Housing Price Drop May Be Worse than Great Depression

by | Sep 5, 2008 | economy, houses

Economist Robert Shiller (of the Case-Shiller Housing Index) announced his findings concerning housing price trends. He predicts the nationwide average price decline for homes will likely exceed the 30% decline that America experienced in the 1930’s Great Depression. Since average price declines already are in the 20% range, the 30% benchmark is rapidly approaching. Some of the formerly “red-hot” markets are down 50% or more.
