Can you determine what the average house market decline percent was for 2008?

Asked by Tooter, 55901 Fri Apr 17, 2009

If so, do you have market data that is specific to price listings, ie homes at $150,000. to 200,000.00, $200K to $300K, etc.

Most REALTOR Associations keep this kind of data. The Southeast Minnesota Association of REALTORs will have the data for Rochester and Olmsted County. You can visit the MLS Trends section of their web page at formore details.

The data is so varied depending on area. This has all the market data you would ever want:

Anyone who gives you a straight number is not giving you the whole picture. Real estate is local and cannot be summed up in a simple formula or answer.
