Your observations really illustrate the reality that real estate markets are local. The media portrays the entire valley as being in a housing crisis when the reality is there are distressed markets in the valley.

This is not a surprise since these were not markets where the vast majority of 2004/2005 speculatory purchases were made.

You are correct about the financing issues. We have another round of ARM adjustments coming next summer, many of those JUMBO loans - so unless something is done to stem the tide of foreclosures we will continue to see distressed property skewing the values lower. Once we get through this glut of distressed inventory, we will see stabilization of prices. The number of sales is going up and seems to have stabilized to a certain degree nationally based on the stats for recent months.
