Mortgage Rate And Home Sales Weakness Accelerates

Jim Cramer was spot on with calling the housing bottom. Oh wait - he was dead wrong again about this as he is about everything else: downward prior revision and lower than expectations. At least he is consistent at batting 0: almost as good as someone batting 1000.
