INFO THAT HITS US WHERE WE LIVE...We should be especially careful to not erect barriers to our progress just because of a minor setback, like the one we had with last week's Pending Home Sales. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) index of signed contracts on existing homes slipped in January for the second month in a row. But the drop wasn't as bad as expected and, as the NAR's chief economist said: "We should not expect the recovery to be in a straight upward path--it will zig-zag at times."

The latest NAR overall forecast gave an interesting picture of that recovery. Existing home sales should grow 8.1% this year and another 5.2% in 2012, with the median price essentially flat in 2011 before gaining over 3% next year. New home sales are forecast up about 5% this year, then up over 55% for 2012, with the median price up a bit in 2011, then up 3.5% next year. Fannie Mae's latest National Housing Survey reported that the vast majority of people believe housing prices will hold firm in 2011 and that Hispanics, African-Americans and Generation Y (18-34 years old) are more positive than other Americans about homeownership.
