Home Prices Post Gains as Recovery Keeps Pace

We.are.being.played | Dec 26, 2012 09:05 AM ET I feel so good about the state of this mess - I\`m going to go out and buy, buy, buy! NOT!

TheCSW | Dec 26, 2012 09:10 AM ET I\`m going all in on Pultte this morning. They\`re up 130% this year but everyone keeps saying don\`t miss the rally, don\`t fight the fed, and fiscal cliff will be solved by Obama. Time to get the 2013 Santa rally started today!! Rally On! The Fed is loading it\`s balance sheet with all of the bad MBS from the GSE\`s with the government buying everyones mortgage there will be no forclosures and everyone will still need a house. what could possibly go wrong?!

BrianBallsOfSteel | Dec 26, 2012 09:16 AM ET Csw The fed is buying newly issued mbs which are safe... Where do you get the idea they are buying \"bad mbs\"?

sidfeinberg | Dec 26, 2012 09:19 AM ET Real Estate keeps going up and up and up and up. I also keep telling you to buy now or get priced out. My Realtor, Tom Adkins, is top notch. He says he expects 10% appreciation per year and I\`d think more. Stocks are up, Real Estate is up, unemployment is down, 10\`s of thousands of high income / high skilled jobs being created everywhere. There is one common denominator, OBAMA. With 8 more years, Obama will be able to clean up the Regan and Bush mess

JohnnyOxygen | Dec 26, 2012 09:26 AM ET Yeah! Now if I, or anyone in my family, could find a job we could buy a house we couldn\`t afford.

TheCSW | Dec 26, 2012 09:28 AM ET BBOS...where do you get the idea they are completely safe? are they purchasing only MBS for homes with an LTV of 50% or less, 800 FICOs, in stable markets. If so they are only buying the cream of the crop which doesn\`t help the damaged part of the housing sector. If they are buying the damaged part to help the economy they are at risk of taking a haircut. ineffective or unsustainable would you call this good? if so, I have some derivatives to sell to you.

Gigel_M | Dec 26, 2012 09:35 AM ET A factor believed to contribute to financial crisis is the role of investment mistakes caused by imperfection in reasoning and human behaviour. False home prices index can set false expectations that appear real and can misdirect consumer mood and behaviour. The Wall Street Challenger questions the accuracy of the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices pointing out that the indices weights down or eliminates data points that are market driven.

We.are.being.played | Dec 26, 2012 09:40 AM ET I had a great Christmas. I asked God for a Ferrari - but, I know it doesn\`t work that way. So I stole one and asked for forgiveness.
