Underwater Borrower Rate Drops Below 17 Percent

first_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Home Equity Home Values Underwater Mortgages Zillow 2014-12-18 Brian Honea in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News The number of U.S. homeowners who owe more on their mortgage than their home is worth has fallen off by nearly half in the last two years, but third-quarter data shows millions are still close to slipping back under.In a report released this week, property data company Zillow estimated that 8.7 million homeowners living in the nation’s top housing markets were underwater on their mortgage as of the end of the third quarter, putting the country’s negative equity rate at 16.9 percent. The U.S. underwater rate peaked at 31.4 percent in 2012’s first quarter.”The market has made terrific strides since bottoming out in late 2011 and early 2012, with millions of underwater homeowners freed in just the past few years, and millions more set to surface in coming months and years,” said Dr. Stan Humphries, chief economist at Zillow.By the end of Q3 2015, the company expects negative equity will drop further to a rate of 15.2 percent.While improving trends in home values and foreclosures have helped push more homeowners into positive equity positions, many are still barely afloat, possessing too little equity to realistically afford the cost of selling their home and buying a new one. Because they’re essentially locked into their houses, those homeowners are unable to contribute to their local stock of for-sale homes and are stuck in the way of entry-level or move-up buyers.Factoring in that group, Zillow estimates the “effective” negative equity rate is closer to 35 percent.On top of that, most of the improvement in home values has happened in the housing market’s highest price tier, where homeowners are only about one-third as likely to be underwater as those in bottom-tier homes (9.3 percent compared to 27.4 percent).The gap is even greater in some of the nation’s still-struggling markets—like Detroit, where nearly 50 percent of homes valued in the bottom price tier were underwater, while 7.6 percent of the highest-priced homes were upside down.Humphries says those problems are partly a reflection of some of the housing market’s current challenges, including low inventory, rapid value appreciation, and weak sales.”None of these problems will be solved overnight, in large part because negative equity will likely be a part of the housing market for years, and easily into the next decade in some hard-hit areas,” he said. “But we’re moving in the right direction, and time will heal all wounds.” About Author: Brian Honea Underwater Borrower Rate Drops Below 17 Percent Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Home Equity Home Values Underwater Mortgages Zillow Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago December 18, 2014 891 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily center_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: HUD Secretary Vows to Make Greatest Use of Allotted Resources in 2015 Next: Fannie Mae Forecasts Economic Growth in 2015 Despite Ending Year On a Low Note The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

If I’d had $20 I would have bought four tickets.” Latest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits PCES one ‘cool’ step closer By Jaine Treadwell Isabell Boyd, a member of the fundraising team, said the team had some difficulty in reaching Witherington but, when they did, he was more than surprised.“I was just proud to make the donation because it is a worthy cause but it’s nice to win,” he said with a smile.Boyd said the need for air conditioning in the gym is great.“During the summer program, it was about 100 degree every day in the gym and that’s too hot for anybody to be able to do anything and enjoy it,” Boyd said.

By The Penny Hoarder Print Article Published 8:17 pm Tuesday, November 23, 2010 Sponsored Content Willie Wright, school principal, agreed air conditioning is needed, especially since school opens in August.“When we have programs in the gym, it gets so hot at times that it’s difficult for parents and grandparents to come to see their children perform,” Wright said. “The cost of the air conditioning will be about $25,000 and the drawing for the Wal-Mart gift certificate brings us another step closer.”Boyd said many people have been involved in the fundraising efforts and cited Diane Smith and Geneva Rodgers as helping to spearhead the efforts.“We have had support from local churches, alumni, the Brundidge Rotary Club, Sen. Wendell Mitchell and Rep. Alan Boothe, Wal-Mart and in-kind services from the Printing Press, so it has been a community effort.Boyd said other fundraisers are in the planning stages, one of those is a play that was performed in Brundidge in 1964.“We hope to bring ‘The Slab Time Convention’ back to the stage,” Boyd said. “It’s a hilarious play and some of us who were in it in 1964 are still around so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”Donations toward the air conditioning of the gymnasium at Pike County Elementary School are greatly appreciated. Those wishing to make a donation may do so at the school office. Checks should be made to the Pike County Elementary School air conditioning fund. All donations are tax deductible.
