“I was one of the most negative on housing involved. . I finally came to the conclusion housing looks like a decent place to put money over the next several years … For those of you renting or on the sidelines, I recommend you at least consider getting ‘back in’ and buying a house.”

Mark Kiesel, the PIMCO managing director who just purchased a home.
