Are we recreating the 2007 housing bubble?

More data today on how we might be remaking the housing bubble

housing bubbleMore stories today that all seem to relate to one another. They fit together with past topics we have covered that leave me wondering what is going on with how much debt is being willingly and even happily taken on by consumers – and it looks like folks are willing to take on lots more and potentially feed a housing/debt bubble. As I have said before, it feels just a little bit too familiar. So are we resurrecting the housing bubble that kicked us around so horribly in 2007? Sadly, it looks like we might. Lets look at the latest numbers and see where we are.

Alternative Credit Scores – That Ignore Credit

Measuring credit by not measuring it Just when we thought the crazy train could not pick up any more speed – Congress starts pushing the idea that Fannie and Freddie should change the model they use to evaluate the credit worthiness of borrowers. Of course, when you read what you want to do, …

More evidence of a coming debt bubble?

Could another debt bubble bring a real estate downturn?

debt bubbleA very interesting look at stats relating to consumer confidence and real wage growth. It could be a sign that the public in general is really more confident than they should be. The big question is, could this lead to a debt bubble that threatens the overall economy and real estate?

There is also some interesting news on what graduates and students think is going to happen with their student loans – a big part of what just might be creating a debt bubble.

The latest numbers on the GDP are disappointing.

Luxury real estate is taking a big hit – we called it.

Home prices have reached new heights in many areas.

An investors eye look at Condos

HomeRepairReal estate investment success is about finding the deals that make sense. For a long time, I have always put condos at the bottom of the list for consideration for investing.

So today we are going to chat about how the best investments you can make are the ones that make money for you – no matter what they are. So for all you real estate investors and entrepreneurs, lets take another look at condos as investments.

The Fed And Interest Rates

PLUS: Consumer Confidence

There seems to be some confusion out there about consumer confidence. Some research shows it going up and others show it going down. Of course, the folks at the Fed are hot to focus on the ones that say confidence is up. However, they are also seeming to buy in to a pretty rosy picture of the economy that might not fit with what we have seen over the last couple of quarters. We will chat about this and see if we can come up with what makes sense.

There will also be some chatting about GDP and Inflation – you know, all that really sexy stuff. Keep in mind that these numbers absolutely effect you and we will discuss them a bit and discuss why.

We will also talk a bit about the price to rent ratio.

Consumer Confidence

Talking about how folks feel about real estate

Fannie Mae has released its Home Purchase Sentiment Index for April. We will take a look at how peoples viewpoints on real estate have changed and compare that to last months results – and see where folks are compared to the same time last year.

The report is a bit mixed in its results but gives us some ideas in terms of how sellers might just be getting more cozy with the idea of listing their home for sale. Of course, any increases to inventory would be a welcome change, but what will it take for home owners to take the plunge and become home sellers? There are some theories that fit the numbers we are seeing and we will discuss those on todays show.

Make sure to head on over to the show notes for my show about inventories to participate in this weeks poll!
