Real Estate Loses Luster-Will Stock Market Revive?

It occurred to me that the big run-up in stocks (which ended around 2000) was followed by everybody investing in real estate. All of a sudden, people were buying up old houses and fixing them up, building condominiums, etc.-all of which drove up house prices. Now that RE has crashed, where will all the money go? There isn’t enough gold-so will people start pouring money back into the stock market?:eek:
