Twice as Bad as Mainstream Reports – WSE Pro Housing Report

While 2/3 of metro markets in the US have reached “affordable” levels by traditional metrics the problem areas of California, Florida, Nevada, and Arizona have not improved, and weakness is continuing or worsening in some key northeastern markets. These markets represent the majority of the total housing value and the total mortgage portfolio of the US. As a result, when data is weighted by market value of each market, the national decline is now over 18% over the past year, not 7-9% as reported in the financial infomercial media. Until the conditions in the big markets begin to improve, there can be no broad based recovery in the housing and mortgage markets. Furthermore, any recovery hinges on mortgage rates staying low. If US Treasury yields continue the rise they began in March, then no recovery is likely for the foreseeable future.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
