US Housing Market Final Stage (REO) Foreclosures Target Six Million By 2014 / Housing-Market / US Housing

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.

By: Chris_Kitze

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEnd of the American Dream writes: Has the U.S. housing market reached a "bottom" yet? Are home prices going to start recovering? 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 Foreclosure Chinese Water Torture / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Douglas_French

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe real-estate bust continues at a pace akin to Chinese water torture. Home prices peaked five years ago, but a mountain of foreclosures still looms. RealtyTrac reports that filings rose 7 percent in March from the previous month but are down 35 percent from March of last year, when RealtyTrac recorded the highest number of default filings since the company started in boom-time 2005. Foreclosure filings for the entire first quarter fell to a three-year low.

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).

Falling U.S. House Prices Could Restrain Economic Recovery / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: With the latest data pointing to a double-dip in home prices, it has become increasingly clear that the wobbly economic recovery won't be getting any help from the housing sector.

Existing home sales in February sank 9.6% from the previous month, while prices fell 5.2% to a median of $156,000, the lowest since April 2002. Existing homes comprise 90% of the housing market.

U.S. Housing Market Will Remain a Government Program / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Neeraj_Chaudhary

Recently, the Obama Administration seemed to flash a rare sign of laissez-faire thinking when it issued a report calling for the "winding down" of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two taxpayer-guaranteed institutions now responsible for backing at least 90% of the US mortgage market. In its press release, the Administration acknowledged that the private sector should be the "primary source of mortgage credit," and that their goal is to "bring private capital back to the mortgage market."

U.S. Housing Market Continues to Bleed / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

The collapse in housing prices is gaining pace proving that the Fed's bond purchasing program (QE2) has been an utter failure. While liquidity sloshes around in the equities markets, the distress on Main Street is more excruciating than ever. The release of the Case-Shiller index of property values on Tuesday, confirmed analysts worst fears, that the decline in prices is accelerating on the downside further weakening household balance sheets, wiping out precious home equity, and thrusting working class families back into the red.

Brazil's Housing Carnival Stokes Bubble Worries / Housing-Market / Brazil

By: Trader_Mark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre we in the early to mid stages of a bubble forming in Brazilian real estate?   Who can tell - with the global liquidity tsunami gushing in every direction, there has to be other areas other than commodities where dislocations are forming.  I found this interesting piece while looking over the news for Brazilian homebuilder Gafisa (GFA). While the "mass" mortgage market is still relatively new in Brazil - hence a whole slew of new potential buyers can now enter the market - some of the anecdotes in this Reuters story are eerily similar to those in the U.S. circa 2005.

Economic Depression in America: U.S. Housing Markets Double Dip / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Mike_Whitney

The housing market is now in full retreat. This week, the Commerce Department reported that sales of new homes plunged nearly 17 percent in February to a 250,000 annual pace. That's a record low. At the same time, the median price fell 8.9 percent from February of last year. The news comes on the heels of Monday's equally-dismal report that showed existing home sales dropped 9.6 percent in February. These are Depression era stats and builders know it which is why they're unloading homes as cheaply as possible. It's been 5 years since housing prices peaked in July 2006, and the market is still nowhere near the bottom. In fact, the rate of decline is accelerating. This is shaping up to be the worst spring in history.

Housing Market Double Dip and Economic Growth / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEconomic data continues to reinforce the reality that a housing double dip has in fact begun. Were it not for the 2010 tax credits there would likely have just been one dip and we would be further along the process of clearing supply than we are today. Regardless, it is here and the question then becomes what, if any impact will it have on economic growth.
