leading residential property information, analytics and services provider,
today released its February MarketPulse report. In this report CoreLogic Chief
Economist Mark Fleming discusses the current state of the economy and housing
markets as well as challenges facing the mortgage market in 2013. The
potential influence of the Qualified Mortgage (QM) and Qualified Residential
Mortgage (QRM) rules is analyzed.


Additional key findings in the February MarketPulse report include:

  oConsumer spending levels will likely be impacted by the reduction in
    disposable income due to the expiration of the payroll tax holiday.
  oPurchase demand for homes may be negatively impacted by uncertainty
    created by ongoing debt ceiling debates.
  oStrong mortgage origination volumes in 2012 were dominated by refinance
    transactions; in 2013 and 2014 refinance transactions as a share of the
    total mortgage origination market is expected to decrease.
  oOnly about half of the total mortgage originations today would qualify for
    QM coverage if there was no GSE exemption.
  oThe states most impacted by QM are Nevada and Hawaii.
