The United States has a complex housing finance system with numerous measures that explicitly target home ownership. Most of...

The real estate market continues to show little signs of life. Despite record low mortgage rates and a collapse in home prices, builders see little demand for new homes due to the record high overhang of existing homes on the market, including the record high level of foreclosed properties (4.29% of all active loans) which have continued to gain most attention from buyers due to much lower prices.
