On an annual basis, January filings were down 18%, the 40th straight month of year-over-year declines.According to the company, last month’s elevated activity was driven by double-digit increases in both foreclosure starts and in scheduled foreclosure auctions. Starts in January totaled more than 57,000, up 10% from December, while auctions rose 13%.Another report from the inspector general for the Federal Housing Finance Agency says the agency hasn’t provided enough oversight of its Servicing Alignment Initiative for Fannie and Freddie. The SAI was launched in 2011 to improve servicers’ performance on GSE loans, but the inspector general’s examination of the program since then finds there has been little to no review of compliance or performance goals since that time. In a response, the FHFA indicated it plans to continue with its current oversight approach. in Featured, Media, Webcasts The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Related Articles Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agocenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Previous: Consumer Survey Reveals Positive Outlook for Coming Year Next: Fannie Mae Increases Incentives to Purchase REO Properties Is Rise in Forbearance Volume Cause for Concern? 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily February 14, 2014 528 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: DSNews Subscribelast_img read more
