Will real estate crash as forbearance programs approach their horizon?

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
Will we be facing a wave of foreclosures in the coming months that will drive down home prices and send the real estate market into another 2009 crash? At first glance, the numbers don't look good for real estate. In August, CoreLogic reported that 6.6 percent of mortgages were in some state of delinquency — a 2.9 percent rise from the same time last year.
This paints a disturbing picture of our current economic situation amid the corona virus outbreak. Pandemic-related unemployment still hobbles the unemployment rate. Many homeowners are not bringing in the income necessary to make up missed payments. Others who may be current are also one or two payments away from disaster.
Government forbearance programs can help those in late stage keep their homes for now, the end of those programs may throw many more into foreclosure.
But the numbers deserve a second look. According to Black Knight Inc. ...

By Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems Real Estate.
As politicians in our legislatures grind on trying to agree on how much less out-of-work Americans can receive in unemployment payments, the clock is ticking for home-owners trying to figure out a way to make the mortgage payment next month. For those of you who have never been in this situation, this is a reminder that you do have options to get help.
Temporary Mortgage Relief Due to Coronavirus Pandemic

It's from T3-Sixty, a monthly brief providing analysis on the most important trends and developments in real estate, as well as a quick digest of the most notable news in the industry.

UPDATE: Mortgage forbearance programs to help New Yorkers survive.

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems

The financial crisis coming out of the COVID-19 pandemic is causing a great deal of pain for many home owners unable to afford their monthly mortgage payments. Many lenders and financial institutions are offering forbearance programs to relieve some of the pressure.

Forbearance is when your mortgage servicer or lender allows you to temporarily pay your mortgage at a lower payment or pause paying your mortgage. Forbearance does not erase the amount you owe on your mortgage. You will have to repay any missed or reduced payments.

It is possible to defer a payment during your mortgage term, but you'll need your lender's cooperation. If you are dealing with a temporary financial hardship, ask your lender for forbearance. To help you avoid foreclosure, a lender may let you defer a payment or two.

Under forbearance, your loan payments are postponed (or reduced) but interest continues to accrue during the E ...

How will unemployment rates affect housing sales?

From Vanessa Saunders, MBA, MIMC , Broker Owner, Global Property Systems
Ten million Americans lost their jobs over the last two weeks. The next announced unemployment rate on May 8th is expected to be in the double digits. Because the health crisis brought the economy to a screeching halt, many are feeling a personal financial crisis. James Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, explained that the government is trying to find ways to assist those who have lost their jobs and the companies which were forced to close (think: your neighborhood restaurant). In a recent interview he said:
“This is a planned, organized partial shutdown of the U.S. economy in the second quarter. The overall goal is to keep everyone, households and businesses, whole.”
That’s promising, but we’re still uncertain as to when the recently unemployed will be able to return to work.
Another concern: how badly will the U.S. economy be damaged if people can’t . ...
