Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Print This Post Colin Robins is the online editor for DSNews.com. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Texas A&M University and a Master of Arts from the University of Texas, Dallas. Additionally, he contributes to the MReport, DS News’ sister site. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released its April 2014 Housing Scorecard, noting that home prices remained stable, foreclosure completions continued to their lowest levels since mid-2007, existing home sales stabilized, new home sales slowed, and the administration’s foreclosure mitigation efforts continued to provide relief for troubled homeowners.The agency found that as of February 2014, the FHFA purchase-only house price index rose 6.9 percent year-over-year, and ticked up .6 percent from January, seasonally-adjusted. The seasonally adjusted purchase-only index for the U.S. found that home values are on par with prices from mid-2005.Foreclosure completions totaled approximately 29,000 in March, down 5 percent from February and down 34 percent from March 2013. The drop in foreclosures represented the lowest level seen since July 2007. Newly initiated foreclosures were roughly 55,700, up 7 percent from February.Regardless, foreclosure starts were still down 24 percent from last year.HUD found that existing-home sales stabilized in March, remaining virtually unchanged. Existing-home sales were below year-ago levels for the fifth consecutive month. The report from HUD cites a National Association of Realtors report that attributed the stagnation in sales to low inventory, fewer distressed properties, strict banking lending standards, less favorable affordability, and the unusually harsh winter.New home sales also experienced a slump, dropping 14.5 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 384,000 in March—an eight month low. “New home sales were down 13.3 percent from a year earlier, the first annual decline since the third quarter of 2011,” HUD found.The government’s loss mitigation programs provided a bright spot in HUD’s report. The government agency found that 2 million homeowner assistance actions have taken place through the Making Home Affordable Program, which included nearly 1.4 million permanent modifications through the Home Affordable Modification Program (HAMP).HUD found that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) has offered nearly 2.3 million loss mitigation and early delinquency interventions through March. Additionally, mortgage aid was extended 7.7 million times, outpacing foreclosures. Housing counselors also continued to provide assistance, counseling 10.3 million households since April 1, 2009.In total, more than 8.3 million mortgage modifications and other assistance arrangements were completed between April 2009 and the end of March 2014.HUD tempered its good news with a word of caution:”Encouraging news notwithstanding, there is a need to continue with recovery efforts as home sales have slowed, too many homeowners remain underwater, and mortgage delinquencies rates remain elevated. There is also considerable geographic variation in market conditions not captured in the national statistics, which suggests some markets are improving at different rates than others.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / HUD: Housing Improves; Still Needs Further Recovery Tagged with: April Housing Scorecard Existing Home Sales Foreclosures HAMP HUD New Home Sales Previous: Fannie/Freddie Reform Bill Stalls in Senate Next: GSE Quarterly Report Card Positive Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News Subscribe April Housing Scorecard Existing Home Sales Foreclosures HAMP HUD New Home Sales 2014-05-09 Colin Robins Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago May 9, 2014 794 Views HUD: Housing Improves; Still Needs Further Recovery Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Colin Robins Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles
St. Joseph County Prosecutors Office(SOUTH BEND, Ind.) — A 16-year-old Indiana high school football player arrested in the stabbing death of a classmate pregnant with his child pleaded not guilty to murder charges Tuesday.Aaron Trejo, 16, is charged as an adult in the killing of 17-year-old Breana Rouhselang, who was six months pregnant. Her body, stabbed multiple times, was found in a dumpster near her home in Mishawaka, Indiana.Trejo was arraigned Tuesday afternoon via video conference in St. Joseph County Superior Court in South Bend and pleaded not guilty to one count each of murder and feticide.Trejo listened calmly as a judge read the charges against him before asking him to enter his plea.The judge ordered that he be held in jail without bond pending a Dec. 19 hearing.Trejo allegedly admitted to investigators that he stabbed Rouhselang in the heart with a knife Saturday night after they argued over her pregnancy, according to a charging document.He allegedly told police that he went to Rouhselang’s house with a knife “because he thought it would kill Breana quickly,” according to the charging document.“I took action….I took her life,” Trejo allegedly told police, the affidavit states.Roushelang’s mother woke up around 1 a.m. Sunday and became concerned when she didn’t find her daughter at home, according to the court documents. She went to Trejo’s home several blocks from her house, but Trejo said he didn’t know of Breana’s whereabouts.The mother then called the police to report her daughter missing, police said.An autopsy determined that Breana died from multiple stab wounds and that she had been strangled with her own scarf.Trejo allegedly told detectives that he planned for a week to kill Breana because she had waited to tell him about her pregnancy until it was too late for her to get an abortion, according to the charging document.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
