BBA statistics show that UK mortgage borrowing is 33% higher than a year ago / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

For example, the average two-year fixed mortgage rate has decreased from 3.06% to 2.56% in just 12 months, while the average five-year fixed rate has dropped from 3.60% to 3.20% over the same period.

U.S. House Prices Forecast 2016 - Video / 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.

By: MoneyFacts

In recent years the mortgage market has become an arena for fierce competition, with providers vying to have the lowest deals on the market to attract new customers. But as rates have been slashed, providers have begun to look beyond the headline rate in order to catch the eye of new borrowers.

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.

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:

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.

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.
