The ‘Catastrophic Change’ in the U.S. Real Estate Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe learned today (9/22/10) from our illustrious US government that new housing starts jumped 10.5% in August. Don’t get exited. Almost all of the gain was from apartment construction. This month-over-month burst in activity is still 9% below last year’s level. Nevertheless, the recession has been declared dead, the stock market has appreciated every day since the conclusion of Bernanke’s August Jackson Hole, Wyoming meeting, and the government needs affirmation of both events. But like most people with a functioning brain cell, I have eyes and ears. Here are my observations on real estate from my little vantage point.

U.S. Housing Market and its Future / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: David_Urban

So much has been written about the housing market and its overall effects on the economy so I will not spend much time here. 

Without dating myself the S&L crisis was partially solved through the removal of bad loans from the balance sheet of banks, the repackaging of said bad loans, and selling them off in tranches to investors.

Surge in Housing Supply Will Drive Down U.S. House Prices / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHome ownership has become an albatross. Prices are falling, demand is weak, foreclosures have skyrocketed, and inventory is backed up to the moon. If there's an upside, it's hard to see.

Everyone who bought a house in the last 6 or 7 years knows that he was fleeced by bankers who were pushing "fishwrap" mortgage paper to line their own pockets. Prices did not reflect the underlying supply/demand fundamentals as much as they exposed the massive mortgage laundering operation that was taking place in the shadow banking system. Hedge fund sharpies and other speculators walked away with billions while credulous homeowners were lashed to an anvil and tossed in the East River.

China’s Housing Bull Market Built on $15 Trillion In Home Equity / Housing-Market / China Economy

By: Mario_Cavolo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent United States home mortgage debt: $15 trillion. Current China home equity: $15 trillion. Mortgage debt on those homes? Zero. It is easy to suggest that this insight, which reveals a $30 trillion spread between U.S. home mortgage debt and Chinese home equity, better enables us to grasp the underlying forces impacting the economic power shift we are seeing from West to East. While it might be in vogue these days to criticize the United States for being built on a mountain of debt, I’d rather not. Let’s first take a moment to remember the positive effect the world over which the judicious and reasonable use of debt has had over the past 50 years.

Zero Down Mortgages Restarted by the Biggest Subprime Lender in Town - Fannie / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Trader_Mark

Good news folks... the "no skin in the game" mortgage is back.  You know the game right?  It's a one sided bet where the buyer can only win.  If the house goes up, you pocket that and hopefully get that granite countertop you so deserve with the home equity.  If it doesn't go up.... you walk - but only after living in the home rent free for at least 18-22 months as you strategically default your way to a mountain of savings while waiting for the sheriff to show up.  If you are smart you can save at least $30K during this time.  There are no losers here (except the U.S. taxpayer).  [Jan 5, 2010: WSJ - The Treasury Department's Christmas Eve Masscare of the US Taxpayer]  [Feb 1, 2010: 2 Graphs Showing Part of the Reason for the Christmas Eve Taxpayer Massacre] [May 12, 2010: [Video] Are Losses at Fannie and Freddie Now "National Policy"?]

Britains Population Growth and Ageing Demographics Impact on UK House Prices / Housing-Market / Demographics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe long-term battle being played in the UK housing market is that of new build supply always trying to play catchup with ever increasing demand as a consequence of the UK's growing population and changing demographics which is set against many other developed countries that are either experiencing falling populations such as Germany or have ample space to build far beyond that demanded as a consequence of population growth such as the United States. Therefore this analysis as part of a series on the UK housing market seeks to gauge the likely impact of population growth and demographics on UK house prices over the next 10 years.

Should You Buy a House Now? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: David_Galland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Galland, Managing Editor, The Casey Report writes: Recently, we have had a number of queries about real estate. And no wonder. For starters, real estate prices have come down. Plus, in an environment with next to zero interest rates, the idea of possibly picking up some income-producing property on the cheap holds a certain appeal to some. Then there’s the fact that real estate is very much a “tangible” – and so should hold up reasonably well, should the fiat currency system come undone, as we expect it will before this crisis is over.

Double-Dip Recession Deepens as U.S. Housing Market Collapses / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Larson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Double-Dip recession I’ve been predicting for some time is deepening. And nowhere is the emergence of this powerful economic force more clear than in the housing market.

All the fresh economic data confirms that home sales are weakening … home inventories are rising … and home price pressure is building.

U.S. Housing Sales Slump Whilst China's Boom / Housing-Market / US Housing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’m back in Montana for a short visit and I am really enjoying my time here.

I’ve hiked around two of my very favorite spots in the world, Jewell Basin area of the Flathead National Forest and Glacier National Park, and even picked a couple buckets of wild huckleberries. Fortunately, I did not run into any grizzly bears, but I didn’t see Huckleberry Hound either.

Little Hope for the U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Just when you thought the housing market couldn't get worse, it did.

New single-family home sales slumped 12.4% in July to a record-low annual rate of 276,000 units, as homebuyers shunned their realtors in the absence of government support. The consensus expectation was for a slight up-tick to a 333,000 unit annual rate, so I suppose it's time to throw out the models. Sales over the prior three months were also revised lower by 9,000 units.

U.S. Home Sales Drop 27% In July And Things Are Only Going To Get Worse / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Pravda

The consensus among analysts was that we would see a drop of around 13 percent, so when the 27 percent figure was announced it sent a shock through world financial markets.

By: Barry_Grey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSales of existing US homes in July plunged by a record 27.2 percent from the previous month, according to a report released Tuesday by the National Association of Realtors.

The virtual collapse in home sales affected every region of the country and was more than twice as bad as anticipated by economic analysts, who had forecast a drop of 12.1 percent. Sales fell to 3.83 million units, compared to June’s downwardly revised figure of 5.26 million.

Moribund U.S. Housing Market Threatens to Kill Economic Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: The weak housing market, which has traditionally led the U.S. economy out of recent recessions, this time may put an end to the economic recovery.

Existing home sales plummeted by a record 27% to their lowest level in 15 years in July and inventories soared, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) reported yesterday (Tuesday). Home re-sales, which account for 90% of the total market, dropped to an annual rate of 3.83 million in July. And inventories rose to 12.5 months from 8.9 months in June, putting them at their highest level in more than a decade.

U.S. Housing Market Holocaust, Existing Home Sales Crash / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Don't look now, but someone just pushed the housing market off a cliff. The National Association of Realtors announced on Tuesday that the sales of existing homes fell a staggering 27.2 percent to a seasonably adjusted rate of 3.83 million units. This is the lowest number of sales since 1995. The reaction on Wall Street has been swift, shares plunged in a wild sell-off that pushed stocks down more than 100 points in a matter of minutes. US Treasuries rallied on the news sending bond yields lower as jittery investors sought safety from the ongoing avalanche of dismal economic data. The 10-year slid to 2.49% while the 2 year note dipped to 0.46%. Bond yields are a gauge of investor pessimism. At present, confidence in the management of the economy is at its nadir.
