Housing Market on the Rebound?

We’re all tired of the doom and gloom news about the decline in the housing market. But Goldman Sachs Group, the New York-based banking giant that survived the subprime mortgage crisis, is not only predicting an imminent rebound, they’re investing in one.

Goldman Sachs is starting a new fund called the U.S. Housing Recovery Fund and just completed its first round of capital fundraising last week.

This fund will focus on mortgage securities that are backed by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, and is aimed at stabilizing the housing market.   Indications that timing was ideal for the formation of the fund were the affordability of housing and the supply-and-demand balance in the market.

Other signs of a turnaround in the real estate market include hedge fund managers Caxton Associates, SAC Capital Advisors, Avenue Capital and Blackstone Group who have all been purchasing housing related investments. In addition, homebuilder shares were up 30% in the 4th quarter of 2011 as indicated by the Dow Jones Industrial Average.We’re all tired of the doom and gloom news about the decline in the housing market.
