                                   "A mansion is a large and stately dwelling"
The word mansion derives through Old French from the Latin word mansio "dwelling", an abstract noun derived from the verb manere "to dwell". The English word "manse" originally defined a property large enough for the parish priest to maintain himself, but a mansion is no longer self-sustaining in this way.  'Manor' comes from the same root—territorial holdings granted to a lord who would remain there—hence it is easy to see how the word 'Mansion' came to have its meaning.

Today's Real Estate News

Starter Home Drought Leaves First Time Buyers Thirsty
By Jann Swanson
Mortgage News Daily

Housing industry players have decried the absence of first-time homebuyers and the negative impact they have had on the housing recovery.  Fannie Mae's Economic and Strategic Research team, in the most recent edition of Housing Insights, says that this absence, which has long been a result of lack of demand due to financial constraints, is now shifting to a supply issue. 

As the labor market has improved and wages to recover and even though tight credit may still be an obstacle recent attention has shifted to the lack of available starter homes as an impediment to first-time buyer participation.  Fannie Mae's analysts see several issues involved in this shortage.

The first frequently cited issue is the "subdued construction of modestly priced houses. Another factor, perhaps not as frequently noted, is the conversion of owner occupied single-family homes to rental properties during the housing bust and recovery. To explore the shift toward renting, Fannie Mae's analysts look at net changes in the number of starter homes since the start of the housing downturn.  They define these homes as single- family detached units with less than 2,000 square feet (sf) of floor area and either owner- or renter-occupied. They chose this measure as the Census Bureau's American Housing Survey (AHS) does not provide information on prices.

Housing Insights looks at the square footage distribution of single-family detached homes inhabited by first-time homeowners under the age of 35.  Prior to the housing bubble of 2004-2006 71 percent of homes occupied by these buyers contained less than 2,000 sf. while 55 percent of other homeowners occupied homes of this size according to AHS.  The National Association of Realtors reports that 59 percent of primary residences purchased by first time buyers between July 2014 and July 2015 were under 2,000 sf compared to 32 percent purchased by repeat buyers.



The growth of single family rentals is one of the defining characteristics of the housing bust and recovery with the number of such units increasing by approximately 3 million units, one half of the total growth of rental stock.  Much of this growth came from the starter home market. The number of renter-occupied starter homes expanded by nearly 2 million between 2005 and 2013, accounting for two-thirds of the growth in all single-family detached rentals. During the same period, the number of owner-occupied starter homes fell by more than 1 million and the number of owner-occupied homes of more than 2,000 sf grew by more than 1 million units, half of which were larger than 3,000 sf.



Home builders are not stepping up to fill the gap, instead building increasingly larger homes.  The share of new single-family homes, attached and detached, smaller than 2,000 sf has dropped from 40 percent in 2005 to 32 percent in 2015. In 2005, home builders completed about 650,000 single-family detached and attached homes of less than 2,000 square feet (see Exhibit 3). By 2011, starter-home completions had plummeted to less than 200,000 units per year, and have since shown little sign of rebounding.



Fannie Mae concludes there was an upside to the conversion of single-family homes to rentals at the height of the housing crisis.  Investors helped stabilize home prices, removed excess vacancies from the market and absorbed some of the millions of foreclosed homes. However, "While this adjustment played an important role in the housing recovery, it might also have contributed to the set of challenges facing potential first-time homebuyers by reducing the supply of starter homes available for owner- occupancy. In turn, the tight starter home supply and associated rapid price gains in the lower tiers of the home sales market are reducing first-time home buyer affordability.

Mortgage Rates Unchanged at 2-Week Lows
Oct 21 2016, 3:23PM

Mortgage Rates held steady today, continuing a much-needed break from the move higher that dominated the first 2 weeks of October.  While we've only seen modest improvements (or in today's case, a mere absence of deterioration), it's been enough to get the average lender back below last week's best levels.  3.625% remains the most prevalently-quoted convention 30yr fixed rate on top tier scenarios, though there are a few lenders at 3.5%.
In terms of underlying market movement, the past 2 days have been much calmer than they might have been.  Expectations for volatility centered on the European Central Bank (ECB), and the risk that it would say something about reducing its bond buying program at yesterday's press conference.  A reduction in the program would imply higher rates around the world, and indeed, the associated fears are part of the reason rates have been rising in general.  But the ECB abstained from official comment and anecdotally has promised to let us know in early December.

That means interest rates of all shapes and sizes are at a bit of a loss when it comes to inspiration--a fact that's evident in today's uninspired bond market trading.  Risk and reward thus decreased when it comes to lock vs. float decisions.  

Originator Perspective


Pretty boring few days in the bond markets.   The benchmark 10 year note has made several attempts to break through resistance at 1.73 but so far it has held.  With yields not moving lower, there isn’t much benefit in floating.  If you are happy with the current terms and are within 15 days, I would advise that you consider locking.  -Victor Burek, Churchill Mortgage

Bond prices held virtually unchanged, and my pricing mirrored yesterday's.  I still don't see any looming impetus for a meaningful bond rally, and believe we just bought more time at current levels.  Floating MIGHT yield some marginal improvements, the question is whether you want to accept the equal risk of losses.  It's a tossup in my eyes, and in this circumstance I say tie goes to locking. -Ted Rood, Senior Originator

Today's Best-Execution Rates

  • 30YR FIXED - 3.625%
  • FHA/VA - 3.25-3.5%
  • 15 YEAR FIXED - 2.875%
  • 5 YEAR ARMS -  2.75 - 3.25% depending on the lender
Ongoing Lock/Float Considerations
  • Rates have generally been trending higher since hitting all-time lows in early July
  • Clearly-defined uptrends provide higher-than-average motivation to lock
  • Risk-takers can try to time the dips in rates that may occur during that broader uptrend, but the reward for good timing generally isn't worth the risk in these situations.
     
  • We'd need to see a sustained push back toward lower rates (something that lasts more than 1-3 days) before anything less than a cautious, lock-biased approach makes sense for all but the most risk-tolerant borrowers.
     
  • As always, please keep in mind that the rates discussed generally refer to what we've termed 'best-execution(that is, the most frequently quoted, conforming, conventional 30yr fixed rate for top tier borrowers, based not only on the outright price, but also 'bang-for-the-buck.'  Generally speaking, our best-execution rate tends to connote no origination or discount points--though this can vary--and tends to predict Freddie Mac's weekly survey with high accuracy.  It's safe to assume that our best-ex rate is the more timely and accurate of the two due to Freddie's once-a-week polling method)
