U.S. Home Owners Drowning in the American Dream / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

According to a new Zillow report, 40% of all US mortgage holders can’t afford to sell their homes. That is 20 million Americans homeowners, 10 million who are downright underwater and another 10 million who are so close to being there that they don’t have the money to cover the cost of selling. And those are still numbers across the spectrum; things are far towards the bottom. ’30% of homes in the bottom price tier are in negative equity, while 18.1% of homes in the middle tier and 10.7% in the top tier are underwater’. If we assume that at the bottom, like across the spectrum, as many people are close to being submerged as those who already are, that would mean 60% of bottom tier borrowers are too poor to sell their homes (i.e. have less than 20% equity).

Mark Carney Smoke and Mirrors Warning of UK Housing Market Bubble Crash / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Mark 'Money Printing' Carney continued to put up a smoke screen of a UK housing market bubble that needs to burst as he acted to cover his and the Bank of England's backs for being the architects of the current UK housing bull market that continues to accelerate towards an average inflation rate of 10% per annum, which looks set to break to a new all time high within the next few months, whilst the London bubble already stands at a 20% premium to its 2007 bull market peak following waves of foreign buying that seek a safe haven from their own corrupt and always eager to steal the peoples wealth governments.

U.S. Homeowners Become Renters - Welcome to the Third World America / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Rubino

This morning’s housing report was huge. As one representative headline put it: “Housing starts up sharply; permits highest since 2008″.

Dig just a little deeper and it’s still huge, though in a different way. Turns out that all the increase was in apartment building, while single family homes — the linchpin of what used to be thought of as the American Dream — actually fell yet again. Here’s a brief but on-point analysis from the New York Times:

Are Homebuilder Stocks a Buy Ahead of the Spring? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Investment_U

David Becker writes: Homebuilding stocks are down nearly 5% so far in 2014, but as spring approaches, an increase in sales could just be the remedy these shares need. Unfortunately, homebuilders generally underperform in May and June, and higher housing prices and recent disappointing sales data could further erode the prices of homebuilder stocks.

The Mortgage Is Due for Fannie and Freddie / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: You can call it a bailout, a rakeover – I mean, takeover – or socialism for cash. It’s all that and more.

But, whatever you call it, it’s not going to last.

The $187.5 billion bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back in 2008 was absolutely necessary. Before you tell me I’m crazy, let me tell you why…

UK Housing Market Bubble Warnings Mainstream Media Mania / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The mainstream media has been busy this past week regurgitating on a near daily basis warnings of a UK housing market bubble from wide range of academic economics institutions despite the fact that the said institutions never saw the housing bull market coming.

Guardian - Three former chancellors warn of house price bubble

Pressure on the Bank of England and the chancellor to scale back the Help to Buy programme has risen after three former chancellors, including two Conservatives, warned that the scheme needed revision and might be fuelling a house price boom.

Profitable Investment Opportunities in a Fragile U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: The housing market continues to hold. But there are some warning signs. Famed investor Warren Buffett suggested the housing market was overvalued and due for an adjustment.

Now, while there are some indications of an overhyped housing market, I’m not convinced it’s bubble-like quite yet. But be warned: mortgage rates and interest rates are heading higher. This means it will become more expensive to finance mortgages going forward.

Fastest Rise in UK Mortgage Interest Rates for Over 2 Years / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Research from Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that the average rate charged on a two-year fixed rate mortgage (across all LTVs) increased by 0.09% in one month, the fastest increase in the average rate since February 2012 when it rose by 0.13%.   

The average two-year fixed rate increased on fourteen (70%) of the twenty business days in April. It fell just three times (15%). Anyone applying for a two-year fixed on 1 April would have been offered an average rate of 3.52%, but by 30 April it would have risen to 3.61%, or an additional £290.88 over the term for a mortgage of £250,000.

Profit Like a Real Estate Mogul Without Buying Property / Housing-Market / Housing Stocks

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon III writes: With a 37% gain in The Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX) since late July, we've done really well with our targeted investment in real estate.

And with very quick gains of 9% in BRF SA (NYSE ADR: BRFS), 5.2% in South American agricultural play Adecoagro SA (NYSE: AGRO) and 1.6% in high-tech agribusiness player Neogen Corp. (Nasdaq: NEOG), we're doing well with our plays on (pockets of) accelerating U.S. inflation.

Why U.S. Housing Market Has Stalled — And Why Everything Else Will Follow / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Rubino

It’s not easy being a mainstream economist. You spend your life building models that become your professional identity. And when those models fail to describe and predict reality, you’re left wondering about the meaning of it all.

The latest case in point is US housing. Keynesian economic models say that if you lower mortgage rates you get more houses bought, sold and built. A nice, simple piece of cause and effect. But today’s mortgage rates are at levels that would have incited a buying frenzy a generation ago, employment is rising — and home sales, home building and mortgage originations are all flat-lining.

US Housing Market Is Down For The Count / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Recent news, graphs and data confirm what we have long said would inevitably become clear: the entire global economy appears to have “functioned” through an orgy of refinancing, LBO and M&A lately. That is to say, zombie money has been enthusiastically slushed and re-slushed around to provide commissions, bonuses etc. to bankers and brokers, a process enabled by central bank and government policies in which large amounts of credit were thrown against the wall like so much Jello, hoping – but not demanding – that some would stick. Zero bound interest rates made this process all the more attractive, since it was crucial to lure mom and pop back in. But now, if our eyes don’t receive us, it is reaching its inherent limits. And that’s going to hurt something bad.

Fed Follies, U.S. Housing Market Fiasco / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: LewRockwell

So far we have experienced 7 million foreclosures. Beyond that there are still 9 million homeowners seriously underwater on their mortgages and there are millions more who are stranded in place because they don’t have enough positive equity to cover transactions costs and more stringent down payment requirements.

And that’s before the next downturn in housing prices—a development which will show up any day. In fact, another downward plunge is a positive certainty now that the buy-to-rent LBO speculators are rapidly pulling out of those “flash” bull markets in Arizona, California, Los Vegas, Florida and elsewhere. The latter were merely short-lived price eruptions which were an artifact of the Fed’s free money policies.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Nationwide woke up today to the UK house prices boom underway by reporting that its HP inflation index had risen by 9.5% over the past 12 months to stand at £180,264 as average UK house prices home in on breaking their 2007 peak (-3%), something that London achieved over a year ago having since galloped ahead to stand at an average price of £362,699 which is more than 20% above its 2007 peak.
