The sale is part of Freddie Mac’s Standard Pool Offerings (SPOs).The loans offered were delinquent by an average of three and a half years, meaning that the borrowers were likely previously evaluated for loss mitigation options or in some stage of loss mitigation or foreclosure, according to Freddie Mac. Approximately 33 percent of the aggregate pool balance consisted of loans that were modified and later became delinquent. The aggregate pool has a loan-to-value ratio of approximately 91.1 based on broker price opinion and is geographically diverse, according to Freddie Mac.The loans in this sale were offered in five different pools. The winners were as follows:Freddie Mac began marketing the transaction through its advisors on August 13 to potential bidders. As always, Freddie Mac encouraged participation from minority- and women-owned businesses (MWOBs), non-profits, neighborhood advocacy funds, and private investors in the bidding for this NPL sale. Advisors for the transaction were Credit Suisse, Wells Fargo Securities and First Financial Network, a woman-owned business.The FHFA, Freddie Mac’s conservator, requires all bidders to comply with the Agency’s enhanced requirements for NPL sales announced on March 2, which include approval by and good standing with government housing agencies (Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, Ginnie Mae, and the Federal Housing Administration); evaluating borrowers for eligibility in the government’s Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP); and applying a “waterfall” of resolution tactics before resorting to foreclosure.Freddie Mac’s last SPO sale of non-performing loans, which was completed on July 28, was comprised of 3,577 deeply delinquent loans with $591 million in UPB.

Texas Communities to Receive $1 Billion from FEMA

But in addition to rebuilding what was damaged or destroyed, the affected communities must also look to the future and prepare for future storms. FEMA is helping with that problem, to the tune of $1 billion in funds earmarked for hazard mitigation.During a press conference in Rockport, Texas, Gov. Greg Abbott announced that coastal communities affected by Hurricane Harvey could now apply for a share of half a billion dollars in FEMA funds that have been disbursed to the state. That’s half of the billion-dollar total, the rest of which is expected to be available by around the one-year anniversary of Harvey’s landfall in late August. As reported by Houston Public Media, the funds can be put toward a variety of hazard mitigation projects.“We want to rebuild in ways that reduce the risk of future damages to property and to lives,” Gov. Abbott told an assembly of reporters in Rockport. “The money is here, checks can be cut immediately as soon as you get your applications in and get them approved by [the Texas Division of Emergency Management].”The FEMA funds will cover 75 percent of costs for applicable projects, which Houston Public Media reports can include:Buyouts of flooded structures and elevating structures above floodplainsFloodwalls, seawalls, jetties, sand dune restoration and channeling waterwaysRetrofitting houses and buildings to withstand hurricane windsStorm surge protection projectsThe remaining 25 percent would typically be paid by local governments, Abbott told reporters that in this case other federal funds had been secured to cover the remainder of the cost for these Harvey-related projects.Austin-based FEMA spokesman Kurt Pickering said, “The whole idea is to make the state … more resilient next time.”Abbott clarified that these FEMA funds are in addition to the $5 billion HUD grant announced in November 2017. In accordance with HUD rules, Abbott said the Texas General Land Office must submit a state plan for those funds, which HUD must then approve. Abbott said he expected the $5 billion to be fast-tracked and available by the end of March.In the meantime, Texans still working to rebuild after Harvey can check out two upcoming free drop-in hurricane assistance centers, co-hosted by HOPE NOW Alliance and the National Mortgage Servicing Association. The drop-in center events will allow hurricane-affected residents to speak with professionals to learn how best to manage their own recovery and what resources are available to them. The first two events are scheduled for Tuesday, February 27, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Kingwood Community Center located in Kingwood, Texas, and Wednesday, February 28, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Courtyard Marriott in Katy, Texas. More such events are planned for later in the year.

Making Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Permanent

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Making Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Permanent Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 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 About Author: David Wharton United States tax policy has been in the spotlight in recent months, with President Trump signing the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law in December, and experts debating what the long-term impact of the bill will be ever since. This week representatives from the National Association of Realtors appeared before the U.S. House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Tax Policy to argue in favor of making a tax exclusion for forgiven mortgage debt permanent.The debate centers around mortgage forgiveness tax relief, a policy first implemented in 2007 and since renewed and extended several times over the years. The exclusion establishes that mortgage debt forgiven by lenders after a foreclosure, short sale, or loan modification is tax deductible. Without the exclusion, NAR explains that borrowers already working to recover from falling behind on their mortgage payments can be hit by the double-whammy of an added tax burden, even as they are trying to do the responsible thing and resolve their financial responsibilities.”The exclusion for mortgage debt cancellation delivers a huge dose of fairness. When the investment in a home goes well, and the owner sells at a gain, the tax code generously waives capital gains up to $500,000,” testified Barry Grooms, 2018 VP of Florida Realtors. “But what happens when things go sour, equity is lost, and the family is forced to sell short? Up through last year, the exclusion stepped in and relieved the often-impossible tax burden. If allowed to expire, we are left with a tax policy that rewards good fortune but piles on when the tables are turned. This is neither fair nor smart.”Grooms encouraged the subcommittee members to work toward making the forgiven mortgage debt exclusion permanent, so as to not leave borrowers in the lurch at a time when they need all the help they can get.Grooms told the subcommittee members, “Cases of negative home equity will ebb and flow as well, even with a stronger economy. This is why we need a permanent exclusion to minimize the damage to families, neighborhoods, and communities.”  Print This Post Congress Foreclosures Forgiven Mortgage Debt House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Tax Policy Loan Modifications Mortgage Debt NAR National Association of Realtors Short Sales tax policy Tax Reform 2018-03-15 David Wharton Making Mortgage Forgiveness Tax Relief Permanent Tagged with: Congress Foreclosures Forgiven Mortgage Debt House Ways and Means Subcommittee on Tax Policy Loan Modifications Mortgage Debt NAR National Association of Realtors Short Sales tax policy Tax Reform Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago March 15, 2018 4,588 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Journal, News Previous: San Diego Needs a Lot More Housing Than Planned Next: Appeals Court Clarifies Issues Regarding Robocalls and Consent The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Share Save Related Articles 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 Subscribelast_img read more

Wharton and his family currently reside in Arlington, Texas. He can be reached at [email protected] Humble Design, a Detroit-based nonprofit that provides donated home furnishings and decorating services for families and veterans emerging from homelessness, has announced its plans to expand into its fourth market, San Diego.Humble Design was founded in 2009, designed specifically to help families who were emerging from homelessness, often attempting to rebuild their lives after escaping from abusive relationships and having spent time in abuse shelters thereafter. As Humble Design’s website explains, “Many of these families are victims of abuse and have left behind all personal items upon escaping and entering an emergency shelter. Most have no beds, books, toys or furniture to call their own.”San Diego will be Humble Design’s fourth operating market, following the organization’s hometown of Detroit, Chicago, and Seattle. The group has thus far assisted 980 families since its 2009 launch, with the 1,000th slated for this August. Humble Design says that only 1 percent of the families it has helped have thereafter returned to homelessness.”The homeless situation poses a huge crisis with more than 8,500 homeless individuals in San Diego,” stated Treger Strasberg, Co-CEO and Founder of Humble Design. “The pricey housing market is a tough battle to overcome for those who wish to transition out of homeless shelters. For those who obtain housing, the next obstacle is furnishing their home. In many cases, families end up sleeping on the floor in any empty apartment. A significant portion of individuals placed in housing in San Diego return to the homeless shelter within 12 months, but we intend to help change that.””Our goal is to end the revolving door of homelessness by turning empty spaces into warm, welcoming homes through a dignified experience that leads to successful lives,” Humble Design Co-CEO Rob Strasberg said.Even setting aside the high home prices in many California markets such as San Diego, the Golden State is a powerful example of how increasing home prices are entwined with nationwide housing shortages as well. According to the California state government’s estimates, the San Diego region will need to greenlight 171,685 new home permits in order to meet state housing targets between 2021 and 2028. That works out to more than 21,000 units each year for the county, which is almost three times what has been permitted during the past seven years.According to HUD estimates released in December of last year, more than 550,000 people experience homelessness in America on any given night.

He is an exceptional business leader, having demonstrated great strategic and execution skills as the long-time head of our Multifamily business. He led the process of driving credit risk transfer and attracting private capital to finance multifamily housing while protecting the American taxpayer. More recently, he has also impressed the Board with his work as President. David is well respected within the company and the industry and is the best choice to lead Freddie Mac going forward.”Added Layton, “David is a proven business builder, having taken Freddie Mac’s Multifamily business to the preeminent position in that market. In all his work, he demonstrates a passion for the business, the mission and the people of Freddie Mac. Everything I have seen during his tenure as President has convinced me that David is the right choice to serve as the next CEO and take Freddie Mac forward.” Sign up for DS News Daily in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

Reforming Fannie and Freddie

Reuters reports that the U.S. Treasury is dealing with several other issues, putting the plan for the GSEs on hold for now. According to Federal Housing Finance Administration (FHFA) Director Mark Calabria, he hopes Fannie and Freddie will have exited, or will be ready to exit, conservatorship before his term ends in 2024. Calabria told Reuters that he is not operating toward a hard deadline.“That’s my time horizon,” he said. “I’m under no expectation to try to get all this done. … So if in four years, nine months they’re not out of conservatorship, I’m not pushing them out.”Calabria stated that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is currently “juggling a number of balls,” while Craig Phillips, Mnuchin’s adviser who had been closely involved in the reform plan, also left in June.Additionally, Calabria stated that the Treasury will back some form of government guarantee for Fannie and Freddie in the report, and notes that the government does not have forever to overhaul them and needs to progress while the housing market remains stable.“The market looks pretty strong now, so that to me is the time when we want to make real repairs,” he said.Earlier this year, the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs held a hearing on Tuesday titled “Should Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac be Designated as Systemically Important Financial Institutions?” In his opening statement, Committee Chairman Mike Crapo discussed the importance of reevaluating the GSE’s place in the mortgage market, noting FHFA Director Mark Calabria’s push to end the conservatorship of Fannie and Freddie.“In recent weeks, FHFA Director Mark Calabria has repeatedly stated, quoting President Kennedy, that ‘the time to repair the roof is not in the middle of a downpour but when the sun is shining,’” said Crapo in his opening statement. “I agree with this sentiment. We have a key opportunity right now, while the sun shines on our economy and mortgage markets are healthy, to put our housing finance system on a durable, sustainable course that can withstand any market cycle.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agocenter_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.
