1 Keys to Preserving Homeownership through Housing Counseling NeighborWorks Week 2015: Empowering Neighborhood Leaders! June 6, 2015 St. Luke's Episcopal Church
2 Overview According to a Minneapolis Study by The Center for Housing Policy, entitled The Role of Housing Counseling in Reducing Mortgage Delinquency and Foreclosure1 there is strong evidence that housing counseling can be an effective intervention in helping distressed homeowners avoid foreclosure.
3 Overview - Findings Specifically: A nationwide study of the foreclosure mitigation counseling program found that borrowers who had missed a payment on their mortgage were 45 to 50 percent more likely to get up-to-date on payments if they received counseling2. Homeowners in default who received counseling were twice as likely to avoid foreclosure as those who did not in a study of the Mortgage Foreclosure Prevention Program3.
4 Overview - Findings Early intervention is a key component! One study found that borrowers who received counseling in the early stages of default were far more likely to receive a loan modification and/or keep their homes than those who received counseling when they were seriously delinquent4.
5 Overview - Findings Families who participated in the National Foreclosure Mitigation Counseling (NFMC) program were also able to negotiate lower monthly costs. An evaluation found that the monthly payments of households that received counseling were, on average, $267 less than those who did not participate in counseling5. Counseling also made it 45% more likely that the homeowner would sustain those payments after modification6.
6 Overview - Findings There is also evidence that counseling provided before a household purchases a home can reduce the likelihood of mortgage delinquency. Most studies have found that pre-purchase counseling leads to positive results, reducing delinquency anywhere from 19 to 50 percent, although one study reported no impact.7 Research in 2001 found that face-to-face counseling was most effective, resulting in a 34 percent reduction in delinquency for participating homeowners.8
7 Overview - Findings Pre-purchase counseling can help reduce the likelihood of default and foreclosure by helping individuals determine if they are ready for homeownership, and by connecting them with safer and more affordable mortgage products.
8 Overview - Findings One study has estimated that 30 to 50 percent of subprime borrowers prior to the housing crisis could have qualified for prime loans.9 Well-underwritten, prime loans to low- and moderateincome borrowers have much lower default rates than subprime loans made to comparable borrowers.10 Prepurchase housing counseling from a HUD-Approved Housing Counseling Agency can improve homeowners access to appropriate mortgage products.
9 Overview - Findings Additional & ongoing research is still being conducted to better understand the full impact of homeownership education and counseling. Researchers have employed a variety of methods to examine the effects of homeownership education and counseling but to date have not conducted an experimental trial. Research comparing outcomes for households randomly selected to receive pre-purchase homeownership counseling against control groups of households that do not receive counseling would make a significant contribution to the field.
