With Apartment Living on the Rise, Where Does That leave the Single Family Market?

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / With Apartment Living on the Rise, Where Does That leave the Single Family Market?  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save About Author: Staff Writer Q4 of 2016 saw a rise in completion of multifamily homes, including apartments and condominiums, according to the most recent Survey of Market Absoption (SOMA), which is produced by the U.S. Census Bureau in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Apartment completions—classified as buildings with 5 or more units—rose to 73,300 in the final quarter of 2016, a 9 percent increase year-over-year from 67,300. Similarly, condominiums and co-op completions were up to 6,500 from 3,200 a year prior. In the last two years, there have been over 250,000 new apartments entering the market, and the number of completed condominiums has more than double from 2014 to 2016—increasing from 8,000 units to 19,000 units. Absorption, however, has been down for both apartments and condominiums. The number of apartments rented within 3 months of their completion was at a near-decade low—48 percent—compared to 55 percent a year prior. Absorption numbers haven’t been below 50 percent since Q4 of 2009. Condominium absorption numbers are also faltering at a much higher rate than apartments. Only 47 percent of condos completed were absorbed in Q4 2016, compared to 81 percent in Q4 2015. The last time condominium absorption rates saw numbers that low was in Q4 2011. The report notes that, because completions of new multifamily housing has been on the rise for the last couple of years, it is not out of the ordinary that absorption would slow in the face of a larger inventory. The slowdown, although steep compared to Q3, does not entirely point to an emerging trend, the report also notes. Apartment absorption has been on the rise since Q3 of 2015, and condominium absorption has stayed above the latest dip in Q2 of 2015 for six straight quarters.

Buffett: Economy Will Hurt if Uninsured Harvey Losses Top $150 Billion

That’s going to be a big determinate I would think. And the sad reality is that in real estate as long as there’s real estate to buy, one person’s misfortune is another persons opportunity.”There are those in the industry that are venturing guesses. Moody’s Analytics projects loss in southeast Texas to be between $51 billion and $75 billion, with home and vehicle damage estimated at $30 billion to $40 billion. However, total losses could continue to rise as the storm moves into Louisiana. According to Buffett, if those uninsured losses top $150 billion, there will be noticeable effects on the economy.”I don’t think it would be a full percentage point for a year or anything like that. But it has a real effect. It destroys wealth. If there’s $150 billion, or something, of uninsured losses that’s real wealth,” Buffett said on CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street.”The main point of concern is lack of flood insurance take-up by homeowners, which will delay reconstruction efforts, according to Moody’s Analytics. Moody’s expects a majority of Harvey’s impact to fall on the residential housing market. Even though Warren said Harvey’s arrival offered a fair amount of warning, if the storm continues its damage in Louisiana, losses as a share of GDP could overtake Hurricane Andrew and the Northridge Earthquake of 1994.”It’s how you perform at a time like this that really defines whether your insurance company is doing the right job,” Buffett said.

FCC, clarifying several issues with regard to consumer and industry rights pertaining to robocalls and texts sent to consumers.ACA International challenges the FCC’s interpretations of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), as laid out in a July 2015 Omnibus Declaratory Ruling and Order. At issue were four particular questions pertaining to the interpretation of TCPA rules. As laid out on ACA International’s website, ACA focused their arguments on three areas: “the definition of an ‘automatic telephone dialing system,’ the identity of the ‘called party’ in the reassigned number context, and the means by which consent can be revoked.”During the 2017 ACA Convention and Expo in Seattle, ACA’s Corporate Counsel Karen Scheibe Eliason told attendees, “ACA sought judicial determination of whether the FCC ignored the controlling statute in order to expand the scope and reach of the TCPA in a way that Congress never intended, leaving a law in place that hurts legitimate, law-abiding businesses.”The Court of Appeals sided with the FCC when it came to issues of consent revocation. The Appeals Court’s cites and supports the FCC’s argument that “‘a called party may revoke consent at any time and through any reasonable means’—whether orally or in writing—‘that clearly expresses a desire not to receive further messages.”On the topic of what constitutes a robocaller or “‘automatic telephone dialing system,” the Court sided with ACA, pointing out that the FCC’s previous interpretation could lead to unintended consequences such as ordinary people suddenly finding themselves in violation of the law simply by making use of their smartphone. The opinion reads:“Imagine, for instance, that a person wishes to send an invitation for a social gathering to a person she recently met for the first time. If she lacks prior express consent to send the invitation, and if she obtains the acquaintance’s cell phone number from a mutual friend, she ostensibly commits a violation of federal law by calling or sending a text message from her smartphone to extend the invitation.”Finally, the Appeals Court sided with ACA with regard to instances where a robocaller calls an existing number that has been reassigned, thus inadvertently making an unsolicited call to a person with whom the organization does not have a prior business relationship or express consent to receive calls. Previous FCC interpretations had allowed for one mistaken call to a given number under these circumstances, but ACA argued that that number was arbitrary.Although the court sided with ACA against the FCC on two of the three issues, current FCC Chairman Ajit Pai released a statement that actually supported the ruling. Pai, who dissented against the 2015 FCC clarification, said, “Today’s unanimous D.C. Circuit decision addresses yet another example of the prior FCC’s disregard for the law and regulatory overreach. As the court explains, the agency’s 2015 ruling placed every American consumer with a smartphone at substantial risk of violating federal law. That’s why I dissented from the FCC’s misguided decision and am pleased that the D.C. Circuit too has rejected it.”FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly also voiced his support of the Appeals Court’s interpretation, releasing a statement that read, “I am heartened by the court’s unanimous decision, which seems to reaffirm the wording of the statute and rule of law. This will not lead to more illegal robocalls but instead remove unnecessary and inappropriate liability concerns for legitimate companies trying to reach their customers who want to be called.”Sen. Ed Markey (D-Massachusetts) was less enthused by the ruling. “The D.C. Circuit Court invalidated core protections that help give consumers reasonable control over their mobile devices,” Markey said. “It is now the FCC’s obligation to use its existing authority to reestablish robust, enforceable protections to enhance the precious zone of privacy created by the law.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Journal, News, Technology ACA International v.

Foreclosure Assistance for Homeowners Struggling with Property Taxes

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Following up on legislation passed in the fall of last year, the city of Philadelphia this week announced changes to the city’s foreclosure prevention program designed to help struggling homeowners who are facing foreclosure after falling behind on their property taxes.During an announcement at the Philadelphia City Hall on Monday, government representatives and anti-poverty advocates united to announce a new $400,000 Award from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Authority’s Fair Grant Program. State Sen. Vincent Hughes said that the award was designed “to deal specifically with all the issues around foreclosure and preventing folks from going down that path.”The initiative is the latest program designed to combat Philadelphia foreclosures related to property tax delinquency. According to the Philadelphia City Council website, between 2010 and 2016, Philadelphia saw a 1,210 percent increase in tax foreclosure filings. The website explains that “a City Council analysis found that the majority of tax foreclosure filings against owner-occupied homes were located in low-income communities of color. In many cases, economically vulnerable homeowners count their home as their sole asset of value.”“We successfully mobilized to stop mortgage foreclosures during the housing crisis, which prevented homelessness, displacement, and mass disruption in our communities,” Council President Darrell L. Clarke (5th District) said. “However, the City—in a well-intentioned effort to increase revenue collections—became far more aggressive in filing tax foreclosures. Contributing to homelessness or deeper poverty by seizing the homes of people in economic crisis is just not good policy.”In addition to the new award from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Authority’s Fair Grant Program, last October the Philadelphia City Council passed legislation to modify the city’s Owner-Occupied Payment Agreement (OOPA), a program designed to help homeowners avoid tax foreclosures. Applying for OOPA relief allows homeowners to avoid foreclosure and set up payment plans, and to roll future tax payments into existing payment plan agreements if they qualify. OOPA applicants can also request to meet with a housing counselor.”Tax delinquencies have been an ongoing problem in the city of Philadelphia,” said Stephen M. Hladik, Partner, Hladik, Onorato & Federman, LLP. “At the end of 2017, there were over 70,000 parcels in the city that had delinquent taxes. With that scope of delinquent properties, the tax loss to the city is staggering, exceeding $150 million. At that sum, the city is forced into foreclosing on properties to try and recoup the lost taxes. The city reviewed where the predominant delinquencies were and it became apparent that the less affluent sections of the city were often the places where the percentage of properties that were delinquent were higher. This new program serves to benefit the hard-hit homeowners, and it offers a means for owners to make monthly payments on taxes and still maintain a roof over their heads. Property owners may also be able to be free of interest and penalties, depending on their income level. A sizable grant from the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency will greatly assist. The program sounds like it will be a good way for homeowners to obtain relief and keep their houses. In turn, it will benefit lenders and servicers, as it could lessen the burden of advancing taxes to prevent tax sales.”“We applaud the Philadelphia City Council for stepping in to assist those homeowners who are struggling to pay their property taxes,” said Bradley J. Osborne, Managing Attorney at Richard M. Squire & Associates, LLC, a Legal League 100 member firm that operates in Pennsylvania. “The tax foreclosure prevention measures are similar to those measures implemented by the city during the last economic downturn. Our office has successfully worked side-by-side through the Philadelphia County Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Program with the four agencies awarded the grant to assist seniors. And while the measures are intended to benefit the homeowners in Philadelphia, they also result in additional protection for mortgage lenders and servicers by virtue of slowing down the tax foreclosure process which can negatively impact their mortgage liens.” Foreclosure Assistance for Homeowners Struggling with Property Taxes Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, Government, Journal, News Previous: More College Grads Moving Back Home Next: Mr. Cooper Brings the Power of AI to Homeowners The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Postcenter_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: David Wharton Foreclosure Foreclosure Relief 2018-05-08 David Wharton The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago May 8, 2018 4,025 Views Tagged with: Foreclosure Foreclosure Relief David Wharton, Managing Editor at the Five Star Institute, is a graduate of the University of Texas at Arlington, where he received his B.A. in English and minored in Journalism.

What is Causing the Decline in Single-Family Authorizations?

first_imgBuildFax’s latest Housing Health Report revealed year-over-year declines in single-family housing authorizations, as they have fallen 2.75% since 2018.Also seeing declines are existing housing maintenance volume (0.75%) and existing remodel volume (0.33%). The report uses U.S. property condition and history data to deliver economic trends, includes information on the states that had the largest year-over-year increase in average maintenance costs. “So far, 2019 has revealed a dichotomy in the housing market—new and existing construction activity is declining steadily, while the spend on these projects is increasing consistently,” said BuildFax CEO Holly Tachovsky. “Spending is rising, in part, due to increased tariffs on construction materials, tightening labor and construction markets and an uptick in natural disaster activity. Colorado, Florida and Washington have seen the greatest increases in maintenance spend year over year, which may indicate a relationship between elevated construction costs and national affordability challenges. We expect that construction spending on the existing housing stock will eventually start declining as demand slows. As we move further into 2019, we will be monitoring whether these indicators begin to move in parallel to evaluate if such a shift in the housing market is realized.”The report states that while maintenance volumes declined 0.75%, spending rose 6.68%, and remodel spending grew 2.47% despite a decline in the volume of remodels. Colorado had the highest year-over-year construction spending increase at 26.50%. Washington and Florida also saw increases of 17.79% and 13%, respectively. “These increases are likely a result of the lasting impact of tariffs on construction materials like steel and lumber, a nationwide skilled labor shortage, and increased stress from natural disasters,” BuildFax stated. Although there are sections of the nation that saw increases in construction costs, the latest Producer Price Index (PPI) shows that the prices paid for materials used in residential construction decreased 1.1% in June, breaking a four-month trend of increases. The decrease in the PPI, released by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), is only the fifth time in the past two years where home prices fell. Prices for building materials have decreased 1.6% year-over-year, and June 2019’s decline is stark contrast from June 2017 to June 2018 when prices grew 8.8%.
