The delinquency rate fell 7.3% while serious delinquencies fell by 11,000 month-over-month. Meanwhile, prepayments increased by 25.7%, which Black Knight notes is the latest, and “loudest,” sign of increased refinance incentive in the market. Black Knight Data & Analytics President Ben Graboske explains that falling interest rates and a subsequent increase in rate/term refinances has worked in servicers’ favor.“As we’ve reported in the past, retention rates tend to be higher for rate/term refinances than any other type of transaction, and that’s just what we observed as of the end of Q2 2019,” said Graboske. “Falling rates and an abundance of refinance candidates were primary drivers behind servicers retaining 24% of all refinancing borrowers – the highest such retention rate since late 2017 – and 30% of rate/term borrowers specifically. While losing the business of more than two out of every three rate-driven refinance customers is not exactly extraordinary performance, it is significantly better than the sub-20% retention rates seen throughout much of 2018. The good news is that interest rates are at three-year lows, and anecdotal evidence suggests that in recent weeks, mortgage lenders had been inundated with inbound refinance business that’s relatively easy to retain.”Additionally, tappable equity rose for the second quarter in a row, gaining $335 billion in Q2 2019, now at an all-time high of $6.3 trillion.“The not-so-good news is that – in an environment of record-high levels of tappable equity and low interest rates that makes cash-out refinances an affordable option for accessing that equity – servicers are retaining just one in five cash-out borrowers,” Graboske adds. “Even though rate-term refis are surging right now, cash-outs still made up some 62% of all refinances in the second quarter. Add to that the fact that borrowers refinancing out of 2012-2017 vintage loans account for nearly half of all refis so far in 2019, nearly 80% were cash-out transactions.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Delinquencies Fall While Prepayments Rise Home / Daily Dose / Delinquencies Fall While Prepayments Rise The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Investment, Market Studies, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Subscribe

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player “I was one of the first to leave around midnight. Neymar cut the cake and I left,” the former Sevilla boss explained. “It’s good for the collective spirit. Today, they are all ready with the idea and the mentality to prepare the match tomorrow. “When you play three games a week, players do not have much time to enjoy moments outside of football. “I trust my players, they are great professionals. This squad thinks 70 per cent of football and 30 per cent of spare time.”Images of Neymar’s celebrations soon swept across social media and Emery regrets the passing of a simpler time.”Fifteen or 20 years ago, there were no social networks and when a player had a birthday, it was more private,” he said.”It was important that the whole team be together. The president [Nasser Al-Khelaifi], [sporting director] Antero Henrique, the squad and all the staff were there with Neymar, who was having an important moment. “It was a good time.

Physically, he is not yet 100 per cent but he has to look for rhythm by playing matches. “On Saturday, he played a good 30 minutes and he is an option.”

PITTSBURGH – Survive and advance. That’s the mentality many basketball teams adopt in the NCAA Tournament. Ohio State is not one of those teams. The No. 2 seed Buckeyes will face No. 7 seed Gonzaga Saturday after defeating Loyola (MD), 78-59, Thursday, but the Buckeyes were not satisfied with their performance. Sophomore forward Deshaun Thomas, who scored a career-high 31 points in OSU’s first game, said he was treating the performance as a loss. OSU committed 18 turnovers Thursday and many Buckeyes said that if they continue to be careless with the ball against Gonzaga, they might be sent packing. “I think the first thing that jumps out at us is our inability to take care of the ball,” sophomore guard Aaron Craft said. “Turning it over 20 times is something we can’t do especially against a great team like Gonzaga tomorrow.” Gonzaga played pressure defense against No. 10 seed West Virginia in their first NCAA Tournament game en route to a 77-54 victory. OSU has never played the Bulldogs, but Gonzaga matched up with both Illinois and Michigan State earlier in the season. Gonzaga lost both games by seven points. Despite being a mid-major in the West Coast Conference, Gonzaga reminds OSU coach Thad Matta of teams in the Big Ten. “There’s a lot of similarities to their transition half-court offense to Michigan State,” Matta said. “And (they resemble) Indiana with their personnel. “ Gonzaga coach Mark Few said the Buckeyes will be a tough matchup for his team, but thinks he has the players to compete. “This is going to be a very difficult matchup for us, but at the same time we have good bigs, they have good bigs,” Few said. “The strength and the core of this team was built around our inside guys … much like Ohio State.” The inside play for Gonzaga starts with 7-foot senior center Robert Sacre who was named his conference’s defensive player of the year. He averages 11.7 points and 6.3 rebounds per game on the season and had a team-high 14 points in the victory against West Virginia. Sacre will likely be matched up with OSU sophomore forward Jared Sullinger, who has averaged 21 points per game since the Buckeyes entered the postseason. Sullinger said he got a chance to watch Sacre a little bit before OSU’s game. “He was good. He was athletic,” Sullinger said. “He did a little bit of everything for them.” Sullinger had 12 points and 11 rebounds against Loyola (MD). Thomas has been the guy leading OSU as of late, though. At 21.5 points per game, he’s been OSU’s leading scorer through the postseason. Thomas has scored in double digits in each of the last 10 games. “Deshaun is probably one of our most consistent players throughout the however many games we’ve played,” Matta said. “What he’s brought to this team has No. 1 been his consistency and No. 2 guys look at him and see the effort and the commitment he’s made to do other things.” Thomas’ 31 points Thursday made him one of seven Buckeyes all time to score 30 points in an NCAA Tournament game. “I was just trying to get to the right spots at the right time,” Thomas said of his performance. “Then I was just knocking them down. I was just feeling it a little bit.” Few said that because OSU has scoring options like Thomas and Sullinger, it’s hard to focus on any one guy. “You’re just going to have to pick your poison on how much defensive attention you give to Sullinger when you have other great players like (senior guard William Buford) and Thomas and Aaron Craft,” Few said. Gonzaga and OSU will tip off at about 2:50 p.m. at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.
