More info on the housing market (click HERE for the article).
While I understand the comment from an economics standpoint I totally disagree with the 'concept' that existing-home sales don't contribute to the GDP. There is a HUGE ripple effect from the purchase/sale of a home--Sellers (hopefully) got paid and now can purchase another home or more 'stuff' (or pay down debt so they can get more 'stuff') and Buyers need to make that home 'theirs' (Home Depot/Lowes, here they come! Ditto for furniture, electronics, etc.). Regardless, good info!
