(Abby Liebing) In the midst of a growing housing and economic crisis, Wall Street investors are using this as an opportunity to purchase rental properties. Two investment funds backed by Goldman Sachs bought a community of Florida homes for $45 million, WFLA reported.

(Ray Parisi) An over-the-top modern mansion in Bel Air was listed for $87.8 million for an auction this week. But the highest bid came in just under $45.8 million, according to the home’s seller, dermatologist-turned-developer Alex Khadavi.
“Horrible, Horrible, Horrible!” was how Khadavi characterized the auction results to CNBC. He filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection two weeks after putting the home on the market last year.

In the event the crypto exchange goes bankrupt, Coinbase says, its users might lose all the cryptocurrency stored in their accounts too.

Are we heading into another real estate bubble / crash? Those who say “no” see the housing shortage as real, while those who say “yes” see the demand as a reflection of the Federal Reserve’s artificial goosing of the housing market via its unprecedented purchases of mortgage-backed securities and “easy money” financial conditions.

Over the last several weeks, readers have become aware of an emerging housing affordability crisis as US mortgage rates continued their near-vertical ascent, risks jeopardizing the housing market boom. The 30 Year fixed mortgage rate has jumped a staggering 177bps this year, reaching the highest since 1Q10, with Bankrate data showing mortgage rates are above 5%.
While it is traditionally viewed as a B-grade indicator, the February consumer credit report from the Federal Reserve was an absolute stunner and confirmed what we have been saying for month: any excess savings accumulated by the US middle class are long gone, and in their place Americans have unleashed a credit-card fueled spending spree.
Here are the shocking numbers: in November, consumer credit exploded by a whopping $41.8 billion, more than double the expected $18.1 billion print, nearly five times more than the upward revised $8.9 billion January number (revised from $6.8 billion), the highest on record!

Just days after Germany reported the highest inflation in generation (with February headline CPI soaring at a 7.6% annual pace and blowing away all expectations), giving locals a distinctly unpleasant deja vu feeling even before the Russian invasion of Ukraine broke what few supply chains remained and sent prices even higher into the stratosphere…
(J.G. Collins) Someone once said that you never actually “buy” a home. Instead, you merely commit to paying an annuity: the mortgage.
That’s largely true. The price and “value” of homes for the overwhelming majority of homeowners is a function of home buyers’ ability to make payments.
And with the Federal Reserve signaling further interest rate hikes, home buyers and sellers—and assorted others who use credit—will incur knock-on effects from those increases.
30 Year fixed mortgage rates have jumped 160bp this year, reaching the highest since November 2018, with the latest Freddie Mac data showing an acceleration in mortgage rates which jumped a quarter point in just the past week, from 4.42% to 4.67%. This is an even bigger increase than we discussed in our recent housing comment.
And while the benchmark 10y Treasury yield has also risen, the increase is “only” 94bp. In other words, there has also been a significant widening in mortgage spreads, by 66bp to 243bp. This could be explained by the Fed’s accelerated pivot from QE to QT, the latter of which we expect will be announced at the next FOMC meeting in May.
As discussed one week ago in “Housing Affordability Is About To Crash The Most On Record“, the move higher in rates means that an already record affordability shock will be even worse! Continue reading
Over the past few months we have repeated a statement which – because it is controversial and because it is true – sparked feigned outrage among the financially illiterate macrotourists (which these days is the vast majority of the financial commentariat): we said that in light of the galloping inflation which has crushed BIden’s approval ratings and has ensured a landslide loss for Democrats in the midterms, the Fed desperately wants to create a recession (and, at this rate, it will get it).

(Bruce Wilds) Before saying anything else, it is important to note, when it comes to the major currencies, it is safe to assume they are manipulated by central banks. It is in the best interest of Central Bankers to keep them trading in a rather tight pattern as so not to rock the foundation of the global financial system. On top of the stress being placed upon economies due to the war in Ukraine, the one thing bankers don’t want to deal with is the growing fear the fiat monetary system is about to fail.
The policies of Joe Biden exclude an entire wave of young citizens from a critical component of the American Dream.
As America descends into oligarchy, conglomerates and their affiliated political stooges manipulate markets and public policy to centralize power and disenfranchise the historic drivers of social cohesion in America, especially vibrant churches, prosperous small businesses, and thriving families. Regarding families, a pillar of family formation and lasting generational strength in America long revolved around private property, the creation and sustenance of ownership over single-family housing.

(Greg Jaffe) WOODBRIDGE, Va. — Until last summer, Khalid Payenda was Afghanistan’s finance minister, overseeing a $6 billion budget — the lifeblood of a government fighting for its survival in a war that had long been at the center of U.S. foreign policy.
Now, seven months after Kabul had fallen to the Taliban, he was at the wheel of his Honda Accord, headed north on I-95 from his home in Woodbridge, Va., toward Washington, D.C. Payenda swiped at his phone and opened the Uber app, which offered his “quest” for the weekend. For now his success was measured in hundreds of dollars rather than billions.
One of the core staples of the past 40 years, and an anchor propping up the dollar’s reserve status, was a global financial system based on the petrodollar – this was a world in which oil producers would sell their product to the US (and the rest of the world) for dollars, which they would then recycle the proceeds in dollar-denominated assets and while investing in dollar-denominated markets, explicitly prop up the USD as the world reserve currency, and in the process backstop the standing of the US as the world’s undisputed financial superpower.

(Stephanie Seneff and GreenMedInfo) Since December 2020, when several novel unprecedented vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 began to be approved for emergency use, there has been a worldwide effort to get these vaccines into the arms of as many people as possible as fast as possible.

Most governments have embraced the notion that these vaccines are the only path towards resolution of this pandemic, which is crippling the economies of many countries.

Simply Put: The pandemic is to mandate an experimental gene therapy that the CDC and FDA like to refer to as a “vaccine.” That “vaccine” is for purposes of getting everyone onto a vaccine ID passport. The passport is to force everyone into the new global social credit system. That system is to bring the global population to full obedience, as the globalists control everyone’s access and spending to anything and everything in life, through the use of the new CBDC (central bank digital currency) system they are building toward. And, the icing on the cake for the globalists who orchestrated this – is depopulation.

“It’s fair to say that the Evergrande situation and its repercussions on the broader property market will have a far greater direct impact on Chinese growth than any of the other regulatory crackdowns.”
Yesterday, when covering the non-stop drama surrounding China’s most insolvent property developer, Evergrande, we said that it would be remarkably ironic if Evergrande were to announce a default – which everyone knows is coming – today, on the 13th anniversary of Lehman’s bankruptcy filing on Sept 15, 2008.
Last night on CNN 351,000 “Yes” votes disappeared in an instant during live coverage of the Newsom Recall Election in California.

(Jacob Passy) The frequency of bidding wars on homes has dropped to the lowest level this year — the latest sign that the housing market may be cooling and reverting back to its usual seasonal patterns.
While home buyers are still more likely than not to face a bidding war on a property they wish to purchase, competition in the nation’s housing market is cooling.
A new report from Redfin RDFN, -2.39% found that 58.8% of the offers on homes written by the company’s real-estate agents faced competition in August. That’s down from 62.1% the month prior and a peak of 74.3% reached back in April. Redfin defines a bidding war as any situation where there are at least two competing bids on a home.

(Sundance) The Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) released the August review [DATA HERE] of producer prices for last month.

“If my immunity is as good, indeed, very likely better, than that conferred by the vaccine, there doesn’t seem to be any rational basis for discriminating against my form of immunity and requiring me to get a different form of immunity.”
(Emma Colton) A University of California professor is suing the school system’s Board of Regents and president over a coronavirus vaccine mandate, which he argues he does not need because of his natural immunity against the virus.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – The US government could run out of money as early as next month to service its debt, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said on Wednesday, reiterating her warning that emergency measures put in place to raise cash could be exhausted soon.
“Given this uncertainty, the Treasury Department is not able to provide a specific estimate of how long the extraordinary measures will last,” Yellen said in a copy of her letter to Pelosi, released by the department. “However, based on our best and most recent information, the most likely outcome is that cash and extraordinary measures will be exhausted during the month of October.”

Despite a plunge in home builder sentiment, after June’s unexpected drop “due to an unprecedented price spike”, Pending Home Sales were expected to join both new- and existing-home sales with a modest rebound in July. But that was very wrong as July’s US Pending home sales plunged 1.8% MoM (against +0.3% MoM expected), sending the year-over-year sales comp down 9.5%.
That is a second straight monthly decline in pending home sales…
(ZeroHedge) Dr. Anthony Fauci and the rest of President Biden’s COVID advisors have been proven wrong about “the science” of COVID vaccines yet again.
