With the Dow hitting a new all-time high, look at what is booming.
January 14 (King World News) – Gerald Celente: As people lose their jobs and wages diminish, the “rent but can’t buy a house” trend will continue to escalate.
Just as they did back when the Panic of ‘08 hit, the Bigs will build new houses and buy ones in foreclosure to rent out to cash-strapped consumers.
New home construction is speeding at a pace not seen since 2007. Many of the buyers are not individuals but institutional investors who are betting that families want to exit the cities and live in suburbs even if they are unable to buy a home there.

For example, the Journal reported that the five Arizona projects bundled 943 one- and two-bedroom houses built by Taylor Morrison Homes for developer Christopher Todd Communities. The two are partnering to build more “rental villages” across the U.S. southwest.
The share of single-family homes built for investors will grow fivefold to 5 percent in the next few years, Darin Rowe, Taylor Morrison’s rental chief, told the Journal.
More than 50,000 such houses were built in the 12 months ending 30 September, compared to the 31,000 in a typical year, reported John Burns of Real Estate Consulting.
The figure does not include single house projects or houses in typical subdivisions that investors have bought, the Journal noted.
This trend began at the end of the Great Recession when investors who had bought up the thousands of foreclosed homes were seeking new ways to expand. It will continue to grow as the “Greatest Depression” worsens.
