Foreclosures continue improvement trend

From HousingWire:

Foreclosure inventory declined nearly 25% in February

National foreclosure inventory, or any house within the foreclosure process, in February decreased by 23.9% annually, according to CoreLogic’s February 2016 National Foreclosure Report.

Completed foreclosures, total homes lost to foreclosures, was down by 10% annually in February, according to the report. Nationwide, the number of completed foreclosures reduced by 4,000 from 38,000 in February 2015 to 34,000. This is down 71.3% from its peak in 2010.

“Job creation averaged 207,000 during the first two months of 2016, and incomes grew over the past year,” CoreLogic chief economist Frank Nothaft said. “More income and improved household finances have helped bring serious delinquency rates down in nearly every state.”

“However, serious delinquency rates increased in North Dakota and West Virginia, two states affected by price declines for the energy fuel each produces,” Nothaft said.

Since September 2008, there have been about 6.2 million completed foreclosures, and since 2004 there have been 8.2 million.

Total foreclosure inventory in February, about 434,000, was about 1.1% of all homes with mortgages. This was down from 1.5% last year. The foreclosure inventory rate in February was the lowest it has been since November 2007.

The total mortgages in serious delinquency also declined by 19.9% in February, according to the report. About 3.2% of mortgages fall under this category, also the lowest rate since November 2007.

    From DS News:

    New York AG Asks Watt to Get Moving on Principal Reduction

    As the debate over whether or not to offer principal reduction to struggling homeowners has returned to the forefront of housing policy, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has written a letter to FHFA Director Mel Watt asking the Director to “broadly and quickly” implement a plan offering principal reduction to homeowners facing foreclosure.

    Schneiderman, who during his time in office has been a fierce advocate of preventing foreclosures and foreclosure relief scams, said in his letter on Friday that offering principal reduction is “a policy that I have advocated strongly for, that I am pleased FHFA is now seriously evaluating, and that should be deployed broadly and quickly to homeowners in desperate need of this relief from the continuing damage caused by the housing crisis.”

    The principal reduction issue pre-dates Watt’s tenure as FHFA Director, which began in January 2014. In 2012, then-FHFA Director Ed DeMarco issued a statement after careful consideration that there would be no policy change with regard to principal reduction because “the anticipated benefits do not outweigh the costs and risks.”

    Watt re-opened the issue and ignited the hopes of housing advocates and at-risk homeowners when, on March 22 in a public speech, he said that he would make a decision in the next 30 days as to whether or not there would be a policy change to offer principal reduction. The calls for principal reduction reached a fever pitch in early April when Watt’s fireside chat-style event on housing policy at Harvard Law School was cut short due to unruly behavior of protesters demanding principal reduction.

    It is no secret that I am strongly anti-establishment, anti-incumbent, and anti-career politics. Why does it come as any surprise that I would applaud an outsider upsetting the status quo?

    Actually, I don’t support any of the candidates. I think both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump are exactly the same candidate, inflammatory extremists both riding the coattails of unrest. Both unqualified, and both will be completely ineffectual. Zeitgeist. The rest of the lot is like the shit you scrape off the bottom of an old garbage can.

    Timpone recused himself from that case because DiVincenzo had hired Timpone’s nephew, at his request. That left ELEC without a quorum, thanks to two vacancies Christie has left on ELEC.

    This looks to me like a conspiracy between Timpone and Christie to protect DiVincenzo. Given that this is ELEC single most important case, Timpone should have resigned to make room for someone else to fill his seat. By staying on ELEC and recusing himself, he has given DiVincenzo a free pass, at least for now. The case is still on appeal.

  9. Trump’s long con:

    1. Set himself up to win the most delegates, but fall *just* short of the majority.
    2. Chaotic convention where GOP eventually nominates (doesn’t matter) on the nth ballot.
    3. Trump then uses his media prowess between the convention and the election to evangelize about how corrupt the GOP is, urging everyone to write in, not just his name for POTUS, but write in alternative votes for *every* GOP spot on the ballot. Promises to form new party based on fair and consistent primaries in every state where voters are never marginalized again.
    4. Democrats win not only POTUS (again it doesn’t matter who), but an ultra-majority of both houses of Congress.
    5. Just like the first two years of Obama, Dems prove that all they know how to do is splinter and accomplish nothing (good), except this time they can’t even blame the GOP because they lost most of their seats.
    6. Trump starts the GNP (Grand New Party) to nominate and elect supporters to Congress during the mid-term elections, easily beating minority GOP and ineffective ultra-majority Dems who have accomplished nothing(good) and now have no one to blame.
    7. Two years later Trump wins a landslide victory for GNP party.
    8. Gets his GNP majority congress to pass an amendment that removes term limits from office of POTUS.
    9. Additional amendment passed allowing POTUS to fire any congressman or senator if he/she is called to the boardroom.

  10. [9] Trump-Sanders GNP ticket in 2020. Hillary is defeated, as an incumbent, in Dem primary in favor of a disabled trans-gender candidate of Hispanic descent.

    re#7 – Nearly ever Irish American family has a cop, fireman, teacher or other organized labor union member in their family. My family is loaded up with them. Then factor in the first immigrant generation to become citizens that are alive today. They came of age during the Kennedys.

  13. [11] No POTUS will over the next 4 years. The pensions will take care of themselves. Google “Detroit”.

    she won’t take away their benefits, SS, Medicare, Pensions etc.

  14. Pension checks will shrink 6.7 percent for 12,000 Detroit retirees beginning in March last month. Making matters worse, many also must pay back thousands of dollars of excess interest they received. It’s a bitter outcome of Detroit’s record $18 billion municipal bankruptcy for David Espie, 58, who will repay the city $75,000 in a lump sum while his $3,226 monthly pension is cut by $216. As retirement costs swallow larger portions of U.S. city budgets, Detroit’s bankruptcy plan resolved a pension crisis with creative strokes, though at a cost to retirees who thought their benefits were untouchable.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-02-05/detroit-pension-cuts-from-bankruptcy-prompt-cries-of-betrayal

  15. [14 cont’d] “I feel betrayed,” said Espie, who may abandon plans to move to Alabama. He recounted family get-togethers he missed during the 30 years he spent in the Department of Public Works picking up trash and plowing snow. He also pays $500 a month more for health insurance than a year ago. “It’s devastating to me; it’s affecting my health,” Espie said. In addition to absorbing pension cuts, almost 11,000 retirees and current employees must repay an estimated $212 million in excess interest they accrued in a city-run savings plan, which is separate from the pension fund. The annuity plan guaranteed a 7.9 percent annual return even when the pension lost money, and employees also received bonus interest in some years.

    They can either pay the money back in a lump sum or have it deducted gradually from their monthly pension check with 6.75 percent interest. The savings plan drained $756.2 million from the pension fund from 1985 through 2007 to pay for what former Detroit emergency manager Kevyn Orr said was excess interest. The savings fund produced six-figure nest eggs for some — on top of their pensions — including at least two $1 million accounts.

He has left a litter of explosives on the field that will be used over and over when times comes. It is his own doing. Should have left Megan Kelly and Cruz’s wife alone. Trump’s election will hinge on former Bernie Sanders supporters and whether they truly care about another corporate shill in office or not. I don’t see them pulling lever for Donald. They could also stay home on election day and help Donald. In the end, they always aligned ideologically with Hillary. They just liked idea of Sanders. Push will come to shove.

    “In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members…

    It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons. Should he succeed in that endeavor, he could alter the political and security landscape of the Middle East, which as we know all too well, effects American security.

    This is a very difficult vote, this is probably the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make. Any vote that might lead to war should be hard, but I cast it with conviction.”

Nixon was forced to resign because it was his own party that was preparing to begin impeachment hearings, not the opposition.

    The same tactic does not work to disparage those of the left, because the rank and file of the left have no desire for integrity — an appeal to honesty holds no attraction to them. Yeah Hillary is a lying, conniving, [blank] as sure as the day is long. Mind-numbed Fabius, A-none, et al. are going to march in lock step to the voting booth to pull the lever for Hill come hell or high water, mostly because that’s what the left-controlled media tell them to do.

    Eddie and Joyce, I was very much anti-war in 2003 (Chomsky fan), but I did notice that there was a huge support for the war in the US (even thought there were protests all over the world). People that spoke against were labeled as traitors. Max Cleland got voted out because he was not “patriotic enough”.

    As a senator from NY, if she ignored both the administration and very strong public support, she would have gone down in flames. It was a forced vote. So, now the pitch forks coming out for Hillary because of the Iraq war vote seems a bit of faked outrage (especially when quite a few of the complainants probably were labeling opponents of the war as traitors at that time).

    I think most people feel Ttump can win and we just want a good seat to watch the whole thing burn.

  62. [53] Sorry, Pumps. It’s just that when I hear clichés like, “they seem to like guys like me.”, my mind jumps to the lowest common denominator. Danny Zuko and beauty school dropout. Good for you that your missus has a semester or two of junior college and some nice memories from the girl’s shower to fall back on while you cut and paste obsessively. Cue Todd Rundgren, “…I just want to bang on grim’s blog all day”

    Weak!. Is this some kind of put down on Boston schools?

    Btw, school as in college. I’m not stating the college, don’t want to deal with the put downs that come from jealous haters like yourself.

    [34] I highly doubt my daughters will become beauticians.

    The laugh will be on you when your daughter’s marry someone just like me. My wife went to school in Boston, and they seem to like guys like me.

    Grim got the Irish Pygmy to leave when I couldn’t?

    I feel so inadequate.

  64. [56] grim – I disagree on that one. She is the panderer, not him. I think it’s more of a spectacle, and up his alley, if he convinces Sanders to ride shotgun. He is an independent, right? Alternatively, he picks a Kenyan-American that was born here as an anchor baby (complete with long-form birth certificate) and raised abroad. Nahhh. Scratch that last one. OK, Romney, but he has to pose on his knees. Scratch that one too, makes assassination too likely. OK, got it!!!!! Dan Quayle!!!!

    Trump will not name a VP until he knows if it is Hillary – if so, he will name a woman.

  65. [68] Nom – Is that a euphemism or gay slang?

    Grim got the Irish Pygmy to leave when I couldn’t?

    I feel so inadequate.

    McDullard,
    I completely agree there are hypocrites everywhere… never an acceptable excuse or defense though that “the other side did it too!”. (an excuse that’s used soooo often here by the left vs right folks)

    [70] expat

    no

  68. Captain Nom Deplume, Besotted Rummy says:

    [57] chifi

    I would have worded it differently but he’s right. I would have said there is no “fundamental” right to jerk off but the collorary is that it isn’t banned either.

  69. Grim says:

    75 – We need permission to think or urinate too?

  70. joyce says:

    “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”

    I think those qualify as fundamental.

    [77] Joyce

    To quote you, since when did that stop anyone in DC?

  72. D-FENS says:

    Water tests in Hopatcong prompted officials to shut off the water supply in schools due to lead. But you know like flint Michigan or whatever.

  73. Comrade Nom Deplume, Recovering From The Slopes says:

    [75] redux

    But as they teach you in law school, you can argue anything, and I think that perhaps Cruz is wrong, that there is a fundamental right to whack off. It hasn’t been recognized as such but were I to argue it on the law, I’m sure I’d prevail

    Ironic that I’m helping anon by defending his sex life from legal attack.

    I seriously have to get back to real work here.

  74. Comrade Nom Deplume, Recovering From The Slopes says:

    [76] grim

    “Liberty presumes an autonomy of self that includes freedom of thought, belief, expression, and certain intimate conduct.” Lawrence v. Kansas, 2003 (Kennedy, J.)

    I think that covers thinking and peeing

  75. Notice no weigh-ins from plumpy tonight? My guess is he was caught lots of times my his Mom exercising his _______-handed rights.

  76. chi says:

    To be clear, I believe Cruz was referring to battery powered small appliances.
