Tory BrExit Chaos Cripples UK Economy, Wrecks Housing Market Confidence / Housing-Market / BrExit

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It was all supposed to be so straight forward, the people of Britain vote in a referendum, the results of which the politicians then carry out. Unfortunately, as the latest saga in an unfolding 18 month long BrExit nightmare shows that the Governments implementation of Brexit is turning out disastrously which has had a confidence eroding effect on the UK economy and housing market.

The general public, me included have long since become bored to death with the relentless Tory infighting that the mainstream media obsess over, one of deal or no deal coverage in the count down to the final deadline, though where the EU is concerned they are experts at kicking the can down the road so don't be surprised to hear news that the deadlines have all been kicked some months or even a year down the road.

Buying Your First Home? Here’s How to Save Money / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Dylan_Moran

You’ve been renting since moving out of your parents’ house and you could say, it was a good few years living in flats and apartments. But you’ve reached a point in your life when renting is becoming exhausting and you want to settle down in one place that you will call home for the years to come.

Buying your first house is an important life decision, but it’s not the easiest to make if you’re not financially prepared for it. In fact, a recent survey of 13,000 adults discovered that only 39% of millennials are capable of making a standard down payment on a home, and only one in five individuals is capable of paying the minimum amount required to secure a home loan. The good news is; there are ways to save money on your first home without drowning in debt.

By: MoneyFacts

Moneyfacts UK Mortgage Trends Treasury Report data, not yet published, shows the average five-year fixed rate has increased for the first time in four months, seeing this average reach its highest point in almost two years, effectively cancelling out any gains made in that time as a result.

How "Free Money" Helped Create Sizzling Housing Market & REIT Gains / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Dan_Amerman

Housing prices and the associated REIT returns have worked very differently in the United States since the recession of 2001. The increasing financialization of the real estate markets by Wall Street, and the aggressive and unconventional interventions by the Federal Reserve over that time, have combined in multiplicative fashion to produce new and volatile sources of housing profits and losses.

One such change has been the creation of an extremely powerful profit engine for housing, that most real estate investors have not been taking into account. Indeed, there is a strong mathematical case to be made that "yield curve spread compression" has supported and enabled the substantial majority of housing price gains for homeowners and investors on a national average basis since the beginning of 2014.

Home Equity Release Interest Rates Are on the Rise / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: MoneyFacts

The equity release market has continued to evolve, not only by allowing customers to release more equity from their homes, but also in terms of providers offering more flexibility, such as the inclusion of drawdown options.

While the equity release market is nowhere near as volatile as the residential mortgage market in terms of interest rate changes, it has not been left unscathed by recent cost increases. The latest analysis by Moneyfacts.co.uk reveals that over the last quarter, more than half of the 11 lenders in the lifetime mortgage market have increased interest rates within their range (Aviva, Hodge Lifetime, Just, LV=, Legal & General, Vernon Building Society).

The Cycle Saving Home Buyers $3,000 Per Year Just Ran Out Of Fuel / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Dan_Amerman

Home buyers in every city and state have been benefiting from a powerful financial cycle for almost five years. Most people are not aware of this cycle, but it has lowered the average monthly mortgage payment for home buyers on a national basis by about $250 per month since the end of 2013.

The interest rate cycle in question is one of "yield curve spread" expansion and compression, with yield curve spreads being the difference between long term and short term interest rates. This interest rate spread has been going through a compression phase in its ongoing cycle, meaning that the gap between  long term interest rates and short term interest rates has been falling sharply in recent years.

UK Average Mortgage Fee Highest in Over Five Years / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

Remortgage activity is currently high as borrowers seek to get the best deal after the base rate rise. As a result, many providers are trying to look attractive as possible. However, although many lenders are reducing rates to appeal to remortgagors, this trend is not being seen for arrangement fees. In fact, the latest research from Moneyfacts.co.uk shows that average mortgage fees* are on the rise, increasing by £15 since August to stand at £1,005 this month – the highest average recorded in more than five years.

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

The availability, quality, reliability, and pricing of real estate data is one of the biggest challenges facing real estate stakeholders. A report published in the Mediterranean Journal of Social Sciences suggest that “absence or inadequate reliable data will result in inappropriate decision or even no decision at all.”

Where Have the Affordable Homes Gone? / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

Bubbles are self-defeating. Their success is what eventually kills them.

The same is true for cycles.

Take the urbanization cycle for example…

As a population urbanizes, people get wealthier. But more affluent urbanites have fewer kids and that slows future demographic growth for the next generation.

UK Mortgage Market Split on Base Rate Hike / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: MoneyFacts

A base rate rise can cause an element of uncertainty in the mortgage market, as it can often be difficult to predict how providers are likely to react to the news. Now, a month on from the Bank of England’s decision to increase the base rate to 0.75%, Moneyfacts.co.uk assesses the impact this rise has had on the mortgage market.

Rent Your House: The Ultimate US Real Estate Strategy / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

I enjoyed two recent articles by Andrea Riquier at MarketWatch.

The first was “The new housing play: helping priced-out renters become long-distance landlords.”

It was a strategy aimed at people living in unaffordable areas – like San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, or New York…

By renting there to avoid both high purchase costs and a major bubble burst (when it inevitably comes), you free up your borrowing power to buy a house in an affordable area where renting for income is more lucrative, and far less risky.

Hardest US Housing Market Places to Live - Look Out Middle Class / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

In San Francisco, a household now needs an income of $188,000 to afford rent for the average two-bedroom house or apartment with 30% of the household income spent on housing.

The problem is that the median income is only $103,801.

Housing is 81% out of reach!

And this is true across the country as well.

America’s Suburbs Are Making a Comeback / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

Lately, I’ve been focusing a lot on real estate.

There are starting to be clear signs of extremes in pricing, and high rent burdens.

Cities are starting to crack on the high end.

It’s what I’ve forecasting – that this second bubble burst would start on the high end and work down. Unlike the last bubble, which started on the low end with the subprime defaults.

First Time Buyers Need to ‘boost the affordability’ of Their Move Alone  / Housing-Market / UK Housing

By: Submissions

Recent reports by the Financial Times note that ‘more needs to be done to boost affordability for capital’s first-time buyers’. Well, duh.

Renting in London is prohibitively expensive and buying is perhaps even more so, in the short term at least. In fact, recent studies conducted by The Times found that a first-time buyer in London needs a salary of £100,000 to get on the property ladder. (Basically, you need to be a wealthy financial sector worker.)

America Where to Live, Most Desirable Best US Cities / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

There was an update to the rankings of the most desirable cities to live in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report.

Colorado Springs sprung into first place for the first time. I’ve been there, and can understand why they picked the place.

It’s beautiful, at the foot of dramatic mountains (Pike’s Peak), close to the glorious Broadmoor Resort, and only one hour from one of the most attractive larger cities, Denver, which comes in at number 10 on the list.

The Death of the US Real Estate Dream / Housing-Market / US Housing

By: Harry_Dent

In I showed how Japan’s first and more massive real estate bubble peaked in 1991. And then showed how it crashed right along our bubble model into 2013.

The difference was, it never bounced. Even when its Millennial generation came along to buy houses again.

A rise of “dyers” (sellers) were offsetting the rise of Millennial buyers.

Now let’s look at the U.S. bubble – or our double bubble.
