Institutional investor sales are down from 7.9 percent in December, and down 8.2 percent from January, 2013.The report clarifies that institutional investors are “defined as entities purchasing at least 10 properties in a calendar year.”The January share of institutional investors was the lowest monthly level since March, 2012—a 22 month low.Short-sales and foreclosure-related sales, “including both sales to third party buyers at the public foreclosure auction and sales of bank-owned properties,” combined for 17.5 percent of all U.S. residential shares in January, 2014, according to the company’s report.All-cash sales increased to 44.4 percent, the seventh month above 35 percent.”Many have anticipated that the large institutional investors backed by private equity would start winding down their purchases of homes to rent, and the January sales numbers provide early evidence this is happening,” said RealtyTrac VP, Daren Blomquist.Metro areas with big drops in institutional investor share from a year ago included Cape Coral-Fort Myers, Florida (down 70 percent); Memphis, Tennessee (down 64 percent); Tucson, Arizona (down 59 percent); Tampa, Florida (down 48 percent); and Jacksonville, Florida (down 21 percent).Counter to the national trend, 23 of the 101 metros analyzed in the report posted year-over-year gains in institutional investor share: Atlanta, Georgia (up 9 percent); Austin, Texas (up 162 percent); Denver, Colorado (up 21 percent); Cincinnati, Ohio (up 83 percent); Dallas, Texas (up 30 percent); and Raleigh, North Carolina (up 15 percent).Blomquist continued, “It’s unlikely that this pullback in purchasing is weather-related given that there were increases in the institutional investor share of purchases in colder-weather markets such as Denver and Cincinnati, even while many warmer-weather markets in Florida and Arizona saw substantial decreases in the share of institutional investors from a year ago.” Previous: Foreclosure Data Suggests ‘Continued But Slower Housing Recovery’ Next: Wells Fargo Cuts 700 Mortgage Jobs Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more

April’s sales pace is a decrease of less than 1 percent from March, but an increase of 4 percent from April 2013.”April home sales numbers are exhibiting the continued effects of low supply and still-strong demand that exist in many markets across the country,” said Daren Blomquist, VP at RealtyTrac. “Annualized sales volume nationwide decreased on a monthly basis for the sixth consecutive month and the 4 percent annual increase in April was the lowest year-over-year increase so far this year. Meanwhile median home prices nationwide increased to the highest level since December 2008.”The median sales price of both distressed and non-distressed properties was $172,000 in April, an increase of 4 percent from March and an increase of 11 percent from the previous year. April’s increase was the biggest year-over-year increase since U.S. median prices bottomed out in March 2012, according to RealtyTrac.”U.S. median home prices have now increased 21 percent since hitting bottom in March 2012, although they are still 28 percent below their pre-recession peak of $237,537 in August 2006,” Blomquist continued.April marked the 25th consecutive month where U.S. median prices increased on an annual basis, according to RealtyTrac.Short sales and foreclosures declined for the month, dropping to 15.6 percent of all sales in April, down from 16.5 percent of all sales in March. Short sales and distressed sales are down yearly from 17.2 percent from April 2013.Metro areas with the highest share of combined short sales and distressed sales were Las Vegas, Nevada (37.7 percent); Stockton, California (33.3 percent); Modesto, California (31.7 percent); Lakeland, Florida (31.4 percent); Orlando, Florida (29.3 percent); and Cleveland, Ohio (27.8 percent).REO properties accounted for 9.2 percent of nationwide sales in April, down from 9.7 percent of all sales in March and down from 10 percent of all sales in April 2013.Auction sales for the month accounted for 1.2 percent of sales, down from 1.3 percent of all sales in March, but still up from 0.8 percent of all sales in April 2013, according to the company.

CFPB Outlines Protecting Consumer-shared Data

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: CFPB. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Consumer data Richard Cordray According to a post from the CFPB’s Newsroom, new principles were outlined to help protect consumers who authorize their financial data to third party companies. These principles are intended to help “fintech” firms, banks, and other institutions develop and innovate financial products for consumers. “Today, the Bureau released its consumer protection principles for the consumer-authorized data-sharing market,” said CFPB Director Richard Cordray. “These principles express our vision for realizing an innovative market that gives consumers protection and value.” The CFPB has since reached out to large and small banks and credit unions, their trade associations, aggregators, “fintech” firms, consumer advocates, and individual consumers to better understand consumer-authorized data access can be improved.  When consumers authorize companies to collect their financial data from other organizations, they can provide a variety of products and services to them. These products include fraud screening, identity verification, personal financial management, and bill payment softwares and subscriptions. While the CFPB recognizes these products can help consumers, there are many challenges to be addressed as technology continues to develop. The protection principles cover several different areas designed to reiterate the importance of protecting consumers; this includes data access, scope, and usability, the control of the data and its informed consent, payment authorizations, security, transparency of access rights, accuracy, accountability for access and use, and disputes and resolutions for unauthorized access. The CFPB is ready to facilitate constructive efforts to take appropriate action to protect consumers, but these principles are not intended to be a statement future enforcement. They are not intended to alter or provide guidance on existing statutes or regulations currently applied in the market.

Zillow recently analyzed the features that best help move homes and land higher sale prices, discovering along the way that using the keyword “steam shower” can help boost sale price by as much as 29 percent. It’s the little things…For their 2018 Home Features That Sell analysis, Zillow examined listing descriptions for nearly four million homes nationwide that sold between January 2016 and December 2017. The goal was to discover what features—or even just descriptions of features—had the biggest impact on the final sale price of the home.Steam showers were the premium feature that earned the biggest price bump for homes during the examined period, but they certainly weren’t the only one. “Professional appliance” came in second, also earning a 29 percent average price increase. In third place, “pizza oven” resulted in a 25 percent increase. For homes priced in the top third of the market, a “sub-zero fridge” can earn a seller an extra 38 percent premium.The effect of these extra amenities also varies depending on the price range of the home being sold. A steam shower might be top-tier for pricier homes, but among homes priced in the lower third of all listings, “solar panel” was the top earner, generating a 40 percent increase over other starter homes that didn’t include them. For mid-level listings, mentioning a “shed/garage studio” can help generate a 24 percent price bump.For sellers looking to turn the house around quickly, rather than merely generating the highest sales price possible, mentioning “exposed brick” typically sold two weeks faster than those without the feature. Terms such as “open shelving,” “dual flush,” and “mid-century” also sped up the sales process for homes including those features during the examined time period.”While everyone has different style preferences, when it’s time to sell, being specific and strategic with your home’s listing description can have a big financial payoff,” says Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow’s CMO.Remodeling Magazine recently conducted a study to determine which home renovation projects retained the most value during resale. Garage doors topped that list, recouping an average 98.3 percent of cost at resale. Rounding out the top five below that were manufactured stone veneers, entry door replacements (steel), deck additions (wood), and minor kitchen remodels.As for the Zillow report, it also reveals that advertising a “pet shower” can earn sellers an extra 25 percent. Extra money and clean pets—it’s win-win. Which Features Boost Home Sale Prices?

Agents Embrace Effort to Expand Private Flood Insurance

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 1 day ago Related Articles Subscribe in Daily Dose, Featured, News The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago Sign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post A life preserver of sorts will be available to homeowners submerged in the troubling waters of flooding, according to the National Association of Realtors— that is thanks to action the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced last week, related to the extended availability of additional private flood insurance options to U.S. consumers.The FHA proposal would pave the way to the use of private insurance—as long as it meets the agency’s definition, in conjunction with recent federal laws and pro-consumer industry practices. It’s a significant shift from current FHA regulations, established in 1999. Under those circumstances, homeowners with FHA-insured mortgages could only secure insurance from the National Flood Insurance Program.”America’s 1.4 million Realtors are grateful to see the FHA take steps to make more private flood insurance options available to U.S. consumers,” said NAR President Vince Malta, broker at Malta & Co., Inc., in San Francisco. Outdated federal regulations have for too long prohibited lenders from accepting private flood insurance that is often more affordable and more comprehensive than NFIP policies. Although regulatory hurdles remain before this proposed rule is finalized, NAR looks forward to continuing our work alongside the FHA, HUD and President-elect Biden’s administration to make private flood insurance more readily available to American property owners, Malta continued.Malta sent a letter to HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Housing, Dana Wade earlier this year, reinforcing the NAR’s desire to see more private flood insurance options available in the marketplace.”NAR members can provide numerous examples where the market has offered better coverage at lower costs than the NFIP, but the 1999 rule needlessly constrained consumer choice and created inequities between FHA and more conventional loan holders,” Malta wrote. “The 21-year-old rule must be updated to reflect current market realities or the FHA risks losing market share.”Earlier this month, the FHA published a proposed rule that would allow a private flood insurance option instead of insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), when flood insurance is required by FHA.In September, the White House signed a resolution that included an extension for the NFIP until September 30, 2021.The changes, proposed Tuesday, would allow lenders to begin accepting private flood insurance policies for single-family insured loans for homes located in Federal Emergency Management Agency-designated Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), consistent with similar provisions in use by other industry participants.“Our proposal would expand the options for obtaining flood insurance, rather than continuing to lock in borrowers to one federal option without any ability to comparison shop,” said Assistant Secretary for Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner Dana Wade. “We are also proposing important safeguards that will help protect borrowers, so their homes will have flood insurance coverage at a level at or above the level available through the National Flood Insurance Program.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 1 day ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago 2020-11-16 Christina Hughes Babb November 16, 2020 1,070 Views Agents Embrace Effort to Expand Private Flood Insurance Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Agents Embrace Effort to Expand Private Flood Insurance Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 1 day ago Chuck Green has contributed to the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, Chicago Tribune and others covering various industries, including real estate, business and banking, technology, and sports.

Widespread Desire to Relocate Could be Waning

It’s possible that April’s small decline in the share of homebuyers looking to relocate to new metropolitan areas is an early indication that the trend is waning as more Americans receive COVID-19 vaccinations and return to the office.That said, experts do not have the definitive answer, but offer insights for our consideration.”The swell in relocations may be coming down from its peak, but the share of homebuyers looking to relocate to a different area is still well above pre-pandemic levels. Redfin agents in popular destinations say the surge of out-of-towners shows no signs of slowing,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather.”The small decline in April could be the start of a slowdown in the yearlong surge of people moving from one metro to another, but it could also just be a blip before things pick right back up. The dust has not settled, as there are still a lot of unknowns about what portion of workers will return to the office and how many will pick up and move because they finally have clarity from their employers about whether or how often they can work remotely. Once people know more about their future, we could see another big wave of migration …”Nationwide, 30.6% of Redfin.com users looked to move to a different metro area in April, down slightly from 31.5% in the first quarter but up from 26% at the same time last year, according to Redfin’s reporting.Back in March, Fannie Mae reported that there was widespread anecdotal evidence that the pandemic had shifted consumer demand from core city centers to lower-density markets, like the suburbs.”A look at the population of people applying for a mortgage, revealed a clear shift in behavior,” wrote Rebecca Meeker for Fannie Mae. Since then, many property data providers have confirmed mortgagees’ want to relocate.Redfin’s April data show this trend, which shows some signs of slowing, is still strong for certain regions, and that home price is an increasingly significant factor.It seems that sunny, inland metros and sections of Florida are the most desirable destinations for movers this spring.”Phoenix, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Austin, and Atlanta were the most popular destinations for Redfin.com users looking to move to a different area in April. That’s based on net inflow, which is a measure of how many more Redfin.com home searchers looked to move into a metro than leave, out of a sample of two million users,” reports team Redfin.”Relatively affordable inland metros tend to be the most popular destinations for Redfin.com users searching for homes in a different part of the country, as home searchers leave expensive coastal cities like Los Angeles and New York in favor of places with more affordable, more spacious homes.”For all 10 of the top-10 most-moved-to metros, inflow is up from last year during the same period.”I’m still seeing tons of interest from homebuyers outside the area,” said Sacramento Redfin agent Andrea White. “Some remote workers living in San Francisco or Silicon Valley are paying more than $3,000 a month to live in very small spaces. When potential buyers look at listings in Sacramento, they realize their big-city rent costs more than a mortgage here. Most of them aren’t concerned that competition is intense and home prices are going up because it’s an attractive lifestyle move. Employees who have the option to work remotely often decide it’s worth the tradeoff to move out of a big city to live in a larger home for less money.”She added that she works with house hunters looking in the Sacramento Valley because they’re planning for the future.”Some buyers from the Bay Area and Southern California are nearing retirement and want to escape the hustle and bustle of city life, and some are planning to have children in the future and they’re looking for a more spacious home to raise their family.”Here’s a list of those top-10 metros, courtesy of Redfin.

He had immediately accepted he was paid twice, and repaid half the money.Cllr Slowey said the day he submitted the claims was “very busy and full of meetings”, and he did not consciously break the rules but did so “in error”.Cllr Slowey told the commission he had suffered a loss of prestige and had paid a “huge price politically” as a result of media interest in the case. He said he had missed out on being selected to run for Fine Gael in both the recent General and Seanad elections as a result of the hearing.Commission Chairman Justice MP Smyth said the board would report its findings in three to four weeks.

Buncrana is described as moderately littered, sitting in 41st place on the league table.In the reports carried out by An Taisce, the two sites described as very poor in Letterkenny were the area around the St. Colmcille Hostel and the area around Fortwell Place. The report says the majority of the sites which had moderate levels of litter don’t need much effort to become top ranking sites.”An Taisce noted a slight improvement for Buncrana, with praise for the approach roads, the area aroundf Scoil Mhuire and the Festival Park area. However, the report says the area which really let down Buncrana’s overall performance was Seaview Car Park, which An Taisce describe as a litter blackspot.In an initial reaction to the findings, Letterkenny Tidy Towns Chairman Jim Mc Cormack says while the Foprtwell area is a problem, that is not enough to merit a seriously littered ranking.
