I believe these are all good signs and will be setting a good foundation for an upswing in real estate. Once unemployment starts going down we will be well on out way. The United States economy grew at its fastest pace in years at the end of 2009, even as businesses resisted hiring and continued to do more with less. In addition, the growth rate was the fastest since the third quarter of 2003, when the economy grew at a rate of 6.9 percent. Gross domestic product (G.D.P.) is equal to the market value of goods and services produced by labor and property in the United States, regardless of nationality.

It has to be getting better.  I don't feel like it could be getting any worst!  I do see more people smiling...

George you sound like a smart man. But why should you care if it improves or not.......just climb on your horse and ride away in the sunset. (Not trying to be a SA, but man that is one good looking horse)

George, I think the market is getting better in certain areas.  I also think what is happening is that the prices have fallen across the board and they're finding the point where people will think about buying again.  Not a pretty process but it's one of the last free market systems we have in this country.
