Robert Shiller on the Housing Market

I found three recent videos of Robert Shiller discussing the housing market. He is pretty bearish and thinks the market might remain weak for years to come.

Below are the videos:

Ironic that smart men like Schiller speak cautiously while ppl like Trump sound so sure of themselves.

I have to disagree with Schiller. Places such as LA have seen strong demand for housing. Especially in areas such as Downtown, Mid Wilshire, and Koreatown.

Paulji2001, demand could be strong, but this could be occuring at distressed price levels...

Bill Ackman is forecasting housing prices to double in 5-10 years.

I don't see housing prices going anywhere for atelast 5 years.

And with energy prices going up and the US gov't not doing anything to move to natural gas (like it should be), people in colder cliamtes are going to want smaller homes. I'm personally thinking of downsizing due to heating costs.

So, while a housing recovery will happen, it might be in smaller homes. Even with higher commodity prices, smaller homes would act as a sort of yin-yang style mechnism in terms of pricing.
