Improving data (I, II, III) pushes Deutsche Bank analysts to believe housing has entered a real recovery: "We wonder if forecasters have counted this sector out for so long that they are overlooking the possibility that it could pose an unexpected mild boost to the [economy] in the year ahead." But it's too soon to declare victory, as millions of homes still wait to be put on sale by distressed owners and banks.

    I don't know if I call it a recovery more like a return to reasonability for most markets sans Detroit, Vegas, Florida and few other troubled areas. In my neighborhood we have 3 homes under construction in the past 4 months and a multi-family unit about a mile away.

     

    My take is that it will move sideways for a few years but buyers on the sideline should probably start to place their bets as rates are unbelievably low.

    And millions more by sellers who in a normal market would be able to trade-up, downsize or relocate.
