    Published Tue, Mar 07 2017 8:44 AM by www.corelogic.com
    -Forecast Indicates Increase of 4.8 Percent by January 2018- IRVINE, Calif., March 7, 2017- CoreLogic ® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, today released its CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI ™ ) and HPI Forecast ™ for January 2017 which shows home prices are up both year over year and month over month. Home prices nationwide, including distressed sales, increased year over year by 6.9 percent in January 2017 compared with January 2016 and increased month over month by 0.7 percent in January 2017 compared with December 2016 ,* according to the CoreLogic HPI. The CoreLogic HPI Forecast indicates that home prices will increase by 4.8 percent on a year-over-year basis from January 2017 to January 2018, and on a month-over-month basis home prices are expected to increase by 0.1 percent from January 2017 to February 2017. The CoreLogic HPI Forecast is a projection of home prices using the CoreLogic HPI and other economic variables. Values are derived from state-level forecasts by weighting indices according to the number of owner-occupied households for each state. "With lean for-sale inventories and low rental vacancy rates, many markets have seen housing prices outpace inflation," said Dr. Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. "Over the 12 months through January of this year, the CoreLogic Home Price Index recorded a 6.9 percent rise in home prices nationally and the CoreLogic Single-Family Rental Index was up 2.7 percent-both rising faster than inflation." "Home prices continue to climb across the nation, and the spring home buying season is shaping up to be one of the strongest in recent memory," said Frank Martell, president and CEO of CoreLogic. "A potent mix of progressive economic recovery, demographics, tight housing stocks and continued low mortgage rates are expected to support this robust market outlook for the foreseeable future. We expect the CoreLogic...

  • 3:12 PM » February NFP Forecasts
    Published Mon, Mar 06 2017 3:12 PM by Calculated Risk Blog
    A couple of NFP forecasts ... From Nomura: Incoming data on the labor market suggest strong job gains in February. Data on sentiment, including the Empire State, Philly Fed and ISM manufacturing surveys, point to better hiring activity in February. Initial and continuing claims data continued to trend lower, implying that involuntary layoffs remain low and that firms are eager to retain workers. In particular, the 4-week moving average of initial jobless claims inched down further, reaching its lowest point in decades. Based on these positive readings, we forecast private nonfarm payrolls to have added 215k jobs in February . Given the recent employment trend in the public sector, we expect public sector payrolls to remain unchanged. ... Moreover, we forecast the unemployment rate to inch down slightly to 4.7% in February ... we expect average hourly earnings to have increased by 0.3% m-o-m (2.7% y-o-y) ... emphasis added From Merrill Lynch: We expect nonfarm payrolls to grow by 185,000 in February ... Given the recent bump up in optimism in manufacturing surveys, we could see better job growth in the industrial sector. Moreover, weather conditions have been broadly favorable for construction activity in February as temperatures have been warmer than normal. This could lead to another month of strong payroll gains in the construction sector. We expect limited gains in government payrolls. We are forecasting the unemployment rate to tick down to 4.7% from 4.8% ... We are forecasting a solid rebound of 0.3% mom gain which will boost the yoy rate to 2.8% (unrounded: 2.75%), which was the trend over the second half of last year.

    Published Mon, Mar 06 2017 8:30 AM by Calculated Risk Blog
    Black Knight Financial Services (BKFS) released their Mortgage Monitor report for January today. According to BKFS, 4.25% of mortgages were delinquent in January, down from 5.09% in January 2016. BKFS also reported that 0.94% of mortgages were in the foreclosure process, down from 1.30% a year ago. This gives a total of 5.19% delinquent or in foreclosure. Press Release: Black Knight's Mortgage Monitor: Strong Q4 Pushes 2016 Originations to Highest Level in Nine Years; Reperforming Loan Population Sits at Nearly Two Million Today, the Data & Analytics division of Black Knight Financial Services, Inc. (NYSE: BKFS) released its latest Mortgage Monitor Report, based on data as of the end of January 2017. This month, Black Knight examined final Q4 2016 origination data to get a sense of purchase and refinance lending volumes and trends for the year as a whole. In addition, the report also looked at the nation's population of reperforming loans (RPLs), mortgages that had been at least 120 days or more delinquent or in active foreclosure at some point in the past but have now been current for at least four months. As Black Knight Data & Analytics Executive Vice President Ben Graboske explained, 2016 was the best year for overall mortgage originations since 2007. "A strong fourth quarter finish to the year pushed total 2016 origination volumes to the highest level seen in nine years," said Graboske. "We've now seen nine consecutive quarters of double-digit purchase origination growth, and growth overall in the purchase market in 21 of the past 22 quarters. The $2.1 trillion in first lien mortgages originated throughout the year represented a 17 percent increase over 2015, stemming from a 22 percent jump in refinance lending and a 13 percent increase in purchase loans. This was the second straight year of double-digit growth in purchase lending, which hit its highest yearly total since 2006 at $1.1 trillion. As good of a year...
