What would a wall of foreclosures do to home prices?
If a flood of mortgage foreclosures hits because of the coronavirus and related shocks to the labor market and economy in general, what will happen to home prices, especially in the middle of a housing shortage? It's complicated, but a working paper from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s Center for Financial Research takes a stab at some answers. The study, although it looks at a time of housing surplus due to a failed subprime mortgage system, which contributed to the shortage — suggests that when foreclosures spike, home prices are not necessarily local, local, local for each specific location, location, location, to borrow the armchair axiom for assessing the desirability of real estate.

Lenders are slowly starting to offer jumbo mortgages again
Lenders are slowly and selectively starting to underwrite jumbo mortgages again after all but abandoning the market as the pandemic got underway. Since February, jumbo mortgage originations have plunged 57 percent, according to data from the Mortgage Bankers Association. The once-robust market for jumbo loans, and some other types of loans, collapsed at the onset of the pandemic. Lenders worried about the ability of borrowers to repay their loans as unemployment skyrocketed.
