short/other distressed sale” with a 1.4.

However, Jenny Schuetz, a David M. Rubenstein Fellow at the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution, called the proposals thus far “mostly partial fixes that do not address the underlying problems in the U.S. housing markets and policies.” She made her own recommendations on how federal, state, and local governments can “improve the affordability, availability, and equity of housing outcomes for U.S. families,” in a recent post on Brookings’ blog, The Avenue.Her recommendations include four major themes. First, “level the playing field between renters and owners;” second, “stop strangling supply in high-demand locations;” third, “help poor families bridge the gap between income and rent;” and fourth “housing policies alone cannot save places harmed by past policy failures.” In terms of “leveling the playing field,” Schuetz said, “A key part of leveling the playing field is eliminating preferences for homeownership in the federal tax code, namely the mortgage interest deduction and the capital gains exclusions for owner-occupied housing.” She pointed out that the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act “moved in this direction.” She said current laws that incentivize homeownership were “unfair and economically inefficient.” These laws penalized millennials who were delaying homeownership longer than generations past as well as people who lived in areas where home prices were leveling off or declining. Schuetz suggested cities revise land use regulation and development processes that make it more difficult for multifamily development than for single-family home development. Similarly, she called for revisions to zoning laws in order to help bring more supply to competitive markets. Referencing California and the Northeast, she said some markets are “artificially constrained by excessive local land use regulation.” While these zoning laws can benefit current homeowners in these markets by inflating their home prices, she said the excessive zoning ultimately detracts from economic growth. She called out Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-New Jersey) proposed Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing rule, which charges communities that receive Community Development Block Grants with creating “a strategy to support inclusive zoning policies,” saying California “already requires localities to specify a plan ‘to meet the housing needs of everyone in their community’ in their comprehensive plan, yet those same localities continue to underprovide housing.” While the first two themes Schuetz addresses will help middle-class households, she also addresses those in the lowest income rungs. Only one in five families eligible to receive federal housing assistance actually receive assistance. For these families, the “most direct solution” is housing vouchers, an earned income tax credit, or a refundable tax credit. Lastly, Schuetz suggested for the communities suffering from high vacancies and blight caused by past policies, future housing policies may not be enough. “Rather it will take sustained investments in human capital, infrastructure, and targeted economic development strategies to help people in these communities,” she said.

It reflected a decrease in negative equity of total mortgaged residential properties by 4 percent in 2018, compared to 4.1 percent the previous year. Compared to the third quarter of 2017, negative equity decreased 16 percent from 2.6 million homes, or 5 percent of all mortgaged properties.According to the CoreLogic, at the end of the third quarter of 2018, the national aggregate of negative equity recorded an approximate of $281.6 billion—a drop every quarter by approximately $1.1 billion, from $280.5 billion in the second quarter of 2018. Compare this to 2009, negative equity peaked at 26 percent of mortgaged residential properties. Nationally, the average homeowner gained approximately $12,400 in equity during the past year, with California recording the highest year-over-year average increase at $36,500. At the metropolitan level, negative equity continues to improve across the country, with the exception of Miami-Miami Beach and Kendall-Florida, at 11.2 percent year over year, the report found.“The number of homes in a negative equity position has remained around 2.2 million for two consecutive quarters this year. Without equity, those homeowners are unable to sell their homes and are more likely to transition from delinquency to foreclosures if they face financial distress,” said Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic.

Brock The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Single-family rent prices were on an upward path early this year, driven primarily by continued growth at the lower end of the market. In fact, rents rose 3.3% over the year in February, charting their biggest annual jump since August 2016, according to CoreLogic’s Single-Family Rent Index released Tuesday.Overall, single-family rents have been on the rise over the past decade, but they have decelerated somewhat since reaching a peak of 4.2% in February 2016, according to the index.While rents have grown overall across the market, rent price growth at the lower end of the market has been rising at a higher rate than the higher end of the market since April 2014. However, CoreLogic noted that the gap is closing.CoreLogic defines lower-priced rentals as those with prices lower than 75% of the median rent in their region. High-priced rentals are those that have rental prices more than 125% of the median rent in their region.At the lower end of the market, rents charted a 3.6% year-over-year increase in February, down from a 4% annual gain recorded in February 2019.However, this rate is still higher than the 3% increase recorded at the high end of the market. Also, illustrating that narrowing gap between rent growth at the high and low ends of the market, CoreLogic mentioned, high-end rent growth is up from a 2.6% growth rate recorded in February 2019.CoreLogic attributed persistent rent growth to rental home inventory lagging demand.Among the 20 large metro areas observed, Phoenix had the highest rate of annual rent growth in February at 6.2%. The metro was followed closely by the Seattle metro, where rents grew 6.1% over the year in February.Phoenix’s rent growth can be attributed in part to its strong economy and growing employment. In fact, employment grew 3.2% in Phoenix in February compared to 1.6% across the nation overall, according to CoreLogic.Other factors that can cause accelerated rent growth in a market are low vacancies among rental properties and limited construction.Detroit was the only metro to post a decline in rents in February with a 2.2% annual.Honolulu, Miami, and Philadelphia all posted rent growth under 2% in February.February’s overall rent growth took place alongside strong employment growth for the month, but the departure that took place in March will likely make waves in the rental market.The spike in unemployment sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic “has disrupted the typical rental demand and supply dynamic, which will ultimately impact rent growth in coming months,” according to CoreLogic.While noting that demand could detract in the short-term, Molly Boesel, principal economist at CoreLogic said Tuesday, “However, as we look ahead to an economic recovery, consumers may begin considering single-family rentals over multifamily options to provide more space for at-home offices and distance from other housing units.” Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Investment renter SFR April 21, 2020 1,170 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Investment Update: Single-Family Rents on Upward Trend in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, News Subscribelast_img read more

Despite Federal Actions, Q1 Foreclosures Rise

Peck has 20-plus years’ experience covering the mortgage industry, he most recently served as Editor-in-Chief for The Mortgage Press and National Mortgage Professional Magazine. Peck graduated from the New York Institute of Technology where he received his B.A. in Communication Arts/Media. After graduating, he began his professional career with Videography Magazine before landing in the mortgage space. Peck has edited three published books and has served as Copy Editor for Entrepreneur.com. Home / Daily Dose / Despite Federal Actions, Q1 Foreclosures Rise An analysis of Q1 foreclosures by ATTOM Data Solutions has found that there were a total of 33,699 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings—default notices, scheduled auctions, or bank repossessions—during the first quarter of 2021, up 9% from the previous quarter, but down 78% year-over-year.The Q1 2021 U.S. Foreclosure Market Report also shows a total of 11,880 U.S. properties with foreclosure filings in March 2021, up 5% over February 2021, but down 75% from March 2020’s totals, marking the second consecutive month with month-over-month increases in U.S. foreclosure activity.”The foreclosure moratorium on government-backed loans has virtually stopped foreclosure activity over the past year,” said Rick Sharga, EVP of RealtyTrac, an ATTOM Data Solutions company. “But mortgage servicers have been able to begin foreclosure actions on vacant and abandoned properties, which benefits neighborhoods and communities. It’s likely that these foreclosures are causing the slight uptick we’ve seen over the past few months.”Nationwide, one in every 4,078 housing units had a foreclosure filing in the first quarter of 2021. States with the highest foreclosure rates were Delaware, with one in every 1,705 housing units with a foreclosure filing; Illinois, with one in every 2,175 housing units; Florida, with one in every 2,237 housing units; Indiana, with one in every 2,397 housing units; and Ohio, with one in every 2,500 housing units.Lenders began foreclosure proceedings on 17,652 U.S. properties in Q1 2021, up 3% from Q4 2020, but down 78% year-over-year. States that saw the greatest quarterly increase in foreclosure starts and had 500 or more foreclosure starts in Q1 2021, included California (up 36%); Ohio (up 25%); North Carolina (up 15%); Virginia (up 11%); and South Carolina (up 10%).Lenders repossessed 7,320 U.S. properties through foreclosure (REO) in Q1, up 14% from the previous quarter, but down 87% from a year ago. The states with the greatest number of REOs in Q1 2021 were Florida (945 REOs); Illinois (610 REOs); California (414 REOs); Texas (370 REOs); and Arizona (330 REOs).And with emergency federal foreclosure protections eventually set to expire, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently proposed changes to help prevent an impending wave of foreclosures.”The government’s foreclosure moratorium, and the CARES Act mortgage forbearance program have extended foreclosure timelines for owner-occupied homes by a full year,” Sharga said. “Hopefully, this extra time will give financially-distressed homeowners the chance to get back on their feet, and work with their lenders to avoid a foreclosure when the government programs expire.”The CFPB forecasts that if current trends continue, there may be nearly 1.7 million loans at least 90 days delinquent come September 2021. Foreclosures have an average cost to borrowers of at least $12,500, with neighboring homes also losing value, and sale prices dropping by 1%-1.6% after nearby foreclosure sales.
