How does this square off with the AP release by CHRISTOPHER S. RUGABER - AP
ECONOMICS WRITER that home prices according to the Standard &
Poor's/Case-Shiller home price index rose in most cities. Does it not seem
odd that while most other publications are publishing that piece, the DN is
publishing data the counters that claim?Anyway, just wondering about
the choice here.
A point I should add here..... is I guess it is all about spin, and how you want
to spin the news. Yes, year over year, prices were down through March. The
other side to that is we were down less year over year than we were the previous
quarter. Second piece of significant news is that some of the cities that
rebounded were some of the hardest hit, giving some relief, be it very small.Bottom line on this though is if I didn't have to sell a house now,
I wouldn't. While we may be bouncing along the bottom, we still have not
seen the real up tick in sales needed for sustainable growth. This
summer's selling season will tell much.It still is interesting
to see the spin the DN decided to take in comparison to most publications...
there is absolutely a bent on not publishing promising news.
