U.S. Homeowners Become Renters - Welcome to the Third World America / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Rubino

This morning’s housing report was huge. As one representative headline put it: “Housing starts up sharply; permits highest since 2008″.

Dig just a little deeper and it’s still huge, though in a different way. Turns out that all the increase was in apartment building, while single family homes — the linchpin of what used to be thought of as the American Dream — actually fell yet again. Here’s a brief but on-point analysis from the New York Times:

Are Homebuilder Stocks a Buy Ahead of the Spring? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Investment_U

David Becker writes: Homebuilding stocks are down nearly 5% so far in 2014, but as spring approaches, an increase in sales could just be the remedy these shares need. Unfortunately, homebuilders generally underperform in May and June, and higher housing prices and recent disappointing sales data could further erode the prices of homebuilder stocks.

The Mortgage Is Due for Fannie and Freddie / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: You can call it a bailout, a rakeover – I mean, takeover – or socialism for cash. It’s all that and more.

But, whatever you call it, it’s not going to last.

The $187.5 billion bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac back in 2008 was absolutely necessary. Before you tell me I’m crazy, let me tell you why…

UK Housing Market Bubble Warnings Mainstream Media Mania / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The mainstream media has been busy this past week regurgitating on a near daily basis warnings of a UK housing market bubble from wide range of academic economics institutions despite the fact that the said institutions never saw the housing bull market coming.

Guardian - Three former chancellors warn of house price bubble

Pressure on the Bank of England and the chancellor to scale back the Help to Buy programme has risen after three former chancellors, including two Conservatives, warned that the scheme needed revision and might be fuelling a house price boom.

Profitable Investment Opportunities in a Fragile U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: The housing market continues to hold. But there are some warning signs. Famed investor Warren Buffett suggested the housing market was overvalued and due for an adjustment.

Now, while there are some indications of an overhyped housing market, I’m not convinced it’s bubble-like quite yet. But be warned: mortgage rates and interest rates are heading higher. This means it will become more expensive to finance mortgages going forward.

Fastest Rise in UK Mortgage Interest Rates for Over 2 Years / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Research from Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that the average rate charged on a two-year fixed rate mortgage (across all LTVs) increased by 0.09% in one month, the fastest increase in the average rate since February 2012 when it rose by 0.13%.   

The average two-year fixed rate increased on fourteen (70%) of the twenty business days in April. It fell just three times (15%). Anyone applying for a two-year fixed on 1 April would have been offered an average rate of 3.52%, but by 30 April it would have risen to 3.61%, or an additional £290.88 over the term for a mortgage of £250,000.

Profit Like a Real Estate Mogul Without Buying Property / Housing-Market / Housing Stocks

By: Money_Morning

William Patalon III writes: With a 37% gain in The Blackstone Group LP (NYSE: BX) since late July, we've done really well with our targeted investment in real estate.

And with very quick gains of 9% in BRF SA (NYSE ADR: BRFS), 5.2% in South American agricultural play Adecoagro SA (NYSE: AGRO) and 1.6% in high-tech agribusiness player Neogen Corp. (Nasdaq: NEOG), we're doing well with our plays on (pockets of) accelerating U.S. inflation.

Why U.S. Housing Market Has Stalled — And Why Everything Else Will Follow / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Rubino

It’s not easy being a mainstream economist. You spend your life building models that become your professional identity. And when those models fail to describe and predict reality, you’re left wondering about the meaning of it all.

The latest case in point is US housing. Keynesian economic models say that if you lower mortgage rates you get more houses bought, sold and built. A nice, simple piece of cause and effect. But today’s mortgage rates are at levels that would have incited a buying frenzy a generation ago, employment is rising — and home sales, home building and mortgage originations are all flat-lining.

US Housing Market Is Down For The Count / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Recent news, graphs and data confirm what we have long said would inevitably become clear: the entire global economy appears to have “functioned” through an orgy of refinancing, LBO and M&A lately. That is to say, zombie money has been enthusiastically slushed and re-slushed around to provide commissions, bonuses etc. to bankers and brokers, a process enabled by central bank and government policies in which large amounts of credit were thrown against the wall like so much Jello, hoping – but not demanding – that some would stick. Zero bound interest rates made this process all the more attractive, since it was crucial to lure mom and pop back in. But now, if our eyes don’t receive us, it is reaching its inherent limits. And that’s going to hurt something bad.

Fed Follies, U.S. Housing Market Fiasco / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: LewRockwell

So far we have experienced 7 million foreclosures. Beyond that there are still 9 million homeowners seriously underwater on their mortgages and there are millions more who are stranded in place because they don’t have enough positive equity to cover transactions costs and more stringent down payment requirements.

And that’s before the next downturn in housing prices—a development which will show up any day. In fact, another downward plunge is a positive certainty now that the buy-to-rent LBO speculators are rapidly pulling out of those “flash” bull markets in Arizona, California, Los Vegas, Florida and elsewhere. The latter were merely short-lived price eruptions which were an artifact of the Fed’s free money policies.

UK Home Solar Panel Installations Good or Bad for House Buying and Selling? / Housing-Market / Solar Energy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The solar installation industry has been busy for many years convincing home owners with well rehearsed sales pitches and graphs of how much they could earn each year by profiting from FREE energy from the sun to generate their own electricity by installing large arrays of solar panels onto their south-ish facing roofs, that like a contagion soon tend to spread to neighbouring roofs despite the fact that the southern most tip of the Island of Britain lies a good 500 miles north of the start of the optimum zone for generating solar energy.

John Paul Whitefoot writes: Since the beginning of 2012, the U.S. housing market has been considered one of the bright spots in an otherwise uneven economic environment. Between 2007 and the end of 2011, the U.S. housing market fell 33%—since then, it has rebounded, climbing roughly 22%.

How to Increase the Value of Your Home With Loft Conversions / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Percentage added to the value of ones home is typically 125% to 200% of costs incurred. Typically £30k spent can convert into as much as a £60k increase in value.

If your loft is of at least 2.3 metres in height (centrally) then a loft conversion is one of the easiest ways to add both space and value to your home that can typically yield twice the amount spent. The cost to convert a loft into a layout of 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom would typically cost £30,000 to £40,000 for a standard dormer window conversion, therefore adding approx £60k to £80k to the value of ones home.

Investing in Future New Mega-Cities

Whilst most house hunters will be viewing properties in terms of what would be a good investment over the next 10 years or so, I tend to gaze much further into the mists of time to try to ascertain what the mega-trends are and then attempt to leverage my wealth towards profiting from them, even if most of the payoff could come beyond my life-time and thus for future generations to profit from.

Those in the “know”—economists and the real estate board—have been waxing eloquence on how the weather is the main culprit behind the disappointing U.S. housing market numbers.
