The reason that these cities are losing value in real estate is the same reason most are looking at this article and saying: "Who the f'ck would even consider living in the midwest"? Those living there want to escape the politics, the weather and the economy. Throw Michigan in there as well, soon to be a muslim terrorist hot spot!

dantenine,  It's IL, IL, IL, IL and WI.  It doesn't get more liberal than those two states (ok Mass, and CA).  Chris, stay in Chicago and don't forget to duck as the bullets fly by your head on the way to a hip bar.

Peoria is awesome! I don't know how you can call it a hicktown, I can go days without seeing a redneck, unless I drove 20 miles away. And I really wouldn't be bashing central Illinois right now. We are all devestated by the tornados that wiped the town out across the river (which is not smelly anymore) It is so great to see a community come together like this one has #centralillinoisstrong

Let's see here.  Midwest.  Midwest.  Midwest. Midwest. And Midwest.  Well, I guess that's why they're called the flyover states.

Who in the world would want to live in Peoria, IL, in the first place...redneck bars, no culture, poorly educated, a smelly river an nothing but nasty casinos and strip clubs for entertainment in the middle of a corn field...3 hours from civilization...and hey, they do vote Democrat and pay through the nose in taxes...shows you can't buy class, after all. Peoria will always be a hick town where those with nowhere else to go live because the industry there is so desperate that no one in their right mind would move there.

Wait....I live in Peoria!! I read these things all the time and never thought I would see my town as one of the worst...and @Yenney be careful what you are saying about IL and the democrats. It makes you look like a fool!

It's interesting how most of the "best" places were hit hardest during the recession.  History repeats itself.  Home prices that are increasing by 40% annually are clearly going to tumble at some point.  Just cross your fingers you are already out of the market when they do! 


The best places to own homes are in cities with a stable economy, not places like Florida/California that tend to be volatile.

The top six worse places for home values are the ones in Obambo's liberal/communist state of Illinois.. All the other worst are in other liberal/communist states..  Republicans always win when it comes to value and happiness... The Democrats are an azz-wipe group of nut case fools.. And I am happy that it is becoming very apparent.. I think the Red States should succeed from the blue states to save themselves from total doom...

The worst in the Midwest Rust belt.  The best in the sunshine states.   I have no idea though why people are moving to Sacramento.    Tule fog in the Winter and hot as hell in the Summer.
