LoganMohtashami | Dec 18, 2012 10:42 AM ET As long as housing inventory stays low the trend for the home builders will be favorable. Now, keep in mind this is 1/12th of the entire housing market so the home builders are smaller than a purse puppy. Look at the latest numbers for Mid December and total housing Inventory is down 23.9% year over year. So, the competition for the home builders is very light and look for this trend to continue in 2013 to a degree because I don`t see a mass amount of inventory coming to play in 2013 Shows how clumsy the housing market is. In the year of the best affordability that we might see this century because of interest rates being so low there was no product on the market Too many homes underwater Not enough homes built in the last 3 years People can`t sell because they can`t

KangarooParmigiana | Dec 18, 2012 10:44 AM ET Thank you CNBC and thank you home builders. I just went out and bought 3 new houses. I also bought millions worth of homebuilder stock. Your sensationalism and cheerleading has made a huge impact on me. I`m all in.

masongoetz | Dec 19, 2012 02:12 PM ET From what I have been seeing (residential broker in Denver) the last year, builders are not over-building at all. In my market, there is almost no spec building any more. Denver learned the hard way already with our massive urban sprawl. And at this point in time, there are so many people trying to buy and so few listings that most properties that are still being constructed are sold well before completion. It also is not the case at all that the new lending guidelines are overly stringent. Do buyers have to go through more verification and provide more info to lenders? Absolutely. Most people qualify for mortgages though, they`re just now being asked to prove it. A decade ago you were given a loan based on what number you pulled out of the air to tell the lender, and look where that g
