Rocketing First-time Home Buyer Mortgage Deals / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

“First-time buyer products have soared to their highest level since 2007, with the number of 90% and 95% loan-to-value (LTV) mortgages now totalling 723 products. This marks a 73% increase on five years ago, when buyers with small deposits only had the choice of 194 products.

“Surprisingly, Help-to-Buy (H2B) doesn’t account for all of these new products, but with the number of deals totalling 437 before the scheme was launched, it is clear that H2B acted as a catalyst for banks and building societies to get in on the act.

Inflation Is Lurking, but This Asset Can Protect You / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Peter Krauth writes:While the investing world is focused on Greece, events unfolding right now in Africa offer another important cautionary tale.

Thanks to reckless political and economic mismanagement, Zimbabwe holds clues to the future of other nations – like ours.

Granted, this failed state's policies have been more egregious than those perpetrated by the U.S. government against its people. Nonetheless, some of the outcomes could be similar. And I'm going to tell you one way to protect yourself.

Quadruple Growth in Fee-free UK Mortgages / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Charlotte Nelson, Finance Expert at Moneyfacts.co.uk, comments: “Research from Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that the number of fee-free mortgages has quadrupled in the last five years, increasing from 220 deals in 2010 to a staggering 902 today.

“With a quarter of the market now offering fee-free deals, it’s clear that lenders are trying to compete in other ways besides the traditional headline rate. By offering multiple product combinations, providers are almost allowing their borrowers to customise their mortgage to suit them.

By: Submissions

Victoria Adams writes: When you have fallen into mortgage arrears, it is very important to communicate with your mortgage lender about your financial situation.

It’s All a Lie: The Truth about U.S. Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

Most commentary on the housing markets — from the industry, from analysts, from the media — all give the impression that the housing crisis is well behind us. One economist in U.S. News & World Report highlighted the slight uptake in new single-family homes this year as fodder for economic growth. So is a $4.95 purchase at Ben & Jerry’s! Like we discussed last week, the increase in new home sales isn't worth a hoot!

US Housing Market Bull, Bear or Crash Ahead? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

U.S. House prices as according to many analysts are apparently continuing to defy gravity, which is now for the third year as the latest data for March 2015 has US house prices rising by 0.8% on the month on the Case Shiller 10 city composite index. Which nevertheless did give some hope to the doom merchants as momentum has plunged or crashed as many like to prefer from a 14% inflation rate of a year go to a sub 5% inflation rate. Find out what this means for US house prices into 2016.

The Fed's Failure: U.S. New Home Sales Back to 1960s Levels / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

By Rodney Johnson : A problem with most humans is that we’re really bad at letting go of what happened yesterday. So too with nations. When estimating potential threats, it’s easy for leaders to adapt to whatever happened in the latest conflict, developing their military accordingly.

Think of the U.S. after World War II. We built up land forces across Europe to guard against an invasion by the U.S.S.R. Later on in Vietnam we dove into jungle warfare, where tanks and mass forces were less useful. We were set up to fight the last war, not the next one.

UK House Prices Post Election Fall, Whilst Annual Momentum Plays Catchup / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The latest UK house prices seasonally adjusted data published by the Halifax registered a fall of 0.1% for May 2015 that followed a 1.6% surge for April as George Osborne succeeded in his pre-election house prices boom timed to reach maximum intensity just prior to election day. Following which house prices are starting to show signs of rolling over in the monthly data whilst the annual data continues to play catch up as annual inflation nudged higher to 8.6%. Which also makes a mockery of recent mainstream press deflation scare stories in the wake of annual CPI dropping to -0.1%, which at the time I warned was ignoring the elephant in the room, namely house price inflation galloping ahead at 10% per annum.

US Housing Market - Something Smells Fishy / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: James_Quinn

It’s always interesting to see a long term chart that reflects your real life experiences. I bought my first home in 1990. It was a small townhouse and I paid $100k, put 10% down, and obtained a 9.875% mortgage. I was thrilled to get under 10%. Those were different times, when you bought a home as a place to live. We had our first kid in 1993 and started looking for a single family home. We stopped because our townhouse had declined in value to $85k, so I couldn’t afford to sell. In 1995 I convinced my employer to rent my townhouse, as they were already renting multiple townhouses for all the foreigners doing short term assignments in the U.S. We bought a single family home in 1995 with the sole purpose of having a decent place to raise a family that was within 20 minutes of my job.

Why Do We Celebrate Rising U.S. House Prices? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: MISES

Ryan McMaken writes: In recent years, home price indices have seemed to proliferate. Case-Shiller, of course, has been around for a long time, but over the past decade, additional measures have been marketed aggressively by Trulia, CoreLogic, and Zillow, just to name a few.

Measuring home prices has taken on an urgency beyond the real estate industry because for many, home price growth has become something of an indicator of the economy as a whole. If home prices are going up, it is assumed, “the economy” must be doing well. Indeed, we are encouraged to relax when home prices are increasing or holding steady, and we’re supposed to become concerned if home prices are going down.

5 Ways You Can Stop House Eviction In UK / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Submissions

Victoria Adams writes: Mortgage arrears could be the worst nightmare for any homeowner since it leads to you losing your home. When you are unable to pay the loan secured on the home, the chances of having your home repossessed increase. The risk of losing the possession of your home to your mortgage lender also increases if you do not pay your instalments on time. Mortgage repossessions have leaped to their highest levels in the last few years.

U.S. Government Using Subprime Mortgages To Pump Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: James_Quinn

Taxpayers Will Pay Again - It seems hard to believe, but your government is purposely recreating the mortgage debacle of 2007 and putting you on the hook for the billions in losses coming down the road. In their frantic effort to generate the appearance of economic recovery they are willing to gamble with taxpayer’s money while luring unsuspecting blue collar folks into buying houses they can’t afford. During the previous housing bubble, greedy Wall Street bankers, deceitful mortgage brokers, and corrupt rating agencies colluded to commit the greatest control fraud in the history of mankind. This time it is your government, aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve, that is actively promoting the lending of money to people incapable of paying it back. And again, you the taxpayer will be on the hook when it predictably blows up.
