Selling In the Post-Bubble Market

Since the nationwide housing bubble has burst, a down market has thus ensued. With home values to dropping around the country, many potential sellers are in a bad position. Owning more on their mortgage than their home is worth, they are under water.

The 2008 real estate market was a wash. By the December of 2009, property values will have plunged up to a quarter in value. Though the market is stagnating, we may see recovery as early as 2010.
