Multiple topics - FHA loan limits increase - Zillow's new app - Highest title insurance profits ever - Curbio - Artificial Intelligence

  • FHA LOAN LIMITS INCREASED!  FHA increased loan limits on multi family housing another $8 billion per year on each enterprise Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac…totaling $156 billion/year in multi family properties.  And word is that the $412,850 FHA single family loan limit will go up substantially higher than this level.  Both actions are designed to increase housing affordability in low down payments and more homes which qualify for FHA.
  • Zillow Is Bringing Artificial Intelligence to Real Estate - Zillow is working on called a floor plan generator, where they can take the images people upload and generate an actual floor plan with a house for you and find the house you're really looking for...combining that AI with their other AI algorithm (Zestimate). may result in making actual offers on homes.    Don't hold your breath.
  • Q2 Title Insurance Premiums of $6.5 Billion Break Records - That's alot of cash corresponding to an approximate 3.5% payout ratio...or approximately $222 million - but for what - errors or overlooked issues that weren't corrected before closing?  Do we have full transparency in the title insurance industry with Billions of dollars collected and only millions in payouts? However, title insurance companies didn’t exactly lose during this period. During the first six months of 2021, the industry overall paid out $221.1 million in claims, down from $232.9 million from the same period a year prior.  Maybe we ought to consider modeling after Iowa’s title insurance which is far cheaper and requires title defects to be corrected prior to closing.

Curbio is the leading home improvement company for Realtors® and their selling clients in the US, with a fast and effortless process to repair and update those areas that will get the largest renovation ROI. 
  • Tech Leaders Discuss Artificial Intelligence and its Impact on the Real Estate Industry - Chatbots and voice assistants are extremely popular right now as they allow real estate professionals to provide around-the-clock support that doesn't require a human," said Vin Vomero, CEO of Foxy AI. "Foxy AI's ‘Remodel It' uses computer vision to help consumers get instant and customizable home renovation estimates by analyzing the photos on listing websites by ZIP code. Some companies avoid using A.I. because of the perceived costs and resources required to use it, a lack of trust in A.I. products, the difficulty in explaining what it does behind the scenes and a fear of an A.I. takeover related to job displacement," said Julianne Heller, data scientist at NAR.
