I wish all those speculating about the housing market down turn would stop speculating, get some lead in their clip aka testicular verility aka backbone aka cajones and stop worrying about it and the impacts on the economy. "Stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood..." as the John Prine song goes. I work in the development sector. Here is what is happening. First of all, most developers, builders, public works folk are happy for the slow down because it gives the public works folks time to catch up on all the needed infrastructure that couldn't keep up with the overwhelming pace of development. Second, houses were overpriced the bubble is deflating enough to make homes affordable to the average working stiff again. Third, I guarantee that it will level out. The demand is still there probably more than ever given the projected population growth. Unless someone closes the door on immigration and clamps down on birth control which are on the TOP Ten TO-Do List for the Government, just under putting a biosphere dome on the sun, we will not see a housing collapse.

For the sake of the sweet feathery one waddled in downy feathers, stop worrying about it, pick some good investments and move on.
