This is common sense...of course home sales will begin to climb...when you are at the bottom of the cliff (2008), there is not place to go but up. Please keep in mind that there are a lot of foreign investors purchasing these homes also. And if the new buyers of these homes are like the ones that got foreclosed, then you can expect more of the same in a few years that we had four years ago. Just like the sequester...these guys are willing to cut $84 for every $16,000 they spend...that is what you have when you cipher out all of those zeros....wow,. They will cut 1.2 trillion in ten years, but they are adding one trillion to the debt each year. But, not to worry, we will only add 7.8 trillion instead of 10.
