The real estate market in the United States is in a funk, but that is not a bad thing.
The US economy has lost more than 10 million jobs since the beginning of the year, and the unemployment rate has soared to 7.3%.

The economy has created only 11.6 million jobs and its jobless rate is already the highest in the world.
The real estate bust has been the catalyst for a massive rise in home prices and a surge in mortgage debt, making the market a perfect target for speculators, who are desperate to make a quick profit.
