Prepayments on mortgage loans are expected to slow in 2023 as delinquencies on these loans rise, according to a new report from Fannie Mae. The number of seriously delinquent mortgages (those delinquent by 90 days or more) is expected to increase from 1.5 percent in 2020 to 2.1 percent in 2021 and 2.5 percent in 2022. The increase in delinquencies is expected to lead to a decrease in the number of homeowners prepaying their loans, from 3.8 percent in 2020 to 2.7 percent in 2021 and 2.1 percent in 2022.
This article discusses the current state of mortgage rates and the housing market. It cites a number of sources that suggest that rates will remain low for the foreseeable future. This is good news for those looking to buy a home, as they will be able to get a lower rate. However, it is bad news for those who are currently in the process of selling a home, as they will likely have to accept a lower offer.
Many mortgage companies are unsure of the best way to communicate rate changes to their borrowers. Some companies have started using social media to announce changes, while others have released statements to the press. Some companies have even started sending out letters to their customers. The best way to communicate rate changes will vary from company to company, but it is important to make sure that the method chosen is effective and consistent.
A federal appeals court has ruled that the source of funding for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is unconstitutional. The CFPB is a government agency that was created in response to the 2008 financial crisis. The agency is tasked with protecting consumers from unfair and deceptive practices in the financial industry.
The CFPB is funded by the Federal Reserve, which is an independent agency. The appellate court ruled that the CFPB's structure violates the separation of powers because it gives the agency too much power. The CFPB can only be overturned by a vote of Congress, and the agency's director can only be removed for cause.
The decision will likely be appealed to the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court upholds the ruling, it could have a major impact on the CFPB's authority.
