By: MISES

Fred Buzzeo writes: Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese days everyone is sitting at the edge of their seats waiting for a real-estate recovery. Indeed, during the past ten years, everyone has become a real-estate addict. It is hard for me to walk down the street without someone telling me that the market has "hit bottom" or that the market is on the "rebound."

Why Falling U.S. House Prices 2011 Will Not Stall U.S. Economic Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: U.S. housing prices still have further to fall -perhaps a lot further.

In fact, depending upon the circumstances, the additional price declines could be quite steep.

But here's the shocker: That decline won't necessarily cause a "double-dip" recession.

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe current recession/recovery phase has many records for history books. Here is another one. In the post-war period, the housing market nearly always led the economic recovery. Housing market troughs, as measured by the trough of real residential investment expenditures, occurred prior to the onset of the overall economic recovery.

U.S. Housing Market Update, Affordability Index, Pending Home Sales Index / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Home prices and mortgage rates are at historical lows, which makes homes most affordable.  In fact, the Housing Affordability Index of the National Association of Realtors scaled a record high mark in October - 184.2 (see Chart 1).  Historically, readings above 120 have been viewed as a seller's market.  The chain of economic events of the past three years has modified this perception and the housing market is currently a buyer's market.  However, buyers do not have the wherewithal to take advantage of the sweet spot in the housing market with affordable homes and low mortgage rates.

Strength in Residential Construction Spending is Entirely from Improvements / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Residential construction outlays increased 2.5% in October after a 0.6% gain in September. The headline number is impressive and the increase in residential construction outlays should add to GDP growth in the fourth quarter. However, it should be noted that the entire gain of these outlays in October was from home improvements and not from new residential construction (see Chart 3).

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe idea that "a man's house is his castle" is attributed to American Revolutionary James Otis from 1761, and his idea was that government should never be permitted to breach its walls.

U.S. House Prices, Tip of Iceberg of Housing Market Woes / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe seasonally adjusted Case-Shiller Price Index fell 0.8% in September after a 0.5% drop in August.  In the third quarter, house prices, as measured by the Case-Shiller Price Index have dropped 3.4% after a 2.6% gain in the prior quarter.  From a year ago, this price index declined 1.5%.  The house price picture is disappointing and worrisome.  The brief gain in house prices in the second quarter reflects the impact of the first-time home buyer program much like the situation in 2009 when the program was put in place (see Chart 1).

By: Asha_Bangalore

Housing starts fell 11.7% to an annual rate of 519,000, reflecting a 43.5% drop in starts of multi-family units and a 1.1% drop in single-family units to an annual rate of 431,000.  Single-family starts have essentially held nearly steady for four straight months (see chart 3).  The decline in multi-family starts was the culprit behind the weak headline reading.  Multi-family starts are highly volatile and do not speak for the underlying trend of homebuilding activity.
