Evolving Global Financial Crisis, Selling "Foreclosed Homes" / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe government is preparing to package and sell foreclosed homes. We do not know what discount to the current market there will be but you can guess it will be 20% or more. This event will cause home prices to trend lower dependent on whether the houses are put up for sale or rented. These homes will only be available to big buyers such as hedge funds and others with enormous amounts of capital. It is expected that the homes will be sold in lots of 5,000 to 10,000 and the minimum bid would be $1 billion. This is corporatist fascists busy at work.

In response, I shared my opinion: "Would you pay the current market price to live there even if its value never increased?" If the answer is yes, buy the property." Essentially, is the house worth it as a home, not as an investment?

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.
