In addition, HARP volume accounted for 5 percent of total refinance volume in the third quarter.The FHFA reported that over 3.3 million borrowers have refinanced through the HARP program, which was enacted in 2009 to help homeowners that are not able to refinance due to falling home values.The Agency approximates that over 429,000 borrowers nationwide have a financial incentive to use the HARP program but still have not.HARP refinances were highest in Florida, California, Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia, the FHFA stated.The report showed that Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia are the top five states with the most “in the money” borrowers that are able to use HARP. These borrowers could save an average of $200 per month on mortgage payments.FHFA deems borrowers to be “in the money” if they meet HARP eligibility requirements, have a mortgage balance of $50,000 or more, have a remaining mortgage of no more than ten years, and an interest rate at least 1.5 percent higher than current market rates.”FHFA is continuing its efforts to reach HARP-eligible borrowers and has held town-hall style events with local community leaders in Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami, Newark and Phoenix to get the word out about HARP,” the report stated.Those who refinance using HARP are typically have a lower delinquency rate compared to those who are eligible for the program but choose not to use it, the FHFA says.Of all HARP refinances for underwater borrowers (those with a loan-to-value ratio greater than 105 percent), 28 percent resulted in 15-and 20-year mortgages. The FHFA noted that this method helps build equity for borrowers quicker than 30-year mortgages.The FHFA cautioned potential refinancers that “HARP will sunset on December 31, 2016.”Click here to view the full report.

90-Day Delinquencies Experience Largest Monthly Increase in 9 Years

Ninety-day delinquent mortgage inventory jumped 13 percent in November 2017, the largest monthly increase in nearly a decade. Over 85 percent of these new delinquencies are related to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, according to Black Knight. That amounts to a total of 66,000 hurricane-related severe delinquencies, out of a total 77,000 for the month.The overall national delinquency rate increased by 2.5 percent in November 2017.November’s additions bring the total delinquencies spurred by Harvey and Irma to over 85,000. Delinquencies resulting from Irma spiked during November, increasing by 8,200 month-over-month. On the other hand, Harvey-related delinquencies dropped month-over-month by nearly the same amount, for a total monthly decrease of 8,400.With a total of 48,700 for the month, November’s U.S. foreclosure starts were down 4.78 percent month-over-month, and down 20.86 percent year-over-year. According the Black Knight, November’s foreclosure starts were the second fewest monthly starts for 2017 and the third lowest number since 2004. At 337,000, November 2017 gad the lowest number of active foreclosures since October 2006.The national number of homes that are 30 or more days past due, but not yet in foreclosure, totaled 2,324,000 for November 2017, an increase of 62,000 since October 2017. The number of properties 90 or more days past due, but not yet in foreclosure, totaled 666,000. That’s actually down by 16,000 year-over-year.Editor’s Note: The first report of this story incorrectly cited the largest total number of foreclosures in nine years, this story has been corrected to show that Black Knight found the largest month-over-month increase in 90-day delinquencies in nine years.

Looking into the Housing Market in 2019

first_img Editor’s Note: This feature originally appeared in the August issue of DS News.Sam Khater spends his day ensuring that Freddie Mac’s economics and research team delivers valuable insights and analysis on economic trends and policy issues affecting Freddie Mac and the housing market. With over 20 years’ experience in housing and economics, Khater brings extensive housing finance research and expertise to his role to Freddie Mac, which he joined after 11 years at CoreLogic. At CoreLogic, his responsibilities included producing original research and advising clients, regulators, policymakers, and investors on real estate and mortgage market trends. Before joining CoreLogic, Khater was a senior economist at Fannie Mae and an economist at the National Association of Realtors. He holds a master’s degree in network economics from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree in economics and finance from George Mason University.What housing market trends do you see emerging in the second half of this year?There are two key trends we’re seeing in 2018. One is the rise of the first-time homebuyer. As the economy gets stronger and rates, as well as home prices continue to rise, many potential first-time homebuyers are realizing that now is the best time to jump into the market before it gets more expensive; especially since we see no end in sight regarding the increase in home prices.Another emerging trend that the market has experienced over the past year is the emergence of secondary and tertiary cities as hot housing markets that are beginning to see home-price growth accelerate. This trend has picked up mainly due to the growing unaffordability of the coastal markets and buyers are looking at these new markets to bridge the affordability gap. Some of the new markets that have seen exponential growth during the year include Denver, Provo, Nashville, and Austin. More recently, Reno and Boise have had a sharp run-up in home price growth.Do you see the headwinds related to affordability and inventory shortages continuing into the next year?Inventory shortage and the squeeze on affordability will continue to impact the market in 2019. The chronic shortage of inventory is the biggest hurdle the housing market and as an extension, the economy, is facing. I don’t see that changing anytime soon. Despite home sales rising at a good clip on a year-over-year basis, the construction of new housing is barely above the recession level. We’re just not building fast enough to keep up with the pace of demand, even though we are nine years into the economic expansion. The affordability squeeze is related to the shortage in supply. The inventory crunch is causing a consistent increase in home prices in the order of 5–6 percent, and that’s well above approximately twice the growth in income, causing affordability problems particularly on the coasts.There has been a steady hike in mortgage rates since the beginning of 2018. Are you seeing these hikes impacting buyer sentiments?Consumer confidence has remained high despite rate increases. Looking at the demand for purchase credit and its growth rate, it’s still roughly at the same level it was last year. The year-over-year increase in purchase applications that we look at quite closely has also been growing, indicating that rising rates have not impacted homebuyer sentiment.Freddie Mac recently published a study on how mortgage-rate comparisons can save money for borrowers. Can you share some of your findings?The key takeaway of this study was, for a typical $250,000 loan the expected savings from just one additional quote is about $1,400 for 80 percent of the borrowers who obtain mortgages. If you look at kind of the range of savings, a little over three-quarters of all borrowers who obtain an additional rate offer, save between about $1,000 and $2,100 on their mortgage.That’s a substantial amount of saving, given that there’s a very strong demand for low down-payment products. For example, if a borrower is looking at a home price of $250,000, with a 3 percent down payment that translates to a down payment of around $7,500. Now, if that borrower compares rates and saves $1,000 to $1,400 on the mortgage, that’s a substantial saving on a down payment that’s so small, especially for an entry-level borrower. If a borrower is more aggressive in their search and gets five quotes, then their expected benefits increase to about $2,900.What economic factors will determine the health of the housing industry towards the end of 2018 and going into 2019?Inflation would be the biggest factor by far, because the fear of rising inflation is what’s driving the run-up in rates. The economy is running hot, and the Federal Reserve is being hawkish on inflation.Today, the Fed is trying to get income growth higher via a low unemployment rate. The danger with that is, that if the economy runs a little too hot, then it starts to generate inflation that’s above the 2 percent rate that the Fed is comfortable with. Today, inflation is at exactly 2 percent. However, the biggest factor in 2018 —and even in the first half of 2019—would be to see if inflation continues to grow at roughly the same pace or if it increases. If inflation increases, mortgage rates will go up, adding to the headwind of inventory and increasing prices that buyers are already facing.The growth in income can somewhat taper the impact of rising mortgage rates, because if the economy is growing well, then it’s also generating income growth that will help buyers sustain the increased costs of purchasing a home. But, if inflation rises because of geopolitical reasons or a rise in energy costs, then the economy, as well as the housing market could face a problem.Speaking about buyers, we’ve seen an active millennials homebuyer market this year. What is driving this trend?One clear driver is that millennials are aging. We keep thinking of them as being young, but the truth is that the largest age cohort in the U.S. today is 28 years old—which is the peak of the millennial age-group. As a result, this group has been in the prime renter age for the pastfive years and are now moving into their prime first-time homebuying years. This group will be a strong driver of the market over the next three years. Apart from it being a natural progression, today’s job market is another major factor that’s driving more millennials to buy homes. The job market has been very strong for this generation over the past three to four years and along with financial products that target millennials, such as low downpayment products like Freddie Mac’s Home One, make it a little easier for first-time homebuyers to become homeowners.

Texas Governor Signs $1.6B Hurricane Harvey Relief Bill

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Tagged with: flooding hurricanes Natural Disasters Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles  Print This Post On Thursday, Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.6 billion storm and flood resilience plan. Abbott signed the bill Thursday in Houston, which was hit by Hurricane Harvey in two years ago.“Thanks to the work of the legislature, we are rebuilding Texas stronger and more resilient than ever,” said Governor Abbott, CBC DFW reports. “In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we saw the unshakable spirit of the Lone Star State through the generosity of Texans helping their neighbors. These important pieces of legislation are a symbol of that spirit, as well as a sign of Texas’ commitment to improving the way we respond to natural disasters.”The legislature also voted to appropriate $3 billion in relief for Harvey-impacted areas from the Rainy Day Fund, and Abbot notes that the storm cleanup and readiness package will mitigate damage from the next catastrophic storm. “Thanks to the work of the legislature, we are rebuilding Texas stronger and more resilient than ever,” Abbot added. “In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, we saw the unshakable spirit of the Lone Star State through the generosity of Texans helping their neighbors. These important pieces of legislation are a symbol of that spirit, as well as a sign of Texas’ commitment to improving the way we respond to natural disasters.”Nationally, President Donald Trump recently signed a bill which provides $19.1 billion in recovery funds for disaster-affected areas. The Act directs federal agencies to release the $16 billion in disaster funds Congress approved in early 2018 following Hurricane Harvey to different states and territories—including more than $4 billion to Texas—within 60 days.“After Harvey hit, I fought alongside the Texas delegation to secure additional funds for Harvey survivors,” said U.S. Rep. Mike McCaul. “Unfortunately, the agencies tasked with distributing these funds did not respond with the same urgency.”According to the Texas Tribune, Texas has already received billions of dollars for Harvey recovery, but each bucket of money is designated for a specific purpose. The $4.3 billion that Congress approved for Texas last February is part of a HUD grant program designed “to help cities, counties, and States recover from Presidentially declared disasters, especially in low-income areas.”The Five Star Conference will host its Disaster Preparedness Symposium on July 31 in New Orleans, Louisiana. Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners. The 2019 Five Star Disaster Preparedness Symposium will include critical conversations on response, reaction and assistance, to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) will resume Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC) inspections of HUD multifamily and public housing properties and units next month, under strict safety protocols as the nation attempts to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, Secretary Ben Carson announced today.REAC inspections are the assessment tool that ensures HUD assisted properties meet federal standards of health, safety, and accessibility. On-site inspections were halted last March due to the coronavirus outbreak.“As we continue to fight this invisible enemy and learn more about the safety precautions needed to keep our HUD residents and staff safe, we are able to bring back critical functions of the Department,” Carson said. “Physical inspections are vital in ensuring the health and safety of the Americans who reside in properties enrolled in HUD’s programs, and I am very pleased to announce today they are resuming.”Hunter Kurtz, Assistant Secretary for Public and Indian Housing added, “REAC inspections provide a critical service in HUD assisted properties to ensure residents are living in safe and decent housing. I believe we have found a solution to continue this important function while keeping staff, residents, and inspectors healthy.”To keep the residents and staff of HUD properties safe during the inspection process, REAC will prioritize inspections in states and localities based on the latest COVID-19 data from Johns Hopkins University and health risk scoring methodology from the Harvard Global Health Institute. REAC has developed a heat map that categorizes states and localities into four risk categories:Low Risk—GreenModerately Low Risk—YellowModerately High Risk—OrangeHigh Risk—RedREAC will provide a listing on its website of low-risk counties 45 days prior to the start of physical inspections. At the end of the 45-day period, REAC will provide a 14-day notification to priority properties in that county to inform families that an inspection will take place.The first outreach from inspectors to properties will start no earlier than September 21, 2020. A comprehensive list of safe inspection locations, as well as an overview of the methodology used to determine them can be found on the website here.Inspectors will prioritize properties with historically low REAC scores (high-risk properties) in Low Risk (Green) localities. These locations will change over time, and HUD will adjust its inspection plans as needed. For additional information on HUD’s coronavirus response efforts, please visit HUD.gov/coronavirus.
