US home buyers revive memories of bubble - FT.com

US home buyers revive memories of bubble - FT.com | real estate investors | Scoop.it
James Jeddeloh, a 61-year-old consultant from Oregon, loves to play golf in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Max's insight:

One reason to be suspect of the current recovery, more in the article.  The current recover is being propped up by low interest rates.  I think this is good for the economy right now.  However, this makes the price of homes appear to be relatively cheaper than when interest rates are higher.  Thus, homeowners buying homes in this current market will need to absorb this cost when they sell their homes in a market with higher rates.

Canary in the coal mine?  With data from the S&P/Experian Consumer Default Indices showing first mortgage default rates have been ticking upward since
Max's insight:

Here is some potential bad news to temper all the real estate market optimism.

The rate increased from a post-recession low of 1.36% in September, to 1.47% in October, 1.58% in November, reaching 1.68% in December.

 

Check out the graph and let me know your thoughts.

Existing Home Sales Unexpectedly Fall 1%

Existing Home Sales Unexpectedly Fall 1% | real estate investors | Scoop.it
Home resales unexpectedly fell in December as fewer people put their properties on the market, although not by enough to derail the boost housing will likely provide to the economy this year.
Max's insight:

As the number of REO sales decreases we should expect a total decrease of exhisiting home sales. 

 

We have seen a slight increase of conventional exhisiting home sales, new home sales and new home starts.  So the housing economy is still headed in the right direction, it will just take a significant ammount of time to rebound completly.

 

I do expect home sales to continue decreasing throughout 2013.
