Hi Rahul-Singh23,

I agree! Some homes bought during those years did not appreciate enough to make a profit or break even. I see many Short Sales on the market this 2013 season.

I can assess your property market price if you'd like!

I'm a licensed PA Agent ! I live in FortWashington, PA in beautiful Montgomery County.

Please call or email me in the near future!

it seems some of brand new homes are cheaper than 2004-2006 homes even without starting negotiations or back to late 90's home where seller has some equity so easy to negotiate.

At the 50,000 foot level homes lost 40% of their 2005 value in 2008 and beyond.Some locations have experienced some value increases late 2012 and 2013.

Where the 10 to 14% appreciation you refer to fits in is beyond me.
