When Will Distressed Sales ‘Normalize’?

first_img When Will Distressed Sales ‘Normalize’? With much of the talk surrounding the housing market centered on “normalization” or returning to its pre-crisis state, one metric which the market is watching is the distressed sales share—the share of REO and short sales that comprise total residential home sales.For February 2016, the distressed sales share declined by 2.9 percentage points over-the-year (and 0.4 percentage points over-the month) down to 11 percent, according to data released by CoreLogic on Thursday.At their peak in January 2009, distressed sales accounted for nearly one-third of all residential home sales (32.4 percent) but has been declining steadily since then. By comparison, the pre-crisis share of distressed sales was typically around 2 percent; CoreLogic estimates that if the current rate of year-over-year decline continues, the distressed sales share will reach the “normal” pre-crisis level in slightly more than two years.“Prior to the housing crash, the distressed share of total sales averaged about 2 percent,” CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft said. Rising home prices have bolstered borrowers mortgage equity, and has been a driver of the large decreases in distressed sales. “If the current housing and mortgage market trends continue, we would expect the distressed sales share to get to the pre-crash level by mid-2018.”February’s REO sales share of 7.8 percent was less than a third of what it was at its peak of 27.9 percent in January 2009. Like the overall distressed sales share, February’s REO sales share was down by 2.9 percentage points over-the-year and is the lowest share for any February since 2007.Meanwhile, the short sales share for February was 3.3 percent, and has remained in the 3 to 4 percent range since falling below 4 percent in mid-2014, according to CoreLogic.All but nine states recorded a year-over-year decline in distressed sales share in February 2016; the five states with the highest share were Maryland (19.9), Connecticut (19.1), Michigan (18), Florida (17.5), and Illinois (17.1) while North Dakota had the lowest distressed sales share at 2.5 percent. But for all the year-over-year declines, only North Dakota and the District of Columbia had a distressed sales share within one percentage point of their pre-crisis levels.California was the state that in February 2016 experienced the largest decline in distressed sales share from its peak. Since reaching a peak of 67.4 percent in January 2009, the distressed sales share in California has fallen by 59.8 percentage points.The five metros with the highest distressed sales share in February were Baltimore (19.8), Chicago (19.4), Tampa (19.1), Orlando (19.1) and Las Vegas (14.1).

Orji Okwonkwo:I will be a better player under Thierry Henry

first_img Okwonkwo, 22, joins from Italian side Bologna, after his eight goals in the 2019 season earned him Impact’s Most Valuable Player award. Despite reported interest from European clubs, he returns for his second spell with the club, managed by France and Arsenal legend Henry. “I’m looking forward to making a bigger impact when I wear the shirt again,” Okwonkwo, who has the option to join on a permanent deal, told BBC Sport. “I feel lucky to get a chance to work under a legend like [Thierry] Henry. I can learn important tips on how to be a better player from someone who has won the World Cup and achieved so much at club level as well. “You don’t get an opportunity like this all the time, I really plan to make the most of it. “I know a lot of the players and I am really excited about our prospects this season after missing out on the play-offs last season.” The 2015 Under-17 World Cup winner extended his deal with Bologna until June 2024 before returning to North America. Montreal failed to make the 2019 play-offs and parted company with coach Wilmer Cabrera when his contract ran out at the end of the campaign. But Okwonkwo’s agent Femi Olaniran believes the forward can achieve more success on his return to the club and grow under a new manager. “Henry played a big role in his decision to return to Impact Montreal and this is a legend of the game,” Olaniran told BBC Sport. “As a winger he managed eight goals last season but he can achieve more under the tutelage of this great forward. “Orji is young, eager to learn and could have gone elsewhere, but he is aware that he can continue to grow under one of the best strikers in world football.” Okwonkwo previously played in Italy between 2016 and 2019, scoring three goals in 27 Serie A matches with Bologna, including four starts. He joined the Italian club in 2016 from FC Abuja Academy in his native Nigeria spent the second half of the 2017-18 season on loan at Serie B side Brescia. At international level, Okwonkwo started three games for Nigeria at the 2019 Africa Under-23 Cup of Nations, scoring a goal against Zambia.

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones 89 c

first_imgGreen Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones (89) can’t make the catch as Arizona Cardinals cornerback Justin Bethel (28) defends during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made headlines earlier this week when he claimed all the pressure is on the Arizona Cardinals when the two teams meet in the NFC Divisional Playoffs Saturday night in Glendale.Maybe he believes it, maybe it’s a good player on an inferior team looking for some sort of psychological edge.The Cardinals smacked the Packers 38-8 in Week 16, and according to ESPN NFL insider John Clayton, the tape of that game doesn’t lie. Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Comments   Share   center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Clayton’s point is a valid one, and one that has affected the Packers all season. Green Bay averaged just 10.99 yards per completion which ranked 28th in the NFL. With a healthy Jordy Nelson, the Packers ranked second in the same category a year ago, averaging 12.74 yards per completion.Clayton believes this will be too much for Rodgers and Green Bay to overcome.“It’s not going to be the same blowout, but I can’t see this changing,” he said.Saturday’s game kicks off at 6:15 p.m. and can be heard on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. Extended pregame coverage begins at 11:00 a.m. Your browser does not support the audio element. LISTEN: John Clayton, ESPN NFL insider “This is kind of a discount reality double-check and (Rodgers) needs to look at the film of the last game,” Clayton told Doug and Wolf Friday morning on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Every time I saw a Packers receiver, I saw some cornerback from the Arizona Cardinals on his hip.“That’s because the Packers can’t run and the Cardinals can cover. What’s changed? What’s changed is that Davante Adams is now out and you have one less guy to get into the route. I don’t see much different.”Adams, a second-year wide receiver who had been making strides in recent weeks, injured his knee in the Packers’ 35-18 Wild Card win over the Washington Redskins and won’t play Saturday. Adams was Green Bay’s third-leading receiver this season with 50 catches for 483 yards and a touchdown.“You saw how slow those receivers are — the lack of separation. The only thing that Aaron Rodgers could do except for picking himself up after being sacked eight times, was maybe throw a back-shoulder throw to James Jones or to maybe try a little bit of a crossing route,” Clayton said.“The downfield routes are covered and I can’t imagine with a week where the Cardinals defenders have been able to rest, that they’re going to be able to slow down.”last_img read more
