Preserve Mortgage Interest Deduction

There are about 78,000 homes that are either vacant and for sale, or under construction.  This is an improvement and with a normal level of buying, the homes would sell in 2 1/2 months.  The study shows that there is a housing shortage brewing.  If this happens, then it would change the market to a seller’s market and buyers will have a hard time purchasing again.  The market today is still considered a buyer’s market and there are more bargain hunters out looking for deals.  More investors are also very active making all cash purchases.  There are 6 cities that are considered to be cheaper  then renting the same house.   All this may be  history if unemployment rises, which it is decreasing today, interest rates continue to rise and become non deductible.
