    Already bought some at bargain basement prices (FRE and FNM).. they are a long term hold, IMHO.. not looking at a huge gain quick

    Cramer's housing bottom countdown is ticking away as we speak, better get in before it's too late! :rolleyes:

    On the real though, I'd buy FRE and FNM for a flip. I wouldn't own them as long term investments, though. Our next boom cycle isn't going to be that fruitful, and I doubt it'll be catalyzed by real estate again.

    I don't buy individual stocks, but I have put a little extra into the Vanguard REIT. Nothing like buying when prices are down 40%. The population of the US is going up to 400 million in the next couple decades, real estate is going to come back.
