That being said, we continue to field a wide range of calls on a huge variety of topics, some involving borrowers having trouble making their payments, but many that don’t.”One of the most frequently asked questions Freddie Mac receives is from delinquent borrowers asking what their options are. According to Freddie Mack’s consumer response specialists, borrowers behind on their payments should reach out to their lender as soon as possible to determine the borrower’s eligibility for any of the following programs in order to make payments more affordable and sustainable: refinancing through the Home Affordable Refinance Program (HARP), which last week was just extended until the end of 2016); forbearance; reinstatement; repayment plans; or modification. Failing any of those home retention options, a short sale or a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure can facilitate a graceful exit from the house for the borrower. A section of Freddie Mac’s website, Mortgage Help: Understanding Your Options, discusses all of these options in depth.

A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. Freddie Mac has reached a “critical” milestone toward its goal of implementing the Single Security Initiative with the first use of Common Securitization Platform (CSP) software, known as Release 1, according to an announcement from the Agency on Thursday.Release 1 includes the implementation of the CSP’s core infrastructure and operations and was successfully launched on November 21, according to both Freddie Mac and the Agency’s conservator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).“The successful implementation of Release 1 is a significant milestone toward the ultimate goal of a common securitization platform and a Single Security,” FHFA Director Melvin L. Watt said.The Single Security is a joint initiative of the GSEs under the direction of the FHFA to develop a single mortgage-backed security issued by the GSEs to finance fixed-rate mortgage loans backed by single-family properties. The CSP is a technology and operational platform developed by Common Securitization Solutions (CSS), a joint venture of the GSEs, that will perform many of the core back office operations for the Single Security, according to FHFA.The successful launch of Release 1 indicates the functionality of systems, operations, and controls of the CSP and CSS, according to FHFA. It also enables Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae to use CSS and CSP to issue the new Uniform Mortgage-Backed Securities (UMBS).“We’re excited to use CSS operations and the CSP to support our securities issuance,” said David Lowman, executive vice president of Freddie Mac’s Single-Family Business. “This is a milestone marking several years of intensive work across Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, CSS and FHFA to take this project from concept to reality. I’m very appreciative of the collaboration and drive exhibited by everyone working on this project. This is one of the ways we’re working together to build a better Freddie Mac and a better housing finance system for families, customers and taxpayers.”David M. Applegate, CEO of Common Securitization Solutions, LLC, stated, “We are very pleased to be partnering with Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and FHFA as the CSP progresses. Today’s announcement by Freddie Mac that it has successfully completed its first bond issuance and bond administration on the platform is an important step forward in bringing additional liquidity and fungibility to the TBA market.”Now that Release 1 has been successfully launched, the next step is Release 2, which according to Freddie Mac, “will enable a combined Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae $3.5 trillion market of to-be-announced MBS.” FHFA expects to announce a timeframe for Release 2 in the first quarter of 2017, according to the Agency.“FHFA has developed a timeline of key achievements to date and will update the timeline as milestones are reached. We remain committed to building the CSP in a transparent manner,” Watt said.Click here for more on the Single Security or CSP.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Investments in real estate have declined for the third consecutive quarter, according to the latest minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC). According to the minutes, housing starts were below their Q2 rates, while the issuance of building permits declined over July and August, suggesting that “starts might move lower in the coming months. Sales of both new and existing homes declined in July with existing home sales remaining flat in August.”Yet, the Fed remains optimistic on its economic outlook and has projected that the real GDP would increase in the second half of the year at “a rate that was just a little slower than in the first half of the year.”The minutes projected that over the 2018-20 period, the output in the economy would rise at a rate above the Fed’s estimate and then decline to a slower pace in 2021.While the Fed remained silent of the impact on housing, David Choi and David Mericle of Goldman Sachs recently told Gavyn Davies of Financial Times that housing was by far the most interest rate sensitive sector and had long been seen as the “textbook transmission mechanism of monetary policy.” They said that a meaningful slowdown in residential investment was, in fact, a key feature of a successful tightening cycle.Tendayi Kapfidze, Chief Economist at LendingTree agreed saying that he did not see the housing market being a risk to the broader economy. Pointing to the recent softening of home prices too, he said that this was needed as it was “unsustainable with prices outstripping wage increases since 2012. “As there are fewer buyers at each price point, the appropriate market response is a slowdown in sales and an eventual easing in price momentum,” Kapfidze said.Even with rising mortgage rates, which rose to their highest in the past seven years last week and are one of the prime reasons for the slowdown in national home price growth, the housing market is not facing recession any time soon. “Think of it as a pause, rather than a slowdown,” advised Sam Khater, Chief Economist, Freddie Mac in an upcoming article in DS News’ sister magazine MReport. “As long as the economy remains hot, housing should remain active.” The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

10 Cities Where Homebuyers are Most Stretched

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Total household debt has increased by $219 billion or 1.6 percent to $13.51 trillion in the third quarter of 2018, according to the latest Quarterly Report on Household Debt and Credit by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.According to an analysis by Realtor.com, these debt burdens vary by the housing market of a city or a region. Keeping this factor in mind, the analysis looked at places where homebuyers were the deepest and least into debt. Realtor.com analyzed the debt-to-income ratios (DTI) that account for all debt owed by mortgage applicants, divided by their pretax income. The team then analyzed mortgages taken out over the first eight months of 2018 and calculated the median debt-to-income ratio for mortgage borrowers in the 200 largest metropolitan areas to get the cities where homebuyers had the most and least debt.The city with homebuyers with most debt was Honolulu, Hawaii, where the median mortgage borrower’s DTI stood at 45.1 percent. With a median home price of more than $600,000, the analysis found that the median household income in Honolulu was at only $81,300 accounting for this disparity.With a median mortgage borrower’s DTI at 43.4 percent and a median home price of approximately $389,000 Riverside, California came in second on the list of cities with homebuyers with the most debt to their name, thanks to a low median income of around $62,000.Cape Coral, Florida, with a median home price of $299,000 and a DTI of 43 percent was third on this list followed by Lakeland, another Florida city and El Paso, Texas, that rounded off the top five cities on this list. Other cities that featured on this list included Stockton, California; McAllen, Texas; Greeley, Colorado; Las Vegas, Nevada; and New York, New York.Huntsville, Alabama topped the list of cities where homebuyers were least stretched, according to the analysis with a DTI of 33.6 percent and a median list price of approximately $259,000. Ann Arbor, Michigan was second on this list, followed by Fayetteville, Arkansas; Durham, North Carolina; and South Bend, Indiana that rounded off the top five on this list. debt DTI Federal Reserve Bank of New York Home Homebuyers household HOUSING Income Realtor.com 2018-11-27 Radhika Ojha Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Tagged with: debt DTI Federal Reserve Bank of New York Home Homebuyers household HOUSING Income Realtor.com Home / Daily Dose / 10 Cities Where Homebuyers are Most Stretched Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Related Articles Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

Forbearance Activity Rate Dips Under 5%

first_img About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Forbearance Activity Rate Dips Under 5% Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The forbearance report from Black Knight’s McDash Flash Forbearance Tracker showed the largest week-over-week decline in forbearance activity since early January. Active plans dropped by 77,000 overall in the week ending Tuesday, March 9.As of that date, 2.6 million homeowners remained in forbearance, which represents 4.9% of all mortgagees. This also marks the first time the forbearance rate has dipped below 5% since early April 2020.What’s impacting the numbers? Black Knight’s Andy Walden reports that the week’s improvement was due to a combination of February month-end expirations as well as the proactive extension and/or removal of borrowers who were set to see their plans expire at the end of March.While scheduled March month-end expirations are down from 1.1 million a week ago, there are still more than 800,000 plans currently listed with March expirations, Walden noted.”This represents a daunting task for servicers as they review upcoming expirations for removal or extension based on recently revised HUD and FHFA’s allowable terms of up to 18 months for early forbearance entrants.”The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced extensions of several measures that the agency says will align COVID-19 mortgage relief policies across the federal government. This announcement, which extends temporary measures (previously set to expire March 31) until the end of June follows the White House’s February 16 moratoria extension applied to all federally backed mortgages through the same period.Said measures include provisions for borrowers with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac-backed mortgages who may be eligible for an additional three-month extension of COVID-19 forbearance, according to a press release. This additional three-month extension allows borrowers to be in forbearance for up to 18 months.Early extension activity suggests servicers continue to approach forbearance plans in three-month increments, with the bulk of would-be March expirations being extended out through June (as it now stands), Black Knight reported.Says Walden/Black Knight, “With more than 800,000 plans still listed with March month-end expirations we’ll be watching the numbers closely over the next few weeks for elevated levels of removal and extension activity.” Home / Daily Dose / Forbearance Activity Rate Dips Under 5% Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Loss Mitigation, News Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Gap Widens Between Demand and Inventory Next: Why Nonwhite Neighborhoods Could Face Increased Flood Risk The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
