Recovered or back to a bubble?

From HousingWire:

CoreLogic: Housing market nearly recovered from recession

CoreLogic, a global property information, analytics and data-enabled solutions provider, released a report outlining the real estate economy from 2006 to 2017, showing that the housing market has nearly completely recovered from the recent recession.

In some areas, residential areas began to hit their peak levels as early as 2005, according to the company’s Evaluating the Housing Market Since the Great Recession report. The majority of home prices collapsed in 2007.

During the recession, home prices fell 33% nationwide, hitting their lowest in March 2011. Since then, home prices have risen once again by 51%. The average home prices is now 1% higher than its 2006 level and the average annual equity increase was $14,888 in the third quarter of 2017. This indicates the housing market has recovered in many parts of the U.S., according to the report.

But while, overall, the U.S. has pushed past the recession, some states are still struggling to return to their pre-recession price levels. For example, Nevada saw the greatest drop after the housing crash as its home prices fell 60% from their peak levels.

Since then, home prices increased 93% from their trough, but remain 23% below their pre-recession peaks. What’s more, 9% of mortgaged properties in the state remained underwater as of the third quarter of 2017.

While some states saw their home prices fall drastically during the recession, others only experienced slight changes. North Dakota’s decline was just 2% due in part to the energy boom, and home prices in the state have since risen 48% above their previous peak.

“Homeowners in the United States experienced a run-up in prices from the early 2000s to 2006, and then saw the trend reverse with steady declines through 2011,” CoreLogic Chief economist Frank Nothaft said. “After reaching bottom in 2011, our national price index is up more than 50%.”

“West Coast states, such as California, Washington and Oregon are seeing some of largest trough-to-current growth rates in home prices,” Nothaft said. “Greater demand and lower supply, as well as booming job markets, have given some of the hardest-hit housing markets a boost in home prices. Yet, many are still not back to pre-crash levels.”

    So I was able to get my rental last night in Central FLorida by Orlando. The homes for rent sold for about 400,000 recently the new construction prices mid 300,000 HOA fees are about 400 a month. The new version of the timeshare I guess is fueled aAirbnb

    So, the tariff on steel and aluminum will weaken China significantly while increasing jobs and wages for American workers. All done in one swoop! I bet Oblama wishes he would have thought of it.

    Any time real estate rises in Florida, it’s never been a good sign.

    My parents got burned when my father accepted a high paying position in central florida. He ended up losing it half a year in and they bought a home for $600k in 1988. A few members of the original Orlando Magic were our neighbors in this development. He took nearly a $200k hit when he sold. That same home was sold recently for $580k. 30 years, it sold less than the original price. That’s pathetic.

    My cousins also moved from Boston to Florida in 2004 only to watch their home drop in value and were surrounded by vacants. I also know a family friend who bought 3 condos in Orlando to rent in 2006. Her rent never covered the mortgage and still doesn’t.

  15. Blue Ribbon Teacher says:

    I think the ultimate course of action is to simply default on all of our bonds to China. I think that’s the plan. They cheat on trade, we cheat on debt.

    Yes, Trump is a very stable genius who was first to think of tariffs. Let’s see what GOP is saying:

    -Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah said the tariffs would be a “huge job-killing tax hike.”

    -Sen. Ben Sasse, said this is something you expect from a “leftist administration,” not a Republican commander in chief

    -Sen. Pat Roberts, who is the chair of the Senate agriculture committee, also blasted the decision for the tariffs and warned of retaliation.

    “They’ve already done this on washing machines and solar panels and the sorghum producer, one of the rare crops where we were making a profit, got targeted by China,” he said. “Every time you do this, you get a retaliation. And agriculture is the number one target. I think this is terribly counterproductive for the (agriculture) economy”

    Fab – again delving deep into the mire of dissonance?

  25. Fast Eddie says:

    The steel industry on CNBC this morning was touting the tariff as a win.

  26. Independent says:

    A couple of points to consider when evaluating the recent steel industry decision.

    Is the US steel industry at capacity and if not, more steel made in the US will be used assuming price is better.

    If US steel industry is at capacity, will the top companies exporting steel to the US be impacted by the tariff – last time our country did this, I believe Canada and Mexico were exempt from the tariffs.

    Most of the imported steel into the US comes from Canada, correct?

    If most of our imported steel comes from places that will receive a waiver on steel tariffs, then what is the purpose of the steel tariff?

  27. leftwing says:

    Re: Fab’s deep conspiracy posts…..The better the economy, markets, and mainstream mood, the more unhinged the Left becomes…….Again big picture I’m happy. Let them keep piling on ahead of the 2018 elections. They look nuts, and the swing vote doesn’t elect nuts.

    On FL, have no desire to be there. Hell, as I kid I never even visited Disney nor did my kids. I do have a buddy who’s made a killing on real estate in naples over the last 15 years or so. May take a look eventually at some coastal or keys properties.

    There is an AirBNB business model for rentals out there if one is so inclined…..Just need to be careful, many HOA are establishing minimum rental terms.

    No other man in America could survive in his job the way Trump has despite vast evidence of sexual misconduct. If Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Steve Wynn and many others pay the price, why isn’t it time for Trump to step down and pay his?

    Because you can’t decide to move your steel source over to China.

    Oddest thing to me about the trade talk over past 2 years is media ignores the biggest trade war of them all, the softwood lumber dispute with Canada. Latest battle happened during campaign and in first year of Trump’s presidency. US just slapped tariffs and duties totaling 20% on Canadian imports. But nobody noticed, and the NAR didn’t make noise even though theoretically houses should be more expensive to build and remodel.

    The media is embarrassing itself again. They are so shallow they only report on trade when Trump tweets about it.

  41. chicagofinance says:

    Because everyone knew about Trump’s sexual misconduct BEFORE he was placed in his current job. The below people listed flew under the radar while carrying out there transgressions. Trump is Teflon for now because none of the allegations rise to the level of an incremental change in perception. If the stock market tanks, along with the economy, then I guarantee that your wishes will have a greater likelihood of being granted.

    Worst part, they attacked Clinton for years, but ignore it when it comes to their guy.

    “Because everyone knew about Trump’s sexual misconduct BEFORE he was placed in his current job.”

  45. No One says:

    If Trump fools around in the White House people should get upset, but they won’t because if he’s caught he’ll get Jerry Falwell Jr to come perform a live TV exorcism to cast the devil out of him, and then will be given a clean slate and forgiven by his supporters. Sean Hannity will cover the whole thing and testify to his purity.

    We actually do export some things to China, mostly food. When Obama put a tariff on Chinese tires China replied with a tariff on “Chicken Paws”, which are literally chicken feet. Nobody eats chicken feet in the US and the Chinese love US chicken feet. The reason they love US chicken feet is because we breed much bigger chickens, hence the feet are bigger. Also “baby” carrots. They don’t have the machinery to make baby carrots. (“Baby” carrots are actually made from huge deformed regular carrots).

    Chicken feet ain’t putting a scratch on the trade deficit. I’d sacrifice the chicken feet industry for a healthy domestic industry in other things. That being said, I buy chicken feet. It’s a great additive to a rich stock at a low price.

  71. leftwing says:

    Fabs, funny you link to NY Magazine. I subscribed to it since at least the days of Spy Magazine (‘short fingered vulgarian Donald Trump’ lol).

    Literally just let my subscription expire. Last issue came this week. It has become unreadable since Trump. It was drifting that way, but slogging through the occasional partisan ridiculousness was worth the local articles and food, culture, etc pages. Not any more. John Chait, and many of his colleagues, are completely unhinged.

    In any case, the referenced article at hand clearly says the Saudis had their own highly specific reasons to blockade Qatar. Through some contorted logic it then makes the conclusion that somehow Kushner was involved. Can’t follow it.

    Bottom line is that, no secret, the Kushner family is in at least a half a billion dollar hole that needs to be fixed by an equity contribution and a refi. That’s not news. Absent the hedgies there are about a dozen bankers and a few dozen well known oligarchs in that business able to write that size check. Given their positions, it is no surprise they would be through the White House under any Administration.

    Unless someone can come up with a specific quid pro quo for real consideration all you have is a not unexpected coincidence at best or at worse a mutual trading of access for access that is the everyday currency of politics everywhere.

    Until Mueller or someone nails down specifics conspiracy theories like these are just rabid liberal wishlist blather, analogous to and on the same scale of the birther movement under Obama. Which is why I am reading my last issue of NY Mag after about a quarter century as a subscriber.

  75. grim says:

    From Otteau a couple days ago:

    Increase of NJ Purchase Contracts Retract

    In January, the number of home purchase contracts in New Jersey for that month was the highest on record, exceeding the prior peak in 2005 and signaling continuing strong demand due to accelerating economic growth and a rising home-ownership rate. Still, the 2% gain over last year was the smallest increase in recent years, which is largely due to unwarranted hysteria in the wake of widespread misinformation about the real effects of tax reform.

    Shifting to the supply side of the equation, inventory remains constricted, which is limiting choices for home buyers. The number of homes being offered for sale today in New Jersey has fallen to its lowest point since 2005, having declined by 4,400 (-11%) over the past year. This is also about 39,000 (-53%) fewer homes on the market compared to the cyclical high in 2011. Today’s unsold inventory equates to 4.7 months of sales (non-seasonally adjusted), which is lower than one year ago, when it was 5.5 months.

    Currently, 19 out of New Jersey’s 21 counties have less than 8.0 months of supply, whichis a balance point for home prices. Middlesex County has the strongest market conditions in the state with 3.2 months of supply, followed by Hudson, Union, Monmouth, Essex, Passaic, Bergen, Morris, Somerset and Burlington Counties, which all have 4.2 months of supply or less. The counties with the largest amount of unsold inventory (8 months or greater) are concentrated in the southern portion of the state including Atlantic (8.9) and Salem (10.1), however, these counties have shown significant improvement and are beginning to exhibit strengthening conditions.

  76. The Great Pumpkin says:

    I don’t know. Writing on the wall says that this is no conspiracy. It’s a federal investigation with many indictments. The conspiracy is thinking this investigation is just a witch hunt to get trump. Mueller is not the type to go on witch hunts, once you realize this, the writing is on the wall.

    My 2018 real estate predictions:

    New Jersey home prices underperform the national average again. According to NJAR data, 2017 house prices through November are unchanged compared to the previous year – $305,000 versus $305,000. I expect similar stagnation next year, I’ll call it a -2% to +2% range for 2018 in NJ (point estimate = -0.3%), compared to national appreciation in the mid-single-digits (point estimate = 5.1% using the S&P CoreLogic Case Shiller 20 City Home Price Index). Hudson County will put up the strongest price growth in New Jersey. These predictions are for the period of January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018.

    Hysterical TDS victims, including NJ Advance Media reporter Jonathan “So Slanted” Salant and Rep. Josh “NAR Puppet” Gottheimer, have predicted double-digit NJ home price declines caused by the Trump tax bill. Declines of this magnitude won’t happen, and when they don’t, I will reach out to Salant and Gottheimer and ask them to update their expectations publicly.

    Bullsh1t. I don’t care what numbers they display, there’s no inventory even close to 2005. And if that’s the case, I want 20% more than I paid and the contract will contain a stipulation that states you need to feed the squirrels.

    MAZEL TOV, @POTUS! We didn’t think you could do it but in just ONE year you’ve played more golf than Reagan, Kennedy, Truman, Carter, George W. Bush, and your boy Andrew Jackson COMBINED!
    I can’t think of a better reason for us to spend $56,014,937! Amazing day for the USA!

    “I’m going to be working for you, I’m not going to have time to go play golf,”
    Trump in 2016. Trump lies without shame, especially to himself.

    I wonder if the tariffs are just a way to distract from hope hicks resigning and other people getting their security clearances downgraded

    Yes the Saudis have their own issues with Qatar, but we were always holding them in check.

    I can’t wait for Tillersons memoir. It will be something like
    “WTF, did these numb-nuts forget we have a Fcuking Big Base in Qatar !”

    Parts of Ireland seeing 3ft of snow, that is unheard of.

    Thought you libs would be happy to have him out of the office. By your measure $56m ought to be a bargain to keep him away from his desk, no? LOL.

    My friend received the same message. Went out and bought a generator. Power came back on today. He lives in a pa town that borders nj.

    My family slept 3 in a bed last night. House temp was 55 with no heat and electricity. Glad to have my power back.
