The Press calls this a "bail-out" but AIG isn't getting a free ride from the Fed. The situation sucks and it boggles the mind how it ever came to this, but it had to be done.


Only an idiot wouldn't call nationalizing AIG a "bail-out" - Yes AIG is now the property of the US Taxpayers, but the pigmen and pension funds that supported their gross negligence will be spared the pain of their greedy actions.

The average 'MerKan sheeple won't though...

I hope you are being sarcastic. Last time I checked its not a typical american home to have empty missle launcher on your front lawn. I am glad they are looking into this. This doesn''t sound normal to me.


I know it's a stretch for someone to have a deductive thought for themselves in the NYC tri-state area, but you'd think that looking into the tube and seeing it's empty might have been a normal response for a non-idiot

Then again, this has-been harpy wouldn't get her yapping mug on the boob-tube or the local yellow-tabloids by calling the local authorities about empty ordinance being littered on her property, would she

This one's for all you over-leveraged, over-speculated, overly smug imbeciles - It's a blood bath

Quote:
The worst is yet to come for the U.S. housing market.

The jump in 30-year mortgage rates by more than a half a percentage point to 6.74 percent in the past five weeks is putting a crimp on borrowers with the best credit just as a crackdown in subprime lending standards limits the pool of qualified buyers. The national median home price is poised for its first annual decline since the Great Depression, and the supply of unsold homes is at a record 4.2 million, according to the National Association of Realtors.

?It?s a blood bath,? said Mark Kiesel, executive vice president of Newport Beach, California-based Pacific Investment Management Co., the manager of $668 billion in bond funds. ?We?re talking about a two- to three-year downturn that will take a whole host of characters with it, from job creation to consumer confidence. Eventually it will take the stock market and corporate profit.?


It?s Official: The Crash of the U.S. Economy has begun

Quote:
It?s official. Mark your calendars. The crash of the U.S. economy has begun. It was announced the morning of Wednesday, June 13, 2007, by economic writers Steven Pearlstein and Robert Samuelson in the pages of the Washington Post, one of the foremost house organs of the U.S. monetary elite.

Pearlstein?s column was titled, ?The Takeover Boom, About to Go Bust? and concerned the extraordinary amount of debt vs. operating profits of companies currently subject to leveraged buyouts.

In language remarkably alarmist for the usually ultra-bland pages of the Post, Pearlstein wrote, ?It is impossible to predict when the magic moment will be reached and everyone finally realizes that the prices being paid for these companies, and the debt taken on to support the acquisitions, are unsustainable. When that happens, it won't be pretty. Across the board, stock prices and company valuations will fall. Banks will announce painful write-offs, some hedge funds will close their doors, and private-equity funds will report disappointing returns. Some companies will be forced into bankruptcy or restructuring.?

Further, ?Falling stock prices will cause companies to reduce their hiring and capital spending while governments will be forced to raise taxes or reduce services, as revenue from capital gains taxes declines. And the combination of reduced wealth and higher interest rates will finally cause consumers to pull back on their debt-financed consumption.

You could always contact the Shore Club sales office

I'm sure they'd only want to make another 50% profit on the flip!

Here's an interesting trend in property taxes for NJ - Haddon Heights tax hikes spark ire

Quote:
Hundreds of angry residents on Tuesday night protested sharp increases in property taxes here after a revaluation.

?It?s absolutely absurd,? shouted Ron DiMedio, who said the annual property taxes for his Kings Highway home had jumped from $16,500 to about $24,000.

?You?re telling me to get out of town,? DiMedio said.

His heated comments drew loud applause from an audience of about 600 people in St. Rose of Lima Church.
?
Mayor Beth Ann Haven said the borough government would contact Camden County and state tax officials in an effort to undo the tax change.

?This is a county-ordered reval and it?s approved by the state,? she said.

?Ultimately, we want to find out if we can void this reassessment and have another,? she said after listening to residents? complaints after about three hours.

?There?s a lot of confusion,? said the mayor, who suggested homeowners may have calculated their taxes incorrectly.

?We did not,? several audience members shouted back.

Several speakers questioned the accuracy of the revaluation, contending properties were assessed at too high a level in a real estate market that his since weakened. ?The estimates on these homes are wrong,? said Glenn Davis, a Lake Street resident.


Wonder when Hudson County is gonna get around to a reval?

I found this on Kennekt, thought I'd post it before it gets deleted...

Quote:
I spoke with a buddy of mine at a major bank who has underwritten lots of mortgages at Shore. He says there are dozens of buyers already behind on their payments and that they never would have been given a koan in today's environment. He says to expect lots of foreclosure sales in the coming months and that banks might be the sellers because LTV is over 100 percent because of equity losses in the property due to Aqua/Ellipse.


Failed flippers?

Quote:
where are people getting their information?? I personally do not believe that a unit would sell for over 100,000 at the Shore since Aqua/Eclipse are definitely bringing down the value of the Shore and not to mention interest rates are rising - what was the unit's original price and what was it sold for - clearly you must know this information or are you just "speculating"


Quote:
Thanks for the address.
Here is what I was able to find so far (in Hudson County public records).
I could not locate a single resale.
If you are able to find out, please point it out so I can make adjustments.

There are 219 units in SC South. 170 are owned and 49 are still available as of 6/2/07. This info. is 2 weeks lagging.

There are 23 different design. I can only compare the ones where the same lines have been purchased. Ones to consider are floors 9-28 lines 01,02,03,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12. Those lines had approx. 12 out of the 15 floors sold. Others units are one offs and will probably not reflect properly.

I will look at the first few lines and if people want more then I will post more. Once again I have alot of free time.

Line 01- Sold for $555,880 (10th floor) - $660,000(17nd floor). Most recent sale was on 5/23/07 on the 22nd floor for 654K but a 23rd floor was sold a week earlier for $599,799. 104K difference b/w highest and lowest but 23rd floor was sold for 600K on 5/18/07. 45K diff. b/w 10th and 23rd floor doesnt seem like too much of an increase.

Line 02- High 621K low- 540K. 40K difference b/w fist and last sale. 7 floors higher for the last sale though. highest ws on 10th floor and lowest was on 15th floor.

Line 03- High 439K Low- 377K. lowest was on 10th floor and highest was on 23rd. 11th floor sold for 409K a week after 10th floor.

Line 05- High 464K Low- 406K. Lowest floor and first sale of 430K. Highest floor sold as one of the sales sales for that line sold for 441K.

Line 06- High 475 for 12th floor on 4/6 Low 376K on 10th floor on 3/19. 25th floor sold on 5/29th for 422K.

Line 07- High 871K Low 664K. Over 200K difference. 871 sold on 5/1 on the 20th floor. On 5/23 the 23rd floor same design sold for 710K.


Didn't Lefrak say all the South Shoreclub units were sold like last year?

Quote:
Talking about Shore bashers. how come the other buildings, such as Maxwell, even Mandalay, Portofino, etc, don't get such severe bashing. Maybe there is some truths to the concerns about Shore?


Quote:
Unit numbers. I.e. 01 would be contingent on the floor. could be 1001,1101,1201,1501, etc.

Also found this interesting. Not sure if its been said before but if I know Im sure everyone else does too. Shore club was either targeting or assumed many Chinese people would move in. No knock on Chinese people, just stating a fact.

Reason being- notice there are no 4's? There is no 4th floor, no 14th floor, no 24th floor and no 4 lines. All 4's are absent on purpose. 4 is the unlucky number for Chinese much like 13 is for Americans.


Wow, things are coming unglued over there!!!

From American Banker, two days ago ---
Some facts instead of speculation on why some housing markets are strong. Immigrants Seen Fueling Market for Homes ...Demand for housing in the United States will accelerate in the next decade as immigrants, whose status has been hotly debated in presidential campaigns and in the U.S. Congress, look for homes, a Harvard University study said.


More SPIN from the Real Estate/Mortgage cheerleaders

With first-time home buyers priced-out of the market, how can immigrants (most of whom live in corporate housing) jump into this shark-infested market?!?

Home buyers scared straight by rates - 2007-06-14 - The party's been over, but the hangover is just beginning.

Freddie Mac: 30-yr mortgage average up sharply to 6.74%, "...inventories of new homes remain high, putting downward pressure on construction and home prices."

WSJ - High home prices have helped drive many first-time buyers out of the housing market. Now, with prices falling in many areas, there are some signs that buyers are beginning to drift back.

So, what's happening on Wall St. (you know, the people that employ 99% of the immigrants in JC)?

Bear Stearns' 2nd-Quarter Profit Shrinks on Woes in Mortgage Industry

Goldman, Bear 2Q hurt by subprimes

P.S. I'm hearing talk down-low about several big hedge-funds in serious trouble regarding over-leveraged positions in mortage bets...

This thread should be quite funny by Q4
