How Far Will Home Prices Go Down
Q: It looks like home prices are going down now finally. How far will home prices go down? Victor, Livingston, NJ
A: Home prices have cooled in many local real estate markets but not in all real estate markets. Every local real estate market is different and the pace of home price declines will vary from market to market. In fact, some local real estate markets may not see home price declines at all. It depends on the town and ultimately on the specific neighborhoods in each town. Averages are misleading and some towns and areas simply have more sustainable home buyer demand regardless of current macroeconomic conditions like interest rates and the current state of the economy.
