U.S. Housing Sector Needs a Supportive Nudge / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSales of existing homes, inclusive of condos, fell 3.0% in September to an annual rate of 5.03 million units after an 8.4% increase in August. Sales of existing single-family homes dropped 3.6% to an annual rate of 4.47 million units in September vs. a 9.0% jump in August. As Chart 1 indicates, sales of existing homes are far from the peak registered in 2005 and are very close to cycle lows seen in 2008 (The wide swings in home sales in 2009-10 are related to the temporary first-time home buyer credit program).

A Decade of Household Deleveraging? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

The recent trend of consumer spending is lackluster and, in fact, worrisome such that Chairman Bernanke has mentioned it in speeches over the past month. Real disposable personal income has posted a meager 0.3% gain in August 2011 (see Chart 1) and consumer spending shows a noticeably decelerating trend. The obvious reply to answers about the reasons for soft growth in consumer spending is related to lack of hiring.

U.S. House Prices, Expect Lower Lows / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCash is still king. Cash is king because non-cash is a commoner and a loser…it’s losing its value. An article in the Financial Times, for example, tells that:

Case-Shiller Home Price Index - Noteworthy Improvement, But Durability is Uncertain / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe seasonally adjusted Case-Shiller Home Price Index held steady in July, matching the readings of the prior two months. These readings are a significant improvement after the string of declines of home prices seen for an extended period (see Chart 1). The gains in 2009 and 2010 are related to the first-home buyer program which was in place only for a short period. The encouraging news is that the FHFA House Price Index shows price gains for each of the four months ended July and the Core Logic House Price Index posted increases in three out of the last four months.

Sales of Existing U.S. Homes Recover, But Level Still Close to Recession Low / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSales of all existing homes rose 7.7% to an annual rate of 5.03 million units. Single-family unit sales were stronger (+8.5%). Regionally, sales of existing homes increased in all four regions, with the nearly 19% jump in the West as the largest gain. From a year ago, sales of existing single-family homes have posted double-digit gains in July and August because of a base effect. Sales of existing homes in July-August 2010 fell sharply after the first-time home buyer credit program expired. Therefore, the year-to-year comparisons partly exaggerate the trend of existing homes sales.

U.S. Home Construction Declines, Permits Post a Small Gain / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Construction of new homes and apartments fell 5.0% to an annual rate of 571,000 during August after a 2.3% drop in the prior month. Starts of both multi-family (-13.5%) and single-family starts (-1.4%) fell in August. The disappointing news is that the level of housing starts continues to hover at recession lows. The nearly 30% drop of housing starts in the Northeast and a 3.3% drop in the South brought down the headline, while housing starts rose in the Midwest (+2.6%) and West (+2.2%).

U.S. Pending Home Sales Index Slips in July / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) of the National Association of Realtors fell 1.3% in July, after two monthly gains.  The PHSI leads actual sales of existing homes by 1-2 months.  The July drop of the index bodes poorly for actual sales of homes in August and September.  Sales of existing homes have posted declines in three out of the four months ended July.  The level of existing home sales is close to recession lows even after two years of economic recovery.

U.S. Housing Market Rebound Unlikely Anytime Soon / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: Dragged down by such anchors as a bulging pipeline of foreclosures and a dearth of buyers, it will be many more months - if not years - before a housing market rebound takes hold.

Symptoms of the limping U.S. economy, primarily an unemployment rate above 9% and weak consumer confidence, along with much stricter lending rules, have helped keep buyers scarce.
