Renting Can Help You Buy a Home

"I've got some simple advice for you. That i hope will easier worries so we have roughly a third of americans that are renters. The percent that are renters has gone up over the last many years and many of those renters want to remain renters. Others would like to own a home and the problem is showing their credit history. They will help you qualify for a mortgage so it becomes kind of like a trap is you're renting so there's no mortgage payment history there and so how do you prove your ability to pay your bills as you should well. This is something that is being looked at more and more. I've talked about private services that allow you to turn your rent payment into a trackable essentially form of credit and how that is something that is now available in the marketplace and now a big development is that fannie mae one of the two government owned big lending organizations fannie mae freddie mac or the two bigs behind the curtain of most mortgages issued in the united states now has a new lending guideline that allows renner's to potentially qualify for a mortgage based on their history of how they paid their rent.

Your Rental History Can Finally Help You Qualify for a Fannie Mae Mortgage

"First story this week comes from the wall street journal and pretty soon rent payments are going to play a factor in mortgage underwriting us right. Yeah this is the help for home buyers story that we mentioned exactly and it's kind of absurd really that this is not the case. I feel like the fact that you pay your credit card bill a little late and he just like has a massive impact negative impact on your credit score. But that your biggest bill. Every month wasn't an influence on your credit. Right that's just silly and So yeah fannie. Mae is trying to change. That actually announced that this change it's scheduled to take place on september eighteenth and the best part. Is that this. Change can only help. It cannot hurt your chances to qualify a mortgage and if you have been making irregular payments will fannie may not going to include that history. But i think this is good news for renters because it's going to factor into the underwriting forgetting that mortgage it's gonna be really helpful as a sign that you are good with money. It's going to be a helpful factor getting approved for a mortgage when your lender can see that h- that history of on time payments absolutely. Yeah this is great news for especially to first-time homebuyers who have been consistent. Renters consistent payers of their rent You know say over the past couple of years that kind of

Out of. A person's bank account is the rent payments that the loan applicant has been making so the point here is to basically find a fairly easy. The goal at least is to find a fairly easy way where this crucial data point that would tell wonders whether or not loan applicants have been paying their rent on a monthly basis essentially.

What is a Comparable Sale?

"Now i raise the issue of asking what a comparable sale is simply because there is no clear or practical definition of what a comparable sale is in the appraisal literature. If you go to mark rat. Herman's book he says comparable sales should have the same ori very similar highest and best use as the subject. The fifteenth addition of the appraisal of real estate says essentially the same thing now. These are a tatum sources. But let's face it. They're not highly read nor are they highly consulted when it comes to residential real estate. Interestingly enough us pap itself they use pap. Document does not have a definition of a comparable sale in fact standard rule. One dash four which is as close as us pep gets the sales comparison approach merely tells the appraiser to quote analyzed such comparable sales data as are available again. This is an authoritative source but very few people read us. Pap quite frankly. A fannie mae doesn't have any definition of what a comparable sale is. Either it merely describes what it considers to be the characteristics of a comparable sale for example it says a comparable sale has to have the same or highly similar characteristics as the subject now this refers to the subject site in other words it size frontage depth view exposure location proximity to employment centers downtown recreation facilities etc it refers as well to similarity of room counts that just avoids a lot of unnecessary adjustments similarity of gla for the same thing trying to avoid adjustments similarity of style in other words.

Biden to Replace Housing Finance Chief After U.S. Supreme Court Ruling

"In both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac today? We're seeing a bit of a sell off. Earlier the Supreme Court throughout the core part of a multi billion dollar lawsuit. It was brought by investors in both Fannie and Freddie and they were challenging the government's collection of more than $100 billion in profits for both. The court rejected the claim that the government's exceeded its authority in distributing this cash now. Interestingly, at the same time, the court gave the president more power and choosing the director of the agency that oversees Fannie and Freddie. And now we are being told President Biden is going to immediately moved to replace the director of the agency. It's the Federal Housing Finance Agency. The director now is Mark Calabria. He is an appointee of President Trump, and he has been an advocate for releasing Fannie and Freddie from government control. So some of that may be reflected in the price section that we're seeing right now. Fannie Mae

Renters Rights And the Mortgage Forebearance extension

"So we have had unprecedented moves over the last year to protect renters and borrowers from facing eviction for renters and foreclosure innovation for borrowers in mortgages and the clock had reached midnight on those programs and there are changes for both borrowers and renner's and there's been so much confusion about this. I want to talk about renters. So as a runner. You don't have automatic protection. You have rights that can prevent innovation but only if you exercise those rights. The rights only extend to people who can demonstrate the have suffered financial harm because of corona virus and. We really have been split as a country. They're tens of millions of people who've suffered extreme hardship with job and the rest and then san tens of millions others of others who actually are in better financial shape almost a year out from the onset of corona virus in the united states than they were before so it is a really story for renters. You have a form you have to fill out that we have a link to it. Clark dot com where you verify the economic hardship you've had you must go to your court dates if your landlord goes after you anyway and the courts are usually doing things by zoom or some other online means. But if you don't appear your landlord even in the midst of eviction moratorium will still be granted relief by the court and you will in fact be evicted. So it's up to you to do the paperwork. Proactively send the paperwork to your land or the landlord pretends to ignore it and files for dispossessed. Ry eviction on you. You must go through the process of protecting yourself in court and also make sure that you keep notes when you notified your landlord the form you provided them. You also provide to the court to assert your rights. The meek do not remain in their apartments. You must stand up for yourself. In the case of homeowners there are more protections because with renner's once the moratorium lifts which is likely this spring that will with at that point. You in theory. You're supposed to pay all your back rent now. That's not realistic right. If you've been unemployed or underemployed for a year but the landlords will be free at that point to move forward with an eviction before moratoriums lift in your financial situation does start to stabilize. I said when not if you want to approach her landlord and see if you can work out a payment plan with them to start working on the back rent otherwise all the eviction moratorium did was buy you time but you still facing ultimate eviction for people that are mortgage borrowers now. That process has split. People who have fha mortgages now have a better blanket of protections then people who have loans that are underwritten behind the curtain by fannie mae or freddie mac. Most people's loans are in fact underwritten by fannie mae or freddie mac the Foreclosure moratorium has been extended ninety more days. Four people with fannie. Mae freddie mac if you are in some kind of forbearance you get ninety days added to that if you need it beyond what was originally a maximum twelve months in the case of fha borrowers you now have protection till early summer till june thirty in order to then work out a new payment arrangement the fha because it is a direct federal agency loan the fha will have fairly standardized procedures. Matt point on what your workout will be how you will eventually make good on the money that you did not pay over the last year in the case of fannie mae and freddie mac there will be a number of different ways that lenders deal with you. They have some Latitude in how they work out. Payment plans with you. The likeliest course that will work for most people is the miss months or full year or so of mortgage payments will be added onto the back of your loan as an additional Months or year or a little more year loan that is for many people going to be the best arrangement but again you cannot be passive. You must be active here and you just don't stop paying and when the moratoriums over you just don't say okay. Everything's gonna be great. You're the one who's got to be active with your lender on coming up with a workout arrangement. What they do in commercial real estate all the time with commercial mortgages are workouts and you will be doing Work out of your mortgage where it works for you and the lender.

"fannie mae" Discussed on SuperTalk WTN 99.7

"Um, and you know, speaking of refinancing your house, That's something that's still a lot of people are doing breaks. They're still great, and a lot of people are still taking advantage of that. But in the last month or two, it has become A little bit more expensive because of ah, fee that the Federal Housing Finance Administration has imposed on all refinances. Of conventional refinances across the board in the country. So all mortgage companies so you know this applies to everybody. Yeah, I will tell you two that we fought this thing tooth and there. Oh, yeah. And still fighting it still fighting it, But we lost that battle. You know, it's it's unfortunately apart of reality right now. Yeah, it's 00.5 so 50 basis points I believe is what it is, Yes. Added to every loan and they call it an adverse market fee. Yes. And for people who don't know, like 50 basis points. We're not talking about like half a percent of your rate. Yeah, You know, it's not like you were going to get 3%. Now you're going to get 3.5. It's actually based on individual pricing for each individual rates. So you know if the rate was 3% yesterday and well, not exactly yesterday, but before this fee if it was 3% now, with a feat you would have to pay half a point to get 3%. Right. So so definitely just got a little bit more expensive than they did delay it for a little while because it was supposed to start in August. Yes, it was a start early, and then they push it back. I think I liked it. December 1st. Yeah, but The thing that I think a lot of people don't realise who maybe have been reading about it and aren't up on it or been following it is they think that the fees not being charged until December 1st. But that's not the case. That date is based on the date that the lone eventually gets delivered to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, because you know most mortgage companies. Selve alone the loans that they do on the secondary market. And in that way they recoup their money and are able to do more loans. Otherwise, you know, eventually you run out of money. You'd be out of business, right s Oh, it's that whole process takes about 30 45 days from the time that alone is finished. To the time it ends up with Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. So based on that December for any loans that are being done right now will be delivered to them way past December 1st. So, in other words, that fee is being charged now. Yeah, Yeah, unfortunately, I mean, That is, you know, that was one of the things when they first brought this out. There was a lot of confusion over that. Yeah, you know, for you use the term adverse market fee, which is what they call it, I think is a good description. The whole reason that this is being charged is due to the Corona virus. Awesome. Of course. Everything is about Cove it Yeah. Yeah, but the reason I mean, really the reasoning behind it, which we've talked about in the in the show in the past. A lot of a lot of rates are dictated based on risk or perceived risk. Right. And so with Cove it you know and having to do the economy shut down and all that kind of stuff. It presented a lot of unknown risk factors. We've never really been in this situation where All of a sudden the economy was just shut down, right? You don't know if the borrower that you're giving alone to is gonna have a job next month, right? Because there's so many variables. Yeah, and so our hope in one of the things, of course, that we're fighting against is Teo make this a temporary thing. You know, we would like to see this feed. Go away. Absolutely yesterday. Yeah, we would like to have never started it. Exactly exactly. And And one of the interesting things to that, you know, is kind of some market data for people who are interested. The amount of like foreclosures and defaulted payments that we were expecting was actually a lot less. I'm sorry. What we are seeing is a lot less than what was expected, right? They were expecting full blown like major defaults on mortgages and everything, and that didn't really materialize, right? Which is good, right? Absolutely. So, as we see more people come out of, you know the payment of Fermin program and things get worked out with that are our hope is that eventually this is going to go away. But for right now it's here and We're still fighting it. But for right now it's a thing we got to deal with. Now. It's not really applying to government loans like F H A. J ust a VA loans, right, right. Those ones there are except it's really just applying to Standard conventional Fannie Mae. Freddie Mac loves right, although other loans do have their own fees that they charge, you know, fate has what a 1.75% feed that they charged. Just for the privilege of doing an FAA J loan, right? Exactly Hit neck. It's that gets sent ah, directly to of F A. J. So it's not something your mortgage company gets to keep. Yeah. And USDA loans, which we do a fair amount of those around here. That's that's a lot less. That's only a 1% fee, and then they charge an annual 10.35% fee. For the privilege again of doing a USDA loan. So you know you're going to be paying these government fees, no matter what, you know, So right, right? Absolutely. And that's and that's you. So 0.35, then divided by 12. So that's what ends up in your monthly payment every month, so it's actually relatively small. But it adds up. Yes. So the best The best way to look at this adverse market is kind of like what? You were just saying with these different loan types, you know they're all of this is really about managing risk. Like Home ownership is something that we're firm believers in America. You show everybody wants to own a home. It's a great investment. Yeah, if you're lucky, I guess it's not always a great investment. But for the majority of people, it has turned out positively. And there's different things that we have to do as an industry to make sure that the industry doesn't implode again, you know, because we ran through that issue in Oh, wait. 09 where people were getting loans when they shouldn't have And the pendulum has swung the other direction and part of the way that they deal with protecting against any sort of, you know, Huge issue like this is through these adverse market fees is through mortgage insurance premiums..

"CLL Kimberly's responsible for overseeing the company's technology operations Innovation, data off and strategic execution functions over the past Dozen Years.

We also talked about how the concept of anti-racism is gaining traction as well as some of the group's Kimberly admires that are paying attention this issue. We also discuss how the covid-19 pandemic is brought out more empathy and people the importance of diversifying your slate of mentors and mentees in a variety of other topics before we get to our interview. I wanted to introduce you to our sponsor Zoho and the company's president Timothy Cosby prior to taking on his current role.

Thanks Timothy. And now on to the interview. I thought we begin with just your own kind of General Reflections on the on the black lives matter movement more generally the current social unrest following the death of George Floyd and other Institute instigating factors. Maybe you should take a moment and just reflect if you would well I have to say it has really been a quite a remarkable spring and summer like we're just at a a fascinating time where so many things are are coming together dead. We are experiencing a a social justice movement that the same time that we're really trying to whether a global pandemic that's having very disparate outcome on our communities of color and I think that's been a real eye-opener demonstrates how socioeconomic status can impact access to education employment housing Health Care people are just beginning to realize these things are both connected and related and and the system reinforces the status quo. So I think that's having a lot to the sort of social consciousness of of the country club that one things that that is remarkable to me. Is that why you feel so different like we've seen these types of incidents that that was tragic, but it's certainly not the first time that you've seen a break consisted the victims of police brutality, but a lot of us are you know home I've been on lockdown for months of people are watching the news. They're more in tune to themselves their families. Your values they're thinking about sort of you know, the meaning of life and Community all these things. I think are are waiting on people in a different way right now. So I'd say that having a long time to reflect his brought her to look at more empathetic people and I'm I'm really grateful and and this hopeful that we have a real opportunity to embrace a change that that could be sustained and and we can hope we see some lasting evolution in the way that we treat each other. I really liked that. I've not heard anyone put it that way having had this conversation with a number of of friends and colleagues. I am I that's a really poignant point you make about the difference now and the fact that perhaps there's a if there is a silver lining it is that the fact that we're all with our families and have an opportunity to reflect further along with those who we love most perhaps it gives us A Renewed emphasis those of Goodwill perhaps to rethink things and and and improve things wherever they can. I think so. I think people are spending a lot of time thinking about the trade-offs we make is the society and what's important to them and for their values lie and what kind of a world we want to live in and how we want to leave this to our kids and took a lot of things to ponder Kimberly. I you know, somebody like yourself is no doubt and inspiration to others as you've blazed a path that perhaps them are men and women of color might follow to to rise to the role in your case of Chief Operating Officer of Fannie Mae major executive at a major corporation. And and thankfully there there's there are a growing number of people who have who have been able to to to those pads, but I'm curious as you were starting in your professional who are some of the people who were important to you who were some of your personal and professional mentors and I'm curious, you know, how you kind of describe your own thought process went dead. To empowering people of color from that perspective. Yeah. Well, I have to tell you I am very fortunate. I have had a gland number mentors and sponsors and people who have helped me navigate my career. I mean so many I couldn't even begin to name them but I can't tell you that mentoring is really really important. It's important to me as both a recipient and a provider of I find that I get the most value out of having, you know, a few trust folks that I can talk to but it's really the breadth of your network that matters having people that connect with us personally and professionally is essential and people who are tuned to your own position and experiences so that they can cater their advice and their counsel to you. But I am having people who are you know, men who are women who are younger who are older who are in my field and who are completely outside. It helps me broaden my own perspective and it helps me relate dead. It seems that I might not be seeing through the same lenses. And so I find that that is the most helpful thing is to make sure that you really do diversify your sleigh Dementors and when it comes to mentoring, I'm a huge believer in making sure that you you Mentor everyone equally I get lots to your point. I have lots of women and minorities who come and ask me for advice and I try to say yes much as I possibly can but I also make sure that I I met lots of men and I meant or lots of people of all Races or nationalities because if if it's white people can't see black people as leaders and go to them for advice and and be excited to get their perspective then we're missing out on a huge opportunity. So I think that it's important for minority leaders to to Mentor everybody not just other minorities. That's a great Point. How would you or have you counseled collie dog? Listen and others on your team as to the role they can play and improving opportunities for four people of color employees current and.

FHFA delays refinance fee start date to Dec. 1

"I had told you. Guess about a week ago. About a new rip-off fee. The was coming to mortgage refi is. Going to cost people refiling during the month of September and beyond. Typically about fifteen hundred dollars in additional junk fees mandatory on. Traditional mortgages that you would do. Those are the ones you do conventional with Fannie Mae Freddie Mac. Which is where most loans end up? And this fee. Had Been Dreamt up on the fly. By the by the feds as a way of covering the possible increase in foreclosures the we may see over the next couple of years because of the economic arm, the country is suffered in. So many of us who suffered from corona virus. So, there was an absolute uproar. By the mortgage lending industry and the real estate industry and their push back was so strong that the federal government is backed down. And delayed this junk fee till. No earlier than December. So people in the process of refining right now, you may have already been told you're going to have to pay. This junk fee that could be it could be substantially more than fifteen hundred, but typically, it would be fifteen hundred more or less. That that is now canceled. Or postponed. So people in the mortgage refi pipeline will be able to get refried without having to worry about it. and. Then another change is that if you're buying an amount less than one, twenty, five, hundred and twenty, five, thousand, you are exempt from the junk fee. So we'll see what happens in December but for now. Don't worry about it.

Economic Fallout From COVID-19 Is Hard On Landlords Too

"Explored the uncertainty from a lot of different perspectives and nothing can feel more destabilizing. The Not knowing if you're going to be able to make your rent next month we've heard on this show about how much renters who've lost income from the current crisis are struggling today. We're going to hear from the other side of that relationship. The landlord my name is Marilyn. Jim I am a small mom and pop landlord in Seattle with my husband We live in a triplex with our children and our tenants. Our House was built as a single family home in nineteen twelve by an Irish immigrant. Who had eighteen children and so? It's a good sized home sometime. In the past it was divided into a triplex. They both have day jobs but they rely on the rental income they get from several properties around the city. You know my husband will be the guy who's pushing the lawnmower so our tenants know us get to know us very well. They see us. They know that our family lives here. And and You know it's it's very much a personal up close up front relationship but that relationship has taken on a new sense of gravity since the financial crisis triggered by the pandemic all. Her tenants paid late in April and then in. May One of her tenants couldn't come up with the money at all. We came to the table with some ideas of what we could do to help. Meet them in the middle and we've come up with a plan that will take us through the next two months and then we're going to check in again in June and reassess but you know my husband and I have also had the conversation of ultimately. How long is this going to last? How long can we last? They're worried because they don't have a lot of extra money on reserve to float their mortgages if their tenants can't pay. We're not hoarding money here. And so we don't have a large cushion to tap into to get through something like this or mortgage lender is only allowing three months of forbearance and they want full repayment. At the end of free months it's hard for us to think. How are we going to get through if Are Tenants get to the point? Where there are no longer able to pay. Npr correspondent. Chris. Arnold has been looking into the dilemma that Maryland yet and many small landlords find themselves in right now and he joins us. Hey Chris Rachel so what stood out to you in Maryland Story. Will I think a lot of people are in the situation? And th there's all kinds of landlords out there and I think people tend to think about landlords is like big mean faceless corporations or you know as people rubbing their hands together wanting the money but there's just a lot of mom and POPs who were regular people and they wanna keep good tenants and they want to help them but they do depend upon this rental income right because they're not be corporations. They got bills to pay to like their mortgage and Congress mandated help for homeowners and that includes small landlords like Maryland. Were in exactly the situation and so when you play the interview for me. The the big red blinking alarm light that I heard in it was. She said that her lender told her that if she skipped payments she have to pay them all back in just a few months in this giant lump sum doesn't make any sense in this crisis in this kind of big balloon. Payment thing is is absolutely not the way that this is supposed to work. Okay so how is it supposed to work but good question So we should say that this is four home loans that our government back so by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac and a lot of people don't even realize that their home mortgages backed by the government and somebody but seventy five percent of all homeless in the country are and so as Maryland's I checked and experts at. I've talked to say that for the vast majority of people who were struggling financially in this outbreak for them the rules say that they should make payments again when they're able to and it should be the same monthly payment their payments should not go up no big crazy. Lump sum payments should just get moved to the back and of the loan term. Okay so if it's a thirty year loan now. It's a thirty year loan plus say six months of missed payments on the back end. If these are the rules Chris Wise Maryland hearing something different and can Marilyn just push back yes she absolutely can and I've talked to borrowers who have done that. And sometimes they get a much better answer. And here's what's been going on. And after a lot of initial confusion. The Mortgage Bankers Association says that the companies are dealing with this much. Better this better information out there but the current system has a complicated set of rules and it relies on on lenders. Who've got like call center workers working from home they have to interpret this complicated set of rules properly and borrowers are sort of at the mercy of their lenders getting this right and arguably. It's not really going that well for a lot of people look at what. Maryland's going getting all SPAN INFORMATION. So that's why there are growing calls from Congress to fix this. I talked to Steve. Sharp with the nonprofit National Consumer Law Center. It's so important. We believe for Congress to step in and clearly state through law that for folks who have covid nineteen forbearance the real default should be putting their mortgage payments at the end of the lowe. Okay so just make that. The default make it automatic. So there's confusion the payments. Just go on the back end right and and some members of Congress do WANNA do this. There's a bipartisan group of State Attorneys General who were pushing for this to the CEO of a mortgage company. I talked to likes the idea and I actually called up and talked to Maryland and her husband again and I. Currently they're using their tenants security deposit and the last month's rent to sort of make up some of the difference of the rent that they're not able to pay but that's not going to be able to go on for too much longer and Maryland said look at mean having the certainty of this default option would make them much more comfortable skipping mortgage payments so that they could afford to be more flexible with with their tenants. Yeah because then. We wouldn't even need to be talking about drawing down from the money that they already put on deposit with us you know we could leave that untouched We would definitely have a whole lot more flexibility to to really see you know if if they are drawing from their savings. Maybe they don't need to do

Here’s what you need to know about paying your rent or mortgage

"So we talked a lot about the P. P. P. over the last couple of days the payroll protection program trump suggesting yesterday that he once said two hundred fifty two or fifty billion dollars to that the loan forgiveness program for small businesses what about individuals who are wondering about how they're going to pay their mortgage as they're waiting for the disaster relief checks or for unemployment insurance benefits to kick in for a discussion about the mortgage business we're pleased to be joined by our friend David hopper vice president lending of team Hochberg and home side financial David thanks for joining us appreciate it thank you ram appreciate the opportunity so thinking about people in financial distress or certainly concerned about being in financial distress in the not too distant future depending on how things transpire what are some of the questions you're getting in the recommendations you're making to people yeah well again thanks a lot for the opportunity your listeners are gonna fall into fort Meade a mostly four categories one there you're gonna have a party mac clone they're either going to have Fannie Mae Freddie Mac and will throw three categories trying to be pretty back FHA or VA okay Fannie Mae Freddie Mac allow your listeners and the easiest way to find out guys is to just call the eight hundred number on your mortgage statement and call them up and ask them if you have a female Freddie Mac FHA loan if you have a VA loan you you most likely would not be a long serving in our military or our a surviving spouse what what cleaning may forty mac have have issued rules that their servicers can allow up to twelve months of forbearance here's the biggest challenge though a forbearance is when a borrower can differ mortgage payments without any late fees or down any hits on the credit the challenges it's up to the servicer the person that has your mortgage that you're writing your mortgage thank you to make that determination what they've said is spinning the forty mac and come out and said is if you call them and state that you're having economic hardship economic challenges due to corporate nineteen coronavirus they will put you into a forbearance without any issues here's a challenge with Randy for Fannie Freddie rules state that if they put you to a three month of forbearance for example if you call today you could defer your April may and June payment but come July what your listeners to allow listeners don't realize come July first when the to my mortgage payment is due they want the ninety days of deferred payments as well so that's a major challenge and I called up my servicer who is chasing set what happens if listeners borrowers can't make that hundred twenty days worth of payments obviously they're going to permit into forbearance because we've got challenges he's like well they have to call back again they're not gonna make it easy for you you have to call back and either ask for another forbearance for loan modification at that time but see anybody Freddie Mac rules clearly state in a recent letter that they sent out to all other other servicers that farmers can get up to twelve months worth of errands now on the FHA rules FAQ role is completely different and this is important for your listeners to understand if you have an FHA rule FHA wrote FHA will allow six to twelve months worth of forbearance so they'll give you six blocks at a time but again you have to call your servicer who is the company that you write your checks to and request forbearance now the difference between winning may Freddie Mac and FHA the FHA has stated after the twelve months worth of forbearance they will allow you to allow farmers to add a second loan with zero percent interest on the backs all the missed payment you made for the six or twelve months there will be a subordinate loan added at zero percent interest that no penalty to the borrower that will be paid off when you either refinance or sell your home the T. and there hasn't been any rules released yet for VA loans Ross I would I I would you'd you know share that with you listen it's a constantly moving thing right now and we're trying to stay ahead of it the best we can why are they offering forbearance for six to twelve months is that an indication about how long they think this may last sort of a hedge what will it be pretty macros of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is already have forty wrote written rules for their servicers to offer up to twelve months which means you know what they know okay that is it's going to be this is war I'm not trying to freak your listeners out but I I survived nine eleven I survived oh wait and I'm telling you right now eight we had what may be seven to eight hundred thousand people unemployed which was a huge hit to the economy you're you're talking twelve fifteen twenty times that number so what Fannie Mae Freddie Mac FHA are doing is trying to get ahead of it so you don't have bar were standing around the corner at the gymnasium is trying to do loan modifications like they did in a weight which is a complete

need more places for people to be able to call home so there is someone of a shortage of housing and that's always a challenge which is yeah people stay put longer they tend to look at you know is younger generation of millennials which has been a challenge for young folks trying to buy their first home now why is that college debt has settled people left and right affordable housing which to me is the first and foremost thing that we in this country have to address that doesn't mean just lower prices or having housing that hits a certain type of economic range is being able to have enough inventory to be able to accommodate the needs of families weather's young folks retirees that middle part of the demographics that there's opportunities to obtain housing without there being a burial Ferrier financially of Berrier in not knowing if there's going to be enough homes to be able to compare that applies to rental that applies to commercial yeah so giving people lots of choices at affordable pricing ranges is a up most requirement there are challenges as you said affordability the lack of homes for sale there just aren't enough houses for all the buyers out there but at least interest rates are low their historic lows you know when we were growing up our parents or grandparents have rates that we said we will never see it yet and boy how lucky they were and when I bought my first home back in the early eighties I had sixteen percent interest rate and three and a half points which is just incredible and they kept dropping it dropping and dropping you know you find rates well under you know five four to half percent for condos for single family homes for refinancing incredible opportunities so that has generated lots of interesting opportunity but you've got to have the places on the homes in the dwellings to make that happen so I know that in the big economic summit the biggest push of all is the one for solutions how do we solve the problem the Ford ability how do we solve the problem of inventory and how we solve the problem in homeownership gaps in some parts of society that can't afford a home what do you do about that well I think it all comes down to one basic tenet you know what to realtors stand for what does the national association of realtors and our members what's the most important thing we need to focus on and that is fair house because if you make sure that everything is fair and open to everyone which is what we a spouse that's part of our code of ethics we just celebrated a year plus you know the fiftieth anniversary of fair housing we have been a stalwart working within our industry and outside industry groups and multi cultural groups about the importance of what for housing rent so you got to have that as your baseline starting point we talked about affordable housing how do you have enough housing and different some people don't want to buy a home some people want to read because I want to be mobile you've got to be able to accommodate all situations and all places and I think the way you do that is continually put our consumers first in everything that we do that's why we're here we're here as an

"Of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are up more than sixty percent in the past month on hopes the mortgage companies will exit government conservatorship Bloomberg's Vonnie Quinn spoke with a key voice in the process mark Calabria director of the federal housing finance agency so what we're working on more than a month as you mentioned a letter agreement you may remember the current later agreement caps their capital at three billion in the really new part is a much higher number than three billion so it will still be limited but we're looking to come up with a number that will get us through the next year and a half two years in the in the interim after that we will reach agreement on changes to the underlying share agreement that allow us to chart a path through Fannie Freddie out of conservatorship. processor than an old calendar driven but for example do you anticipate that within a year honey and Freddy will be out of government control. it really depends on how quickly they raise capital so what we want to be able to do is actually to some extent put their destiny back in their hands they're going to be responsible for building capital they're going to be responsible for hating goal posts so what really what we're gonna be doing particularly in the amendments to the share agreement is setting up a bunch of mile markers for feeding frenzy to hit but the the day they're the ones I've got a drive down the road. how much. will this letter agreement authorizes the GSEs to retain director. probably about an offer that will get him through a year and a half two years but this is really the point in negotiations right now the secretary and I have not settled on the final number but we're in the neighborhood were close and and I'm very hopeful that that will get done by the end of the month use talked about reducing Fannie and Freddie's footprint are there areas other products that you wouldn't want them to be an jumbo loans for example or you know other types of loans. this is really going to be focused on D. risking in so again if they're going to go to market how do you look at products that they don't have a higher return keeping in mind again that Fannie Mae for instances leverage a thousand one so it's a safety and soundness regulator I really need to be able to make sure that the risk that they're taking is commensurate with the capital that they hold that's currently not the case so I think some very modest reductions in risk the major footprint will look the same it will just looks a little bit safer and I think it's appropriate particularly given where we are in the house in cycle and given my leverage these entities have. senator brown about you know how you expect investors to get involved with these companies if every extra step you take actually reduces their profitability what what do you say to that director. well first of all whatever size it was a financial arms like regulator the the the the responsibility to raise capital to convince investors his on the company's not me I think I can help make this a safe and sound system were feed somebody does invest in these companies you can be sure that they don't fail again because I think with the current situation is their leverage they have today no fail during the next crisis so how do we build them up in a way that I think of a sustainable I think a number of the higher risk products that they do don't have really good returns on equity in the house so we can reduce some of that risk and of course it's worth keeping in mind that the smaller they aren't the west capital after is to get out. respond to some criticism that this is old is going to be money in the pockets of some hedge funds who owns Fannie Freddie. well it's not necessarily a concern of mine iron I'm tasked with getting them to a safe inside condition that's my responsible on that's my focus if shareholders benefit our show is a benefit that's incidental to me building up the capital again I'll remind you Fannie Mae is leverage a thousand one I have to help them build capital or they would not system sustain the next downturn how long before the funny and Freddie raises outside capital and how do you anticipate that I'm going what will be the rows for the house and I PO. so it could be even though the first thing I think we need to do is start to retain capital and I think we'll have to have a number of months to retain earnings so six months to a year retainer ensure that track record in the boat that question before they can go to market so again emphasizing process driven not calendar driven I think the earliest you could see going to market would be the last fourth quarter twenty twenty twenty twenty one is more likely the case but I really do want to emphasize a lot of things need to be done before you get to that point the government in your preferred shares how they being repaid are these potentially one of the bargaining chips you're using it's certainly one of the one of the one of the parameters you know my view is fundamentally that the government's investment is being managed by treasury and while I'm not offer my thoughts of the secretary it's fundamentally his decision to make up my my focus is on getting Fannie Freddie in a safe and sound condition you know you talk about competition but a new competitor would have three tens of billions of dollars of capital and be on the national stage and you know I have a rate of return that would get investor is to be attracted to is do you anticipate that happening how long would it be before something like that would happen in the country so it I really whatever size for me to be able to issue new charters resolve call for is going to require an act of Congress so well we all know that doesn't happen quickly I think the important Kathy on here is you've got a bit of a chicken and egg if I don't have the usual ability to issue new charters are bring a competitor student no one's gonna try to compete so I would at least like the opportunity to be able to issue charters bring some competition into this you know and more importantly reduce the reliance on feeding and Freddie if we have five or six of these entities then no one of them is necessarily too big to fail so to me the competition aspect is as much about trying to bring financial stability of the system to the

"All my monthly investor letters and looked at my portfolio where I'd made lost money and I realized that I had owned owned some of the greatest stocks of all time I own apple back when it had a three billion dollar market right I owned net flicks in two thousand eleven eleven and twelve at a three billion dollar market cap. That's been about a fifty bagger apple spent three hundred bagger. I owned Ross stores at a buck seventy. That's been a seventy seventy bagger the only one that I really identified equality business and just hung with it was Berkshire hathaway which owns from day one two year eighteen when I closed my fund. I owned it consistently but the rest you know I bought them. I owned McDonald's back when it got really cheap in two thousand and two early two thousand three. Are you got down to twelve dollars a share. What's it at two hundred today. I own home depot. You name it yet. I had sort of own them at the right time. When great companies had encountered what turned out to be temporary difficulties. Their stocks got cheap. I bought them that part. I did quite well. The problem is the stocks then went up fifty percent and they didn't appear as cheap anymore. I saw them and it was. I realized realized my probably my single biggest mistake. Over twenty years is is that I probably paid. There's always there are two main things you're looking at right which is price or valuation and business quality and I was smart enough to understand they were both important but when I look back and I look back at my decision decision making and where I was screening for stocks I was probably seventy five percent focus on statistically cheap stocks low oh price to earnings price to book cash flow whatever traditional valuation multiples and I was only twenty five percent focus on business quality so when I went out to look for businesses I would screen for statistical cheapness and then I'd come up with. Let's say one hundred companies and then I would look for the better businesses among them. What I should have done is the exact opposite. which is I should have said? Let me go out and find the hundred greatest businesses the grace the planet earth and that have the biggest moats that have the brightest futures that have the most long term potential and then. Let's look there for an for the ones that are being temporarily miss price when I can get in at a good price but then once I'm lucky enough to get into good price. I'm going to ride him until until the story changes you know stories sometimes change valiant was a twenty bagger before the story changed and it went down by ninety seven percent so I'm not selling. I'm not saying my mistake was you never should've sold anything. If you make a mistake the story changes or if the valuation Russian truly gets extreme you need to get out of a position or at least trim it obviously part of a critical part of portfolio management is position sizing and managing a high class problem which is you put on a five percent position in a stock and then it doubles and doubles again in doubles again. It's a high class problem but figuring out you know win. Let your winners run how much and win it. CETERA is a is a key part of that so that was a that was a big mistake. so I'm now I still consider myself a value investor but I sort of say I'm not a value investor or a growth invest make money investor. I'm much more or open today to paying up a for a stock that that may not look sheep on a current year's earnings multiple or something like that but where you know I can think okay five years from now. What is where do I think this company is likely to be and what can it be earning meal five years from now whereas historically I was only willing to you know look at sort of current year earnings or maybe what they were earning next year. I wasn't willing to look at out any further than that. So I missed a lot of the great moon shots and other stock by the way back in one thousand nine hundred nine was Amazon Sakes. Thanks right. We should talk about that because I thought I think that it was Doug Casts I saw on your site who talking about Amazon the first thing that came to mind when you were telling that story was the European banking sector because we've been talking about European back. Actually I spoke to an investor last week or the the week before last and he said in his fun he has no European Bank stocks yet when you look at them on price to book Valuation Deutchebanks Bank for instance. It's trading at twenty percent of book thirty percent of book. Yeah I mean that's a cheap star when you look at from the paradigm that you're talking about now. How do you look look at the banking sector as an example financing gentlemen well generally banks particularly investment banks which big derivative books because I think thank you have to differentiate between you know just your standard retail banking franchises versus investment banks like Deutsche Bank generally speaking speaking they make me nervous insurance companies. I'd throw in there as well in that. There's just there's Black Swan risk out there because there's leverage and because they have big a big either derivative books or loan books where it's very difficult often. There's sort of black boxes. You know what's in there so you just have to have a lot of confidence in management generally which is why you know. Berkshire hathaway certainly something I felt comfortable owning just because I've steadied Buffett and Munger longer so closely and understand their fundamental conservatism but there aren't very many other financials I mean the financial sector the history of financials just is littered with boom and boss and management teams that are out there trying to deliver steady earnings growth in a sector that often doesn't lend itself to that general view of the European financial sector as after the great financial crisis no eight. Oh nine the US did a very good job of forcing the entire financial sector clean up to realize their losses to run off their bad banks and cleanup underwriting standards etc but mostly to take their medicine and recap and recapitalize etc and that didn't really happen in Europe. You know I host an invest in conference in Italy every summer and so I'm talking to my Italian value investor friends over there and you know the bunkum wanted. The oldest bank in the world dozen years later is still on death's door and has had to do multiple rounds of of capital raising because they sort of had a bad loan book but didn't or couldn't take their medicine so oh. I'm you know they're. They're a lot of things I'd say. The vast majority of what I look at generally just goes into the too hard bucket doors have been interesting because because a an and by comparison I think that when we were talking I thought it was interesting you know when you do the twenty five seventy five twenty five percent cheap deep seventy-five percent good business it brings us immediately to the GPS's yeah so when you talk about financials the juxtaposition in between the black box of the investment bank versus what I would consider a dominant position of GS's is very interesting and that's. That's a very interesting political story that you have a lot of knowledge about. Tell me a little bit about what's going on there yeah well. It's interesting since I started my investment newsletter later in April of this year I'd say at least half of them half dozen or so recommendations. We've made so far we put out one. I have have a free daily. Letter goes out to thirty five thousand people or so every day but we once a month we put together a ten to fifteen page report on our single best investment in that goes to our paid subscribers so once a month since March. We've had a half dozen ideas. The majority of them have been ideas is from back in my hedge fund as companies that I've known for a long time and one of the more interesting speculations that was in my hedge fund was Fannie and Freddie government-sponsored services the mortgage giants the Jesse's which in many ways were what happened to them is exactly what happened with. Aig for example uh-huh it was deemed they were correctly both AIG and the Essy's were deemed systemically important the US government came in gave them an unlimited line of credit to to make sure they could get through the crisis all took eighty percent of their stocks and that's what happened in no way within a couple of weeks of each other to both gs's aig what what happened differently with the GPS's though is well. Let me what happened with AIG. Let's start there tell you what happened differently at the in in the case of Aig the company recovered as the economy and financial system recovered AIG sold off assets returned earned a profitability they paid back the government loans with interest and then the government still owned eighty percent of the stock which the government over the course of a number of equity woody offerings exited the position. The government made a fortune edgy. AIG is now an independent privatized and very carefully regulated a major financial institution today. That's exactly what should have happened to the. GSEE's the problem is in two thousand twelve just as the GS's were about to return to massive profitability their.

Tell him it when he tilson. It's a pleasure to talk to you. We're GONNA talk a lot about value investing some of the ideas that you have what you're doing currently with empire financial research but within the first question that pops to me when I look at your resume is that your parents were teachers. How is it that you got so involved in investing yeah well. It didn't come naturally. That's for sure my parents their entire lives. I never owned a stock so it wasn't like investing or business was ever talked about around the dinner table. I grew up in developing countries. Tanzania Nicaragua must childhood my interest in business developed when I was an undergraduate at Harvard got involved with Harvard student agencies and and I remember probably my sophomore year as an Undergrad somehow through some friend went sat in on a Harvard business school class and I just loved the case study method and I still remember the the case and what the insights were and I knew right then that I want to go to Harvard business school and that was my mission from that point forward so I did. A bunch of entrepreneurial stuff ofo coming out of college was employee number two helping Wendy Kopp start teach for America then did a fairly traditional two year associate program at Boston Austin Consultant Group and was lucky enough knock on wood to get into Harvard business school the only school I applied to if I hadn't gotten in I would have waited and apply to some other schools later but got in off. I went but up until that point all the way through Harvard business. School had no interest in investing I used to I remember are we used to get the. I was very interested in business. When the Wall Street Journal came I'd read it except I take the c section the money and investing section I threw it in the trash. Never even read so you know my only exposure really to investing was through my college. Buddy Bill Ackman who was very interested in investing at a young age and and I still remember bumping into him on campus back on Black October nineteen eighty-seven and he was white as a ghost and I said bill what's the matter and he said did you see what happened in the stock market and I said No. He's like well. It just had its worst day since the great depression or something and you know my family just lost millions of dollars and that was thinking thinking I saw Gee. I wish I had millions of dollars but so Warren Buffett came to speak at Harvard Business School when I was there and I didn't even hear him right incredible opportunity because I didn't even know who he was so it wasn't until the mid nineties I graduated in Nineteen Ninety-four so call it ninety six. I'd say okay I got interested in investing for a very simple reason. I had ten thousand dollars in my bank account. it was the first time in my life. I ever had any savings. I had college debt. Then I had business school debt. I had gotten married back in ninety three. My wife was working as a lawyer. We're living in her grandparents apartment. So we had a low cost of living. Both of US had incomes uh-huh. I was working in the nonprofit sector at the time so I didn't have much of an income but between the two of us you know we finally had some savings paid off. Our debt had a little had ten thousand dollars since so I called up bill. I said well you know what should I do with it. I want to invest this money and keep in mind the nineteen ninety-six or so you're now fourteen years into this big bull market. Everybody's talking about stocks the Internet starting to you know the early germs of the Internet are sprouting so Bill Hill said all you gotta. Do I still remember exact words. He said all you have to do is read everything. Warren Buffett's ever written go back and read all his annual shareholders letters and you can stop there. You don't need to read anything else. That's when I discovered buffet read his shareholder letters and that led me to a couple of years later start going to the Berkshire meetings. I read Roger Lowenstein Book Buff at the making of American capitalist or the first major biography of him than that led me to the the intelligent investor to Peter Lynch's books. you know beating the street in one up on on the street seth. Carmen's original book Etcetera Cetera etc led me into the literature and I just got more and more into it and started buying a few stocks here and there and at the time you know I'm embarrassed that I was sort of speculating in penny stock right you know hot tip somebody had given me but fortunately at least fairly quickly started gravitating toward higher quality businesses and buffets influence and bill ackman's influence started to steer me into higher quality businesses and I did that for a couple of years started managing you know at this point. Maybe my wife and I had saved one hundred thousand dollars so I started. I put that money in an e trade account started buying the gap Dell Microsoft. AOL was my big score. went up six times in a year in the late nineties and I quickly came to believe that I was God's gift to investing because every stock I picked went up. I now look back. Ah can realize I really wasn't doing much. Fundamental research didn't have any particular insights. I was just sort of buying what's hot and it was a stock market. It not too dissimilar to what we've seen over the past ten years where you know you just sort of bought some popular blue chip stocks and they just went up every year and you look like a genius right so it was at that point bill was probably four or five years into his first hedge fund called. Gotham partners he he had grown up from three million inception to five hundred million dollars under management he was hot and I figured well. I'm a smart as Bill and if my friend can bill and I are very close friends but we're we're both super competitive so you know sort of in late. Nineteen Ninety Eight my nonprofit job after five years working with Michael Porter at Harvard Business School is something I had started coming out of. HP was winding down. I said you know what I do. A bill did a few years earlier and just hang out. My shingle is the world's smallest touch fund and so six weeks later it was mid. November one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. I made that rash decision. I've been telling every young person ever since don't try and do what I which is rush out and start a fund out of your bedroom with a million dollars under management with absolutely no experience either on the business side of running and building an investment management business or really on the investing side. I was sort of a late nineties bull market genius but that's how it came to be. I opened my doors as the world's smallest hedge fund on January first of nineteen ninety nine with a million dollars from my parents my in laws bill through a little bit of money as dad threw in a little bit of money plus my own on money that got me to about a million dollars when I started but you say that you didn't have a lot of acumen but you hit a lot of home runs. I mean subsequently over the next two decades. You did very well yes well. I split it sort of into two periods the first dozen years or so. I really did knock the cover off the ball. is a great time for investing and to some extent. I was smart and lucky and but but a lot of hustle led to the luck saying yeah the harder I work the luckier I get so as an example only a year after I started were now in early the spring of two thousand a year after I launched I was up to about four million dollars and I heard that investing legend Joe Greene Blatt who I'd read his book. You can be a stock market genius again one of those classic early value investing books. He was teaching a class up at Columbia business school so I found out when the first class was and in what classroom and I just showed up and I sort of looked like a student. I was only five years out of business school myself so I sat in the back of the classroom and he didn't notice me or anything thing and I learned for a couple hours. He was teaching that day and then I went up to him after class and I introduced myself and confess that I wasn't a student but that was a big fan of his. I'd read his book. I'm watching Little Hedge Fund. Would he mind if I sat in on the rest of the semester and he got a very uncomfortable look on and his face because he's against Columbia business school policy to let just random. We'll come sit in on their classes and he said I'm. I'm not supposed to do this but if you promise to keep quiet like you can't participate in any of the discussions like a regular student but if you just want sit there and keep quiet I'll look the other way and so I did and that was an incredible investing education because this was the absolute very peak of the Internet bubble was March tenth of two thousand and I was taking this class that week and he was preaching the Gospel of special situations and and it's it's hard for young people today who I didn't live through it to understand anything. That wasn't nifty. Fifty Internet related then was incredibly cheap. Good industrial businesses this trading at three or four times earnings. Berkshire hathaway had gotten had fallen from seventy thousand a share down to just over forty thousand dollars a share which was sort sort of cash and investment so you got a much younger Buffett and munger seventy-five operating businesses for free.

"These guys that aren't monsters like portland or related we have access to the same kind of debt but those guys do and fannie and freddie have both built really excellent small balance platforms to address loans from a million to seven seven million with fanny. You can generally go lower seven hundred and fifty thousand depending on the lender. It's really lender's discretion but i want to explain a couple of differences differences. Freddie mac has a great product. They're calling it opt to go now and the credit box is kind of narrow but if you have a loan that fits in their credit fox's multifamily on that fits in their credit box and you're in a large market think l. a. new york miami portland austin market like this you will get the most competitively priced non-recourse low cost leverage in debt that anybody can get. They both very special product. You can get up to ten years fixed on a thirty around the nation. I believe now they had terms up to twenty years where there's uncast active ten years but feeny may as a really special small balanced product also and that product is most powerful in either secondary and tertiary markets where you still want to achieve full leverage and get competitive the pricing because freddie mac is less competitive in smaller markets that are leveraged comes down the rates go up their credit really moves based on market market size first and then my ridge and that sort of this coverage ratios and so on and so forth any is really almost market agnostic unless they've had some bad experiences in a market with foreclosures in which case it can become pre review but something else that fannie mae has that you don't see that most folks don't know.

I need to buy insurance in case. I get into a car accident. I need to have health insurance in case. I get sick. I need to have a rainy day fund in case, the roof leaks or the car breaks down or some. Unexpected expense comes up say, maybe I lose my job or something bad happens. That's why I need savings. Well, that's true. Those are valid reasons to build rainy-day funds and cash reserves and savings, but those aren't the only reasons it's because good things happen as well. And you know, what good things can often cost just as much money as bad things. If your best friend from college announces that they're getting married guess what you're going to run a tux or buy dress. You're going to buy gifts for several hundred dollars.

"And because it's your second home. It's them t- most of the time, and yet you're paying for the costs of it all the time to help defray those expenses a lot of people who buy second homes would love the idea of renting it out this way, you can generate some income when you're not using it use the income to defray the cost of ownership. It's a very common tactic very common strategy. However, if you obtained a mortgage in order to buy that second home, and if you obtained that mortgage from Fannie Mae there was debate as to whether or not you were allowed to rent the home out Fannie Mae has now issued a new clarification to the situation and Fannie Mae is now clarifying that owners. Who have Fannie Mae loans? Can yes can rent out the second home the previous rule on this was issued back in two thousand one. It was interpreted as prohibiting rentals. Fannie Mae says no the rentals were never prohibited. But the language was ambiguous unclear and drove people crazy. The new language says the following you can rent out your second home after you've owned it for one year Fenway. In other words is saying they wanna make sure you can truly afford own this home on your own without any rental income, and if you can own the home for one year with no rental income, they will then allow you to rent the home out as you wish they also will allow you to do short term renting during that first year under certain conditions. So this is really good news. You should talk to your mortgage lender. If you own a second home to make sure you understand what kind of alone. It is you have who is the originator of that loan meaning was at Fannie Mae in the first place and evaluate your options. If you are planning to rent out, your second home talk with your financial advice. I there are implications. There are issues such as the fact that renters tend to trash properties. Right. I mean, when's the last time you washed a rental car? No what I'm saying. You wanna make sure that the property has proper insurance protection on it. You wanna make sure you were recognizing the amount of revenue you're going to receive on the property, and that it is worthwhile recognize that anytime you rent the property is a period of time. You can't use it. So there are implications. But if you are interested in renting out your second home, Fannie Mae just made it easier for a lot of folks, by the way, where is that? Second home is it in an urban area or a rural area. And in fact, let's broaden that not just your second home, but your primary home where do you live? Do you live in a city? Do you live in the suburbs? Do you live in the boonies? And who by the way is doing better with their personal finances. Those who live in urban areas or those who. Live in rural areas lending tree just released a study, and they looked at Americans living in both cities and in the country, and they looked at them with the average depth. They have their credit scores their mortgage balances their credit card debt their auto loan debt and their student loan debt. And you know, what they discovered in just about every category.

Roan is with us on the Clark Howard show. Hi, Rona Clark is run up. Yes. Sorry. Rhonda. That's okay. How often is your name? Ben mispronounced in your life, my whole life. See you shouldn't have said that you said Clark. That's the first time anybody's ever mispronounced. My name. Oh, it's so good to talk to you. Well, it's great to have you here. And so I'm not going to botch. It is run. Yeah. Got it. How can I help? Well, we've only had our mortgage for a year, and we got thirty and it's on the condo. And we were looking to see if it would be worth while to refinance into a fifteen and just a little background, and I have been paying an extra one hundred dollars a month on the loan at four in four percent month. So I didn't know if me doing the hundred dollars extra was better than go into the whole refinance process. How long will you stay at the condo? Or looking to stay there for at least ten or more years, then it would be the your advantage to look at doing a refi. Does your condo qualify? Under federal guidelines to be underwritten by the big mortgage underwriters in Fannie Mae, Freddie. Mac. That I am not sure I know that my credit union when we were initially looking for mortgages, wouldn't finance bent meet their God. So you did not meet their guidelines. No, right. That's why soon as you said condo. I started thinking. Well, normally a refi would be great. But you may not be able to qualify for the really good rates out there, depending on the status of loan products. Available. Do you know who the president is your condo board condo association board? Yeah. You should call him or her and ask what things are like right now for people doing loans. Okay. And if Fannie Mae or Freddie MAC or both are accepting loans from your condo. Okay. And if they are even though the credit union wouldn't touch alone for you. You would go to a mortgage banker mortgage broker in that case and see what they could place. Okay. But if loans are tough to place for your condo that would change the answer. And you're likely not going to get in the low enough rate to make it worth going through a refi. Okay. And so is it a whole point that I wanna look at it used to be, you know, if you go back to the old rules it used to be you want to two point savings to make it pay the way refinances worked today the expenses are generally better than they used to be. So what I like for you to do is look at it as a thirty month rule. Save enough interest over because he can't be your payment because fifteen year loan carries higher payment. Will you save enough? An interest added up over thirty months to cover what those closing costs are. Okay. And that would be the trigger that if you can make back the costs the refi in thirty go for it. Okay. Sounds great. Well, thank you for your help. Absolutely. And have a great day. Jose is with us on the Clark Howard show. Hello, jose. Hey, cloudy. How are you today? Great. Thank you. You wanna talk about your home? If I do what's going on with it. So I'm twenty seven years old was lucky enough that coming to property of my own. I bought a house back in two thousand thirteen I've been doing payment had a pie. And I reached the point where I'm an a position where I can use all of my saving, not including my retirement account who pay off the house. So I wanted to ask you we thought that the route to go so at twenty seven years old you'd be mortgage debt free, correct? Yeah. And you have a good job that secure. Yeah. I know this is weird. But I think that you're somebody who obviously is in a hurry to be financially independent. Normally, I would ask you all kinds of questions about your interest rate on your mortgage and all that go ahead and pay off the home. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Excellent. Had you know the question. Also, once I do pay off the house to you know, my bullet still void all the interest that I'm going to have to pay by do live the life of the mortgage. Should I keep home insurance? Or should I switch the coverage? This something you definitely want home insurance because you don't want to own a home free and clear have a catastrophic loss, and then all that you've.

If you want to buy a house this year joining us now is Jonathan lawless vice president for product development and affordable housing at Fannie Mae. Jonathan welcome to real estate today. Thank you so much given. It's a pleasure to be here. We are. So glad you're here. So Jonathan in just about five weeks, the spring market will officially begin all across America. So tell me what is Fannie may have ready for someone who goes looking for a mortgage. The Fannie Mae is keeping a close eye on some of the major trends in the housing industry today and trying to make sure we have the right solutions to fit in. So I will say. Say, you know, the number one trend, we're keeping an eye on is this lack of supply in most markets almost all markets. In fact, just simply do not have enough homes for sale to meet the growing demand. Particularly of the millennial generation is looking to buy their first home so Fannie Mae and looking at this from three different angles number one to make sure for those who have limited amounts put down that they can qualify. Number two. Taking advantage of some of the way that new technology is coming out new programs coming out to help people buy homes, and then lastly looking at renovation as a way to get a fixer upper and make that process easy to do. Well, let's walk through them. And I know that number one making mortgages more accessible to people and making them easier to get is the cornerstone of your product called home ready, which can be had for as little as three percent down. Can you tell us about that? Absolutely. So one misunderstanding that many people have is that you need. Something like twenty percents but down in the mortgage. The fact of the matter is home ready. There's a product that only requires borrowers to put three percent down. It has very very reduced pricing and mortgage insurance requirements, and it's extremely flexible. And so for people out there who are thinking, well, maybe I'll have enough to put down if you have three percent down, and you'd have a reasonable amount of income. There's a good chance you can qualify to purchase a home today. Interesting. What kind of credit score? Are you asking for it really depends on what your other attackers are? So for example, where your income is and where your savings are. I would say if you're looking at a six sixty six eighty five to score or higher. There's a very good chance that you can qualify with the home ready. Interesting..

"This is data or this background information is from a Congressional Budget Office report that came out twenty ten titled Fannie Mae, Freddie, MAC and the federal in the secondary mortgage market what Fannie Mae and Freddie MAC do as they purchase mortgages that meet certain criteria. And then they took those mortgages and package them into a pool of loans, which it's known as mortgage backed securities and they guarantee against losses from defaults on those underlying oranges. Those mortgage backed securities are sold to investors and this process is known as secure desertion. In addition what Fannie Mae and Freddie MAC do in order to access capital to to initially by these loans. They issue debt, which is known as agency securities, which are also sold to investors now up until two thousand eight these GS's were were privately owned. They had stock. Outstanding. Fact, they one very. They performed very well this talks over time. I remember remembers an institutional money manager looking at a number of active large company, stock managers and typically they would hope they would hold Ginnie Mae or Freddie MAC. Here's the thing though. Even though they were private they had this implicit federal guarantee. They played a prominent role in the mortgage market, and they could borrow at very cheap rates. They were exempt from state and local taxes. They didn't have to register their securities with the security Exchange Commission. They had a line of credit with the US treasury. And so they had these this advantage. And as a result, they could borrow very very cheaply. Then the housing crisis came and in two thousand eight. US government took over Fannie Mae. And Freddie MAC now there's also Ginnie Mae which is which is which guarantees the mortgages, FHA loans and loans.

"You can look at life insurance companies banks Fannie Mae, and Freddie MAC, Freddie. I think was the largest single source of funding in that marketplace in certain recent years, and so that's Ben a large and growing business now compared to our single family business, it's relatively small just because of the single family businesses a lot larger in terms of the overall sort of mortgage finance for the United States, one of the things that was pretty obvious. When we looked at the data post crisis was that will you have certain number of existing homes and typically when you look at existing home sales new home sales or something like a sixth or seventh of that. But the big change was the rise of of multifamily homes apartment buildings any sort of rental as opposed to ownership is that trend continuing or is that kind of leveled off as as the economy's gotten better. I think you're starting to see very beginning data's all all their. Yeah. We're sort of have to see. But I think you're seeing some leveling officer. There isn't so much as a movement as we saw back in the early crisis years two thousand ten there was a big shift of single family homes, for example, from ownership renter ship some of that has remained in renter ship, but you're seeing homeownership break tick up a little bit. We may continue to see some some uptrend there some shifting of those homes, but not in any big way in any data that I've seen one of the cheapest sectors of the US stock market has been the home builder's, they are unloved and unwanted and therefore, very inexpensive. If if you were going to make a bet as to win homebuilding might start. To revert back to normal when we look at a long term chart, we're still below the levels that prior recessions bottomed at if you go back forty years. It's amazing that not only did we hit the level where we usually, you know, touch basement during recession we went straight through in down below. And we still haven't gotten back up over those levels. It's it's quite astonishing. Yeah. You mentioned some of charts and share on Twitter one of my favorite recent ones because it was striking to me when I put this together was to look at the housing supply. So you add up single family homes apartments, manufactured home shipments in the United States, which the census is tracked that since nineteen sixty eight in the asks for full year twenty seventeen the US added about one point two five million units, which is up from every year since two thousand eight however, if you compare that number against all of the years prior to two thousand eight only one year one single year to the US ad fewer overall homes, apartments and manufacturer. Homes.
