Report Says More Millennials Value Homeownership Over Conveniences

first_imgReport Says More Millennials Value Homeownership Over Conveniences July 14, 2015 1,800 Views Homeownership Millennials The Collingwood Group 2015-07-14 Seth Welborn in Daily Dose, Data, Newscenter_img More millennials are valuing homeownership these days and trying harder to gather the funds to buy a home of their own, as a recent survey conducted by Washington, D.C.-based business advisory firm the Collingwood Group indicated.The survey, released Tuesday, showed that 65 percent of people polled between the ages of 24 and 34 were willing to forego modern conveniences in order to save for a down payment to purchase a home. Those conveniences might include cell phones, Internet, cable TV, and Starbucks, according to the Collingwood Group’s exclusive survey.About 75 percent of millennials, commonly known as generation Y, would rather apply for a mortgage loan with a traditional bank as opposed to an alternative lender or nonbank institution, according to the survey, indicating that millennials think more like their parents when it comes to obtaining financing for a first home. About 68 percent of those ages 35 to 75 said they prefer a traditional bank to handle their mortgage loan.The survey also found that millennials were not willing to pay more for a streamlined mortgage process online despite the generation’s focus on the Internet. About 21 percent of millennials polled said they would be willing to pay slightly more for a mortgage “if the application process was completely online and streamlined versus more offline and paper-based” as opposed to 24 percent of people ages 35 to 75 who said they would pay more.”The data on millennials that own their home who would pay more for a better process is also notable. On the most expensive purchase of their lives they are willing to pay more because the current process is so God awful,” Collingwood Group Chairman Tim Rood said. “Price matters to millennials who have lower incomes and more debt and the mortgage industry MUST figure out ways to become more efficient and streamline operations to reduce costs. The whole process is clearly ripe for disruption.”The survey called into question the perception that millennials prefer the city; about 70 percent of those polled said they prefer to buy their first home in the suburbs.”It’s fascinating that millennials want to live in the city while they’re single but want the American Dream of white picket fences and yards when they are ready to buy, according to our exclusive poll,” Rood said. “That is so critical given the ambiguity and fear that millennials will get hooked on urban conveniences and abandon the suburbs, leaving baby boomers and other downsizing households in the lurch.”Click here to download an infographic that includes the full results of the survey; the Collingwood Group polled a random group of 650 people between the dates of July 5 through 8, 2015, to obtain the survey results.

Refinances Could Be Poised for a Major Upswing

first_imgRefinances Could Be Poised for a Major Upswing March 7, 2016 733 Views Refinances could soon be on the rise, if data from the Black Knight Financial Services Mortgage Monitor for January 2016 is correct.According to the report, the number of borrowers who could both qualify and benefit from a refinance increased by a whopping 1.5 million—all since Jan. 1 of this year. This significant jump can mostly be attributed to the recent drop in interest rates, said Ben Graboske, data & analytics senior vice president at Black Knight.“When Black Knight last looked at the refinanceable population just two months ago, there were 5.2 million potential candidates, and that number was on the decline,” Graboske said. “That analysis was shortly after the Federal Reserve raised its target rate by 25 basis points, at which time the prevailing wisdom was that mortgage interest rates would rise in response.”Rates didn’t rise, however.“Global economic shocks then sent investors looking for the safety of U.S. Treasuries, driving down yields on benchmark 10-year bonds,” Graboske said. “Mortgage interest rates began to fall in defiance of prevailing wisdom, and the refinanceable popular great by 30 percent in the first six weeks of 2016.”In total, the report shows there are now 6.7 million borrowers who could qualify for a refinance and save an average of $3,000 per year. Broken down, 3.3 million of those borrowers could expect to save $200 or more per month, and another million could save as much as $400 or more per month.“All totaled, potential savings in the market has swelled from $1.28 billion to $1.68 billion per month, or about $20 billion per year,” Graboske said.In the report, a Black Knight example scenario depicts an even bigger increase in potential refinancees should interest rates continue to fall. If rates jump another 15 basis points—down to 3.5 percent—then the potential refinance population grows to 8.8 million, the largest number since 2012-2013. If rates rise, however, the report shows potential refinances will drop significantly.Prepayment rates hit a two-year low in January, and while they haven’t yet indicated refinance activity is on the horizon, the report predicts an increase as 2016 continues.“Given that refinance originations fell by 27 percent from Q1 to Q4 2015, and prepayment rates—historically a good indicator of refinance activity—hit their lowest levels in two years in January,” Graboske said, “this expansion of potential candidates could very well provide a welcome and unexpected lift to the market as we move forward in 2016.”Click here to view the entire Mortgage Monitor.

region The ex-militants in their hundreds had arrived the fourth entry point of NASS as early as 630am chanting war songs displaying placards with various inscription This action was however in the full glare of the Nigeria Police backed by men of NSCDC and plain clothed officers of Department of State Security DSS The aggrieved ex-militants under the aegis of Niger Delta Freedom Fighters also barricaded the main gate to NASS Apparently unaware that the Federal Lawmakers are currently on Easter recess the placard carrying ex-militants led by ‘General’ Para Ekiyes threatened to return to the creeks to resume hostilities if the Federal Government failed to accede to their demand Ekiyes also known as ‘General Gun Boat’ said the group wanted the Federal Government to facilitate the immediate actualization of the third phase of the amnesty programme Lamenting their ordeal and what he called cavalier activities of members of the Task Force since the commencement of the phased programme under the supervision of Kingsley Kuku Ekiyes said the group was disarmed in 2011 and had since been waiting to no avail He said: “The Task Force on third phase amnesty has commenced work in Delta State since February 3 2013 but none of us has been invited The officials have refused to invite the group to participate and partake in the presidential amnesty programme” Ekiyes noted that the third phase of the programme had made provisions to accommodate only 3642 of about 5600-strong ex militants belonging to the Niger Delta Freedom Fighters yet none of them had been invited He said: “If the Federal Government fails to accede to our demand I and my men will go back to the creeks The Nigerian government knows what the Niger Delta youth can do The government knows what was happening before

Arvinder Singh Lovely joined the saffron party Maken who has been attacked by a section of senior leaders of Delhi Congress over ticket distribution for MCD polls said it was "sad" that people were ready to give preference to "lust for power" over political ideology "BJP is geared to lure Congress leaders using intimidation and greed to make them join the party It raises a question whether ideology or lust for power will decide the kind of politics we pursue" he said at an election rally in Peeragarhi DPCC chief Ajay Maken Reuters Without naming Lovely Maken said he got "everything" from the Congress and yet was lured by the BJP for his "lust for power" "There are several Congress leaders who got everything from Congress One such leader who was made a minister even after becoming first-time MLA and remained minister for 10 years in a row who was made Delhi president today joined BJP" he said Maken asserted that Congress led by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi held on to its ideology whether it was in power or not "One day you are a worker and then you become a leader I am on this post (president of Delhi Congress) but I will not remain here forever but we will never change our ideology" he said Lovely on Tuesday hit out at Maken after joining BJP saying that he was "foisted" on Delhi Congress despite losing heavily and even losing his deposit in the 2015 Assembly

storm surges and dangerous waves as schools government offices and businesses closed and residents stocked up on supplies Packing sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour (215 km per hour) Lane could dump 10 to 20 inches (25-50 cm) of rain triggering flash floods and landslides the National Weather Service (NWS) said More than 30 inches could fall in some places it said "Preparations to protect life and property should be rushed to completion" the NWS Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu said in an advisory As of early Thursday Lane was centred about 205 miles (330 km) south-southwest of Kailua-Kona a town on the west coast of the Big Island the NWS said Moving northwest at 7 mph (11 kph) it was classified as a powerful Category 4 storm on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane strength The NWS said excessive rainfall would affect the Hawaiian Islands into the weekend "leading to significant and life-threatening flash flooding and landslides" More than a foot of rain has already fallen on part of the Big Island the NWS said on Thursday The centre also warned of "very large and damaging surf" along exposed west- and south-facing shorelines likely leading to significant coastal erosion A hurricane warning was in effect for Oahu Maui County and Hawaii County The islands of Kauai and Niihau remained on hurricane watch and could face similar conditions starting Friday morning Governor David Ige has urged residents to take the threat seriously and prepare for the worst by setting aside a 14-day supply of water food and medicines All public schools University of Hawaii campuses and nonessential government offices on the islands of Oahu and Kauai will be closed for at least two days starting on Thursday Ige said Wednesday The shelves of a downtown Honolulu Walmart were stripped of items ranging from canned tuna to dog food as well as bottled water and coolers full of ice after warnings of possible power outages "I went to Safeway last night for regular groceries Everyone was in a panic" said Thao Nguyen 35 an employee at a Honolulu branch of Hawaiian shirt retailer Roberta Oaks Long lines of cars formed at gasoline stations in Honolulu and people pulled small boats from the water ahead of the expected storm surge US Navy ships and submarines based in Hawaii were instructed to leave port a common practice when a hurricane approaches to avoid damage President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for Hawaii and ordered federal authorities to help supplement state and local responses the White House said on Thursday Since Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico last year the Federal Emergency Management Agency has made changes to how it works FEMA Administrator Brock Long said on Thursday One key change is making sure that generators are in place so they can immediately provide power to residents and quickly restart the water system Long told a briefing in Washington "It’s not just providing food and water If you fix the power first you solve 90 percent of the problems" Long said adding that FEMA was focused on food and shelter health and medical power and fuel communications transport and hazardous waste "We’re reorganizing the fire power of the federal government under these critical life lines and we’re pushing forward" he said The most powerful hurricane on record to hit Hawaii was Category 4 Iniki which made landfall on Kauai island on Sept 11 1992 according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration It killed six people and damaged or

AlanaAbramson@timecomFor most Russians indeed nearly all of them the crisis in Ukraine has had a distant almost virtual quality It has been something they watched on TV or debated in their kitchens rooting for the pro-Russian rebel militias and cursing the Ukrainian government as though the war between them was hardly more than a gruesome sporting match The emotions were visceral but the suffering wasnt personal Only in the past few weeks has the crisis begun to hit home Russians have started asking themselves or rather they have been forced to ask themselves whether they are prepared to make real sacrifices for the sake of their countrys policy in Ukraine So far of course they have not had much choice in the matter Russian President Vladimir Putin did not hold a plebiscite in Russia before deciding in March to annex the region of Crimea from Ukraine Nor did he ask the publics opinion before imposing a ban on Western food imports on Aug 6 to punish the countries that have sanctioned Russia in response to the Crimean land grab The food ban was simply imposed by a Kremlin decree “to protect Russia’s security” and the predictable result was a run on supermarkets in Moscow and other cities a spike in prices and panic buying in the dairy aisle It was not the first measure to test the publics patience on Ukraine Desperate for cash to develop Crimea the Russian government has dipped into the national pension fund essentially deciding to confiscate everything its citizens will contribute to it this year and the next "No one has any intention of giving this money back because this money has gone to Crimea" said Finance Minister Anton Siluanov (His deputy was promptly fired when he confessed on Facebook that he "feels ashamed" for the expropriation on Aug 5) Then there were those hapless Russian travelers roughly 27000 of them who were stranded in airport terminals in early August after a Russian tour operator folded under the weight of Western sanctions "We worry that this is only the beginning and that there will be a domino effect" said a spokesman for Russias Federal Tourism Agency Indeed there is likely to be As the sanctions war escalates it will continue to eat away at Russias economic growth and ordinary Russians will be forced to confront the question of whether they are prepared to pay for Putin’s foreign adventurism In such a scenario Lev Gudkov one of Russias leading sociologists and director of the Levada Center an independent pollster believes that they are unlikely to fall in line behind their leader "Its one thing to express support" he says "but quite another to suffer for it" Expressions of support for Putin have lately been almost unanimous In Levadas surveys since the crisis began in March his approval ratings shot up more than 20 percentage points to reach an overwhelming 87% at the end of last month But that phenomenon has a flip side Just as Russians applaud Putin for every perceived success in Ukraine they are likely to fault him for every repercussion Two-thirds of the population says Gudkov place all responsibility for the crisis squarely on Putin and his inner circle rather than on themselves Only 7% to 12% are prepared to make personal sacrifices for the sake of Russias policies in Ukraine he says "The rest take a characteristic position: Leave me out of it" But short of emigrating Russians can’t opt out They will all have to deal with the fact that inflation is due to reach up to 9% this year while the Finance Ministry has proposed a new sales tax of 3% to plug holes in the federal budget that have largely resulted from the crisis in Ukraine Diabetics in Russia are having to stock up on insulin just in case it winds up on the import ban as well People with special diets including professional athletes are scrambling to find Russian alternatives to the Western foods they need "Nobody wants prices to rise" said Arkady Dvorkovich the governments chief economic adviser in trying to calm the public during a television appearance on Aug 13 "Nobody wants hoarding Nobody wants deficits" Yet that is what Russians can expect and the task of making them accept this reality and even embrace it has fallen to the Kremlins propaganda outlets and they have dusted off the Cold War creeds of self-sufficiency in trying to lift the nation’s spirits One of the more typical examples of the genre was published in Komsomolskaya Pravda Russias most popular newspaper on Aug 3 a few days before Putin imposed the ban on Western food Under the headline "Hard Times Await" the piece lashed out at fast-food chains like McDonalds and waxed nostalgic for the Soviet treats that Russians remember from childhood "When the Iron Curtain fell meat patties on round buns seemed to us like symbols of freedom" wrote the author Ulyana Skoibeda "Now our national leader [Putin] has declared that Ossetian pastries and Tatar pies can compete with American hamburgers It is a total reorientation From looking outward we turn in from the West into ourselves" All of this she argued should come naturally to Russians as though they are just lapsed believers being shepherded back to their traditional faith But the author (perhaps because she was about 14 years old when the Iron Curtain fell) neglects to mention how tight the cuffs of isolation were back then and what a relief it was when they came off Even the Soviet elites had trouble believing the extent to which theyd been deprived In the fall of 1989 two years before he was elected post-Soviet Russia’s first President Boris Yeltsin took a tour of an American supermarket for the first time in his life It was a typical franchise of the Randalls grocery chain in Houston the sort of place where workaday Texans did their weekly shopping But as Yeltsins adviser Lev Sukhanov later recalled with almost childlike wonder in his memoirs "it felt like we were standing right in the middle of a kaleidoscope" Yeltsin had never seen anything in Moscow not even at the exclusive shops reserved for the chiefs of the Communist Party that could compare to the gastronomical wonderland he found inside that Randalls store "The gleaming radishes the size of plump potatoes" Sukhanov recounted "the pineapples the bananas" There were some 30000 items on the shelves including more types of sausage than the Kremlin delegates could count "The eye could not enumerate all the different kinds of candy and cakes could not process the variety of their colors their delicious attractiveness" Sukhanov wrote "It came as a deep shock" Later that day as they flew from Houston to Miami to continue their official visit as members of the Soviet legislature Sukhanov remembers Yeltsin sitting with his head in his hands When he finally came out of his stupor according to the memoirs he said "What have we brought our poor people to All our lives weve been telling them fairy tales All our lives weve been inventing But the world had already invented everything long ago" Almost exactly 15 years after Yeltsin handed power over to Putin the old fairy tales of Soviet dogma are being revived Having gathered the entire Russian legislature in Crimea on Aug 14 Putin told them in a speech that the ban on Western food was just a means of "supporting the product manufacturers of the fatherland" That has been a favorite talking point on Kremlin news outlets lately In calling for Russians to embrace a patriotic diet they have claimed that the domestic food industry has "the chance of a lifetime" to replace Western imports which are in any case unhealthy and not all that good But even some of Putins own spin doctors have had trouble sticking to that line During a radio program on a Kremlin-owned station on Aug 10 the host went on a half-hour rant about the "stupidity" of trying to replace Western goods with Russian ones "Its all a catastrophe" said Vladimir Solovyov one of the most popular television personalities in Russia and usually one of the Kremlin’s favorite messengers "What are we going to do replace honey with crap That doesnt mean the crap will taste like honey … Dont lie to yourself" His co-host growing nervous as the live broadcast continued tried weakly to convince him that Russia would manage just as it did in the Soviet Union Solovyov persisted: "I want to make my own choices and not to have the state choose for me" he said "I want the right to choose for myself what wine I drink and if Im told that I dont have this right then I want to be convinced that Im accepting these discomforts for a good cause" But is the conflict in Ukraine a good enough cause Is it worth having to part with the comforts that Russians now take for grant To give up the "kaleidoscope" of Western produce now available in Russian supermarkets These are not easy questions and it will be a lot harder to answer them with a resounding yes than it was to support the swift and easy annexation of Crimea And as the consequences of that decision unfold they will begin to weigh on Putins sky-high popularity Gudkov the sociologist expects the President’s ratings to sink by November back to what they were before the annexation of Crimea But that does not mean Putin will change course "Nobody supported the Soviet policy of isolation either" says Gudkov "It was very painful for people that feeling of slouching toward a dead end But nobody asked the publics opinion whether they wanted this or not" They simply had to pay the price for their leaders decisions Then as now nobody gave them much of a choice
