"Bullish?" to me "bullish" implies being aggressive and creating opportunities where they my not really exist, taking risk that may not be well thought out.
Today's buyers are no doubt the most educated and best informed in the history of housing, in part because of the evolution of the information age. Markets are changing everywhere but at different rates. Thus, the Miami market may be further along in recovery than the Detroit market. 2013 buyers need to continue with the position that has helped the market to improve over the past 18 months, making solid, well informed and financially sound decisions.
Buyers in 2013 should be smart and informed....I see promoting a "bullish" platform as one leading to a market similar to the one of 2002-2005....one that helped create the mess we are so despirately trying to leave behind.
