Once they do, they can stop worrying about whether they have enough staff, and they can rest assured that their critical processes will be completed on time and within budget.”San Diego-based ClosingCorp, a leading provider of residential real estate closing cost data and technology for the mortgage and real estate services industries, has announced that it is enhancing its SmartFees® service by incorporating the CoreLogic Property Tax Estimator.

This management tool gives lenders the control, visibility and context they need to manage and improve the borrower experience.This integration will help customers of LendingQB survey every borrower within 24 hours of closing. Direct, instant borrower feedback, along with deep insights about the loan process and the people involved, will enable lenders to pinpoint sources of borrower dissatisfaction and quickly take corrective action. MortgageSAT scores everyone (the loan officer, processor, underwriter, and closer) and measures the borrower’s perception of the entire loan process with analysis by region, branch, and the individual employee. The MortgageSAT program launched recently with select lenders across the country.Through this integration, lenders who were previously limited to measuring success based only on internal measurements and historical results will now have access to benchmarking data that shows how their satisfaction and Net Promoter Score (NPS) compare to their peers. MortgageSAT’s National Benchmark data is available 24/7 in a real-time web portal.  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Kristina Brewer Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago 2018-07-19 Kristina Brewer The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Nationwide Affordability Problems

first_imgSubscribe Related Articles July 31, 2019 998 Views Home / Daily Dose / Nationwide Affordability Problems Nationwide Affordability Problems The affordability problems that began on the coast have spread to the rest of the country, according to Bloomberg. Prices have risen faster than incomes, and many potential buyers have felt pushed out of the market.Las Vegas, for example, has seen a decline in sales as low-end affordability disappears. Most single family starter homes, Bloomberg notes, have been purchased by investors and turned into rentals, leaving the entry-level home inventory dry.According to the latest CoreLogic Case-Shiller U.S. National HPI (HPI), Las Vegas led the nation with a 6.4% year-over-year price increase, and was followed by Phoenix’s 5.7% increase. CoreLogic states that seven of the 20 cities in the composite reported higher price increases in the year ending May 2019 than the year ending April 2019.“Our inventory is clogged up, causing a backup of people that want to buy,” said Thomas Blanchard, President Elect of the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors.. “It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, nobody is willing to move anywhere because they’re afraid they won’t find a house to buy.”“All signs point to a housing market that should be doing really well and it’s not,” said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for Realtor.com on Bloomberg. “The No. 1 constraint, despite low mortgage rates, is that people can’t find housing that they feel is affordable.”Bloomberg notes that in recent months, price growth has been diverging between high and low priced homes. Prices in the bottom third jumped about 9% in June from a year earlier, compared with 1.1% growth for the top third, data from Redfin show. Meanwhile, sales for lower-priced homes plunged almost 20% as buyers struggled to find properties in their range, according to Zillow.First-time homebuyers are feeling particularly left out, as affordable starter homes are increasingly disappearing. Demand has been hit by a pullback in foreign buyers, new federal limits on property-tax deductions, as well as recession fears. This has led many renters have felt cautious about buying.“People do at this point in the cycle start getting a little panicked that they need to get into the market,” said Jenny Schuetz, a fellow in the Metropolitan Policy Program at the Brookings Institution. “And, with lower mortgage rates, a lot of people who were on the fence between renting and owning, may look at owning.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Affordability Las Vegas Sales  Print This Post Previous: Interest Rates Cut for the First Time in a Decade Next: Home Flipping by City Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily center_img Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

The Fed: No Changes to Interest Rates

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. The Federal Reserve announced that it would not lower the benchmark rate any further than its current range of 1.5% to 1.75%, ending a string of cuts to interest rates. In its official announcement, the Fed stated, “the current stance of monetary policy is appropriate to support sustained expansion of economic activity.” The Fed’s decision to not slash interest rates comes just days after the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed the U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs in November, with the unemployment rate holding steady at 3.5%. “It’s a significant surprise because economists were ready to go with the idea that payroll growth was slowing down because the job market had gotten tight,” said Stephen Stanley, Chief Economist at Amherst Pierpont in an interview with Bloomberg. “The whole tenor has changed in terms of job growth. We’re back at steady-as-she-goes at a robust pace.”Projections from the Fed now indicate that the current interest rate environment is enough to sustain growth, as there are no plans to cut rates in 2020. The Fed most recently cut rates in October to its current standing of 1.5% to 1.75%—the third time in 2019 rates were cut. “Global central banks maintain accommodative stances in their monetary policies, focused on steering economies away from a recessionary precipice,” said George Ratiu, Senior Economist, realtor.com on Wednesday’s announcement. Ratiu said the most was anticipated by investors and that mortgage rates are expected to remain consistent in the months ahead. “Rates are over 100 basis points below last year, providing wind in the sails for homebuyers,” Ratiu said. “However, the sharp contraction in the number of homes available for sale across all price ranges has dampened the housing momentum.” CNBC also reported that just four of the 17 members anticipated a one quarter-point increase in 2020. Projections past next year point to a return to increases, as forecasts call for the average interest rate in 2021 to be 1.9% and 2.1% in 2022.

Next: Iowa Gov.: Foreclosure Moratoriums Will Not be Extended Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Black Knight will release the latest numbers surrounding forbearance on Friday. Volumes of forbearance plans have flattened, according to the latest data from Black Knight. As of May 26, 4.76 million homeowners are in forbearance plans, with a net increase of just 7,000 new forbearance plans since last week.At these levels, mortgage servicers need to advance a combined $3.6 billion a month to holders of government-backed mortgage securities on COVID-19-related forbearances. That’s on top of the $1.5 billion in T&I payments they must make on behalf of borrowers.P&I advance payments have been capped at four months for servicers of GSE-backed mortgages. Given today’s number of loans in forbearance, servicers of GSE-backed loans still face up to $8.8 billion in advances over that four-month period.According to a survey from LendingTree, most homeowners who have been approved for a mortgage forbearance may not need one. Of the 25% of homeowners surveyed that applied, 80% were approved for a forbearance. However, while the majority of people who applied were approved, only 5% said they wouldn’t have been able to pay their mortgage without forbearance. Another 72% of those who received forbearance reported feeling at least a little guilty about it.The nationwide delinquency rate hit its highest single-month increase in history in April, according to the First Look at April mortgage performance data from Black Knight. According to Black Knight, some 3.6 million homeowners were past due on their mortgages as of the end of April (including the roughly 211,000 who were in active foreclosure)—the highest number since January 2015.This is an increase of 1.6 million since March, the largest single-month jump on record. This number includes homeowners past due on mortgage payments who are not in forbearance, as well as those currently enrolled in forbearance plans and who did not make an April mortgage payment.The national delinquency rate nearly doubled to 6.45% from March, the largest single-month increase ever recorded, and nearly three times the previous record for a single month from back in late 2008. Delinquency increases in Nevada (+5.2%), New Jersey (+5.1%), and New York (+4.9%) led the states, while Miami (+7.2%), Las Vegas (+6.2%), and New York City (+5.4%) topped the 100 largest metro areas.

Trio of Storms Raise Concerns on Potential Property Damage

first_imgMother Nature is adding to the chaos of 2020 with three storms churning simultaneously in the Pacific, Caribbean, and the Gulf of Mexico, and their respective arrivals signal the 2020 hurricane season could be more aggressive than usual.In the Pacific, Hurricane Douglas was upgraded to a Category 3 hurricane Thursday by the National Hurricane Center (NHC), with sustained winds of 120 mph. As of July 23, Douglas is roughly 1,470 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii, with the NHC forecasting a “gradual weakening” by Friday when it arrives in Hawaii.In the Caribbean, Tropical Storm Gonzalo made history as the earliest named seventh storm in a season that traditionally begins June 1 and stretches to November 30. Gonzalo is expected to be upgraded to hurricane status and the NHC recorded a system with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph located roughly 910 miles east of the southern Windward Islands. A hurricane watch is now in effect for Barbados and St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and it is uncertain at this point in time if the U.S. mainland will be impacted.There is also a tropical depression that is slowly gaining strength in the Gulf of Mexico. If this system achieves wind speed of 39 mph, it would be named Tropical Storm Hanna, making it the earliest recorded eighth storm in a hurricane season. NHC forecasters predict Hanna could produce between three to eight inches of rain when it arrives along with the Gulf Coast communities in Texas and Louisiana.While it is too early to determine what degree of damage the three storms will have to U.S. properties, increased storm activity is not expected to abate. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicted this year’s hurricane season has a 60% chance of being “above-normal,” with between 13 and 19 named storms, between six and 10 hurricanes, and between three and six major hurricanes.What does this mean for the housing market? A recent report by CoreLogic estimated that storm surges from the 2020 hurricane season could wreak havoc on more than 7 million U.S. properties, with a potential of $1.7 trillion in reconstruction costs for single-family homes and $95 billion for multifamily residences. The Insurance Information Institute has stated the average loss per property due to flooding is roughly $45,000, although properties in coastal Texas that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey in 2017 carried an average flood loss of approximately $117,000 per property.Complicating matters is the potential disappearance of flood insurance from homes that are below the required elevation levels set by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). A recent ValuePenguin report determined that more than 74,000 properties sitting below FEMA’s required elevation have National Flood Insurance Program policies that are set to expire later this year. And while he average claim on one of these homes over the past decade was $51,000, non-compliant properties made tens of millions of dollars of claims during nine of the past 10 years.
