Special report

Data on homelessness in the United States is inaccurate. By most measures, the figure is just under 600,000. However, the number of people who are homeless for brief periods is different from those who are permanently homeless – and the numbers have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. For reasons at least partly related to the pandemic, a portion of Americans — up to 35% in some states — say they’ve missed their rent or mortgage payments or have little confidence in their ability to pay next month, according to the U.S. Census Bureau Household Pulse Survey. (These are states where people can’t pay their mortgages.)

Among the aspects of the homelessness problem that are commonly discussed is the fact that the country is far from finding a solution. Another is that solutions, even those that partially solve the problem, have been expensive. According to CNBC, New York City spent $3 billion to support its homeless population in 2019. And by current metrics, New York is the state with the most homeless people per capita in America.

To compile a list of the number of homeless people in each state, 24/7 Tempo reviewed the most comprehensive study of homelessness in America, state of homelessness: 2021 editionpublished by the National Alliance to End Homelessness.

As invaluable as the study is, the authors point out a significant downside to the work:

“The current report,” they point out, “is inspired by the one-time national count that took place in January 2020, just weeks before COVID-19 was declared a national emergency. Thus, the data does not reflect any of the changes brought about by the crisis.

The report examines several aspects of the problem, basing itself first and foremost on demographic and geographical data. The basis of the report is that 580,466 people were left homeless in January 2020. About a third were families with children. Data on veterans and unaccompanied youth were also collected. The study also collected information on homeless people who were housed and those who were not housed.

Men are much more likely to be homeless than women. White Americans are more likely to be homeless than black Americans. However, since there are many more whites than blacks, this number is only of partial value.

Over the past decade and a half, homelessness has started to decline, but has risen again rapidly in recent years. There were 657,248 homeless Americans in 2007. Of course, that was at the start of the Great Recession. It fell to 549,528 in 2016. (These are the richest and poorest states in America.)

Logically, the largest state in the country by population would have the most homelessness. It’s true. California had 161,548 in 2020. This population relationship breaks down based on the next state. New York ranks fourth among states in terms of population behind California, Texas and Florida. It ranked second in the homeless population with 91,271. This is mainly due to the size of this population in New York.

Therefore, raw population may not be the best way to assess homelessness by geography. The study also examines homelessness per 10,000 people of the total population. On that basis, New York State has the highest number at 46.9, followed by Hawaii at 45.6 and California at 40.9.

Mortgage values ​​fall from 2020 high, but new homebuyers still feel the pain | Greg Jericho https://homeassociates.org/mortgage-values-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8bfall-from-2020-high-but-new-homebuyers-still-feel-the-pain-greg-jericho/ Mon, 17 Jan 2022 21:32:34 +0000 https://homeassociates.org/mortgage-values-%e2%80%8b%e2%80%8bfall-from-2020-high-but-new-homebuyers-still-feel-the-pain-greg-jericho/

Iimagine that in November 2019 you looked into a crystal ball and predicted a global pandemic that we would still be grappling with two years later. Would you have thought then that now would be a good time to buy or sell a house?

You might have thought that economic pandemonism and the closing of borders to foreign travelers would signal bad news for the housing market and therefore would be a good time to sell.

After all, in November 2019, the market was rather weak and real estate prices barely increased. So maybe you decided to grab the cash before a crash and laugh all the way to the bank.

If you have, you have clearly forgotten the mantra of the Australian political class: the housing market must not falter.

Thus, two years later, in November 2021, the value of new mortgages taken out was 64% higher than it was two years earlier:

Click here if the graph is not displayed

The series of economic stimulus measures, ranging from historically low interest rates to the home building program, propelled an increase in mortgage borrowing:

If the graph does not appear click here

While there had been a slight slowdown in the growth of new mortgages during the foreclosure in NSW and Victoria, November saw a strong recovery of 6.9% across the country, led by 9% in New South Wales and 7.9% in Victoria:

If the graph does not appear click here

Everything suggests that housing prices will continue to grow strongly, at least for the first half of this year.

Although, thankfully, mortgage growth is not reaching the insane levels seen in mid-2020, when the value of new mortgages rose 160% from year-ago levels, current growth suggests that the annual increase in real estate prices will remain around 15% to 20% for some time:

If the graph does not appear click here

But luckily we have lower interest rates, right? Well… for now.

As I noted last week, the market expects interest rates to rise this year (I must admit I am less bullish). But even still, lower interest rates have not improved affordability as much as one might expect.

Across the country, the average mortgage size has risen sharply during the pandemic.

Among the Eastern States, the average new mortgage has increased between 22% and 25% since November 2019, while in Tasmania it has increased by 31%:

If the graph does not appear click here

This massive increase is not enough to overcome the drop in interest rates.

In New South Wales, the average mortgage in November was $769,459, just over $156,000 higher than it was two years earlier.

If you had taken out a 30-year mortgage in November 2019 worth $613,334, paying the average low mortgage rate of 4.15%, you would have paid $2,981 per month in repayments.

On the other hand, if you had taken out a loan of $769,459 in November of last year at an interest rate of 3.45%, your repayments would be $3,434 per month, or $453 more:

If the graph does not appear click here

This is the issue of housing affordability. It’s fine to talk about low interest rates, but if the principle has risen to the point of reversing the rate cut, then you’re no better off.

It’s always worth remembering that lower interest rates help most people who already have a loan.

Those who took out a loan in Sydney 10 years ago have absolutely benefited from lower rates – their repayments are around $1,000 less – as rising house prices have meant new entrants are less well off:

If the graph does not appear click here

And crucially, those who have taken out loans in the past two years will not benefit from the rate cut – it is the lowest they will ever get.

For first-time buyers, the news isn’t so bad.

The overwhelming majority of the growth in mortgage size has come from those who are likely selling their home and buying a new one:

If the graph does not appear click here

But even here, the average first-time buyer’s mortgage in NSW is up 16% ($82,362) since November 2019. That means paying $173 more per month on average than a first-time buyer who took out a loan two years ago.

And remember it’s $173 additional. The average monthly repayments in New South Wales on a first-time home buyer’s loan paying the reduced mortgage rate of 3.45% are $2,557, or almost $31,000 a year.

So yes, low interest rates make affordability better than it would have with higher rates. But these low rates and tax measures in turn raise prices and therefore affect the size of mortgages.

For new homebuyers, it seems they are still affected anyway.

Rising mortgage rates – highest rate since June 2020 https://homeassociates.org/rising-mortgage-rates-highest-rate-since-june-2020/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 04:04:33 +0000 https://homeassociates.org/rising-mortgage-rates-highest-rate-since-june-2020/

Mortgage rates jumped last week to 3.4%, their highest level since June 2020.

This new 30-year average fixed mortgage rate is an increase of 0.13% from last week’s average rate of 3.27%, the largest weekly increase in more than 10 months.

Last week’s jump is in line with the consensus among housing experts that mortgage rates will rise in 2022. The only question, according to experts, is when and how quickly will they rise?

Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen record inflation and record COVID-19 cases push and pull rates. Despite the uncertainty of the surge in COVID cases, last week’s increase is in line with recent statements by Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell that the Fed expects to hike rates three times in 2022. As the Fed raises rates as the economy improves, mortgage and refinancing rates are sure to follow, experts say.

Here is an overview of the evolution of rates and experts’ forecasts for the future.

ABOUT THE LATEST MORTGAGE RATES

Last week’s average mortgage rate is based on mortgage rate information provided by national lenders to Bankrate.com, which, like NextAdvisor, is owned by Red Ventures.

2022 mortgage rates and the housing market: what to expect

Experts predicted that we would see an increase in rates and volatility in December and through 2022, and much of it has been. Last week’s increase in the 30-year average fixed mortgage rate from 3.27% to 3.4% is the largest weekly increase in the past 10 months. And the last time the rates were this high was when the pandemic started in June 2020 – over a year and a half ago.

Expect the increases to continue, experts say.

Average 30-year fixed mortgage rates will reach 4% by the end of 2022, said Joel Kan, an economist at the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). Kan cites the expected economic growth in 2022 and one of the main reasons for this prediction.

The Federal Reserve’s announcement that there could be up to three rate hikes in 2022 reinforces the belief that rates will continue to rise in 2022.

Part of this is because the economy is better prepared to deal with new waves of rising COVID cases than it was at the start of the pandemic, says Logan Mohtashami, HousingWire data analyst. Subsequent increases in COVID cases have not had as much of a negative impact on the economy as the initial wave, so even as the pandemic continues, rates will likely continue to rise, he says.

If you look at the Delta variant, “economic growth has continued relatively slowly,” Danielle Hale, chief economist at Realtor.com recently told us. The new variants will have less of an impact on real economic activity, she said.

The majority of consumers share the opinion of the experts. According to a recent housing study by Fannie Mae, 56% of Americans believe mortgage rates will rise in the next 12 months.

While current rates aren’t as low as the under 3% we saw earlier this year, they’re still very low historically – and still at attractive refinancing levels. They remain well below the levels of almost 4% at which they were before the pandemic.

Fannie Mae estimates that up to 38% of people with a mortgage could reduce their rate by at least 0.50%, which would translate into significant savings over the life of the loan. These lower interest rates could also benefit homebuyers, as it would mean less interest paid in the long run.

Mortgage rates last week compared to previous years

Last three years 30-year average fixed mortgage rate
january 2020 3.81%
January 2021 2.95%
January 2022 3.4%

Mortgage rates bottomed a year ago when they hit record lows below 3%. That’s almost half a percent lower than current mortgage rates. But two years ago, the 30-year average fixed mortgage rate was 3.81%, which is significantly higher than today.

The sharp drop in rates in 2021 was largely the result of the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Federal Reserve’s reactive policies to support the economy. Almost 9 million workers reported losing their jobs in 2020, according to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). In an effort to avoid widespread foreclosures, the Federal Reserve has implemented policies to lower interest rates to make housing more affordable. Lower interest rates can help keep home buying affordable and encourage homeowners to refinance to lower monthly mortgage payments.

What borrowers need to know about these mortgage rates

Here’s what buyers and homeowners should know about expected mortgage rates.

New buyers

Experts believe the real estate market is starting to cool. But buyer demand is expected to remain high, Kan recently told us. “We have a lot of young people in the population entering, or already at, the age of homeownership,” says Kan. But as house prices have risen over the past year, you might need a larger down payment to stay within an affordable range. While a low mortgage rate can help offset down payment expenses, a large home loan can overshadow the potential savings of a low mortgage rate.

Most experts say to go out of sync with the market and buy when the time is right for your personal situation. If you’ve stood on the sidelines hoping the prices will drop, you might be disappointed, Glen Brunker, president of Ally Home, recently told us. Since home price appreciation is expected to increase, market timing is not a recommended strategy, he said.

Whatever your decision, housing experts recommend planning ahead by:

  1. Savings of at least 10%, ideally 20%, down payment
  2. Know how much house you can afford
  3. Don’t rush into buying a home
  4. Stick to a home buying budget
  5. Find an experienced real estate agent with whom you are comfortable

Existing owners

Rising mortgage rates may make refinancing seem like no longer a good option, but that is not necessarily true. A good rule of thumb is that if you can get a new mortgage rate 0.75% to 1% lower than your current rate, it might be a good idea to refinance. Homeowners who are reluctant to refinance may want to consider it. Mortgage rates are expected to continue on their upward trajectory in the long term, so it may be worthwhile to analyze the numbers with a few lenders to see if you can benefit.

Interest rate and term refinancing could go a long way in reducing not only your monthly payments, but also the amount of interest paid over the life of the loan. With home values ​​across the country having increased in the past year, you can also benefit from the increase in your home equity by refinancing with cash. Cash-out refinances fell from 37% to 49% of total refinances in the first half of this year, according to mortgage data analysis firm Black Knight. A withdrawal refi can be a useful tool to help pay off high interest debt, pay for college expenses, or fund a home improvement project.

Ohio State Football Scholarship Chart 2022 https://homeassociates.org/ohio-state-football-scholarship-chart-2022/ Thu, 06 Jan 2022 10:00:00 +0000 http://161.35.220.217/staticwp-paydayjv/wp/10434-thestudyvoxfoundation.com/ohio-state-football-scholarship-chart-2022/

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State football kicks off the new year with a full roster for the 2022 season.

Some pending decisions for the upcoming NFL Draft – and some potential roster attrition by late spring – will determine how much leeway the Buckeyes have to add more players for this fall.

The addition of Tanner McCalister as a transfer brought the total player count to 87. This does not include players who have been in the NFL Draft before, such as Chris Olave, Nicholas Petit-Frere, Tyreke Smith and Garrett Wilson. This includes those who have yet to announce their draft plans, such as Sevyn Banks and Zach Harrison.

Ohio State’s 2022 class stands at 20 after Omari Abor and Carson Hinzman post-signing commitments. More players could join next week. According to NCAA rule, teams must be reduced to 85 stock players by the start of the 2022 season. For the spring, only the first 10 known registrants will count towards this stock exchange number.

However, this does mean that the state of Ohio must be selective when deciding to add more players through the transfer portal.

Here is the latest update:

Elders: 13

Juniors: 17

Bank of San Antonio operator acquires stakes in San Antonio Legacy Mutual Mortgage https://homeassociates.org/bank-of-san-antonio-operator-acquires-stakes-in-san-antonio-legacy-mutual-mortgage/ Tue, 04 Jan 2022 18:58:19 +0000 https://homeassociates.org/bank-of-san-antonio-operator-acquires-stakes-in-san-antonio-legacy-mutual-mortgage/ Texas Partners Bank, which operates the Bank of San Antonio and two other banks, said on Tuesday it had acquired stakes in Legacy Mutual Mortgage.

San Antonio-based Texas Partners Bank said Legacy’s mortgage platform expands the scope of the bank’s service offerings.

“This was an opportunity to increase our mortgage offerings in a very significant way,” said J. Bruce Bugg, executive chairman of Texas Partners Bank. “It’s all about scale, really, in this industry. “

The terms were not disclosed.

San Antonio-based Legacy closed $ 2.7 billion in home loans for more than 7,200 families last year. Sixty percent of Legacy’s business is in the San Antonio and Austin areas, although it operates in other cities in Texas as well as Nashville and Denver. It has been around for 17 years.

“The partnership with Texas Partners Bank is the next step in Legacy’s growth trajectory,” Legacy CEO Dan Diepenhorst said in a statement. “Our loan officers will have the opportunity to partner with the bank to expand lending solutions to help our communities grow.”

Legacy, which primarily generates loans and then sells them in the market, will become an operating subsidiary of the bank, Bugg said. Texas Partners Bank will own a minority stake in the limited partnership, but 100 percent of the general partner of Legacy. Diepenhorst and its partners are the other limited partners.

Legacy’s presence in the San Antonio and Austin markets allows Texas Partners Bank to examine mortgages that could be candidates for the bank’s loan portfolio, Bugg said. The bank would have the right of first refusal but would have no obligation to enter mortgages on its books.

“We estimate that we will increase approximately $ 70 million in mortgages through this partnership, but a lot of those mortgages will not appear on our balance sheet,” Bugg said.
