  • 9. We’ll get some type of seasonal bounce – we always do. The size and scope will likely be small as compared to 2009, but it will be a breatherCopyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 10. • Tax credit stimulated demand temporarily  Fewer sellers required price reductions to sell.• Sellers are feeling distressed again  Price Reductions on the rise and nearly back to crash levels. Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010

  • 13.  Robo-signing QE2 Dodd-Frank Mortgage Rates Mortgage Interest Rate deduction Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 14.  Banks were selling into market strength seen from Homebuyer Tax Credit Market picked up, and banks increased the rate of foreclosures to get assets through the pipeline Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 15.  Difficult to see effects Baked into prices? Home Price Inflation - A Counterfactual argument (Note: See Altos Research White Paper: “QE2 & the Housing Market”) Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 16.  In 2004 alone, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac purchased $175,000,000,000 in subprime mortgage securities, which accounted for 44 percent of the market that year, and from 2005 through 2007, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac purchased approximately $1,000,000,000,000 in subprime and Alt-A loans, while Fannie Mae’s acquisitions of mortgages with less than 10 percent down payments almost tripled. The conservatorship for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has potentially exposed taxpayers to upwards of $5,300,000,000,000 worth of risk. The hybrid public-private status of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac is untenable and must be resolved to assure that consumers are offered and receive residential mortgage loans on terms that reasonably reflect their ability to repay the loans and that are understandable and not unfair, deceptive, or abusive. Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 17.  Would lead to an increasing 3.5% down payment mortgages as FHA market share rises Any significant downward shift in prices will lead to negative equity situations. Would force government to further bolster the market until we reach the Keynesian endpoint in 201?, 202?, 203? No political will to seek ST pain of alternative Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 18.  2009-10:Definitely helped the market, but was temporarily. Diminishing effect in ‘10 vs. ‘09. May make sense to re-introduce in 2012 or ‘13 Mortgage interest deduction: appears here to stay. (See NAR/MBAA uproar, Deficit reduction committee) Unequivacally shows that tax credits do impact markets Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010

  • 20.  Not just the number of homes, but the quality of homes Bifurcated Market - Don’t confuse price with value. Prices will fall not only because of demand weakness but the available stock This might also case a quick jump in perceived home values because of cash infused to asset Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 21. • Investors and speculators provide liquidity to the market.• Motor oil between Bank REOs and “regular” buyers (i.e. first-time home buyers)• First-time homebuyers with 3.5% down typically don’t have cash sitting around to fix the roof and re-install stripped copper pipes• Investors worked us out of the S&L crisis and can pull us out now Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 22.  Even 2.0-2.5% GDP growth is growth More people should have jobs in Dec ‘11 than Dec ‘10 Even the hint of higher mortgage rates may scare a few buyers into the market. (See Congressional Tax Debate) Mortgage rate increases still put them at historical lows The good news is that we know more bad news is here Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 23.  Nationally, prices will be lower by 5-10% Some seasonal bounce in Q1, Q2. Bounce will likely be more like 2008, 2010 2011 will mean lower prices because of:  Rising Inventory  Quality of Inventory  Less Demand (homeownership rates, consumer exhaustion, consumer trepidation) The Contrarian Argument - There’s nothing but bad news out there, so that must mean we’re hitting the trough Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
  • 24. • All markets are not equal• Do your research: “one-size-fits-all” model will lead your astray• Wide Distribution of 4- and 12-week price changes over 20,000 zip codes in the Altos Research Market Analytics Platform Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010

  • 27.  Not yet. But it won’t be down forever. 2011: Expect 5-10% downside 2012-2014ish  Stabilize and slowly rise as unemployment lags (see Bernanke, “60 minutes” interview)  Mix of elevated unemployment, high inventory, and low quality will keep prices low even as transactions pick up over time  Good for getting in as long as you don’t need to get out Copyright Altos Research | | 12/09/2010
