Abstract: 2007 has been a year of surprises for those who thought the housing sector had nowhere to go but up. The cautiously optimistic forecasts of a year ago were proven wrong, as each new release of housing data was more depressing than the one before it. The rule of thumb in home furnishings is that a fifth of all sales derive from a home purchase, so this is all pretty unsettling to retailers. Does the housing slump have the U.S. economy primed for a serious downturn, or are things less dire than they seem?
