Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Editor’s note: This feature originally appeared in the September issue of DS News, out now.From authoring Genworth Mortgage Insurance’s Weekly Economic Report to leading industry surveys for lenders, Tian Liu is responsible for tracking the U.S. and regional economic trends. Liu began his economics career in the Australian Treasury Department in 1997 and started covering the U.S. housing market with Cemex in 2007, where he was the Director of Economics responsible for economics and housing market analysis. In 2011, he joined Owens Corning to lead its economics team. Liu joined Genworth Mortgage Insurance as its Chief Economist in 2014. He holds a master’s in economics from the University of Chicago and an undergraduate degree in economics from the Australian National University.What are the factors impacting housing supply? Do you see this challenge continuing into 2019?Inventory shortage has been going on for many years and a couple of factors are responsible for it. First, there has been a very low level of construction so far that has recovered only moderately over the past few months. Secondly, we haven’t seen that V-shaped recovery we saw in past cycles, resulting in a wide gap between demand and supply.On the demand side, we are currently seeing a very strong housing demand partly because of the macroeconomic picture such as strong job growth that’s encouraging homebuyers to get back into the housing market. The millennial generation is also driving demand because they have reached an age where they are starting to have families.The third factor affecting inventory is the shortage of repeat buyers. If you look at the type of homebuyers, repeat buyers sell the unit they’re living in to buy another one, creating a lower impact on inventory. On the other hand, a first-time homebuyer is moving out of their apartment or their parents’ or friends’ homes to start a new household. So the drain on inventory is bigger from a first-time homebuyer.As a result of all these factors, while inventory is improving slightly with the rise in construction, more first-time homebuyers coming into the market, we don’t see a huge change in mitigating this challenge in 2019.How do current housing market trends compare to what we have seen historically regarding growth?The absence of a V-shaped acceleration in housing recovery is one of the main differences between this recovery cycle and the previous ones. We haven’t seen a broad-based recovery across all housing price points either. It has been strongest at the higher end of the price point, but looking at the lower end, such as homes below $200,000, the market segment hasn’t recovered as much.According to our First-time Homebuyers Report published in May, we’re seeing a significant increase in first-time buyers over the last three years. Between 2014 and 2017, there has been a 40 percent increase in that market segment. At the same time, the repeat buyer segment has barely budged and is largely squeezed out of the market. Therefore, as soon as we have an adequate supply in the market, we could see a reacceleration from the repeat buyers because these homeowners have stayed in their homes for a long time. And their home equity has accumulated over the last few years.Historically, when people accumulate a lot of home equity, they tend to upgrade their housing. But in this cycle, because of lack of inventory and competition from first-time homebuyers, they haven’t been able to do that.But we do see deceleration for the first-time homebuyers. This segment has seen such a tremendous growth in the last three years partly because of catch-up in the delayed household formation after the housing crisis. And partly because of demographics, such as the millennial homebuyers.What are the drivers to get more millennials into the housing market?The first driver is educating millennials on their borrowing options. One myth that we continue to see in the market is that you need a large amount of down payment to become a homeowner. For example, many first-time homebuyers are unaware that with a conventional mortgage, you can go down to as little as 3 percent down payment. Today, FHA loans are the most popular option for first-time homebuyers and are in fact the largest product for this segment, followed by conventional loans with mortgage insurance. The latter is the fastest-growing market segment in the mortgage industry. That’s a very important driver because we have seen that down payment and getting a mortgage loan are some of the biggest hurdles faced by first-time homebuyers.Secondly, it is important to educate millennials about the housing options available for them and what will suit them in the long- and short-term. For example, If they’re planning to stay at a location for a short period then it is better to rent. However, if a buyer is thinking of starting a family and settling down then homeownership looks a lot more attractive, just because they have the appreciation in home prices working for them over a longer period.Prices are the third driver. Millennials are part of a large generation, and whenever you have a large generational cohort like this one coming into the market, they tend to compete against themselves and create a demand pressure that tends to drive up home prices. In that sense, it is better to buy early than later.How have homeownership trends changed regarding diversity over the past decade?There’s been an increased focus on thinking about how we can responsibly expand the credit box and make affordable products available to all current and prospective homeowners. We view this as a necessary step towards continuing to drive America’s housing market, which is central to our country’s economy.What can we expect from the market moving to the last quarter of 2018?Inventory will remain a challenge for the rest of the year and will likely be flat by the end of 2018. An important exception will be the strong sales of new homes, which will continue to increase between 10 percent and 15 percent as homebuilders increase their production. Regarding home prices, we will continue to see a 6 percent to 7 percent home price appreciation, partly because of strong demand and also because we still don’t have as much new construction as we should.The increasing costs for home builders from the tariffs that have been imposed have become more and more relevant to the overall housing market in the last few months and are contrary to what we want to see from policymakers, which is making housing more affordable.Regarding homeownership, we expect 1 percent increase year-over-year for the rest of 2018, with the recovery being the strongest among young households that ties into millennials coming into the housing market.

Freddie Mac’s aggregate unpaid principal balance on its mortgage-related portfolio increased by around $200 million in February.Additionally, Freddie Mac noted that its single-family serious delinquency rate dropped by one basis point month over month, down from 70 basis points in January to 69 basis points in February. Since the start of conservatorships in September 2008, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have completed a total of 4,283,836 foreclosure prevention actions, according to the Q4 2018 Foreclosure Prevention Report from the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). In Q4 2018 alone, the GSEs completed 41,062 foreclosure prevention actions. According to the FHFA, 3,591,985 of the foreclosure prevention actions completed since 2008 have been resulted in homeowners staying in their homes, while 2,314,121 actions have been permanent loan modifications.According the the report, both Fannie and Freddie have seen their mortgage performance improved overall as of Q4 2018: the percentage of 60+ days delinquent loans dropped from 1.13 percent at the end of the third quarter to 1.08 percent at the end of the fourth quarter. Additionally, the Fannie and Freddie’s serious (90 days or more) delinquency rate decreased to 0.73 percent at the end of the fourth quarter. This compared with 3.8 percent for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loans, 2.0 percent for Veterans Affairs (VA) loans, and 2.1percent for all loans. Foreclosure starts increased 11 percent to 36,002 while third-party and foreclosure sales decreased 8 percent to 11,510 in the Q4 2018.Q4 2018 also saw 1,781 completed short sales and deeds-in-lieu, which brings Fannie and Freddie’s total to 691,851.”The number of completed short sales and deeds-in-lieu decreased 18 percent in the fourth quarter compared with the third quarter of 2018,” the FHFA stated. “These foreclosure alternatives help to reduce the severity of losses resulting from a borrower’s default and minimize the impact of foreclosures on borrowers, communities, and neighborhoods.” About Author: Seth Welborn The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

She previously worked at both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. While at Fannie Mae, she provided the GSE’s official monthly forecast for the economy, housing market, and mortgage market stocks and flows, as well as providing analyses on trends in the mortgage market, including characteristics of borrowers, homeowners, and mortgage products.DS News spoke to Boesel on trends impacting the investment and rental market, including the ongoing trade war and the QM patch.How has the influx of single-family rentals impacted the market?The stock of single-family rentals grew during the foreclosure crisis as investors turned foreclosed homes into rentals. While there has been an influx of single-family rentals, demand for these rentals has also been high. Some of the demand has come from households displaced by foreclosure and some has come from millennial households who are looking for a single-family home but are not ready to buy. Just as the market has a low supply of for-sale housing, some markets also have a low supply of for-rent housing, which has driven rents up.Built-for-rent properties will most likely be built in areas where there is a need for more rental supply.Do recent indicators such as the inversion of the yield curve and the Fed’s lowering interest rates signal a recession on the horizon? And what would a recession mean for housing?The U.S. is currently in the longest economic expansion recorded. While economic expansions eventually end, indicators such as an inverted yield curve or monetary easing don’t always signal an impending recession. Consumers are still confident and they are still spending money. Unemployment is low, and the economy continues to grow. Whenever a recession would hit, housing will be in good shape to weather a downturn. Unlike the last recession, homeowners are in a good position. Eight-plus years of increasing home prices have resulted in record amounts of home equity. Unlike the mid-2000s, owners aren’t tapping into this equity. Delinquencies are near record-low levels. Also unlike the mid-2000s there is a shortage of for-sale housing.How is the trade war and tariffs impacting housing?We keep hearing about a shortage of for-sale housing, particularly at the lower-price points. Newly constructed homes help ease that shortage. However, tariffs imposed on steel and aluminum increased the cost of building materials, increasing the cost of new construction.What factors are keeping first-time buyers out of the market?Our research tells us that millennials, particularly the oldest ones, have a desire to become homeowners. Older millennials (those aged 30–38) are actively engaged in homebuying, with the majority of them either already purchasing homes or expecting to do so in the next year. Younger millennials are primarily renters, though roughly a quarter of the younger millennials have already purchased a home.So, the demand is there, but there are barriers to owning for these households. For those not interested in buying, most cite affordability as the primary reason—they say they can’t afford a home, they can’t find a home where they want to live, or they can’t come up with a downpayment.Are there any shifting regulatory factors to look out for in the near future?We are keeping our eye on the expiration of the QM patch—the temporary category under which loans eligible for purchase by the GSEs qualify as QM loans. While January 2021 might seem like a long way away, policy makers are discussing the patch and CoreLogic has been studying the impacts of the QM patch and the size of this market.What are some way affordability is being hindered or helped?Rapidly rising home prices, especially of lower-priced homes, has made homes unaffordable for many would-be buyers. However, while home prices have continued to increase, the rate of increase has slowed sharply. If you add to that the recent decrease in mortgage interest rates, you end up with lower mortgage payments. Payments on loans made starting this spring are lower than they were a year ago.What does your day-to-day look like at CoreLogic?On most days I am looking over research and data releases put out by the Office of the Chief Economist. Each of the data releases is accompanied by a blog, and there are always interview requests. Besides the data releases, I like to take a deeper dive into the CoreLogic property records to evaluate data quality and to find new trends. Finally, I don’t want to forget about the great team we have in the Office of the Chief Economist. Typically, you can find us sharing research results and talking over current events while we take lunch in the breakroom of our newly redesigned Vienna, Virginia, office.

Stimulus Could Help Keep American Economy ‘Afloat’

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago 2020-10-22 Christina Hughes Babb Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago October 22, 2020 1,271 Views  Print This Post A couple of articles published this week on Axios.com, a provider of technology, economy, and political news, take a lesser-seen optimistic approach to matters including a recent report about millions of Americans missing mortgage and rent payments and news about Congress’ failure to pass an updated stimulus bill.Axious Markets editor Dion Rabouin allows that, indeed, six million Americans last reported month were behind on a mortgage/rent bill, however, he notes, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), which initiated said study, also showed that 3.4 million homeowners were enrolled in federal forbearance programs the same month.To further put things in perspective, data on lower-income rental units show lower payment rates, but at numbers that are broadly in line with 2019, MBA’s Michael Fratantoni told Rabouin.Fratantoni went on to say that, “… six months ago I would’ve expected to see much more distress, particularly on the rental side.”In short, wrote Rabouin, “Government forbearance programs are keeping homeowners afloat.”In a deeper dig, the author goes on to offer evidence that “the stimulus delay isn’t a crisis (yet).””If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn’t know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise,” wrote the Markets author.For that, he credits the $2 trillion CARES Act and the American people’s uncanny “ability to save during the crisis.” (In addition, Americans’ credit scores also have improved.)DS News also reported that the spring stimulus check went largely toward mortgage, rent, and household expenses.Rabouin goes on to back up the idea that Americans benefitted from the first round of relief, and that, as David Wilcox, Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, told Axios, “The CARES Act worked. It delivered a massive amount of financial support and put a huge financial safety net under families very quickly.”By the numbers, from the Axios article:The median jobless worker received unemployment benefits “equal to 145% of their pre-job loss wages, compared to 50% in normal times” thanks to the CARES Act’s $600-per-week unemployment supplement, a report from the JPMorgan Chase & Co. Institute found.Additionally, the creation of special pandemic unemployment programs allowed millions more out-of-work Americans to access jobless benefits, which amounted to 7% of total personal income in June — a record far exceeding the 1.3% peak during the Great Recession.Unemployed Americans “roughly doubled their liquid savings over the four month period between March and July 2020.” The report notes, however, that they “then spent two-thirds of the accumulated savings in August alone.”The results: The percentage of people who said their ability to afford household goods had improved was the highest since early June in the latest Axios/Ipsos nationwide poll, tied for the best since the survey began in March.Not all of the data is so cheery. The reporter cites a study that shows poverty and food insecurity increasing in households with children.While the economy has held up unexpectedly well, he wrote, the latest jobs report is showing signs of strain.  He returns to the MBA’s Fratantoni, who says a new stimulus bill, at worst, would be a “form of insurance on the recovery.””If you’re a policymaker,” Fratantoni told Rabouin having that insurance or risk management mindset makes a lot of sense right now.” About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Share 1Save Previous: CFPB Addresses Regulating Consumer Access to Financial Data  Next: A Community Blight Nightmare?
