What were the results of CoreLogic’s latest HPI? Is the government finally unveiling a plan for its REO inventory? And how many Keller Williams offices did Coldwell Banker acquire? Here’s a quick rundown of stats from this week’s news (Jan. 9 – Jan. 13) by the numbers:
20,000 – the amount of jobs that residential constructed added in 2011, after six years of negative job growth.
30 – the percentage of defaults in 2010 that were strategic, meaning the homeowner walked away from the property despite being able to pay the mortgage.
68 – the percentage of respondents in an NAHB survey who said they would be less inclined to vote for a presidential candidate that proposed cutting the mortgage interest tax deduction.
4 – the number of Keller Williams offices that Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage purchased in a just-announced acquisition.
250,000 – the estimated amount of REO properties the government currently owns; news leaked this week that the government is close to announcing a conversion program that would sell the properties to investors as rentals.
909,000 – the amount of mortgages that have been modified through the HAMP program since it launched in 2009; new projection suggest the program will miss its goal of 3-4 million modifications by a substantial amount.
1.4 – the percentage that home values fell from October to November, according to the latest Home Price Index from CoreLogic.
12 – the number of total forbearance months that can now be granted to unemployed borrowers with Freddie Mac mortgages.
