Robert Shiller: Housing Is Still Not out of the Woods

August 06, 2012 | About:

Robert Shiller, co-founder of Case-Shiller U.S. Home Price Index discusses the U.S. housing market and his outlook for the market. He still thinks that prices have more room to go down; U.S. housing is still not out of woods yet.

Here is a summary of what he said:

-- We have still not hit the bottom on U.S. house prices. Things have gotten better but there is not a U-shape recovery.

-- Recent uptick in home prices can be seasonal.

-- People moving towards renting and that does not speak good for the home values, specifically for the suburbs.

-- Rates are at record lows but there are still not many people refinancing. Why? Banks fueled the prices and subsequent crisis but same banks have a different mindset now and that is making it difficult to find loans.
