Makes no sense. New home sales up even though raw materials costs remain high yet existing home sales are down even though prices are at historic lows. Does not compute.

Here in the Dominion of Northern California, I see little evidence of home construction for the hoi poloi. I do see the occasional McMansion still being erected. Why should a young couple seek out a new tract home for $200K, when I see them buying foreclosures for $160K (6 acres, 1600sq.ft. home, barn and out buildings?)

Something smells ripe about this article.
