The Mortgage Industry

Introduction

In the United States, the mortgage market has successfully and efficiently extended home buyer credit for generations. This business has enabled millions of families to achieve the American dream of owning their own home. The use of subprime mortgages contributed to record numbers of individuals or families with different levels of income, who were previously less than credit worthy now gained greater opportunities to buy a home. Unfortunately, the use of subprime mortgages, however well intentioned, went horribly wrong by practices of poor risk management, lax government oversight, and many assets that are funded by too low equity contributed by owners.
The recent financial crisis and the role of mortgage backed securities including allegations of fraudulent activities continue to threaten the company’s financial health through sub-prime related losses. “We believe that these lawsuits further increase the company’s litigation risk and also represent a threat to scathe the company’s financial health to some extent. However, if proved or settled, the investors can breathe some relief” Market Analysis The markets have been in decline for 3 years and there is a very significant challenge that the housing market is presenting to us. We may be on the verge of a double dip recession, the economy is weakening both here and abroad, and the housing market is a significant part of that. Because prices have gone so low, willingness to purchase homes has gotten so low, there are very few starts, very few permits, very low construction activity, resulting in putting people out of jobs and it looks like it may continue for the foreseeable future. “The drop in pending home sales is clearly disappointing,” said Pierre Ellis, an…...

Mortgage Options Analysis

...Mortgage Options Analysis Abstract You decided to buy a house in Amherst valued at $250,000 and need to borrow the entire amount to finance your house. After shopping around for a mortgage loan, you found that the following two deals from the Mortgage One Company are very attractive: Option 1: A 15-year fixed rate mortgage with no point and an APR of 5%, compounded monthly. Option 2: A 15-year fixed rate mortgage with two points and an APR of 4.5%, compounded monthly. The closing costs (not including the points) for the two loans are identical. According to the law, the interests on your mortgage payments are tax deductible. In fact, at the end of each year, your lender will simply add up your 12-month interest payments (without considering the time value of money) and forward the mortgage statement to you and the IRS for tax filing purposes. Then you file your tax form according to your income tax rate of 28%. Calculations The following assumptions were made for the calculations of mortgage amortization tables: * the amount of money needed to pay for points is available in your bank account; * Mortgage One Company does not allow you to build the point money into the mortgage; * the amount of total interest paid for year and the amount paid for points is tax deductible; * the standard tax deductions are zero, thus, you get tax savings for every dollar paid in interest and for points; * mortgage payments are at the end of each month and you......

Mortgage Market Analysis

...Government Regulation of the Mortgage Industry The residential mortgage industry has come under deep scrutiny after the market crash and recession that occurred in the United States from approximately 2007 through 2011. The causes of the market collapse however, started over a decade earlier. The development of new mortgage products and new methods in the way those mortgage products were invested, outpaced the regulatory standards the Federal government had previously established. Understanding the role of government previous to and post the mortgage industry collapse will be the focus of this market examination. The mortgage industry is regulated by several government intuitions and regulations. The regulations are split between the protection of the consumer in lending decisions and the regulation of the bank in the lending practices. The agencies that regulate the industry are the FDIC, FTC, CFPB, and the OCC. These agencies regulate and give oversight to the industry. The laws or acts that regulate the industry are mainly the TILA, ECOA, RESPA, Regulation Z, and the Patriot Act. The department of justice enforces all mortgage industry laws. The Original Market Failure The market prosperity of the 1990’s brought new investors and capital into the mortgage industry. Investors were ager to find new vehicles for investment and the banking industry saw an opportunity to expand the lending programs that were available to the residential lending market. A mortgage was......

Case 1: Capital Mortgage Insurance Company

...Case 1: Capital Mortgage Insurance Company Overview This case is set in the late 1970’s and describes an acquisition attempt by Capital Mortgage Insurance of Corporate Transfer Services. CMI is a company that sells mortgage insurance to mortgage lenders and banks but executives at CMI want to grow into the real estate relocation industry. Corporate Transfer Services assists employees who have been transferred to a new city as they try to find a new home. Capital Mortgage Insurance Corporations goal is to acquire Corporate Transfer Services at the lowest cost. The president and vice president of CMI met with the owners of CTS many times. If CMI acquires CTS, it will provide them with an easy way into the relocation industry and a high potential for profit. This makes the acquisition appealing to CMI, regardless of the fact that financially, CTS has been struggling to break even. Corporate Transfer Services wants to be acquired, but is worried about their ownership levels after the acquisition. Analysis Capital Mortgage Insurance Company’s main interest is to expand their financial services capabilities and build a strong network that can rival Merrill Lynch. Growing at a 10-15% annual rate, the corporate relocation business was a very appealing market. CMI has to protect their close relationship with MetroNet, with which Elliott Burr sat on the board. MetroNet proposed and approved the acquisition attempt of CTI. Preservation of good relationships with the......

Industry Analysis

...Team Industry Analysis Paper Overall snapshot of industry The pet care industry entails the comprehensive care of domestic animals. For example, when your pet fish needs food, a consumer purchases the fish flakes from a pet supply store. Another example of a segment in the market is a veterinarian. When your pet is sick, you take it to be treated. The overarching industry also includes buying pets. Since the pet care industry is very broad, and dominated by PetCo and PetSmart, we are focusing on the niche daycare (boarding) segment of the industry. The daycare industry focuses on providing supervision, companionship, and exercise services for a consumer's pet while away. In 2011, 63.2% of pet owners considered their pets to be family members according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.5 The demand for quality care of animals while the “parents” are away is incredibly high. The pet daycare industry provides the supervision and interaction that comforts pet-owners during either a long-term, short-term, or even daily stay. The main reasons pets are dropped off at a daycare are either due to vacations or daily jobs that take owners away from pets. Very often in this industry a pet daycare facility will offer other pet services such as grooming, pet food sales, and pet supply sales as add-ons to the primary service of boarding; however, this makes up a small percentage of total revenue. Industry specific statistics and details re: pet daycare and boarding ...

Moral Hazard and the Mortgage Industry

...Moral Hazard and the Mortgage Industry Moral hazard describes behavior when the party responsible for the interests of another party has an incentive to put its interests first (Dowd, 2009). The possibility of it increases when the party does not necessarily suffer the consequences of its actions and thus becomes susceptible to taking more risk because it knows it would be protected. An example of moral hazard is the subprime mortgage crisis, which preceded and “triggered” (Bernanke, 2012) the recent recession. To a great extent it was caused by excessive risk-taking by organizations “too big to fail”, meaning that “certain businesses are so important to an economy that disastrous consequences would result if they were allowed to fail” (Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City). Before technological improvements would make it “relatively easy and cheap” (Wright, 2013) to transform illiquid financial assets as loans and mortgages through securitization and to sell them to investors, banks would approve mortgages with a goal of holding them until maturity. They would be carefully screening out possible delinquents and would aim to minimize their own risk and a prospective subprime borrower would not be considered. According to Dowd (2009), this “incentive is seriously weakened” if the bank (or any other financial institution such as a mortgage broker) is only originating the loan and collecting fees for it. The inherited risks involved in such practice are considerably higher......

Moral Hazard and the Mortgage Industry

...Moral Hazard and the Mortgage Industry Would you be more willing to sky dive if you knew you were invincible? Of course you would, who wouldn’t take that amazing trip if you knew you would live to tell about it. When there is little risk or threat of recourse, most would be more willing to take great risks, for the thrill, the riches, or just because they can. These situations can describe the theory of moral hazards. A moral hazard can be described as, when people with insurance take greater risks than they would do without it, because they know they are protected (Kansas City Fed, n.d.). This is exactly what led to the reckless behaviors mortgage brokers and banks took when the housing market shifted, ultimately leading to a financial crisis. This paper will further explore how the mortgage industry increased the moral hazard that contributed to the subsequent financial crisis. During the very early 2000’s the housing market was at an all time high. There was a rapid increase in individuals purchasing homes and home ownership rates increased from 64% in 1994 to 69% in 2005 (Tseng, 2009). Unfortunately with this shift, bankers and mortgage brokers realized there was a great deal of money to be made, and they all wanted their share. This greed is what many believe led to the financial crisis that occurred toward the later part of the decade. With any supply and demand curve, as individuals demanded to purchase homes, home prices increased. Although typically this may......

The Problems with Foreclosures in the Mortgage Industry

...The Problems with Foreclosures in the Mortgage Industry I. How are Foreclosures Hurting the Economy? Everyone today is well aware of the issues brought on by the MBS and housing bubble of the late 2000’s and how it has affected the economy. The United States and majority of countries around the world have been brought into a crippling recession from which we are just now working ourselves out of (even though there are those who would argue we are not out of the woods just yet). But not everyone knows how these MBS work or what caused them to bring down the economy or who is to blame. The root of these issues comes from mortgages defaulting, which lowers the amount of cash coming into the MBS. MBS are hedged to cover the risk of default, but when a high enough percentage of mortgages in that particular security default, no amount of hedging can account for the drop in revenue streams. When coupled with the fact that housing prices dropped across the country, these securities were doomed to fail. There is plenty of blame to send around for the MBS crisis; the borrowers for agreeing to loans that they couldn’t keep up with, Loan Officers who put their clients in convoluted programs to make their qualifications get the best loan, Lenders who let these less than credit worthy loans go through their bank and sub sequentially selling them off as MBS, Investment firms who didn’t do their due diligence when compiling these loans into securities, Credit rating......

The Mortgage Industry in Kenya

...Mortgages A mortgage is a debt instrument that is secured by the collateral of specified real estate property and that the borrower is obliged to pay back with a predetermined set of payments. Mortgages are used by individuals and businesses to make large purchases of real estate without paying the entire value of the purchase up front. Mortgages in Kenya fall under two types, that is, a. Fixed rate mortgages The borrower will owe a percentage of the loan as interest. This amount never changes and remains constant over the life of the loan. b. Variable/Adjustable rate mortgages In this type of loan, changes in the credit market are reflected in the repayment rates. Equal repayments are made on a reducing balance. Part of the interest rate risk is transferred from the lender to the borrower. Variable rate mortgages are widely used where fixed rate funding is difficult to obtain or prohibitively expensive. There are several factors that broadly define the characteristics of mortgages in Kenya and elsewhere globally. These may include; * Interest – this is what banks gain from the loan from the repayments made. Interest may be fixed over the life of the loan or it may be variable, changing at certain predetermined periods. It may rise or it may fall, depending on existing market conditions. * Prepaid amounts – some lenders will limit or restrict prepayment of part or the entire loan. If the borrower decides to prepay, then he may also pay a penalty to the lender for the......
