Excerpt, Barron's Online May 17, 2007.

Buffett declares Housing Bust Over, Time to get back into Real Esate.

Housing bust? I think not says the most influential value investor in U.S. history. "I think the housing bubble is the most overdone non event of this century, the exact opposite of what I thought during the dot com boom. The media has scared the wits out of people" claims the oracle of Omaha in a rare interview with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo on Wednesday at the Friar's Club of Manhattan. "I'm a value oriented investor and I like tangible assets, and I don't see what all the fuss is about. For most people, their house is the best investment they will make in their life. In my humble opinion, now is as good of time as any for the typical American to invest in a home if they want to, interest rates are near all time lows, and there are some great values out there."........

Funny, I think those quotes must be fake because on May 7, 2007, Buffett said the housing market was in sick, sick shape:

But Buffett had a decidedly different view about the housing market. He said too many homes were bought by people carrying mortgages with little or no money down who then hoped to flip them quickly for a profit. "The housing market is sick and it's going to stay sick for a couple of years" he opined.

...Buffett said Berkshire units related to home construction have been hurt by a housing slump in the U.S. economy he expects to continue for ``quite a while…..


Also your link doesn’t seem to work. It takes you to some Dr. Happy Talk B.S. thing …..
