Dennis Gartman: Nobody Talks About This Key Real Estate Trend

Again, the woeful housing market was a big topic of conversation on Wall Street after the latest Case Shiller data showed a modest increase in home prices month over month.

Though a small point, it was still a glimmer of hope in what’s otherwise been a deluge of negative data.

But for all the woes, strategic investors Dennis Gartman tells Fast Money that, “People are missing something about real estate – something that doesn’t get talked about.”

He says the fact that housing prices have declined over a long period of time has changed the attitude of the average person.

And that’s a good thing – in fact he thinks it’s a very good thing.

Instead of having housing as a speculative play, Gartman says housing has again become something that you own and you sell years later.

And that’s a boon for the economy because “instead of poring capital into housing now capital is going where it’s supposed to have gone all along,” he says.

In other words, money is being put to work in a diverse range of assets instead of housing - so it’s generating strength, without causing a bubble.

”That’s the great thing that’s happening now and no one's understanding it,” Gartman says
