Consumer Confidence.Oct.2011

I’m sorry, but we need to “change” some things. After two years, we are not getting the consumer confidence where it needs to be.

The Consumer Confidence is sometimes referred to as the “key truth detector”. As the one report says; “Utter Lack of Confidence”.

Consumer Confidence is reported at 39.8 for October 2011.

There again appears to be a bottoming…one report I recently read suggested that it may be mid-2012 before the bottom appears. Nonetheless, this report is seeing some signs of a bottom in pricing…

Rebound Waits for young adults to enter the market

I picked this article out of the Sunday Star Tribune. As we know, the cycle has been to create more multi-family housing. So when will the cycle swing back to single-family home construction?

Existing Home Sales Continue to Falter in September

ExistingHomeSalesFalter in September

This is about where it ended last year. My overall thoughts are that without any government involvement and the market is showing signs of stabilization. Prices are down, but overall sales are about the same.

If you read back in my blog I have the existing home sales data going back around 15 years.

My Ontario Deer Hunt

We had a great time. That’s my son Boone and my Marine Corps buddy, Dennis Schnell. Denny got a real nice 8 point; we got the two deer for the three tags. My son got his bear up here in August. No deer for this trip for him though. He got a nice 10 pointer last fall, he’s doing good.

Equity

Be the first to comment on this post

Defined as: “a value of a property or of an interest in it in excess of claims against it.” There are a lot of folks who preserved their equity and in recessionary times like these, have much more confidence in their future…and maybe a roof over their head, than the folks that were too highly levered. Many folks have found out that a 50% leverage ratio goes quickly to 100% when the market turns down. When the market goes up, you make money though on Other Peoples Money…that’s what drives the risk. I might add that risk is fine…so long as you are very careful with the equity in your home. Don’t buy more home than you can afford and remember…”The best home that I have seen is the one that is paid for.”
