Deadline Newsroom Update 4/4/08

Deadline Newsroom Update - March found California at a crossroads, along with the rest of the economy; Echo Boomers stepped up; lenders who once wanted to sell homes were wishing they could step back; sustainable solar, lighting and green lifestyles got more entrenched; the economy stagnated, braced for recession and homeowners discovered there's lots to do around the house -- other than spend money, but including actually saving money; another housing portal opened up with Google-like search tools; taxes became more certain than death and credit and mortgage markets remained moribund. Hope, as always, sprang eternal.

When Will Housing Recover?
An ongoing Deadline Newsroom Poll "When Will Housing Recover," found 35 percent (the largest group) betting it will recover sometime after 2010; 25 percent believe 2010 will see the housing market turnaround; 24 percent say 2009 will usher in the beginning of the end of the housing slump and 15 percent remain under the impression 2008 will find a cure for the housing hangover (they must not be reading DeadlineNews.Com).

Home Prices May Not Rebound Until 2010
Yeah, that's what we said.
