7 Purchase vs. Refinance Loans
FYTD THRU EOM JULY: Purchase = 77% of volume; Refi = 23%

8 Loan Volume is Increasing…

9 Top Five States for VA Loans

10 Market Share Data from Realtor.Org and Loan Gty Reports. Jun #s came out July 24. Per data Jun mortgages totaled 504,000, an increase of 4.3% from May. VA loans for Jun were approx 18,000, a 7.4% increase from the 16,782 in May.

11 Specially Adapted Housing Grants 1998-Present
Program cumulative figures from 262 on Actual grant total cited as 34,610. Dollar value estimated (rather than run 42 separate TAS reports... Will do that at EOFY). FYTD figures: (thru June ) 1st use: 422 Subsequent use: 304 Since inception, the SAH program has made over 34,000 grants for approx. $668M

12 Defaults Pending 1997-Present
FYTD 2008 data is thru EOM July Default reporting changed to 61st day; used to be 105th day. Enables LGY to intervene at earlier date to help veterans avoid foreclosure. Some increase in Defaults figure is due to change in reporting criteria; some increase also due to market conditions.

13 Foreclosures 7524 foreclosures FYTD 2008… flat line puts us at 9,029 foreclosures July Foreclosures up approximately 17% from June July 2008 Foreclosures UP approximately 29% from July 2007 FY figures for past years: 12,586 9,528 8,113 Flat-line projection puts EOFY figure at just over 9,000 foreclosures

14 Mortgage Industry Delinquencies

15 Toll Free Number for Outreach: (877) 827-3702
The Subprime Crisis VA does not make subprime loans, and the average VA borrower does not have subprime credit VA Credit Standards Avg. VA FICO score = 679 Toll Free Number for Outreach: (877) Subprime Loan Characteristics Various layers or risk; A-paper, Alt-A paper, Subprime-paper Liar Loans, No-doc loans, Teaser-rate ARMs, Balloon mortgages Subprime Crisis for Dummies Surge in subprime originations (20% of all originations in 2006) Risky loans = high foreclosure rates High foreclosure rates of the 2000-vintage loans led to lack of liquidity in secondary market; this has sparked tightening in credit availability across the industry Collateral Impact of Subprime Crisis Increase in foreclosures = increased housing supply Concurrently, credit has tightened as investors, fearing the quality of sub-prime loans, withdraw funds from the mortgage market Even well qualified buyers experience difficulties in obtaining new mortgages. With supply now exceeding demand, prices have naturally declined. Current decline in home prices means that in many areas, borrowers in default now have less equity or no equity against which to borrow in order to cure the default. In many areas home equity values have declined so substantially that the option to cure the default is altogether eliminated. For many borrowers who are in default, and are not able to cure the default, there are now fewer options to sell their homes for enough to satisfy outstanding mortgage debt, in time to avoid foreclosure. The net result of this situation will be a rise in foreclosures, industry-wide.
