Compared to last quarter, the total number of declining markets has improved slightly, but it’s still very alarming.

1/4th of U.S. Markets Lost Value Year-over-Year

It doesn’t feel right.

102 out of the 400 major real estate markets in the U.S. experienced ‘real’ decline in home value Year-Over-Year… they didn’t even keep up with inflation.

List of the 199 DECLINING U.S. Real Estate Markets

The previous Market Report caused lots of questions about when to use “Year-Over-Year” vs. “Quarter-Over-Quarter” data. When analyzing YOUR local market, you need to look at BOTH; they produce very different results in rapidly changing markets (that’s a good thing!).

More importantly, how can YOU profit from it?

Was the Last Real Estate Crash Truly Unique or Just a Blip On the Radar?

Understanding Real Estate Cycles

If you have lost significant money as an investor or personally, I know it never feels small. I’m sorry that happened to you.
