Today's Top Three Luxury Estates in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco 
and Seattle Listed For Sale

                                           .                          
                                      
                                   "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.  Windsor Castle located in Berkshire, England is the largest mansion in the world with around 484,000 sq.ft

Home Prices Benefit From Decline in Foreclosures -CoreLogic
CoreLogic reported on Tuesday that all major indicators of housing distress declined by double digits over the last year.  The company's August National Foreclosure Report has most of those measures back to levels of the early days of the housing crisis.

The foreclosure inventory, the number of properties in an active state of foreclosure, is now 351,000.  This is a decrease of 29.6 percent since August 2015.  The inventory represents 0.9 percent of all homes with a mortgage, the lowest rate since July 2007.  A year ago the rate was 1.3 percent.  The August inventory was down 3.2 percent compared with July.
There were 37,000 completed foreclosures nationwide in August compared to 64,000 the previous August, a -42.4 percent change.  CoreLogic said that completed foreclosures peaked at 118,211 in September 2010 so the current number represents a 69 percent drop.  Since the financial crisis first become evident in September 2008 there have been 6.4 million homes lost to foreclosure.



Completed foreclosures did tick up from July by 3,000 to 37,000, a 7.7 percent gain.  As a basis of comparison, in the six years preceding the decline in the housing market in 2007, completed foreclosures averaged 21,000 per month.

Delinquencies also have seen large declines over the last year. CoreLogic reports that the number of mortgages in serious delinquency (defined as 90 days or more past due including loans in foreclosure or REO) declined by 20.6 percent from August 2015 to August 2016, with 1.1 million mortgages, or 2.8 percent in distress, the lowest level since September 2007. The decline was geographically broad with decreases in serious delinquency in 48 states and the District of Columbia.

"Foreclosure inventory fell by 30 percent from the previous year, the largest year-over-year decline since January 2015," said Dr. Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. "The large decline in the distressed inventory has been one of the drivers of steady home price growth which helps Americans increase their home equity to support increased spending or cushion future economic risk."

"Foreclosure rates and serious delinquency continued to trend down in August as real estate markets across many parts of the U.S. exhibit strong demand growth and rising prices," said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. "With the foreclosure inventory now under 1 percent nationally, the need to boost single-family housing stocks through new construction will become more acute in the coming months and years."
Thirty-five percent of all completed foreclosures nationwide in the 12 months ended in August were performed in five states; Florida (55,000), Texas (27,000), Ohio (23,000), California (22,000) and Georgia (21,000).



Four states and the District of Columbia had the highest foreclosure inventory rate in August 2016: New Jersey (3.2 percent), New York (2.9 percent), Maine (1.8 percent), Hawaii (1.8 percent) and the District of Columbia (1.8 percent).

Mortgage Rate Trend is Not Your Friend
Oct 11 2016, 3:59PM


Mortgage Rates were higher again today, marking the 9th straight day without any improvement.  3.625% is quickly becoming the most prevalent conventional 30yr fixed quotes  on top tier scenarios, though quite a few lenders remain at 3.5%.  On an optimistic note, when losing streaks get this long in rates markets, we're increasingly likely to see at least one day of relief in the near term future.  That said, it will take more than a day or two of strength to call the current trend into question.

If it's not clear from the title, the tone, and the originator perspective below, the current trend is not your friend--at least not if you want rates to go lower in the short term.  However, the trend can still serve a purpose.  Because of its linearity and duration, it will be fairly easy to see when this trend is breaking, and that will be a better time to entertain riskier lock/float strategies.  Between now and then, it's far safer to assume the trend will continue.

Loan Originator Perspective

With a series of "higher highs" and "higher lows" in bond yields, markets are pointing to higher rates.  That trend is not your friend, but it needs to be respected.  I am looking to lock all loans within a 30 day window, with some flexibility for loans 30-45 days out, based on the concept that we MAYBE bounce back.  I think we are all optimistic this will reverse course, but optimism is not a strategy.  Defense wins championships.    -Gus Floropoulos, VP, The Federal Savings Bank

Bonds' losing streak continued today, as rates rose slightly, again.  I said last week the short term trend was not our friend, and that's still the case.  Floating now is akin to a desperate poker player drawing to an inside straight.  It might turn out well, but playing against the odds typically doesn't.  Until this pattern breaks, I'm locking early.  -Ted Rood, Senior Originator

Today's Best-Execution Rates

  • 30YR FIXED - 3.5-3.625%
  • FHA/VA - 3.25%
  • 15 YEAR FIXED - 2.75-2.875%
  • 5 YEAR ARMS -  2.75 - 3.25% depending on the lender

Ongoing Lock/Float Considerations

  • In the biggest of pictures, "global growth concerns" remain the driving force behind the long-term trend toward lower rates
  • Amid that trend, periodic corrections toward higher rates can and will happen.  These can happen for no apparent reason, or they can be brought on by changes in expectations surrounding central bank policy at home and abroad, as well as geopolitical and systemic risks
  • Time horizon and risk tolerance are 2 variables to consider when it comes to locking.  If you have plenty of time and don't mind losing some ground, set a limit as to how much higher rates could go before you'd lock to avoid further losses, and then float in the hopes of never seeing that limit.
     
  • In the shorter-term, it's always good to look for lock opportunities after rates have been moving lower or sideways repeatedly, especially if they've since begun to move back up in any sort of consistent way.
     
  • 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
