Meanwhile, tight inventory continues to drive up home prices, and homes continue to fly off the market rather quickly.While home sales were down nearly 27 percent over the month, they were down 7.1 percent from January last year, according to the RE/MAX report, which includes data from 52 metros across the nation.”We usually expect to see fewer home sales in the winter months, but January experienced particularly severe storms in large parts of the country, which disrupted appraisals, inspections and closings,” said Margaret Kelly, CEO of RE/MAX.She added, however, that “the real story for home sales in 2014 will begin to unfold in the coming spring and summer months.”The median home price declined over the month – falling 6.3 percent to $173,475. However, January’s median price continued a 24-month trend of year-over-year increases, rising 11.6 percent since January 2013. Forty-five of the 52 markets observed reported year-over-year home price gains in January.The year-over-year rise in home prices is a reflection of the tight inventory that has persisted into this year, according to RE/MAX. As of January, the market holds 5.3 months’ supply of homes, which is lower than the inventory reported a month ago and a year ago.A few markets are experiencing inventories far below the national average. RE/MAX found the lowest inventories in Denver, Colorado (1.1 month); San Francisco, California (1.4 months); Los Angeles, California (2.5 months); Boston, Massachusetts (2.7 months); San Diego, California (2.7 months); Houston, Texas (2.7 months); and Seattle, Washington (2.7 months).Metros with the greatest yearly home price gains in January include: Detroit, Michigan (35.2 percent); Atlanta, Georgia (28.6 percent); Las Vegas, Nevada (23.5 percent); San Francisco, California (22.3 percent); Los Angeles, California (20.2 percent); and Miami, Florida (18.7 percent).For homes sold in January, the average number of days on market was 75. “The low Days on Market average is associated with continued high demand and a reduced inventory of homes for sale,” according to RE/MAX. in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago February 19, 2014 524 Views About Author: Krista Franks Brocklast_img read more

It was the eighth consecutive quarterly profit for the government-sponsored enterprise (GSE).The report noted the positive quarterly income “contributed to Fannie Mae’s positive net worth of $9.6 billion as of December 31, 2013.”Annual net income for Fannie Mae was $84 billion.The company will pay $7.2 billion in dividends on senior preferred stock to the U.S. Department of the Treasury in March, 2014.  The payment marks “the first time in which the company”s cumulative dividend payments to Treasury will exceed its total draws,” the statement reports.Through the end of December, 2013, Fannie Mae requested cumulative draws totaling $116.1 billion and paid $113.9 billion in dividends to Treasury. The March payment will exceed total Treasury draws.The report comments, “Fannie Mae has not received funds from Treasury since the first quarter of 2012.”Since January 1, 2009, Fannie Mae has provided $4.1 trillion in liquidity to the mortgage market through its purchasing and guaranteeing of loans. The GSE enabled borrowers to complete 12.3 million refinancings, 3.7 million home purchases, and financed 2.2 million units of multifamily housing.Fannie Mae credits the strong earnings of Q4 2013 to stable revenues, credit-related income, and fair value gains. Credit-related income specifically received boosts from an increase in home prices, a decline in the delinquency rate, and “updated assumptions and data used to estimate the company’s allowance for loan losses in 2013.”The report notes further factors in the increased income: “Fannie Mae’s 2013 financial results also were positively affected by the release of the company’s valuation allowance against its deferred tax assets and the large number of resolutions the company entered into during the year relating to representation and warranty matters and servicing matters.”However, the report is cautious about the foreseeable future, noting that while it expects to remain strong in the coming years, net income in the future is expected to drop from 2013.

Single Family Rental Boom Leads to Less Affordable Inventory

According to a new Zillow analysis released Wednesday, this market could be limiting options for lower- and middle-income buyers.Zillow finds that the number of SFR homes grew by over 5 million between 2006 and 2017. In total, about 270,000 fewer homes are sold each year compared to 2006, or about 5 percent of the homes that would sell in a typical year. Additionally, about 120,000 of these lost sales were among the most affordable homes that are often considered by first-time buyers.”For the past 10 years, the number of single-family homes that are rented has grown steadily and remains near the highest levels ever recorded,” said Aaron Terrazas Zillow Senior Economist. “The combination of foreclosures and growing rental demand following the housing crash was an attractive opportunity for investors—large and small—who were able to buy foreclosed homes and use them to meet the rental demand.”At the same time, many long-time owners have opted to hold onto their homes as rentals even after they decide to move somewhere else. According to Terrazas, with such a large portion of single-family homes being rented out, and with new homes being built more slowly than the market needs, home values will continue to rise, particularly among the most affordable homes with the highest demand.Based on the report’s analysis, the renter population increased fast when owners lost their homes to foreclosure following the housing crisis—and the share of SFR homes grew from 13 percent in 2009 to 19.2 percent in 2016. That demand remains strong, as 45 percent of renters would like an SFR home, but only 28 percent could find one to rent.Another factor making the booming SFR market such a concern is millennials. As the largest group of buyers in the market today, this group is enhancing buyers competition for more affordable entry-level homes. However, the report notes that over the last five years, the homes being purchased and converted to rentals are increasingly the same affordable starter homes that first-time buyers are after—therefore limiting buyers’ options and increasing competition.The data shows that nearly 40 percent of SFR homes bought since 2012 are among the most affordable, compared to 34 percent of SFR homes that were bought before the housing market crash.To view the full report, click here.

Unemployment Claims Top 3M

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News March 26, 2020 1,324 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: DS5: Industry Leaders Discuss Trends, Challenges Next: Freddie Mac Ceases Issuing LIBOR Securities Related Articles In the week ending on March 21, there were 3,283,000 claims for insured unemployment, an increase of 3,001,000 from the previous week’s revised level. According to the United States Department of Labor, this is the largest increase in history, as the previous high was 695,000 in October of 1982.“This sudden increase in UI claims reflects the shock to demand in the economy,” said Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “For a large segment of the workforce, the rapidly deteriorating employment situation is due to the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak, as well as the associated policy restrictions and shifts in consumer behavior, both aimed at avoiding infection. We interpret this morning’s release as a strong leading indicator of an expected increase in household financial stress.”Most states cited COVID-19 virus impacts in their unemployment reports. States continued to cite services industries broadly, particularly accommodation and food services. Additional industries heavily cited for the increases included the health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment and recreation, transportation and warehousing, and manufacturing industries.In an effort to mitigate the economic impact of COVID-19, Senate Democrats and Republicans agreed to a stimulus package that totals more than $2 trillion early Wednesday morning. Senate passed th economic relief package Wednesday night; it now heads to the House.”The stimulus bill proposal currently working its way through Congress seeks to address certain features of the UI systems, such as eligibility requirements and the amount and maximum duration of benefits paid, which are intended to help alleviate some of the financial stressed caused by job loss,” Duncan continues. “Furthermore, payments to households are designed to make up for lost earnings. Proposed support for businesses is intended to help them survive the shock to demand in order to be positioned to re-hire workers after the virus subsides and demand picks back up.”Editor’s note: this story is breaking, check back for updates.

Economy ‘Ready to Take Off’ in 2021

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Economy ‘Ready to Take Off’ in 2021 Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Share Save Fannie Mae’s Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group expects the U.S. economy to grow 5.3% in 2021, an upgraded forecast from the 4.5% reported last December. The GSE also issued an improved projection for 2022 at 3.6% growth from 3.2%.Fannie’s dense “Economic & Housing Outlook” report indicates that economic output likely flatlined or even pulled back during the last two months of 2020. But Fannie Mae’s experts expect a reversal of recent softness starting in late spring when growth typically accelerates. Thus, Fannie reported a downgrade to negative 2.7% for forecasted GDP growth as it pushes more recovery further into 2021.”Expanding vaccination efforts, the emergence of warmer weather, and the passing of greater than previously expected fiscal stimulus point to an economy ready to take off once COVID-19-related effects begin to subside,” note the report’s authors (Doug Duncan, SVP and Chief Economist; Mark Palim, VP and Deputy Chief Economist; Eric Brescia, Economist; Nick Embrey, Economist; Rebecca Meeker, Financial Economist, and Richard Goyette, Business Analyst).A successful rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine will accelerate recovery, the researchers said.”COVID-19 remains the dominant force altering the path of the economy through the behaviors of people, businesses, and policymakers,” Duncan said in a press release. “Therefore, the best policy for economic recovery is the broad distribution of an effective vaccine, which is underway. The sooner this can be successfully accomplished the sooner growth can accelerate, and our thought is that by mid-year vaccine distribution efforts will be well-established, allowing for a strong second half.”While the ESR group expects home sales to rise 3.8% in 2021, the monthly pace is likely to slow through much of the year.House price appreciation is expected to slow along a similar timeline.Purchase mortgage originations are expected to rise in 2021 to $1.8 trillion from 2020’s projected $1.6 trillion, while refinance origination activity is forecast at $2.2 trillion in 2021, down from the projected all-time high of $2.8 trillion in 2020. With mortgage rates near historic lows, the authors estimate that 67% of outstanding mortgages have at least a half-percentage point incentive to refinance.The report indicates the housing market will “shift down a gear” after driving the initial phase of economic recovery in latter 2020.”While we forecast that housing demand will continue to be strong, based on an improving labor market and favorable demographic factors, we believe the pace of activity will likely slow over time toward its underlying trend,” the researchers said. “We do not expect mortgage rates to decline further, and inventories of homes for sale remain extremely tight.”The full report is available at FannieMae.com.
