In March, the group reported roughly 45,000 total completed modifications, increasing slightly from February’s total of 42,000.The total number of loan modifications completed are the highest they have been in five months.For the first quarter of 2014, foreclosure starts totaled roughly 218,000. Foreclosure starts in March stayed relatively flat at 70,280, dropping from February’s total of 70,317.

First Quarter Sees Solid Year-Over-Year Revenue Increases for Wells Fargo, Chase

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Both JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo reported solid revenues for the first quarter of 2015 compared to the same period last year, according to statements released from the banks on Tuesday.New York-based Chase reported a net revenue of $24.8 billion for the first quarter, an increase of $967 million from Q1 2014, driven by strong performance in the corporate and investment bank, both in markets and investment banking. Also, lower gains in private equity partially offset the increase in fee revenue in asset management and mortgage banking Chase received in Q1. Chase’s net interest income for Q1 was $11 billion, which was relatively unchanged from Q1 2014.Net income was up 12 percent year-over-year for Chase in Q1, driven predominantly by higher revenue, according to the bank. Net income increased by $645 million up to $5.9 billion. Chase’s earnings per share rate was $1.45 for the first quarter.“JPMorgan Chase continues to support consumers, businesses and communities and make a significant positive impact,” Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said. “We have an outstanding franchise which is getting safer and stronger, and is gaining market share over time. We continue to build the company for the long-term, we are investing in controls, infrastructure, systems, technology, new products and bankers. We will continue to navigate challenges and deliver for our clients, shareholders and communities.”San Francisco-based Wells Fargo saw revenues jump by 3 percent in Q1 up to $21.3 billion, while net income declined slightly year-over-year – from $5.9 billion down to $5.8 billion. According to the bank, higher noninterest income was more than offset by the decline in net interest income, which was primarily a result of two fewer days in the quarter.Wells Fargo’s noninterest income for Q1, $10.3 billion, was an increase of $29 million from the previous quarter. The bank received higher income from trading activities, debt security gains, mortgage origination gains, and insurance, which were offset by lower other income, such as from mortgage servicing (which was $108 million for Q1, compared to $235 million for the previous quarter). The mortgage banking noninterest income for Wells Fargo was $1.5 billion in Q1, which was an increase of $32 million from Q4; residential mortgage originations were $49 billion in Q1, an increase of $5 billion from Q4. The diluted earnings per share rate for Wells in Q1 was $1.04.”Our solid first quarter results again reflected the benefit of our diversified business model and the continued focus of our 266,000 team members on serving the needs of consumer and business customers,” Wells Fargo Chairman and CEO John Stumpf said. “We continued to strengthen our customer relationships in the quarter, as reflected in strong growth in deposits and primary checking customers. In addition, our mortgage business was able to serve more customers by refinancing their mortgage loans with lower rates.” About Author: Brian Honea Banks Earnings Statements JPMorgan Chase Wells Fargo 2015-04-14 Brian Honea First Quarter Sees Solid Year-Over-Year Revenue Increases for Wells Fargo, Chase Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

Native to America

Though homelessness has decreased by 100,000 in the last 10 years and the unemployment rate is at its lowest point in a decade, Carson explained they have a special responsibility to those peoples who were here before all others.During the conference, Carson shared recent HUD data that found that 68,000 new affordable housing units are needed to replace their older and less safe predecessors in order to serve the American Indian and Alaska Native communities. Carson said they have a moral obligation to make sure this happens.In order to follow through, HUD will have to work across all federal agencies, state and local authorities, tribal leaders, and public and private partnerships to make sure jobs are available to those that need them and are able to work.“It means eliminating burdensome regulations and unreasonable limits on land use that keep tribes from prosperity and self-sufficiency, preventing them from developing their own property as they like,” Carson said. “And it means ensuring that every community has access to good health care and choice in education. For we cannot simply put a roof over someone’s head, while ignoring the needs of their body and mind.”One of the ways HUD and ONAP is working to address Native American lending is through its new computer system that expedites the processing of mortgage loans for Indian Housing. The ONAP Loan Origination System or ONAP-LOS will allow lenders to automate case registration, reservation of funds, and the issuance of loan guarantee certificates. Eligible lenders are able to train on the system electronically.For more information on ONAP-LOS, click here.

Why Debt Reduction is a Top Priority for Americans

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Why Debt Reduction is a Top Priority for Americans Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago August 15, 2018 1,812 Views Independent of mortgages, American debt is on the rise, according to a new report by Northwestern Mutual.The report found that a little more than half of Americans cited debt reduction as their top 2018 financial priority. That might have to do with the fact that, according to Northwestern Mutual, average personal debt (exclusive of home mortgages and among those with some debt) is $38,000 this year; and that compares to compared to just over $37,000 in 2017. The push to reduce debt might also have to do with some other statistics found in Northwestern Mutual’s study. For example, twice as many Americans (33 percent) are in debt between $5,000 and $25,000 than having anything similar in personal savings (17 percent). Add to that, fewer people this year say they don’t have any debt—23 percent now, compared to 27 percent a year ago—and 20 percent of people say they allot half of all their income to paying off debts. A further 10 percent said they believe they’ll stay in debt for their entire lives.Knowing these numbers, however, doesn’t seem to be dissuading personal spending, said  Emily Holbrook, director of planning, Northwestern Mutual.”Despite recognizing that debt means dangerous waters, Americans are jumping in with both feet and struggling to stay afloat,” she said. So what’s causing all this debt? This year, according to the report, it’s credit cards, which tied mortgages as the leading source of debt. Credit card debt leaped from 19 to 25 percent of a person’s debt since last year.Student loans are another huge piece of the debt picture, and that’s truer the younger you go. Overall, debt from educational loans hit 6 percent this year, but that number is 28 percent for those between 18 and 24 years old.“The cycle of  ‘buy and borrow’ continued this year,” the report stated. “After covering off on basic necessities, Americans allocated nearly equal amounts of their monthly income to debt repayment and discretionary expenses.”Those averages ran 36 and 37 percent, respectively.

Peck Share Save March 23, 2021 1,704 Views American Rescue Plan Fannie Mae Forbearance Freddie Mac Mike Fratantoni Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) 2021-03-23 Eric C. Peck One year into the pandemic, forbearance requests have dipped to their lowest levels since last March, as the Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) latest Forbearance and Call Volume Survey finds an estimated 2.5 million homeowners now in forbearance plans, with the total number of loans now in forbearance decreasing by nine basis points from 5.14% of servicers’ portfolio volume in the prior week, to 5.05% as of March 14, 2021.Of that 2.5 million, the share of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loans in forbearance decreased to 2.83%, a five-basis-point improvement. Ginnie Mae loans in forbearance decreased 13 basis points to 7.03%, while the forbearance share for portfolio loans and private-label securities (PLS) decreased by 14 basis points to 8.91%. The percentage of loans in forbearance for independent mortgage bank (IMB) servicers decreased eight basis points to 5.37%, and the percentage of loans in forbearance for depository servicers slid four basis points to 5.15%.”New forbearance requests decreased to their lowest level since last March. Combined with a steady pace of exits, this drop in new requests resulted in a larger decline in the share of loans in forbearance across all investor categories,” said Mike Fratantoni, MBA’s Senior Vice President and Chief Economist. “More than 11% of borrowers in forbearance have now exceeded the 12-month mark. We anticipate that servicers will be busy over the next month, with many homeowners opting for the extension for up to 18 months recently made available for federally-backed loans.”By stage, 13.9% of total loans in forbearance are in the initial forbearance plan stage, while 83.5% are in a forbearance extension. The remaining 2.6% are forbearance re-entries.According to the MBA, of the cumulative forbearance exits for the period from June 1, 2020-March 14, 2021:27.1% represented borrowers who continued to make their monthly payments during their forbearance period.26.2% resulted in a loan deferral/partial claim.14.9% resulted in reinstatements, in which past-due amounts are paid back when exiting forbearance.14.2% represented borrowers who did not make all of their monthly payments and exited forbearance without a loss mitigation plan in place yet.8.2% resulted in a loan modification or trial loan modification.7.6% resulted in loans paid off through either a refinance or by selling the home.The remaining 1.8% resulted in repayment plans, short sales, deed-in-lieus or other reasons.With the Fed opting to keep rates in the 0% range, unemployment claims dropping by 42,000 last week, and portions of the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan economic stimulus package in play, signs point toward an uptick in economic health.”The pace of economic activity is picking up, as the vaccine rollout continues,” said Fratantoni. “We expect that a stronger job market will help many successfully exit forbearance in the months ahead.”center_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Forbearance Requests Slide to New Lows Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Ali Haralson Promoted to President of Auction.com Next: A Closer Look at a Record-Breaking Year Related Articles  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Derry PSNI issue bogus callers warning

first_img Dail hears questions over design, funding and operation of Mica redress scheme Police in Derry are urging householders not to admit strangers to their home following reports of a number of bogus callers in the Foyle area.In a statement, police say bogus callers depend on the good nature and good will of others, and tend to target the more vulnerable members of our society and in particular, older members of the community.Police in Derry are advising people to ensure back doors are locked before answering front doors, to ask tradespeople for ID, and not to let anyone into their home until they are absolutely sure of the caller’s credentials.People who are vulnerable should ask the caller to come back later and arrange for a friend, relative or neighbour to be present on their return.Police say genuine tradespeople should carry a photographic identification card, and this can be verified through QuickCheck on 0800 013 22 90.The statement concludes that neighbours can also play a part in helping protect the more vulnerable in the community. Residents should try to look out for one another and report ALL suspicious activity to the Police immediately.
