The Garden State had the third highest foreclosure rate of any state in the third quarter with one foreclosure filing for every 218 housing units, but the latest month-over-month decline pushed New Jersey down to ninth in foreclosure rate for October with one in every 878 housing units, according to RealtyTrac. In October, approximately .11 percent of residential housing units in New Jersey were in foreclosure.The other states that saw month-over-month declines in foreclosure filings in October were Colorado (37.5 percent), Rhode Island (36.12 percent), Maine (33.6 percent), Connecticut (22.1 percent), Massachusetts (12.6 percent), Iowa (5.4 percent), New York (3.2 percent), North Carolina (2.7 percent), and Florida (2.2 percent) according to RealtyTrac.The year-over-year difference in foreclosure filings was a different story, however.

The state with the largest year-over-year decline in foreclosure filings was Rhode Island with 57.2 percent, followed closely by Colorado with 56.8 percent. Rhode Island and Colorado ranked 41st and 44th among states with the highest foreclosure rate, respectively, according to RealtyTrac.In all, 26 states saw a year-over-year decline in foreclosure filings in October, according to RealtyTrac.

The Four U.S. Cities Where Paychecks are Stretching Furthest

first_img The Four U.S. Cities Where Paychecks are Stretching Furthest Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, Market Studies, News Those looking to get the biggest bang for their bucks would be most likely to find it west of the Mississippi, according to a new joint report by Trulia and Indeed. The firms looked at which American cities stretch paychecks the furthest. The report found four cities topping the list, in the South, Southwest, and West. Three are mid-sized cities and one is larger.Birmingham, Alabama, tops the list of cities where paychecks meet opportunity. The iron-and-steel town dubbed the “Pittsburgh of the South” has an average salary of about $77,000 that, adjusted for cost of living, spends like $86,000. According to Zillow data, the median home value in Birmingham is $64,600 and home values in the city have increased 6.6 percent over the past year“Birmingham’s growth doesn’t match the pace of Southern economic powerhouses like Atlanta, Raleigh, and Nashville,” the report stated, “but it is Alabama’s largest city and a bright spot in the state’s economy, accounting for about 30 percent of its domestic product.”The Irondale neighborhood is a major affordability boon to the region, Trulia reported. Median home prices in the 35210 zip code are, on average, $147,000. That’s about $50,000 below more metro-centered homes. Trulia found almost identical dollar-stretching numbers in St. Louis, Missouri, and El Paso, Texas. Both cities report a median income around $76,000 that stretches to about $84,000 when adjusted for cost of living. Dollars in St. Louis, according to Trulia, stretch further than those in Chicago and Detroit, the latter of which is considered a highly affordable metro. The city has an economy running on manufacturing, construction, leisure, and hospitality.Still, dollars stretch further in the St. Louis suburb of Bethalto, which is actually in Illinois. Bethalto is less than 35 miles from downtown St. Louis, and homes there sell for a median price of $114,000. Zillow shows a current median home value in Saint Louis proper at $128,600, up 9.1 percent year-over-year.Over in far-west Texas, El Paso might be the forgotten metro of the Lone Star State, but it’s the most affordable city in Texas, according to the report. The same salary spends about $9,000 better in El Paso than in Dallas, even though home values in the city’s most desired suburb, Upper Valley, are significant. Median homes in Upper Valley sell for about $460,000. Per Zillow, the median El Paso home value is $115,700, up 1.7 percent over the past year.The West Coast’s lone entry to value-friendly cities is Fresno, California, where an $82,000 average salary stretches to about $84,000. Fresno is part of California’s software hub, but the region is still big in farming and leisure, given its proximity to three national parks.According to Trulia, most Fresno workers prefer to live in Woodward Park, 11 miles outside of town. The median home price in Woodward Park is about $342,000, roughly $100,000 more than living in the city itself. Within the city, the gulf between average salary and median home price, though, is among the most favorable in California’s urban areas. Zillow reports the median home value in Fresno is at $228,700, with a year-over-year increase of 10.5 percent.

But in the 20 markets where homes sold fastest in Q1, they sold after an average 21 days on the market; in the top three ZIP codes, in fact, barely past three weeks.While 12 different states made up the top 20 ZIP codes in the country, California had the most, with seven areas overall. Three—San Ramon, San Diego, and San Jose—were in the top 10. Colorado, which placed the overall hottest zip code in Colorado Springs’ 80922, had two markets in the top 10. The other was Littleton.Fort Worth, Texas, tied with San Ramon for second place on the list. Homes there sold in an average 16 days during the quarter. Colorado Springs saw homes closing in an average 15 days. But those were not the fastest moving markets of the quarter. Homes in San Ramon moved in 14 days and in Littleton, just 11. These latter ZIP codes were not ranked first and second because of prices and demand. Littleton’s homes sold for a median price of $432,000 in Q1, almost $150,000 higher than those in Colorado Springs. But demand was higher, the report stated, in Colorado Springs.“Colorado ZIPs continue their hot streak highlighting the meteoric rise of Denver and its neighboring metros over the past decade,” the report stated. That reflects “a pattern that other markets hope to replicate. In fact, we speculated as to whether Salt Lake City, Utah is the ‘New Denver’ earlier this year and now we see Salt Lake City breaking into the top 20 ZIPs.”Salt Lake, in fact, finished 20th on the list. Homes there moved in an average 21 days during the quarter.The only ZIP codes outside the West and Midwest to break the top 20 were Melrose, Massachusetts; Rochester, New York; and Montclair, New Jersey.  Homes in those markets moved, on average, between 19 and 26 days on the market, according to the report.The largest surprise, the report stated, was Overland Park, a suburb of Kansas City, which finished tenth overall. Homes moved an average 25 days after being put on the market in the first quarter.  “The Kansas City metropolitan area itself has been hot this spring,” the report stated. “Overland Park is leading the pack in a new set of boiling hot neighborhoods in the Midwest.” The median price for a home in the top 20 markets was $377,000, the report stated. That’s about one-and-a-half times the national median during Q1.

On Thursday, Kraninger appeared before the Senate Banking Committee to answer some tough questions during a hearing on her nomination to lead the Bureau.She appeared before the Committee along with Kimberly A. Reed, who is nominated to lead the Export-Import Bank of the United States.Even before the hearing, Kraninger’s nomination was highly debated with some of the Senate Banking Committee members, led by Ranking Committee Member Sen. Sherrod Brown, writing to Senator Mike Crapo, Chair of the Senate Banking Committee requesting him to postpone the hearing until documents that they had asked from the Trump administration on Kraninger were provided. “A number of members of this Committee have requested relevant documents and other information from the Trump Administration in advance of Thursday’s nominations hearing,” the letter said. “To date, the Administration has not responded to these requests.  If we do not receive responsive information in time to review it before Thursday’s hearing, we will not be able to conduct the kind of oversight and questioning that allows the Senate to perform its constitutional role of providing advice and consent.”The hearing on Thursday kicked off with Crapo giving his reply to the letter. “With respect to Ms. Kraninger, some senators have requested a long list of documents, including, emails, schedules, involvement in memos, White House communications, etc., relating to Ms. Kraninger’s role at OMB with respect to the Administration’s ‘Zero Tolerance Policy’ and the Administration’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico,” Crapo said. “These requests are designed to go after certain extraneous Administration policies that the requesters do not like, and go far beyond the practice of this committee’s document production. Indeed, I would not expect this Administration or any administration to release documents related to an ongoing deliberative process.”“It is my hope that, if confirmed, Ms. Kraninger will be more accountable to senators on this Committee than Director Cordray was,” Crapo added. “I look forward to vigorous debate and vote on the nominees.”  In a Q&A that lasted longer than expected, members of the committee asked some difficult questions related to her role at the OMB as well as what one could expect from her if she was confirmed as the Director of BCFP. If confirmed as Director of the BCFP, Kraninger said that she would, “focus solely on serving the American people.”During her testimony, Kraninger hinted at pursuing a similar path as the current Acting Director Mick Mulvaney. She said that she had four initial priorities for the Bureau if confirmed as Director The first priority she said would be to make the Bureau “fair and transparent.” Secondly, Kraninger intends for BCFP to work closely with other financial regulators and the States on supervision and enforcement. Third, she said, “The Bureau must recognize its profound duty to the American people to protect sensitive information in its possession.”And lastly, she said that she would look at making the Bureau “accountable to the American people for its actions, including its expenditure of resources.”The committee is set to vote on confirming her nomination in the week of July 31.

GE’s $1.5B DOJ Subprime Settlement

first_img April 12, 2019 1,342 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: Department of Justice DOJ GE Subprime Lending  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) announced on Friday that General Electric will pay $1.5 billion to end the DOJ’s claims over subprime home loans that have been bundled into risky securities.According to the DOJ, GE misrepresented the quality of its subprime loans through its former mortgage business, WMC, and will pay its penalty under the under the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA).“The financial system counts on originators, which are in the best position to know the true condition of their mortgage loans, to make accurate and complete representations about their products. The failure to disclose material deficiencies in those loans contributed to the financial crisis,” Justice Department Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said in a statement.“As today’s resolution demonstrates, the Department of Justice will continue to employ FIRREA as a powerful tool for protecting our financial markets against fraud,” Hunt continued.“This settlement contains no admission of any allegations and concludes the FIRREA investigation of WMC,” a GE spokesperson said in a statement to CNBC. “This is another step in our ongoing efforts to de-risk GE Capital. This agreement represents a significant part of the total legacy exposure associated with WMC and we are pleased to put this matter behind us.”According to the DOJ, WMC originated more than $65 billion dollars in mortgage loans between 2005 and 2007. According to a member of GE’s Corporate Audit Staff (CAS) involved in audits of WMC observed in April 2007, WMC “jacked up volume without controls,” leading to WMC receiving more mortgage applications containing fraud or other defects than its competitors.The DOJ alleges that by late 2005 and early 2006, investment banks were kicking out more of WMC’s loans than ever, and after a review in March 2006, WMC found that 78 percent of the loan files reviewed contained at least one piece of false information.
