U.S. Houses Prices Bull, Bear or Crash Ahead Into 2016? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The most recent release for US House prices data for March 2015 (Case Shiller 10 City Composite) which despite rising by 0.8% on the month nevertheless continues to maintain a trend for the erosion of annual pace for house price inflation that remains below 5%, far lower than that of a year ago when US house prices were galloping ahead at near 14% per annum as illustrated by the momentum graph.

The Fed's Failure: U.S. New Home Sales Back to 1960s Levels / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

By Rodney Johnson : A problem with most humans is that we’re really bad at letting go of what happened yesterday. So too with nations. When estimating potential threats, it’s easy for leaders to adapt to whatever happened in the latest conflict, developing their military accordingly.

Think of the U.S. after World War II. We built up land forces across Europe to guard against an invasion by the U.S.S.R. Later on in Vietnam we dove into jungle warfare, where tanks and mass forces were less useful. We were set up to fight the last war, not the next one.

UK House Prices Post Election Fall, Whilst Annual Momentum Plays Catchup / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The latest UK house prices seasonally adjusted data published by the Halifax registered a fall of 0.1% for May 2015 that followed a 1.6% surge for April as George Osborne succeeded in his pre-election house prices boom timed to reach maximum intensity just prior to election day. Following which house prices are starting to show signs of rolling over in the monthly data whilst the annual data continues to play catch up as annual inflation nudged higher to 8.6%. Which also makes a mockery of recent mainstream press deflation scare stories in the wake of annual CPI dropping to -0.1%, which at the time I warned was ignoring the elephant in the room, namely house price inflation galloping ahead at 10% per annum.

US Housing Market - Something Smells Fishy / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: James_Quinn

It’s always interesting to see a long term chart that reflects your real life experiences. I bought my first home in 1990. It was a small townhouse and I paid $100k, put 10% down, and obtained a 9.875% mortgage. I was thrilled to get under 10%. Those were different times, when you bought a home as a place to live. We had our first kid in 1993 and started looking for a single family home. We stopped because our townhouse had declined in value to $85k, so I couldn’t afford to sell. In 1995 I convinced my employer to rent my townhouse, as they were already renting multiple townhouses for all the foreigners doing short term assignments in the U.S. We bought a single family home in 1995 with the sole purpose of having a decent place to raise a family that was within 20 minutes of my job.

Why Do We Celebrate Rising U.S. House Prices? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: MISES

Ryan McMaken writes: In recent years, home price indices have seemed to proliferate. Case-Shiller, of course, has been around for a long time, but over the past decade, additional measures have been marketed aggressively by Trulia, CoreLogic, and Zillow, just to name a few.

Measuring home prices has taken on an urgency beyond the real estate industry because for many, home price growth has become something of an indicator of the economy as a whole. If home prices are going up, it is assumed, “the economy” must be doing well. Indeed, we are encouraged to relax when home prices are increasing or holding steady, and we’re supposed to become concerned if home prices are going down.

5 Ways You Can Stop House Eviction In UK / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Submissions

Victoria Adams writes: Mortgage arrears could be the worst nightmare for any homeowner since it leads to you losing your home. When you are unable to pay the loan secured on the home, the chances of having your home repossessed increase. The risk of losing the possession of your home to your mortgage lender also increases if you do not pay your instalments on time. Mortgage repossessions have leaped to their highest levels in the last few years.

U.S. Government Using Subprime Mortgages To Pump Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: James_Quinn

Taxpayers Will Pay Again - It seems hard to believe, but your government is purposely recreating the mortgage debacle of 2007 and putting you on the hook for the billions in losses coming down the road. In their frantic effort to generate the appearance of economic recovery they are willing to gamble with taxpayer’s money while luring unsuspecting blue collar folks into buying houses they can’t afford. During the previous housing bubble, greedy Wall Street bankers, deceitful mortgage brokers, and corrupt rating agencies colluded to commit the greatest control fraud in the history of mankind. This time it is your government, aided and abetted by the Federal Reserve, that is actively promoting the lending of money to people incapable of paying it back. And again, you the taxpayer will be on the hook when it predictably blows up.

Advantages And Disadvantages Of Buy To Let Property Investment / Housing-Market / Buy to Let

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Although there is still a crisis that is visible when referring to the housing market all around the world, money can still be made in this industry. The houses do not sell, usually because of the fact that many cannot actually afford the costs. Living costs are high and families are currently focused on rented housing. For the renters, the situation is not that great since there is not a high supply available for properties that can be rented. However, this is a good thing for the investors, according to what was mentioned by dzhingarov.com: real estate investors can take advantage of buy to let properties in order to get a guaranteed profit on the long run.

Cheap Buy-to-Let Mortgage Deals Increasing Threefold / Housing-Market / Buy to Let

Charlotte Nelson, Finance Expert at Moneyfacts.co.uk, comments: “Buy-to-let mortgages are experiencing a renaissance, becoming not only more widely available but cheaper, too.

“With more five-year fixed rate deals charging below 5% than ever before, it is little wonder that the newly emancipated pensioners are genuinely considering buy-to-let as a retirement option.

Why a Buy-to-let property may not be as suitable as a student property / Housing-Market / Buy to Let

By: Submissions

Pure Student Property writes: The new pension changes will mean that anyone over the age of 55 will be able to access their pension and will not have to buy an annuity. This leads to the belief that the buy-to-let market in the UK could offer high returns for those who are newly retired, however, this may not be true for everyone as student property could be more suited to others.

UK House Prices, Immigration, Population Growth and Election Forecast 2015 / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britains housing market pressure cooker is one of limited new build supply that consistently fails to keep pace with new demand that typically tends to average twice the rate of required supply resulting in an worsening housing crisis each year which explains why ivory tower academic theories of a UK house prices bubble that is always imminently destined to burst persistently fails to materialise. Instead the reality is one of house prices relentlessly grinding ever higher whilst people in other nations can only look on in puzzlement as to how can UK house prices continue to defy gravity with an ever escalating house price to earnings ratio that on an average basis stands at X7, far beyond that of virtually every other western nation. Therefore this analysis revisits the UK's near unique immigration driven population growth demographic drivers that contrary to bubble bursting expectations could yet continue to persist for several more decades!
