`Fiscal Cliff` Deal Favors Housing Recovery

We.are.being.played | Jan 2, 2013 11:45 AM ET Yup short term positive. So if you`re going to buy and roll it in the next 6 months - go for it. On the other, if you think beyond your nose ..... When cuts come in (and they will) .... the Economy (including housing) will tank. Short sided - a trade at best. But, remember don`t buy what you can`t dump quickly and hopefully for a profit - assuming that any capital gains don`t come into play.

LoganMohtashami | Jan 2, 2013 11:49 AM ET Did anyone, I mean anyone think they weren`t going to extend the debt relief act. After what Freddie, Fannie and the Banks did last year to set things up this year for short sales. MID reform might come later but even capping it out at $500,000 would mean majority of Americans won`t get touched. loganmohtashami/2012/12/31/2013-housing-prediction/ Logan Mohtashami

FactCheck | Jan 2, 2013 11:50 AM ET We should really switch to a flat tax with limited deductions. The home mortgage deduction is bull. Only 26% of filers even are able to claim it because their tax burden does not exceed their standard deduction. youargue/index.php/discussions/browse/24-a-fair-tax-is-a-flat-tax.html

bosco | Jan 2, 2013 11:52 AM ET Housing is better off and so are big mortgage financials as a result. I am investing big on banks that are mortgage heavy like B of A and JP Morgan.

beachguy2424 | Jan 2, 2013 12:09 PM ET You`re right, taking more money out of the pockets of average Americans is really going to help them pay their mortgage or obtain new ones....sigh....

lrymcd | Jan 2, 2013 12:18 PM ET THE NEXT TEST - Will the Republicans continue their campaign to throw the poor and middle class under the bus. Define entitlement programs - Something that Republicans claim to hate but love to have. Because currently our military industrial complex is an entitlement program. Because Billion dollar a year subsidies to big oil is an entitlement program. Because Corporate welfare is an entitlement program. Because tax cuts is an entitlement program. Because the NRA is an entitlement program. You know, it’s that 2nd amendment thing. But, according to Republicans, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security?....Well those are entitlement programs that we can do without.
