Is Us Housing Heading For A Double Dip?

Recommended Posts


U.S. home values are on a clear downward trend, hurt in part by foreclosures, and analysts may soon start talking about a “double-dip” by spring, according to the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index report.

The weakness in housing is also related to the end of the Homebuyers’ Tax Credit Program that expired in summer, and the September Case-Shiller data adds fodder to concerns that the U.S. economy remains on shaky ground.

On a national level, home prices in September were 1.5 percent below their year-earlier levels, and 18 out of the 20 surveyed cities—and both the survey’s 10-City and 20-City composites—registered price declines from the previous month.

Housing is at the center of the worst economic downturn since the 1930s. The so-called Great Recession marks the end of an almost 30-year boom in credit that peaked with speculative fervor focused on housing. But as credit tightened, housing values stopped rising, which led to a burst in prices that exposed societywide indebtedness, badly damaging the global economy.

Mid 2003 prices for the UK would be £125K or £160K adjusted for inflation. Nationwide house price index for Q3 2010 is £167K

Oddly their UK affordability index/income multiple for Q2 2003 is 3.9 and Q3 2010 is 4.5?
