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.

If Shiller’s Chart Is Right US Housing Market Has 50% to Fall: BubbleOmics Disagrees / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Andrew_Butter

The Allure of Real Estate / Housing-Market / US Housing

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.

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.

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.

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).
