From the book, A Safety Net That Works edited by Robert Doar, this section revealed how reforming housing policies could help reduce poverty.Concerning this issue, Ed Olsen, Professor of Economics and Public Policy at the University of Virginia gives his insight about how the current system is not doing underprivileged American’s any justice, but it has the possibility to.Touching on the most noteworthy aspects of his essay, Olsen writes that the bulk of low-income housing assistance in the U.S. is funded by the federal government through a large number of programs with a combined cost of more than $50 billion a year.However, the most significant issue with this is that low-income housing programs do not offer assistance to many of the poorest families that are eligible for them. Instead, eligible families that need assistance must get on a waiting list.So the current system of low-income housing assistance provides enormous subsidies to some households while offering none to others that are equally poor, and it provides subsidies to many people who are not poor while offering none to many of the poorest. Ultimately, Olsen believes all that is needed is better housing policies.“Well-designed reforms of the current system of low-income housing assistance would substantially alleviate poverty with less public spending,” Olsen said.In his essay, Olsen provides proposed reforms that would provide housing assistance to millions of additional people without spending more money. The proposed reforms deal with all parts of the current system—active construction programs, existing privately owned housing projects, public housing, and the housing voucher program.He also reveals his apprehensions about the evidence of the current policies, including constructing new units to house the homeless, building new homes for low-income families, and reducing the substantial differences in subsidies across identical households that characterize the current system.To view the full essay presented by the American Enterprise Institute, click here.

Earlier this year, the Federal Reserve announced that it will be keeping the federal funds rate at 2.25 to 2.50%. The Fed statement announced that The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System voted unanimously to set the interest rate paid on required and excess reserve balances at 2.35%.“The Fed held rates steady today,” said realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale following the May 1 announcement. “Data since the last FOMC meeting has been positive, with stronger than expected readings on March jobs and first quarter GDP.  The only laggard is inflation, which continues to fall below the Fed’s target. While the late 1970s were characterized by stagflation — weak economic growth and stubbornly high inflation — the late 2010s are notable for the opposite — decent economic growth and stubbornly low inflation. The playbook for responding to these conditions is less-well developed, hence the need for patience.”The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) directed the Open Market Desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York to roll over at auction the amount of principal payments from the Federal Reserve’s holdings of Treasury securities maturing during each calendar month that exceeds $15 billion. Additionally, the Desk is to continue reinvesting in agency mortgage-backed securities the amount of principal payments from the Federal Reserve’s holdings of agency debt and agency mortgage-backed securities received during each calendar month that exceeds $20 billion.According to LendingTree Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze, the Fed’s previous outlook may have been an overreaction resulting from December’s market volatility and the recent government shutdown.“In our interpretation, the Fed may be overreacting to market volatility that occurred in December and distortions to economic activity and data from the government shutdown,” Kapfidze stated. “While many measures of economic growth have slowed, sentiment data which is more timely has rebounded from those declines. There are also seasonal distortions that have been occurring in the first quarter, with the economy often accelerating in the second and third quarter.”Here’s what else is happening in The Week Ahead:Census Bureau New Residential Construction survey (June 18)Census Bureau Housing Starts (June 18)Federal Open Market Conference (June 18)Existing Home Sales (June 21) The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days agolast_img read more

According to REALTOR Magazine, homebuyers would need to be in the top 20% to 30% of household earners to afford a median-priced home in some of the priciest areas of the country. A study from Zoocasa examined where these pricey areas are, and where homeowners amy find the most affordable homes, factoring in a 20% down payment, a mortgage rate of 4.5%, and a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage. Detroit was Zoocasa’s affordable city, where 80% of potential buyers could afford a median-priced home. A median-priced home of $85,000 could be purchased with an income of $14,772 in Detroit. Similarly, 80% of potential buyers could afford a median-priced home in Oklahoma City. the city’s median $170,000 home could be purchased with a $29,544 income.Many of the least affordable cities were in California. San Francisco was the least affordable city in the country, with just 20% of potential buyers able to afford a home at the city’s median home price of $1,418,500, which requires buyers to have an income of $246,432 to buy a home. In San Jose, buyers would need an income of $177,204 to buy a $1,020,000 median priced home, and in Los Angeles they would need to earn $147,672 to buy a median priced home of $850,000.In San Francisco, Stanford University and Google are taking some actions to combat affordability issues. Stanford University has offered to invest $3.4 billion in housing development in Santa Clara County. The offer includes 2,172 workforce housing units, including 575 front-loaded Below Market Rate housing units, developed concurrently with a 1.2 percent annual growth rate of its academic facilities over roughly two decades. Stanford’s offer comes on the heels of Google’s announcement that it will spend $1 billion on efforts aimed at increasing affordable housing in the San Francisco Bay area. Part of the plan is to utilize some of Google’s land.The Bay Area is one of the most expensive areas in the country. Despite a 39% increase in inventory and an ongoing increase in affordability within the San Francisco Bay area, many homeowners and potential homeowners are still finding the area unaffordable.

Why Wall Street Is Critical to GSE Reform

Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. With Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on the path to being put back into private hands, The Wall Street Journal reports that funding from Wall Street investors will be necessary to lay down the groundwork.According to WSJ, executives at Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase JPM & Co. and Morgan Stanley have talked with the Treasury Department and Fannie and Freddie’s regulator about how a capital raise could work. However, the question of how much capital that needs to be raised is still a question. THe GSEs may need to raise billions of dollars from investors, and there are currently no indications the government has begun a formal process for hiring banks on a capital raise, though several banks, including Bank of America, Citigroup and Goldman, have begun preparing internally to win a role.According to Federal Housing Finance Director Mark Calabria at the the Eighth Annual AEI-CRN Housing Conference, regulators have “more than doubled” the GSE’s capital.“I can’t promise that we can keep that pace up, but we are headed in the right direction.”Speaking about conservatorship, Calbria stated that he “never thought [he] would see a conservatorship longer than six months.”“I have a responsibility to fix them and get them out,” he added.The GSE’s took an important step toward privatization when the U.S. Department of the Treasury  and the FHFA recently announced that they had agreed to modifications to the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements (PSPAs), permitting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to retain additional earnings in excess of the $3 billion capital reserves currently permitted by their PSPAs.These modifications are an important step toward implementing Treasury’s recommended reforms that will define a limited role for the Federal Government in the housing finance system and protect taxpayers against future bailouts,” said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.

Last week, rates were at the 2.96% mark, and a year ago at this time, the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.28%.“Since the most recent peak in April, mortgage rates have declined nearly a quarter of a percent and have remained under 3% for the past month,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. “Low rates offer homeowners an opportunity to lower their monthly payment by refinancing and our most recent research shows that many borrowers, especially Black and Hispanic borrowers, who could benefit from refinancing still aren’t pursuing the option.”According to the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), the refi share of activity increased to 61.3% of total mortgage applications, up from 61% the previous week. That marked a 3% week-over-week rise in refis, but 12% lower than the same week one year ago.Freddie Mac also reported that the 15-year FRM averaged 2.26%, with an average 0.6 point, down from last week when it averaged 2.30%. A year ago at this time, the 15-year FRM averaged 2.72%. The five-year Treasury-indexed hybrid adjustable-rate mortgage (ARM) averaged 2.59%, with an average 0.3 point, down from last week when it averaged 2.70%. A year ago at this time, the five-year ARM averaged 3.18%.“Additionally, the low mortgage rate environment has been a boon to the housing market, but may not last long as consumer inflation has accelerated at its fastest pace in more than 12 years and may lead to higher mortgage rates in the summer,” said Khater.The uptick on consumer sentiment can be attributed to a dip in unemployment claims, as the U.S. Department of Labor reported that initial unemployment claims for the week dropped to 473,000, a decrease of 34,000 over last week’s level, marking the lowest level for initial claims since March 14, 2020 when it was 256,000.“The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the American economy added 266,000 jobs in the month of April, and the unemployment rate was 6.1%, up marginally from 6.0% in March,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor Marty Walsh. “Labor force participation is at its highest point since last August and the number of people expressing hesitancy about returning to work due to the coronavirus is at its lowest point in the pandemic. These figures underscore how the American Rescue Plan puts us on the path to recovery. It’s increased the speed and access of vaccinations, it’s bringing needed relief to families, it’s enabling daycare centers and schools to reopen, and it’s supporting small businesses.
