UK Mortgages Five Years of Historic Low BOE Interest Rate Analysis / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Thursday is expected to mark the fifth year of the historically low BoE base rate of 0.5%. 

Moneyfacts has analysed the lowest mortgage rates available in March 2009 against today’s equivalents.

The table below shows the lowest mortgage rate five years ago for 60% LTV was 2.99% compared to today’s equivalent mortgage, which charges just 1.48%. After working out the true cost of the mortgage including fees and introductory offers and based on a £150,000 mortgage over 25 years, today’s borrower is saving almost £800 (£788.96).

UK Facing Housing Costs Time Bomb - Millions at the Mercy of Bank Interest Rates / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Global_Research

Dennis Moore writes: Millions of people across Britain have serious concerns as to whether they will be able to afford to keep their homes, according to the housing charity Shelter.

A survey of 4,000 people by the charity, organised via YouGov, revealed the disturbing trend, as many said they feared they would not be able to meet housing bills. One in five of those surveyed said they were so anxious they did not open their post if they thought it could be a late payment reminder.

How to Profit from the Weakening U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: It doesn’t take much to get the bulls excited when it comes to the U.S. housing market. Solid new-home sales data seems to have erased everyone’s memory of the raft of negative housing market numbers that have been flowing in for months.

Warren Buffett - What You Can Learn From My Real Estate Investments / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Mauldin

It does not hurt to be reminded once in a while about what it means to be a “true investor,” and who better to remind us than Warren Buffett? Today’s Outside the Box comes to us from the pages of Fortune magazine (hat tip to my good friend Tom Romero of Capital Research Partners, who is a pretty fair investor in his own right).

Fortune seems to have had the inside scoop on Mr. Buffett’s pronouncements over the years. I still keep some old Fortune magazines with interviews of Mr. Buffett to remind myself about the basics. For whatever reason I was up at 5 o’clock this morning and began reading this piece, and it functioned just as well as coffee as a wake-up call.

U.S. Housing Market Firesales Could Trigger Another Financial Crisis / Housing-Market / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Mike_Whitney

Ask your average guy-on-the-street ‘what caused the financial crisis’, and you’ll either get a blank stare followed by a shrug of the shoulders or a brusque, three-word answer: “The housing bubble”. Even people who follow the news closely are usually sketchy on the details. They might add something about subprime mortgages or Lehman Brothers, but not much more than that. Very few people seem to know that the crisis began in a shadowy part of the financial system called repo, which is short for repurchase agreement. In 2008, repo was ground zero, the epicenter of the meltdown. That’s where the bank run took place that froze the credit markets and sent the financial system into freefall. Unfortunately, nothing has been done to fix the problems in repo, which means that we’re just as vulnerable today as we were five years ago when Lehman imploded and all hell broke loose.

U.S. Housing Market Mortgage Purchase Applications Running Out Of Time / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: For 2013, one of the main stories in housing was the cool down in existing home sales numbers over the second half of the year, in spite of the relative strength in GDP.

What was the main reason for this? Follow the data and the answer appears. When interest rates spiked we did not see the mythical sideline home buyer rush to the market place. Rather what we saw was a collapse of the mortgage purchase application index.

Why Analysts Can’t Just Blame the Weather for Poor U.S. Housing Market Numbers / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: No matter where you turn, bad earnings or economic indicators are being blamed on the cold weather. Weak January car sales figures were blamed on the weather; disappointing January housing data was blamed on the weather; Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE/WMT) revised its earnings guidance lower because of the weather; and even Panera Bread Company (NASDAQ/PNRA) says the cold weather negatively impacted its results.

Banks Retake UK Mortgages 95% Fixed LTV Market / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Moneyfacts.co.uk research reveals that over the last six months there has been a significant rise in the number of fixed rate 95% LTV mortgages offered by banks, so much so the former market share enjoyed by building societies is being rapidly eroded.

Historically, building societies have held a greater share of the 95% LTV sector, largely due to the fact that banks have been reluctant to offer such high-risk products.

U.S. Housing Market Foreclosure Filings Jump as Investors Eye Exits / Housing-Market / US Housing

“Speculators may do no harm as bubbles on a steady stream of enterprise. But the position is serious when enterprise becomes the bubble on a whirlpool of speculation. When the capital development of a country becomes a by-product of the activities of a casino, the job is likely to be ill-done.” -John Maynard Keynes, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

UK Housing Market and Climate Change, Floodplain's & River Flooding Risks / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The people of Britain during January and February 2014 have received a wake up call that climate change is real and will increasingly impact on their lives over the coming years, busting the myth that climate change consequences were decades away as home owners not only have to contend with rising sea levels impacting on low lying coastal regions but also with what were once deemed to be extreme weather storm events that are increasingly becoming a regular occurrence.

U.S. Housing Market Flipped, Warped Distorted and Manipulated / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: James_Quinn

The report from RealtyTrac last week proves beyond the shadow of a doubt the supposed housing market recovery is a complete and utter fraud. The corporate mainstream media did their usual spin job on the report by focusing on the fact foreclosure starts in 2013 were the lowest since 2007. Focusing on this meaningless fact (because the Too Big To Trust Wall Street Criminal Banks have delayed foreclosure starts as part of their conspiracy to keep prices rising) is supposed to convince the willfully ignorant masses the housing market is back to normal. It’s always the best time to buy!!!

The “Vanishing” First-Time Home Buyer; What It Means for the U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: Ah, the U.S. housing market, the so-called silver lining in the U.S. recovery—but not for long, as it may be rusting. The U.S. housing numbers are in, and they aren’t spectacular.

In the U.S. housing market, December existing-home sales rose one percent month-over-month at an annualized pace of 4.87 million units. Analysts were expecting December existing-home numbers to come in at 4.93 million. The one-percent increase also has to be taken with a grain of salt, as it was helped, in part, by a downward revision in November existing-home U.S. housing market sales to 4.82 million units. (Source: “December Existing-Home Sales Rise, 2013 Strongest in Seven Years,” National Association of Realtors web site, January 23, 2014.)

Is the U.S. Housing Market Recovery Fake? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: The U.S. housing market is facing issues that must be addressed. The reality of the matter is that home buyers are still missing from the market—these are the people looking to buy a home and stay in it for a long time. If home buyers don’t come back to the housing market, hopes for the increase we saw in home prices in 2012 and 2013 will diminish very quickly.

UK House Prices vs Earnings, Immigration, Public Spending, Unemployment and Housing Market Affordability / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politicians have been busy in recent months making a series of speeches warning of the cost of living crisis as liberally reported on by the mainstream press, a crisis that manifests itself in earnings unable to keep pace with even the official rate of inflation that has been systematically revised over several decades to under report the real rate of inflation. The persistent lack of apparent housing market affordability has encouraged many academic economists and journalists to warn of falling earnings against rising house prices as a fundamental reason why house price rises are unsustainable as obviously people just do not have enough money to finance house purchase costs such as mortgage payments as prices rise, and thus deflation is always deemed to be just around the corner. We'll as I will illustrate in this article in my UK housing market series that they are once more WRONG!

How Housing Market Regulations Ruin Tenant-Landlord Relations / Housing-Market / Market Regulation

By: MISES

Predrag Rajsic writes: An Open Letter to My Landlord

Dear EIWO Canadian Executive,

Unfortunately, it has become necessary that I express my and my family’s displeasure with the way your company has been treating us as customers. Our recent interactions with the management indicated that your company puts negligible importance on the past six years of our business partnership. Although we have been paying rent every month for the past six years without any issues, your staff assumed that the best way to communicate a late payment for the previous month is an N4 eviction notice. The N4 notice states in large bold and underlined font that “this is a legal notice that could lead to you being evicted from your home.” This eviction notice was accompanied by a letter that “asks that in the future you (meaning my wife and I) make more of an effort to have your (our) rent paid on time.”

In short, I want INCREDIBLE value for my investment dollars... and I had never seen that before in U.S. real estate... until the Great Bust.

Then in 2008, near the bottom of the housing crisis, I wrote "The Housing Bust Is Over."

U.S. Housing Market Now Providing a Tailwind to Economic Growth / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: While residential investment represents a small portion of gross domestic product (GDP), housing is perhaps one of the most cyclical sectors of the economy and tends to lead economic swings by months to years. As such, keeping a close eye on housing provides a valuable insight into future economic trends. While housing represented a major headwind to the economy after the housing bubble burst, as I show below, it is now providing a major tailwind instead.

Get Ready for Subprime Mortgage Crisis 2.0, Collapse in U.S. Housing Market Coming... / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Videos

Forget what you are hearing about stiffer mortgage lending requirements. It’s not true. Real estate expert Fabian Calvo says, “If you can fog up a mirror or you have a pulse, they will give you a home loan. That’s what they have done with the car loans, and that’s what they are doing with housing loans.” The so-called new rules do not have any down payment credit score requirement. Zero percent down loans are going to make a very big comeback. According to Calvo, “After the mid-term election, you’re going to see no-money-down loans just really roar back. It’s all part of the pump and dump I’ve been telling you about for well over a year.”

Five U.S. Housing Market Headwinds / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Shedlock

Black Knight Financial Services, formerly LPS, released its latest Mortgage Monitor Forecast.

Key Highlights

  • Mortgage originations are at the lowest levels in almost four years
  • Prepayment/refi activity indicates another drop coming
  • Higher interest rates slow refinance activity
  • Quality of loans originated in 2013 have made it the best performing vintage on on record.
  • Home equity originations are up significantly since a year ago: total HE lending is up 70%, while volume on 2nd mortgages has more than doubled
  • Population of “refinancible” loans continues to shrink - Only 5.9M loans meet broadly defined criteria for refinancing, down 4M since December 2012.
  • Delinquencies continue to rise among HELOCs that began amortizing
  • High risk of “payment shock” in the coming three years
