Preparing Yourself for US Housing Market Bubble 2.0 / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Rodney_Johnson

Waiting out Bubble 1.0

I moved to Florida in 2005, just before the housing bubble peaked. Believing that prices couldn’t remain high, we bought a smaller home than we otherwise would have. Renting would’ve been nice, but we couldn’t find a rental in a school district we liked.

Home prices marched higher for six months or so, and the S&P/Case-Shiller 20-City Home Price Index reached 206. Then things slowed down. By late 2006, it was obvious that the housing market had changed. We know what happened next.

BrExit House Prices Crash, Flat or Rally? UK Housing Market Affordability Crisis / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

In the run up to the EU referendum the establishment REMAIN camp had peddled a perpetual year long story that UK house prices would collapse or crash if BrExit happened, as operation fear each month ramped up the threats of that which awaited a post Brexit Britain.

For instance George Osborne repeatedly issued doom warnings that likely contributed to his swift sacking by Theresa May

“If we leave the European Union there will be an immediate economic shock that will hit financial markets... That affects the value of people’s homes and the Treasury analysis shows that there would be a hit to the value of people’s homes by at least 10 per cent and up to 18 per cent." - George Osborne

China’s Property Bubble Showing Parallels to the Subprime Crisis / Housing-Market / China Housing Market

By: Harry_Dent

The menacing fury of economic triggers that began piling up after the Great Recession are only getting larger and we can’t do much but watch it unfold and stay alert.

I wrote about this in a letter late last year, but now here we are more than halfway through the year and it’s only getting worse. So much worse that the Chinese property bubble is now

Six-month Review of the UK Mortgage Market / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

When looking back at the first half of 2016 it’s clear to see that the mortgage market has had a significant boost, resulting in some of the lowest rates on record. In fact, research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that, since the start of this year, average rates across all fixed mortgage terms have fallen; the average two-year fixed rate has seen the biggest reduction, falling by 0.24% since January this year.

US Housing Market Real Estate Mania Redux / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Clif_Droke

Among the biggest relative strength leaders in the U.S. broad market right now are the home builders and REITs.  The U.S. real estate sector is heating up and is also beginning to attract “hot money” inflows from foreign investors looking for a profitable safe haven.  Real estate is building a measure of momentum not seen since before the 2008 credit crash.  As such, the question as to whether a renewed property market mania is underway is a timely one and will now be addressed.

Fall in UK BTL Mortgages for First-time Landlords / Housing-Market / Buy to Let

By: MoneyFacts

Year-on-year, the number of buy-to-let (BTL) mortgages has increased, so it would be fair to assume that the availability of deals for first-time landlords has also expanded. However, research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that the proportion of mortgage deals for new landlords has actually shrunk to a record low.

UK House Prices BrExit Crash NOT Likely Despite London Property Market Weakness / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The establishment REMAIN camp peddled the same story for the UK housing market all year, one of a collapse, crash or worse! As operation fear each month ramped up the threats of that which awaited a post Brexit Britain. The house prices crash fear mongering even emanated direct from George Osborne himself who warned: “If we leave the European Union there will be an immediate economic shock that will hit financial markets... That affects the value of people’s homes and the Treasury analysis shows that there would be a hit to the value of people’s homes by at least 10 per cent and up to 18 per cent."

The U.S. Housing Market Bubble Appears to Have Peaked!  / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

Two weeks ago, I wrote about an upcoming New York City condominium listing for $250 million. I mention this because, as I’ve explained before, it’s always the tallest buildings and priciest condos to get hit during major downturns.

Just look at the early 1930s and mid-1970s marking peak bubbles if you don’t believe me!

Insanity Definition on Full Display in US Mortgage Market / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: Michael_Pento

Wells Fargo recently announced a new mortgage product they are calling “A game changer in the industry.” According to the bank, this product is purported to facilitate the dream of homeownership to more people by …wait for it... lowering the down payment and out-of-pocket costs associated with a more conventional mortgage products, while also offering more consumer friendly income and credit guidelines.

This new product that those at Wells Fargo have declared “revolutionary” is called yourFirst MortgageSM and one has to imagine it must have been developed by somebody with a severe case of amnesia and who has recently suffered from a bad concussion.

UK Fixed Rate Mortgages - Move Over Banks, Mutuals Offer Borrowers Better Deals / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Due to bigger banks taking greater advantage of the Government’s Funding for Lending Scheme to fund their mortgage books (and still having a significant sum of cash left to use), many would assume that mortgage rates from these providers would be significantly lower than those offered by the rest of the market. However, research from Moneyfacts.co.uk has found that building societies are actually the undeniable winners when it comes to mortgage deals.

New home sales just went up a staggering 16.6% in April.

619,000 new homes were sold – the most since early 2008 just before the worst of the housing meltdown, and the highest rate of growth in 24 years.

So is this a sign that the economy is back on track?

U.S. Housing Market Real Estate Bubble Part II / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Michael_Pento

It shouldn't be hard to understand that nearly 90 months of ZIRP has regenerated the equity and real estate bubbles that first pushed the global economy off a cliff back in 2007. In fact, the Fed's unprecedented foray with interest rate manipulation has caused these assets to become far more detached from underlying fundamentals than they were prior to the start of the Great Recession.

By: MoneyFacts

Mortgages have become increasingly competitive over the years, and thanks to low interest rates and Government initiatives, there are many deals on offer that will save borrowers thousands of pounds on their mortgage.

However, despite the long-running price war, the latest research by Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that mortgage fees are now on the rise, which means borrowers should be even more diligent when working out the cost-effectiveness of a deal.

Barclays 100% Mortgage Pours Fuel on UK House Prices Bull Market / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The UK mortgage providers are once more innovating new products with old objectives, that of allowing those who cannot afford to buy their first homes, being engineered an helping hand onto the property ladder. Which is what Barclays 100% mortgage (no deposit) represents at upto 5.5X earnings. However we are not quite back to the free for all frenzy of 2007 when the credit markets were so loose that self certified mortgages were rampant and not forgetting savers who could lock in 7%+ yields! Even savvy borrowers could turn the tables on the credit card providers and rake in several thousands of pounds a year by stoozing (borrowing on 0% credit cards and saving in accounts paying as high as 7%).
