Calculated Risk quotes LPS as if it were the Bible but never acknowledges that LPS is a convicted felon forger and perjurer.
While many people like Calculated Risk, it is a very subtle industry pumper blog, and has little credibility.

Actually, of all the "gurus" out there, I would say CR has the highest credibility. Who else, has a trackrecord, of being optimistic at times, and resoundingly bearish at others?
Headlines like "Epic Crash" and "Global Meltdown" are not the kind of thing you would expect from a "industry pumper".
I think the bears forget how doomish CR was back a few years ago. Back in 08, CR was the bears darling. It is only in early 09 that CR started going bullish, angering its (largely) bearish audience, and the rest is history...

I don't see how you can ever get an accurate picture of rental vacancies other than declining or rising rents in a micro market.
Landlords are some of the most unscrupulous individuals I've ever met, and to say untruthfulness is a trait most landlords posses would not be an exaggeration.
