Re: So Cal Dude: There are several bearish builder REIT ETF'S, but if they

Msgreenacres, thanks for the feedback! Is there an easy way to short a home builder stock? I have an online trading account but I only know how to buy a stock long. Also, if there is a margin call on a ETF that has a real estate shorting strategy, doesn't the ETF handle the margin call or is it up to the individual investor?

Thanks!

So Cal Dude: There are several bearish builder REIT ETF'S, but if they squeeze, you are going to be getting margin calls. Directly, there are also a hand full of builders you can short, i.e. TOL, DHI, HOV, etc. Be careful, and go slow!
