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.

U.S. Housing Market Overview / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe real estate market continues to show little signs of life. Despite record-low mortgage rates and a collapse in home prices, builders see little demand for new homes due to the record-high overhang of existing homes on the market, including the record-high level of foreclosed properties (4.29% of all active loans) which have continued to gain most attention from buyers due to much lower prices.

Even more disturbing is that the fact new foreclosures are outpacing foreclosure sales by a factor of 3 to 1. This means that the existing home inventory due to foreclosures is growing by 3 times the rate of foreclosure sales.

By: Dan_Amerman

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn gold terms, an average single family home in the United States can now be purchased for only 18% of its pre-bubble price in 2001.   The term "pre-bubble" merits emphasis:  the average house can be purchased at an 82% discount (in ounces of gold) not from the peak real estate values of 2006, but the much lower home prices of 2001, before the real estate bubble began.

Total housing starts fell slightly (-0.3%) to an annual rate of 628,000 in October.

Starts of single-family units stood at 430,000 in October 2011 vs. 353,000 in March 2009 (historical low).

U.S. Mortgage Crisis Goes Primetime / Housing-Market / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Downs writes: A near-death experience often provides needed perspective to effectuate real change. But no matter how often the over-regulated and over-subsidized US banking sector flirts with disaster, it never seems to change its ways.

Three years have gone by since subprime mortgage exposure threw the financial system into cardiac arrest. Experienced analysts are under no illusions about the progress since then: the banks are still not eating right and they're certainly not slimming down. It seems these institutions feel trapped by their situation and are just waiting for the inevitable. This month, the PrimeX group of indices, a measure that quantifies the likelihood of default in prime residential and commercial mortgages, began flashing red.

Sales of New U.S. Homes Rose in September, But Trend is Unimpressive / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSales of new single-family homes rose 5.7% to an annual rate of 309,000 in September, the second highest level for the year after the 316,000 mark seen in April.  The picture is less impressive when we put things in a historical perspective.  The 3-month moving average of existing home sales at 302,000 has held nearly steady since mid-2010 (see Chart 1) after the first-time home buyer program expired.
