The Double Dip Arrives For Housing--Clear Capital

An interesting piece from Clear Capital about the sudden fall in home prices. The double dip is on big time for the residential housing market. Get ready for another homebuyer tax credit by the increasingly desperate keynesians. From Clear Capital:
Most recent data shows a two-month 5.9% price decline representing a magnitude and speed of decline not seen since March 2009; similar declines for September and October expected to appear in other industry indices in coming months.

“Clear Capital’s latest data shows even more pronounced price declines than our most recent HDI market report released two weeks ago,” said Dr. Alex Villacorta, senior statistician, Clear Capital. “At the national level, home prices are clearly experiencing a dramatic drop from the tax credit-induced highs, effectively wiping out all of the gains obtained during the flurry of activity just preceding the tax credit expiration.”
