    Home prices shot up a lot in the past year. Time to consolidate the gains.

    Yes, the weakening housing market started back further and is apparent to all, yet no one wants to acknowledge it. It is funny to see realtors snow over buyers into paying higher prices along with the banks that manipulate prices higher by holding on to their inventory so they don't have to book losses. They certainly have a conflict of interest, especially those that butter their bread on both sides by representing the buyer and seller. This industry needs changing badly.
