Over 20 Million Houses Sitting Vacant-Fabian Calvo

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

Real estate expert Fabian Calvo says there’s more to the story about rising prices in the housing market than what’s reported by the mainstream media.  Calvo charges, “There’s a tremendous amount of manipulation . . . Yes, prices have gone up 3%.  I see it, but it’s because the inventory has been suppressed on purpose by big players . . . not foreclosing on properties.” Calvo should know because he runs a company called TheNoteHouse.us.  It buys and sells $100 million annually in distressed debt and real estate.  Calvo says, “Over 20 million houses, on any given night in America, are completely sitting vacant.” 

According to Calvo, the economy is being helped by “shadow stimulus.”  It’s coming from millions of underwater homeowners who have stopped making mortgage payments.  Calvo says, “Money that would have been otherwise allocated towards a housing payment is going into consumer spending.”  The Fed is also propping up housing by suppressing interest rates.  Calvo says the fragile real estate market would crash if rates rose just a little, and he adds, “That’s why you’re going to see low interest rates . . . through 2015 or until there’s some kind of dollar or bond crisis.”  Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Fabian Calvo.

  1. Yves Smith – NakedCapitalism participated in a great video that needs to go viral… The message is that the lack of homeowner protection is a result of failed policy decisions and it’s time for a change. http://deadlyclear.wordpress.com/2012/12/06/yes-its-specifically-housing-socialism-for-the-rich-and-incompetent/
