In CoreLogic’s latest data released Tuesday, about 1.9 percent (approximately 729,000) of residential homes nationwide were in some stage of foreclosure, a decline of 25 percent from the previous March.Nevada was one of the states affected most by the crisis. In response to the housing crash, back in 2009 the Nevada legislature created a Foreclosure Mediation Program. The members of a subcommittee of the Nevada Legislature recently voted to recommend the elimination of the program, however, after determining that the housing market has sufficiently recovered.According to media reports, Nevada’s Foreclosure Mediation Program resulted in more than 7,500 modifications for the fiscal year 2011, and 40 percent of those who utilized the program were able to keep their homes. The program, which was overseen by the Nevada Supreme Court, was funded by fees charged – each case charged a $45 fee to file a notice of default and $400 fee for mediation services.Projected participation in the program has dwindled down to 662 by 2017, according to the reports, and the members of the subcommittee who voted in favor of discontinuing the program say the budget money could be put to better use.”Since the Foreclosure Mediation Program was first initiated, the trend line for those that were served has consistently declined,” Republican Assemblyman Randy Kirner said in an email to DS News. “Last year, for example, only 100 people went completely through the process at a cost of over $2 million. Fortunately, the Nevada economy is recovering, yet the demands on state general funds exceeds funds available. As a result, as legislators, we must make the tough decisions, set priorities, and in many ways ‘divide the baby.’ I believe there are other programs and opportunities that merit higher consideration for investment of state funds. That said, the full Ways & Means Committee has not yet concurred with the subcommittee recommendations, so we will see.”According to CoreLogic’s data released on Tuesday, Nevada’s foreclosure inventory rate (2.2 percent) and serious delinquency rate (5.2 percent) for March 2015 were higher than the national averages of 1.4 percent and 3.9 percent for the month even with the steady declines. But while foreclosure inventory is declining in Nevada, the state is still leading the pack in percentage of residential homes with negative equity. According to CoreLogic’s Q4 2014 Equity Report, 24.2 percent of homes with a mortgage were underwater in Nevada, a full percentage point ahead of second-place Florida (23.2 percent).Democrats on the subcommittee oppose the elimination of the Foreclosure Mediation Program, citing Nevada’s high negative equity percentage as evidence that the program is still needed.Nevada is not the only state recommending the elimination of loss mitigation processes, however. In Indiana, Attorney General Greg Zoeller made a bid in March to stop proposed legislation in the state that would eliminate “settlement conferences” – a homeowner’s final recourse before their home goes to foreclosure. Lawmakers in favor of removing the settlement conferences say they are “duplicative” and “unnecessarily time consuming,” since lenders are required by the Dodd-Frank Act to administrate loss mitigation efforts. Zoeller says the conferences are still necessary, since his office receives about 500 mortgage servicing-related complaints per year.

In addition, Fannie reached its sub-goal for 2016. However, the enterprise failed to meet the very low-income home purchase goal and the low-income refinance goal for 2016.Conversely, FHFA determined that Freddie Mac achieved all of the single-family goals for 2016.Overall, Fannie Mae’s total business volume in 2016 was $637.4 billion. As a result, the total affordable housing allocation transferred was $268 million, the report noted. Meanwhile, Freddie Mac’s total business volume in 2016 was $445.7 billion and the total affordable housing allocation transferred was $187.1 million.Combined, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac acquired $976.4 billion of single-family loans in 2016, an increase of about 18 percent from the $825.6 billion in single-family loans the enterprises acquired in 2015—excluding second liens and reverse mortgages. Additionally, “these totals include loans that collateralize mortgage-backed securities guaranteed by either enterprise and loans purchased for cash,” according to the FHFA.When it comes to fully amortizing fixed-rate mortgages, it accounted for 98.4 percent of combined acquisitions—an increase from last year. In 2016, amortizing hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages accounted for 1.57 percent acquisitions, a decrease from 2.78 percent in 2015.For 2016, the combined share of loans with loan-to-value ratios above 95 percent increased from 1.23 percent in 2015 to 1.85 percent in 2016 for Fannie and Freddie. Mortgages with loan-to-value ratios of 80 percent or below increased to 73.54 percent of loans acquired in 2016.There was some change in the distribution of the borrower credit (FICO) scores of single-family mortgages in this report. “The share of loans with credit scores below 620 fell slightly from 0.66 percent in 2015 to 0.45 percent in 2016,” the report noted. Meanwhile, “mortgages with credit scores between 620 and 659 fell from 4.07 percent of loans acquired in 2015 to 3.75 percent of loans acquired in 2016.”The report includes a breakdown of the single-family mortgage product-types purchased by each enterprise, as well as information on mortgage payment type, loan-to-value ratios, and credit scores for 2016.To view the full report, click here.

A graduate of Harding University, he has covered numerous topics across the real estate and default servicing industries. Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. On Sunday, the Five Star Conference began with the second Single Family Rental (SFR) Roundtable, a hyper-focused event that allowed attendees to engage in conversations on important topics of the day for investors, mortgage servicers, real estate organizations, and property preservation companies dealing in the SFR market. Critical decisions on the direction of the housing market and rental strategies were revealed at this year’s event as expert panels gave insights into rehab, acquisition, funding, market overview, due diligence, and technology innovations to provide the building blocks for a successful business strategy.Speaking before the roundtable, Kevin Ortner, President, and CEO of Renters Warehouse and the Lab Director for the Roundtable said that the event was a chance to bring together industry experts and learn about what’s coming down the pipeline for SFR. “Whenever we come to this event, being able to talk about the challenges the SFR market is facing, what the top experts in the industry are doing, where they see it going, and talking to visionaries to get an idea on what’s next, is what makes this roundtable special,” Ortner said.The big topic of the day was acquisitions in single-family rentals, especially overcoming challenges on acquiring assets. With the industry changing in the last five years, the single-family rental market has come a full circle, according to Ortner. “Five years ago it was all about finding assets that were distressed; then it shifted to financing to acquire those assets and operating them. Now, we’re back to investors saying that they want more inventory and product,” he explained. “This is the challenge in today’s environment since the real estate market is so different from what it was before.”During the session on acquisitions, panelists spoke about where investors could find the inventory and where the market needed to go from there.Panels also included tips and strategies on rehabbing an investors portfolio where an expert panel spoke about capitalizing on investment and determining if local or national partners were the best choice.In an afternoon keynote, Dennis Cisterna, CEO Guardian Residential, touched upon hot topics like the state of the SFR investment market, housing market and economic trends, and how different issues such as household income and building permits were creating one of the most unique housing markets in the past 100 years. The day ended with sessions on how investors could use technology for valuation, money exchange and pinpointing high-return markets and how title and tax research, as well as how insurance and compliance, could help investors in SFR stay ahead of the competition.

General Population Trails Servicemembers in Financial Well Being

A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. General Population Trails Servicemembers in Financial Well Being According to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Annual Report on financial literacy and preparedness, military servicemembers show slightly higher levels of financial well-being compared to the general population.The report was released by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which created a test to measure financial well-being. Scores range from 0-100, with a higher score correlating to higher levels of financial well-being.The average score was 61 for a servicemember on active duty and 60 for reserve members. The general population had the lowest share of higher scores at just 36%. Fifty percent of active servicemembers and 45% of reserve members scored higher than 61. The average score for the general population was 54.The general population had the most individual scores in the bottom tier at 13%. Servicemembers combined to have just 10% score lower than 10.“The higher levels of financial well-being exhibited by servicemembers may be explained by certain characteristics and benefits of military service,” the report states. “For example, the CFPB found in its research that U.S. adults with a stable month-to-month income had a higher score (56) than those whose income varies from month-to-month (50). Individuals with employer-provided health benefits had a higher score (56) than those without (51).”Of course, this report does not imply that servicemembers do not have financial challenges. According to the survey, about one-third of servicemembers have less than one month of emergency savings, and 23% of junior enlisted servicemembers had no emergency funds.The CFPB recently started its “Start Small, Save Up” initiative, after research found 40% of Americans could not cover a $400 emergency expense.A 2018 National Association of REALTORS Research Group report entitled “Veterans & Active Military Home Buyers Profile” found that active-duty military make up 2% of all American homebuyers, with veterans accounting for 17%, and 81% non-military. The report also found that, while active-duty military homebuyers do have a lower median income than non-military buyers at $84,000, they have other advantages, including stable job security and no-down-payment financing options. A full 56% of active-duty homebuyers put no money down when purchasing a home, and 41% of veterans. For comparison’s sake, only 7% of non-military buyers are able to make use of no-down-payment financing options.Among active-duty military who financed their home, 77% used a VA loan and 15% used a conventional loan. For veterans, 58% used a VA loan and 33% used a conventional loan.Overall financial well being has been a topic of discussion in recent weeks after April’s job’s report showed the lowest unemployment rate (3.6%) since 1969.  April saw the addition of 263,000 jobs, which was the strongest month for job growth since January and the 103rd straight month of gains.“Today’s report suggests that the labor market remains healthy, which should ease recession concerns and curb expectations of a Fed rate cut for the moment,” Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s Chief Economist, said. “We expect the Fed to remain patient given a solid labor market and little evidence of upside inflation risks.Representatives from the mortgage servicing industry recently gathered for a charity golf tournament benefiting military servicemembers through Operation Homefront.

Four M-2 bonds were upgraded to an NAIC 1 designation and two M-2 bonds were upgraded to an NAIC 2 designation.The CAS bonds which received upgraded NAIC Designations in the 2019 filing year are listed here. CAS REMIC transactions are issued out of a bankruptcy remote trust, rather than as direct debt of Fannie Mae.Fannie Mae issued the first REMIC structure for Connecticut Avenue Securities in November 2018. Renee Schultz, SVP of Capital Markets at Fannie Mae, stated that it “was an important transaction for a number of different reasons.””One, for us, it helped align the accounting treatment, the recognition of the loss and the benefit. Also, it opened up the investor base. “Fannie Mae announced in November 2019 that it has priced a $998 million Connecticut Avenue Securities note offering. The offering, CAS Series 2019-R07, is designed to share credit risk on its single-family conventional guaranty book of business.”“We are pleased to successfully bring our seventh CAS REMIC transaction to market this year,” said Laurel Davis, VP of Credit Risk Transfer, Fannie Mae. “Subject to market conditions, we plan to return to market in late November with a new series of CAS notes referencing loans originated under Fannie Mae’s Refi Plus and HARP initiative, as part of ongoing capital management efforts. This will be our final transaction of the year.”The reference pool for CAS Series 2019-R07 consists of approximately 102,000 single-family mortgage loans with an outstanding UPB of approximately $26.6 billion. The majority of these loans were acquired from April through June 2019, and are fixed-rate, generally 30-year term, fully amortizing mortgages.Potential buyers can register for ongoing announcements or training, and find more information on Fannie Mae’s sales of Community Impact Pools of non-performing loans and on the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s guidelines for these sales, on the company’s Whole Loans Sales’ page.

Rocket Companies’ founder, Dan Gilbert, is worth $7.1 billion.Bloomberg added that Rocket Companies has stated it earned $97.7 million on revenue of $1.8 billion in three months ended March 31. This is compared to a loss of $299 million on $727 million in revenue a year earlier.News of the IPO circulated last month, with CNBC reported that it could be the largest IPO of the year. CNBC added that Quicken Loans is working with Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, and JPMorgan to manage the deal. Valuation has yet to be decided but CNBC reports that it is “tens of billions of dollars” and possibly one of the largest IPOs of the year.Quicken Loans CEO Jay Farner told CNBC that March was the “biggest closing month in our company’s history with nearly $21 billion in mortgages closed.”According to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), mortgage applications continue their resurgence during COVID-19.Applications rose 2.2% from the prior week, according to the MBA, and purchases were up weekly by 33%.  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily About Author: Mike Albanese July 8, 2020 2,133 Views Quicken Loans Officially Files for IPO Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
