By: MoneyFacts

The equity release market is responding to increasing demand from elderly homeowners looking to unlock cash from their homes with a wider range of products and options, according to new research by Moneyfacts.

The research, which focused on the current offerings available in the equity release market, found that there are now 70 different lifetime mortgage equity release deals available covering a wide range of options and loan-to-values (LTVs), an increase of 34% on the number of deals available last year and more than double the total number from three years ago (see the table below).

U.S. House Prices Forecast 2016, Crash or Continuing Housing Bull Market? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The most recent release of US House prices data for December 2015 (Case Shiller 10 City Composite) continues to show little change at 197.21 against 197.40 of 4 months earlier which means that US house price inflation has spent virtually the whole of 2015 within a tight range of between +5% and +4%, which whilst stable is nevertheless a far cry from early 2014 that had house price inflation galloping ahead at near 14% per annum as illustrated by the below momentum graph.

UK Housing Market Mortgage Lending Surges by 38% / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

“The latest statistics from the BBA show that mortgage approvals are up 38% from last year. The rise has been greatly helped by intense competition in the mortgage market, with every loan-to-value (LTV) and fixed rate being fought over by lenders wanting to gain pole position. As a result, the average two-year fixed mortgage rate, for instance, has dropped from 3.14% to 2.56% in the space of just one year.

U.S. Housing Market at the Edge of Another Huge Cliff? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: EWI

Time and again, we've said that financial markets do what they do despite the Federal Reserve.

When the central bank raised its key rate in December for the first time since 2006, many thought that would translate into higher mortgage rates.

Instead, mortgage rates are nearly as low as they've ever been. A Feb. 12 CNBC headline reads:

UK Mortgage Fees Hit 21-month High / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

With over 4,500 mortgage products for borrowers to choose from it’s unsurprising that those seeking the most cost-effective deal can become confused by the array of choice available.

Assessing the overall value of a mortgage is becoming even more crucial as research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that borrowers are now stumping up more cash to arrange a mortgage, with the average mortgage fee today being a full £68 higher than in June 2014 - a 21-month high.

Think Tiny When it Comes to 2016 Real Estate Investments / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Submissions

Larissa James writes: For years, homes have been getting bigger and bigger. As a result, real estate investors have tied their money up in massive properties and McMansions. And while there will always be a demand for large luxury homes, there’s a growing trend that’s evolving into a new real estate investment opportunity. They’re classified as “tiny homes,” but cash flow is anything but tiny for those willing to take on new risks.

Countdown to the End of UK Housing Market Help to Buy Phase 2 / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: MoneyFacts

In December this year the mortgage market will wave goodbye to the Help to Buy Mortgage Guarantee Scheme. Since its introduction, the scheme has had a profound effect on the 95% loan-to-value (LTV) mortgage market, giving it a significant boost at a vital time.

As a result of the impetus from the scheme, data from Moneyfacts.co.uk can reveal that the number of mortgages at 95% LTV has risen from 56 in October 2013 to 249 today – a 444% increase.

Government 'Processing Error' Sinks U.S. Housing Market Reports for Entire Year / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Shedlock

Huge "Processing Error" in Government Housing Data

When I saw some of the upwardly revised GDP estimates in 2015 I thought they were too good to be true, and that downward revisions were coming.

I had almost given up on that idea, but I was correct all along.

Last month, construction spending was reported to be up 1%. Today we see it was only 0.3%. Economists, being perpetual optimists, came up with a consensus estimate for this month of +0.7% The actual result is -0.4%, over a full percentage point below the consensus and nearly a pull point lower than the lowest estimate of +0.5%.

China Impending Real Estate Housing Market Crash / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

We woke up this morning to find oil prices weighing on the market… again… with China suffering the biggest losses. Oil prices have already kept stocks at bay in the best time of the year.

Funny how this “Santa Claus” rally that I predicted wouldn’t happen this year, didn’t. The last time was in 2007 and 2008 – the last years the stock market crashed.

UK Climate Change Floods Crisis to Hit House Prices 2016 and Beyond / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst Britain was still dealing with the consequences of the floods of the northern most regions of England of barely 3 weeks ago, now the conveyor belt of heavy rainfall has been working its way down the length of Britain to encompass much of the North of England, Yorkshire and Lancashire and increasingly starting to impact on central England. These are further signs of the real consequences of climate change as the diverging Jet Stream, a conveyor belt for dumping heavy rainfall onto Britain is increasingly becoming a common occurrence that is likely to persist for many more months with the next heavy deluge expected Wednesday.

U.S. Housing Market Warning - Don’t Sit On Your Real Estate! / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

I suppose you could say we have World War II to thank.

Upon returning from the war, soldiers had their GI benefits to enjoy and a deep-seated desire to start a family. And so was born (quite literally) the baby boom, and an accompanying surge in home buying.

Out of the ashes of destruction arose an American middle class and the first generation able to more broadly buy homes with long-term mortgages.

By: MoneyFacts

Indeed, calculations from Moneyfacts.co.uk based on the average two-year fixed rate mortgage show that a new borrower would now be £805.44* a year better off than they were a year ago.
