The Benefits of Opportunity Zones

first_img California is facing a housing shortage and affordability crisis, but Opportunity Zones may serve to alleviate these concerns. In a post on Forbes, Ridaa Murad, founder of BREAKFORM | RE. and Co-Founder of BEDROCK | Group discusses the pros of investing in any of the 879 federally designated Opportunity Zones (the most in the country).According to a report from ATTOM Data Solutions earlier this year, homes in Opportunity Zones are cheaper than the average home.The report found that roughly 80% of these zones had median home prices in the Q2 2019 that were below the national figure of $266,000, and that half had median prices of less than $150,000.Additionally, compared to the surrounding regions, median Q2 2019 prices in about one in four zones were less than 50% of the typical value in the Metropolitan Statistical Areas where they exist. Within Opportunity Zones, 86% had median Q2 2019 sales prices that were less than the median sales price for the surrounding Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA). Roughly 26% had median sales prices less than half the figure for the MSA. Only 14% had median sales prices that were equal to or above the median sales price in the MSA.“As investors, we always want to maximize our return, and as humans, we want to do good and make a positive impact in our communities,” Murad said. “Opportunity zones give investors the chance to do well financially while also contributing to the betterment of local communities that desperately need economic improvement.”Murad covered the social impact of opportunity zone investment, including a long-term hold strategy associated with Opportunity Zones, as the investment must be held for a period of 10 years. Additionally, Zones force developers to secure land for communities where there is a demand, and the alternative building processes are cost-friendlier.Another bonus for investors and homebuyers is that the nontaxed exit gains eliminates price-gauging.“When the profit isn’t taxed, it removes the need to squeeze every last penny out of the buyer on the front end,” Murad said. “The opportunity exists to create a business that doesn’t have to price-gauge because back-end profits remain intact.”Find Murad’s complete commentary here.

Delinquencies Could ‘Jump Significantly’ with Rising Unemployment

first_imgAt the start of the year, just 3.5% of mortgage loans were in some stage of delinquency, according to the CoreLogic Loan Performance Insight Report released Tuesday. That’s down from 4.0% a year earlier, marking a 21-year low for the report. Just 1.2% of loans were seriously delinquent—90 or more days past due—which is down slightly from 1.4% last year and the lowest level recorded since April 2000. The percentage of loans in foreclosure was 0.4% in January, matching the rate from a year ago. Early-stage delinquencies—those between 30 and 59 days past due—accounted for 1.7% of loans, which is down slightly from 1.9% a year earlier. After noting that “home loan delinquency and foreclosure rates were the lowest in a generation before the COVID-19 pandemic hit,” Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist at CoreLogic, went on to say, “recession-induced job losses will fuel delinquencies.”Recent CoreLogic research found that homeowners have an average of $177,000 in home equity. This equity and the forbearance programs available to homeowners will serve as a “buffer,” preventing “wide-spread foreclosures,” Nothaft said. However, even with these buffers, Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic, expects “delinquency rates to jump significantly throughout the year as the economic toll from COVID-19 becomes more evident.” He predicts regions with economies steeped in energy, transportation, and media and entertainment will fare the worst. “The ultimate extent of the higher delinquencies will depend on how quickly the broader economy opens up again and employment levels rebound – both of these factors are uncertain at this time,” Martell said. Meanwhile, Black Knight Financial Services said in its latest Mortgage Monitor Report that if unemployment reaches 15%, 3.5 million more mortgages could fall into delinquency if the relationship between unemployment and delinquency follows a similar pattern as the Great Recession. Luckily, delinquency rates across the nation were low leading into the crisis. The state with the highest percentage of delinquent loans was Mississippi with a rate of 6.9%. The state with the lowest delinquency rate was Colorado with a rate of 1.5%No state experienced an increase of serious delinquencies in January. The highest serious delinquency rates were recorded in Mississippi and New York, where 2.4% of loans were seriously delinquent in January. Louisiana trailed them with a 2.3% serious delinquency rate. The list of top 10 states for serious delinquencies were rounded out by Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, Alabama, Arkansas, Connecticut, and Delaware, all of which had rates of 1.8% or 1.7%. When comparing the 10 largest metros in the nation, CoreLogic found that Miami had the highest overall delinquency rate at 4.8%, while San Francisco ranked lowest at 1.1%. In terms of serious delinquencies, 11 major metros experienced an increase, while 43 metros experienced no change in their serious delinquency rate. At a national level, the share of loans that transitioned from current to 30 days past due was 0.8% in January. Meanwhile, 14.9% of loans that started out 30 days past due in January transitioned to 60 days past due, and 24.9% of those that were 60 days past due transitioned on to being 90 days past due or in serious delinquency status.   in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Sign up for DS News Daily  Print This Post April 14, 2020 2,430 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Krista F.
