An excerpt from his article showing how inventory dropped off at the end of 2011:

Rich:  This stat above, which is very important because it combines supply and demand into one figure, was substantially lower than a year prior, by 22.2% to be exact.  So we enter 2012 with a fairly different setup, supply and demand wise, (and thus a more positive outlook for prices) than we entered 2011. 

On a gloomier note, that higher demand is taking place in an environment of lifetime-low mortgage rates… if (when, in my opinion) that prop is removed, the housing market will have to fend for itself a bit more.  Of course, that could be a way off.  In the meantime, those waiting for a big price decline are likely to be disappointed.
