When will home prices return to bubble-era levels?
Moody's Analytics is predicting that home prices in the Baltimore region will climb back to previous peaks in five or six years. Do you think that's likely? What's your own personal prediction?
It's easier, of course, to take a stab at what will happen within the current year. But you'll find plenty of varying forecasts.
Forty-five percent of the nearly 200 readers who took last week's poll think home values near them will fall in the next six months, 41 percent think values will be unchanged and 14 percent think values will rise. Pretty similar to the results of a HomeGain poll of Maryland homeowners, as it happens.
And that's it for me today -- lousy cold. Hope you're feeling well, and feel free to talk amongst yourselves.
