Buffett's been betting big on housing, and not just in ResCap loans. A few reasons to play along, according to Joe Light: 1) New-home inventory is at a five-decade low (heading to less than six months' supply); 2) Prices are making their move up, and may have momentum; 3) price-to-rent ratios are back to levels from a decade ago.
