Declare Detroit a Free City, Give Free Markets a Chance / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: MISES

Patrick Barron writes: We who advocate the free market as the sure path to peace and prosperity often hear that the US economy has to get much, much worse before any real reforms will be allowed. Why must we continue to wait before taking serious action to throttle back parasitic government? A common response is that we need to wait until things are so bad that no one will be able to deny that government is the problem and not the answer. Then even died-in-the-wool socialists will give the free market a chance.

How Higher Mortgage Interest Rates Will Dent U.S. Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: How much do higher mortgage rates reduce home sales?

That, of course, depends on how much rates rise and whom you ask. But there's no doubt higher mortgage rates hurt sales, experts say.

Interest rates have been climbing since May. Rates on 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages averaged 4.37% for the week ending July 18, Freddie Mac's weekly survey of conforming mortgage rates said. That's up more than a percentage point from early May.

Sheffield City Council Selective Licensing New 25% Landlord Tax to Trigger House Prices Drop? / Housing-Market / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

Many of Sheffield's landlords are in uproar as the Council looks set to impose what amounts to an average 25% tax on the bottom end of the cities privately rented housing sector by means of a £1000 additional charge to existing fees on EACH property, given that such targeted properties would yield an annual rental income of between £300 and £400 per month, therefore this amounts to a tax of between 20% and 27% of a years rental income that wipes out most of the profit earned which will have the effect of triggering Landlords to rush to dump and avoid the bottom end of the rental sector which suggests an imminent temporary drop in house prices at the bottom end of the cities housing market, that would also suggest an opportunity for first time buyers this summer.

By: Money_Morning

Martin Hutchinson writes: If you listen to most pundits, you would think housing is on its way back.

But I don't listen to people. I do my own research and make up my mind.

And what I've found is that this housing rally is a double-edged sword. But if you're smart you take advantage of its potential while eliminating much of its real risks.

Garrett Baldwin writes: In 2013, Congress is expected to explore a number of tax reforms in order to address staggering deficits and a crippling $17 trillion in debt owed by the Federal government.

No proposed tax reform will be more controversial this year than attempts to alter the Home Mortgage Interest Deduction (HMID).

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: Housing has rebounded in a big way.

Sales of new, single-family homes surged from April to May at the highest rate since July 2008 and by 29% over the previous year, while existing home sales reached the highest level since November 2009.

And home prices posted their biggest annual increase in more than seven years in May and are expected to continue rising, CoreLogic said Tuesday.

Panic in the Bond Market, Did Bernanke Just Kill the Homebuilders? / Housing-Market / Housing Stocks

By: Investment_U

Zach Scheidt writes: Stock prices for major U.S. homebuilders are under pressure as investors worry about higher interest rates. If you’re invested in these stocks, you should worry, too.

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke indicated recently that the Fed will soon begin to reduce its $85 billion-a-month bond purchases, and end them all together by the middle of next year. The news sent shivers through the bond market, driving prices lower and pushing interest rates higher.

Did the Federal Reserve Just Kill the U.S. Housing Market Recovery? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: Get ready folks, the party in the housing market may be drawing to a close. Sure, the housing market has steadily improved—you can thank the Federal Reserve for that. But nothing lasts forever.

Just take a look at the steady rise in the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rates after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested he might have to reduce his monthly bond buying—buying that helped to drive down lower-term financing rates.

U.S. Real Estate Investing: Now Time to Take Advantage of the Current Buyer’s Market? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Don_Miller

While I spent well over three decades writing books and teaching the subject of negotiations, some of the best lessons I learned on the subject came from luck.

Many investment pundits recommend taking full advantage of the current buyer’s market in real estate. Lenders are foreclosing on many properties, often selling them at a loss. At the same time, many private sellers are listing their property on the market well below what they paid for it. This presents wonderful buying opportunities for those who can take advantage of them. If you are going to buy property, you want the best price you can get.

U.S. Mortgage Interest Rates on the Rise; Repeat of Lead-Up to 2008? / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes:One reaction that should not surprise long-term investors is that the market will move far quicker and further than most people expect. Even before the Federal Reserve has made any statement regarding the timing of reducing its asset purchase program, investors have already begun selling their fixed-income investments, which is causing yields to rise.

U.S. Housing Market - Time to Buy a House? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Anyone who buys a house in today’s market should be aware of the risks. They should know that current prices are not supported by fundamentals, but by unprecedented manipulation by the Fed, the Obama administration, Wall Street Private Equity investors, and the nation’s biggest banks. If any of these main-players withdraws or even reduces their support for the market (in other words, if the banks release more of their distressed inventory, if rates rise, if PE firms buy fewer homes, or if the Congress curtails current mortgage modification programs), housing prices will fall. Given the increasing volatility in global stock and bond markets in recent weeks–which is likely to intensify as the Fed  implements its exit strategy from QE– interest rates will continue to fluctuate putting downward pressure on housing sales and prices. The impact the Fed’s policy will have on markets and the economy is unknown. The Central Bank is in uncharted water. That makes it a particularly bad time to buy a home. Caveat emptor.

U.S. Housing Recovery Already Comes to an End? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The housing market simply isn’t improving at the rate many in the mainstream media are telling us.

Home prices are still significantly lower than what they were during 2005 and 2006. On its own, there is no housing market recovery. All we are witnessing is the mere reflection of easy money provided by our central bank.

U.S. Housing Market Potential for Catastrophic Losses for FHA / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: Five years after the financial crisis, just about everyone has had to clean up their act.

Consumers have less credit card debt. Banks are stuffed with capital, prodded by the Federal Reserve. Even the federal deficit is shrinking.

But one federal agency seems to have resisted long-overdue change. It's the Federal Housing Administration or FHA.

U.S. House Prices Accelerating, Fed Succeeding in Inflating New Ponzi Housing Market Bubble? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Fed's QE-Infinity money printing programme to buy mortgage backed securities and government bonds that is running at a monthly rate of $85 billion is succeeding in inflating another US housing market bubble as house prices surge by an annualised rate of 11% in March (28th May) with some cities such as Phoenix seeing house prices soar by an annualised rate of 20%.

Now whilst the title of this article may contain the word bubble, however understand this that we are in the very early stages of the housing bull market that follows on from the embryonic bull market of 2012 which has many years to run, so do not make the mistake that many market commentators are making in the wake of the latest data, those who never saw this bull market coming are busy already proclaiming it as bubble that is about to burst.
