Analyzing Mortgage Delinquency Performance

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post About Author: Donna Joseph Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Declining unemployment rates and rising home prices have helped reduce delinquency rates, according to Archana Pradhan, Senior Professional, Economist at CoreLogic. In her blog titled “Mortgage Delinquency Rates for All Loan Types Continue to Fall”, Pradhan indicated that the serious delinquency rate for September 2018 was 1.5 percent, representing a 0.4 percentage point decline compared with September 2017. The blog based on information from the CoreLogic Performance Index revealed that the serious delinquency rates for Federal Housing Administration (FHA), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and conventional loans were 3.7, 1.9 and 1.1 percent as of September 2018—representing an 11-year low. CoreLogic data shows the serious delinquency rate for FHA loans is more than three times higher than the serious delinquency rate for conventional loans, partly because of the rise in FHA to conventional refinancing since 2013, Pradhan said. FHA to conventional refinances accounted for about 10 percent of all refinances in 2017 compared to 2 percent in 2012.Pradhan pointed out that a closer look reveals that today’s delinquency rates are influenced by older loans, wherein about 67 percent of the conventional loans that were seriously delinquent in September 2018 were originated between 2003 and 2009 compared to just 23 percent of seriously delinquent conventional loans originated between 2010 and 2018. About 48 percent of the FHA loans and 69 percent of VA loans that were seriously delinquent were originated between 2010 and 2018, the blog indicated.According to CoreLogic, the delinquency rates were much higher for all loan types originated between 2006 and 2008. An improvement in all types of loans recorded gradual improvement in delinquency rates were much higher for all loan types originated between 2006 and 2008. Performance of all types of loans started to improve gradually beginning with the 2009 vintage as the underwriting standards tightened and the economic recovery began mid-2009Another key finding of the report was that loans originated in 2015 and 2016 have performed the best, with the lowest 15-month delinquency rate in a decade. The affordable loans originated in the past three years have a significantly lower delinquency rate than the FHA and VA loans. In fact, the serious delinquency rate for affordable housing loans is only a little bit higher than that of conventional loans. Read the full report here. Previous: The Housing Market’s New Normal?

Senior football managers ensure team runs smoothly

first_imgBehind every sports team, there is a legion of coaches and staffers that makes sure everything goes according to plan. Senior football managers Justin Cullen, Nathan Feldpausch and Claire Kueny are Notre Dame’s 12th men both on and off-season. Cullen oversees the essentials to all football games — equipment. “I’m the head student in charge of the equipment room and the locker room on both a day-to-day basis and on game day,” he said. Cullen’s job involves coordinating the laundry service with St. Michaels, issuing apparel and gear to the players and fixing any equipment malfunctions that occur during practice. Cullen said his role behind the scenes on game day often goes unnoticed. “What people don’t know is when the team goes out for practice, we set up white boards where different positions meet with their position coaches before the game,” he said. “We do this at halftime too.” Away games make his job a little more challenging, he said. “For away games, after halftime we immediately start moving stuff to our semi because the buses and the semi pull out within an hour of the end of the game,” he said. “That process usually takes through the end of the third quarter and sometimes the beginning the fourth quarter.” While Cullen oversees the equipment, Feldpausch is in charge of administration. Feldpausch works under Chad Klunder, director of football operations.  His main job is to monitor the players’ whereabouts, he said. “I actually get issued a work phone that has the player contacts and figure out where they are when they aren’t on time,” he said. “I always jump a little bit when I hear the [work] phone. [I think,] ‘Uh, oh what do I have to do now?’” His most unique job is watching over Irish coach Brian Kelly’s bag, he said. “I got Coach Kelly’s bag [and] I have to keep it with me at all times,” Feldpausch said. “I carry it on the plane with me and make sure it does not leave my sight.” Kueny oversees personnel involved in making the football game days run smoothly. “I’m the personnel manager, so I’m the person responsible for organizing, scheduling and training all the sophomore and junior managers,” she said. During practice, Kueny makes sure the junior and sophomore managers set up the field properly and know what drills are being performed. She is also responsible for setting up the field before the game and helps run the pre-game warm ups. While the program is fairly fluid now, it is in the midst of changes, she said. Next year, the number of football managers will decrease. Only those who express a deep interest in the football program will work with Irish football, while the other managers will specialize in the Olympic sports, Kueny said. “We’ll have a football pool for people who really want to do football and an Olympic sports pool, so people really go towards their interest,” she said. Cullen said the managers support the team both on and off-season, but their hard work comes to fruition 12 Saturdays a year. “We work for about eight months of the year, [but] when you really think about it, it comes down to 12 football games,” he said.last_img read more

Premier League: Michy Batshuayi brace helps Chelsea withstand pressure to sink Watford

first_imgChelsea left it late but came from behind to beat Watford 4-2 and avoid a third straight defeat in the Premier League on Saturday.Pedro had given Chelsea the lead in the 12th minute with a superb curling strike but Abdoulaye Doucoure leveled on the stroke of halftime and Roberto Pereyra put Watford in front four minutes after the break.Watford wasted a number of chances to extend its advantage before substitute Michy Batshuayi headed in the equalizer.Cesar Azpilicueta gave Chelsea the lead three minutes from time and Batshuayi doubled his tally in stoppage time to secure victory for the defending champion.Big win!!! Great spirit from all! Come on @ChelseaFC ??? #KTBFFH pic.twitter.com/hmutJWC35t- Csar Azpilicueta (@CesarAzpi) October 21, 2017Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s relief was clear as he passionately celebrated Azpilicueta’s goal with fans.”We had to dig in until the last minute and we showed our spirit,” Azpilicueta said. “It wasn’t our best game but we got an important win for our confidence after three games without winning.”We started really well and had chances to score the second. The confidence was a bit lower because of their second goal but we didn’t give up. It’s a big win for us. We know it’s a long season and will have ups and downs but this is the first step to get the confidence up.”Chelsea leapfrogged a point above Watford into fourth place. It is six points below leader Manchester City, which hosts Burnley later.”It was a really unfair result. We were in control most of the time,” Watford coach Marco Silva said. “We didn’t create a lot in the first half but we controlled the match. In the second half, for 35 to 40 minutes, I saw one team playing.advertisement”We had clear chances to finish the match at 3-1 but they achieved an unfair result. I think everyone saw this on the pitch.”Chelsea was without a win since September after league losses to City and Crystal Palace. Conte’s side had also chucked away a two-goal advantage in drawing with Roma in the Champions League on Wednesday.The hosts took a controversial lead when they were awarded a corner despite the ball appearing to have come off the foot of Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.The short corner was pulled back to Pedro who curled a fantastic strike in off the top left hand corner of the goal frame.Watford was the better side for much of the first period and netted a deserved equalizer in first-half stoppage time.Chelsea failed to properly clear a free kick and it went out for a throw-in which Jose Holebas launched into the area. David Luiz attempted to head the ball out but it dropped down for Doucoure to fire home through a crowd of players.Watford began the second half much as it had ended the first and took the lead early on when Richarlison picked out an unmarked Pereyra, who drilled the ball past Thibaut Courtois.Richarlison missed two easy chances either side of the goal and Watford had further chances to extend its advantage before Chelsea made it pay for its profligacy.Calling for Batsman ? ??I got yall ??????? pic.twitter.com/tFPHP4sFO5- Michy Batshuayi (@mbatshuayi) October 21, 2017The home side leveled in the 71st when Batshuayi headed Pedro’s cross from the right into the far corner.Another substitute, Willian, had a hand in Chelsea’s third as he crossed for Azpilicueta to head home.Batshuayi secured the victory in the fifth minute of stoppages as Watford conceded possession and he held off Miguel Britos to lift the ball over goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes.last_img read more
