    The Need For Residential Assessments – Dr. Elizabeth Wassenaar

    in Youth

    All psychological assessments are not the same explained Dr. Elizabeth Wassenaar, Director of Williams House, a part of Lindner Center of Hope In Ohio, in an interview with Lon on October 28, 2015.  A short assessment done in a couple of hours in an office does not give nearly enough information to make a properly informed assessment.  Lindner Center of Hope feels that it takes two weeks for an adolescent to get oriented, to take a wide battery of necessary tests and be observed for a few days in their normal daily routine.  Listen to Dr. Wassenaar explain how to do a proper job of an assessment, it really must be residential and take a few days.

    Why Would a Student Stay In a Residential Program?

    in Parents

    Patrick Barrasso joined Lon Feb. 12, 2015 to explain why a student stays in a residential program.  It might be news to some, but the answer is not gates, locks, guards or force.  Patrick is the founder and President of  InBalance Ranch Academy in Tucson Arizona and explained that instead, the main thing that keeps his students in the program is they are beginning to feel better.  Sometimes they find they have better friendships than ever before, which is a powerful motivator to finish the program.  Another reason is the firmness of the parents to hold to their belief that their child needs to be there.  And plus, they feel they have some choice in the matter by being helped to consider the consequences if they do not finish the program.

    NPL Market & The Distressed Residential Mortgage Summit - Andrews, CEO DBI

    in Finance

    According to a recent article in HousingWire, the recent push by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to offload pools of non-performing loans sales will increase the depth of the distressed residential mortgage market, which could have positive implications for banks seeking to sell their own non-performing loans.

    Fitch analysts believe that residential mortgage NPLs are far less of a threat to the GSEs and banks than they were five years ago, but note that 90-plus day past-due loans are still elevated relative to historical averages and relative to their contributions to total NPL levels.

    Analysts believe this implies that both the GSEs and the banks remain motivated sellers of NPLs.

    According to Fitch’s data, FDIC-insured banks held a total of approximately $61 billion in 90-plus days past due one-to-four family mortgages at the end of 2014 compared to Fannie and Freddie who held about $86 billion of 90-plus day delinquent loans.

    These conditions make a robust NPL market a real possibility for the balance 2015 and beyond.

    Joining me today to discuss Distressed Mortgage Trading is Peter Andrews, Founder & CEO of Dreambuilder Investments, a private investment firm specializing in the acquisition, management and liquidation of defaulted residential mortgages. 

    Peter is responsible for management of the firm’s trading activities and the continuous design and development of Dreambuilder’s proprietary, asset management platform.

    Peter is also Chairman of the upcoming Distressed Resdiential Mortgage Summit to be held in New York on Sept 30th through October 1st.
