The numbers were indeed incorrect and have been fixed. The original numbers were from a broker who included town homes in the "condo" category. Town homes have actually gone up in value, the broker says.

This is unsustaniable. Unless each person in a two-income household makes $250K each, once the downturn really kicks into gear, which his highly likely, these $900K townhomes will go into a quick sale or foreclosure... all it takes is one person to get laid off and whammo.

Homes have lost some value, but overall MV is doing quite well by comparison. While some homes are staying on the market longer, that should surprise no one. It is a buyers market. My wife and I purchased our MV home on 02 and our equity is still holding up quite well. Iím simply seeing no evidence of the doom and gloom Richard seems interested in promoting.
