foreclosure-montageEight national banks,  Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Citibank, HSBC, OneWest Bank, PNC, U.S. Bank, and Wells Fargo  saw the performance of their first-lien mortgages improved in the fourth quarter of 2014, while the delinquency rate on those mortgages and the foreclosure activity continued to decline, according to a quarterly report on mortgage performance by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) released Friday.

The mortgages covered in the report comprised about 45 percent of all outstanding residential mortgages in the United States – about 23.1 million mortgages with principal balances totaling about $3.9 trillion as of December 31, 2014.

Foreclosure inventory dropped by 39.7 percent year-over-year in Q4 down to 315,022, and Home retention actions, which included modifications, trial period plans, and shorter-term payment plans, totaled 195,577 in Q4, a decline of 19.5 percent year over year.

Negative Equity continues being a Serious Concern Despite Year Over Year Decline!

HARP-Refinance

While the percentage of homes in the United States with negative equity has declined substantially since the fourth quarter of 2013, they experienced a slight increase quarter-over-quarter in Q4 2014, according to CoreLogic‘s Q4 2014 Equity Report released last Tuesday.

CoreLogic reported that 10.8 percent of all residential homes were underwater in Q4, this is about 5.4 million properties approximately, which was down from 13.3 percent  in the same quarter a year earlier. The Q4 total was up slightly from the 10.3 percent that was reported for Q3 2014 – an increase of 3.3 percent.

Despite the year-over-year decline in the percentage of underwater residential properties, negative equity remains a serious issue, according to Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. For the full year of 2014, 1.2 million borrowers regained equity – but nearly five and a half million properties remained in negative equity as of the end of the year after approximately 172,000 homes slipped into negative equity from the third quarter to the fourth quarter in 2014.

Approximately 10 million of the nearly 50 million residential properties with a mortgage in the United States, which is about 20 percent of these properties have less than 20 percent equity, a condition known as under-equitied.

Es 2015 el Año de los Primeros Compradores?

Es 2015 el Año de los Primeros Compradores?

Una de las predicciones de la Asociación Nacional de Realtors es que en el 2015 las oportunidades imagesCAQEZEKYpara comprar casa serán mucho mejor, y se espera que los primeros compradores que estuvieron fuera por un tiempo a consecuencia de la crisis hipotecaria reaparezcan a materializar el sueño de la casa propia.

Los efectos financieros residuales de las pérdidas durante la recesión impidieron la entrada de la generación “Millennials” en el mercado hipotecario.  Ahora con el incremento laboral, aumentos de empleo y recuperación de la economía las oportunidades de comprar casa son mas atractivas que nunca.

Aun más, si el acceso al crédito continua ampliando y mejorando, vamos a estar viendo números substancialmente considerables de compradores jóvenes en el mercado.

La generación “Millennials” mostrara un crecimiento significativo en 2015, particularmente a medida que la economía continúa recuperándose.

Como siempre analiza tus finanzas   antes de comprometerte a la compra de tu casa, y mantente informado de los opciones y programas que más te benefician.  No te olvides de buscar ayuda professional.  Preguntas??? Llámame 714-963-7462.

Foreclosure Beware!

Foreclosure Beware!

We are experiencing one of the biggest foreclosure filling increases for the last four years.

The number of foreclosure filings experienced a big jump from September to October alone. These filings include but not limited to notice of defaults, scheduled auctions, and bank repossession.  According to RealtyTrac this is the largest month-over-month jump since the peak of foreclosure activity in March 2010.

However even though Foreclosure filings reported were into a considerable 123,109 U.S. residential properties in October,  fortunately still represented an 8 percent decline overall in the number of foreclosure filings from October 2013.  This is equivalent to one house for every 1,069 residential properties in the U.S. reported a foreclosure filing in October based on the latest report from RealtyTrac.

These numbers did not take us by surprise due to that over the past three years an average of 8 percent monthly uptick was scheduled for foreclosure procedures in the country.

On the other hand, REO activity (lenders repossessing properties via foreclosure) increased by 22 percent from September. The largest month-over-month increase since June 2009.  Overall, lenders repossessed 27,914 U.S. residential properties in October, as reported by RealtyTrac which is an agency that monitor housing foreclosure activities in the country.
