The rise in 30-day delinquencies brought up the non-current inventory (properties 30-days or more past due or in foreclosure) up by 48,000, up to 2.74 million.Even with the monthly increases, however, 30-day delinquencies were down by 10 percent over-the-year in April and non-current inventory was down by nearly half a million.“April’s rise in delinquencies is indicative of typical seasonality,” said Andy Walden of Black Knight’s Data & Analytics Division. “In most years, delinquencies will hit their calendar year low in March and then gradually climb throughout the summer and fall months. It’s important to remember that, despite this seasonal uptick, delinquencies are still 10 percent below last year’s level and non-current inventory is down 460,000 over the same time period, indicating continued improvement in overall market performance.”April’s total number of foreclosure starts (58,700) was the lowest total for any one month in 10 years. Foreclosure inventory, or the number of residential properties in some state of foreclosure, declined by nearly 6 percent over-the-month and nearly 28 percent over-the-year in April down to 1.17 percent, or about 595,000.The monthly prepayment rate, which is usually a good indicator of refinance activity, declined both over-the-year (7 percent) and over-the-month (3 percent) despite interest rates hovering near three-year lows. This continued a trend from Black Knight’s March 2016 Mortgage Monitor, which reported that more than two-thirds out of the 7.5 million borrowers who are likely eligible to benefit from refinancing were also eligible last year but still did not take advantage of the opportunity.Click here to view the complete First Look at Mortgage Data for April 2016.

Home Prices Up and Not Coming Down Anytime Soon

first_img  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago June 6, 2017 1,642 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) and HPI Forecast for April 2017 was released Tuesday showing home prices up both in year-over-year and month-over-month. The CoreLogic HPI Forecast is a projection of home prices using the CoreLogic HPI and other economic variables. Values are derived from forecasts from a state-level by weighting indices according to the number of owner-occupied households from each state.According to the CoreLogic HPI, prices nationwide, including distressed sales, increased by 6.9 percent year-over-year. Month-over-month sales increased by 1.6 percent in April 2017 compared to March 2017.“Mortgage rates in April dipped back to their lowest level since November of last year, spurring home-buying activity,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “In some metro areas, there has been a bidding frenzy as multiple contracts are placed on a single home. This has led home-price growth to outpace rent gains. Nationally, home prices were up 6.9 percent over the last year, while rent growth for single-family rental homes recorded a 3 percent rise through April, according to the CoreLogic Single-Family Rental Index.”Home prices are predicted to increase by 5.1 percent on a year-over-year basis from April 2017 to April 2018 according to the forecast. On a month-over-month basis, home prices are expected to increase by 0.7 percent from April 2017 to May 2017.“Interest rates on fixed-rate mortgages are down by one-fourth of a percentage point since mid-March, just in time to support the spring home-buying season,” said Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic. “Some metro areas have low for-sale inventory, short time-on-market trends and homes that sell above the list price. Geographically, gains were strongest in the West with Washington and Utah posting double-digit gains.”Washington had the largest change in home prices, coming in at 12 percent HPI change year-over-year. At -3.9 percent, Wyoming’s home prices went down in the month of April.

By June 2018, Delgado had not only added two more firms to her growing business—she had already achieved her yearly goals. She was now thinking of doubling her targets and creating a strategy to achieve them by the end of the year.Life, however, threw her a curveball.Life Is What Happens When You’re Busy Making Plans“My first symptom appeared in February. I went to the doctor and got the tests done. Everything came back fine, so I assumed there was nothing to worry about,” Delgado said. “In June, I received a call from my surgical oncologist inquiring if I was still experiencing those symptoms. When I said that they had not worsened, but were not better either, she suggested I come in for an MRI.”The MRI was followed by a biopsy, and the bad news came soon thereafter—a positive diagnosis for breast cancer.Delgado remembers the day she got her diagnosis. She’d flown out to California from Florida a couple of days ahead for a conference and received the call within 15 minutes of stepping into her room.“I was on the other side of the country, away from everybody I knew,” Delgado said. Her first calls were to her family. The next calls were to her clients.“I had onboarded my latest client in June 2018, barely a month before I received my diagnosis,” Delgado recalled. “When I made those calls to my clients, I thought it was totally fair if some of them bowed out and said that they would like to put the contract on hold.”She was in for a pleasant surprise. “None of them did,” Delgado said. “That made me realize that these people shared my value for doing the right thing.”However, a long and arduous road to recovery lay ahead. Through it all, Delgado said, she was determined not to let her company suffer. Her first hurdle was coming to terms with the fact that what was initially thought to be a stage 0 cancer was in fact more serious.“I initially thought, ‘That’s doable. I’ll work less for a month and then I’ll bounce right back.’ But during the surgery, the doctors realized that I was actually stage 3.”. Even though this was a shock, she remained positive, not only throughout her treatment process but also at work.“By that point, I thought, ‘let’s just do this. I’ll beat this,’” she said.It helped that Delgado had worked hard until her diagnosis to set up a healthy sales pipeline and had built her strategy around what she was going to take up and what she wouldn’t until her health improved.“I opted to put foundational sales—such as building websites, social media presences, etc.—on hold until after the treatment. I decided to only focus on the firms I had and to see through everything I had already begun work on, but not to seek any new leads,” she said.The Road to RecoveryIt’s been a little more than a year after that fateful July evening. Today, Delgado is in remission. She’s completed her surgeries and her chemo, as well as radiation. Her infusions will end in September,  and after that, she will start with one medication for a year.Over this past year of tribulations, Delgado says that she’s not only developed her sense of humor but has also learned that she’s capable of handling much more than she thought was possible.“The most important thing I’ve learned is that we have a choice. When I was going through the worst of it all, I could have buried myself in my room. I could have not worked. I could have felt sorry for myself. But I didn’t,” she said. “Cancer had taken so much from me; those were the things I couldn’t control. I decided I wouldn’t allow it to take away the things that I could control—my happiness and my work.”Giving BackDelgado told DS News she now plans to begin working on a charity to support patients like her get resources she found helpful during her treatment processes. However, organizing charity fundraisers isn’t unfamiliar territory for Delgado.She founded the Puerto Rico Project HOPE after she realized that her efforts to help aid the hurricane-impacted island could reach a much wider audience if she partnered with others.“I was worried after Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico,” she said. “I had family there, and I knew \there was a lot of confusion and that aid wasn’t reaching the people on the island.”Delgado said she asked her extended circle of friends and colleagues to create a “virtual hope box” containing useful items such as batteries, solar-powered cell phone chargers, solar-powered lanterns, food, first aid, and other necessities.The idea was that each person participating in this campaign would be the captain of their fundraising for the number of hope boxes they wished to send to the families. Delgado would then take those supplies to the island and deliver them personally to the families who needed them.Under her new charity initiative, these hope boxes will now be distributed cancer patients, although the contents will be different. “You would be surprised at the amount of information you don’t get,” Delgado said. “Before my surgery, for example, I just researched and Googled and thought of things that would be helpful. About 90% of the things that I purchased were super helpful.”Delgado said that when she brought the items she found to her surgical oncologist, the doctor had never seen most of it before. She offered the example of a “shower shirt,” a garment designed to allow a patient to enjoy the comfort of a shower, even if they need to protect their torso from getting wet. “That’s such a big deal for someone who’s gone through a mastectomy because otherwise you have to shower with towels, and doing that for a month is awful.”Delgado said that she plans to call these new iterations of her hope chests “battle boxes.” In the first phase, Delgado plans to give items for breast cancer patients who undergo surgery. Each box will cost approximately $500. Going forward, she plans to introduce these boxes for patients undergoing chemo as well as those with special needs such as pregnant women. She plans to raise around $5,000 per month in the first phase to get all those patients battle boxes before they go into surgery. The box will also contain easily digestible information about their diagnosis and the next steps.“I just want to make it a better, easier, less painful experience for those going through this in the future,” she said.last_img read more

Top 10 States for Inbound Migration

New Jersey, which, with 70% outbound in 2020, has held the top spot for exits for the past three years.According to the Van Lines information, top states for inbound migration included South Carolina (64%), Oregon (63%), South Dakota (62%) and Arizona (62%), while New York (67%), Illinois (67%), Connecticut (63%) and California (59%) were among the states experiencing the “largest exoduses.”In addition to numbers, United Van Lines collects information about customers’ reasons for leaving.”This year’s survey results indicated 40% of Americans who moved did so for a new job or job transfer (down from prior years), and more than one in four (27%) moved to be closer to family (which is significantly up over prior years).”For customers who cited COVID-19 as an influence on their move, March to October 2020, the top reasons were concerns for personal and family health and wellbeing (60%); desires to be closer to family (59%); 57% moved due to changes in employment status or work arrangement (including the ability to work remotely); and 53% desired a lifestyle change or improvement of quality of life.“United Van Lines’ data makes it clear that migration to western and southern states, a prevalent pattern for the past several years, persisted in 2020,” Michael A. Stoll, Economist and Professor in the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles said. “However, we’re seeing that the COVID-19 pandemic has without a doubt accelerated broader moving trends, including retirement driving top inbound regions as the Baby Boomer generation continues to reach that next phase of life.”New to the 2020 top-10 inbound list are Tennessee at No. 7 and Alabama at No. 8, both with inbound percentages of 60, and Arkansas at No. 10 with 59% inbound, Van Lines reported.Here’s the top ten states for inbound moves:IdahoSouth CarolinaOregonSouth DakotaArizonaNorth CarolinaTennesseeAlabamaFloridaArkansas Previous: Automated Valuation Models: Benefits and Unexpected Challenges Next: The Automatic Stay—The Ultimate Creditor Protection Home / Daily Dose / Top 10 States for Inbound Migration Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

A Pandemic-Era Milestone, Delinquencies Dip Below 5%

first_img  Print This Post Previous: A Look at Home Values in Communities of Color Next: House Passes Measure to Assist the Underbanked Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save Following a significant decline of almost a full percentage point in March, April’s 7.11% dip in mortgage delinquencies might seem a lesser event, but the data analysts at Black Knight say it’s a big deal because it pulled down the delinquency rate to less than 5% for the first time since COVID-19 toppled our lives and economy.”As the economy gets back on track, we’re churning through a lot of the distressed inventory of mortgages,” Black Knight reports. “At the current rate of improvement, overall delinquencies should be back to pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2021.”While Black Knight’s First Look at April 2021 Mortgage Performance report gave some cause for optimism—while rising 23% from March, delinquencies are down 33% from April 2019—it also contains some concerning stats. While serious delinquencies also saw strong improvement (-151,000 month-over-month), nearly 1.8 million such serious delinquencies remain, which is four times as many as we’ve seen prior to the pandemic.The vast majority of those serious delinquencies are in forbearance. The next two fiscal quarters will determine what that will mean for default servicing.”As of right now, it looks as though the end of Q3 and the beginning of Q4 will be an inflection point in terms of our understanding of how the post-forbearance world will shake out,” Black Knight reports, “Until then, all improvement is welcome news.”With moratoria still in place and robust borrower participation in forbearance plans, both foreclosure starts and active foreclosure inventory hit new record lows once again in April, says Black Knight. The month saw some 3,700 starts and only 153,000 active foreclosures.Foreclosures remain at record lows because the nation and local municipalities alike have implemented and continually extended foreclosure bans and forbearance allowances.Actions taken by the government to offset record delinquencies have been beneficial to U.S. homeowners, but as deadlines and a more typical borrower behavior ensue following a vaccine rollout, the default servicing side of the industry is preparing to be hit with daunting volumes.In a recent DS News webinar, Flagstar’s Courtney Thompson pointed out that a whole population new to the delinquency side, was born of the COVID-19 fallout, and she said the industry needed to find a way to handle this emerging market.“We had a whole new group of humans that were in default and entered into the delinquency process,” Thompson said at the time. “This was not your traditional default consumer … these are consumers who are not used to navigating the different channels of default, whether it’s forbearance, loss mitigation, or a repayment plan.” Thus, panelists at that table agreed that communication between borrower and lender is key.In the loan performance report, Black Knight also reported that mortgage prepayments fell nearly 23% in April to their lowest level since May 2020. This, according to the analysts, reflects the impact of interest rate spikes on refinancing activity earlier this year.As Black Knight’s April Originations Market Monitor report showed, rate locks have fallen further over the past month, suggesting limited prepay volumes in the months to come.
