As more jobs are added each month and the unemployment rate has dipped to pre-recession levels, the number of foreclosed homes has seen a corresponding substantial decline.Just how many fewer REO properties are out there now compared to the total of REO properties at the peak of the crisis? The FHFA’s Foreclosure Prevention Report for Q4 2015 said that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac owned a combined total of 72,783 REO properties as of the end of the fourth quarter—less than a third of their peak total of slightly more than five years earlier—in Q3 2010, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac owned a combined total of approximately 242,000 REO properties. That quarter, property acquisitions outpaced dispositions by the count of 124,000 to 74,000.The 72,000-plus REO properties owned by the GSES represented a decline of 6 percent from Q3’s total of approximately 77,000. The 6 percent over-the-quarter decline was attributed to property dispositions outpacing acquisitions by the count of 25,531 to 21,100 during the quarter. The 21,100 acquisitions represented a decline of 6 percent, while the 25,531 dispositions represented a decline of 20 percent over-the-quarter for Q4.According to FHFA, about 14 percent of the GSEs’ REO inventory was located in Florida during the fourth quarter of 2015 (about 10,000 properties). About 19 percent of the inventory was concentrated in four Midwestern states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio).While the number of REO properties owned by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in Q4 2015 was approximately one-third of its peak total from five years earlier, the number of completed third-party and foreclosure sales was less than one-fifth of its peak total from Q3 2010. During the fourth quarter of 2015, there were 25,096 foreclosures completed on Fannie Mae- and Freddie Mac-owned single-family residential properties; in Q3 2010, foreclosure completions reached their peak total of 138,000. Likewise, foreclosure starts also peaked in Q3 2010 at 339,000 but by Q4 2015 had declined to 65,000.Click here to view the FHFA’s entire Foreclosure Prevention Report for Q4 2015. completed foreclosures Fannie Mae Freddie Mac REO 2016-03-28 Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe read more


The Risks and Rewards of ARMs


first_imgHome / Daily Dose / The Risks and Rewards of ARMs  Print This Post Adjustable-Rate Mortgage ARM Borrowers default 2019-05-02 Seth Welborn About Author: Seth Welborn Sign up for DS News Daily May 2, 2019 2,624 Views Previous: Re-Evaluating the Traditional Appraisal Next: The Industry Pulse: Updates on the FHFA, Freedom Mortgage Corporation, and More Adjustable-rate mortgages (ARM) are making a resurgence, despite lingering negative associations some borrowers may have for the product post-crisis. A new Washington Post story explores the renewed popularity of ARMS, and how the modern versions differ from their predecessors.Ann Thompson, a Retail Sales Executive for Bank of America in San Francisco, told the Post, “ARMs became a four-letter word after the housing crisis. They got a bad rap and were lumped in with ‘pick-a-payment’ loans, which allowed people to pay as little or as much as they wanted on their mortgage.”According to Ellie Mae data, ARMs made up 8.6% of new loans originated in January 2019, compared to only 5.5% in January 2018. That percentage decreased to 7.6% in February 2019. Many modern ARMs fall under the “hybrid” umbrella, featuring “a fixed period followed by annual adjustments in the rate,” the Post explains. The Post also spotlights how modern ARMs factor in borrowers’ ability to make payments after future rate adjustments—a critical consideration when managing risk.“Typically, lenders want at least a 10% down payment and they want a FICO score of 700 or above,” said Shawn Sidhu, a mortgage consultant for C2 Financial. “These loans really favor borrowers with an excellent credit profile.”As reported by the Post, borrowers leading up to the crisis were often “approved for ARMs without a down payment and with little documentation of their income and assets, which meant they lacked the equity to refinance and faced unsustainable payments when their rates increased.”To help avoid default, Claudia Mobilia, SVP of Operations for Embrace Home Loans notes that borrowers should obtain a disclosure form that shows them what their maximum payments could be.“They need to talk to a lender to make sure they know how long the rate is fixed in the beginning, what their payment could be at the first adjustment and how high the payment can go,” Mobilia said. “I don’t recommend ARMs for first-time buyers because they may not understand the risks.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Adjustable-Rate Mortgage ARM Borrowers default The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agocenter_img Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago According to former Fed governor Randy Kroszner, while the Federal Reserve has taken the right first steps to mitigate the damage caused by the coronavirus, there is still more to be done. In this Video Spotlight, Kroszner discusses with CNBC how reviving programs from 2008 and 2009.Kroszner also discusses how the Fed bought back mortgage-backed securities a decade ago, and why the Fed’s emergency moves will help narrow spreads in mortgage-backed securities.In addition to the rate cut, the Fed announced that over the coming months that it will increase its holdings of Treasury securities by at least $500 billion and its holdings and agency mortgage-backed securities by at least $200 billion.The reduction of interest rates to 0% was suspected at the end of last week, as Goldman Sachs economists expected this move, according to The Street.“In light of the continued growth in coronavirus cases in the U.S. and globally, the sharp further tightening in financial conditions, and rising risks to the economic outlook, we now expect the [Federal Open Market Committee] to cut the funds rate 100 basis points on March 18,” Hatzius wrote. in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Secondary Market Tagged with: Federal Reserve Mortgage-Backed Securities Subscribe Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Previous: Home Prices Reducing Foreclosure Risk Next: Legal Challenges: Education is Key The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Report: Biden Picks Marcia Fudge to Lead HUD


first_imgSign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post President-elect Joe Biden reportedly has selected Ohio congresswoman Marcia Fudge to lead the department. If confirmed, she would be the first Black woman in decades to serve as Secretary.Politico on Tuesday first reported the anticipated appointment based on information from two unnamed sources with “knowledge of the decision.”Fudge, who has served in the House since 2008, today serves on the Committee on House Administration, House Committee on Agriculture, and House Committee on Education and Labor. She also chairs several other subcommittees, according to her website.Fudge represents many predominately Black areas of Cleveland as well as part of Akron, according to an article in Bloomberg.”If nominated, she would be one of just a few House members to leave for the Biden administration as Democrats fight to hold on to the small majority they’ve secured in the next Congress,” Bloomberg reported.The Hill reported that House Majority Whip James Clyburn predicted President-elect Joe Biden would nominate Fudge to a Cabinet position in a Tuesday appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”“Look for her to be in the Cabinet,” Clyburn said. “It may not be at Agriculture but she will be nominated to be in the Cabinet.”According to Politico, the offer to lead HUD follows weeks in which Fudge launched a bid to become Agriculture secretary.Earlier in the day, Politico, while reporting that Fudge was emerging as a frontrunner, noted that whomever takes the place of outgoing HUD secretary Benjamin Carson will enter the department during a major “housing crisis.””Fair housing will also be a priority,” Politico reported, adding that she will enter at a time when “the gap in homeownership rates between white and Black Americans has never been wider, a key driver of the persistent racial wealth gap.”Correction: DS News incorrectly reported that Marcia Fudge, if confirmed, would be the first Black female to lead HUD. In fact, Patricia Roberts Harris served as HUD secretary from 1977-1979. This article has been corrected to reflect that.
