Housing prices on a YoY basis showed improvement. That is a good sign. Of course if we look at a year ago and realize that home prices are still falling may make some stop and wonder how this is anything more of a statistical recovery.
Look at the chart and you can quickly discern that losing 3% on a YoY basis is not as exciting as would be reported by most in the main stream media. They think it is a good thing….
By all accounts, housing prices have benefited by synthetic demand that is going to run its course.
