Observation

no surprise, the folk still out looking/buying have no idea – they get their market intel from their real estate expert (who has a lot at stake in the txn).

larry, this is not pointed at you.

that said, the masses will awake to a new reality in the weeks/months ahead – its there, but it will take time for their vision to focus, they won’t believe their eyes -they’ve been trained by a mantra that does not incorporate valuation and crashes – but this will come in time.
