Commie twinks. There is no reason you can't double housing prices every year forever, unless you hate Success and want to destroy the economy. Get with the Program! Get with Success!

Well nothing can sustainably rise to infinity. It just has to match the income of the neighborhood to be reasonable.

I just find it interesting in this article, that the NAR is being the 'bear' and they are usually the we better duck. ;)...

The Realtwhores need inventory to sell. The homeowners holding out for higher prices are cramping monthly commission revenue.

Good interpretation. They are trying to bring the sellers out.

Problem is, the potential sellers are probably either happy where they are, or they're underwater and can't sell..

I agree that the future rise in house price is going to be muted for the following reasons. Infact we may see apullback of a few percentage points.

1. Higher interest rates will curb the price
2. Income increase per household is only increasing at 1-2%
3. Construction cost which rose dramitically earlier are now back to normal. Hence the builders are competetive again.

Just increase the minimum wage to $28.00 an hour.

I agree. Do it like the Germans.

Germans probably don't have 11 million mexicans willing to work for cash below minimum wage. Nor do they send millions of jobs to China to work for pennies.

I could be wrong though.

If you have not already taken out multiple HELOCs, you are just behind the curve and deserve to lose.

You have argued with success and lost.

Germany doesn't have federally (or state) mandated minimum wage, certain fields of work do through the unions (which then is enforcable by law).
