Fed Won't Save the US Housing Market 2008 / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Michael_Pento

Investors are anticipating that the Fed will continue its easy money policy into 2008, which is expected to relieve credit markets. As a result, the 10-year Treasury note yield has fallen to 4.02% from a high of 5.25% reached in the summer of last year. And as evidence that the fear among banks is easing, LIBOR spreads have narrowed-- although it is still well above the historical average as well as the lows seen in July of 2007. Many now believe that the Fed, in conjunction with foreign central banks, will rescue the consumer and allow the U.S. to avoid a recession.

Falling US Home Prices and Frozen Interest Rates / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Peter_Schiff

The Bush administration's mortgage rescue plan will worsen, not alleviate, the problems in the housing market.

We are suffering from a home value crisis, not simply a credit crisis. If home prices were still rising, defaults would be low, investment returns would be high, borrowers would still be cashing out equity, and lenders would be showering credit on home buyers.

Global Financial Crisis Consequence of the Biggest Housing Bust in US History / Housing-Market / Global Financial System

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe wreckage in the housing market just keeps piling up. Sales of existing homes in October dipped 23.5% from last year. Prices on new homes dropped 13% year over year. Third quarter foreclosures skyrocketed to 635,000, a 94% increase over last October and an all-time high on the Misery-Meter. The real estate market is in free-fall and the real trouble hasn't even begun yet.

California, Nevada, Arizona and Florida are mired in a full-blown housing depression. Inventory is off-the-chart. Presently, there's a 10.8 month backlog and the numbers are steadily rising. If foreclosures continue at the current pace, by the end of 2008, there'll be a 14 month inventory. That means that every builder in the country could take off his tool-belt right now and stop working FOR MORE THAN A YEAR before the market would clear. Contractors would be filling out job-applications at Red Lobster or looking for an empty street-corner with a tin cup.

To buy one, you had to put 20% down.

No one had heard of option mortgages, no-doc mortgages or companies like Countrywide Financial that created them.

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: By now, you've probably heard of what I'm calling the "Paulson Plan" — a federal government proposal to ease the pain of the housing and mortgage market collapse. President Bush and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson held press conferences to highlight the key points yesterday.

I'll be discussing it on CNN's "Open House" show this weekend [Editor's note: 9:30 A.M. Saturday on CNN and 3:30 P.M. EST Saturday and Sunday on CNN Headline News]. But first, I wanted to share my thoughts with you.

Subprime Mortgage Bailout is the Mother of all Bad Ideas / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWithout question, the Bush administration's mortgage rescue plan will exacerbate, not alleviate, the problems in the housing market. As the plan will sharply reduce the ability of new buyers to make purchases, it really amounts to a stay of execution and not a pardon.

Subprime Mortgage Bailout - Paulson Vs the Free Market / Housing-Market / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: Michael_Pento

Joining the Fed's effort to meddle with the free market is Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson and his plan to rescue the housing market. The essence of his plan is to convince the owners of sub- prime adjustable mortgage debt to freeze the interest rate resets for a period of about five years, a proposal which is supposedly only to be available to those who will become indigent once the higher rates become effective. Ostensibly, this will ameliorate the anticipated surge in mortgage foreclosures and prevent a further decline in home prices.

FSA Warning to Mortgage Lenders To Protect Themselves Against Worsening Credit Crisis / Housing-Market / Credit Crunch

By: Sarah_Jones

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) today urged lenders to protect themselves against a possible worsening of liquidity and credit risks.

Clive Briault, FSA Retail Managing Director, told the Council of Mortgage Lenders Annual Conference: "There is a very real prospect that conditions will worsen further into next year, in terms of both liquidity and credit risks. Firms should therefore be assessing their funding and liquidity positions; undertaking robust stress testing to reflect current and prospective market conditions; reviewing and assessing their medium and longer term strategies and the options open to them; and considering contingency plans against the worst outcomes.

UK Housing Slump Gains Momentum as Properties Fail to Sell at Auction / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Home owners failing to sell properties through the traditional estate agency route are increasingly opting for the chance of a quick sale offered by Auction houses up and down Britain.

However the number of sales being achieved at auctions has plummeted, even after worried sellers rush to accept offers prior to the auction. The resulting supply overhang will result in further sharp falls in the housing market that will accumulate over the coming year as home owners price expectations are behind the housing curve and are forced to repeatedly cut prices.
