These price increases come from Chinese and other money buying up homes in depressed areas – not from an honest increase in sales due to a healthy growing economy. As this speculative money drives home prices up, American’s income has declined over the last four years and foreclosures are increasing again.

Open your eyes people – we are being manipulated for political purposes. The government has learned that by generating chaos and FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) into the economy by not stabilizing itself and letting us know what it is going to do and not do over the next few years, it can keep the economy stagnant with businesses curled in the fetal position waiting for the next government boot to land on their necks…

We are being played.

Banks will resume releasing that massive and growing inventory of foreclosures they have been holding on to and the people who’ve been buying homes over the last yr will join the crowd that took advantage of that home buying tax credit a few years ago now also members of the underwater club. As long as the labor dept continues to report 400,00 new unemployment claims each week nothing much will change, house payment is the last thing to go prime or sub-prime.

This makes absoulutely no sense in the overall picture of the economy. All other indicators show flat-line or slump, yet the market value of homes jumps over 6%? This has to come from isolated markets that aren’t reflecting the national trend because the increase isn’t reflected anywhere else.

wait until some of the loopholes and deductions are decreased and see how well real estate does particularly in the more expensive parts of the country. the weeping and gnashing of teeth will only increase.
