it really is just people are just staying home. what im starting to see is people are not going on vacations and are buying things for there homes. you can buy a pool instead of going away to a beach or you can buy a game room instead of going to the bar everynight(ok, not everynight). i work for the smaller side of brunswick. i sell brunswick pool tables. last year was a slow year due to everything going up i think people just kept there money. this year i see people buying things for home and just staying there. this summer has been pretty good for me and summer is the slow time of year. now, is this just another cycle? if people are buying things to stay home and everyone has that idea and start buying these big houses with a pool and game room already in it, then the market will go back up right. i dont know this is just a thought.
