By: Nadeem_Walayat

U.S. Housing Market Warning - Don’t Sit On Your Real Estate! / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

I suppose you could say we have World War II to thank.

Upon returning from the war, soldiers had their GI benefits to enjoy and a deep-seated desire to start a family. And so was born (quite literally) the baby boom, and an accompanying surge in home buying.

Out of the ashes of destruction arose an American middle class and the first generation able to more broadly buy homes with long-term mortgages.

Sitting Uncomfortably on Your SVR Mortgate Interest Rate? / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts


Back in 2013 the Funding for Lending Scheme had a major impact on the mortgage market, leading to the introduction of what were at the time the lowest rates we had ever seen, particularly for two-year fixed deals. However, consumers who snapped up these deals are now coming to the end of their fixed terms, which means that many will soon start paying their providers’ revert rate. But data from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that by sitting on the revert rate, borrowers could potentially see their repayment costs shoot up by almost £3,500 a year.

In the market for homes over $1 million, the Chinese make up one out of every 14 buyers – which is huge. In the top tier markets in San Francisco, Orange County or Manhattan, they can be 50% or more!
