Competition increased in all 22 markets in which Redfin has a presence. However, the rate is still down significantly from the 70 percent recorded in January 2013.While Redfin anticipates competition will be “a prominent fixture” in the housing market in the short-run, the brokerage expects declining demand and rising inventory to keep competition at bay later in the year. Rising prices prevent many home shoppers from feeling that they are “getting a deal,” according to Redfin, and low inventory is discouraging to some shoppers as well.The average home sold in January sold for 0.9 percent lower than the asking price, according to Redfin. Just two of the 22 markets observed reported the average home selling for more than the asking price: San Jose, California, and San Francisco, California, where about half of homes sold for more than the asking price. The average home in San Jose sold for 2.9 percent above its asking price, while the average home in San Francisco sold for 2.1 percent above its asking price.

Yearly Asking Price Gains Slow Despite Solid Monthly, Quarterly Gains

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Yearly Asking Price Gains Slow Despite Solid Monthly, Quarterly Gains  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Construction Home Prices Price Gains Trulia 2014-05-09 Colin Robins May 9, 2014 725 Views Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Nationally, asking prices rose 0.8 percent month-over-month in March and 2.8 percent quarter-over-quarter in April. Yet asking prices rose a mere 9.0 percent year-over-year, the smallest gain in 11 months according to an analysis of data from Trulia’s Price Monitor and Rent Monitor. With monthly and quarterly increases holding steady, why are yearly increases slipping?One reason for the slippage is from a large price spike during the housing recovery in February and April of 2013, according to Trulia’s chief economist Jed Kolko. Year-over-year changes in April 2014 no longer include these elevated months, dropping yearly asking price numbers.Excluding foreclosures, asking prices are still relatively similar without the population of foreclosures. Trulia’s Price Monitor noted that monthly and quarterly gains were the same at 0.8 and 2.8 percent, respectively. Year-over-year gains were slightly less at 8.4 percent.Another reason cited by the company is a lag in construction, especially in housing markets with the biggest price rebounds. “The housing markets with the largest year-over-year asking-price increases in April 2014 were Riverside-San Bernardino, Las Vegas, Oakland, Sacramento, and Detroit, all of which are rebounding from steep price declines during the housing bust. However, big price rebounds are no guarantee that a local housing market has recovered,” Kolko said.Furthermore, construction permit data for 2013 from the U.S. Census revealed that markets with the largest price rebounds are still lagging in construction activity. Kolko notes that even cities experiencing the largest booms in construction, metros like New York, Boston, or San Francisco, are for multi-unit buildings to be rented for apartments, not sold as condos.”Nearly all of the markets where asking prices rose most year-over-year still have much less construction than what’s normal for those markets. Instead, builders are building in markets that avoided the worst of the bust and are therefore not having big price rebounds today,” Kolko said.The slowdown of yearly price gains could be problematic for recent sellers, who are increasingly pricing their homes above market value in an effort to capitalize on what they perceive to be a seller’s market.

Foreclosures Hit 10-Year Low, Despite April Uptick

first_img Foreclosures Hit 10-Year Low, Despite April Uptick Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Black Knight Financial Services, a provider of integrated technology, data, and analytics solutions, released its First Look at April’s mortgage performance Wednesday. The total national loan delinquency rate (loans 30 or more days past due, but not in foreclosure), spiked 13 percent from March putting a little over 2 million properties past due, however Black Knight said there is no need for alarm. The rise is primarily due to the calendar.Due to the month ending on a Sunday, servicers were unable to process payments the last two days of the month. Typically, for this reason, all months ending on a Sunday cause a spike in delinquencies. Additionally, March is known to be the calendar year low for mortgage delinquencies, triggering a rise coming into April.Past due mortgage accounts went up by roughly 241,000 from March, however, 227,000 of those were early stage delinquencies meaning they were 30 days past due. Based on previous months that follow a Sunday ending, May should be a near, but likely not complete, reversal in April’s delinquencies.Active foreclosures are continuing to fall, hitting a 10-year low of 433,000. Similarly, at 52,800, monthly foreclosure stops were the fewest since January 2005. Prepay speeds, typically a good indicator of refinance activity, fell by 11 percent from March.Properties 90 days or more past due, but not in foreclosure were down 8,000 at 581,000, properties in foreclosure pre-sale inventory were down 15,000 to 433,000, and properties 30 days past due or in foreclosure were up 227,000 at 2.5 million.Similar to the March report, by state, Mississippi continues to hold the highest number of delinquent loans at 3.16 percent being over 90 days. Mississippi is followed by Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, and Tennessee.A more detailed review of this data will be available June 5, 2017 in Black Knight’s Mortgage Monitor Report. This report will include an analysis of data supplemented by detailed charts and graphs that reflect trends and point-in-time observations.The report will be available here.

CEO Brian Moynihan and CFO Paul Donofrio delivered the remarks.The bank reported a net income of $5.3 billion, which was a 10 percent increase. Earnings per share also increased at a rate of 12 percent, stopping at $0.46 per share. These numbers are in comparison to previously reported net income of $4.8 billion and an EPS of $0.41. Revenue was also on the rise at a rate of 7 percent, jumping from $21.3 billion to $22.8 billion.Net interest income was reported to be $11.0 billion, an increase of 9 percent, which, according to the bank, is a reflection of the Fed’s increased interest rates and loan grown. Noninterest income was $11.8 billion, an increase of 6 percent. BOA attributes this to higher investment banking fees and the sale of the non-U.S. consumer credit card business.In the realm if consumer banking, total active users on the bank’s mobile app jumped to 22.9 million, an increase of 13 percent, and Merrill Edge brokerage assets were up 21 percent. Loans, deposits, and net income were all up, at $18.6 billion, $56.3 billion, and $2 billion, respectively.”Against modest economic growth of 2 percent, we had one of the strongest quarters in our history. All of our businesses delivered strong results, with several setting new records,” said Brian Moynihan, CEO of Bank of America. “The investments we made to transform how we serve clients produced 500 basis points of operating leverage in the quarter. We achieved our 60 percent efficiency ratio target, and we continued to manage credit risk carefully in line with responsible growth.

Tallying the Foreclosure Damage

first_img  Print This Post Tallying the Foreclosure Damage Home / Daily Dose / Tallying the Foreclosure Damage About Author: Nicole Casperson The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Delinquency rates experienced an increase in Q3 2017 for mortgage loans on one-to-four-unit residential properties, according to the MBA’s National Delinquency Survey. At a seasonally adjusted rate of 4.88 percent of all loans outstanding, the rate was up 64 basis points from Q2 2017 and 36 basis points higher from Q3 2016.Foreclosure action starts represented 0.25 percent of all loans in Q3, a one basis point decrease from the previous quarter and five basis point decrease from a year ago.According to Marina Walsh, MBA’s VP of Industry Analysis, Q3 2017 Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria caused disruptions and destruction in numerous states. Florida, Texas, neighboring states, as well as devastated Puerto Rico, saw substantial increases in their past due rates.“In future surveys, we may see a temporary drop in foreclosure starts in hurricane-impacted states due to storm-related foreclosure moratoria, as was seen during Hurricane Katrina in 2005,” Walsh said.The seriously delinquent rate, which combines loans that are 90 days or more past due with those loans in the process of foreclosure, was 2.52 percent in the third quarter, up 3 basis points from the previous quarter, but 44 basis points lower than one year ago.Mortgage delinquencies increased on a seasonally adjusted basis. The FHA delinquency rate increased to 9.40 percent from 7.94 percent in the second quarter, a 146 basis-point increase and the highest quarter-over-quarter increase reported in the history of our survey.Other delinquency increases included conventional (3.97 percent in Q3 2017, 3.47 percent Q2 2017), and VA (4.24 percent in Q3 2017, 3.72 Q2 2017).”While the storms played a critical factor in explaining the rise in the overall delinquency rate, there are other factors to consider, especially given delinquency rate increases in other states not directly impacted by the storms,” Walsh said.The first factor noted was the timing issues associated with the last day of the month being a Saturday. Second, delinquency rates were already at historic lows in Q2 2017.Meanwhile, other considerable factors include seasonality, rising loan-to-value and debt-to-income ratios for certain product types, normal loan aging, and declining average credit scores on new FHA endorsements since 2014 as the agency has withdrawn from its counter-cyclical role during the crisis.

Study Says: Rising Rates to Marginally Affect Home Buying

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Subscribe  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago February 12, 2018 1,762 Views They may slow down their search for a new home or look for smaller homes, but a very few buyers looking at purchasing a home in 2018 will halt their plans if mortgage rates go beyond 5 percent, according to a study by online brokerage firm Redfin.The study, which was conducted in late 2017 targeted 14 major metro areas across the U.S. and compared the answers of the respondents to a similar study conducted by Redfin in May 2017.According to the findings, only 6 percent of the people surveyed said that they would halt all plans of buying a home if the mortgage rates touched 5 percent or more during the year, showing a modest one-point increase from the earlier survey. In contrast, 27 percent of the respondents said that an increase in interest rates would slow down their home search, down two points from the last survey. The study indicated that 21 percent of the respondents would consider buying a home that was smaller or in another area if the interest rates increased, showing a three-point increase over a similar response in the earlier study. Interestingly, consistent with the number in the last study, 25 percent of the respondents said that an increase in mortgage rates would not impact their plans to buy a home.After remaining under 4 percent for most of 2017, 30-year fixed mortgage rates increased above 4 percent in January and were at 4.32 percent in the first week of February. A robust economy, increase in jobs and a generally sound housing market has economists predicting a hike in Fed rates over the next few months, which would continue the upward trend for mortgage rates. The study also gauged buyer response to the tax bill and how it would impact the economy. High taxes were the most cited response with 38 percent citing this reason among their top three concerns. Affordable housing came a close second with 33 percent respondents citing it as a concern, followed by 28 percent respondents citing the income gap between the rich and the poor as a concern after the tax bill.When asked if they expected home prices in their areas to rise, a majority of the respondents replied in the affirmative. The study indicated that only 6 percent said that they expected a decline in price. More than half (52 percent) respondents said that they expected to home prices to rise slightly while 25 percent expected a significant rise in prices.

Weighing in on Deregulation

first_imgSubscribe About Author: Donna Joseph Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Weighing in on Deregulation There have been endless debates in the political sphere about the pros and cons of deregulation post-recession. The discussions have taken a new turn following mid-term elections wherein the Democrats took over the House of Representatives. In the wake of the House Financial Services Committee, likely to get a new Chair in the form of Rep. Maxine Waters, there is serious speculation on what lies ahead for the banking industry. Waters is reported to have told The Financial Times that “it is critical to bring accountability to the current administration and the regulatory agencies under the committee’s jurisdiction.” Waters also called for increased regulation of the largest U.S. banks in July and pledged tougher fines for financial institutions that take advantage of customers. While deregulation, as she suggests, would help protect consumers from fraud and predatory lending to some extent, the opposition believes that ‘grinding down deregulation may harm economic growth’. According to the committee’s current chair, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, Waters is likely to use her subpoena power much more often, which could end up being a challenge for the heads of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission and the FDIC, or Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. “I fear that she will use this as a tool to harass the administration, to really grind down the deregulation—the deregulatory efforts of the administration,” Hensarling said to FOX Business’ Stuart Varney before the midterm results. “So it’s bad, really bad for economic growth.”Impact on the housing marketThe stewardship of the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP) is an area that is likely to be impacted putting at stake affordable housing legislation. The success of bills such as the Affordable Housing Credit Improvement Act, the New Markets Tax Credit (NMTC) Extension Act, the Historic Tax Credit (HTC) Enhancement Act, and others depending on who wins the House and Senate seats.Chief among the changes that the housing market is likely to see is the possibility of the conservatorship of the GSEs, which is expected to be unwound in the coming years. It is also anticipated that Democrats, under Maxine Waters will agree with the provision of affordable housing funds and offer expanded credit provisions for underserved borrowers-both of which were included in the last bipartisan attempt of the party to end the conservatorship a few years ago.
