Still a good time to short housing stocks?

  1. I shorted a few housing stocks last year and then booked my profits (obviosly left tons of money on the table). I am thinking about getting back in on the short side but am worried I'm arriving late to the party (HOV has 13% short Interest). The housing market as a whole seems to be getting weaker due to higher interest rates even though some recent housing data has come in strong. Here is a chart of JOE. How much more down room is there really to go untill value buyers step in?
