The 'Paranormal' Real Estate Market


"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Cat: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn't have come here." -- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Understanding today's dynamic is essential for anyone looking to own, invest, finance, and sell real estate - things are not what they seem...

FED Chairman Addresses Homebuilders
Bernanke seems to think that the entire housing industry revolves around low interest rates. And yet, these historically low rates are failing to improve the housing market. When will the FED chairman realize that his efforts to forcibly depress rates at all costs is causing huge and very destructive unintended consequences for our industry:
1. The current interest rate environment has driven out all private sector lending - the industry is 100% dependent on Fannie, Freddie, and the FHA. Leaving huge swaths of the real estate ecosystem without access to credit. More expensive credit is better than none.
2. Low rates through QE (money printing) is keeping input costs for homebuilders high - negating the effects of low rates.
3. Fannie and Freddie are insolvent institutions dependent on the taxpayer with the FHA nearing insolvency and $50 billion bailout - without a viable, private sector mortgage market our industry is being put in a very dangerous position thanks to his policies.
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Occupy Wall Street has a legitimate complaint. Sadly, they all too often direct their angst in the wrong direction. While we float in a sea of freshly minted money courtesy of our central bankers and unfathomable levels of debt courtesy of President Obama and a spendthrift congress - much of this money is flowing right into big corporations.
