Also, FHFA’s seasonally adjusted monthly index for March was up 0.6 percent from February.Year-over-year, house prices rose in the District of Columbia and all states except two: North Dakota and Delaware, though depreciation in each was not even a full percent since last year. Prices in both states were down about 1 percent in Q1 compared to Q4, though North Dakota’s five-year appreciation finished Q1 at almost 30 percent. U.S. price appreciation over the same five-year period was almost 35 percent.Year-over-year, the District of Columbia saw the largest rise in house prices at 14 percent. Colorado, Idaho, and Washington saw increases above 10 percent, while New Hampshire saw prices rise 9.5 percent since last year.Quarter-to-quarter, D.C. again saw the biggest bump in home prices, up almost 6 percent. New Hampshire saw prices rise 4.27 percent over the quarter. Nebraska saw a nearly 3.5 percent rise; and Vermont about 3 percent.Nine states saw prices decrease over the quarter, with Hawaii seeing the largest drop, nearly 2.5 percent. Even so, of the nine census divisions, the Pacific division experienced the strongest increase in the first quarter, posting a 2 percent quarterly increase and a 7.7 percent increase since the first quarter of last year.House price appreciation was weakest in the Middle Atlantic division, where prices rose 1 percent from the last quarter, FHFA reported.Among the 100 largest metros in the U.S., price increases compared to a year ago were greatest in the Grand Rapids area, where prices increased by 13.7 percent.  Prices were weakest in San Francisco area, where they fell 2.5 percent.

Refinance transaction volume experienced an additional increase year-over-year of 2.7 percent.As for purchase transaction volume, confidence for growth over the next 12 months decreased 2.7 percent from last quarter. However, the confidence was still up year-over-year—with an increase of 7.6 percent.The report notes that prices across all property types are expected to decrease by 0.5 percentage points over the next 12 months, compared to Q3.”Optimism among title agents and real estate professionals increased this quarter, as they expressed confidence that transaction volume will grow in the coming year,” said Mark Fleming, Chief Economist at First American. “Supply-side challenges may be the reason for the decline in optimism for the residential purchase market.”Another aspect the report highlighted was the effectiveness in closing real estate transactions with fintech. According to Fleming, title agents and real estate professionals saw clear value in automated loan approval and electronic data collection technology to facilitate the digital mortgage and reduce the burden of document signing.“Interestingly, the difference in favorable responses to the two different forms of eSigning (in-person or online/remote/webcam) highlights the current debate over the role of a notary public in the closing process,” Fleming noted.In an ever-changing digital world, the successful servicers will learn to adapt to the new technologies at the forefront of the industry.

Regulation Vs. Added Costs

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Is it the CFPB or BCFP? A change in the name of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection (BCFP) was among the initial slew of changes that the agency’s Acting Director, Mick Mulvaney, recommended after taking over from Richard Cordray, who was Director of the agency under the Obama administration. Since then, the name change has caused some confusion among regulators as well as the industry that the agency regulates.Earlier this year, the agency changed its name and logo to the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. In April, speaking at an industry event, Mulvaney cited the Dodd-Frank Act which names the Bureau as the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection—saying, “The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau does not exist.”By June, the Bureau had also flipped its logo in its front lobby to reflect the new name. Yet, the name change remains a gray area for the industry the BCFP regulates.Now an article in The Hill has said that an internal BCFP analysis revealed the cost of the name change to the agency as well as the industry it regulates. According to the article, the name change could cost banks, mortgage providers, payday lenders, and credit card companies a total of approximately $300 million to update their internal databases, regulatory filings, and disclosure forms with the new name to comply with the rules.While it remains to be seen whether Kathleen Kraninger, whose nomination as BCFP’s new Director is set to face a Senate vote later this week, would follow through with the plan, the analysis said that BCFP plans to update its website to reflect the name change by March 2019. The Hill also said that it could take several months or years to implement the rebranding in federal regulations charged to it.”An agency analysis estimated that the changes necessary to comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Electronic Fund Transfer Act, and certain mortgage regulations would cost firms $100 million for each rule,” the article said. “The CFPB cited a 2010 cost-benefit analysis of agency name-changes in its internal report.”Additionally, the analysis found that the name change would cost BCFP between $9 million and $19 million in updating its internal material and website.

LendingTree examined the nation’s 50 largest cities to determine where buyers will have to take out the largest loans, and found that many are situated on or near the West Coast.Five of the top 10 cities where buyers are stretching themselves the most are in California, and Los Angeles and San Diego have remained the 2 cities where borrowers have to stretch their budgets the most.In especially overpriced areas of California, tech companies including Facebook, Google, and Microsoft are investing in affordable housing. Facebook recently announced that it will be committing $1 billion toward affordable housing in Silicon Valley. The aim is to produce up to 20,000 new housing units for workers over the next decade. Much of the new units are aimed at teachers, police, and other middle-class workers in the Menlo Park area, Wall Street Journal reports.“Though there is some speculation that the housing boom in California may be nearing its end, home prices in the state are still high,” said LendingTree Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze. “As a result, many buyers, especially those who don’t work in lucrative industries like tech, will take out large loans to cover the cost of their homes.”Outside of California, Salt Lake City is the place with the highest leverage ratio. Salt Lake City is currently undergoing a housing shortage, forcing buyers to overspend.On the other end of the scale, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Detroit are where buyers are taking the smallest loans relative to their incomes. An average leverage ratio of 2.08 could make these cities attractive to potential homebuyers.
