By: Asha_Bangalore

Starts of single-family units fell 22.5% in February to annual rate of 479,000, virtually identical to the 477,000 low seen in April 2009.  New construction for single-family units fell 11.8% to annual rate of 375,000 in February, which is close to the historical low of 360,000 registered in January 2009.  Essentially, construction of new homes has failed to rebound from historical lows despite a recovery that is seven quarters old.

China Housing Market Bubble Bust Could be Dubai X1000 / Housing-Market / China Economy

By: MISES

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article It's an eerily familiar story. Shortly before the American housing bubble burst, pundits across the globe argued that the world had reached a new plateau of economic growth, where the old rules of economics no longer applied — "this time it's different." The same has been said about the current boom in China, specifically with regards to its large degree of top-down state control over the economy, which somehow enables it to ignore the laws of economics.

Dubai Property Market Crash BubbleOmiX Update 2011 / Housing-Market / Middle East

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you drive out on the highway towards Abu Dhabi past the Jebel Ali Free Zone, look on the right and you will see, partly covered in sand, the remnants of the billboards that used to declare, “Where the Vision of Dubai Get’s Built”.

I met a guy who claimed to have come up with that tag-line. He was a young American, very nice and very-very smart, based in New York working for a big-name branding company, with absolutely no clue of what Dubai is/was about. But he was making really good money, and that’s fundamentally what everything is about, in Dubai.

Fannie and Freddie Reform: Too Little, Too Late / Housing-Market / Market Regulation

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid D'Amato writes: At the beginning of February, amidst Beltway budget clamoring and ahead of yesterday's statement from Bernanke, the Treasury issued a report to Congress announcing efforts to "wind down" Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The report, though conspicuously lacking in detail, sets forth three alternatives for reducing the role of the two government-backed companies, none of which actually prune the state's role in the housing market. Whatever route Congress decides to take, the fundamental problems that bedevil the present framework and caused the housing bubble (and resultant financial calamity) are left unaltered.

By: Asha_Bangalore

Construction spending fell 0.7% in January after a 1.6% drop in the prior month.  During January, the 5.3% jump in residential construction spending was largely due to home improvements (+10.5%, see Chart 7), with new construction of single family-units (+0.9%) posting a small gain and that of multi-family units declining (-2.9%).  Non-residential private sector construction spending posted a significant drop (-6.9%).

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) of the National Association of Realtors fell 2.8% to 88.9 in January, after 3.2% drop in December.  These back-to-back monthly declines bode poorly for sales of existing homes in the near term.  The PHSI has a 1-2 month lead on actual sales of existing homes.  Sales of existing homes rose 2.7% in January.

Commercial Real Estate No Longer the U.S. Economy's Achilles Heel / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

U.S. Mortgage Crisis: Where Does The Homeowner Stand? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Stephen_Merrill

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past several years, the real estate industry in the United States has undergone a near collapse. House prices have been reduced so far by 25% nationwide due to the bursting of real estate bubble. The only vibrant part of the real estate market in the present economic recovery is the millions of foreclosed homes being sold to bargain hunters.

Some smaller States, the Dakotas, Nebraska, Alaska, have managed to avoid a big downturn in prices and hope to continue to do so. The big States most affected by the real estate disaster though, California, Michigan, Nevada, Florida, have lost more than one-half on home values in many major cities.
