  • Interesting graph as it shows the rate of decline not the actual prices. If the line levelled off now it wouldn’t look very dramatic but it would mean house prices are continuing to fall at 17% per year. Actually, the rate of decline is increasing !


    I’ve gotta say, I looked at villas in Florida a couple of months back and didn’t see much change from 2006. I guess there are huge regional variations.
