The Surety and Title Insurance sector has been struck hard by the current recession. Despite incredibly low house prices, buyers are choosing to shun the housing market as recent surveys have shown many consumers believe the heavy costs of buying a home outweigh the benefits. This decrease in first time home sales has hurt the mortgage insurance segment of the Surety and Title Insurance sector as the shift in consumer preference towards refinancing yields far lower premiums. It is expected that the housing market will remain depressed until unemployment numbers improve. In August, the job rate increase 20,000 more than previously predicted potentially signaling a recovery in the economy and an ease in foreclosures.
