How to Profit from the U.S. Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

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.

Homebuyers in Bidding Wars - Why U.S. House Prices Have Been on a Tear / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: In another sign the housing recovery is genuine, home prices soared the most in more than seven years in April in 20 U.S. cities.

The S&P/Case-Shiller index, released today, climbed 12.1% from April 2012, marking the biggest year-over-year increase since March 2006, and rose 2.5% from March to April.

U.S. Housing Market Once in a Century Opportunity / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyWealth

Steve Sjuggerud writes: The numbers just came out... and they're excellent...

The median existing home price is up 15.4% year over year... to $208,000. But even at these higher prices, homes are going fast...

The latest numbers show that houses are only on the market for 41 days before they sell, versus 72 days a year ago. (These numbers are nationwide medians.)

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.

Reasons Why U.S. Housing Market Recovery is Genuine / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: The housing market recovery is for real this time. Coming after the housing market crash, the recovery is welcome news to those in the industry - and bodes well for the economy as a whole.

"It almost seems too good to be true," Lawrence Yun, the chief economist at the National Association of Realtors, told Money Morning.

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.

Best Explanation for the Fake U.S. Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The average American Joe isn’t participating in the U.S. housing market. As a matter of fact, according to the Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey, investors purchased 69% of “damaged” properties in April 2013, while first-time home buyers accounted for only 16% of “damaged” purchases.

UK Housing Bull Market Opportunities In Britain's Multiculturalism Immigration Crisis / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In the recent May 2013 local elections support for UKIP soared to more than 25%, over taking the Liberal Democrats as the third party of protest as the major parties haemorrhaged voters due to their respective failures to address a crisis that has been fermenting over a near decade that has its roots in Labours open door policy to immigration from all new eastern european accession states, especially as many in Britain now fear another re-run of what followed the likes of Poland joining the EU near a decade ago as Bulgaria and Romania joining will likely see as many as 400,000 migrants over the next 3-4 years which is set against official expectations of just 13,000 new arrivals during 2014 (Communities Department).

The Great Reflation of the U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Peter_Schiff

This week economists, investors and politicians were treated to some of the "best" home price data since the frothy days of 2006 when home loans were given out like cotton candy and condo flipping was a national pastime. The Case-Shiller 20 City Composite Home price index was up a startling 10.9% for the 12 month period ending in March. Prices in all 20 cities were up, with some (Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Francisco) notching gains of more than 20%. Meanwhile the National Association of Realtors announced that April pending home sales volume reached the highest level in nearly three years.

Is Real Estate Ever a Wise Investment for Retirees? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Don_Miller

At one point in my life you might have heard me say something like, “I’ve probably made more money in real estate by accident than I have in the market on purpose.” For many years, you could buy good-quality property, as much as you could afford, and you were almost guaranteed to make money. That ended in 2008. Now folks are looking for bargains, hoping to profit from the crash.

Chinese Sovereign Fund Shifts Focus to U.S. Real Estate / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the biggest fears for investors is to buy at the top of any market. This is a natural reaction because most of us were taught since childhood to do the opposite. For example, my parents always emphasized the importance of buying products when they’re on sale.

Some people view the significant rise in home prices with apprehension, believing that these prices have risen too far. While it is true that home prices have risen substantially, as long as interest rates remain low, there is potential for further capital appreciation.

U.S. Housing Market Important Data that Financial Media Ignored / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: J_W_Jones

Wednesday was a wild trading session where we saw the largest intraday selloff in the S&P 500 E-Mini futures that we have seen in some time. Intraday price action was driven largely by statements made by Chairman Bernanke and the release of the Federal Reserve Meeting Minutes which saw some monster intraday moves and a large spike in the Volatility Index (VIX).

While the world is focused on when the Federal Reserve is going to taper their Quantitative Easing program and the impact those actions will have on financial markets, I wanted to look at another divergence in the economic data which is supported by market action.
