Lennar (LEN) CEO Stuart Miller is bullish on the housing market. "We are clearly in the midst of a recovery," he says. "Prices are moving up not because costs are moving up so much, but because demand is getting so strong." Just look at Nevada, one of the nation's hardest hit by the housing collapse. Despite a 334% surge in new foreclosures, builders are ramping up production. Housing starts in Las Vegas are up nearly 100% from a year ago. Miller says he wouldn't be surprised to housing starts get to 1.7M, even 2M nationwide at some point when the recovery really kicks in.
