What Happened to Wages?

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Share Save One day after announcing that unemployment claims rose for the third straight week, the Labor Department announced that job growth surged past expectations in June. The latest figures from the Bureau of Labor Statistics showed that non-farm payroll jobs reached 222,000 last month, well past the expected gain of 180,000.The Labor Department credited increased worker hours for the surge. The average workweek increased from 34.4 to 34.5 hours per week from may to June. Employment increased in health care (up 37,000 jobs), social assistance (up 23,000), financial activities (up 17,000), and mining (up 8,000).Employment in other major industries, including construction, manufacturing, wholesale trade, retail trade, transportation and warehousing, information, and government, however, showed little change over the month.Curt Long, Chief Economist at the National Association of Federally-Insured Credit Unions (NAFCU), reminded that while the growth in jobs is great news, “wage growth has stalled, which will add to fears that low inflation may not improve any time soon.”Average hourly earnings increased four cents, just 0.2 percent, in June, to $26.25. That’s better than the 0.1 percent gain in May, though not by much. However, year-over-year, the average hourly wage was up 2.5 percent in June, or 63 cents an hour. Than compares to an uptick of 2.4 percent in May. In June, average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 4 cents to $22.03.The latest numbers showed divisions among Fed officials over how great a concern sluggish wage growth actually is, Long said. “While we may see the Fed trimming its balance sheet later this year, another rate hike is looking less likely.”Also causing some consternation among economists is the unusually low unemployment picture. In May, unemployment hi a 16-year low at 4.3 percent. In June that number crept upwards to 4.4 percent. While that could signal greater confidence in the labor market, it could also be an artificial optimism in that more people are simply looking for work.The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) was unchanged at 1.7 million in June. Long-term unemployed accounted for 24.3 percent of all unemployed. Over the year, the number of long-term unemployed was down by 322,000.

Homeowner Needs After Wildfires Fall Short of Expectations

Of these only 184 are currently living in a direct housing option such as manufacturing housing units, recreational vehicles, or in directly leased units, according to statistics released by the Department of Homeland Security (FEMA). The statistics also revealed that eight joint local assistance centers and disaster recovery centers were set up to provide face-to-face disaster assistance for the 16,653 survivors.Low-interest disaster loans from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is also available with  SBA having approved 927 loan applications from homeowners and 110 applications from business owners. Despite these steps, the demand for government provided housing is low in the county as many displaced residents find accommodations through their friends and family or through their insurance companies.According to an article published by The Press Democrat,  Robert Presapane, Division Supervisor, Sonoma County for FEMA has said that more than two-thirds of the 3,200 applicants had found new accommodations on their own. “The fire victims seeking housing from FEMA represent less than 6 percent of those the agency found so far compared to a historical norm of around 10 percent from other disasters,” Presapane said.FEMA had housed 82 applicants at the fairgrounds site in southeast Santa Rosa and had nearly 40 more RV spots available there. Another 53 applicants were being housed by FEMA in apartments.The article said that federal and local officials acknowledged that the housing need could still evolve. “FEMA had not been able to reach 580 housing-eligible applicants through multiple phone calls, possibly reflecting some fire victims who registered for government aid assistance and then decided they didn’t require it,” Presapane said.

FHFA Examines the Appraisals Process

first_img  Print This Post Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / FHFA Examines the Appraisals Process The FHFA has released a new paper, authored by Jessica Shui and Shriya Murthy, that examines how appraisals conducted by appraisal management companies compare to those conducted by lenders themselves. What’s the verdict? According to the FHFA paper, “the results indicate no clear evidence of any systematic quality differences between appraisals associated and unassociated with AMCs.” In other words, the FHFA data suggests that the appraisal results provided by AMCs are statistically very similar to those provided by lenders working without a middleman.According to the FHFA paper, the theoretical advantages of lenders employing an AMC include providing extra quality assurance to the appraisal process, providing a firewall to prevent lenders from pressuring appraisers, and providing both reduced credit risk and management time for lenders. Critics of AMCs, however, argue that AMCs “offer no quality assurance contribution,” set unrealistic deadlines for appraisers, and contribute to an overall shortage of appraisers in the market. The FHFA paper argues that the latter factor occurs due to the AMCs taking a cut of the payments to appraisers, resulting in lower appraiser compensation that attracts fewer workers to the field. This, in turn, can “lead to delayed closings and rush fees that increase costs to homebuyers,” according to the report.“Our analysis indicates that, when compared to non-AMC appraisals, AMC appraisals generally demonstrate a similar degree of overvaluation,” states the FHFA report. “At the same time, AMC appraisals are seen to be more prone to contract price confirmation and super-overvaluation. Beyond valuation statistics, AMC and non-AMC appraisals seem to share a similar propensity for mistakes, a somewhat-unexpected finding given that the former tend to use a greater number of comparable properties.”The FHFA study involved a dataset drawn from GSE data and stretching from Q4 2012 to Q1 2016. The dataset includes over 5 million appraisals conducted within that period, with 3.7 million done by AMCs and 1.6 million done by non-AMC appraisers.The study came away with four main conclusions. First, both AMC and non-AMC appraisals “share a similar average degree of overvaluation, as captured by the percentage gap between the appraised value and the contract price.” Second, a similar ratio of mistakes was found within each category. Third, AMC appraisals were “more prone to contract price confirmation and ‘super-overvaluation,’” in spite of, fourth, “employing a significantly greater number of comparable properties on average.”A 2017 white paper released by HouseCanary highlighted both the importance of accurate appraisals and the increasing role technology will play in the sector going forward. “The future of appraisals is already signaling a sea change for nearly every segment of the real estate industry, and the signal is only growing louder,” the study noted. “We are not far from a time when investors can see the potential aggregated rental yield of a nationwide portfolio in a matter of minutes—or get a value estimate for a property they see on their morning commute using nothing more than a mobile phone app.”You can read the full FHFA working paper by clicking here.

Customer expectations are rising—not due to competition within the industry, but because disruptors like Amazon are changing the dynamic of what customers expect from service providers. Lenders and servicers must start looking beyond their direct competitors to ensure they don’t miss out on critical opportunities. This trend is not limited to the mortgage industry. In fact, it’s something we’re seeing across various customer satisfaction studies in sectors as diverse as automotive, property and casualty insurance, telecom, and financial services. Businesses of every type struggle to find the right balance between high tech and high touch customer interactions. What is unique to the mortgage industry, however, is just how late the broader industry is to the tech game.You can chalk it up to a combination of strict regulation, years of strong refi demand, and entrenched business models, but, when compared to the rest of the financial services landscape, the mortgage and home lending business as a whole has been slow on new tech development. Rising consumer demand for self-service technology and a more competitive overall marketplace are conspiring to buck that trend, but, based on our data, the industry still has a long way to go.Our recent Primary Mortgage Origination (PMO) and Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) studies provide an excellent case study for the potential risk to the industry of not getting the tech formula right. The PMO study found significant shifts in borrowers going online to complete their applications, with first-time buyers’ use of digital channels rising from 22 percent in 2016 to 37 percent in 2017. Experienced borrowers’ digital utilization grew from 30 percent to 44 percent over the same period.  Likewise, our HELOC study found that digital is becoming a much more significant factor among younger borrowers, with 58 percent of millennials gathering information online via desktop computers and 48 percent gathering information online via smartphone or tablet.It is also worth noting that millennials were the most active single generation of homebuyers in 2017, according to the National Association of Realtors. The risk in this trend for lenders is this: as more customers shop for loans online, the potential for competition increases, and when that happens, the digital experience becomes an increasingly critical part of the customer journey.  In our HELOC study, for example, 58 percent of study respondents indicated that they considered at least one other lender during the shopping process. For the combined category of Gen Y/Gen Z customers, which includes all mortgage customers born after 1977, that number jumps up to 78 percent, with nearly half considering two or more lenders.  The more borrowers explore their options, the higher the risk that the value of their existing relationship reduces.  A significant 47 percent of HELOC customers reported the main reason for choosing their lender was a current relationship, but this falls to 28 percent among Gen Y/Gen Z, which appears to have a clear connection to the use of digital shopping channels.  Another potential risk is customers turning to alternative lending solutions like personal loans that seek to fill similar needs and are geared to customers shopping online.Personal interaction will play a key role for most borrowers for the foreseeable future. That said, with a growing number of players offering online and mobile capabilities, customers are increasingly open to digital shopping for mortgages. They are likely to expect a minimum level of skills in the not-too-distant future in all phases of the borrowing and servicing experience.  As this transition continues to unfold, mortgage lenders and servicers must differentiate their digital offerings and create digital customer experiences that are in line with increasing customer standards.Lenders need to understand that the mortgage customer experience is a journey that starts with initial consideration and evaluation and extends through usage. Increasingly, each step of that process is occurring through digital channels, which are areas that the mortgage industry has been notoriously slow to develop and refine. Now is the time to invest in getting that tech formula right for consumers. Subscribe  Print This Postlast_img read more

Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta President Raphael Bostic told Bloomberg that he is “not seeing the storm clouds generating a storm yet,” while Thomas Barkin from the Richmond Fed said that with unemployment low and consumer spending, it’s “hard to make a case for stepping on the gas.’’“From an employment perspective, the economy continues to perform in a very positive way,’’ Bostic said in Atlanta. “And inflation, the numbers I think are not as bleak as some others might suggest. For me, in terms of performing on our dual mandate, the aggregate numbers look pretty good.’’“Inflation may well be closer to target than one might think,’’ Barkin said at a conference in Victor, Idaho. “I don’t see the current levels of inflation or inflation expectations as a trigger for additional accommodation.’’Bostic and Barkin did not vote this year on the policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), and cited the Dallas Fed’s trimmed mean measure of inflation, which has also been highlighted by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and has come in more consistently around 2% in recent months. The Fed’s dual mandate includes goals of maximum sustainable employment and price stability, which the central bank has defined with its 2% inflation target.According to Powell, despite the positive economic indicators elsewhere, the homebuilding industry is feeling the pressure of high costs for labor and materials. Additionally, Powell notes that many workers who left the industry following the 2008 crash have yet to return.“Now you have a shortage of skilled labor, so it’s hard to get people on the job, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and other people. No matter what you pay them, just finding people to do that work,” said Powell on CNBC.Powell told Sen. Tina Smith that “What we hear from the homebuilders is that it’s a series of factors that are holding them back and challenging affordability.” This includes immigration policies and tariffs.

OCC Debuts Program to Expand Financial Inclusion

first_img fcd1aa2d-5b26-4754-ab6b-8342360620f8The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is teaming with leaders in the financial services industry and civil rights organizations on a new program designed to increase access to credit and capital by underserved communities.The new Project REACh–Roundtable for Economic Access and Change–will focus on policy and structural issues at both local and national levels, with the goal of widening the scope of financial inclusion. Acting Comptroller of the Currency Brian P. Brooks acknowledged Project REACh was created in response to the wave of social justice protests that occurred after George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis police custody.“The recent civil unrest across our country emphasizes that too many people have been left out of our nation’s economy,” said Brooks, who hosted the first Project REACh roundtable meeting at the OCC on July 10. “While we applaud others who have made large financial contributions to address immediate needs, Project REACh will focus on policy and structural changes that can help more people participate in our economy and prosper in the same way so many others have.”Brooks added that one of the structural barriers to be addressed by this endeavor involves the status of nearly 50 million Americans who lack a credit score.“That does not mean those individuals are uncreditworthy, but it likely means they cannot get a traditional loan,” he stated. “We can fix that and similar problems that will make access to credit easier and more affordable for millions of people.”Project REACh’s participants from the financial services industry include Citigroup CEO Michael Corbat; JPMorgan Chase Co-President and COO Gordon Smith; Huntington Bank Chairman, President and CEO Steve Steinour; and Michael Weinbach, CEO of Consumer Lending at Wells Fargo. The civil rights organizations participating in the project include the NAACP, National Urban League, and U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.The OCC’s endeavor is part of an increasing wave of attention focused on racial inequities within the consumer credit sector. Last week, Redfin released a report that found 15.9% of African Americans were rejected in their mortgage applications, compared to only 7% of white applicants. Last month, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) proposed a five-point plan to increase homeownership among African American homeowners and narrow the rate gap between white and African Americans. In April, Zillow published a data analysis that determined nonwhite households faced a greater level of housing insecurity related to the economic tumult in the COVID-19 pandemic than their white counterparts.  Print This Post OCC Debuts Program to Expand Financial Inclusion Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Share of Mortgages in Forbearance Drops Next: New Law Extends Protections for Reverse Mortgages The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / OCC Debuts Program to Expand Financial Inclusion Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Related Articles Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: OCC underserved borrowerscenter_img Phil Hall is a former United Nations-based reporter for Fairchild Broadcast News, the author of nine books, the host of the award-winning SoundCloud podcast “The Online Movie Show,” co-host of the award-winning WAPJ-FM talk show “Nutmeg Chatter” and a writer with credits in The New York Times, New York Daily News, Hartford Courant, Wired, The Hill’s Congress Blog and Profit Confidential.
