SJ will look worse than North Jersey in a year or so because of unemployment growth.

Rule of thump is: the quicker the bottom, the quicker the rise.

Look at the retail numbers. With rising unemployment, people are cutting back and they wouldn't dare to buy expensive houses.

That said, where are the jobs in SJ that can support housing during this recession?

For no reason of their own, they have to take the burden of those irresponsible people.

It's good for the health of the country if the house price comes down so that people can buy houses and still have some spare money to spend on something else.

So house price coming down is a good sign and then why not post?

When housing was going ga ga, everybody pasted those news. Then why not now??

Wait. Why would prices "come down" in the SJ area if it never had any type of bubble or unusually high appreciation?

He is wrong. So you are. "This" kind of wealth destruction didn't happen since great depression. It does not "keep" happening.

Yes I am. Not only me, every other friends of his sees that.

To whom? Let the market bottom, people will jump to buy houses. We will again see economic activities. Now it's a deadlock and it's bad.
