He found that although total flipping was down in the first quarter of 2014 compared to a year ago, flippers are making bigger profits per flip. The average gross profit per flip in the first quarter of 2014 saw a 30 percent return on the initial purchase price, while gross profits increased year-over-year for a 28 percent return on investment. However, the total volume of flipped properties has declined from the previous year.Blomquist noted that 3.7 percent of all single-family homes sold this year were flips, compared to a 6.5 percent share of sales a year ago. The company said one of the most important factors in a successful and profitable home flip is how much work will need to be performed on the house in order to resell it at a higher margin. The top counties by gross return on investment in Q1 2014 include Prince George’s County, Maryland; York County, Pennsylvania; Baltimore, Maryland; Campbell County, Kentucky; and New Castle County, Delaware.In its latest Beige Book, the Federal Reserve noted economic activity has expanded in recent months, with the pace of growth characterized as moderate in the Boston, New York, Richmond, Chicago, Minneapolis, Dallas, and San Francisco Districts, yet modest in the remaining regions. Wednesday’s summary reinforces comments by Fed Chair Janet Yellen in which she forecast a faster pace of expansion as financial conditions remain supportive of growth in economic activity and employment.

Proceed With Caution on HMDA Deregulation

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Protecting Homes From Disaster Next: Insights on FHA Loans in Commentary, Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Banks CFPB CRA Financial Institutions HMDA Lending loans Servicing 2019-07-03 Radhika Ojha Proposed changes to the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) that would increase reporting exemptions on loan volume and other statistics present savings in cost and manpower hours for thousands of financial institutions.Recent estimates suggest that banks collectively spend $270 billion in compliance-related costs or 10% of net operating costs, and the cost could more than double by 2022.While everyone benefits from streamlined bureaucracy, this will be the third threshold change limiting the number of reporting institutions since the implementation of the 2015 HMDA Rule.With continuous watering down of these regulations, banks run the risk of unintentionally impeding the Community Reinvestment Act. We stand to lose sight of the core mission of HMDA: To identify and address discrimination and ensure that economic incentives are focused on where they are most needed. Detailed data on home lending organized by census tract over the past 30 years has made these goals attainable. If we do not proceed cautiously, HMDA itself may become ineffective in its mandate, as the trickle of data it produces would be inconsequential.Under the rule change proposed on May 2 by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), now up for public comment, coverage thresholds and partial exemptions would be affected. For coverage thresholds the CFPB is proposing the following:Increase the coverage threshold from 25 loans in the two preceding calendar years to either 50 or 100 for closed-end mortgage loans.Extend to Jan. 1, 2022, the current temporary threshold of 500 open-end lines of credit and thereafter permanently set the threshold limit at 200 in each of the preceding two calendar years.As for partial exemptions, the rule includes amendments to the data compilation requirements and addresses interpretive issues relating to partial exceptions such as reporting after a merger or acquisition.Under the current landscape of HMDA reporting, approximately 4,960 financial institutions are required to report closed-end mortgages and applications. Of those, 4,263 are depository institutions and approximately 697 are nondepository institutions. Of those required to report, approximately 3,300 or 67% are partially exempt, and of 333 financial institutions are required to report open-end lines of credit of which none are partially exempt.It’s important to consider the implications of the proposed threshold change.If the reporting threshold for closed-end changes from 25 to 50, approximately 745 depository institutions—or 17%—would be relieved of HMDA reporting requirements. In addition, approximately 300 out of an estimated 74,000 total census tracts would lose at least 20% of HMDA reportable data.Further, if the reporting threshold for closed-end loans changes from 25 to 100, approximately 1,682 depository institutions—or 39%—would be relieved of HMDA reporting requirements. In the end, around 1,100 out of an estimated 74,000 total census tracts would lose at least 20% of HMDA reportable data.Although these changes have a small impact on the total number of records being reported, continuing to increase the reporting thresholds could have implications on the usefulness and reliability of HMDA, such as:Less ability to use HMDA data to evaluate a depository institution’s performance under CRADecreased insight to analyze access of credit at a neighborhood level to support targeted programs in underserved communitiesImpact of redlining analysis and comparing to peersThe reduced overall usefulness of reported data and questions about the output of HMDA dataDeregulation of strict measures imposed after the 2008 financial crisis has helped banks and their customers boost the economy and increase confidence. But banks themselves should also recognize the benefit of continued reporting of HMDA statistics for the common good and the overall economy.

The Government’s Impact on Mortgage Servicers

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Print Features Home / Daily Dose / The Government’s Impact on Mortgage Servicers Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Editor’s note: This feature appeared in the June edition of DS News.Before joining the Housing Policy Council in June 2017, Ed DeMarco was a senior fellow in residence at the Milken’s Institute Center for Financial Markets. From 2009 to 2014, he was the acting director for the FHFA, where he served as a conservator for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and regulator of those companies and the federal home loan banks. DeMarco recently appeared on DS5: Inside the Industry to share his thoughts on recent actions by the federal government to help both homeowners and mortgage servicers.  June 1, 2020 1,224 Views Previous: Communities Face an Active Hurricane Season Amidst COVID-19 Next: ‘Far Too Early’ to Know Impact of GSE Framework Subscribe What are your thoughts on the steps taken to protect homeowners by the federal government? The federal government and the mortgage industry itself have taken thoughtful and appropriate steps given the circumstances we suddenly face. The idea that there are literally millions of Americans that have suddenly become unemployed, furloughed, reduced income is unexpected, and it really is a direct response of the government to this national health crisis. For a period of time borrowers that were financially sound and paying their mortgage suddenly have had a major disruption. How does one help them through this major disruption until we return to whatever the new normal is and people’s incomes return and can pay their mortgage? It is consistent with what mortgage servicers have done in the past in areas that have been affected by natural disasters to offer payment forbearance. That is, “Look, there’s a temporary period of time here where you’re not able to pay your mortgage and we expect at the end of that period, you’ll be back on your feet. So, we will forbear on you paying your mortgage and we will take those forborne payments. You’re still going to owe them, but we will work out the repayment of that once we get through this temporary period.” It’s an appropriate response by both the servicing industry and by our federal officials to want to take that approach, given this situation.  Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

The servicer needs to have access to liquidity to make those payments on behalf of the borrower. Under normal circumstances, servicers operate with reserves and access to commercial lines of credit to be able to make those payments. What’s unusual here is the incredible magnitude of forbearance that we are anticipating as a result of the pandemic. In the near term, most servicers will be able to make these payments on behalf of their borrowers, but as this thing prolongs, and as it deepens, we’re expecting that mortgage servicers simply are going to need to have access to additional liquidity support to be able to make those payments on behalf of borrowers. We really do hope that the federal government probably, and most likely the appropriate entity being the federal reserve, would establish a liquidity facility to assist servicers when their normal liquidity resources are insufficient because of the depth and duration of the pandemic.

(Previously, homeowners with FHA-insured mortgages needing assistance had until October 30 to request a COVID-19 forbearance from their mortgage servicer.)HUD Secretary Benjamin Carson said that no American should fear losing a home in the midst of this pandemic.“Today’s forbearance request extension for single family homeowners further solidifies that commitment. I can’t stress enough that this relief should be reserved for those that need it most. Americans who are capable of paying their mortgage on time should do so. The great American come back is in full force—if we work together, we can achieve and even surpass the economic prosperity we saw prior to the pandemic.”According to a press release, FHA requires mortgage servicers to provide up to six months of COVID-19 forbearance when a homeowner requests this assistance, and up to an additional six months of forbearance for homeowners who request an extension of the initial forbearance. Homeowners needing assistance must engage with their servicer to obtain an initial forbearance or to obtain an extension of the initial forbearance.”By providing this important extension, FHA seeks to assist those struggling with the continued financial effects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” added Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Dana Wade.Deputy Assistant Secretary for Single Family Housing Joe Gormley expounded on the importance of keeping up with payments when possible.”It’s always in a homeowner’s best interest to make their mortgage payments if they are able. But for those who are struggling right now, we urge them to engage with their servicer immediately. And, if your servicer contacts you, it is crucial that you respond to them to let them know if you need assistance. The last thing FHA wants is for any homeowner to risk losing their homeownership investment if they are eligible for assistance.”The FHA press release further broke down FHA requirements for servicers:Offer homeowners with FHA-insured mortgages mortgage payment forbearance when the homeowner requests it, with the option to extend the forbearance for up to a year in total. FHA does not require a lump sum payment at the end of the forbearance period.Assess homeowners who receive COVID-19 forbearance for its special COVID-19 National Emergency Standalone Partial Claim before the end of the forbearance period. The COVID-19 National Emergency Standalone Partial Claim puts all suspended mortgage payment amounts owed into a junior lien, which is only repaid when the homeowner sells the home, refinances the mortgage, or the mortgage is otherwise extinguished.Assess homeowners who are not eligible for the COVID-19 National Emergency Standalone Partial Claim for one of FHA’s COVID-19 expanded home retention solutions announced on July 8, 2020.

How Rent Dollars Funnel Back Locally

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / How Rent Dollars Funnel Back Locally A look into the value rent dollars have on the local community by RENTCafé has found that 90 cents of each dollar paid toward rent goes towards taxes, wages, maintenance and improvements, and mortgage payments, while just 10 cents of each dollar belongs to owners and investors.Creative Writer, Editor, and Researcher Florentina Sarac took a look at a Yardi-sponsored initiative, the “COVID-19 Rental Housing Initiative,” a new resource for renters and housing operators backed by four major apartment associations (IREM, NAA, NMHC, NARPM).The American Rescue Plan, signed by President Joe Biden on March 11, seeks to relieve renters and housing providers due to the pandemic, offering $21.55 billion in emergency rental assistance, in addition to the $25 billion in aid received in December, bringing the total to approximately $46 billion in assistance total. Renters nationwide are estimated to be approximately $60 billion behind in payments since the outset of the pandemic.“The largest part of every dollar of rent is used to keep rental housing operational, as 90 cents of it go towards state and local taxes, which support essential services in the community, employee wages, maintenance and improvements, and mortgage payments,” said Sarac. “Just 10 cents go to property owners and investors.”Rent checks are reinvested in the community in the form of taxes, worker salaries and maintenance for buildings. Mortgage payments comprise the largest percentage of rental dollars, at 38 cents. The majority of small owners depend on this money, according to data from the COVID-19 Rental Housing Initiative, as 59% of them carry a mortgage, and many operate on thin margins.“Although well-intended, the extended eviction moratoriums expiring at the end of March did nothing to address renters‘ underlying financial distress or the risk of housing insecurity,” said Sarac in the report. “Renters deeply shaken by the COVID-19 pandemic are incurring levels of debt that they may never be able to repay.”According to data by the Urban Institute and Moody’s Analytics, the average renter behind on their rent owes $6,000 cited the report. With approximately 10.25 million renters in debt as of January 2021, back rent totals have reached an estimated $57.3 billion.Click here for more of RENTCafé’s breakdown of rental dollars.

Americans Redefine the Purpose of Homeownership

A graduate of Southern Methodist University, she has been a reporter, editor, and publisher in the Dallas area for more than 15 years. During her 10 years at Advocate Media and Dallas Magazine, she published thousands of articles covering local politics, real estate, development, crime, the arts, entertainment, and human interest, among other topics. She has won two national Mayborn School of Journalism Ten Spurs awards for nonfiction, and has penned pieces for Texas Monthly, Salon.com, Dallas Observer, Edible, and the Dallas Morning News, among others. The pandemic and resultant stay-at-home orders, which have many Americans continuing to work from home today, have profoundly altered the way people perceive their residential property.”America has undergone a profound shift in its understanding of home, driving homeowners to want more space, new uses, and a better environment to nurture positive changes that evolved during lockdown. They also want to address design, condition, and space frustrations they felt while spending uninterrupted time indoors.” That is according to the eighth annual LightStream Home Improvement Trends Survey.It showed nearly half (47%) of U.S. homeowners say they are utilizing their space differently since the onset of the pandemic.More than two-thirds (69%), according to the study, say spending more time at home has made them eager to upgrade.”Before the pandemic, ‘home’ was a ‘home base’ for launching activities. Under stay-at-home orders, it became the only place, for everything,” said Todd Nelson, SVP of Strategic Partnerships at LightStream. “Our 2021 survey shows many Americans spent time thinking creatively about what they want and need from their homes. Many are now ready to invest in improvements, remodels, and repairs. However, in the rush to renovate it’s not only important to plan project outcomes, it’s critical to have a smart financial strategy in place to pay for it all.”Among survey respondents, 91% reported a lack of space in their home became a big frustration during the COVID-19 situation. Thus, 12% said they were planning home additions.”As spaces are being reimagined, the most popular projects homeowners plan to spend money on in 2021 include kitchen remodels (38%), outdoor improvements (35%), bathrooms remodels (32%), and home repair/technology upgrades (30%),” according to LightStream.One of the primary reasons for needing more space is that the number of children or adults has increased in more than one in ten (12%) U.S. households due to COVID-19 safety (35%), health reasons (20%), or other changes.As a result, the researchers reported, more than half (56%) of those newly-expanded households have renovation plans for 2021.”After a year of stay-at-home orders, it makes sense that consumers are rethinking their home needs.  But just as important, they should also be strategizing how they’re going to pay for those renovations,” continues Nelson.Savings is the No. 1 source of paying for improvements (66% of those surveyed), while their second source of payment is credit cards (30%).Nelson says homeowners using a credit card could save by seeking an installment loan”Compared to using credit cards­­—which on average run over 18% APR—the low fixed rates and fixed terms of a personal loan, cashout refinance or mortgage refinance are really attractive,” he added.
