This comes after a mid-November grant of more than $5 billion to help Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey. Both grants are pulled from a larger $7.4 billion block that is being divided between Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and California (following that state’s widespread wildfires). But how exactly will the money be distributed and used on the ground in Florida and Texas?In the case of Florida, the nearly $616 million will be distributed through Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The grant is earmarked for housing, business losses, and damaged infrastructure, but it almost certainly won’t be enough to cover every need. Of Florida’s 67 counties, FEMA designated 48 of them for individual assistance. According to the Orlando Sentinel, “in Orange, Seminole, Orange and Osceola counties, more than 37,660 Irma-related insurance claims had been closed without payment—making them part of the 250,000 unpaid and closed claims statewide.”According to a HUD analysis, thousands of middle- and lower-income Florida homeowners and renters “experienced serious damage to their residences and were not adequately insured for flood damage.” The state is coordinating with various government officials to figure out exactly how that grant money will be disbursed. Tiffany Vause, director of communications for the state Department of Economic Opportunity, also said that they will likely seek additional federal funds beyond the $615 million.In Texas, it’s been three months since Hurricane Harvey hit the gulf coast. According to the Texas Tribune, Texas leaders are estimating they may need as much as $121 billion in federal money to tackle damages just to public buildings and infrastructure—a figure that makes that $7.4 billion grant look like a drop in the bucket. There’s no official estimate for what the damage tally is for private homes, but according to the Tribune, “more than 18,000 families were still living in FEMA-paid hotel rooms as of Nov. 13 and federal inspectors have visited more than 570,000 homes damaged by Harvey.”While that HUD grant is undoubtedly much needed, the Tribune reveals that none of that money has been handed over to the State of Texas yet. Given that it’s only been two weeks since the initial HUD announcement, that’s not too surprising, but HUD will reportedly be announcing spending parameters for the Texas grant sometime in December.Texas has received more immediate federal relief from FEMA, which has so far spent around $1.4 billion to assist Harvey victims with short-term needs, including $186 million toward hotel rooms for displaced residents. FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program has paid out even more, paying more than $5.7 billion in claims for Texan homeowners who were underinsured or not covered by private insurance.Even once those HUD millions are disbursed, it will be a long road to recovery for Florida and Texas homeowners trying to pick up the pieces after hurricane season.

More Million-Dollar Cities on the Horizon

first_img 2018-08-10 Kristina Brewer Home / Daily Dose / More Million-Dollar Cities on the Horizon Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Headlines, Journal, Market Studies, News Previous: Cloudvirga Partners with Radian Guaranty for Streamlined Processes Next: RMPS Selected as Bay Point Advisors as Subservicer Real estate website Zillow is predicting that within a year it will add 23 new metros, mostly in California, to its “$1 Million City List.” That means two dozen cities with a median home value of $1 million or more will be added to the 197 that already exist.Zillow reported that U.S. home values are expected to rise 6.6 percent over the next year, leading to home-value appreciation in the double digits in some areas, like California. The San Francisco metro alone could gain seven $1 million cities by next June. The metro already has 46 $1 million cities, which is more than any other metro area in the country. The Los Angeles metro is expected to gain five new $1 million cities in the next year, while Seattle and San Jose will each add two, Zillow reported. Across the country, the New York metro is expected to gain three new million-dollar cities, while Boston should join the list.”The number of million-dollar cities has doubled over the past five years. These markets tend to be affluent and exclusive suburbs with very strict building restrictions in communities adjacent to finance and tech hubs,” said Aaron Terrazas, Zillow senior economist. “Although home value growth is expected to slow over the next year, particularly at the high end of the housing market, the number of cities where more than half of homes are valued in the seven digits is expected to jump to a new all-time high over the next 12 months.”But, according to Zillow, pricey cities aren’t the only places experiencing rapid home-value growth.“Over the past year,” the report stated, “U.S. home values rose over 8 percent, to $217,300.” That escalation is so much so fast that the 66 percent of renters who say they often think about owning a home also cite saving for a down payment as one of the key impediments holding them back.Still, the march towards million-dollar metros continues. Biltmore Forest, N.C., in the Asheville metro, is forecast to be the first $1 million city in North Carolina. Likewise, Anna Maria, Fla., in the Sarasota metro, is expected to become the first $1 million city there. Properties in both cities are just shy of $1 million, median, as of August. Zillow expects these markets to grow steadily through next year to the $1 million mark.

FHFA Director Mark Calabria Talks Increased GSE Capital Retention

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post Previous: What Wells Fargo’s New CEO Means for the Industry Next: NFIP Extended Through November Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / FHFA Director Mark Calabria Talks Increased GSE Capital Retention Subscribe The U.S. Department of the Treasury (Treasury) and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently announced that they had agreed to modifications to the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements (PSPAs) that will permit Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to retain additional earnings in excess of the $3 billion capital reserves currently permitted by their PSPAs.These modifications are an important step toward implementing Treasury’s recommended reforms that will define a limited role for the Federal Government in the housing finance system and protect taxpayers against future bailouts,” said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.FHFA Director Mark Calabria released a statement recently regarding the letter agreement with the Treasury to increase Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac capital retention.“The Enterprises are leveraged nearly 1,000-to-one, ensuring they would fail during an economic downturn – exposing taxpayers once again. This letter agreement between Treasury and FHFA, which allows the Enterprises to retain capital of up to $45 billion combined, is an important milestone on the path to reform,” said FHFA Director Calabria. “FHFA commits to working with Treasury in the coming months to amend the share agreements and further advance broader housing finance reform. These reform goals include limiting the government’s role in housing finance, increasing marketplace competition, focusing on affordable housing, and sustainable homeownership. The status quo is not an option. Now is the time to act.”To compensate Treasury for the dividends that it would have received absent these modifications, Treasury’s liquidation preferences for its Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac preferred stock will gradually increase by the amount of the additional capital reserves until the liquidation preferences increase by $22 billion for Fannie Mae and $17 billion for Freddie Mac.Treasury and each of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac also agreed to negotiate an additional amendment to the PSPAs that would further enhance taxpayer protections by adopting covenants that are broadly consistent with the recommendations for administrative reforms contained in the Plan.

It marked the start of the conservatorships. Meantime, permanent loan modifications have accounted for about 44% of these actions. In November, there were 2,624 permanent loan modification since the conservatorships began in September 2008, that brought the total to 2,437,133.  The same month, 14% of modifications were those with principal forbearance, whose modifications with extend-term only accounted for just 68% of all loan modifications. There was a bounce from 83,404 in October to 57,133 in November in the number of borrowers on the receiving end of payment deferrals after wrapping up a COVID-19 related forbearance plan. There was only a modest uptick on initiated forbearance plans in November, from 58,516 in October to 59,203. Conversely, the total number of loans dipped from 922,589 at the end of October to 841,977 at the end of November. That was around 2.90% of the total loans serviced, and 69% of the total delinquent loans. As mortgage rates continued to fall through October, last November, total refinance volume parachuted, sustaining a record-breaking pace.  There was a modest jump, to 1.02%, in the 30-59 days delinquency rate. Meanwhile, the serious delinquency rate spiraled from 2.99% at the end of October to 2.88% as November wound down.  Following a similar course, there was a trail off of 19% to 602 in third-party foreclosure sales. In November, foreclosure starts descended 38% to 1,540 in November. The million-dollar questions that everyone in the industry is asking right now are: “What are foreclosures going to look like once the foreclosure moratoria and forbearance programs come to end?  And will we see all those borrowers in forbearance end up in default?” The short answer is “there probably won’t be a foreclosure tsunami.” But mortgage servicers and other default servicing professionals should prepare themselves nonetheless. Some industry analysts have predicted a huge wave of foreclosures once the forbearance program comes to an end. Popular opinion at the start of the pandemic was if there were 4 million people in forbearance, we’d ultimately have 4 million people in foreclosure. But the way the program has worked so far suggests that’s simply not the case. The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis estimated that 500,000 borrowers avoided foreclosure during the fourth quarter of 2020 due to coordinated relief efforts, which makes the CARES Act forbearance program is one of the best examples we’ve ever seen of the government and the industry working hand-in-hand to accomplish such a positive outcome. The program has done exactly what it was supposed to do: allowed millions of people to get through the pandemic and recession without losing their homes while giving them time to get back on their feet financially once COVID-19 is under control. But there are still millions of borrowers in the forbearance program. What will happen to them as they exit, and how will the industry handle the high volume of borrower requests for repayment plans?  Related Articles  Print This Post Subscribelast_img read more

MCS provides property inspections, property preservation, REO property maintenance, REO rehab and repair, property registrations, HOA and utility services, and other property-related services in all 50 states in the U.S. and its’ surrounding territories.The Human ElementMCS credits its success on several factors, including its commitment to building a strong, experienced team. As such, MCS boasts a management team “with more than 750 years combined experience in the financial services industry.” That focus is backed by MCS’ trend of hiring/promoting from within the existing team.“We continue to believe that the best people, processes, and technology will enable us to maintain a leadership role in this industry,” said Caroline Reaves, CEO. She added that “almost 100%” of the company’s team leads, supervisors, and managers were promoted from within MCS.That focus on the “people” factor has been challenged over the past year, as MCS, along with the rest of the industry, has adapted to what has become, at least for now, the “new normal.” With more than 95% of MCS’ team working from home offices, all involved have had to reexamine best practices for management, recruitment, and other considerations.Reaves explained, “Connecting with new employees outside of the typical office environment requires intentional leadership at all levels.” She noted that MCS managers connect with their teams via regular daily phone calls and other means of communication. “Our managers know that having a personal relationship with each employee is critical to ensure that new talent, as well as existing employees, feel valued and respected. … We strive to ensure that all of our employees know just how important they are.”Of course, recruitment from outside the company—or even the industry—has its place as well.“We continue to grow our strong, diverse workforce by bringing in talent from outside of the industry and providing them with training and development opportunities to grow their careers,” Reaves said.Challenges Faced, Potential AheadAs the industry has continued dealing with the impact of the ongoing foreclosure moratoriums, Reaves says MCS has “strategically dedicated resources to improving our processes, ensuring that we will be ready when those moratoriums lift.”MCS has also maintained a strong focus on technology, working to marry new areas of innovation into the most impactful areas of its business. Reaves explained that “MCS relies on a number of ‘technology usage themes’ that help guide the application of technology in field services.”Recent examples of this focus include:Leveraging MCS’ mobile application to create the capability for homeowners to perform self-serve loss draft inspectionsEmbedding business policy/rules, government regulations, and customer needs into systems logicDeploying “bots” that run throughout the day to help with repetitive tasksUse of machine learning to assist with review of imagesAs we navigate the early months of 2021, MCS is focused on preparing for a significant increase in workload once moratoriums eventually lift.
