Yet Another Housing Bear Turns Bull

Agents, did you know you can share a personalized version of this post? Learn more!

Every day there seems to be more positive news about the real estate recovery. We attempt to give you two things in this blog:

  1. The actual data that indicates where the housing market is headed
  2. Quotes from analysts who have scrutinized this data

Today, we want to give you a quote by Ivy Zelman which appeared last week in a Wall Street Journal article Stunned Home Buyers Find the Bidding Wars Are Back.

"We very much believe we've hit bottom."

Why is the quote from Zelman important? She is an industry expert consistently recognized by Institutional Investor, Greenwich Associates, StarMine and The Wall Street Journal as an industry-leading analyst. She has been nicknamed ‘Poison Ivy’ for her harsh positions on housing over the last several years. Now, Zelman is calling a bottom and projecting prices to moderately increase in the next twelve months.

Again, another expert on housing is calling a bottom; another bear turns bull.

    Keep posting propaganda. You only lose credibility.

      If we post something positive, some of our readers object. If we post something negative, another group of our readers objects. We guess just like an umpire, if both teams don’t like what we’re saying, we must be fair.

    the market is South Africa seems to be be improving as well. Whilst asking prices are often not what is being achieved, the number of sales have certainly increased. Banks seem to be providing more credit as well however in a more disciplined fashion. Lets hope we continue to see recovery
