Canada’s Housing Market – Boom Or Bust? / Housing-Market / Canada

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBank of Canada may be ahead of all its peers in ensuring its banks meet the Basel capital requirements. And it may have done a better job in regulating the banking sector, but they are not innocent of allowing bubbles in Canada to form.  Even Mark Carney feels that the housing market is overheated. Carney made recent comments about the health of Canadian banks.

As for Canada's banks, Carney said they may have some exposure to record household debt levels and the overheated housing market, but he noted that high-risk mortgages are insured by the federal government.

The Canadian real estate housing bubble still seems to get inflated in some major cities like Toronto.

Will Speculators Rescue the U.S. Housing Market? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the housing bubble burst there was sympathy for first-time home-buyers who had been enticed in by the easy loans and rising home prices and wound up in trouble.

But investors in single family homes came to be castigated as ‘flippers’, ‘suckers’, and worse. They had played a significant role in creating the bubble, signing contracts, often on multiple homes, making virtually no down payments, not intending to ever live in or even rent out the homes, but to simply flip them for a quick profit. Builders could hardly keep up with demand for a while, but wound up with wastelands of partially completed developments and condo projects, especially in the sun-belt states.

U.S. Housing Market Good News Keeps Rolling In / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Positive Housing News Keeps Rolling In," exclaimed the headline of a July 24, 2012, Wall Street Journal story by Steven Russolillo. The author found much to praise. One gloomy Gus could not help but conclude otherwise. Old Gus holds the house market at bay, one reason being the great unknown of what will happen to house prices when Fannie and Freddie are no more. The GSEs (Government Sponsored Enterprises) are still a massive presence in the home mortgage market. Their full faith is due to the implicit U.S. government guarantee.

U.S. Housing Market: Share of Underwater Homes Trending Down / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

The recovery of the housing market is another major concern of the Fed in addition to the labor market. Three years of economic recovery is yet to result in a meaningful turnaround of the housing sector. One of the pressing issues is the prevalence of home mortgages with negative equity. Negative equity (often referred to as homes with underwater mortgages) means that homes are worth less than what borrowers owe on their mortgages.
