I understand that this is a pretty gloomy picture, but I can also assure you that this is not want anyone wants, including the past AND current administrations. Unfortunately, we live in a culture that operates on the laws of supply and demand economics and market prices fluctuate accordingly. It’s the dark side to our economic system, and there is no easy fix.

Let me know if you’d like me to do a CMA for your home to tell you exactly where you are. You can click through to my profile to contact me through Trulia.

Just curious if O admin is doing something about this. People who buy in the area in the last 3-4 years can't even refinance not because they can't afford it but they can't come up with the extra $. Is this what the Admin want?

The appraisal will be based on comparable sales in the area oevr the past three months. If you have less equity in your home than you owe on your existing loans, you will not be able to refiance. You might want to check sooner than later - prices are still going down in your area.
