This marked the first time since March 2020 when the national delinquency rate dipped below the 6% mark.Recovery continues to crawl, but remains steady, as nearly 2.1 million U.S. homeowners remain 90 or more days past due, but not yet in foreclosure–1.7 million homeowners more than at the same time last year or five times pre-pandemic levels.In an effort to ‘deliver immediate relief’ to homeowners during a national health crisis, President Joe Biden extended the national moratorium on home foreclosures for federally-backed mortgages through the end of June 2021. It was previously set to expire March 31, 2021.Black Knight also found that foreclosure starts were down 86% year-over-year in January, with sales activity down more than 95%.And while government intervention has reduced near-term risk, such actions will likely offset recovery times and extend the length of the housing recovery period. At the current rate of improvement, approximately 1.8 million U.S. mortgages will still be seriously delinquent at the end of June when foreclosure moratoriums on government-backed loans are currently slated to lift.Also in January, Black Knight found that prepayment activity fell by 17% from December 2020, but was still more than 85% higher than it was at the same time last year.Recent rate increases may further impact prepay rates, as last week, Freddie Mac’s latest Primary Mortgage Market Survey (PMMS) showed the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) hitting the 2.81% mark, up 0.08% over the previous week.

first_img The nine-year-old has been off the track since finishing second at Auteuil in June but had been due to make his reappearance at Leopardstown on Saturday. A late setback prevented him from taking his chance in the Christmas Hurdle, with Byrnes to reassess his condition later in the week. Press Association Trainer Charles Byrnes still hopes to get a run into Solwhit before the planned defence of his Ladbrokes World Hurdle title at the Cheltenham Festival in March.center_img “He has bit of problem with a fetlock and we will see how he is at the end of the week, but I’m not too concerned at the moment,” said the County Limerick-based handler. “I’d hope we will get a run into him before Cheltenham.” last_img read more

first_imgBy Chris WilliamsSHAKUR Stevenson has only held the WBO featherweight title for five months, and already his promoter Bob Arum is calling the three-year pro the next Floyd Mayweather Jr. The 2016 Olympic silver medalist Stevenson (13-0, 7 KOs) was supposed to have defended his WBO 126-lb title last Saturday night against Miguel Marriaga on ESPN at Madison Square Garden in New York, but the fight was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.Arum is pushing hard to make the 22-year-old Stevenson into a big name as fast as possible, but it’s not easy with the COVID 19 pandemic putting a clamp on his fight cards. Top Rank Boxing had to cancel their March 14th and March 17th cards because of the coronavirus crisis.Arum still wanted to go ahead with the cards behind closed doors without fans attending, but the inability to test the fights due to testing kits not being available foiled the plans to have the fights to go ahead. “He’s the second coming of Floyd Mayweather,” Arum said to ESPN.com. “Shakur is tremendously confident in his abilities, just like Floyd. He is a super defensive fighter, just like Floyd. And he is like a genius in the ring, the way Floyd was.”Stevenson doesn’t fight anything like Mayweather, and he doesn’t possess the hand speed that he once had. When Floyd was 22, he was beating the likes of Justin Juuko, Carlos Rios and Carlos Gerena. Mayweather looked a lot more polished and considerably quicker than Stevenson. Personally, I think it’s a bad comparison on Arum’s part. However, Arum has been comparing Terence Crawford with a young Sugar Ray Leonard, and that makes no sense either. Crawford fights nothing as Leonard did.For Stevenson to become popular as Mayweather did, Arum is going to need to keep him busy and upgrade on the level of competition he’s facing. Putting Stevenson in with Marriaga is a waste of time if the objective is to turn him into a star. Marriaga (29-3, 25 KOs) has already been beaten by Nicholas Walters, Oscar Valdez and Vasiliy Lomachenko.When the green light is given for fight cards to commence again after the coronavirus problem goes away, then Arum should look to put Stevenson in with talented fighters.Guys Stevenson needs to fight to take his career to the next level.
