Aside from the event scheduled for Chicago on May 27, HOPE NOW has announced borrower outreach events for St. Louis (June 13) and Cleveland (July 11) as part of an effort to focus on the Midwest. HOPE NOW said it plans to host events later in the year in Ft. Lauderdale, Hartford, Memphis, and Los Angeles.“The industry has many tools at its disposal in offering customers the best possible outcome,” HOPE NOW executive director Eric Selk said. “HOPE NOW’s data has shown a consistent trend in the relationship between options offered and foreclosure sales. The good news in this trend is that these efforts point to a correcting market across the board. HOPE NOW’s members have made a special effort to engage borrowers in communities that still lag behind in their housing and economic recovery.”HOPE NOW has hosted outreach events this year in Oakland ans San Bernardino, California, and had considerable support from local leaders and non-profits, Selk said. Both California events hosted about 500 attendees each, with about 50 percent of attendees delinquent on their mortgages and about 25 percent unemployed. About 77 percent of attendees at the Oakland event were reviewed for a permanent home retention solution, compared to about 60 percent in San Bernardino, Selk said. If a home retention solution such as a permanent loan modification cannot be worked out, borrowers are encouraged to consider other non-foreclosure options such as short sales or a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure.In addition to the outreach events for at-risk borrowrs, HOPE NOW’s member organizations will pilot an event focused on new borrower education and homebuying in Anaheim, California, on May 30.“It is hoped that these types of outreach activities, combined with our signature loss mitigation events, will allow our members to better address housing issues at a regional level,” Selk said.HOPE NOW announced that from its creation in 2007 until the end of Q1 2015, the mortgage industry has completed more than 23.7 million non-foreclosure solutions for homeowners, including 7.5 million permanent loan modifications. In the first quarter of 2015, lenders and servicers offered homeowners another 444,000 non-foreclosure solutions, according to HOPE NOW.

Dual Markets

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Dual Markets Home / Daily Dose / Dual Markets Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Realtor.com calls the housing trends of November, a ‘Tale of Two Markets.’Its report detailing the extent of the rise and fall in markets across various metros in the country revealed price cuts in larger metros this month. The report also reflected an increase in inventory and slowing listing prices. Compare this to smaller metros, affordable markets experienced steady price gains.Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com, said, “The housing market is a Tale of Two Cities as the divergence widens between high-cost, large urban areas, and smaller, more affordable markets.” According to the report, U.S. housing inventory is up by 4 percent. It noted a rapid increase in inventory to 9 percent in the nation’s largest and most expensive metros. Markets in the west coast, five of which are in California posted the largest year-over-year inventory increases. The national percentage of listings saw an increase in price reductions to 22 percent in November compared to 19 percent last year. This surge in price reductions is driven by 40 of the 45 top markets, with San Jose, California topped the list with the share of price reductions growing by 16 percent, from 17 percent last year to 33 percent in November. It was followed by Indianapolis (+15 percent), Seattle (+12 percent), San Francisco (+9 percent) and San Diego (+9 percent).The report found that the median U.S. listing price grew 9 percent year-over-year to $293,000 in November, down slightly from October, but higher than last year’s increase of 8 percent.Of the 45 metros, 35 continued to see year over year gains in their median listing price, with only eight markets outpacing the national growth rate at nine percent, which is an indication of gains mainly confined in smaller markets despite rising prices at a national level. Chattanooga, Tennessee (+17 percent), Spokane, Washington (+15 percent), and Greensboro-High Point, North Carolina (+14 percent), are some of the markets that posted the highest year-over-year median list price growth. San Jose, California; and Austin, Texas; recorded a steep decline by four percent.”Buyers in larger metros are seeing more homes on the market and listing prices decline, while those in smaller markets continued to see price increases,” Hale said.

The report included commentary from FHFA Director Mark Calabria, encouraging Congress to act on housing finance reform while also requesting chartering authority similar to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. “There is urgent need for Congress to act on housing finance reform,” Calabria said. “To promote competition in the marketplace, I encourage Congress to authorize additional competitors and provide FHFA the same powers as other federal financial regulators.”Calabria also spoke on the GSEs, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, noting the need to put an end to conservatorship. “The Enterprise conservatorships were established as a short-term measure to address instability and ensure market function during the financial crisis,” Calabria noted. “They are now of unprecedented duration and scope and leave the mortgage market, and American taxpayers, vulnerable to another market downturn. FHFA will set an ambitious agenda that ensures that the mortgage market and FHFA’s regulated entities do not return to pre-financial crisis business models.”Calabria had previously discussed his desire to take the GSEs out of conservatorship, and in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Calabria stated that he wants to out the now-profitable GSEs back into private hands, something that has been tried and failed by lawmakers in the past.“I see my goal as setting a path to end the conservatorship” for the companies he said, adding, “they have to be stronger, healthier companies” compared to before the 2008 housing crisis.“My objective is to get us to a spot where we don’t have to worry about the system blowing itself up,” he addedThe FHFA’s letter includes several recommendations to Congress, including acting on housing finance reform, increasing competition, and strengthening the FHFA’s regulatory powers.Read the FHFA’s full letter to Congress here.
