All major regions experienced sales increases in May, led by the Northeast.According to NAR, total existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, and co-ops, increased by 5.1 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.35 million in May from an upwardly revised 5.09 million in April. Sales have now seen increased year-over-year for eight consecutive months and are 9.2 percent (4.90 million) above a year ago.”Solid sales gains were seen throughout the country in May as more homeowners listed their home for sale and therefore provided greater choices for buyers,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “However, overall supply still remains tight, homes are selling fast and price growth in many markets continues to teeter at or near double-digit appreciation. Without solid gains in new home construction, prices will likely stay elevated—even with higher mortgage rates above 4 percent.”Total housing inventory increased by 3.2 percent to 2.29 million existing homes available for sale at the end of May, and is 1.8 percent higher than the 2.25 million homes for sale a year ago, the report says. Meanwhile, unsold inventory dropped down to a 5.1-month supply at the current sales pace for May, down from 5.2 months in April.Single-family home sales increased by 5.6 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.73 million in May from 4.48 million in April, and are and now 9.7 percent above the 4.31 million pace a year ago, the report says. The median existing single-family home price was $230,300 in May, up 8.6 percent from May 2014.”The return of first-time buyers in May is an encouraging sign and is the result of multiple factors, including strong job gains among young adults, less expensive mortgage insurance and lenders offering low downpayment programs,” said Yun. “More first-time buyers are expected to enter the market in coming months, but the overall share climbing higher will depend on how fast rates and prices rise.”Chris Polychron, NAR president and executive broker with 1st Choice Realty in Hot Springs noted that Realtors overwhelmingly support the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s proposal of a two-month delay for the implementation of the new TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure, or TRID, regulation.”NAR has long advocated the need to avoid implementing the new regulation during the peak buying season,” Polychron said. “With interest rates on the rise, many families wanting to buy are looking to lock-in at current rates and move into their new home before the school year starts. Holding off on TRID implementation through the summer helps these buyers avoid any disruption or delays in closings that could develop once the regulation goes into effect.”Click here to view the National Association of Realtors’ Existing-Home Sales Report.

Disaster Response—Lessons Learned and Preparations Planned

The Washington Post reports that Jeremy Kirkland, Counsel to the HUD Inspector General’s Office, told a subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee that the Inspector General is meeting congressional lawmakers’ request to investigate whether the Trump administration has slowed the flow of aid to the island.“We are in the process of looking into whether there has been any interference and do plan to report back to Congress on what we find‚” Kirkland said in response to questions from Rep. Maxine Waters (D-California), the committee’s chairwoman, later adding that a team of agents and lawyers is looking into the matter. “I know our folks are out there right now doing that.”Here are some other disaster-related stories that have been breaking this week.Building Better Disaster Relief in Puerto RicoOn Tuesday, the Committee on Financial Services held a hearing entitled “The Administration of Disaster Recovery Funds in the Wake of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria” in order to discuss the impact of the HUD Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and the allocation of funds following recent hurricanes to hit the East Coast, Gulf Coast, and Puerto Rico.In his statement, Secretary Gil Enseñat noted how Puerto Rico has utilized the CDBG funds, discussing the new Homebuyer Assistance Program in Puerto Rico.“We’re creating a Homebuyer Assistance Program by investing $350,000,000 to help citizens purchase homes through a variety of support mechanisms, thereby increasing the level of homeownership in impacted communities and contributing to long-term sustainability and viability of communities across the island,” Enseñat stated.Reevaluating the NFIPLower-income homeowners are especially impacted by flood damage after a major storm. In a hearing entitled “Preparing for the Storm: Reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program,” Mabél Guzmán, speaking on behalf of the National Association of Realtors, noted that many homeowners are underinsured, and coastal areas are not the only areas at risk of flooding.“By every measure, floods are getting worse,” Guzmán said in her statement. She stated that many homeowners are unaware of the risk, and a restructuring of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) may be necessary. Collin O’Mara confirmed Guzmán’s statements, noting that the increasing number of natural disasters requires a different approach.The ongoing flooding happening across the midwest, for example, caused by a deadly combination of heavy rains and large accumulations of snowmelt overwhelming rivers, is likely to continue into May, Realtor.com reports. Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts told reporters on Monday the flooding was “clearly the most widespread disaster we have had in our state’s history.”Realtor.com notes that repair costs associated with flood damage can top $100,000, and the value of homes in flooded areas drops even after the repairs are done.What Can Be Done?The mortgage industry needs to be more proactive in its approach in dealing with the new reality of natural disasters. In an interview with CNBC, Five Star Global President & CEO Ed Delgado said that he did not believe that mortgage market was prepared for the risk of increasingly severe weather.“It could come close to exposing lenders to uncontrollable risk,” Delgado warned.He added: “When you have more than a trillion dollars worth of real estate at risk in coastal markets, it’s about time you start paying attention to that.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Savecenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago March 27, 2019 2,472 Views Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Industry Reacts to Fed’s Coronavirus Response

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / Industry Reacts to Fed’s Coronavirus Response Industry Reacts to Fed’s Coronavirus Response in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News March 3, 2020 1,699 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Coronavirus Fed Interest rates 2020-03-03 Mike Albanese About Author: Mike Albanese Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago #Fed’s emergency #coronavirus rate cut in perspective… pic.twitter.com/QyvKk6bHfx— Gregory Daco (@GregDaco) March 3, 2020Powell said the Fed is in contact with central banks around the world on ways to alleviate financial concerns. The Dow Jones, which was positive 150 points prior to his press conference, fell by more than 300 points by the conclusion of his speech. The Dow Jones ended the day 785 points down. Mark Hamrick, Bankrate.com’s Senior Economic Analyst said the Fed delivered “monetary policy medicine” that investors were looking following the economic impacts of the virus. Hamrick said the full “emergency” 50-basis point reductions—the first since the Great Recession—shows how serious the Fed believes the possible risks the virus poses to the economy. “At issue is how much this inoculation can protect the economy and support the financial markets from a public health crisis and supply constraints radiating out from China,” he said. “While the statement from the FOMC says the fundamentals of the economy remain strong, central bankers are obviously concerned about developments yet to possibly unfold.”Hamrick cautioned that with target rates now at 1% to 1.25%, the Fed is running out of ammunition to fight economic downturns. Another challenge is how the Fed may take back rate cuts once coronavirus and economic damage have subsided. “Lower interest rates do little to make consumers and businesses feel substantially more confident about the future when a health crisis is spreading around the world,” he said. “It also cannot address the hobbled supply chains, including manufacturing capability in China and South Korea. Still, the Fed is doing what it can to try to keep the economy out of recession.”WalletHub CEO Odysseas Papadimitriou agrees that lower interest was the right call in response to the virus because of the risk of it turning into a pandemic before treatment becomes available is “very real.”“That is not to be alarmist, but being proactive is the best strategy in insulating the economy,” Papadimitriou said. “Consumer spending will go down if people stay home because of the coronavirus.”He added “a rate cut is better than nothing,” but the federal government should be prepared to step in to support distressed industries if things get worse. “That obviously should take a backseat to immediate investments in healthcare capabilities. But if the coronavirus spreads throughout the economy and the fear we’re seeing in markets really manifests itself in hard economic data, that would only compound our problems,” he said. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist at the National Association of Realtors, said the coronavirus has “quickly upended globe economic expansion” and introduced the uncertainty of a possible recession.“Today’s interest rate cut is, therefore, an appropriate response to changing events. The real estate sector will hold up very well because of the rate cut. Hesitant home buyers will be enticed to take advantage of low-interest rates. Commercial property prices will rise due to higher returns that can be had from the bond market after adjusting for risks,” Yun said.85 Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Federal Reserve announced Tuesday that it has cut interest rates by half a percentage point in an effort to boost the U.S. economy due to the continuing spread of the coronavirus. “The fundamentals of the U.S. economy remain strong,” the Fed said in a statement on Tuesday. “However, the coronavirus poses evolving risks to economic activity.”The main borrowing rate set by the fed now sits between 1% and 1.25%, which is nearing historic lows. President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets Tuesday morning, saying the Australian Central Bank cut interest rates and stated it will most likely further ease in order to make up for the slowdown caused by the coronavirus. “Other countries are doing the same thing, if not more so,” Trump said on Twitter. “Our Federal Reserve has us paying higher rates than many others when we should be paying less. Tough on our exporters and puts the USA at a competitive disadvantage. Must be the other way around. Should ease and cut-rate big. Jerome Powell of the Federal Reserve has called it wrong from day one.” A report by Politico noted that Powell, Chairman of the Fed, addressed Congress in February and said he did not see a need to adjust interest rates. He told lawmakers, “the current stance of monetary policy will likely remain appropriate.”Powell also said that the virus could “lead to disruptions in China that spill over the rest of the global economy” and there will “very likely” be some effect on the U.S.In a press conference following the announcement, Powell stood by the Fed’s decision to cut interest rates and noted he is confident in the strength of the U.S. economy and that it’s “going to get to the other side of this.”   Print This Post Share Save Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus Fed Interest rates Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Small Town Mortgage Delinquencies are Growing Next: Michigan Governor Signs Legislation to Mitigate Foreclosure Issues The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

The Week Ahead: Examining the Climate’s Impact on Housing Infrastructure

As a result, many homes in disaster-stricken areas are lost due to a lack of resilient design and poor structural siting.Among the witnesses scheduled to speak are Rodney Ellis, Commissioner of Harris County, Texas; Ariadna M. Godreau-Aubert, Executive Director of Ayuda Legal Puerto Rico; Andrew N. Mais, Commissioner of the Connecticut Department of Insurance; and Shelley Poticha, Chief Climate Strategist for the National Resources Defense Council.The panel will chat about measures being taken to address areas vulnerable to climate change and the status of three key housing and climate related pieces of legislation, including:The “Reforming Disaster Recovery Act” involving the permanent authorization and reformation of the CDBG-Disaster Recovery Program.The “National Flood Program Reauthorization Act of 2021” to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) for five years, enacting a number of reforms to place the NFIP on sound financial footing and make the program more resilient, institute a cap on premium increases of 9% per year, and forgive more than $20 billion in NFIP debt.The “Green Neighborhoods Act,” legislation to encourage energy-efficiency, conservation, and the development of renewable energy sources for housing, and to create sustainable communities.On Friday, May 7 at noon EDT, the Task Force on Artificial Intelligence will host a virtual meeting, “Equitable Algorithms: How Human-Centered AI Can Address Systemic Racism and Racial Justice in Housing and Financial Services.” Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have impacted all aspects of our daily lives. Will AI be able to close the racial divide in housing and finance industry? A panel of witnesses to be named will take a closer look at this issue and suggest remedies to the dilemma.Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:MBA Forbearance and Call Volume Survey (Monday)CoreLogic HPI Report (Tuesday)MBA Weekly Applications Survey (Wednesday)Realtor.com Weekly Housing Market Recap (Wednesday)Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Market Survey (Thursday)U.S. Department of Labor’s Unemployment Insurance Weekly Claims Report (Thursday)Black Knight weekly forbearance data (Friday) Share Save  Print This Post About Author: Eric C.

Dispelling Mentorship Myths

first_imgSubscribe  Print This Post Related Articles Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Dispelling Mentorship Myths mentors ServiceLink Yvette Gilmore 2021-05-11 Eric C. Peck 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, Journal As the American workplace evolves over time—from the modernization of office technology to open floorplans to, now, the rise in telework—one construct has stood the test of time. Professionals across varying industries have long celebrated the impact of mentorship on both personal and professional growth.Mentorship, especially for women and other members of an underrepresented group, can help open doors for professionals just entering the workforce while also providing a fresh perspective for those who are further along in their careers (among many other benefits). So, why does the tried-and-true mentor/mentee relationship seem a bit antiquated to some? There are, unfortunately, many mentorship myths that still persist today and may hold people back from embarking in a new mentor/mentee relationship.I recently spoke to several fellow women leaders in the industry who have been just as impacted by mentorship as I have in my own career. We put together a list of the top six mentorship myths in the hopes we can dispel them and encourage seasoned professionals to answer the call to mentorship, while also encouraging the next generation of industry leaders to consider the role that mentorship can play in their own careers.Myth #1: Mentorship Is Time-ConsumingFact: Mentorship Can Easily be Worked Into a Busy ScheduleFor senior leaders with overflowing email inboxes and back-to-back meetings on their calendar, carving out the time to meet regularly with a mentee can seem daunting; which is why some avoid it altogether. However, in mine and my colleague’s experience, mentorship—particularly in the digital age—does not take up a great deal of time. The best part about mentorship is that mentors and mentees control the cadence and the frequency of meetings to best fit their needs and schedules.In this digital age we’re living in, there are more ways than ever to stay connected and keep up with mentorship; which is particularly important today, as the pandemic has shrunk most of our social circles and interactions with those outside of our immediate households have dwindled. Unfortunately, feelings of isolation have crept in for many, particularly for working women who often shoulder the brunt of the “second shift” of unpaid labor in the home. That’s why mentorship, in today’s challenging landscape, is as critical to individual growth as it is to a business’ bottom line.Myth #2: Mentors Should Always Choose Their MenteesFact: Mentees Can—and Should—Seek Out Mentors They Wish to Learn FromMentorships can form in myriad ways, including pairings built organically over time or through formal, company-sponsored programs.Individuals, regardless of age or tenure, should feel empowered to seek out their mentors on their own as they know, better than anyone, what they want to learn and who they want to learn it from (i.e., those who have the qualities they are looking to build themselves). By actively seeking mentors, individuals can also make themselves more visible as an “up and comer” in a company. While asking someone to be a mentor can be a bit intimidating, luckily, there are plenty of articles online that can be helpful to those who are considering mentorship for the first time.Myth #3: Mentors Are Always Older Than Their MenteesFact: Mentors Should Be Selected Based on Their Expertise—Not Their AgeAlthough the more traditional definition of mentorship involves a more senior individual who uses his or her influence and experience to help with the advancement of a mentee, that is not the only form of mentorship that exists. In fact, mentorship can often take place without one even realizing it! Whether bouncing an idea off a colleague (peer-to-peer); asking a younger, more tech-savvy colleague for help with a new software program (reverse); or even soliciting advice from several individuals at once (group), there are many ways to benefit from mentorship that have nothing to do with age. A great mentor should aim to always provide constructive feedback, have a personal interest in a mentee’s career and serve as a strong role model—without having a “what’s in it for me” mentality. Trust me when I say that you’ll benefit just as much as your mentees do (see myth No. 6).Myth #4: Mentor Relationships Must be Structured and Have Clearly Defined Goals and Objectives in Order to be SuccessfulFact: Mentorship Does Not Have to be Rigid or Formal in Order to be SuccessfulQuick check-ins via text or email to let a mentor or mentee know you’re thinking of them can sometimes be just as impactful as an hourlong mentoring session with a formal agenda in place. As a new relationship builds over time, some formalities may naturally ease up as the mentor/mentee become more comfortable with one another. While it is typically suggested that a mentee at least come prepared with a quick list of topics or questions to be discussed—to ensure the time is productive—the mentor should not feel obligated to “know it all,” and the mentee should also bring their own views and experiences to the table as well. As long as both parties feel they are benefiting from the relationship, it is up to them how they wish to define “success” on an ongoing basis.In the words of my colleague, Amy Daniel, “mentorship is not a forced process.” If it feels forced, the mentorship might not be the right fit.Myth # 5: Mentors and Mentees Should Always be of the Same Gender and in the Same Line of WorkFact: Diverse Mentorship Can Help Drive Innovation and Inclusive Workplace CulturesWhile more and more women find themselves in leadership positions today, there is still much work to be done. And now with the COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacting women—with one in four contemplating leaving the workforce altogether—mentorship and sponsorship from members of a dominant group to a historically underrepresented group has gained newfound importance. In addition, mentorship doesn’t always have to come from someone who is on a similar career journey. As I firmly believe, a good idea can come from anywhere, diverse mentor/mentee pairings can help open doors to new ways of thinking (and more often than not, truly innovative thinking doesn’t typically derive from brainstorming sessions of like-minded individuals only). It’s important that we retool how we think about mentorship and what a “typical” mentor/mentee pairing should look like.Myth # 6: Mentees Are the Only Ones Who Benefit From MentorshipFact: Both Mentor and Mentee Should Benefit and Gain a Fresh PerspectiveIt should go without saying, but no matter how far we progress in our careers, we don’t know it all. For mentors, letting your guard down with mentees and sharing your successes and failures can help you find common ground with younger mentees. In addition, mentees can help provide a fresh perspective to mentors that they can apply to their leadership and coaching styles. Remember: we all have something to teach, and we all have something to learn.
