The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Paul Chi and senior analyst Matt Argersinger discuss topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Matt interviews Paul about ways to play the housing recovery. Homebuilders come to mind as the most direct way to play a housing recovery, but with foreclosures and a huge supply of homes contributing to excess supply, it's a dangerous route to go. Paul suggests home remodeling and furnishing as two indirect ways to play the eventual rebound in home sales.
