Ben Bernanke's Misguided Focus on U.S. Housing Market is Like a Bad Joke / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: It's a little early for April Fools, but Ben Bernanke might just be a prankster at heart.

I say this because he recently told the Economic Club of Indiana in Indianapolis that the Fed's plans for QE3 would help create more economic activity and higher home prices. Then he added, almost as an afterthought, that this would help many more savers than it would hurt.

Slowly Rising U.S. House Prices Positive for U.S. Economy / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Case-Shiller Home Price Index (HPI) of 20 metro areas rose 0.4% in July, marking the sixth consecutive monthly increase. An alternate price measure such as the CoreLogic Home Price Index shows almost a similar trend. However, it should be noted that these gains are occurring from extraordinarily low levels (see chart below) and the underlying trend is one of slight deceleration, which reduces the optimism rendered by the headline, somewhat.

U.S. Housing Market Improvements Keep Trickling In / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHousing market developments (starts and sales of existing homes) in August stand out amid a recent string of bearish economic reports.

Return of the high LTV UK Mortgage Market Products / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: MoneyFacts

There has been an increase in activity from lenders launching mortgage deals at higher loan-to-values (LTVs), providing some much-needed relief for first-time buyers (FTBs) searching for competitive rates for smaller deposits.

There were 36 new mortgage deals in the 85% LTV tiers and above in August 2012, a complete reversal from the drop of 26 products the previous month.

Canada’s Housing Market – Boom Or Bust? / Housing-Market / Canada

By: Vin_Maru

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBank of Canada may be ahead of all its peers in ensuring its banks meet the Basel capital requirements. And it may have done a better job in regulating the banking sector, but they are not innocent of allowing bubbles in Canada to form.  Even Mark Carney feels that the housing market is overheated. Carney made recent comments about the health of Canadian banks.

As for Canada's banks, Carney said they may have some exposure to record household debt levels and the overheated housing market, but he noted that high-risk mortgages are insured by the federal government.

The Canadian real estate housing bubble still seems to get inflated in some major cities like Toronto.

Will Speculators Rescue the U.S. Housing Market? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the housing bubble burst there was sympathy for first-time home-buyers who had been enticed in by the easy loans and rising home prices and wound up in trouble.

But investors in single family homes came to be castigated as ‘flippers’, ‘suckers’, and worse. They had played a significant role in creating the bubble, signing contracts, often on multiple homes, making virtually no down payments, not intending to ever live in or even rent out the homes, but to simply flip them for a quick profit. Builders could hardly keep up with demand for a while, but wound up with wastelands of partially completed developments and condo projects, especially in the sun-belt states.

U.S. Housing Market Good News Keeps Rolling In / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Positive Housing News Keeps Rolling In," exclaimed the headline of a July 24, 2012, Wall Street Journal story by Steven Russolillo. The author found much to praise. One gloomy Gus could not help but conclude otherwise. Old Gus holds the house market at bay, one reason being the great unknown of what will happen to house prices when Fannie and Freddie are no more. The GSEs (Government Sponsored Enterprises) are still a massive presence in the home mortgage market. Their full faith is due to the implicit U.S. government guarantee.
