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.

Strength in Residential Construction Spending is Entirely from Improvements / Housing-Market / US Housing

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).

The Rise and Fall of the U.S. Home Ownership Myth / Housing-Market / US Housing

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. It is a good thought, in context, one that sums up a dogged attachment to the right of private property.

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).

Australia's Housing Bubble Illustrates All Governments Intervening to Delay Inevitable Bust / Housing-Market / Austrailia

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past three years have been dominated by government intervention …

The U.S. propped up the banks with TARP money, and then gave banks ultra-easy money terms to recapitalize. And to unfreeze the global credit markets, the U.S. provided unlimited dollar swap lines with global central banks.

U.S. Housing Market Continues to Rot, No Rebound in 2011 / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: The year of 2010 saw very little improvement in the housing sector, and that's not likely to change in 2011.

The industry's weaknesses - high unemployment, tight credit, ineffectual government programs, soaring inventories, plunging prices, and so on - are simply too gaping to be resolved by next year.

U.S. Housing Market Starts Were Unimpressive in October / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Housing starts fell 11.7% to an annual rate of 519,000, reflecting a 43.5% drop in starts of multi-family units and a 1.1% drop in single-family units to an annual rate of 431,000.  Single-family starts have essentially held nearly steady for four straight months (see chart 3).  The decline in multi-family starts was the culprit behind the weak headline reading.  Multi-family starts are highly volatile and do not speak for the underlying trend of homebuilding activity.

UK House Prices 2011 and Beyond / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Tim_Waring

In 2007 we saw the images of Northern Rock customers queuing on the streets to withdraw their funds. It seemed that finally the exuberance in the housing market was going to be deflated. Three years on and this has not happened to any really significant extent. Up until recently, I have been waiting for the monthly data from various sources to show an accelerating rate of falls. In reality, the market has traded sideways at a level just below the all time peak. When markets do not do what you expect them to you eventually have to ask why.

UK House Prices Overvalued, So Where's the Crash? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Tim_Waring

It is fairly unanimous that houses in the UK are over-priced - 30% according to The Economist. I have been a long term bear for a decade as by every measure such as income, yield etc they seemed well due for a much greater correction than has occurred.

U.S. Mortgagegate Scandal Puts Taxpayers into the Title-Insurance Business / Housing-Market / US Housing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: U.S. taxpayers already own pieces of such problem-plagued companies as General Motors Corp., Chrysler LLC, American International Group Inc. (NYSE: AIG), Fannie Mae (OTC: FNMA) and Freddie Mac (OTC: FMCC). Now the increasingly problematic "Mortgagegate" saga could land American taxpayers in the trouble-ridden title-insurance business.

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am in New York this afternoon attending and speaking at the Bank Credit Analyst Conference. I have to say that the panel on emerging markets gave me some real food for thought and an idea or two for a future e-letter. I have been a fan of emerging markets in general (with some exceptions) for some time but I should become even more so I think.

U.S. Housing Subprime Mortgage Market Securitization Debacle, They Knew What They Were Selling / Housing-Market / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Subprime Debacle: Act 2, Part 2
They Knew What They Were Selling
Warning to Mr. Robert Rubin and Management
Popping Through
It's Time for Some Putback Payback
The Worst Deal of the Decade?

At the end of last week's letter on the whole mortgage foreclosure mess, I wrote:
"All those subprime and Alt-A mortgages written in the middle of the last decade? They were packaged and sold in securities. They have had huge losses. But those securities had representations and warranties about what was in them. And guess what, the investment banks may have stretched credibility about those warranties. There is the real probability that the investment banks that sold them are going to have to buy them back. We are talking the potential for multiple hundreds of billions of dollars in losses that will have to be eaten by the large investment banks. We will get into details, but it could create the potential for some banks to have real problems."

The Mortgage Securitization Scam / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe foreclosure crisis has set its sights on MERS, the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, which files almost all of the foreclosure actions in behalf of lenders. The problem never anticipated by lenders is that the company has no legal standing to do such things. In addition they broke the law by not requiring a notarized document of transfer of title signed by the seller and buyer. That is because they did not own the loans.
