By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMuch like housing starts, existing home sales also posted a small gain in March.  But, the bottom line is that housing starts and existing home sales are hovering close to cycle lows and sustained gains to push readings noticeably above cycle lows have not occurred, as yet.  New home sales numbers for March will be published on April 25, 2011.

U.S. Housing Market Foreclosure Chinese Water Torture / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe real-estate bust continues at a pace akin to Chinese water torture. Home prices peaked five years ago, but a mountain of foreclosures still looms. RealtyTrac reports that filings rose 7 percent in March from the previous month but are down 35 percent from March of last year, when RealtyTrac recorded the highest number of default filings since the company started in boom-time 2005. Foreclosure filings for the entire first quarter fell to a three-year low.

U.S. Housing Market Starts, Small Gain, But is Step in Right Direction / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Housing starts rose 7.2% to an annual rate of 549,000 in March following an 18.5% drop in the prior month.  In the first quarter, total housing starts have risen at an annualized pace of 23.2%.  Single-family starts moved up 7.7% to an annual rate of 422,000 in March.  However, on a quarterly basis, starts of single-family units have dropped nearly 18%, which indicates that the entire gain in the first quarter came from multi-family starts.  These numbers suggest that residential investment expenditure most likely made a small positive contribution to real GDP in the first quarter.  The current level of housing starts is still down nearly 77% from the peak reading in January 2006 (1.823 million units).

Why are they bouncing? Why not?  We went down and people love to buy those dips and that means they are just going to love this chart, courtesy of Barry Ritholtz's team.  We don't get our next Case-Shiller data point until the 26th but we did get mortgage applications this week and they are down ANOTHER 6.7%.  This is despite the fact that an average 30-year mortgage is still just 4.98%.

Falling U.S. House Prices Could Restrain Economic Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With the latest data pointing to a double-dip in home prices, it has become increasingly clear that the wobbly economic recovery won't be getting any help from the housing sector.

Existing home sales in February sank 9.6% from the previous month, while prices fell 5.2% to a median of $156,000, the lowest since April 2002. Existing homes comprise 90% of the housing market.

U.S. Housing Market Will Remain a Government Program / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Neeraj_Chaudhary

Recently, the Obama Administration seemed to flash a rare sign of laissez-faire thinking when it issued a report calling for the "winding down" of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two taxpayer-guaranteed institutions now responsible for backing at least 90% of the US mortgage market. In its press release, the Administration acknowledged that the private sector should be the "primary source of mortgage credit," and that their goal is to "bring private capital back to the mortgage market."

U.S. Housing Market Continues to Bleed / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

The collapse in housing prices is gaining pace proving that the Fed's bond purchasing program (QE2) has been an utter failure. While liquidity sloshes around in the equities markets, the distress on Main Street is more excruciating than ever. The release of the Case-Shiller index of property values on Tuesday, confirmed analysts worst fears, that the decline in prices is accelerating on the downside further weakening household balance sheets, wiping out precious home equity, and thrusting working class families back into the red.

Brazil's Housing Carnival Stokes Bubble Worries / Housing-Market / Brazil

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre we in the early to mid stages of a bubble forming in Brazilian real estate?   Who can tell - with the global liquidity tsunami gushing in every direction, there has to be other areas other than commodities where dislocations are forming.  I found this interesting piece while looking over the news for Brazilian homebuilder Gafisa (GFA). While the "mass" mortgage market is still relatively new in Brazil - hence a whole slew of new potential buyers can now enter the market - some of the anecdotes in this Reuters story are eerily similar to those in the U.S. circa 2005.

Economic Depression in America: U.S. Housing Markets Double Dip / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

The housing market is now in full retreat. This week, the Commerce Department reported that sales of new homes plunged nearly 17 percent in February to a 250,000 annual pace. That's a record low. At the same time, the median price fell 8.9 percent from February of last year. The news comes on the heels of Monday's equally-dismal report that showed existing home sales dropped 9.6 percent in February. These are Depression era stats and builders know it which is why they're unloading homes as cheaply as possible. It's been 5 years since housing prices peaked in July 2006, and the market is still nowhere near the bottom. In fact, the rate of decline is accelerating. This is shaping up to be the worst spring in history.

Housing Market Double Dip and Economic Growth / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic data continues to reinforce the reality that a housing double dip has in fact begun. Were it not for the 2010 tax credits there would likely have just been one dip and we would be further along the process of clearing supply than we are today. Regardless, it is here and the question then becomes what, if any impact will it have on economic growth.

U.S. Housing Starts Plunge in February, Outlook Remains Gloomy / Housing-Market / US Housing

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.

How Real Estate Came to Own Us / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCheap money, buyer tax incentives, lack of new supply, nothing seems to keep home prices elevated. The Standard & Poor's/Case-Shiller Home Price Index fell 1 percent in December. Prices fell in every market excepting Washington, DC, where the business of doing the people's business continues to expand seemingly without end.

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.

U.S. Housing Market Developments Suggest Persistent Unease / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Mortgage Bankers Association's Mortgage Purchase Index moved up 12.5% to 194.4 during the week ended March 4.  On a monthly basis, the Mortgage Purchase Index has declined 3.3% in February following a nearly 8.0% drop in January.  Of late, the link between mortgage applications for purchases of homes and actual sales appears to be weak (see Chart 1).  Combined sales of homes rose slightly in January [Sales of existing homes advanced in January (+2.7%), while sales of new homes plunged (-12.6%)].

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.
