housing recovery cheerleaders are being overly optimistic

StormT | Dec 19, 2012 10:31 AM ET It`s true in Tampa..........they are building like crazy.........APARTMENTS!

mtnr | Dec 19, 2012 10:47 AM ET Sandy again .Mortgage apps were down 13% from previous week. Fed Ex blamed her for a 12% drop in net despite Fed Ex`s revenues being up 3%. Expect any co that misses Q4 earnings to balm it on Sandy. Don`t recall one storm being blamed fro so much havoc from Florida to Alaska. There are 2.5 million properties in the foreclosure pipeline NOT including the shadow inventory. I think the housing recovery cheerleaders are being overly optimistic

Malady | Dec 19, 2012 11:15 AM ET duck33-agree with you, especially the tax part, but what is better alternative to home ownership?

MrSquiggles | Dec 19, 2012 12:02 PM ET The percentage change can be very deceptive because it is calculated on the base amount, so the percentage change is larger going up for the same amount of houses. LOL For example, if housing starts are at 1,000,000 then a drop of 100,000 is a ten percent drop. If housing starts are at 500,000 then an increase of 100,000 is a twenty percent rise. The Obama worshippers are probably trying to deceive you into thinking things are better than they actually are. LOL
