... Sorry, way off. Realty metrics are soo distorted it means nothing at this point. If you thought the Hindenburg was a mess wait until interest rates start rising. When 75% of the population can't afford bubkis who do you think the extra homes will be sold to?

..this fantasy ride that is called purchasing a home is now only available for a selected few who's impact on the economy is minimal right now. The banks hold all the cards and shopping for the best mortgage is a thing of the past which again is only available for a small group of people. With in the projections of a fixed game the numbers can be moved accordingly. The percentage of people that cannot acquire a mortgage are monumental, why? Why?!!!! I am lucky I own my home and not the bank!

Hate to burst your bubble but "New Home Sales" where down in July to the lowest rate in 9 months. One new home employs hundreds of people. Hopefully the sales numbers are not the sign of worse things to come. :(

I can only go by what I see locally & we do have some new housing going up but not more than usual, I don't think. On the other hand I see more sold signs on houses & property than I ever had for the six years of living in this area. That's a good thing.

Doesn't help those of us who need it the most. The banks can go *censored* themselves.
