Not good, Maverick...
"Sales of previously owned U.S. homes dropped more steeply than expected in July to their lowest pace in 15 years, an industry group said Tuesday, implying further loss of momentum in the economic recovery.
The National Association of Realtors said sales dropped a record 27.2 percent from June to an annual rate of 3.83 million units, the lowest level since May 1995. June's sales pace was revised down to a 5.26 million-unit pace.
The record drop in existing U.S. home sales in July showed that the country must still do more to improve the economy, White House spokesman Bill Burton said Tuesday."
The housing market WILL NOT CHANGE unless it is allowed to correct itslef...unless the bottom literally is allowed to fall out on housing prices.
