InvestmentU.com: The Housing Chill Is a Bear, Not a Bubble

NEW YORK, March 14 /PRNewswire/ --
There's no question about it: the U.S. housing bull market has turned into a bear. New home sales have dropped to 2004 levels and are continuing to decline. Price hikes have slowed. Buyer cancellation rates are up 30% in some areas
What's more, many potential homebuyers can't afford the price of a new home; they're opting to rent until the market bottoms out.

"The housing market has slowed for one simple reason: Prices are simply too high for most investors to find any value in the housing market," Skousen says.
