Home Price Index Shows Signs of Losing Momentum

Posted To: MND NewsWire

Home prices in the first quarter of 2018 were 1.7 percent higher than at the end of the fourth quarter of last year. The Federal Housing Finance Agency said its Housing Price Index (HPI) gained 6.9 percent when compared to the level at the end of March 2017.

MBS Day Ahead: Green Shoots? Maybe. Opportunities? You Bet!

Posted To: MBS Commentary

One short week after hitting the worst levels in nearly 7 years there's suddenly a semblance of hope again for bonds. It was one thing to see last Friday's correction--which merely stopped the most abject bleeding--or the first 2 days of indecisive stability this week. It was another thing to see an unmistakably strong rally yesterday followed by even stronger levels today. The critical development over the past 48 hours for US bond markets has been the break below the 3.05% floor that had blocked progress since last Friday. If we wanted to be extra cautious about where we set our technical levels, we could use the previous 4-year ceiling of 3.04% and reserve judgment until bonds broke and closed below. With yields starting out the day well under 3.0%, it seems like there's not...(read more)

The conference this week? I attended various presentations dealing with housing finance and the economy in general. Even in the face of rising rates, the outlook on the housing market is bullish for prices – but with continued inventory problems. Labor shortages and environmental provisions/local zoning are expected to continue to contribute to extended times to complete the construction of new homes. Now that we are a decade past the financial crisis, we are seeing increased non-agency mortgage lending, as reflected through securitizations, and it is expected that the non-QM market will continue its expansion but still small on a relative basis to QM. Demographic factors play a dominant role in the housing market as millennials embrace homeownership, just as we knew they would. Given...(read more)

Housing Recovery Bailed Out 1.4 Million Underwater Homeowners in 2012

Posted by Realty Associated on January 20, 2013 at 11:39am 0 Comments

One of the most significant effects of the nation's housing bust has been the swelling ranks of underwater borrowers trapped in homes worth far less than they are worth.

But thanks to sustained rises in home prices, the number of homeowners stuck in the negative equity trap is dwindling. According to analytics firm CoreLogic, 100,000 borrowers edged into the positive equity territory in the third quarter of 2012, adding to the more than 1.3 million borrowers that…

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau topped off a week of mortgage rule rollouts by launching the agency's guidelines for loan officer and broker compensation Friday.

Among other provisions, the CFPB's final rule keeps originators from steering borrowers into risky and high-cost loans, ends dual compensation from both the consumer and creditor and bans the attachment of mandatory arbitration agreements to mortgage and home equity…
