Inventory is increasing, albeit more slowly than in recent months. More striking is that the Altos 10-City Composite showed price decreases in each of the 26 markets it tracks. This month, the Altos 10-City Composite price decreased 1.06%.

Obama endorsements sunk two more Democratic candidates this month as his political capital is waning – as is his popularity – in the face of widespread voter rebellion.
Senator Benedict Arlen Specter became the fourth Democrat in seven months to lose a high-profile election despite active involvement in the campaign by Obama. The Associated Press, in their infinite wisdom, said that this is "raising doubts about Obama’s ability to help fellow Democrats in this November’s elections." You think?

While the nationwide housing market
is certainly important, especially as it significantly effects the overall economy
, of substantially greater importance are the conditions of the local housing market. It has been said – and rightly so – that all real estate is local. Thus, we track local real estate markets very closely.
Reports, in increasing numbers, from around the country and Western Europe, are beginning to filter in which suggest that the worst of the housing market – as is the case with the overall economy – is not yet behind us, despite the beginning of an anemic recovery.

Barrack Obama continues buying votes in his effort to seize control of the US health care industry. The latest effort of this profoundly dishonest President buys votes from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, promising amnesty for illegal aliens.
In his latest example of corruption – and his perversion of the American political system – Barrack Obama succeeded in securing the Congressional Hispanic Caucus’s endorsement of ObamaCare legislation by pledging to push an amnesty plan for millions of illegal aliens.
In this apparent quid pro quo, the president’s promise to push amnesty in 2010 coincidentally came just hours after members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus promised their support for the health care reform bill. The announcement further coincided with the release of an outline for amnesty legislation authored by Senators Chuck Schumer and Lindsey Graham.
