New Report Says 2013 GSE Revenue ‘Will Not be Repeated’

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Strong fourth-quarter 2013 earnings by Freddie Mac capped a year of unprecedented financial gains for the government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs), but reflect several one-time items, according to a release issued by Fitch Ratings.Fitch comments, “While results of the type posted in 2013 will not be repeated, Fitch Ratings expects increased guarantee fees (g-fees) and improving mortgage credit quality to support continued profitability for the GSEs this year.”The dividends paid by both Fannie and Freddie total $15.4 billion more than total Treasury draws, with no mechanism currently in place to reduce the amount of senior preferred stock outstanding.The release notes the substantial 2013 revenue brought in by the two companies was not likely to be repeated, due to “significant nonrecurring items related to deferred tax allowance (DTA) valuation reversals, private label RMBS lawsuit settlements, increased representation and warranty settlements, and sizeable decreases in loan loss reserves, which were mainly driven by improvements in the housing market and better asset quality.”Fitch believes that net income will shrink in 2014, as mandated reductions in GSE on-balance sheet assets will push spread income downwards.The Treasury is expected to draw more frequently, according to Fitch Ratings, due to the GSE’s capital reserve buffers being reduced.”The buffers dropped from $3.0 billion in 2013 to $2.4 billion in 2014 for each of the GSEs and will eventually be reduced to zero by 2018,” Fitch said.The remaining availability under the Treasury agreement for Fannie Mae is $117.6 billion. Freddie Mac’s availability is slightly higher at $140.5 billion.The release noted that the settlement of legal claims could remain a potential source of earnings in 2014, although lower than earnings from settlements in 2013.

Using a metric known as the Leading Index of Healthy Housing Markets (LIHHM), Nationwide said the health of the overall housing market in the United States suggest there is little reason to believe that another downturn will occur in housing during the coming year. The LIHHM is a data-driven view of the near-term performance of housing markets based on current health indicators for the national housing market and 373 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). LIHHM ratings focus on the entire housing market and not just prices or sales, according to Nationwide.The national LIHHM was reported to be 109.8 for Q4 2014, a modest increase from the previous quarter and its highest level since 2001, the earliest available data. According to Nationwide, a value of 100 for the LIHHM suggests a healthy housing market, and the likelihood of a downturn decreases the higher the value climbs above 100.”In the fourth quarter, the employment, mortgage market, and house price growth components of the LIHHM remained positive,” Nationwide wrote in the report. “Household formations increased at a faster pace, but a continued tight mortgage lending environment remains an impediment to even stronger national housing activity.”Regionally, none of the nation’s 40 largest MSAs received a “negative” LIHHM rating. The only two MSAs that received a negative rating were Bismarck, North Dakota, and Atlantic City, New Jersey, and those two were close to being “neutral.” Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Philadelphia were the MSAs that received the healthiest LIHHM ratings, according to Nationwide.

House Committee on Appropriations Aims For More Oversight, Transparency for CFPB

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Republican-led House Committee on Appropriations has introduced its Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Services bill, which includes provisions for more oversight for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), according to an announcement from the Committee.The bill prioritizes critical national programs to enforce U.S. laws, including the Treasury Department, the Judiciary, the Small Business Administration, the Security and Exchange Commission, and other agencies. The bill provides annual funding in the total amount of $20.2 billion for those agencies, which is $1.3 billion lower than the fiscal year 2015 enacted level and $4.8 billion below the budget amount requested by the President, according the Committee.“Every day, Americans are making tough decisions about their own budgets and rightfully expect federal agencies to do the same. While it reflects a very tight budget, this bill makes investments to support economic growth and job creation through our small businesses, and to protect our citizens by strengthening the enforcement of laws and the administration of justice,” Financial Services Subcommittee Chairman Ander Crenshaw (R-Florida) said. “In addition, the bill reduces funding for nonessential areas, and holds the Administration and the Internal Revenue Service more accountable to the taxpayer.”For the CFPB, the bill includes a provision that will bring the agency under the annual Congressional appropriations process. Currently, the CFPB is funded directly by the Federal Reserve. According to the Appropriations Committee, the change will allow for increased accountability and transparency of the Bureau’s activities as well as the use of taxpayer money.The new bill also calls for extensive reporting on the CFPB’s activities. A longtime Republican criticism of the Bureau is the lack of Congressional oversight and that the Bureau is run by a single director instead of a board despite the fact that it is funded by the Fed. The Appropriations Committee bill is one of several introduced this year that calls for more transparency and Congressional oversight regarding the CFPB.“This is an important bill that will invest in programs to maintain the fundamental fabric of our nation – a just judicial system, an open marketplace that allows a fair and level playing field for all, and to provide opportunities for businesses large and small to thrive,” House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Kentucky) said. “While making good use of limited tax dollars, this legislation also makes great strides in reining in wasteful spending, and stopping harmful and unnecessary bureaucratic overreach.” CFPB Congressional Oversight Consumer Financial Protection Bureau House Committee on Appropriations 2015-06-11 Brian Honea The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

The agency is still predicting, as it did in May and April, that the U.S. economy will grow with GDP climbing to 2.7 percent through the remainder of this year. It also projects 2.3 percent growth in 2019, which the agency also has been saying for a couple months.This year’s growth projections are based on “the timing effects of fiscal stimulus,” which Fannie said should fade by late next year.“Our growth forecast continues to reflect our 2018 theme: the ongoing stimulus/response of fiscal policy and resulting tightness of monetary policy,” said Doug Duncan, Fannie Mae’s chief economist. “On the heels of a disappointing first quarter, we expect economic growth to accelerate through the remainder of the year before decelerating in 2019.”Duncan said that upswings in consumer spending and nonresidential investment expectations, along with reduced labor market slack, should allow the GDP to grow by nearly 3 percent. But, he said, there are tensions. The Federal Reserve is considering additional rate hikes this year and next. And then there is “the heated rhetoric of protectionism” and the application of tariffs, which Duncan said magnifies the risks on the downside.That said, Duncan added that the country’s continuing tight housing inventory, strong labor market, and positive demographics bode well for single-family home building. “But builders continue to face headwinds from rising costs, which, along with rising interest rates, are also contributing to affordability concerns,” he said.Overall, Fannie said in its June reports that it “sees a mostly balanced upside and downside risks to its forecast.”On the upside, there’s the potential for acceleration of business investment and increased consumer spending. Fannie wrote that consumer spending growth “appears poised to accelerate amid continued modest wage growth and a historically strong labor market, while domestic demand should continue to receive a boost from nonresidential investment.”On the downside, there’s “a faster pace of Fed monetary tightening, intensifying trade tensions, and political uncertainty in the Euro Zone,” according to the report. Last week, the Fed raised the federal funds rate by an additional 25 basis points. At the same time, it released projected stronger growth, lower unemployment rates, and higher inflation for this year.From a trade perspective, Fannie reported, recent tariff announcements are likely to be felt disproportionately across states. North Dakota and Texas, “where exports to their international neighbors account for 8 and 5 percent of state product, respectively,” the report stated, are the most likely to feel the sting of tariff war backlash.Despite that the Fed implied four rate increases this year (modified from an earlier three), Fannie said it expects only one more hike in 2018, “but with an increasing chance that the second half of the year will register two additional hikes.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe Economy Fannie Mae GDP Home Prices HOUSING Inflation Inventory Rate Hikes Rates 2018-06-18 Radhika Ojha About Author: Scott Morganlast_img read more

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago A New Look at Mortgage Servicing Compensation A new report published by Urban Institute, Urban’s Housing and Finance Policy Center, and the Mortgage Servicing Collaborative (MSC) discusses three options for how best to approach mortgage servicing compensation structure. The report is divided into three options: retain the status quo, move to a fee-for-service model, or move to a central default utility model.According to MSC members, retaining the status quo would reduce NPL costs and improve borrower outcomes. Members in favor of retaining the status quo note that the current loss mitigation toolkit is more robust than was the case historically. Additionally, the MSC notes that nonbanks have increased their servicing market presence in recent years as banks have pulled back. The risk associated with the status quo is the lack of a formal structure to fund the high cost of servicing nonperforming loans.The next option, according to Urban, is the fee-for-service model for nonperforming loans, in which servicers would handle the servicing of performing loans as they do today, but the way they get compensated would change to ensure continued revenues, even for delinquent loans. Instead of receiving the full 25 basis point fee for performing and effectively nothing for nonperforming loans, servicers would retain less than 25 basis points while the loan is current.The last option Urban and the MSC suggest is the the creation of a central utility for default servicing, a larger change than a fee-for-servicing option. Servicers would continue to service performing loans as they do today but would outsource the loss mitigation function to a central default utility once a loan becomes 60 days delinquent.While some MSC members note that they want a change to the compensation model, some are in support of maintaining the status quo.

Some Things Are Better in Bulk

The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Tom Huddleston Previous: How Financially Literate Are Today’s Consumers? Next: Homeowners Experience Largest Property Tax Hike in Four Years Editor’s note: This article appears in the April 2021 edition of DS News, available here.  Real estate investors will often buy or sell several properties at once, and whether that transaction is numerous single-family homes or a number of hotel properties, having one company to handle the entirety of the title work can streamline the process for all involved, from real estate agents to mortgage originators. Although many in the real estate industry may think of the work of a title company as focused on a single property at a time, bulk transactions are a niche market that’s important not to overlook. When investors need to move large portfolios of property, a single point of contact and single close can ease the process, particularly if the properties span numerous states. When partnering with title companies, those working with real estate investors should seek out companies experienced with and capable of closing bulk title transactions across the country. What is a Bulk Title Transaction? Simply put, a bulk title transaction is just what it sounds like: the sale or purchase of a number of properties, grouped together into one bulk transaction that delivers title work for each property, regardless of location. These can be found in both commercial and residential properties, and can range from a handful of properties to as many as 500. Often, bulk transactions are across multiple states which, given state law differences, complicates closing, insurance coverage and pricing. The process is further complicated by differences in recording costs and taxes at the city/county level.  By doing the transactions in bulk, investors get several benefits, including having a single point of contact as well as the potential for a single closing. By using one title company, the transaction can be streamlined, saving time and money by consolidating title work by jurisdiction and using a single point of contact to keep communication flowing openly and without the confusion of involving multiple parties.  Often these transactions may involve default situations, not only making quality title research even more critical, but also involving servicers that will benefit from consolidating the transactions into a single closing. Some investors or servicers may even engage a title company to complete title research without a specific transaction in mind to gather pertinent data on a particular portfolio of properties. Partnering With the Right Title Company Choosing a title company to partner with will involve some research for anyone working in the real estate industry. There are many factors to consider to ensure the customer is getting the best fit for their needs. When working with investors who will move several properties at once, it’s important to consider a title company that can handle such transactions and the various factors that will affect the transactions, as well as one that will best ensure customer satisfaction. First, consider whether you’re working with a title agent that can choose the best products from multiple underwriters or from a direct title underwriter that offers just their company’s product. Next, how experienced is the company with bulk transactions? Do they have a dedicated group to focus on the special needs of these assets? Bulk transactions require special skills and knowledge to execute well. Also consider how large the company is: too small and they might not be able to handle the needs of a bulk transaction, but too large a company may get bogged down in bureaucratic hurdles that lengthen the process. Be sure to assess a company’s state coverage capabilities. If they only work in New England, for instance, but a client has properties across the U.S., you’ll need to look elsewhere. The next aspect to consider is a bit trickier to pinpoint, but both research and asking the right questions will help you discover if a certain title company has what you need. Technology gets a lot of attention and has become something of an industry buzzword, but it is particularly important for bulk title transactions. When handling multiple properties with lots of documentation, it’s critical that the title company has the technology in place to not only handle such large quantities of documents, but also to streamline that information into usable data and create consolidated closing statements. Technology that is capable of this kind of streamlining frequently results in lower costs to the client and requires less time to close.  Another aspect to consider in terms of technology is how that tech relates to the customer experience. Can clients access and track their transactions? Do clients receive milestone notifications? How is communication handled? Don’t forget the importance of customer service in any transaction—even large ones such as these.  Having one title company to handle multiple assets can make a significant difference for investors, particularly if the properties span numerous states. Although different jurisdictions mean different rules for each title, companies capable of handling bulk title transactions can make this a smooth process for investors with technology that consolidates closing statements and allows for monitoring of transactions’ progress. With the right title partner, investors can have bulk transactions transferred as quickly and efficiently as possible; these are exceptional transactions and it’s critical to have a partner that treats them as such. By finding the right title company to work with, those in the real estate industry can save time and ensure better communication for their clients.  Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Some Things Are Better in Bulk Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 1 day ago  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago Share Save Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 1 day agolast_img read more
