Year-over-year, first mortgage default rates stood at 0.66% in the midst of nationwide stay-at-home orders due to the pandemic.The S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices measures changes in consumer credit defaults, and in addition to first mortgages, measures bank card defaults and auto loan defaults.Unemployment numbers continue to take steps in the right direction as more and more Americans are regaining their financial footing after a year of the pandemic. Just last week, the U.S. Department of Labor reported unemployment claims at 473,000, a decrease of 34,000 from the previous week’s level, and the lowest level for initial claims since March 14, 2020 when it was 256,000.Regionally, four of the five major metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) showed lower default rates in April compared to March. Miami saw the largest drop, falling 19 basis points to 1.04%. Chicago decreased nine basis points to 0.50%, while Dallas was down eight basis points to 0.51%. New York was three basis points lower at 0.83%. Los Angeles was the only MSA that increased, up two basis points to 0.52%.According to Black Knight, nearly 250,000 forbearance plans list expiration dates in May 2021, meaning that next month’s S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Index may see a rise in first mortgage default if those homeowners do not execute workouts with their servicers.And with first mortgage default rates holding at 0.33%, servicers are bracing for a potential flood of requests for forbearance extensions to curb any sort of rise in delinquencies as the nation’s economy looks to regain its footing.“Some families that had overspent during the year-end holiday season, and then faced financial stress in the new year, may slip behind on a mortgage payment by February,” recently said CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft. “During each of the last five years, the 30-day delinquency rate moved higher from January to February. With economic conditions improving, we expect delinquency rates to move lower in coming months.”Further, in Q1, the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) reported the delinquency rate for mortgage loans on one-to-four-unit residential properties decreased to a rate of 6.38% of all loans outstanding. The MBA includes loans in forbearance if the payment was not made based on the original terms of the mortgage. MBA’s research shows the delinquency rate dropped 35 basis points from Q4 of 2020, and experts at the MBA says there has never been such a substantial decline in the delinquency rate over such a short period of time.

Bolt wins 150m race at Copacabana beach

first_imgUsain Bolt opened his season with a 150-metre win on a track set up at Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday.Bolt cruised to victory in 14.42 seconds, falling short of the world-best mark of 14.35 he set on the streets of Manchester in 2009. Antigua and Barbuda’s Daniel Bailey was second, ahead of Bruno Lins of Brazil and Alex Quinones of Ecuador.Bolt said he was satisfied with his performance after the race, which was held under scorching heat on a four-lane track built on Copacabana beach in the host city of the 2016 Olympics.“It was my first sprint race, definitely a good start for the season,” Bolt said. “I’m looking forward to coming down here in 2016.”Bolt celebrated by dancing with a few Brazilian dancers after the run, which was an official event supervised by the IAAF.He threw his running shoes to the fans, who endured huge lines to try to get near the track to see the Jamaican star up close.Bolt, the first man to successfully defend the 100 and 200 titles at the Olympics, was in Rio for four days, visiting social projects and participating in promotional events. Bolt said he is still “not sure” if he will compete at the London Diamond League meet in July, but agent Ricky Simms reiterated on Sunday that he is working to ensure the Jamaican returns to England.“We’ve had positive negotiations, it will be great for him to go back there a year after everything that happened last year,” Simms said. “It’s going to be a good event. We’ve just got a few things to finalize. In the next months, hopefully, we’ll find solutions.”The London meet, celebrating a year since the Olympics, would be one of his last competitions before the world championships in Moscow in August.Also Sunday, double-amputee Alan Oliveira of Brazil beat American runner Jerome Singleton at the Copacabana track. Oliveira originally was to race against Oscar Pistorius, who withdrew after being charged with the shooting death of his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. Oliveira beat the South African in the 200 at the London Paralympics.“I hope everything is solved, that the truth is told and that all parties solve this. Let’s see, let’s see how things will unfold,” Oliveira said. “He’s a great athlete inside the track, did what he did for Paralympic sport and I hope he continues to do so.”last_img read more
