I have received numerous emails on when I think we will hit the bottom of this housing bust. Right now prices have gone from a peak of $315,000 (median) to $190,000 (median) that is a drop of 40%. Add in inflation and selling expenses and the numbers look even worse. Remember all those realtors telling us in 2004-2007 that "now is the time to buy". Thanks for the good advice!
Questions for the readers -
How much lower will prices go?
When will we hit bottom?
