Newspaper Files Motion to Unseal Depositions in Fairholme GSE Profits Lawsuit

McCraw from the Times’ Legal Department in the filing. “News organizations are routinely permitted to intervene and be heard on issues involving public access to judicial proceedings and documents, including challenges to discovery protective orders, pursuant to Rule 24 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, either permissively, or , at times, as a matter of right.”Florida-based mutual fund Fairholme Funds, one of the GSEs’ largest investors, sued the government in July 2013 over the sweeping of GSE profits into Treasury – a practice which began in August 2012 after an amendment to the original bailout agreement. The year 2012 was the first year of profitability for the GSEs after the bailout. Fairholme CEO Bruce Berkowitz believes the sweeping of GSE profits shortchanges investors.A judge in the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia dismissed Fairholme’s suit and a similar suit by hedge fund Perry Capital in September 2014, but a judge in the federal claims court revived Fairholme’s suit in January 2015.McCraw also wrote in the filing that the Times believes the government has failed to show “good cause” for sealing the DeMarco and Ugoletti depositions. To show good cause to keep the documents sealed under law, parties must show that disclosure of the information “will cause a clear and serious injury” via a “particular and specific demonstration of fact, as distinguished from stereotyped and conclusory statements.” The filing by the Times contends that the government has not done this – and that a confidentiality order does not trump the requirement to show good cause to keep the documents sealed.”The courts have repeatedly recognized that disclosure of discovery is particularly appropriate when a lawsuit sheds light on the performance of government agencies and entities – which is precisely the case here,” McCraw said in the filing.The filing states that the public’s interest in the underlying facts of the Fairholme case are “undeniable.””The litigation has deep roots in the government’s decision to provide an emergency bailout to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in the midst of a grave threat to the national economy,” McCraw wrote. “The case directly addresses how the government is going about recouping public funds used in the bailout and whether other investors are being treated lawfully. The government should not be able to hide from the public – voters and taxpayers – the facts that were central to the decisions that the government made as part of the far-reaching effort to safeguard the U.S. economy.”Click here to see a copy of the motion filed by the New York Times.

Distressed Sales Share 2 Years Away from ‘Normal’

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Tagged with: CoreLogic Distressed Inventory REO Share Save The percentage of residential home sales that were distressed sales (REO and short sales) fell below 10 percent in March 2016, and it is estimated that at its current rate of decline will be back to its “normal” pre-crisis level by the middle of 2018, according to data released by CoreLogic on Thursday.The distressed sales share registered at 9.9 percent in March, which represented a decline of 2.7 percentage points over-the-year, according to CoreLogic. REO sales accounted for about 6.8 percent of all residential home sales in March, while short sales accounted for about 3.2 percent. The REO share was down by 2.4 percentage points over-the-year and is less than a third of what it was at its peak (27.9 percent in January 2009). The short sale share has remained below 4 percent since the middle of 2014.The overall distressed sales share in March 2016 (9.9 percent) is less than a third of what it was at its peak in January 2009, when distressed sales accounted for nearly a third of all residential home sales (32.4 percent). At its current rate of decline, CoreLogic estimates the distressed sales share is about two years away from reaching its “normal” level.“While distressed sales play an important role in clearing the housing market of foreclosed properties, they sell at a discount to non-distressed sales, and when the share of distressed sales is high, it can pull down the prices of non-distressed sales,” said Molly Boesel, Senior Economist with CoreLogic. “There will always be some level of distress in the housing market, and by comparison, the pre-crisis share of distressed sales was traditionally about 2 percent. If the current year-over-year decrease in the distressed sales share continues, it will reach that ‘normal’ 2-percent mark in mid-2018.”All but eight states experienced year-over-year declines in distressed sales in March. The largest distressed sales share during the month were Maryland (19.8 percent), Connecticut (18.9 percent), Michigan (18.1 percent), Florida (17 percent), and Illinois (16.7 percent), while the smallest distressed sales share for March went to North Dakota (2.4 percent).Among the 25 largest core-based statistical areas (CBSAs), the ones with the highest distressed sales share in March were Baltimore (19.8 percent), Chicago (19 percent), Tampa (18.6 percent), Orlando (18.2 percent), and Newark (14.8 percent). The CBSA with the smallest cash sales share in March was Denver (2.6 percent).

Airbnb May Bring Unforeseen Consequences to Borrowers

first_img Since Airbnb’s launch in 2008, the home-sharing service has grown to currently include more than 2 million listings in 191 countries. Because of this, some home builders are developing new plans with the home-sharing industry in mind but for lenders, Airbnb may bring more trouble than anticipated, according to a recent post from The Home Story presented by Fannie Mae.Dean Wehrli and Aaron Stubblefield, consultants with real estate firm John Burns Consulting, conducted an apartment feasibility study for a developer who considered setting aside space for Airbnb rentals. Fannie Mae reports that they found these units were likely to generate more revenue than those used for conventional long-term leases.“We sense a trend developing, especially if the apartment markets soften,” Wehrli and Stubblefield write. “Apartment developers — even those building large rental complexes — could set aside a portion of their units as a kind of Airbnb rental pool to maximize revenue and market flexibility.”Despite the seemingly obvious perks of this service, Airbnb could cause homebuyers potential problems as well. The largest of which comes in the form of violating the terms of the resident’s mortgage agreement. Fannie Mae says that this can be possible when using a property purchased as a residential dwelling for short-term rentals could violate your mortgage agreement. Additionally, if the lender decides regular use as a short-term rental could cause the property’s value to decline, the lender could call the loan due, meaning the owner would need to pay off the balance or lose the house.Because most conventional single family and condominium Fannie Mae compliant mortgages contain a regulation where the owner agrees that the mortgaged property will remain the borrower’s principal place of residence and not an investment property, homeowners who use Airbnb may unknowingly be violating their mortgage agreements. These homeowners find themselves converting the property into essentially a rental property and usually unbeknownst to the homeowner, investment property mortgages typically carry a higher interest rate and are sold in a different category in the secondary mortgage market.Fannie Mae says that this also holds true for a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. When an owner turns a home into a bed and breakfast, it increases the likely hood of new risks for both the homeowner and the insurance company underwriting those risks. For example, if there is an unfortunate accident involving an Airbnb guest, the insurance company could deny the claim due to converting the nature of the insured property into a rental property. Because demand has risen for Airbnb, many municipalities have sought to either regulate or limit short-term rentals within their borders.

The paper in question was entitled “A Skeptical View of the Impact of the Fed’s Balance Sheet,” and its authors included authors include Morgan Stanley Senior Desk Economist David Greenlaw, Bank of America Merrill Lynch Head of Global Economic Research Ethan Harris, University of Wisconsin economics professor Kenneth West, and University of California economist James Hamilton.As reported by CNBC, the paper argues that “the consensus view that the Fed’s quantitative easing lowered 10-year Treasury yields by 1 percentage point (100 basis points) was overstated, and that Fed asset purchases did not have as much impact on long Treasury yields as generally believed.” Instead, it claims that the effects of the Fed’s crisis-era actions on 10-year yields were temporary.”Going forward, we expect the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet to stay large,” the paper states, continuing to argue that “the most important and reliable instrument of monetary policy is the short-term interest rate.”New York Fed President William Dudley countered the paper’s arguments in a statement posted on the New York Fed’s official website. Dudley said, “While additional study of the effects of large-scale asset purchase (LSAP) programs should be encouraged—as it furthers our understanding of the use of these unconventional monetary policy tools—the paper’s findings do not, in my mind, invalidate the use of LSAPs when the Federal Reserve is operating at or close to the zero lower bound for short-term interest rates. That is the key issue—not the magnitude of the effects of LSAPs or whether short-term interest rates should be the primary tool of monetary policy.”Dudley went on to argue that “LSAPs remain useful to have in the toolkit for those times when the short-term interest rate tool may not be available.”On Friday, the Federal Reserve delivered its semi-annual Monetary Policy Report to Congress, noting widespread improvements in the U.S. economy and an uptick inflation near the end of 2017. The report stated the Fed’s belief that inflation will continue to stay at or near the Fed’s target rate of 2 percent during 2018. The report did not shed much light on whether the Fed plans three or four interest rate hikes in 2018, but more may be revealed when new Fed Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress on Wednesday, February 28.

The Impact of Student Loans on Millennial Homebuyers

Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Home / Daily Dose / The Impact of Student Loans on Millennial Homebuyers The Impact of Student Loans on Millennial Homebuyers Subscribe  Print This Post According to many reports, student loan debt is a significant hurdle for millennials when buying a home. But new numbers from the First American Economic Center contradicts those findings, showing that student loan debt is more likely to delay the timing of homeownership, but it’s not necessarily a deal breaker. To examine the impact of student loan debt on house-buying power, the report looked into the median household income of a prospective first-time home buyer, who is, by definition, a renter. “Renter’s house-buying power is based on the prevailing 30-year, fixed mortgage rate (4.64 percent in January), and assumes a 5 percent down payment and that one-third of pre-tax income is used for the mortgage,” the report reads.The average student loan debt for those that complete their bachelor’s degree is approximately $30,000. Based on a 6 percent Federal direct student loan interest rate, the average monthly payment is just above $300 per month, or nearly $4,000 per year. The report pointed out that this reduces median household income for those that complete their bachelor’s degree and, therefore, reduces house-buying power by $23,000 to $323,603. While the reduction in house-buying power is not ideal, renter house-buying power for those with a bachelor’s degree is still more than $120,000 greater than renters with just a high school education.So, how does higher house-buying power influence home buying? Quoting the latest available household census data in 2017, First American stated that homeownership rates for those with a bachelor’s degree are nearly 8 percent higher than those with a high school degree. This difference becomes more exaggerated when comparing those with a college degree to those who do not complete high school—nearly a 25 percent difference in homeownership rates.In short, education pays off when it comes to home buying power. Nine out of 10 millennials say their college education was worthwhile and have already paid off their debt or will in the future. Student-debt adds up, but higher education leads to higher income wherein the increase in income attributable to higher education far outweighs the impact of student loan debt. Although the price of college is high, in the end game not going to college may cost more. Read the full report here.

first_img Twitter Man arrested in Derry on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences released A pensioner prosecuted by a council who accused him of running a bar in his garden shed has been acquitted.Donegal District Court heard that Chief Supt Terri McGinn, visited the shed and had no complaints people were being charged by 72-years-old Patsy Brogan at his home in the Bluestack Mountains.Judge Kevin Kilrane said there was no evidence anybody was being charged money at the bar.
