By: Ellen_Brown

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeventeen states have now introduced bills for state-owned banks, and others are in the works.  Hawaii’s innovative state bank bill addresses the foreclosure mess.  County-owned banks are being proposed that would tackle the housing crisis by exercising the right of eminent domain on abandoned and foreclosed properties.  Arizona has a bill that would do this for homeowners who are current in their payments but underwater, allowing them to refinance at fair market value.

Obama's Housing Market Refi Program Won't Work Because the FHA is Insolvent / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: In his State of the Union address last month, President Barack Obama outlined a plan to let homeowners, especially those underwater, refinance older mortgages to take advantage of today's low rates.

While serious political impediments stand in the way of the Obama refi plan, one reason it won't work is that it relies 100% on the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).

Arbitraging Fed Policies With U.S. Rental Housing Market Cash Flows / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Dan_Amerman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy forcing interest rates to record low levels, the Federal Reserve has effectively vaporized most interest income along with most of the ability to benefit from compound interest, with devastating results for many retirees, retirement investors and pension funds. 

However, in the process of creating artificially low interest rates for an entire economy, the Fed has also opened up unusually profitable opportunities for individual investors with certain types of investments.  Record-low interest rate levels are the most powerful of six different factors that are currently working together to increase owner cash flows from the purchase (or refinancing) of investment real estate in the United States.

The Next U.S. Housing Market Bailout / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy are housing prices falling when the number of houses on the market continues to decline? Usually, when supply shrinks, then prices rise, right? So, why isn’t that happening now?

The reason is that housing market never completely cleared, which is to say that the Fed’s interventions and the manipulation of inventory by the banks prevented the market from finding a bottom. So, now– a full 6 years after the peak in home sales in 2006–the real estate depression continues while prices drift lower still. And–here’s the bad part–no one knows how much farther prices will drop, because the existing inventory of homes on the market (according to the Wall Street Journal) is presently 1.89 million while the shadow inventory (according to CoreLogic)… is “1.6 million units” which represents another 5 months supply, “the same level as reported in July 2011.”

Demand Outweighs UK Mortgage Choice / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Moneyfacts research of the residential mortgage market reveals the choice of mortgages on offer has increased from 2,527 to 3,180 over the last 12 months. At the peak of the banking crisis in 2009, the number of mortgages fell to just 1,209.

The increase in numbers came despite a combination of rises and falls across the range of the loan-to-value tiers. Today, the 60% loan-to-value tier offers the most choice but the high deposit required limits its attraction.

U.S. Housing Market Foreclosure-to-Rental Screwjob / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFederal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke wants US taxpayers to purchase more of the garbage loans and mortgage-backed securities (MBS) that the big banks still have on their books. (Cash for trash) That’s the impetus behind the Fed’s 26-page white paper that was delivered to Congress last Wednesday. The document outlines the Fed’s plan for ‘stabilizing the housing market’, which is a phrase that Bernanke employs when he wants to provide more buy-backs, giveaways, subsidies and other corporate welfare to big finance.

Hidden Mortgage Tax Gives Congress Another Way to Pick Your Pocket / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Americans had better enjoy the extra $40 they'll continue to get in their biweekly paychecks for the next two months, because most of them will be paying for it many times over in the form of higher mortgage costs.

Lost in the contentious debate over the payroll tax cut extension - a 2% cut in U.S. workers' Social Security tax - was the devious way Congress devised to pay for it.
