October Housing Report

The Administration’s goal is to promote stability for both the housing

market and homeowners. To meet these objectives in the context of

a very challenging market, the Administration developed a broad

approach implementing state and local housing agency initiatives, tax

credits for homebuyers, neighborhood stabilization and community

development programs, mortgage modifi cations and refi nancing,

continued Federal Housing Administration (FHA) engagement, and

support for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In addition, Federal

Reserve and Treasury MBS purchase programs have helped to keep

mortgage interest rates at record lows over the past year. More detail

on the Administration’s efforts can be found in the Appendix.

October 2010 Scorecard on Administration’s

Comprehensive Housing Initiative

The President’s housing market recovery efforts began immediately after

taking offi ce in February 2009. The October 2010 housing scorecard

includes the following key indicators of market health and results of the

Administration’s comprehensive response, as outlined above:

• Families continued to benefit from the lowest rates in

history on 30-year fixed mortgages. Since April of 2009,

record low rates have helped more than 7.1 million homeowners

to refi nance, resulting in more stable home prices and $12.7

billion in total borrower savings.

• As expected with the expiration of the Homebuyer Tax

Credit, new and existing home sales remained below

levels seen in the first half of 2010. At the same time, home

prices remained level in the past year after 33 straight months of

decline and homeowners added $95 billion in home equity in the

second quarter.

• More than 3.52 million modification arrangements were

started between April 2009 and the end of August 2010

—nearly triple the number of foreclosure completions

during that time. These included more than 1.3 million trial

Home Affordable Modifi cation Program (HAMP) modifi cation

starts, more than 510,000 Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

loss mitigation and early delinquency interventions, and more

than 1.6 million proprietary modifi cations under HOPE Now.

While some homeowners may have received help from more than

one program, the number of agreements offered nearly tripled

foreclosure completions for the same period (1.3 million).

• At nine months, almost 90 percent of homeowners

remain in their permanent HAMP modification, with 11

percent defaulted. Early data indicate that HAMP permanent

modifi cations are performing well over time, with lower

delinquency rates than those reported by the industry at large.

At nine months, less than 16 percent of permanent modifi cations

are 60+ days delinquent. To view the September HAMP Servicer

Performance Report, visit: http://www.fi nancialstability.gov/

docs/Sept%20MHA%20Public%202010.pdf

Data in the scorecard also show that the recovery in the housing

market continues to remain fragile, for example, foreclosure

completions continue to move upward and a large supply of homes

are being held off the market. While the recovery will take place over

time, the Administration remains committed to its efforts to prevent

avoidable foreclosures and stabilize the housing market.

The impact of recent new and expanded resources is expected to

contribute to progress captured in future Housing Scorecards. For

example, in July the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced

a short refi nance option targeted to help people who owe more on

their mortgage than their home is worth because their local markets

saw large declines in home values. The option will allow certain

underwater non-FHA borrowers – those current on their existing

mortgage and whose lenders agree to write off at least 10 percent of

the unpaid principal balance of the fi rst mortgage – the opportunity to

qualify for a new FHA-insured mortgage.

October 2010

U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development

U.S. Department of the Treasury

The Administration has taken a broad set of actions to stabilize the housing market and help American

homeowners. A year ago, stress in the fi nancial system had severely reduced the supply of mortgage credit,

limiting the ability of Americans to buy homes or refi nance mortgages. Millions of responsible families who

had made their monthly payments and had fulfi lled their obligations saw their property values fall. They also

found themselves unable to refi nance at lower mortgage rates.

In February 2009, less than one month after taking offi ce, President Obama announced the Homeowner

Affordability and Stability Plan. As part of this plan and through other housing initiatives, the Administration

has taken the following actions to strengthen the housing market:

• Supported Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to ensure continued access to affordable mortgage credit;

• The Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury purchased more than $1.4 trillion in agency mortgage

backed securities through independent MBS purchase programs, helping to keep mortgage rates at

historic lows;

• Launched a modifi cation initiative to help homeowners reduce mortgage payments to affordable levels

and to prevent avoidable foreclosures;

• Launched a $23.5 billion Housing Finance Agencies Initiative to increase sustainable homeownership

and rental resources;

• Supported the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit, which has helped 2.5 million American families

purchase homes;

• Provided more than $5 billion in support for affordable rental housing through low income housing tax

credit programs and $6.92 billion in support for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program to restore

neighborhoods hardest hit by the concentrated foreclosures;

• Created the $4.1 billion HFA Hardest Hit Fund for innovative foreclosure prevention programs in the

nation’s hardest hit housing markets.

• Supported home purchase and refi nance activity through the FHA to provide access to affordable

mortgage capital and help homeowners prevent foreclosures.

###

AppendixThe Administration’s goal is to promote stability for both the housing


market and homeowners. To meet these objectives in the context of

a very challenging market, the Administration developed a broad

approach implementing state and local housing agency initiatives, tax

credits for homebuyers, neighborhood stabilization and community

development programs, mortgage modifi cations and refi nancing,

continued Federal Housing Administration (FHA) engagement, and

support for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In addition, Federal

Reserve and Treasury MBS purchase programs have helped to keep

mortgage interest rates at record lows over the past year. More detail

on the Administration’s efforts can be found in the Appendix.

October 2010 Scorecard on Administration’s

Comprehensive Housing Initiative

The President’s housing market recovery efforts began immediately after

taking offi ce in February 2009. The October 2010 housing scorecard

includes the following key indicators of market health and results of the

Administration’s comprehensive response, as outlined above:

• Families continued to benefit from the lowest rates in

history on 30-year fixed mortgages. Since April of 2009,

record low rates have helped more than 7.1 million homeowners

to refi nance, resulting in more stable home prices and $12.7

billion in total borrower savings.

• As expected with the expiration of the Homebuyer Tax

Credit, new and existing home sales remained below

levels seen in the first half of 2010. At the same time, home

prices remained level in the past year after 33 straight months of

decline and homeowners added $95 billion in home equity in the

second quarter.

• More than 3.52 million modification arrangements were

started between April 2009 and the end of August 2010

—nearly triple the number of foreclosure completions

during that time. These included more than 1.3 million trial

Home Affordable Modifi cation Program (HAMP) modifi cation

starts, more than 510,000 Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

loss mitigation and early delinquency interventions, and more

than 1.6 million proprietary modifi cations under HOPE Now.

While some homeowners may have received help from more than

one program, the number of agreements offered nearly tripled

foreclosure completions for the same period (1.3 million).

• At nine months, almost 90 percent of homeowners

remain in their permanent HAMP modification, with 11

percent defaulted. Early data indicate that HAMP permanent

modifi cations are performing well over time, with lower

delinquency rates than those reported by the industry at large.

At nine months, less than 16 percent of permanent modifi cations

are 60+ days delinquent. To view the September HAMP Servicer

Performance Report, visit: http://www.fi nancialstability.gov/

docs/Sept%20MHA%20Public%202010.pdf

Data in the scorecard also show that the recovery in the housing

market continues to remain fragile, for example, foreclosure

completions continue to move upward and a large supply of homes

are being held off the market. While the recovery will take place over

time, the Administration remains committed to its efforts to prevent

avoidable foreclosures and stabilize the housing market.

The impact of recent new and expanded resources is expected to

contribute to progress captured in future Housing Scorecards. For

example, in July the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced

a short refi nance option targeted to help people who owe more on

their mortgage than their home is worth because their local markets

saw large declines in home values. The option will allow certain

underwater non-FHA borrowers – those current on their existing

mortgage and whose lenders agree to write off at least 10 percent of

the unpaid principal balance of the fi rst mortgage – the opportunity to

qualify for a new FHA-insured mortgage.

U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
Office of Policy Development e Obama Administration’s E orts To Stabilize e Housing Market and Help American H aondm Reeoswenarecrhs
October 2010

U.S Department of Housing and Urban Development

U.S. Department of the Treasury

The Administration has taken a broad set of actions to stabilize the housing market and help American

homeowners. A year ago, stress in the fi nancial system had severely reduced the supply of mortgage credit,

limiting the ability of Americans to buy homes or refi nance mortgages. Millions of responsible families who

had made their monthly payments and had fulfi lled their obligations saw their property values fall. They also

found themselves unable to refi nance at lower mortgage rates.

In February 2009, less than one month after taking offi ce, President Obama announced the Homeowner

Affordability and Stability Plan. As part of this plan and through other housing initiatives, the Administration

has taken the following actions to strengthen the housing market:

• Supported Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to ensure continued access to affordable mortgage credit;

• The Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury purchased more than $1.4 trillion in agency mortgage

backed securities through independent MBS purchase programs, helping to keep mortgage rates at

historic lows;

• Launched a modifi cation initiative to help homeowners reduce mortgage payments to affordable levels

and to prevent avoidable foreclosures;

• Launched a $23.5 billion Housing Finance Agencies Initiative to increase sustainable homeownership

and rental resources;

• Supported the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit, which has helped 2.5 million American families

purchase homes;

• Provided more than $5 billion in support for affordable rental housing through low income housing tax

credit programs and $6.92 billion in support for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program to restore

neighborhoods hardest hit by the concentrated foreclosures;

• Created the $4.1 billion HFA Hardest Hit Fund for innovative foreclosure prevention programs in the

nation’s hardest hit housing markets.

• Supported home purchase and refi nance activity through the FHA to provide access to affordable

mortgage capital and help homeowners prevent foreclosures.

###

AppendixThe Administration’s goal is to promote stability for both the housing


market and homeowners. To meet these objectives in the context of

a very challenging market, the Administration developed a broad

approach implementing state and local housing agency initiatives, tax

credits for homebuyers, neighborhood stabilization and community

development programs, mortgage modifi cations and refi nancing,

continued Federal Housing Administration (FHA) engagement, and

support for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. In addition, Federal

Reserve and Treasury MBS purchase programs have helped to keep

mortgage interest rates at record lows over the past year. More detail

on the Administration’s efforts can be found in the Appendix.

October 2010 Scorecard on Administration’s

Comprehensive Housing Initiative

The President’s housing market recovery efforts began immediately after

taking offi ce in February 2009. The October 2010 housing scorecard

includes the following key indicators of market health and results of the

Administration’s comprehensive response, as outlined above:

• Families continued to benefit from the lowest rates in

history on 30-year fixed mortgages. Since April of 2009,

record low rates have helped more than 7.1 million homeowners

to refi nance, resulting in more stable home prices and $12.7

billion in total borrower savings.

• As expected with the expiration of the Homebuyer Tax

Credit, new and existing home sales remained below

levels seen in the first half of 2010. At the same time, home

prices remained level in the past year after 33 straight months of

decline and homeowners added $95 billion in home equity in the

second quarter.

• More than 3.52 million modification arrangements were

started between April 2009 and the end of August 2010

—nearly triple the number of foreclosure completions

during that time. These included more than 1.3 million trial

Home Affordable Modifi cation Program (HAMP) modifi cation

starts, more than 510,000 Federal Housing Administration (FHA)

loss mitigation and early delinquency interventions, and more

than 1.6 million proprietary modifi cations under HOPE Now.

While some homeowners may have received help from more than

one program, the number of agreements offered nearly tripled

foreclosure completions for the same period (1.3 million).

• At nine months, almost 90 percent of homeowners

remain in their permanent HAMP modification, with 11

percent defaulted. Early data indicate that HAMP permanent

modifi cations are performing well over time, with lower

delinquency rates than those reported by the industry at large.

At nine months, less than 16 percent of permanent modifi cations

are 60+ days delinquent. To view the September HAMP Servicer

Performance Report, visit: http://www.fi nancialstability.gov/

docs/Sept%20MHA%20Public%202010.pdf

Data in the scorecard also show that the recovery in the housing

market continues to remain fragile, for example, foreclosure

completions continue to move upward and a large supply of homes

are being held off the market. While the recovery will take place over

time, the Administration remains committed to its efforts to prevent

avoidable foreclosures and stabilize the housing market.

The impact of recent new and expanded resources is expected to

contribute to progress captured in future Housing Scorecards. For

example, in July the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) announced

a short refi nance option targeted to help people who owe more on

their mortgage than their home is worth because their local markets

saw large declines in home values. The option will allow certain

underwater non-FHA borrowers – those current on their existing

mortgage and whose lenders agree to write off at least 10 percent of

the unpaid principal balance of the fi rst mortgage – the opportunity to

qualify for a new FHA-insured mortgage.

The Administration has taken a broad set of actions to stabilize the housing market and help American

homeowners. A year ago, stress in the fi nancial system had severely reduced the supply of mortgage credit,

limiting the ability of Americans to buy homes or refi nance mortgages. Millions of responsible families who

had made their monthly payments and had fulfi lled their obligations saw their property values fall. They also

found themselves unable to refi nance at lower mortgage rates.

In February 2009, less than one month after taking offi ce, President Obama announced the Homeowner

Affordability and Stability Plan. As part of this plan and through other housing initiatives, the Administration

has taken the following actions to strengthen the housing market:

• Supported Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to ensure continued access to affordable mortgage credit;

• The Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury purchased more than $1.4 trillion in agency mortgage

backed securities through independent MBS purchase programs, helping to keep mortgage rates at

historic lows;

• Launched a modifi cation initiative to help homeowners reduce mortgage payments to affordable levels

and to prevent avoidable foreclosures;

• Launched a $23.5 billion Housing Finance Agencies Initiative to increase sustainable homeownership

and rental resources;

• Supported the First Time Homebuyer Tax Credit, which has helped 2.5 million American families

purchase homes;

• Provided more than $5 billion in support for affordable rental housing through low income housing tax

credit programs and $6.92 billion in support for the Neighborhood Stabilization Program to restore

neighborhoods hardest hit by the concentrated foreclosures;

• Created the $4.1 billion HFA Hardest Hit Fund for innovative foreclosure prevention programs in the

nation’s hardest hit housing markets.

• Supported home purchase and refi nance activity through the FHA to provide access to affordable

mortgage capital and help homeowners prevent foreclosures.
