Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Last week, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announced they would be contributing $186 million to the National Housing Trust Fund (NHTF) in order to provide for funding for construction of affordable rental housing for low-income families.It is the GSEs’ first contribution to the NHTF after more than a seven-year suspension. The contributions which were originally intended to start when the NHTF was created in 2008 but suspended when the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taken into conservatorship by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA). FHFA Director Mel Watt announced in December 2014 that he was lifting the temporary suspension of GSE contributions to the Housing Trust Fund.The contribution drew heavy criticism from Republican lawmakers because of perceived risk to taxpayers while the GSEs remain in conservatorship. Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said the move “sows the seeds for the next housing crisis.” Rep. Ed Royce (R-California), a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee, stated that “We must stop the egregious siphoning of money from the GSEs to this housing slush fund.” Royce introduced the Pay Back the Taxpayers Act of 2015 in January 2015, proposing that no funds from Fannie and Freddie can be used to fund the national Housing Trust Fund while the GSEs are in conservatorship or receivership.While Republican opposition to the contribution of GSE funds to the NHTF, housing advocates and civil rights groups that have been calling on FHFA and Congress to strengthen the lending market and homeownership rates, particularly among African Americans, Hispanics, and low-income communities, were equally passionate about it in the other direction, offering widespread praise for the move.“Allowing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to contribute to the National Housing Trust Fund is another significant measure taken by FHFA Director Mel Watt to shore up the commitments made to communities of color that expand affordable and sustainable housing finance,” said Wade Henderson, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. “The strengthening of this fund will help provide revenue to build, preserve, and rehabilitate housing for people with the lowest incomes. A portion of the Trust Fund may also be used for homeownership activities for people with very low incomes, beginning what we hope is another of many steps to open homeownership to millions of more Americans. We thank Director Watt for his continued leadership on this issue.”“Making a payment to the National Housing Trust Fund is a huge step to re-engage Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the low- and moderate-income housing market,” said Doug Ryan, Director, Affordable Homeownership, Corporation for Enterprise Development (CFED). “Another needed step is to build a capital buffer so the Enterprises can effectively, and for the long-term, fund homeownership for LMI communities and communities of color through Duty to Serve, Affordable Housing Goals and other programs and initiatives.”“Dithering on this issue jeopardizes the future of homeownership for millions who continue to seek economic stability, including African-American, Latino, and low-income communities.”Wade Henderson, Leadership Conference on Civil and Human RightsAccording to Brent Wilkes, National Executive Director, League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC): “Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s first payment to the National Housing Trust Fund is a long overdue step in the right direction that will help them fulfill their duties to provide services for underserved families in need of affordable housing and in pursuit of homeownership. We commend Director Watt for taking this bold step in the face of congressional inaction on housing reform. Latino families continue to fight their way back to the peak of homeownership rates prior to the housing collapse. We cannot afford to abandon those programs that will help restore the financial stability of these communities.”At the same time, however, those praising the GSEs’ contribution to the Housing Trust Fund were wary of the risk it poses to taxpayers.“However, we remain concerned about continued inaction on housing reform. Director Watt’s comments that the unending conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac poses a danger to the taxpayer—which should have served as a wake-up call for our leaders—are a positive step in encouraging a change to the status quo,” Henderson said. “The current arrangement, which will reduce Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s capital to zero at the end of 2017, will ultimately leave taxpayers on the hook for another bailout should the GSEs falter again. Building a capital buffer is the next logical step in rectifying a situation that has long been ignored, to the detriment of the American people.”Henderson continued, “Dithering on this issue jeopardizes the future of homeownership for millions who continue to seek economic stability, including African-American, Latino, and low-income communities. This is why we encourage Director Watt to operate within his authority and take action to allow for the building of a capital buffer against future losses. This would allow the GSEs to better fulfill their mandates and help more Americans achieve the pinnacle of the American Dream: homeownership.According to Wilkes, “We strongly urge Director Watt to go one step further by acting within FHFA’s purview and allow Fannie and Freddie to rebuild sufficient capital that would allow them to continue executing their commitment to underserved families, while protecting our taxpayers should the GSEs falter.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe read more

Serving the Legal Needs of a Recovering Puerto Rico

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago HMB Law Group Hurricane Maria hurricanes Natural Disasters Puerto Rico 2018-10-10 David Wharton About Author: David Wharton Share Save October 10, 2018 1,859 Views On Wednesday, attorneys Stephen M. Hladik, Miguel Maza, Rose Marie Brook, and Steven Horne announced the formation of HMB Law Group, LLC, a new law firm headquartered in the heart of San Juan’s financial district. HMB has been designed from the ground up to meet the dynamic legal challenges of both financial institutions and Puerto Rican community members as the island recovers from the devastating storms.Specializing in the needs of the real estate finance industry in Puerto Rico and beyond, HMB Law Group will offer a complete suite of legal services. The Default Servicing Department will be headed by founding members Stephen Hladik and Miguel Maza. Hladik is a former Pennsylvania Deputy Attorney General in charge of the Harrisburg office of the state’s Bureau of Consumer Protection, a recognized expert in lending law, mortgage foreclosure and tax sale law, and has represented clients from every sector of the mortgage industry. Maza has practiced in all aspects of consumer finance law for almost a quarter century, successfully representing lenders and creditors in numerous matters across the Territory and in the United States.Hurricane Maria’s impact on Puerto Rico caused $90 billion in damages to the island, and independent study from George Washington University’s Milken School of Public Health in August increased the official death toll from 62 to 2,975. In late September, HUD Secretary Ben Carson and Puerto Rico’s Governor Ricardo Rosselló announced the formal execution of a $1.5 billion grant agreement to help citizens in Puerto Rico to recover from Hurricanes Irma and Maria, $1 billion of which will be allocated to rebuilding housing.With many Puerto Rico residents having fled before and after the storm, the island’s housing and foreclosure crisis has been exacerbated by the difficulty in communicating with those borrowers—a problem that the newly formed HMB Law Group hopes to help address.“In addition to my experience as an attorney, I am very happy to apply my years of special servicing experience to work with clients to deliver an effective borrower outreach solution,” Horne said. “Many borrowers have left the island; some permanently, some planning to return. We have the ability to quickly locate them and help them to identify the best alternative for their particular situation.”“I am very pleased to be working with Steve, Rose Marie, and all of the members of the firm,” said Maza. “We have put together an all-star team that will make a very positive impact on the island.”HMB is also a flagship sponsor of PR18, an upcoming industry conference that will gather industry and government leaders in Puerto Rico to help design the next phase of the rebuilding process.

This has led to buying more affordable than renting in only 17 percent of counties across the U.S., dropping from 25 percent a year ago. The report illustrates the nationwide issue of affordability, wherein 51 of the larger U.S. counties analyzed shifting from being more affordable to buy to more affordable to rent in the last quarter of 2018. South and Midwest are the only markets where buyers still have an advantage over renting. The median monthly home payment in Q4 2018 was $1,578, an increase of 13 percent over the previous year—accounting for 31 percent of the nation’s median income. On the other hand, the median monthly rent payment increased 4 percent to $1,267 from $1,216, which accounts for 25 percent of the median income., the report found. It also indicated that the monthly mortgage payments now account for 31 percent of income. According to the report, though the ratio of mortgage payment to income has been on the rise, purchasing a home is still an affordable option in 60 percent of the 593 counties with populations more than 100,000 analyzed, down from 62 percent a year ago.“Pockets of affordability persist, but they are getting harder to find. Many parts of U.S. have seen relative home buying affordability erode as a result of rising home prices and interest rates, and slower rising rents,” said Danielle Hale, Chief Economist at Realtor.com. “Still, while the short-term math may be challenging, in the long term, rising rents tend to eventually outpace the cost of principal and interest on a fixed rate loan, which can make a home purchase the better long-term decision.”In rank order, the top 10 areas with the greatest benefit to buyers in fourth quarter of 2018 include: Clayton County, Georgia; Delaware County, Indianapolis; Baltimore City, Maryland; Richmond County, Georgia; and Madison County, Indianapolis—were among the top five counties—where buying a home is relatively affordable. The report stated the median listing prices in these counties were, on average, 60 percent lower than the national median listing price of $289,000. Median rents were 19 percent cheaper on average than the national median. Delaware County, Baltimore City, Vigo County, and Wayne County all recorded increase in listing prices outpacing the national rate of 7 percent at 11 percent, 13 percent, 28 percent and percent 26, respectively.  New York County, New York; Kings County, New York; Monterey County, California; and Santa Cruz County, California were among areas that favored renting in the fourth quarter of 2018.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Move to Single-Family Built-For-Rent The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Homeownership rates are improving, but many current apartment renters are still wishing to expand. In response, the single-family built-for-rent (SFBFR) market has expanded to meet demand.“While the current seasonally adjusted annual rate of homeownership of 64.7% is an improvement over years past, it is below the average rate of 65.6% that had prevailed since 1980,” said Robert Dietz, Ph.D., Chief Economist and SVP for Economics and Housing Policy for National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB). “Combined with ongoing challenges with saving for a down payment, there’s a growing number of households for whom apartment living does not suit their family needs but for whom homeownership remains impractical.”In a report, Dietz notes that although recent growth for this market has been somewhat subdued, with a market share of just below 5% of all single-family construction starts, the historic market share for SFBFR homes from 1992 to 2012 is 2.7%.“With such a large inflow into the rental sector, it makes sense that home builders would shift some production to this emerging market,” said Dietz.“While the current share is small, it is elevated compared with historic norms,” Dietz adds.Additionally, despite a 2% dip from the final quarter of 2017 through the third quarter of 2018, “the single-family rental market seems set for gains in the years ahead as the demand for single-family structures rises among all tenure types.”The number of single-family homes built-for-rent posted a year-over-year decline for the fourth quarter of 2019, according to the NAHB. The market has received attention as a means to add single-family inventory amid concerns over housing affordability and down payment requirements in the for-sale market. Single-family built-for-rent (SFBFR) construction does differ in structure characteristics compared other newly-built single-family homes.The built-for-rent pipeline of single-family homes is considerably smaller than the single-family home portion of the rental housing stock, which is 35% according to the 2017 American Community Survey. Approximately five million single-family homes were added to the rental stock since the Great Recession due to tenure switching. As homes age, they are more likely to be rented and the vast majority of these rental homes are owned by individual households. Thus, the primary source of single-family rental homes is not construction but the existing housing stock. In fact, from 2005 to 2015, 56% of the gains in the rental housing stock were due to increases of for-rent single-family homes.

Financial Services Committee Commemorates 10 Years of Dodd-Frank Act

In Congress, Democrats took decisive action to ensure that consumers, investors, and the economy would be better protected from a future crisis.”She added that this “landmark law” made significant reforms on a wide range of policy fronts, including creating the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) and enhancing prudential standards for the largest financial institutions to impose robust capital, liquidity, leverage, stress testing, and living will requirements.“Dodd-Frank also cracked down on risky speculative trading by establishing the Volcker Rule and created a new regulatory regime for the previously unregulated derivatives market. And importantly, we reformed the mortgage market and eliminated certain predatory products,” she said.The center of the act was the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to ensure consumers would have an independent watchdog to protect them from “abusive financial products and practices.”“Under Democratic leadership, the Consumer Bureau was wildly successful, putting millions of dollars back in the pockets of hardworking consumers who had been ripped off and stopping many abusive acts by financial institutions. But despite those successes, there are those who still want to return to the bad old days, where consumers did not have a watchdog looking out for them, and predatory lending was allowed unchecked,” she said.The CFPB, however, was recently ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court due to its single-director makeup.“The CFPB’s single-director configuration is also incompatible with the structure of the Constitution, which—with the sole exception of the Presidency—scrupulously avoids concentrating power in the hands of any single individual,” the ruling states.In response, the CFPB announced that Thomas Pahl will serve as the Deputy Director of the Bureau.Pahl served as the Policy Associate Director for Research, Markets, and Regulations since April 2018, Previously, Pahl was the Acting Director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Investors Take Note: Top Locations for Gen Z Renters

While millennials continue to make up the largest share of renters, they are entering the typical homebuying years. Gen Z makes up the second-largest share of renters but the fastest-growing segment.Rental investors might be surprised by differences in the demographics’ dwelling habits, which may seem counterintuitive when compared to one another.As RentCafe researcher and author Sanziana Bona puts it, “The downtown life in big coastal cities is so last decade.”The latest data published on the RentCafe.com blog shows small midwestern and southern towns are beginning to trend among Gen Z renters.The number of Gen Z renters jumped by 36% in 2020 compared to the prior year. The number of apartment applicants from every other generation simultaneously decreased. Thus, in order to identify what types of locations Gen Z prefers, RentCafe ranked cities by the highest share of applications for rent from this age group, as well as the highest YOY increase in Gen Z applicants.The cause for new renters’ preferences is not only that tiny towns in the heartland are more affordable, but also they offer “a vibrant local scene that feels authentic and closer to home for these young adults who are starting out in life in times of great uncertainty and change,” Bona reported. While millennials still claim the top spot for renters at 48%, quickly increasing Gen Z already owned the second spot. Some cities in 2020 experienced sharp renter increases for Gen Z, making them the trendiest cities for young renters.Topping the list is Greenville, NC.Nine of the 20 cities on this list are located in the Midwest and eight are in the South—far from the coastal cities previously favored by millennials, according to the study.They mostly are towns with fewer than 300,000 residents, a relatively low cost of living, and apartment rents less than the national average, which is around $1,400. And Gen Z is flocking to these places in large number.”In 18 of the top 20 trending locations for Gen Z renters, the share of rental applications submitted increased by at least 50% throughout the course of just one year,” the researchers report.Of course, they note, the findings must be interpreted in light of a year heavily affected by a national health crisis.”The economic and public health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic have likely influenced Gen Zer’s preferences for less populated, more affordable cities/towns in Mid-America and outside of the large southern metro areas e.g. Atlanta, D.C., Charlotte, Houston, than millennials,” according to Ronnie A. Dunn, Associate Professor of Urban Studies at Cleveland State University.University of Oregon Sociology Professor Jill Ann Harrison tells Bona that economic factors are leading people to look at smaller, more affordable markets and see their potential. Harrison concluded that one of the main benefits people get is “much more space for their money” in these small and mid-sized cities compared to what they do in big, coastal ones. “Younger people are willing to trade off living in a crowded, bustling city for having more space at home. Many of these Heartland places are also much closer to their hometowns, too, enabling a tighter intergenerational connection which is more valued among younger adults today than with Gen X.”The full study along with a complete list and graphics is available at RentCafe.com/blog.
