As somebody who woulda,
coulda, shouda bought years ago, I celebrate the coming crash. OK, it's not a sure thing. But tell that to the chief economist of the Mortgage Bankers Assn, who's bailing out himself:
"I'm going to rent for a while," said [chief econ] Douglas Duncan, who expects "significant reversals" in regions that have enjoyed strong home price appreciation, including Washington, D.C., Florida and California. He plans to sell his suburban Washington home, which has tripled in value since he bought it a dozen years ago, and move into an apartment.
