Subprime Mortgage Problems Quarantined? Ask the Home Builders / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) index of current sales of new single-family homes edged down a tick to 29 in the June survey, the lowest reading for this housing cycle and the lowest reading since early 1991 (see Chart 1). Why? I will let David Seiders, the NAHB's chief economist, tell you in his own words: "It's clear that the crisis in the subprime sector has prompted tighter lending standards in much of the mortgage market, and interest rates on prime-quality home mortgages have moved up considerably during the past month along with long-term Treasury rates."

Mortgage Fixed Rates Disappearing Again… / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Lisa Taylor, of Moneyfacts.co.uk – the money search engine, comments:“With base rate remaining on hold, at least for the next month, we may have expected the mortgage market to have settled. However this is far from the case, especially for fixed rate deals that have been either disappearing off the shelves or increasing rapidly.

Homebuilders Stocks Rallying : How could this be? Part II / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Michael_K_Dawson

My trading strategy is fairly simple. I identify a dominate theme and then buy leading stocks in that theme. This has worked quite well for me over the years. Back in the good old days it was the Internet and stocks like AOL (TWX), CMGI (CMGI), Cisco (CSCO), Intel (INTC) and Microsoft (MSFT). Over the past three years, it has been industrialization of the emerging markets. This led to the formation of my Big Build-Out (BBO) portfolio  and stocks like Companhia Vale do Rio Doce (RIO), Southern Copper (PCU) and BHP Billiton (BHP).  Read full article...

We are on the Brink of a UK Housing Market Crash Warns Fool.co.uk / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Fool.co.uk

Household finances in British homes are at breaking point. With virtually no safety margin in the average household budget, a further rise in interest rates could tip many homeowners over the edge, according to a study by personal finance website Fool.co.uk .

Currently, the gross income of the average household in the UK is £32,800 (1). This equates to a net income of £,700 (1) after adjusting for the receipt of benefits and the deduction of direct and indirect taxes. While this comfortably exceeds average household expenditure of £20,800 (2) before mortgage payments, it only tells part of the story.

Price is Everything in Today's Housing Market! / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson writes : There is demand for housing out there. Yes, you heard me right — people are willing to buy homes.

There's just one catch: The prices have to be low!

That's one message from the April housing data. The other is that we are literally swimming in homes for sale — condos, town houses, single-family homes, you name it!

Let me tell you what this means …

UK Home Information Packs (HIPs) on the Rack ? / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Submissions

The looming introduction of home information packs (Hips) will no doubt have had many property investors and landlords scratching their chins and wondering whether they would cost more than they could possible save.

While the packs might be a welcome boost for landlords looking to expand their portfolio, those aiming to sell off a few properties could have regarded them as one extra headache.

Real Estate and Asset Deflation: You Assume, You Lose / Housing-Market / Deflation

By: Steve_Moyer

"Begin challenging your own assumptions. Your assumptions are your windows to the world. Scrub them off every once in a while or the light won't come in." ~ Alan Alda

Just to prove that every village has its idiots, an article in the San Francisco Chronicle's Sunday Real Estate section last week featured an assortment of irresponsible "mortgage consultants" and "financial strategists" speaking enthusiastically about the idea of borrowing against the equity in your home in order to invest in the stock market (or wherever else you might want to take a chance on achieving an investment return higher than the interest rate you would pay on a home loan).

The California Housing Report: Details In the Data Show A Broad-based Price Decline / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Jas_Jain

Headline: "C.A.R. [California Association of Realtors] reports sales decrease 27.8 percent in April, median price of a home in California at $597,640, up 6.2 percent from year ago." Then we also read, "Throughout the state inventory levels have increased to their highest levels in recent years..."

Price increase in the climate of declining sales and rising inventory? Something doesn't add up.

US Housing Discounting and the Gold Bull Market / Housing-Market / Gold & Silver

By: Adrian_Ash

"...The only way US builders can shift unsold homes is to discount. Existing homes, in contrast, won't sell – because the discounting has yet to begin..."

BUY LOW, SELL HIGH – it sounds simple enough. Yet the strategy eludes most people.

Drowning in newsprint, they like to buy what's hot instead – like Tech Stocks in late 1999, oil futures in summer 2005, subprime mortgage-backed bonds in 2006, tulip bulbs in Amsterdam , 1624.

Investment Flash: Derivatives Say Bernanke Will Be Wrong / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Paul_Lamont

U.S. mortgages in foreclosure rose in April 62% from a year ago according to RealtyTrac Inc. Folks are increasingly losing their homes as we warned last October . Attempting to allay fears, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke spoke last Thursday: "We believe the effect of the troubles in the subprime sector on the broader housing market will be limited and we do not expect significant spillovers from the subprime market to the rest of the economy or to the financial system." We clearly disagree.

Credit Suisse's ARM Reset Schedule, included in our last report , shows that over $1 Trillion dollars worth of adjustable rate mortgages will reset over the next 5 years. Bloomberg is just now reporting on the extent of the subprime meltdown . Even more telling is what credit derivative market charts are showing.

Analyst Warns of 'Potential Housing Market Crash' / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Submissions

A financial industry expert has warned of a 'potential crash' in the property market.

F&C Investments' Ted Scott believes a negative yield on property could lead to buy-to-let investors selling their homes as they can no longer cover costs - which would precipitate a housing market crash.

This scenario will be made more likely should the Bank of England's monetary policy committee (MPC) choose to increase rates to 5.75 per cent in the near future - as has been predicted.
