Despite these changes, one needs to keep perspective when analyzing this industry, according to Brian Moynihan, Chairman, and CEO of Bank of America, who recently spoke about the changes in mortgage interest caps and the macro factors affecting housing at CNBC’s Net/Net event in New York.Speaking about the changes to the cap in the mortgage interest that homeowners could write off, implemented in the Tax Cuts Act, Moynihan said that it was unchartered territory for many homeowners as well as financial institutions because the home mortgage interest deduction was “so jealously protected for so many years. And $10,000 is a pretty healthy amount of interest.”However, he said that these changes wouldn’t have a huge effect on homeowners because to qualify for that kind of cap on a mortgage, “a household’s probably got to have a $100,000 to $125,000 of income, a little bit more. So a couple hundred dollars a month isn’t going to make the decision different.” At the most, Moynihan said it would slow down a homeowner’s decision to upgrade. “But I think we’ve got to be careful about over-estimating across the 60 million households that have debt out of 130 million households in America.”Touching upon the high-interest rate environment and the health of the housing market, Moynihan said, “Housing is at tails,” as a number of factors were affecting the housing market, but they should be kept in perspective, especially since the rising rates will not change the market in any major way. “We still did, around, 10.5 billion of mortgage loans this quarter. Last year we probably did 13 billion,” Moynihan told the audience.Looking at the effect of population on housing, Moynihan said, “At the end of the day, without population growth that we had in the mid-2000s at 1.5 percent the demand for housing is going to sort of ebb and flow a little differently.”Looking at the larger market, Moynihan said that housing construction was growing evenly because of locational problems. “It’s really tight in cities like Charlotte where we’re trying to build tens of thousands of units for workers because we’re short. In other places, there’s an excess of supply,” especially in cities that are still recovering from the Great Recession. Despite rising home prices and inventory remaining down, for the most part, Moynihan said that they were fine for now. “But we got to watch it because it’ll be a leading indicator of people’s belief in their wealth if we see housing prices tip over,” he said.

Returning Lions Tommy Bowe and Rory Best made the perfect return to club colours as Ulster racked up their first bonus point victory of the campaign in a 32-13 RaboDirect PRO12 win over Treviso. Press Association Ulster continued to dominate, though, and got their reward when Paddy Jackson landed a 10th minute penalty. However, Treviso hit back after Ulster were penalised at a scrum and Mat Berquist levelled the scores after 16 minutes. Five minutes later Ulster were back in front after a marvellous burst from Payne created the space to put Luke Marshall in under the posts and, after the TMO was again consulted for a forward pass, the score was awarded. Jackson landed the easy conversion. Seven minutes later, Allen this time clearly made it over the line after a great Ulster surge down the right which then saw Tom Court, Rory Best and Chris Henry all assist before Payne put Allen clear. Jackson missed the tricky conversion and though there were no further scores in the remainder of the half, Ulster looked very secure with their 15-3 interval lead. However, Paul Marshall’s poor knock-on from the restart gave Treviso an easy three points from Alberto Di Bernardo to cut Ulster’s lead to 15-6. The hosts regrouped and after another great attacking move, Jackson’s cross-kick to Bowe was fumbled over the line by Ludovico Nitoglia – presenting the returning Lions winger with the easiest of scores which Jackson failed to convert. His fellow Lions tourist Best then crossed for the bonus point score two minutes after the hour mark but, yet again, Jackson failed to slot between the uprights. Instead of taking total control, Ulster again did themselves damage when replacement Lewis Stevenson was shown yellow for infringing at the breakdown. Despite some heroic defence, the inevitable try came when replacement Robert Barbieri barged over with 10 minutes to go and Di Bernado’s conversion made it 25-13. Then after conceding nothing further before Stevenson’s return, Ulster finished strongly with Allen bagging his second score in the game’s final move. Jackson managed to convert. Winger Michael Allen contributed two excellent scores while Ireland international Luke Marshall also crossed the Treviso line, with Paddy Jackson kicking two conversions and a penalty. The home side nearly scored within the first two minutes after Bowe released Allen on the right only for the TMO to rule the score out, as was the case a minute later when Ulster drove over the line from a lineout.
