U.S. Housing Market - Time to Buy a House? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Anyone who buys a house in today’s market should be aware of the risks. They should know that current prices are not supported by fundamentals, but by unprecedented manipulation by the Fed, the Obama administration, Wall Street Private Equity investors, and the nation’s biggest banks. If any of these main-players withdraws or even reduces their support for the market (in other words, if the banks release more of their distressed inventory, if rates rise, if PE firms buy fewer homes, or if the Congress curtails current mortgage modification programs), housing prices will fall. Given the increasing volatility in global stock and bond markets in recent weeks–which is likely to intensify as the Fed  implements its exit strategy from QE– interest rates will continue to fluctuate putting downward pressure on housing sales and prices. The impact the Fed’s policy will have on markets and the economy is unknown. The Central Bank is in uncharted water. That makes it a particularly bad time to buy a home. Caveat emptor.

U.S. Housing Recovery Already Comes to an End? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The housing market simply isn’t improving at the rate many in the mainstream media are telling us.

Home prices are still significantly lower than what they were during 2005 and 2006. On its own, there is no housing market recovery. All we are witnessing is the mere reflection of easy money provided by our central bank.

U.S. Housing Market Potential for Catastrophic Losses for FHA / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: Five years after the financial crisis, just about everyone has had to clean up their act.

Consumers have less credit card debt. Banks are stuffed with capital, prodded by the Federal Reserve. Even the federal deficit is shrinking.

But one federal agency seems to have resisted long-overdue change. It's the Federal Housing Administration or FHA.

U.S. House Prices Accelerating, Fed Succeeding in Inflating New Ponzi Housing Market Bubble? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Fed's QE-Infinity money printing programme to buy mortgage backed securities and government bonds that is running at a monthly rate of $85 billion is succeeding in inflating another US housing market bubble as house prices surge by an annualised rate of 11% in March (28th May) with some cities such as Phoenix seeing house prices soar by an annualised rate of 20%.

Now whilst the title of this article may contain the word bubble, however understand this that we are in the very early stages of the housing bull market that follows on from the embryonic bull market of 2012 which has many years to run, so do not make the mistake that many market commentators are making in the wake of the latest data, those who never saw this bull market coming are busy already proclaiming it as bubble that is about to burst.

Best Explanation for the Fake U.S. Housing Market Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The average American Joe isn’t participating in the U.S. housing market. As a matter of fact, according to the Campbell/Inside Mortgage Finance HousingPulse Tracking Survey, investors purchased 69% of “damaged” properties in April 2013, while first-time home buyers accounted for only 16% of “damaged” purchases.

UK Housing Bull Market Opportunities In Britain's Multiculturalism Immigration Crisis / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In the recent May 2013 local elections support for UKIP soared to more than 25%, over taking the Liberal Democrats as the third party of protest as the major parties haemorrhaged voters due to their respective failures to address a crisis that has been fermenting over a near decade that has its roots in Labours open door policy to immigration from all new eastern european accession states, especially as many in Britain now fear another re-run of what followed the likes of Poland joining the EU near a decade ago as Bulgaria and Romania joining will likely see as many as 400,000 migrants over the next 3-4 years which is set against official expectations of just 13,000 new arrivals during 2014 (Communities Department).

The Great Reflation of the U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Peter_Schiff

This week economists, investors and politicians were treated to some of the "best" home price data since the frothy days of 2006 when home loans were given out like cotton candy and condo flipping was a national pastime. The Case-Shiller 20 City Composite Home price index was up a startling 10.9% for the 12 month period ending in March. Prices in all 20 cities were up, with some (Las Vegas, Phoenix, and San Francisco) notching gains of more than 20%. Meanwhile the National Association of Realtors announced that April pending home sales volume reached the highest level in nearly three years.

Is Real Estate Ever a Wise Investment for Retirees? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Don_Miller

At one point in my life you might have heard me say something like, “I’ve probably made more money in real estate by accident than I have in the market on purpose.” For many years, you could buy good-quality property, as much as you could afford, and you were almost guaranteed to make money. That ended in 2008. Now folks are looking for bargains, hoping to profit from the crash.

Chinese Sovereign Fund Shifts Focus to U.S. Real Estate / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the biggest fears for investors is to buy at the top of any market. This is a natural reaction because most of us were taught since childhood to do the opposite. For example, my parents always emphasized the importance of buying products when they’re on sale.

Some people view the significant rise in home prices with apprehension, believing that these prices have risen too far. While it is true that home prices have risen substantially, as long as interest rates remain low, there is potential for further capital appreciation.

U.S. Housing Market Important Data that Financial Media Ignored / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: J_W_Jones

Wednesday was a wild trading session where we saw the largest intraday selloff in the S&P 500 E-Mini futures that we have seen in some time. Intraday price action was driven largely by statements made by Chairman Bernanke and the release of the Federal Reserve Meeting Minutes which saw some monster intraday moves and a large spike in the Volatility Index (VIX).

While the world is focused on when the Federal Reserve is going to taper their Quantitative Easing program and the impact those actions will have on financial markets, I wanted to look at another divergence in the economic data which is supported by market action.

Is the U.S. Housing Market Shortage Just a Mirage? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Whitefoot writes:Thanks to the near-record-low interest rates, many Americans are ready to jump back into the housing market. Unfortunately, many are running into one obstacle—there aren’t enough homes for sale. That’s a good sign, though! After all, a leading indicator of economic growth is a healthy housing market, and a lack of housing should mean that builders can’t keep up with demand.

Another U.S. Housing Market Crisis on the Horizon? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: Home prices are heating up, as the flow of new homes and permits continue to steadily increase and the attraction of historically low mortgage rates motivates buyers.

The buyers that are driving up the housing market are not only the buyers of principal homes, but also the investors who are attracted to the relatively lower home prices and cheap financing.

U.S. Housing Market Shell Game - Prices Up Ownership Down / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

Why are housing prices rising when the homeownership rate has dropped to its lowest level in 18 years?

Actually, it’s not as confusing as it sounds. The Fed’s low interest rates have triggered a flurry of home buying by Private Equity firms and other speculators which has reduced already-tight supply and pushed up prices.  Of course, there is a downside to all this speculation, which is that real, “organic” demand from ordinary working people looking for a place to live, has dropped off sharply. That’s why the homeownership rate is in the dumps.  It’s also why existing homes sales declined 0.6 percent in March and “the volume of purchase applications is at levels last seen in 1998″,   because as prices edge higher, more people are opting to rent rather than own.  Who can blame them?

UK Interest Only Mortgage Mis-Selling Scandal - How to Claim Compensation / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: Nadeem_Walayat

First worthless payment protection insurance, then crushing interest rate swaps on small businesses and now the latest unfolding mis-selling scandal that could dwarf them all is the one of over 3 million interest only mortgages taken out by would-be home buyers during the housing boom years as desperate buyers were forced to over leverage themselves to get themselves onto the housing ladder.
