    NEW YORK (Cinnamon) -- Existing home sales climbed for the second month in a row in September, fueling some hope that a housing recovery is underway.

    Sales of previously owned homes rose 10% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.53 million units last month, the National Association of Realtors reported Monday. That was up from a 4.12 million rate in August.

    Not exactly a sign of recovery if we are in an inflationary period.

    We need to be in an inflationary period.

    The problem is, we aren't.

    Just as I thought...A significant portion of that "increase" was via bargain hunters, scooping up some quick cash deals.

    All is quiet...All is well. :rolleyes:

    Yeah, that's not a recovery, that's banks turning inventory on and off like a garden hose.
