Correspondent David Pogue talks with realtors across the country about their unprecedented sales, and with new homeowners whose migrations from larger metropolitan areas helped fuel a residential bull market.

  2. Hi, homeless here. I'm fixing up a van to live out of. I know Im lucky I have that metal roof over my head. Good luck to all of you struggling.

  3. Investors and corporations are buying up properties and driving up the prices. I'm a single person looking to buy a 2 bedroom apartment. I can't compete with cash offers.

  4. Great, you get a chitload of $$ for your house……..now what? Spend that chitload on a replacement home. Spok would find this highly illogical. 🙂

  5. It's the demographics in Boise, it's majority white. People are competing fiercely to live in places like that. Prices have skyrocketed in similar areas.

They are lying to you they want to turn America into a communist country with only a few corporations owning everything!!
