The Nasdaq hit a 12 year high last month.

There seems to be movement going on.


I just bought a house last month and I can tell you that the market in Houston is very hot. prices have jumped substantially from only a year ago, and homes are getting snapped up quick. I lost out on several properties because they were snapped up before I could place a bid.

also, properties that have had constructions signs for years but sat undisturbed have finally started breaking ground and building all over town.
