As far as reports from Wall Street are concerned, the Housing Market is revived a bit, but the sources say that the recession is not yet over for the Housing Market. Some of the home builders registered some profits in the third quarter this year and the sales increased, but they remained low when compared to results from same quarter last year. Irrespective of this slight growth in the demand, the future isn't that promising as it should have been.

The reasons are simple. Acute unemployment and the increase in number of foreclosures are the basic reasons for the sluggish upward trend of the Housing Market. The particular problem which is causing more harm is foreclosure, which is continuously adding up to the inventory of preoccupied properties. The reason why the Housing Market showed an upward trend can be attributed to the factor that some of the major banks have halted their foreclosure proceedings to ensure that the process complies with the state laws.

The problem for Housing Market will continue, because of dramatic increase in the discounts given by the banks on the foreclosed properties. With underwater mortgages and foreclosures still existing round the corner, the Housing market still possesses a big threat. Even though the mortgage rates are down, the sales for Housing market did not pick up considerably and those who were willing to invest in new built houses already did so when the government announced home buyers tax credit. Since the tax credits ended in April, chances of investment in new properties don't look very promising.

Nonetheless, the prospective homebuyers who are eying on the preoccupied properties will be the gainers because of the massive discounts, which are at 26% on an average.
