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.

U.S. Housing Bear Market Resumes in 2011 / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn oft-repeated maxim is that real estate is one of the best long-term investments. For the better part of the last 60 years or so this certainly held true. In a typical “long wave” or 60-year Kress cycle, real estate benefits almost from the start of the inflationary leg of the long wave and prices tend to increase even after the 60-year cycle of inflation/deflation peaks, and real estate prices can continue to increase in the ensuing dis-inflationary years of the cycle. It’s mainly during the final “hard down” part of the cycle -- which is defined as the final 8-12% of the cycle -- that the real estate market struggles under the weight of deflation.

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSales of new single-family homes increased 17.5% to an annual rate of 329,000 in December after holding steady during November.  The magnitude of the jump in sales of new homes is impressive but it is important to note that home sales are recovering from a historically low level.  Sales of new single family homes stood at an annual rate of 280,000 in November, which is close to the historical low of 274,000 recorded for August 2010.  Putting things in perspective, the peak of new home sales was 1.389 million home and it occurred in July 2005.

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Case-Shiller Home Price Index fell 0.5% in November marking the fifth consecutive monthly price decline following gains in the each of the three months of the second quarter.  On a year-over-year basis, the index has declined 1.6% in November after a 0.8% drop in October.  Moving back in time, the Case-Shiller Home Price Index posted year-to-year gains in each month during the February-September 2010 period, reflecting the positive influence of the first-time home buyer credit program.

U.S. Housing Market into the 2020's / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom time to time we have been reviewing the historical housing market index, provided by Case-Shiller, in an attempt to identify historical patterns. Since the historical index is not provided in nominal terms (inflation included), but real terms (inflation excluded), this has been a difficult task. Everything we track, in OEW terms, is quoted in nominal prices. After several attempts over the past few years we feel we have identified enough historical patterns to offer an educated projection for the US housing market going forward. We present the history of US housing prices using a chart courtesy of Steve Barry/Barry Ritholtz. This chart displays the past 120 years of US existing home prices in real terms, with a dashed line forecast by Robert Shiller of Case-Shiller.

U.S. Housing Starts Decline in December, But 2010 Closes With a Few Positives / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStarts of new homes fell 4.3% to an annual rate of 529,000 in December.  Although builders broke ground for the construction of new multi-family units (+18%) in December, single-family starts declined 9% to an annual rate of 417,000.  The level of housing starts is close to historical lows (see Chart 1) and the January Home Builders Survey (Composite index has held steady for three straight months) suggests that builders are not optimistic about the near term outlook for home building activity.

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere has been a kind of pause in house price angst in USA over the past year, the “good news” is that “only” one million homes were physically repossessed in 2010 which is about the same as 2009.

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.

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.
