How to Profit from "Margin Call" on American Homeowners / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Get ready. There's more trouble ahead for home buyers, home builders, and especially homeowners who took out home-equity lines of credit before the housing crisis. Those heydays have turned into haymakers.

What's already started to happen might not only knock out the formerly aspiring but now petering-out housing recovery, but also might knock the already weak economy to the ground.

US Housing Market's Darkening Data, Get Ready for Falling House Prices / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Dr_Martenson

Brian Pretti writes: When looking at residential real estate, we often tend to focus almost solely on recent price movements in assessing the health of the housing market at any point in time. But as both homeowners and income-earners in the larger economy, of which the housing market is an important component, to really understand what's going on, we need clarity into the larger cycle driving those price movements.

The more we look at today's data, the more it looks like that we are in a new type of pricing cycle -- one that homeowners and housing investors have no prior experience with.

How Trees Increase or Reduce Home Values - Dangers, Inspection, Neighbours, Pruning and Removal / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Percentage added to home value of 200% to 500% of typical costs incurred. Typically £500 spent can convert into as much as a £2.5k increase in value.

It is the responsibility of every home owner to ensure that their trees are in keeping with the size of their garden and neighbouring properties. Not only do very tall unpruned trees result in a lot of maintenance issues such as from falling leaves branches and wide spreading roots, as well as the legal responsibility of the tree owner should during a storm the tree topple over and damage property or even cause injury.

Home Ownership Debt, Mortgages, Slavery and the Risk of Ruin / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain has a debt based economy where expanding total debt is the primary enabler for the economy to expand and that is the primary purpose of the Bank of England to enable governments to expand total debt be it public or private. However, following the credit crisis collapse of 2007-2009, individuals and banks become reluctant to borrow despite record low interest rates and hence why despite successive Governments (Labour and Coalition) having gone on a relentless spending binge to the tune of £750 billion of new debt the economy stagnated due to the failure to ignite a borrowing frenzy amongst Britain's working population.

Help to Buy Caution - House Buying or Renting Scenarios / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

You may not be fully aware that the Help to Buy Scheme is an upto 20% EQUITY BACKED LOAN, which means that the government owns 20% of your property in exchange for the 5 year interest free loan. The loan is repaid when the property is sold or at the end of the mortgage term when you repay 20% of the SALE PRICE. So if house prices rise by 33% then so does the value of the loan at the time of repayment.

Will a Garage Conversion Add Value to My Home? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It can be very tempting for home owners in need of living space to contemplate the conversion of their integral or attached garages.

How Much Value Does a Conservatory Add to Your Home? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Percentage added to home value of 50% to 133% of typical costs incurred. Typically £16k spent can convert into as much as a £22k increase in value, though this is very variable and can result in a loss of 50% of the costs incurred.

Whether a conservatory will add value to your home is not a clear cut decision as it depends on a number of factors such as the intended quality of build as the price for conservatories ranges from £5k at the low end for a wholly UPVC build bolted onto the back of houses to one built onto a dwarf wall of upto 30square metres in area that can cost upto £30k.

Home Buyers, Sellers and Estate Agents, Sell Your House for Cash? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

What you need to know about Estate Agents

There will be greater competition in affluent areas between estate agents for business due to higher potential commissions, therefore there is a tendency to more aggressively value these properties so as to secure business and shut out other agents which means houses at least when first going on the market will tend to be over priced by typically 10%.
