Real Estate Flipper Books
(or, Are we really at a bottom in Real Estate, Part 2?)

Monday, December 04, 2006 | 09:05 AM

Last month, we asked if we were Near a Bottom in Housing?  The question keeps coming up, thanks in part to former Fed Chair Greenspan calling a bottom in housing some two months ago. (Nice to see Al hasn't lost his touch)

Is this really a bottom? Well, judging by all the Real Estate Flipper books that came out in 2006 -- or are about to come out in 2007 -- its a bit difficult to say the speculative excesses have been wrung out yet.

In fact, based on what we could find on Amazon, more Flipper books have been published over the one year period ending March 2007 than we could find over the previous 20 years -- combined.

Consider this a holiday shopping list for the people you don't particularly care for . . .
