Tell that to those who lost everything in the housing bubble. The rental market looks good at this time, but not such great time for flipping.

If that were true, then why whine about the rest of "us" getting 2-4%"?

Trump wants to slash taxes (to mostly benefit the wealthy like him), and he wants to cut corporate taxes to 15%, and still the "big wigs" want nothing to do with him.

Wall St doesn't love Hillary, they despise him.

Those that held their property are likely at above crash prices .
If someone bought with a loan they couldn't afford that's something else .

Meanwhile lots of stocks went bankrupt and are now worthless .

I'm not whining about us getting 2-4%. I'm whining about how the whole system, everything financial and political is rigged in a way that's unfair to us.

Yup, Wall Street loves Hillary - the "people's candidate." What a joke of a country.
