housing inflation is over five percent

duck33 | Jan 29, 2013 09:50 AM ET Does that mean the fed can quit devaluing benny bucks housing inflation is over five percent?

FACTcheck | Jan 29, 2013 09:50 AM ET Are they ever going to get that mortgage table correct? You can`t have an APR less than the rate.

tradereye | Jan 29, 2013 09:51 AM ET "Home prices are Up"......depending upon where you are. The recovery is very regional and pocketed. IMO the home prices are up because of the REITS buying into SFR for investments (ie: rentals). The actual buyers are not coming back into the market and won`t for several years because of the short sales/foreclosure/bankruptcy most of them have gone thru. (ie: approx 7 years to recover from). Next on this Bubble Horizon will be the infomercials!! You too, can get rich in real estate now....hahahahahaha

permarenter | Jan 29, 2013 09:52 AM ET *yawn* Only reason prices are up is because rates are low. Sure prices may have finally overshot the bottom and may now be stabilizing, but just wait until rates go up.

Bladeup | Jan 29, 2013 09:56 AM ET Wow! Why can we not be truthful with the people of our nation. We give trillions to the banks and they tell us lies about the strength of the housing market. In a few years this will end quite badly for many buying into this market. The banks will release the foreclosures into the market which they believe will have little impact on prices. But, they will be surprised when a mini-great-recession is ignited. One thing I can offer to the buyers in this market is a program that may help them. If you buy a home now, you should lock-in your real estate commission with a program called Commission Lock (wwwmissionlock) get in now. You`re guaranteed every penny back if feel the program is not for you. The company will even ask your mortgage company to pay the entire cos

pragmatic01 | Jan 29, 2013 10:26 AM ET 1 of 2 All statistics offered by official entities (governmental or not) are rigged, and have little to do with reality. The propaganda operators, CNBC among them, really believe that their audience is made up of total idiots that would swallow whatever propaganda they peddle. The final consequence of this will be the ultimate goal to the Left wing ideologues, and an unintended consequence to the imbeciles that repeat what they‚€™re told (regardless of whether they believe it or not) because they get paid well to do so: A total distrust in the market system and the disruption of capital investment as it has always worked. That way they can justify the government taking over one industry after another until we‚€™re in a total centrally planned economy, like the old Soviet Union was. We

pragmatic01 | Jan 29, 2013 10:27 AM ET 2 0f 2 The biggest lie of our time is the ‚€œForward‚€Ě slogan of the Liberals. We‚€™re actually regressing to an economic system that proved not to work anywhere it was imposed. Socialism was imposed in four continents (Africa, America, Asia, Europe), by force or by votes, on White, Asian, and Black populations, from highly developed economies to Third World ones: It didn‚€™t work in a single instance it was tried. We‚€™re now moving in that direction and these bozos call that ‚€œmoving forward‚€Ě. We‚€™re living in the Bizarro World of the Superman story, where hot is cold, wrong is right, and up is down. If Americans don‚€™t wake up from this hallucination in a hurry, it is going to be too late; the American experience will be o

handballforlife | Jan 29, 2013 10:49 AM ET Wanna really see how much BS this is....call a few of your friends and find out how long they haven`t paid there mortgage.....bet everyone knows somebody that`s not paying for years and still in there homes.....you clowns are believing you own BS

sidfeinberg | Jan 29, 2013 10:51 AM ET You must buy now or you will get priced out !!!! Housing is at an all time low for affordability. Increases of 15% are normal Huge demand as the Obama economy is creating massive wealth This market is different than 2004 as we are in a sustainable economy with high paying jobs, proper financing by banks, low interest rates, and strong demand by buyers. You must buy now or get priced out. Be prepared for bidding wars and paying over list is typical of the market. I just out bid 6 other investors on a house. The list was 67k and I contracted for 115k. I tried for financing but the stupid appraiser obviously doesn`t understand the market and came in at 60k. My Realtor said it was a wise buy, so I paid out in cash. I will sell this place for 200k within 2 years m
