Prof. Karl E. Case on the housing slump: "It's bottom-fishing time"

It is really remarkable how much where we are today looks like the bottom we've had in the last three cycles. Every time we've gone below a million starts, the market has cleared at that moment.

It's bottom-fishing time, I think. There's got to be bargains in Florida, Arizona and Nevada.
