Ask an expert: Housing hitting bottom?

MSN Money's Charley Blaine answers Facebook questions about the real-estate market in 2012.

With about a third of homeowners owing more on their mortgages than their houses are worth, Americans would like to know where the housing market is headed in 2012. MSN Money columnist Charley Blaine thinks the worst is over but cautions not to expect big price increases for some time.

 

He fielded questions from our Facebook community, including one on housing stocks.

He can think what he wants BUT, is he out here in the trenches or is he in a large urban area and seldom leaves his comfort zone?

These so called "experts" don't know much more than the rest of us.  They just watch a bunch of figures and not all things are reported in those figures!
