It doesn't matter who the person that is President. It's the ideas that matter. The idea won't change. So housing will continue to fall in 2012. Throwing money at a failing system will cause prices to drop farther, not stabalize and bring the prices back up.

Historically, real estate values have risen an average of 7% per year. That's an average. It means that if the average holds up, declines in values will be followed by increases in values. It's always  just  a matter of timing. Don't subscribe to the panic syndrome.  And "experts" don't know nuthin'.

Ah, the 'ol crystal ball. 
Nice try, but you can't predict what housing prices will be any better that you can predict when the next asteroid will strike the earth, or how many will die from swine flu. Hard to believe you actually get paid to write this stuff.

This survey is a misuse of bandwidth.  Housing prices have already started an upward trend.  New housing prices haven't declined more than 20 percent.  The cost of materials alone to build a house will drive up the costs.  Materials have already gained in price due to the lack of building.  And NO, Obama will not win a second term.  Interest rates will start to rise along with a side order of inflation.  The dollar bill won't be worth 50 cent in the outside market because of the multi-trillion dollar debt and the overprinting of U.S. currency.

Sad The saddest thing about this situation is that because of my age (73),  I don't have that much time to wait to sell  my place (which is in great need of repair),  and  as a widow on a small fixed income,  I can't do much to improve the place.  I  want in the worst way to be able to move into a senior citizen housing area not to far away from me - but with out being able to sell my home?  I can't afford to buy the apartment I would love to spend my remaining years in.      Just one more sad story to add to the ever growing list of  situations  we are now living with in today's economic world.   Sad

We are not to know the future in life. Just live the day as it comes and make the best of it. To lead people in this direction is not christrian like. We can prepare somewhat for tomorrow but can not depend on predictions for sure.  There is 1 and only 1 whom knows all things.

Until we get rid of big government (whom currently owns shares in our banks, auto and housing industries, as we as G.E. and now nationalizing health-care), the prices on real-estate across this entire country is going to continue to plummet. We are not going to see any kind of housing gains until we reach an economic turn-around, and that is not going to happen until we get rid of or tie the hands of the current administration. That is the way it is, and if you do not believe that keep setting on your haunches doing nothing until your house gets taken by the state too.

Obviously the best place to live in the current market is in the White House. Does that sound ridiculous? Just think about it for a moment: you get to live in a mansion with a salary of a couple hundred thousand a year, free limo, airplane & private helicopters. You have a housing project near by (in case you get home-sick)--but we will all have one near soon--and you get to spend all of the money that 300,000,000 people can earn over thier entire lives, the lives of their children, and their grand-children. So when are we going to put a stop to this man doing this to us and put a stop to the housing crises and economic woes in this once great nation?

I cannot see how some report can decide it knows one way or another how housing will go. Mainly because different areas have ups and downs, so the East may have a rise in value while the South takes a nosedive. Basically, a good sound house in a decent location will have better value than a dump in the stix. And I love Obama! High time the regular folks get their fair time in the government instead of stuffy overrated "I'm rich, my friends are rich, my family is rich, so I'm a big snob and could care less about the little people." I like to put it this way, and said it before: you can't have some fools  run up a tremendous credit card bill for years before they  leave office then get mad at the next one coming in who has the guts and savvy to know it hurts to correct the mess, but it has to be done. Things take time, and he deserves the respect of allowing him to do his job without backseat drivers.

   Havent you seen the teaser for the movie 2012,  the world is coming to an end and your home will have no value at all.   Jeez  if you can't believe the aztecs who can you trust.

Well I agree with callaway bird 617. He just scammed us to vote for him and now we are in a situation that we might get killed and not that many people will live.

UNLESS you are DEAD or planning a move....why would you give a shirt!

given the condition of the economy and the massive deficit spending we will be lucky if our homes are worth what will have to pay in property taxes by 2012.

If anybody thinks that Pres. Obama can correct all the damage Bush done in his 2 terms, has to be an idiot like this predictor of home prices.  I am in my 80's, and have seen inflation out of control, but the last 8 yrs  of Bush has taken all records,  and never will be matched again unless by a CAPITALISTIC screwball as him.  Historic trends do ring true for the Republicans, along with Fox news.  You sure can  count on them to make the rich richer, and the rest of the populace suffer.  That is why all the millionaires grew to billionaires, due to inflation.  Oh, I forgot, good old Bush gave them a big tax break to accomplish this!!!!!

We need DEFLATION now , not more INFLATION.  So, let the home prices come down.

Callaway bird,

Seriously?  I'm pretty sure it wasn't Obama's lack of oversight that got us here to begin with.  Does anyone remember a guy by the name of Bush?  Use your bird brain.
