U.S. House Price Crash Worse than the Great Depression, How Much Lower Will they Go? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Washingtons_Blog

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI noted in January that the housing slump is worse than during the Great Depression.

The Wall Street Journal noted Tuesday:

The folks at Capital Economics write in with this gloomy tidbit: “The further fall in house prices in the first quarter means that, on the Case-Shiller index, prices have now fallen by more than they did during the Great Depression.”

How to Fix the U.S. Housing Market / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: If this week's economic reports showed us anything, it's the fact that two years into what's supposed to be an economic recovery, the U.S. housing market remains on life support.

But here's what those reports didn't tell you: If the housing market isn't fixed soon, it's going to drag the rest of the economy down into a hellish bottom that will take years, if not decades, to crawl out of.

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe seasonally adjusted Case-Shiller Home Price Index of 20 metro areas slipped 0.2% in March.  This is the ninth consecutive monthly decline after the index posted gains in the second-half of 2009 and first-half of 2010.  The temporary gain of the Case-Shiller Home Price Index was largely due to the first-time home buyer program which expired in April 2010.

U.S. Housing Market Starts Continue to Hover Around Cycle Low / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Housing starts fell 10.6% to an annual rate of 523,000 in April.  Construction of single-family homes (-5.1%) and multi-family homes (-24.1%) declined in April.  Starts of both total and single-family units (394,000) in April are little different from the cycle low (see Chart 1).  Starts of new homes fell in the Northeast (-4.8%) and South (-23%) but advanced in the Midwest (+15.7%) and the West (+3.7%).  The large supply of unsold homes and distressed properties continues to hold down construction of new homes.

US and UK Housing Market Outlook / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHouse prices globally tend to follow cycles lasting around 16 years: patterns of 12 years of rises followed by 4 years of declines (at a steeper rate than the rises). With US house prices having peaked in 2006 and UK house prices 2007, cycles suggest a new bull market should now emerge. So do historical measures support this?

U.S. Housing Market is Still Sick / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEveryone is curious about the state of housing in the US. My friend Gary Shilling recently did a lengthy issue on housing as it is today. I asked him to give us a shorter version for Outside the Box, and he graciously did. And you want to know what Gary thinks, because he is one of the guys who really got it right early, from subprime to the bubble and the price collapse, and has been right all along. No one is better. This very readable edition is full of charts and fast reasoning.

By: Andrew_Butter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Bank Repossession (REO) is the final stage of the foreclosure process that typically requires three foreclosure notices in USA. The REO is the point at which the bank throws you out on the street; but when the media report “X” many foreclosure filings in a month, that’s a mix of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd (final) stages.

U.S. Housing Market Adjusted CPI, Gold, and Deflation Theory / Housing-Market / Deflation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am a firm believer that housing prices belong in the CPI. I have discussed this at length before, and in light of reported inflation (as measured by prices but certainly not credit), it's time to take another look at a CPI adjusted for housing prices.

Here are a couple of chart from my friend "TC" that show the relation between the CPI, a Case-Shiller adjusted CPI, and the Fed Funds Rate. For more on the rationale behind the following charts please see What's the Real CPI?

U.S. Housing Market and GDP Economic Growth / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Tony_Pallotta

Housing as a percent of GDP peaked in 1980 at 19%. In 2005 as the housing bubble was set to pop it represented 18.5%. Today it stands at 15%, still a large piece of the economy.

The part that is not measured (not sure it can be) is housing's impact on overall economic demand through the wealth affect. If someone is confident in the value of their home for example they are willing to invest in an addition or a remodel for example.

Is the housing crisis going to end at some point? Today there are millions of American families that would like to buy homes but they are not sure what to do. After all, nobody wants to end up like all the suckers that bought at the top of the market and now owe far more on their mortgages then their homes are worth. A lot of people are really afraid to take out home loans right now. So should you buy a home in 2011? That is a very good question.

U.S. Housing Market Starts, Small Gain, But is Step in Right Direction / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Asha_Bangalore

Housing starts rose 7.2% to an annual rate of 549,000 in March following an 18.5% drop in the prior month.  In the first quarter, total housing starts have risen at an annualized pace of 23.2%.  Single-family starts moved up 7.7% to an annual rate of 422,000 in March.  However, on a quarterly basis, starts of single-family units have dropped nearly 18%, which indicates that the entire gain in the first quarter came from multi-family starts.  These numbers suggest that residential investment expenditure most likely made a small positive contribution to real GDP in the first quarter.  The current level of housing starts is still down nearly 77% from the peak reading in January 2006 (1.823 million units).
