NewDay12 | Feb 27, 2013 10:03 AM ET Dana.....will you quit and get another job....sick of your propaganda.......write a real story like a real journalist and maybe we wouldn`t laugh at you. It is so aparent you are just a drone for your masters........people like you can be bought and sold by management so fast you won`t even know what happened...your a dime a dozen and your getting up there.

Mr.Clumpus | Feb 27, 2013 10:07 AM ET antisocial | Feb 27, 2013 10:05 AM ET investors buying homes by the truck loads off the banks sheets, thats what this is nothing else... Rental market is surging, someone has to buy the places, fix them up, go to Lowes/HomeDepot. I don`t understand how you can diminish the news as "nothing else." Doesn`t really matter who is buying the property, property is being purchased and the trend seems to be upward and onward.

antisocial | Feb 27, 2013 10:12 AM ET DOES THI MEANS FED BEN HAS TO PULL THE PLUG???

Mr.Clumpus | Feb 27, 2013 10:14 AM ET ok that `s a good idea, but your comment seemed to diminish the import of the news, which I take to be that the housing market is recovering. Is your thinking that but it`s not a consumer led housing market recovery? If so, my counter would be: but the important thing is household formation. House renters will need to go to buy applicances, garden stuff, etc even if they don`t own. So economic impact would be about the same (since the buyers are doing the remodding stuff).

JohnnyOxygen | Feb 27, 2013 10:16 AM ET Weeeeeeeeee>>>>It just keeps getting better and better. I should buy 3 homes! Now all I need is one of those $100,000 jobs.

LoganMohtashami | Feb 27, 2013 10:20 AM ET DTI and Inventory hangover will hold existing sales at bay People wonder why MBS purchase applications haven`t gone anywhere since Mid 2010... We don`t have great job growth, income growth or liquid asset growth for first time buyers who are lacking. So, no wonder Cash buyers are 30% plus of the market and first time home buyers are historically low... Laws of economics can`t be changed you either get income and job growth or there is a limit. This is why Non cash buyers have been soft in relationship to home affordability 2013 Inventory Hangover will continue loganmohtashami/2013/02/27/housing-inventory-hangover-will-continue-in-2013/ Logan Mohtashami

We.are.being.played | Feb 27, 2013 10:31 AM ET It`s funny how everybody takes this data so, so seriously. It means squat. If the US doesn`t clean up it`s act, the only thing that Houses will be good for is for kindling. You know - what they use them for in Detroit and Camden. Let`s see how things work out in a few months. Feel free to throw/give your money away.
