  1. New home sales make up about 10% of all home sales, yes?

    They make a difference for GDP numbers, but a small part of the residential real estate market.

  2. Has the person who owns SS shorted the housing market a la John Paulson because you sure love to cherry pick stats that make the hottest housing market in over a decade look like its crashing (which its not).
