Home ownership rates continue to decline.  And the economy is likely, in the absence of a Fiscal Cliff, to continue to grow albeit slowly.  In addition, other institutional type real estate sectors such as office and retail have a far less sanguine near term outlook.  All of the activity BREW is reporting is just a manifestation of the above.  Elliott
