Choose Your Neighborhood Wisely / Housing-Market / Social Issues

By: Rodney_Johnson

To make good on a promise to my wife, a native Texan, we just completed our move from Florida back to Texas.

When we left the Lone Star State in 2005 (on her birthday, no less), she told me she’d like to move back when the kids had left the house. With the youngest now a freshman in college, it was time.

We could live anywhere, since my work doesn’t require a geographic center. So last fall we narrowed the search for a new home by considering climate, natural beauty, proximity to a major airport and health care, and travel time to relatives.

US Housing Market Mortgage Delinquency Rates Increase & 3X ETFs / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Delinquency rates in Single Family Residential Mortgages and other Consumer Loans began to climb through the later half of 2016 and early 2017.  The timing of this delinquency rate increase coincided almost identically with the Fed increases in their Funds Rate.  Additionally, commercial loan origination stalled for the first time since 2008-2011 (prior to that was a stall in 2000).

As you’ve been likely been following our daily video market analysis, you’ll know that we believe the market is still in a bullish trend and that we expect this upward price action to continue for a while.

Why US Commercial Real Estate Is the Next ‘’Big Short’’ / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: STRATFOR

A small but growing group of hedge funds are positioning themselves to profit from the collapse of the real estate market. Sounds like 2007, right? It’s actually happening right now.

But this time, hedge funds (along with Deutsche Bank and Morgan Stanley) aren’t targeting subprime mortgages—they’re going after commercial real estate.

Our Economies Run On Housing Bubbles / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

We are witnessing the demise of the world’s two largest economic power blocks, the US and EU. Given deteriorating economic conditions on both sides of the Atlantic, which have been playing out for many years but were so far largely kept hidden from view by unprecedented issuance of debt, the demise should come as no surprise.

The debt levels are not just unprecedented, they would until recently have been unimaginable. When the conditions for today’s debt orgasm were first created in the second half of the 20th century, people had yet to wrap their minds around the opportunities and possibilities that were coming on offer. Once they did, they ran with it like so many lemmings.

Is Now a Good Time to Invest in the US Housing Market? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nicholas_Kitonyi

The US housing market has maintained its subdued growth following Trump’s election to The White House. Towards the end of last year, especially in the run-in to the US presidential elections, there was what appeared to be a strong belief that Trump would be bad for the stock market if elected as president, and by extension the overall economy of the US.

However, the US stock market has experienced one of the best runs in history repeatedly breaking the all-time highs from one week to the next. The housing market, on the other hand, has experienced a rather slower growth since Trump’s election, but the point is that it’s been growing, nonetheless.
