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.
