Home equity lending is alive and well — and millennials are leading the pack

first_img 36SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jesse Rivera Jesse Rivera is responsible for the profitable growth of the company including strategic partnerships, business development, and account management while ensuring excellence in operational fulfillment of all functions performed by … Web: www.newvistasolutions.com Details Rising home values brought unexpected equity to homeowners in 2016, and they’re lining up in record numbers to reap the benefits. According to Black Knight Financial Services, there are 39.5 million homeowners with equity that is available for lending under current CLTV guidelines — representing $4.7 trillion. With interest rates on the rise, borrowers with low-interest mortgages are less likely to use refinancing as a means of tapping into equity, so an equity loan makes more sense. Ben Graboske, executive vice-president at Black Knight said, “The last time interest rates rose as much as they have over the past few months, we saw cash-out refinances decline by 50 percent.”Among those actively seeking equity funds are the Millennials (ages 18 – 34). According to the U.S. Census Bureau, this age group is 83 million strong and now represents one fourth of our nation’s population.Although Millennials are entering the housing market at a slower pace than past generations, they represented 61% of the nation’s first-time homebuyers in 2016, says the National Association of Realtors.What does this mean for home equity lenders?  A recent survey conducted by TD Bank revealed that more than a third of Millennials are considering applying for a home equity line of credit in the next 18 months. The number one reason is home remodeling.Some believe this younger generation is entitled and lacking in responsible values, but a CEB Study revealed a much different story. It appears most Millennials are very serious about their financial future and more fiscally conservative than the Gen-Xers and Baby Boomers. The 2009 recession, high student debt and a sluggish job market for new college grads have contributed to a more cautious mindset within this group.The other thing to know about Millennials — they’re tech savvy. They manage their lives through the efficient use of technology and they have little tolerance for old-school paper shuffling. The lender who can deliver a quick turn-around equity loan will have their allegiance.Automation is key to maintaining a competitive edge in this technology driven market. Lenders who need 45 days to close an equity loan will fall short of consumers’ expectations. Centralized platforms that provide accurate data and ensure compliance with federal and local lending regulations can drastically reduce costs and the time required to process a loan.last_img read more

The CUInsight Experience podcast: Jim Nussle – Full circle (#100)

first_imgThank you for tuning in to episode 100 of The CUInsight Experience podcast with your host, Randy Smith, co-founder of CUInsight.com. This episode is brought to you by Trellance – transforming data into actionable insight for credit unions from coast to coast.My guest on this 100th episode was also my guest on the very first episode of The CUInsight Experience Podcast, Jim Nussle, the President, and CEO of CUNA. I was looking forward to this conversation with Jim. We intentionally kept it broad in scope when talking about credit unions and focused on the future, what credit unions are doing well, where there is room for improvement, and what challenges we face over the next few years.Jim discusses what he sees on a national level in credit unions over the course of the pandemic and how he has grown as a leader during this time. He applauds the credit union movement for being “Financial First Responders” and consistently providing great service to members and support for each other. Jim also talks about what he believes credit unions need to change in order to enhance relevance in the future; leaning into what we do best.  A year from now, Jim will be most proud of how the movement navigates and effectively responds to the redefinition of community.Listen as Jim shares what inspired him to take the job as President & CEO of CUNA and how the inspiration has transformed over the years. “Listen, learn, help and lead,” is a phrase Jim’s team has heard him say often and he believes he’s always had the ability to make hard decisions, but he learns more every day. He talks about his prompt ability to pivot, like many leaders, and how that comes with being able to gather your team and adjust accordingly so that no one is left behind. Jim says that spending time with his family, his dog and playing guitar are some things that have kept him sane during the pandemic.As usual, we wrap up this 100th episode with rapid-fire questions and learn that Jim was involved in everything in high school and wanted to be a lawyer and a public servant when he grew up; both of which he has accomplished. Jim says that his dad is the picture of success, and spending time with his parents during this time has become one of his greatest pleasures.Subscribe on: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play, StitcherBooks mentioned on The CUInsight Experience podcast: Book List How to find Jim:Jim Nussle, The President and CEO of [email protected] | LinkedIn Show notes from this episode:A big shout-out to our friends at Trellance, an amazing sponsor of The CUInsight Experience podcast.

Yeah, it was great,” said Struff.“I played very aggressive in the tiebreaker and I was very happy after that one.” Busta’s match with Coric was the game of the tournament so far.The 21-year-old Croat, who beat Andy Murray last year at the Madrid Open, saved three match points to progress and afterwards described it as a “huge win”.“I think I played very good,” he told reporters.“I didn’t know what to expect, it’s the first match of the year, it’s always a little bit tricky.“But, I can say from the beginning that I was playing very good.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Louie Gonzales promoted to La Salle head coach Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ Do not bring these items in SEA Games venues Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic returns the ball to Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany during the first round of the ATP Qatar Open tennis competition in Doha on January 2, 2018. / AFP PHOTO / KARIM JAAFARThe Qatar Open second and third seeds — Spain’s Pablo Carreno Busta and Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic — crashed out of the tournament in the first round on Tuesday on a night of shocks in Doha.Both seeds lost in third set tie-breaks.

Playing for Alapag a ‘blessing’ for Balkman

Photo by Tristan Tamayo/INQUIRER.netJimmy Alapag’s head coaching duties over Renaldo Balkman may have just officially begun on Wednesday but the seeds were planted years before the two were on the same team together.The two had a conversation back in the 2014 Fiba World Cup when the Philippines faced Puerto Rico in the group stages, three years before Alapag ended up calling the shots Alab Pilipinas, which tapped Balkman as its new import, at the ASEAN Basketball League.ADVERTISEMENT Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City Asian shares slide on weak Japan data; US markets closed BI on alert for illegally deployed OFWs to Iraq Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC “We talked about it a couple of years ago. He always told me that if he had a chance to coach me he would and that’s what happened. Right now, I’m still thanking him because he kept his promise so I’ll keep my promise of winning him a championship.”Alapag said he hopes Balkman will be able to leave a better impression in Philippine basketball this time around and what happened in 2013 will be a thing of the past.“What happened years back was really an isolated incident, and at the end of the day no one’s perfect,” said Alapag. “We all make mistakes and he’s said numerous times he’s regretful of what happened. Hopefully this issue will be dead and he’ll be able to make a much better impression here in the Philippines.”And with Alapag burying the 2013 incident, Balkman did too.“It felt good, the reception, and I didn’t expect it. The past is the past,” said Balkman. “I did lots of things since then and tonight, it wasn’t on my mind, it wasn’t on my head. I just went out there to play basketball.”ADVERTISEMENT Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Do not bring these items in SEA Games venues 8th Top Leaders Forum assessed the progress of public-private efforts in building climate and disaster resilient communitiescenter_img Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. “When I saw him in Spain, he said ‘if you ever get to coaching and the door opens for me to come back to Manila, I’m willing to play for you,’” said Alapag after Alab dispatched Westports Malaysia, 90-79, Wednesday night in the controversial import’s first game.In a sense, Alapag gave Balkman a chance at redemption after the Puerto Rican international got banned from the PBA in 2013 after choking then Petron teammate Arwind Santos in a scuffle.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderBalkman said having Alapag, the same man he defeated in Puerto Rico’s 77-73 victory over the Philippines back in the 2014 World Cup, as a coach was a blessing bestowed upon him.“I played against him as a player, now he’s my coach.
