Improved conditions in Q2 were driven by increases in consumer spending and residential and nonresidential investments, combined with a waning drag from net exports, according to Fannie Mae. In the July Economic Outlook, Fannie Mae expects the economy to pick up to an annualized rate of 2.8 percent in Q2, which is 0.4 percentage points higher than the June estimate.Despite volatile economic conditions overseas that could pose headwinds to the U.S. economy, the ESR Group’s estimate for full-year economic growth in July is an annualized rate of 2.1 percent, up from June’s forecast of 1.9 percent, according to Fannie Mae.”Our second-half outlook is little changed overall, but we have upgraded our full-year outlook due to the upward revision to first-quarter GDP and our more optimistic view for the second quarter,” Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan said. “We believe consumer spending will be the largest contributor to growth for the remainder of the year, particularly as consumers’ confidence, household net worth, and income growth prospects have continued to strengthen amid an improving jobs market. On the downside, the drop in oil prices will likely continue to weigh on nonresidential investment in structures, and on balance we expect net exports to be a drag on growth this year, due in large part to the debt crisis in Greece and deteriorating economic conditions in China.”Duncan said Fannie Mae’s housing outlook is largely unchanged in the July forecast, with leading housing indicators such as housing starts, mortgage rates, single-family home sales, existing home sales, and single-family mortgage originations pointing to “continued improvement” into the summer.”We expect to see strong sales, lean inventories, and rising confidence through the rest of the year, which should support increased home building activity and give an added boost to economic growth,” Duncan said. “Although a lack of skilled labor may hurt construction activity, our forecast calls for housing starts to average 1.12 million units. We expect existing and new home sales to climb by approximately 5 and 25 percent, respectively, and total mortgage originations to rise approximately 24 percent to $1.46 trillion, with a refinance share of 47 percent.”Click here to see Fannie Mae’s July 2015 Housing Forecast; click here to see the Economic Forecast; click here to see Economic Developments.

During a press conference today in Austin, Texas, HUD Deputy Secretary Pamela Hughes Patenaude and Governor Greg Abbott announced that $5.024 billion in relief were headed deep into the heart of Texas, courtesy of HUD’s Community Development Block Grant – Disaster Recovery (CDBG-DR) Program.HUD Secretary Ben Carson said:As President Trump has said from the beginning, the whole federal family is with the people of Texas to help them recover from this devastating storm as quickly as possible. HUD will work with Governor Abbott and his staff to do whatever is needed to rebuild damaged homes and to restore shuttered businesses in some of the hardest-hit areas of the State.Governor Abbott said:The urgency with which our federal partners are addressing the needs of Texans following Harvey is exactly what is needed to help them rebuild their lives. I thank Secretary Carson, Deputy Secretary Patenaude, and the Trump Administration for working on behalf of Texans who have been hardest hit and in need of immediate aid. Our goal from the start has been work in conjunction with federal and local leaders to help Texans repair and rebuild as quickly as possible, and this funding is a good start that brings us one step closer to achieving that goal.This grant follows on President Trump’s September 8 signing of the Continuing Appropriations Act, 2018 and the Additional Supplemental Appropriations for Disaster Relief Requirements Act, 2017, which set aside $7.4 billion in funding for major 2017 disasters. HUD is responsible for dispensing the funds, based “the number of seriously damaged homes lacking adequate insurance and businesses that failed to qualify for SBA’s disaster loan program,” as determined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency  and the Small Business Administration.HUD determined that over 230,000 homes were damaged by Hurricane Harvey, of which approximately 65,000 and more than 4,000 businesses are not adequately covered by insurance or other programs.Texas Senator John Cornyn said:Texans hit hardest by Hurricane Harvey face unprecedented hurdles as they rebuild their homes and businesses, and these funds will help them move forward after the storm. I’m grateful for the support Texas has received from Secretary Carson, and I look forward to continuing my work with Senator Cruz, the Texas delegation, and Governor Abbott to ensure Texans aren’t left behind.

Five percent of the respondents admitted that they had no opinion or familiarity with their homeowners’ insurance agent.”The findings highlight the perception of passiveness of some agents, which may have contributed to the image of paper pushers and transactional middlemen associated with some agents,” ValueInsured said.ValueInsured also asked the respondents if their insurance agent demonstrated any other positive traits. Only 21 percent reported them to be innovative and 14 percent said they were resourceful, the survey found.The survey said that homeowners wished their agent could be more proactive, consultative, and could do more to protect them and their properties. “Currently, the relationship is not an engaging or high-touch one, which could lead to high turnover rate,” it revealed.With the recent natural disasters, homeowners insurance has taken center stage, giving agents a window to proactively reach out to homeowners. According to a recent report from Urban Institute, with the number of flood insurance policies in force through the National Flood Insurance Program decreasing in the past 10 years, many homeowners are left without flood insurance, sitting at just over 5 million in 2018. Even with private policies playing an increased role in the future, the current system leaves too many homeowners vulnerable when disaster strikes, the research found.Read more about the reach of flood insurance:Analyzing the Reach of Flood Insurance Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

Among the high price tier that comprises about 9 percent of the market, prices appreciated at a rather gradual pace at 1.7 percent.The market by price tier and by metro areas revealed that it is becoming more bifurcated, pointing out to a possible likelihood of a continued housing boom. AEI indicated that buyers are moving away from larger cities, shifting the demand to smaller or medium-sized areas, wherein HPA has lagged behind.According to the report for Q3 2018, the national house price boom continued in November 2018, even though at a slow pace at 25 quarters currently. According to its House Price Appreciation (HPA) index, 73 metro areas recorded an increase of 5 percent in November 2018 on an annual basis—a decline from 7.4 percent around the same period the previous year. There was a slight pullback in the purchase transactions during the most recent quarter, on the demand side, per the report. Sales transactions of 6.37 million were reported for the four quarters ending in Q3 2018. However, sales transactions declined by 0.6 percent in the third quarter—marking the 1st quarter of decreasing sales since 2014, the report pointed out. Despite this, the national seller’s market continued and now stands at 75 consecutive months, it found. On the inventory side, the month’s inventory in the 73 large metros stood at 3.6 months—data that is indicative of a strong seller’s market. There was a modest rise in the month’s inventory for the low (up 0.4 months to 2.8 months) in terms of price tiers. Low-med reflected an upward trend at 2.6 months. The med-high is at 4.2 months while the high stood at 7.6 months, both reflecting a considerable increase despite the cyclical lows, the report said. The report pointed out a continued rise in mortgage risk in September 2018. The composite Purchase National Mortgage Risk Index (NMRI) was up 0.4 percentage point from September 2017, it indicated. The report also found a pull back on home prices in the high-cost segment outside of the reach of government agencies, which tend to be more affected by rising mortgage rates, and in high-cost metros, especially on the West Coast.

The Rise of Built-for-Rent Homes

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago August 8, 2019 1,874 Views Related Articles Homebuyers Homeowners mortgage NAHB SFR Single Family Rental single-family housing 2019-08-08 Radhika Ojha  Print This Post Some builders are redefining the path to homeownership through new detached rental products. According to a post on the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB’s) Best in American Living blog, renting by choice–instead of owning outright–is becoming increasingly popular among millennials.The blog said that this was where newly constructed built for-rent single-family homes came into the picture. These homes, according to the blog, present millennials “with a terrific opportunity to live the American dream–without the additional responsibilities and stress of homeownership.”The blog indicated that one of the key reasons for the rise of these built-for-rent homes was diminishing affordability.The post, written by BSB Design, said that transitioning from a multifamily property to a single-family home was a “move-up” solution for families that desired “to have the flexibility to travel, live a low maintenance lifestyle, or avoid financial burdens.”Additionally, single-family rental homes offered advantages like a backyard as well as enhanced privacy without the expenses associated with homeownership like mortgages, down payment, or maintenance. “As rentals, these single-family products use high-quality interior finishes and materials to mitigate potential damage, and those finishes just feel more luxurious in a detached product,” said Rick Henry, Senior Principal of BSB Design in the blog. “For young families looking to grow, single-family rentals often offer more space.”Citing a survey by John Burns Real Estate Consulting, the blog indicated that 65% of single-family rentals offer three or more bedrooms compared to 11% of apartments.“The statistics also illustrate myriad benefits for builders, developers and property managers,” Henry observed. “First, diversifying product offerings is always a good thing, especially with waning single-family sales numbers of late. Developers appreciate the market penetration these rental homes achieve, allowing them to target younger newlyweds, families and even retirees. And finally, with a lower turnover rate for tenants compared to traditional multifamily rentals, property managers can earn premium rents.” Sign up for DS News Daily Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.

According to NAR in May, the case misrepresents NAR’s rules, “which have long been recognized by the courts across the country as protecting consumers and creating competitive, efficient markets that benefit home buyers and sellers.”Among the case rulings NAR has moved to dismiss is 2008’s U.S. v. National Association of Realtors. According to DOJ’s response to the motion, NAR inaccurately portrays the “express permission” that DOJ provided its MLS compensation rules in the settlement.“In that case, the United States did not examine the rest of NAR’s policies, including those at issue here, and therefore those policies simply were not subjected to antitrust scrutiny,” the statement reads. “Importantly, those other policies were in no sense analyzed and found consistent with antitrust laws.” “It’s hard enough to get a dismissal on an antitrust lawsuit anyway but, with the Department of Justice weighing in like that, there’s no way,” Rob Hahn, a managing partner at real estate consultancy 7DS Associates said on Forbes. “The thing is, you read between the lines, and I get the strong feeling that if the DOJ were to look at [the 2008 case] today, chances are they’re not going to come out with positive, glowing reviews of the current compensation rules.”Forbes reports that Mantill Williams, NAR’s VP of communications, says the group stands by its interpretation of the 2008 settlement.“The MLS system promotes a pro-consumer, pro-competitive market for home buyers and sellers, contrary to the claims of these class-action attorneys,” Williams said. “We believe we have always accurately described the implications of the consent decree we agreed to in 2008. Regardless, the MLS system creates competitive, efficient markets that benefit home buyers and sellers as well as small business brokerages.” Home / Daily Dose / Latest on National Association of Realtors’ Legal Battle Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribecenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Other states leading the nation in REOs include Michigan (333,312), Texas (323,806), Illinois (312,057) and Georgia (304,964).Metropolitan statistical areas with a population greater than 200,000 that saw a year-over-year increase in REOs included Honolulu, Hawaii (up 34%); Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (up 28%); Florence, South Carolina (up 18%); Buffalo, New York (up 16%); and San Luis Obispo, California (up 9%).On a broader level, however, REO activity has been dropping significantly across the U.S. The nation saw 493,066 foreclosure filings in 2019, representing 0.36% of all U.S. housing units, down from 0.47% in 2018.ATTOM’s report includes default notices, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions as foreclosure filings, which were down 21% from 2018 and down 83% from a peak of nearly 2.9 million in 2010.Repossessions dropped as well in 2019, down 37% from 2018 to 143,955 total properties.“The continued decline in distressed properties is one of many signs pointing to a much-improved housing market compared to the bad old days of the Great Recession,” said Todd Teta, Chief Product Officer for ATTOM Data Solutions. “That said, there is some reason for concern about the potential for a change in the wrong direction, given that residential foreclosure starts increased in about a third of the nation’s metro housing markets in 2019. Nationally, the number also ticked up a bit in December. While that’s not a major worry, it’s something that should be watched closely in 2020.”Foreclosure starts were down 9% year over year in 2019, to 335,985. States that saw the largest declines in foreclosure starts from last year included Nevada (down 30%); New York (down 28%); New Jersey (down 21%); California (down 13%; and Arizona (down 11%).“With foreclosure inventory down and interest in that inventory up, it’s a good time for sellers with distressed inventory to sell while the sun shines,” said Daren Blomquist, VP of Market Economics with Auction.com. “Foreclosure buyers still enjoy sizable discounts below estimated market value due to the distressed nature of foreclosure inventory, but the average sales price for foreclosure auction properties sold through the Auction.com platform rose to a new record high in 2019 even as the rate of sales to third-party buyers increased.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Loss Mitigation, News About Author: Seth Welborn Tagged with: default Foreclosure REO Foreclosure Trends, State by Statecenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Housing’s Role in Economic Success Next: FHFA: PACE Loans a Threat to GSEs?
