Citigroup Starts to Show Distressed Consumers the Money

money-twoCitigroup was credited with more than half a billion dollars in consumer relief toward fulfilling its obligation of $2.5 billion under the terms of a July 2014 settlement July 2014 settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice and five states for selling toxic residential mortgage-backed securities to investors before the financial crisis, according areport from an independent monitor.

Settlement monitor Thomas Perrelli, a former associate U.S. attorney general and now a partner with Washington, D.C.-based law firm Jenner & Block, credited Citi with $512,456,710 in consumer relief for the period covering April 1, 2015, through June 30, 2015. The amount provided during Q2 2015 raised the cumulative total of consumer relief credited to Citi to $689,132,468, still less than a third of the settlement’s requirement of $2.5 billion. The bank has until 2018 to pay the remaining $1.8 billion. The report was Perrelli’s fourth since the settlement was reached and the first since September 2015.

2-1 Citi graphAccording to the monitor, Citi was credited with $512.4 million in consumer relief during Q2 2015 in three different categories or menu items: First lien principal forgiveness ($3.95 million covering 70 transactions); rate reductions/refinancing ($78.5 million covering 2,002 transactions); and principal forgiveness where foreclosure is not pursued ($430 million covering 10,260 transactions). Citi requested credit for relief for 91 loans to affordable rental housing projects with a purported valuation in excess of $500 million; the monitor is currently working with Citi to validate the credit that the bank has submitted for the 91 loans.

Citigroup settled with the DOJ and five states (California, New York, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Delaware) for a total of $7 billion in July 2014 amid claims that the bank misled investors as to the quality of mortgage-backed securities it sold. The portion of the penalty that went to the DOJ was $4.5 billion, which was the largest civil penalty to date under the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act (FIRREA). Citigroup agreed to pay $2.5 billion in consumer relief as part of the settlement.

Click here to see a complete copy of the settlement monitor’s January 2016 report. In the September 2015 report, the monitor credited the bank with $162.7 million in consumer relief for the period covering November 22, 2014, through March 31, 2015.

14,164 Homes Sold Yesterday! Did Yours?

14,164 Homes Sold Yesterday! Did Yours? | Keeping Current Matters

There are some homeowners that have been waiting for months to get a price they hoped for when they originally listed their house for sale. The only thing they might want to consider is… If it hasn’t sold yet this fall, maybe it’s not priced properly.

After all 14,164 houses sold yesterday, 14,164 will sell today and 14,164 will sell tomorrow. 14,164!

That is the average number of homes that sell each and every day in this country according to the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) latest Existing Home Sales Report. NAR reported that sales are at an annual rate of 5.17 million. Divide that number by 365 (days in a year) and we can see that, on average, over 14,100 homes sell every day. Sales are at the highest pace of 2014.

We realize that you want to get the fair market value for your home. However, if it hasn’t sold in today’s active real estate market, perhaps you should reconsider your current asking price.

Moorpark Short Sale-Growth In 2015??

By Chris B Johnson Realtor,  Moorpark Short Sale , Thousand Oaks Short Sale,Rebound-Time2Sell

Simi Valley Short Sale, Moorpark Short Sale  Ventura County Short Sale,

Fannie Mae Expects Slow But Sure Housing Growth in 2015

Fannie Mae Economic & Strategic Research GroupWhere the U.S. housing market is concerned,Fannie Mae chief economist Doug Duncan said he is anticipating overall weaker home sales in 2014 than in 2013. But he expects that overall home sales in 2015 will post their best performance since 2007 despite seeing only moderate growth for the year.

The forecast on the state of the nation’s housing market and on the overall economy were included in the Fannie Mae Economic & Strategic Research Group‘s October 2014 Economic Outlook, published on Thursday.

“We lowered our expectation for housing starts just slightly to one million units for 2014, but our view of mortgage originations has not changed,” Duncan said. “Our estimate for 2013 was in line with the recent release of 2013 data under the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, and our projection of total production in 2014 is little changed at approximately $1.1 trillion. For 2015, we are cautiously optimistic that ongoing labor market improvements, low mortgage rates, rising inventories, and some easing of lending standards will boost home sales by roughly 5.0 percent. However, we still believe housing will continue along its upward grind rather than have the breakout year some are expecting.”

Economic growth has been slow on a global scale this year, but that has not dimmed the outlook for the U.S. economy, according to the findings of Fannie Mae’s ESR Group. Real economic growth in the U.S. seems poised to exceed 3.0 percent for the second half of 2014, which is expected to provide a solid basis for continued growth into 2015.The slow global economic growth may prevent the Federal Reserve Board from making any interest rate policy changes until Q3 2014, it has not prevented a positive outlook for the economy in the U.S.

“Given the expected strengthening economic activity in the U.S. in the second half of the year, we continue to expect to finish just above 2 percent growth for all of 2014,” Duncan said. “The risks are tilted to the downside due to current geopolitical events in Russia, Ukraine, Hong Kong, and the Middle East, as well as the economic slowdown in the Eurozone, China, and Japan. However, recent data suggest these factors have not significantly swayed American consumers. Real consumer spending is poised to pick up in the second half of 2014 from the first half, due in large part to improving labor market conditions, continued declines in gasoline prices, and a subdued pace of inflation.”

Rates Haven’t Been This Low Since 2013

The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage took another dip this week, staying below the 4 percent threshold and keeping borrowing costs at the lowest rate in more than a year. It marks the fifth consecutive week that mortgage rates decreased.

Freddie Mac reports the following national averages with mortgage rates for the week ending Oct. 23:

  • 30-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.92 percent, with an average 0.5 point, reaching a new low for the year and dropping from last week’s 3.97 percent. Last year at this time, 30-year rates averaged 4.13 percent.
  • 15-year fixed-rate mortgages: averaged 3.08 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 3.18 percent average. A year ago, 15-year rates averaged 3.24 percent.
  • 5-year hybrid adjustable-rate mortgages: averaged 2.91 percent, with an average 0.5 point, dropping from last week’s 2.92 percent average. Last year at this time, 5-year ARMs averaged 3 percent.
  • 1-year ARMs: averaged 2.41 percent, with an average 0.4 point, rising from last week’s 2.38 percent average. A year ago, 1-year ARMs averaged 2.60 percent.
