A Bottom in Housing? You've Got to Be Kidding!

Wednesday, August 20, 2008 | 11:30 AM

I have an interesting discussion on Housing later this week, but for now, let's look at this Yahoo video n another bottom call in Housing.  (Note that the charts discussed are linked below)


Here are the relevant charts regarding Home Sale and Rental ratios, as well as Median Income and Home prices.

Charts:

Median New Home Prices vs Median Household Disposable Income

Comments

The bottom two charts of the CPI - Rent (312.pdf) shows an interesting (to me) parallel in the top at ’78. From the extreme spike it took 4.5 years to see a bottom. From the extreme spike in ’05 that would equate to a bottom midyear 2009.
