Buying Cheaper Than Renting, But Some Mortgages Make It a Closer Call

What the ECRI of housing fails to calculate is when you decide to move....which you will....all of your gains are lost immediately.

Also, let's calculate a more nebulous cost, being that the average person doesn't know how to use a hammer.

Frankly, all I see are normal lending standards.

The only movement in mortgage origination will be at regional banks who understand local markets and they are going to be selective.

The end.

Gosh...what will EnergyCon neurosis about next?

"The lack of growth in miles driven over the last 7 years is probably also due to the lingering effects of the great recession (high unemployment rate and lack of wage growth), the aging of the overall population (over 55 drivers drive fewer miles) and changing driving habits of young drivers.

With all these factors, it might take a few more years before we see a new peak in miles driven - but it does seem like miles driven is now increasing."

I wouldn't bet on it.

"here’s little incentive for U.S. producers to slow down anytime soon. Even the drillers who do get squeezed will be loath to cut production. Investors tend to punish exploration and production companies that slow their pace.

Not flat.

US population in 1980 = 226,545,805

US population in 2014 = 322,583,006

Oil consumption is basically flat....sorry.

Try again.
