Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The widely reported recent slowdowns in the U.S. economy—only 151,000 jobs added for January and 1.0 percent GDP growth in the fourth quarter, for example—were reflected in the Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index for February, which tumbled from 97.8 in January down to 92.2 (1985=100) in February.Consumers were pessimistic all around in the survey, as the Present Situation Index dropped from 116.6 down to 112.1 from January to February, and the Expectations Index declined from 85.3 to 78.9 during the same period. Over-the-month, fewer consumer said they believe that business conditions are good, while more said they believe that business conditions are bad; more consumers thought jobs were hard to get while fewer consumers said they believe that jobs are plentiful.Also from January to February, fewer consumers said they believe that business conditions would improve in the next six months, while more consumers said they though business conditions would get worse. The share of consumers who anticipate more available jobs and anticipate an increase in their income in the next six months declined over-the-month, while the share who anticipate fewer available jobs and a reduction in their income increased.“Consumer confidence decreased in February, after posting a modest gain in January,” said Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board. “Consumers’ assessment of current conditions weakened, primarily due to a less favorable assessment of business conditions. Consumers’ short-term outlook grew more pessimistic, with consumers expressing greater apprehension about business conditions, their personal financial situation, and to a lesser degree, labor market prospects. Continued turmoil in the financial markets may be rattling consumers, but their assessment of current conditions suggests the economy will continue to expand at a moderate pace in the near-term.”The findings of the Conference Board survey are in line with other recent economic forecasts. According to Fannie Mae’s economic outlook released in mid-February, deteriorating financial conditions and increasing global concerns appear to be hindering economic growth despite a forecasted pickup in consumer spending, a relatively healthy labor market, and residential investment and government spending that is strengthening. As a result of the economic slowdowns, Fannie Mae lowered its forecast for the number of rate hikes that will occur in 2016 from three down to two.“Continued turmoil in the financial markets may be rattling consumers, but their assessment of current conditions suggests the economy will continue to expand at a moderate pace in the near-term.”Lynn Franco, the Conference Board“We believe that the tightening labor market will further boost wages and help increase consumer spending,” Fannie Mae chief economist Doug Duncan said. “Recent survey data reaffirm a relatively healthy jobs market with increased job openings, hires, and quits, as well as decreased layoffs and decent gains in average hourly earnings.”Also according to the Fannie Mae report, home price appreciation is expected to outpace income growth, but the good news for the housing market is that the home price appreciation will continue to lift underwater borrowers into positive equity.“We expect our 2016 theme ‘housing affordability constrains as expansion matures’ to hold true as home price gains are likely to outpace household income growth as the year continues,” Duncan said. “However, the expected increase in home prices should help lift underwater mortgages and create a healthier housing market. Meanwhile, increased household formation, low mortgage rates, and easing credit standards and more access to credit for residential mortgages are positive factors for a continued housing expansion. We expect constraints on single-family homebuilding to ease and builders should be able to increase production at a faster pace this year, while the gain in multifamily construction is expected to be more modest than last year.”The Conference Board reported that the share of respondents planning to buy a lived-in home in the next six months declined over-the-month from 3.7 percent in January to 2.5 percent in February, while the share planning to buy a new home in the next six months also dropped over-the-month from 1.2 percent to 1.1. percent. Despite the monthly declines, however, the trends shown recently in those two categories are climbing from their trough, and February’s level of consumer confidence is relatively high by historical standards, according to the National Association of Home Builders.The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) will release the February Employment Summary on Friday, March 4. The next Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting will conclude on March 16.center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Recent Economic Slowdowns are Eroding Consumer Confidence Tagged with: Consumer Confidence Housing Market U.S. Economy Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save About Author: Brian Honea Previous: Lawmakers to HUD and FHFA: Get with the Program Next: Existing-Home Sales Recovering From Temporary TRID Setback in Daily Dose, Featured, News Home / Daily Dose / Recent Economic Slowdowns are Eroding Consumer Confidence Subscribelast_img read more

JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon on Wells Fargo’s CEO Search

CEO Jamie Dimon criticized Wells Fargo’s decision to announce their CEO Tim Sloan’s departure without a succession plan already in place, according to an article from Bloomberg.Allen Parker, Wells Fargo’s General Counsel, has served as interim CEO since March.Sloan’s departure came days after a congressional hearing and criticism from regulators over the lender’s scandals.“I’d be surprised if regulators wanted that to happen because it’s irresponsible,” Dimon said at a banking conference in New York. Dimon said he had no knowledge of what led to Sloan’s exit.Bloomberg said that a Wells Fargo representative had declined to comment.Succession plans have been a topic of interest at JPMorgan in recent months as well. In April, the bank shifted responsibilities for two of its top female executives—Marianne Lake and Jennifer Piepszak—positioning them to gain further experience that could one day help them succeed Dimon.“It’s important to move people around,” Dimon said Tuesday. “I think we have two stars,” he said, referring to Lake and Piepszak.A Bloomberg report earlier this month stated that Wells Fargo’s directors have asked senior executives for input, and some are lobbying for Parker to stay on as CEO, according to people familiar with the discussions.“Although I do not know Allen well personally, I do know that he’s very highly regarded both internally and externally, especially in legal and regulatory matters,” former Wells Fargo CEO and Chairman Richard Kovacevich said in an interview with Bloomberg.As Wells Fargo is allegedly considering outside candidates only, this eliminates current senior executive Mary Mack, Head of Consumer Banking, from consideration, according to Markets Insider. Among the female executives named as possible candidates by Markets Insider are Marianne Lake, CFO of JPMorgan/Chase; Thasunda Duckett, CEO of Chase Consumer Banking; Barbra Desoer, CEO of Citibank North America; Jane Fraser, CEO of Citigroup Latin America; and Karren Larrimer, Head of Retail Banking and Chief Customer Officer at PNC Financial Services Group.

Rosen announced that Quicken Loans and the United States and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) reached an agreement in the case of United States v. Quicken Loans Inc., stating that Judge Mark A. Goldsmith entered an order dismissing the lawsuit. The case originated in 2015, when the U.S. Department of Justice filed a lawsuit claiming that Quicken Loans had originated hundreds of FHA-backed loans between September 2007 and December 2011 that were not eligible for the program because of Quicken Loans’ lenders allegedly overstating borrowers’ income so they could qualify for the loans, Crain’s Detroit Business reports.“This resolution is in the interests not only of the parties, but of the home-buying public,” said Rosen in a statement. “All parties fully understand the important role the FHA program plays in helping middle-class Americans access home financing, and this resolution allows the parties to move ahead together with that mission and to ensure their future relationship. I commend the parties for investing the time and effort through this mediation, which will help support the continuation and the strengthening of the partnership between Quicken Loans and HUD in jointly serving American homeowners.”“Today, HUD reached an important resolution with Quicken Loans so that, together, we may continue offering safe and sustainable mortgage financing to qualified, creditworthy borrowers,” said Amy Thompson, HUD’s Assistant Secretary for Public Affairs. “FHA relies on its partnerships with lenders, such as Quicken Loans, to advance home buying opportunities for Americans, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with Quicken Loans.” “We have always been proud of our growing participation in the FHA program. Every day teachers, police officers, factory workers and so many others who are the backbone of our communities, utilize Quicken Loans for this very important loan program,” said Jay Farner, Quicken Loans CEO. “Now that this dispute is behind us, we look forward to cultivating and expanding our relationship with both FHA and HUD so we can increase Americans’ access to home financing and home ownership,” Farner added.

Unemployment rates skyrocketed, leaving cash-strapped renters struggling to make ends meet and landlords lowering rates in the hopes of keeping their tenants, and local economies, afloat. Rent increases slowed sharply from an average of 2.9% in the first quarter of 2020 to 1.7% in May and 1.4% in June.”“Increases in single-family rent prices slowed dramatically this spring as the nation began to face the economic impact of the pandemic. As job losses slowed in July, rent growth steadied,” said Molly Boesel, Principal Economist at CoreLogic. “However, increases in rents should remain sluggish until the economy starts to experience employment gains.”At 4.7%—and for the 20th consecutive month—Phoenix, Arizona, experienced the highest year-over-year hike in single-family rents in June. That said, compared to its average growth rate of 6.5% in Q1 2020, rent growth there has begun to decelerate. Phoenix was followed by Tucson, Arizona, which inched up 4.1% in rent price growth in June, followed by Charlotte, North Carolina at 3.4%.Meanwhile, CoreLogic reports that areas that traditionally depend on tourism to help shore up their economy saw annual declines in their rent prices: Honolulu, Los Angeles, Miami, and Boston all saw declines, with Honolulu experiencing the worst drop at -1.3%.CoreLogic studies a quartet of tiers of rental prices for a precise look at prices of single-family rentals. In June, prices took a hit across all tiers, with a sustained widening gulf between the low-end and high-end tiers. In June, the national single-family rent growth across the four tiers, and the year-over-year changes, were as follows:Lower-priced (75% or less than the regional median): 2.5%, down from 3.7% in June 2019Lower-middle priced (75% to 100% of the regional median): 1.5%, down from 3.1% in June 2019Higher-middle priced (100% to 125% of the regional median): 1.4%, down from 6% in June 2019Higher-priced (125% or more than the regional median): 1%, down from 2.5% in June 2019 Previous: Mortgage Connect Earns Place on Financial Services List Next: Industry Webinar Spotlight: Mitigating Risk, CWCOT Changes Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more
