Sales of existing homes soared 5.1% in May to a seasonally adjusted rate of 5.35 million, the highest level since November 2009, a time when government incentives in the wake of the recession boosted the real-estate market. This year's sales have exceeded last year's for eight straight months and stand at 9.2% above last year..

But existing home sales, which account for about 90% of the market, are still well below their prerecession peak, when they routinely exceeded 6 million and even topped 7 million for part of 2005.

This may be a blow-off peak before the Fed-induced liquidity bubble pops...

The new radical leaders have promised to cut their own salaries, halt homeowner evictions and eliminate perks enjoyed by the rich and famous.

The landmark changes came three weeks after Spain's two largest traditional parties were punished in nationwide local elections by voters groaning under the weight of austerity measures and repulsed by a string of corruption scandals.''
