At that pace, the number of new homes permitted will not reach 1.1 million until 2023, which is consistent with historical averages.While the survey found there are many reasons why the recovery is not stronger, local government was the primary reason that volume recovery was stronger in some areas than in others. The survey found that government attitudes toward housing tend to be either friendly and affordable or unfriendly and unaffordable.Areas where builders can quickly build to meet demand like Texas and Georgia, which are well-known for business-friendly environments, fit into the friendly and affordable category; particularly Texas, which has opened up huge amounts of land for development in the last decade due to massive investments in freeway infrastructure. Texas also features new homes near employment centers that tend to be cheaper than in most areas even when home price appreciation is considered.Meanwhile, states like Virginia, Illinois, New Jersey, California, and Washington (excepting downtown Seattle) are well known for being difficult for builders, regulation-wise, according to JBREC. These places feature areas that are highly desirable to live, but they have become very expensive, and on top of that, demand is outpacing new construction, JBREC reported.“The bottom line is that there is a huge correlation between government attitudes and new home construction and prices,” Burns said. “We strongly believe that the large, affordable markets will grow faster than the other markets.”Click here to view the full survey.

The result is a simpler, faster policy selection process that can save borrowers money and reduce loan delays. “Simplifying homeowner’s insurance and bringing policy selection into the home-buying process is a no-brainer — in fact, people often ask us why it’s never been done before,” said Matic Co-founder and CEO Aaron Schiff. “Matic brings to the table an outstanding technical team, a deep understanding of the mortgage business and unprecedented partnerships with insurancecarriers, mortgage lenders and mortgage servicers, some of whom are also our financial supporters. This new funding will support us as we double our team and scale the business to serve our customers in all verticals.”Mr. Cooper’s integration with Matic will make it easier and faster for borrowers to secure a homeowner’s insurance policy when purchasing a home through Mr. Cooper. It will also allow Mr. Cooper to help its mortgage servicing customers lower their monthly payments with a more affordable homeowner’s insurance policy.  The company’s decision to invest in Matic and integrate Matic’s services is part of its new strategy and consumer-centric approach, unveiled in August with the launch of the Mr. Cooper brand name.“Mr. Cooper is pleased to be working with Matic to give our customers access to its innovative digital home insurance platform,” said Tony Ebers, EVP of Originations for Mr. Cooper. “Our investment in Matic will help us provide our customers a modern, easy-to-use shopping experience that could save them money on homeowner’s insurance and make their homeownership journey more rewarding.”center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago HOUSING Matic Insurance Services mortgage Mr. Cooper 2017-11-13 Nicole Casperson Subscribelast_img read more

Securing Foreclosure Protections for Veterans

first_img This past week the United States Senate passed legislation designed to help protect military servicemembers, veterans, and their families from foreclosure. Sponsored by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island), the legislation was included as part of the larger banking regulation bill passed by the Senate and makes permanent a one-year foreclosure grace period for service members leaving active duty.“Those who serve our country ought to be given a fair chance to get their financial affairs in order when they return home,” Whitehouse said. “That’s why I’ve fought for years to extend and make permanent important foreclosure protection for servicemembers and veterans. I’m proud my bill to help recognize the noble work of our men and women in uniform is one step closer to the finish line.”Following a report by the Commission on the National Guard and Reserves, Congress first extended the period of foreclosure protection from 90 days to nine months in 2008, working under the auspices of the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act. According to that report, “the threat of foreclosure is a stressor that need not be placed on members of the armed forces during the first months of their return to civilian life.”The foreclosure grace period for servicemembers was extended to one year beginning in 2012, but it was initially instituted as a temporary measure. The grace period was set to expire in 2019, but Sen. Whitehouse had been working to pass legislation that would upgrade it to permanent status for several years.Erik Wallin, Executive Director of Operation Stand Down Rhode Island, said, “Senator Whitehouse’s bill is particularly important in Rhode Island because we have one of the most deployed National Guard forces in the country. This bill provides servicemen and women with the relief they need as they transition from periods of active duty back into civilian life.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Securing Foreclosure Protections for Veterans Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Foreclosure Foreclosure Protection Military Servicemembers Veterans Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Fannie Mae Announces Winner of Non-performing Loan Sale Next: Collaborating for a Sustainable Housing Industry Foreclosure Foreclosure Protection Military Servicemembers Veterans 2018-03-17 David Wharton Securing Foreclosure Protections for Veterans March 17, 2018 4,794 Views Related Articles About Author: David Wharton The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share 1Save in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Journal, Newslast_img read more

On Wednesday, The Subcommittee on Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit held a hearing entitled “Improving Transparency and Accountability at the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection” that discussed Mulvaney’s recommendations and other reforms that would help promote greater transparency and accountability at the Bureau.In his remarks at the hearing, Subcommittee Chairman Blaine Luetkemeyer said that Mulvaney was striving to foster an environment that promoted transparency, legitimacy, and greater consumer choice. However, recognizing that not all reforms could be done administratively, Luetkemeyer said, “The American people deserve a Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection that enforces the law rather than creates it, and that gives power and choice back to the consumers.”During their testimonies at this hearing, Steven Day, President American Land Title Association; Richard Hunt, President and CEO, Consumer Bankers Association; Kate (Larson) Prochaska, Director Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness, U.S. Chamber of Commerce; Hillary O. Shelton, Director, Washington Bureau and SVP, Advocacy and Policy, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP); and Elmer Whitaker, CEO, Whitaker Bank Corporation of Kentucky gave the panel a number of recommendations. They included:Instituting Congressional control over CFPB’s budget and subjecting CFPB to the Congressional appropriations processCoordinating regulatory activities with other agencies to avoid duplication and burdenReforming the consumer complaint databaseProviding clear rules and avoid rulemaking by enforcementReviewing the amount of information and number of mortgage lenders required to make public their loans under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA)Reasserting the enforcement powers of the Office of Fair LendingEstablishing a bipartisan commission at the CFPB to lead the BureauReviewing Rules for small-dollar bank lending and small business lendingEstablishing debt collection regulations for third-party debt collectors for the right balance between consumer protection and consumer engagementCreating a CFPB Advisory Opinion ProcessReviewing Section 1071 of the Dodd-Frank Act that requires the Bureau to prescribe rules for collecting and reporting data on lending to minority-owned and women-owned small businessesApart from these recommendations the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) also sent a letter to the subcommittee urging the CFPB to streamline regulatory burdens for credit unions and work more closely with the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) on compliance.“Consumers lose when one-size-fits-all rules force credit unions to pull back safe and affordable options from the market, pushing consumers into the arms of the providers engaged in the very activity that the rules were designed to curtail,” the letter said.

White Paper: Self-Governance Critical for PLS Industry

He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. A new White Paper by the Milken Institute reports that the private-label residential mortgage-backed security (PLS) industry must find a way to “self-govern” by collaborating on a set of uniform guidelines. “Accomplishing this will evidence PLS’s responsible evolution since the Great Recession,” the paper states. “Failure could lead to confusion, disagreements, errors, and litigation that arise from differing contractual interpretations and competing priorities. Failure could also harm consumers and further erode PLS’s standing as a viable component of home financing.” The paper—authored by Eric Kaplan, Michael Stegman, and Theodore Tozer—points out that the recent CARES Act provides mortgage forbearance relief for federally-backed mortgages only. “While various states, including New York, have enacted new measures that extend mandatory forbearance to non-agency loans, they all require shorter periods of forbearance than the CARES Act prescribes,” the analysis said. While the CARES Act does not address non-agency loans, many within the PLS industry have acknowledged the importance of providing forbearance relief to borrowers impacted by COVID-19. “At the same time, these parties expressed concern as to whether tax laws fundamental to PLS allow forbearance relief similar to the type the CARES Act requires,” the paper states.On April 3, 2020, the Structured Finance Association (SFA), requested guidance from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the U.S. Department of the Treasury on the tax treatment of COVID-19-related mortgage loan payment forbearance under PLS trust structures. Several days later on April 13, the IRS issued Revenue Procedure 2020-26, which confirmed that such measures generally would not violate special tax rules applicable to PLS, “effectively clearing the way for servicers to offer forbearance relief options to borrowers affected by COVID-19 whose loans are pooled in PLS transactions.” “Following the resolution of this gating legal question, the first task for PLS parties to consider before providing forbearance relief is to evaluate the governing PLS transaction documents—particularly, the pooling and servicing agreement or equivalent contract—to determine whether the documents allow or condition the contemplated forbearance,” Milken states. Milken’s White Paper says PLS may face scrutiny if the governing deal document or loss mitigation panels do not provide COVID-19-related relief similar to that of the CARES Act. “For deals that allow forbearance, there are critical structural issues that industry stakeholders must resolve to ensure fair, consistent treatment of forbearance relief within PLS trust structures. Failure to achieve consistency could open the PLS deals—and various PLS trust participants—to a wave of litigation that would likely have an outsized adverse reputational impact relative to PLS’s small market share in the post-financial crisis capital markets,” the paper states. Kaplan, Director, Housing Finance Program, Milken Institute, told MReport that while the forbearance periods may end soon, not all borrowers are going to go back to employment or achieve the same income levels prior to the pandemic. He said there could be a large portion of borrowers who will come out of forbearance and into default or even bankruptcy. Kaplan added that any repayment methods need to be sustainable for the borrower. Kaplan said while many government agencies—the Federal Housing Administration, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Veteran Affairs, and the GSEs—have loss mitigation policies, he questions whether they will be flexible enough for borrowers who may need a year, or even two, to repay forbearance amounts. He added communication, options, and clarity on those options will be a large focus moving forward. Earlier confusion caused many borrowers to think a lump-sum payment would be needed coming out of forbearance, but the Federal Housing Finance Agency said borrowers in forbearance with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac-backed mortgages are not required to repay missed payments in one lump sum. While there is more concrete language on the agency side, Kaplan said it is “murky” on the non-agency side and “starting to come under focus.” “Seems odd to me that homeowners in forbearance would be subject to foreclosure. It doesn’t make sense to me,” he said.  Home / Commentary / White Paper: Self-Governance Critical for PLS Industrycenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus default Forbearance The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Previous: House Committee Proposes Debt Collection Prevention Next: Preparing for Another Economic Downturn White Paper: Self-Governance Critical for PLS Industry Subscribelast_img read more
