Government Plays Dr Seuss By Artificially Propping Up House Prices / Housing-Market / Government Intervention

By: David_Vaughn

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver notice how those books at home on your shelves seems to grow higher and higher over the years? I noticed the same thing myself and decided to weed out the old books that no longer seemed worthwhile to keep. Among those dusty books I discovered were books that I read to my child just a few “short” years ago. The Tonka truck book, the book about trains and ships, Yertle the Turtle, Dr. Seuss.

UK House Price Crash of Summer 2008 / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe latest UK house price data as released by Rightmove shows that the UK housing market crash continues to accelerate by registering a fall of 1.8% for July 08. The rate of descent on an annualised basis now extends to -11% and on a quarterly basis to -6.7%, far above the originally forecast crash rate of 5% per quarter as per analysis of November 2007 for the quarter April to June 08, which came in at -5.8%. The housing market is in full panic selling mode, as property owners slashing prices are met with silence from potential home buyers.

Fed Asks for Blank Check for Fannie and Freddie in Flawed Rescue Plan / Housing-Market / Government Intervention

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fed's emergency rescue plan for the financial markets is hopelessly flawed. It's a scattershot approach that doesn't address the real source of the problem; an unregulated, unsustainable structured finance system that emerged in full-force after 2000 and spawned a shadow banking system that creates trillions of dollars of credit without sufficient capital reserves. This is the heart of the problem and it needs to be debated openly. The present system doesn't work; it's as simple as that. It makes no sense to provide trillions of dollars of taxpayer money to shore up a system that is essentially dysfunctional. It's just throwing money down a rat-hole.

Protecting Mortgage Giants from Slingshots / Housing-Market / Government Intervention

By: Doug_Wakefield

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhether he intended to or not, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson's statements, in a July 15th Bloomberg article titled, “Paulson Sees Fannie, Freddie Share Purchase Only If Necessary,” show the weakness of our current financial markets.

“Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ‘represent the only functioning secondary mortgage market,' Paulson said in written testimony today to the Senate Banking Committee. ‘Our plan is aimed at supporting the stability of financial markets, not just these two companies.'”

Solution to the Current Crisis- Dissolve Fannie And Freddie / Housing-Market / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Joseph_Brusuelas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Chinese symbol for crisis also can be expressed as an opportunity. The current collapse of confidence in the domestic system of finance and financial leadership provides such a potential moment. The three part proposal to rescue Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has bestowed upon our political and economic leaders the responsibility of ensuring that no one company again becomes too big too fail. The crisis requires more than the avoidance of moral hazards. Rather, the solution to the current financial crises and its legislative response requires that no firm or enterprise ever again be permitted to obtain an implicit guarantee of Federal largesse. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac need to be taken under federal protection, its assets used to cover the risk of the taxpayer bailout and its charter legislatively dissolved.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: The fundamentals of economic strife based on the disastrous collapse of the U.S. housing market will not get better any time soon. In fact, what's being pushed through both houses of Congress, even as you read this, is so dangerous that it should be immediately abandoned and revealed for what it is - a ticking time bomb labeled with the initials FHA.

Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac- The Mother of ALL Bailouts! / Housing-Market / Credit Crisis 2008

Farewell Indymac, Who's Next? (Part1) / Housing-Market / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Friday, IndyMac joined the long and growing list of bankrupt mortgage companies (Accredited Home Lenders, Novastar Financial, Fremont General and dozens of others) that have been taken down by what has already surpassed mortgage and bank losses of the Savings & Loan Crisis. While Indy marks only the sixth bank failure since the official start of the banking-real estate avalanche is February 2007, you can bet this is only the beginning. The last wave of bank failures in the U.S. occurred during the recession of '90-'91, when 502 banks failed in a 3-year period. Prior to that, more than 1,600 banks insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) were closed or received FDIC financial assistance between 1980 and 1994 due mainly to the Savings & Loan crisis.

UK House Price Crash In Progress! / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Halifax house price data for June revealed a 2% fall in house prices for the month or a loss of value of £3,500 from May, house prices are now down 6.1% on an seasonally adjusted basis, which is a far cry from March 2008 when the bank's chief economist was painting a bullish picture for house prices. However the housing market is in CRASH mode for the quarter April to June 08, as forecast by the Market Oracle in November 2007 - "house prices could register a drop of as much as 5% in the quarter April 08 to June 08"

Finally the Truth on the US Housing Bear Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou've all probably seen or heard about the recently released Harvard Housing study. Among other things, the report discusses the fact that the median wage-earner is unable to afford the median priced home and forecasts a drop in real estate prices to the 1999 level. The fact is that the study comes about one year too late for investors and consumers.

UK Housing Bust to Hit British Pound / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: I've pointed out many times here in my Money and Markets column that interest rates and economic growth are always the two primary fundamental drivers of currency prices. Therefore, it's no stretch to conclude that housing has been the Achilles' heel for the U.S. dollar.

But what if there's another major currency country that has a much worse outlook for its housing market? Would we then expect bad housing news to play a similar role in pushing its respective currency lower? I think the short answer is: Yes!

US House Prices Forecast 2008-2010 / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS House prices continued to plunge for April 08 data, reaching an extreme low reading of down 16.3% on a year earlier as measured by the S&P/ Case-Shiller Composite-10 and down more than 19% from the mid 2006 peak. The rate of decline is the worst since the Great Depression and signals further distress in the real estate linked credit markets and therefore a continuing drag on the US economy in the face of the continuing deleveraging of the mortgage backed derivatives markets.

UK Housing Bear Market Threatening Economic Deflation / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMay saw another sharp plunge in UK house prices towards what is likely to be termed as a mini-crash in UK housing market for the quarter April to June 08. Many homeowners who bought early into the current boom may be consoling themselves with having built up an healthy level of equity that is able to weather the downturn in UK housing market, after all someone buying 10 years ago would have racked up gains of over 180% to the 2007 peak and even after the initial forecast for a 2 year bear market if 15% would still stand to be some 140% richer.

US New Homes Taking Longer Sell / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

I hope the Census Bureau can count the number of people in the U.S. better than it can count the number of new homes sold. The first estimate of a given month's sales is notoriously off. So, we should take the first estimate of May sales and inventories of new homes with a grain of salt. Be that as it may, May new home sales retreated 2.5% to an annualized pace of 512 thousand units. The low sales rate for this cycle to date is 501 thousand established in March. The sales region that really put a dent in the total was the wild West, where sales declined 11.63% to a cycle low annual rate.

Case-Shiller House Price Index Declines - Light at the End of the Tunnel? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

The Case-Shiller Composite 20 house price index dropped at an annual rate of 18.5% seasonally adjusted (by me) in April compared with March. This was a relatively sharp slowdown in the rate of descent as the March month-to-month annualized decline was 24.2%. On a year-over-year basis, this house price index descended at its fastest rate to date, 15.3% vs. 14.3% in March (see Chart). If, in fact, the slowdown in the rate of price decreases on a month-to-month basis is signal, not noise, then perhaps we are nearing an inflection point in house prices.
