12 Signs That Things Are Getting Worse

Inquiring minds are reading this morning Michael Snyder of BusinessInsider.com where he enumerates the economic troubles facing this country:

1) U.S. housing prices down 26 percent.
2) 11 percent of all homes in the United States are currently standing empty.
3) Mortgage delinquencies and foreclosures reached new highs in 2010.
4) Unemployment is at very high levels.
5) Wage levels are going down.
6) mortgage lending standards have been tightened significantly.

That means that there are very few qualified buyers running around out there and that is going to continue to be the case for quite some time to come. When you add all of those factors up, it leads to one inescapable conclusion. The “housing Armageddon” that we have been experiencing since 2007 is going to get even worse in 2011.

Right now there is a gigantic mountain of unsold homes in the United States. It is estimated that banks and financial institutions will repossess at least a million more homes this year and this will make the supply of unsold properties even worse. At the same time, millions of American families have been scared out of the market by this recent crisis and millions of others cannot qualify for a home loan any longer. That means that the demand for unsold homes is at extremely low levels.

So what happens when supply is really high and demand is really low?
