I'm still waiting for you to explain to us how the entire country is currently in a real estate bubble Mr. "Expert."

Trump is having a great week. This shit will tighten up. I don't care about the polls right now. Come October we will know. But he is bouncing back. I like his female campaign manager and left alone with her I would make love to her.

What evidence do you have that he's bouncing back? The GOP is in full freak out mode right now. Nobody with numbers like this has ever turned it around so late in the game. Just sayin'...

Insider accounts are floating around that Trump is going to announce his new plan to allow illegal immigrants to obtain citizenship. Surely he isn't going to back off one of his main points: Building a wall and purging America of illegals. Is he?

Any attempt to appear more humane and appeal to a broader voter demographic (too late anyway) would surely implode his base.

I suspect those insider accounts are as accurate as those claiming he's about to drop out.

Holy shit. Get out of the house every once in a while. Or go to realtor.com and look at list prices vs what they sold for in the past. Do something for yourself for a change instead of being lazy.

There's a couple for you.  One opinion, one apparently fact, one more specific about certain markets.  Doesn't even scrape the surface of how some markets are doing, but certainly paints the recovery in simple terms anyone can understand.  Is it as ridiculous as it was in the housing bubble?  No, but I never said it was.  This is what I said:

Housing prices are inflated. It's a mirage. Same as it was before. Eventually the bubble bursts.

and

Housing prices overall are back to increasing at crazy levels as they did before the bubble burst.

I never said every single market was inflated.  Every market is unique.  I then gave 2 examples of my experiences in different markets.  Housing prices are rising sharply again as they did before the bubble.  Eventually I will find the chart I was looking at so you can see that too since that seems to be the only way you'll believe anything.   

Here's the good news though...housing price increases are more in line with inflation than they were when the bubble really hit.  Doesn't mean it will stay that way, but for now at least that part of the increase is inline.  Gives some hope the bursting won't be as bad (or at least isn't going to happen soon).

Houses in nice shape are literally lasting days on the market here getting multiple offers and driving the prices up.  The only houses lasting are in bad shape.  Granted that's one market that is growing like mad, but that is why the inventory is so low...it's not that there aren't homes for sale, but they are getting snatched up right away.  Great if you're selling a house; not so good if you're buying.

The chart shows a sharp increase in housing prices.  I'll post it if/when I find it.  It's very similar to the time when the housing bubble happened, then burst.  Maybe prices went down too far and they are just recovering...hard to say, but the prices are increasing at a very fast pace right now.

I will admit. It is still shaky. Makes me nervous because I build houses.
