San Diego real estateAs hundreds of billions of dollars worth of loans sold to so-called “subprime” borrowers — historically those with shaky credit histories — are now “resetting” to higher monthly payments, many of these borrowers are facing default. And as lenders foreclose on these loans, homes are re-sold quickly, creating further downward pressure on housing prices. Median home prices this year are expected to post their first year-over-year decline in decade.

All the 'industry' sources are soft-pedaling this value drop. Their statements are eerily similar to how they pooh-poohed the housing bubble red flags many old timers like myself, said spelled trouble starting in 2002 thru 2005.  What do you think?

  1. To me recession looks like a sure bet! Falling home values, high gas prices and climing interest rates are sure to all combine to move us toward a recession.

  2. I would say from the way San Diego real estate prices are falling, a recession is a better than 50-50 chance. Los Angeles bail bonds
