The survey found that 22 percent, or roughly 53 million adults, have only enough emergency savings for one month. Results from the survey also found that 48 percent of respondents said their cash reserves would last as long as three months, and 28 percent expect savings to last for a year. In total, 68 percent of consumers reported setting aside money in case of a financial emergency.Top savings goals reported by the survey include retirement and buying a home. 13 percent of survey respondents listed saving to buy a home as their top priority. A big factor in whether a person had emergency savings was race. The survey found that of the 29 percent of adults with no emergency savings, 43 percent were African-American and 39 percent were Hispanic. White respondents made up a reported 24 percent of adults with no emergency savings. Higher income earners were more apt to save, with only 11 percent of people making $100,000 or more per year with no emergency fund.In a bit of good news for homebuyers before the prime spring season, mortgage rates fell back a bit this week, according to a report from Freddie Mac. In its weekly Primary Mortgage Market Survey, Freddie Mac reported the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage averaging a rate of 4.34 percent for the week ending April 10, a decline of 0.7 from the previous week’s rate of 4.41 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year fixed was down nearly a full percentage point at 3.43 percent.

The report concluded that the underlying drivers of loss severity are the same across Agency and non-Agency loans based on the discovery that loss severities are comparable when loan attributes are controlled.Freddie Mac first added loan loss data to its single-family residential loan-level historical dataset in November 2014 in order to increase transparency to the market, anticipating an actual credit loss offering in 2015. The dataset includes loan-level loss information such as expenses and recoveries as well as credit performance data for 30-year fixed-rate single-family mortgages.”It is important for investors to have this expanded view of credit risk, especially as we continue to grow and evolve our credit risk offerings,” said Kevin Palmer, VP of single-family strategic credit costing and structuring for Freddie Mac, at the time the loan-loss data was added in November. “Having data openly available in the marketplace allows us to expand the amount of risk transferred to private investors.”Freddie Mac will be releasing historical performance data with the goal in mind of switching to an actual framework. According to Fitch, Freddie Mac’s risk sharing transactions to date have passed losses from defaulted loans onto investors using a pre-determined loan loss severity schedule.The Fitch report also found that observed agency severities generally compare with the fixed severity schedules used for 60 to 80 percent loan-to-value risk-sharing transactions – and that those observed agency severities are generally lower than the fixed levels for 81 to 95 percent loan-to-value transactions. Loss severities in an actual loss transaction may differ from aggregate historical data based on the attributes of the loans, such as the particular credit, leverage, and mortgage insurance profile of each loan pool that will drive credit enhancement requirements.A survey released earlier this week by the Collingwood Group and the Five Star Institute as part of the March 2015 Mortgage Industry Outlook Report found that 85 percent of mortgage industry professionals polled said they would like to see Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac involved in more risk-sharing transactions. Such transactions allow private market participants to invest in the credit performance of the GSEs’ book of business, thus keeping the private securitization market involved and ultimately limiting taxpayer risk while Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac remain under conservatorship of the FHFA.The Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSnews.com.

The act, including Garrett’s amendment, passed largely among party lines by a vote of 242 to 173 on Wednesday with only 12 Democrats voting in favor and only 10 Republicans voting against.The disparate impact issue has become a heated one in the last few years, particularly in housing. The rule allowing disparate impact claims, which are allegations made based on neutral practices that may have a discriminatory effect, was passed by the Obama Administration in February 2013. In early November 2014, U.S. District Judge Richard Leon struck down the disparate impact rule, saying that only claims of direct, intentional discrimination could be made under the Fair Housing Act.A case involving a disparate impact claim, Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs v. The Inclusive Communities Project, Inc., was argued in the U.S. Supreme Court on January 21, 2015. The case centers on allegations that tax credits were awarded to real estate developers who own property in low-income minority dominated neighborhoods and denied to developers who own property in predominantly white neighborhoods. The Supreme Court is expected to make a ruling in July.”While everyone agrees that discrimination has no place in the lending practices of any respectable institution, the application of disparate impact theory has had devastating impacts on law-abiding businesses who have diligently maintained fair and consistent lending standards,” Garrett said Wednesday after H.R. 2578 passed along with his amendment. “The federal government should be encouraging sound business practices, not punishing those that utilize them. I thank my colleagues for taking a stand for small businesses and reinstating equal protection under the laws as guaranteed in our Constitution by the Fourteenth Amendment.”With the Obama Administration backing the disparate impact rule, the bill is likely to meet opposition from the White House if it passes the Senate.The purpose of H.R. 2578 is to provide “FY2016 appropriations to: the Department of Commerce; the Department of Justice (DOJ); science agencies, including the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the National Science Foundation (NSF); and several related agencies.”Click here to see a video of Garrett discussing the amendment.

Additionally, the performance of the underlying loans or MBS servicer is not factored into the rating on the bonds.“Each of the GSEs, acting through GSE-approved master servicers, purchases mortgages, assembles them into pools, creates trusts from the pools of mortgages and sells undivided ownership interests in the trusts through issuances of MBS,” the company reported. “The GSEs guarantee timely payment of the interest and principal on the distribution dates for the related MBS, regardless of the performance of the underlying mortgages.”The transaction and legal analysis rating ensures that documents are reviewed for verification of correct structural features and pass through securities provide an on-time, full payment to bondholders, according to Fitch. This analysis focuses on the pledge of MBS revenues and timing provisions for payment on the underlying MBS. It also reviews the structure of governing the flow of funds, timing of payments, and reserve accounts of bondholders.“Fitch confirms in the legal documents that MBS principal repayments are passed through to pay or prepay a like amount of principal on the bonds so that, throughout the term of the bonds, the MBS principal amount equals or exceeds the outstanding bond amount,” Fitch said.In the cash flow analysis rating, Fitch mainly focused on preliminary cash flows that stem from a third party in assigning a rating to determine that the legal document provisions, including the MBS principal amounts, interest rates, timing of payments, fee structure, and sizing of reserves are accurately reflected.“The cash flows demonstrate payment of scheduled principal and interest on the bonds with no mortgage prepayments as well as with various stressed prepayment assumptions,” Fitch said. “Fitch reviews final cash flows, prepared by a third party following the pricing of the bonds, to verify that projections and assumptions contained in preliminary cash flows and on which Fitch’s rating is based, do not materially differ from the actual MBS deposited into the trust.”Click here to view the full SHFA MBS Pass-Through Bonds report.

first_img The latest Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI) is pointing toward economic growth near historical trend, or average. The index ticked up to  –0.02 in June from –0.03 in May, and one of the four broad categories of indicators that make up the index increased month over month as well. Additionally two of the four categories made negative contributions to the index in June. The index’s three-month moving average, CFNAI-MA3, ticked below trend, up to –0.26 in June from –0.27 in May. The Chicago Fed notes that employment-related factors partially drove the increase in the index. Employment-related indicators contributed +0.06 to the CFNAI in June, up from –0.08 in May. Total nonfarm payrolls rose by 224,000 in June after increasing by 72,000 in the previous month. Meanwhile, the contribution of the personal consumption and housing category to the CFNAI was unchanged at –0.05 in June. According to the Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group, economic growth is expected to slow. The 2019 and 2020 real GDP growth is predicted to slow to 2.1% and 1.6%, respectively. This prediction has been driven by an inverted yield curve, weak business investment, waning consumer and business sentiment, and ongoing trade and global growth concerns. The ESR Group also predicted that the Fed will cut interest rates by 25 basis points in July, followed by another 25 basis points in December. “As the current U.S. expansion celebrates its tenth anniversary, it does so under an economic backdrop of growing domestic and global uncertainty – and slowing growth,” said Fannie Mae SVP and Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “The heightened uncertainty, stemming in part from the seemingly intractable trade dispute between the U.S. and China, appears to have reduced business’ investment incentive, which is now poised to be a material drag on growth over the forecast period. With consumer spending the principal remaining GDP growth driver, in addition to the recent re-inversion of the yield curve suggesting that market participants expect economic activity to slow further, we believe that the Fed will take a more accommodative posture beginning with a rate cut at the July meeting of the FOMC.” About Author: Seth Welborn Economic Growth Nears Historical Average Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Economy Federal Reserve 2019-07-22 Seth Welborn Previous: Vacancy Rates: The Next Housing Crisis?

first_img  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Though the majority of Americans believe they will be impacted by natural disasters, recent data found that there are still more actions that can be taken in the short term to help protect their finances and their families should disaster strike, according to an American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) survey of 2,050 U.S. adults conducted by The Harris Poll in the fall of 2019.Six in ten Americans (61%) believe they are likely to be personally impacted by a natural disaster in the next three to five years, including one in five (19%) saying they are very likely to be personally impacted.“In the face of a natural disaster, protecting your family from harm should be your primary concern,” said Gregory J. Anton, CPA, CGMA, chair of the AICPA’s National CPA Financial Literacy Commission. “During the recovery process, access to financial resources and personal information is critically important. Taking action to put together a plan today will help protect your family and your finances should you ever find yourself impacted by a natural disaster.”Nearly three-quarters of Americans (73%) have taken at least one step to prepare for a natural disaster, most commonly assembling a disaster supplies kit (34%), creating an evacuation plan (32%), or backing up and storing personal medical and financial records in a safe place (31%). The bad news is only 15% have created a disaster plan to protect their finances. Another 27% have not taken any steps at all to prepare for a natural disaster. Additionally, just 27% of Americans have valuated insurance needs to assure adequate coverage.Natural disasters impact investors, service providers, mortgage servicers, government agencies, legal professionals, lenders, property preservation companies, and—most importantly—homeowners. The COVID-19 crisis is a present example of how our industry and daily operations suffer in the face of unforeseen incidents.The Disaster Preparedness Virtual Symposium: IMPACT 20/20 will include critical conversations on response, reaction, and assistance to ensure the industry is ready to lend the proper support the next time a natural disaster strikes.Be prepared.
