Has the housing market in your city crumbled, with the price of housing going way down?

Here either. Houses are going for way less than they should and people are getting foreclosed on a lot. There are houses in my area that have been on the market for at least two years - and these are nice houses in a desireable area! It's really kind of sad. If you have no property to sell, it's a great time to buy a house though.

It seems to finally be catching up to my town. About a year ago a house around here would rarely stay on the market for longer than a few weeks before it was sold, and now there are houses around the place that have had "for sale" signs out front for months.

The houses in my area are still priced more than they are worth,but way way lower than 2 years ago.

Make up your mind- - is it getting better or not?

I would argue that it would depend on one's perspective. If I were buying a home, falling prices would be a great thing. If I were selling a home, falling prices may be a bad thing- - depending on how much I originally spent on the home...

Hardly any houses are selling around me. But I think that's more because they're all insanely over priced.

Seeming as to I'm going to be buying a home soon for my college years, and then selling it after I am done with it, I think the falling prices are wonderful.

But, then again, it's depressing to see the ones suffering from it.

Wouldn't that be common for this time of year though?
