First-Time Buyers Are Coming Back! (Gradually…)

One of the most perplexing aspects of the new housing market is the outlook for entry-level new home demand. Most builders have given up on serving the entry-level niche because it is so difficult to build profitably in a price range that is attainable for people who are in the middle class (or even upper-middle). The unanswered question is: will this segment ever come back, and if so, to what degree, and when?

A key group that has been conspicuously absent from the entry level housing market is Generation Y. There is general agreement that there are millions of pent-up households, because so many Millennials are living with their parents, and delaying getting married and starting their own families. The question is whether it is a delay, or a cancellation. I believe the answer is: both. There are Gen Yers who will get married, but in their 30s instead of in their 20s, some of whom have deferred having children, and others of whom will choose never to have children. My analysis suggests that the deferrals will outnumber the cancellations, and that the implication is that the pent-up demand is real, and will emerge gradually over the next several years. We are already starting to see marriage rates rising (slightly) and births are rising as well.

New data from the Census Bureau suggests that the household formation rate, which had been running at extremely low levels close to 500,000 a year (a direct effect of the doubling-up, not only with parents, but with roommates), has risen to 1.4 million per year. There is also confounding evidence suggesting that the majority of the increase in household formations has NOT consisted of Millennials. Surprisingly, it appears that BOOMERS have accounted for most of the increase, partly due to a rebound from unusually low divorce rates (unhappy couples stayed together longer for economic reasons when the economy was weak), but more because population growth is fastest in the 55+ age cohort, and that age cohort has smaller households on average.

One more factor: attitudes among twenty-somethings regarding home ownership versus rental living are vastly different than they were in previous generations. The question in this instance is: is this changing now that more Millennials are getting married, and/or, will it change in the future? There certainly are logical reasons why young parents would want to live in the suburbs, namely: higher-quality public schools than in the urban areas, a greater sense of safety, and more open space. Attitudes appear to be shifting already. Data on new-home purchase money mortgages confirm that first-time homebuyers are re-entering the market. Data from AEI and Barclays Research shows that first-time home buyer loans are up 17% year-over-year based upon the last twelve months ending in November 2015. The data show a steady upward climb in these loans throughout all of 2015 after having been completely flat in 2014.

Confirmation can also be found by simply taking note of the success of DR Hortons Express Homes brand, which has gone from being 10% of the parent companys unit sales one year ago to 20% today.
LGI Homes is hitting the highest level of sales in its history. Both of these builders target the needs of the entry level buyer, and offer homes that many of them can afford.
KB Home and Meritage have established a good track record in this arena as well. Recent shifts have also inspired builders such as
Taylor Morrison Home Corp. and Tri Pointe Homes to test offerings that are priced lower than they typically have built.

The re-entry of the entry-level buyer has begun, but this groups next moves will be gradual. Income challenges remain, and there are still relatively few new home developments who target this group.

As we watch this trend unfold, we should bear one thing in mind: entry-level no longer equates to first-time. First-time home buyers generally lack the income or the savings needed to buy a new home, so the resale market is their best bet, particularly since the spread between resale homes and new homes is now as high as 30% in many markets. Once they have bought a starter home and traded up out of that one into a larger (used) home, many of them will have developed sufficient equity to buy one of the lower-priced new homes.

Mortgage Risk Index (NMRI) Gained on Year-Over-Year Basis Since January 2014

The composite National Mortgage Risk Index (NMRI) for Agency purchase loans stood at 12.09% in July, continuing the composites trend of year-over-year increases since January 2014. The NMRI, which is conducted by AEI’s International Center on Housing Risk and gauges the degree of risk in the post-sub-prime housing market, ticked down 0.2 percentage point from the average for the prior three months. However, it is up 0.6 percentage point from a year earlier.

Perhaps even more concerning is that agency loan originations continued to migrate from large banks to nonbanks in July. This shift in market share has accounted for much of the upward trend in the composite NMRI, as nonbank lending is substantially riskier than the large bank business it replaces. Considering the composites results, the surveys directors say home price data should be analyzed in context. The SP/Case Shiller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas in June gained 5.0% on a year-over-year basis, slightly quicker than the 4.9% rate in May.

Historically low mortgage rates, an improving labor market, and loose credit standards especially for first time buyers, combined with a 35-month-long seller’s market for existing homes, continue to drive up home prices faster than income growth, said Edward Pinto, c-odirector of AEI’s International Center on Housing Risk. Increasing leverage in a sellers market is pushing up real home prices (now 12.5 percent above the trough reached in 2012:Q2) moving the goal post further away for many aspiring low- and middle-income homebuyers.

The NMRI results are based on nearly the universe of home purchase loans with a government guarantee and, in the month of July, the composite data included 264,000 such purchase loans, up 12% from a year earlier. With the addition of these loans, the total number of loans that have been risk rated in the NMRI since November 2012 increased to 6.7 million.

FHA’s premium cut does not appear to have achieved its goal of increasing access to homeownership, said Stephen Oliner, codirector of AEI’s International Center on Housing Risk. Rather, FHA largely has stolen business from other government agencies and has enabled borrowers to buy more expensive homes.

Other notable takeaways from the July NMRI include the following:

o The NMRI for first-time buyers hit 15.40%, up 0.9 percentage point from a year earlier, and well above the Repeat Buyer NMRI of 9.68%.

o The Spring homebuying season has been very strong, buoyed by robust first-time buyer volume driven by an improving job market and increasing leverage.

o About 140,000 purchase loans for first-time buyers were added in July, up almost 16% from a
year earlier, bringing the total number of first-time home buyer loans in the NMRI to 3.0 million
(April 2013 – July 2015).

o A non-stop seller’s market since September 2012 has been fueled by historically low mortgage rates and high, growing leverage. As a result, real home prices have been increasing since 2012:Q3, far outstripping income growth and crimping affordability.

o Credit standards for first-time home buyers are not tight.

o In July, 71% had down payments of 5% or less, 25% had DTIs greater than the QM limit of
43%, and the median FICO score was 709, a bit below the median for all individuals in the
US

o 20.7% of first-time buyers in July had subprime credit (a FICO score below 660), up from
18.9% in July 2014

o The reduction in FHA’s mortgage insurance premium cut has boosted its market share to 29.1% in July from 23.7% in July 2014.

o This increase has come at the expense of its most direct competitors: Fannie Mae (July
market share at 33.5% down from 36.7% in July 2014) and the Rural Housing Service (July
market share at 3.3% down from 5.1% in July 2014).

o Riskier FHA loans have been used to purchase higher priced homes.

o The collapse in large-bank market share continued in July, offset by nonbanks, which have a much higher MRI.

National mortgage risk index up slightly in July

RI Housing Forced To Layoff 30 Employees

The state agency charged with helping people buy affordable homes is facing a financial crisis of its own.  Rhode Island Housing is laying off 30 people; 15 percent of its workforce.

Rhode Island Housing director Richard Godfrey says the reasons are twofold. There’s been a cutback in federal support and many of the 12,000 mortgages they have outstanding are delinquent.

Right now we have about 12,000 outstanding first time home buyer loans. About seven percent of them are in default. So that’s about 840 households, said Godfrey.  Even when those folks don’t make their payments to us we still make our payments to our bondholders. So that has created a cash flow shortage which means we have less money to employ the people to do our work.

Rhode Island Housing was founded 40 years ago. It has provided funds to help over 60,000 Rhode Islanders buy their first home and each year provides oversight over 25,000 affordable apartments.
