Private investors are directly buying a small but growing share of loans that have long been the domain of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, a sign of the changing dynamics in the $11 trillion mortgage industry. More mortgages that meet the standards for Fannie and Freddie to buy are instead flowing into the private market, where banks and other financial institutions pool them into bonds and sell them to investors without government backing. Firms that have recently issued these so-called private-label securities with a significant amount of such loans in them—some up to 100%—include Chimera Investment Corp. and Redwood Trust Inc., both real-estate investment trusts, as well as JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Flagstar Bancorp Inc.
As we highlighted last month, preferred shares of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac experienced dramatic increases in dollar trading volume to start 2019. That was not the case in February however, as dollar ...
, better known as Fannie Mae (FNMA), released their first Multifamily Green Bond Impact Report on Wednesday, highlighting projected financial, social, and environmental benefits resulting from Fannie Mae Green Bonds for U.S. housing.
Freddie Mac is providing financing for a portfolio of more than 300 rental homes under a now-defunct pilot program intended to help address the shortage of homes for middle-class families. The nearly $26 million deal with Freddie allows the company to obtain fixed-rate financing in a rising rate environment. The two-year-old company also provides credit counseling to residents and incentives such as a $100 gift card if they improve their credit score by 25 points or a 10% rental reduction if they get their score over 700 points.
WASHINGTON—A panel of Senate lawmakers on Tuesday voted along party lines to advance the nomination of Mark Calabria, President Trump’s pick to help overhaul the way many Americans finance their home purchases, setting up his likely confirmation later this spring. , Mr. Calabria told lawmakers earlier this month that he would work to preserve the popular 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage—a product he has criticized in the past—that currently accounts for approximately 90% of new home loans. If confirmed, Mr. Calabria would play a key role in shaping the Trump administration’s efforts to end the decadelong conservatorship of Fannie and Freddie, taken over at the height of the financial crisis in 2008.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the government-backed companies best known for their 30-year home loans, have emerged as the dominant source for rental apartment mortgages, too. The agencies’ cheap loans help push up property values and attract investors to buildings in gentrifying urban neighborhoods. Now, as federal lawmakers debate Fannie and Freddie’s future, their multifamily activities are also getting attention.
As U.S. homeowners can prepay their mortgages at par without penalty -- making prepayment speeds a crucial component in the pricing of mortgage bonds and rates -- the Federal Housing Finance Agency releases quarterly prepayment monitoring reports as the “consistency of prepayment rates is important to the success of UMBS and to the efficiency and liquidity of the secondary mortgage market,” according to the agency. "We expect the market to differentiate less between Freddie and Fannie and place more emphasis on servicers, loan size and weighted-average coupon within UMBS," Brean Capital head of fixed income strategy Scott Buchta said in a telephone interview with Bloomberg News.
Government-sponsored enterprises Federal National Mortgage Association (OTC: FNMA) and Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp (OTC: FMCC) have sprung back to life in 2019, with both stocks up more than 139 percent year-to-date. Odeon Capital Group analyst Dick Bove said he believes Federal Housing Financing Agency head nominee Mark Calabria will be good news for Fannie and Freddie investors who are hoping for an end to conservatorship.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac said on Thursday they will pay a combined $4.7 billion in dividends to the U.S. Treasury Department by March as the housing finance agencies posted stronger annual 2018 net incomes than a year earlier. In September 2008, the government took control of the two government-sponsored enterprises in a $187 billion bailout during the global credit crisis after they were exposed to soured subprime mortgages. The two agencies have handed over their profits to the U.S. Treasury under the terms of the conservatorship.
(FNMA) swung back to a profit at the end of the year, reporting net income of $3.23 billion in the fourth quarter. The company better known as Fannie Mae recorded a net loss of $6.5 billion in the fourth quarter of 2017 after recording a tax payment related to the remeasurement of its deferred tax assets. Net revenue fell 8% to $5.12 billion, Fannie said, as net-interest income, which accounts for the vast majority of revenue, fell.
Fannie Mae is trying to take the lead on making U.S. homes more energy efficient. The government-controlled mortgage giant is now the largest issuer of green bonds in the world. Fannie Mae Vice President, Chrissa Pagitsas, joins Adam Shapiro and Julie Hyman with details.
