According to Forbes magazine, a new report projects home-price declines for the next two years. The riskiest markets are in Florida, California, Nevada and Arizona.

Headed for decline
Not surprisingly, the riskiest markets identified by the index are located in areas that saw rapid price appreciation, a reduction in affordability followed by a rapid decrease in the rate of price appreciation. Of the 15 biggest cities with the greatest risk for price decline -- with more than a 50% chance of lower home values by mid-2009 -- five were in California and four were in Florida.

At the highest end of the spectrum, the following major markets all have a greater than 60% chance of declines, according to PMI:
  • Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario, Calif. (65.2%);
  • Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Ariz. (64.6%);
  • Las Vegas-Paradise, Nev. (61.4%);
  • West Palm Beach-Boca Raton-Boynton Beach, Fla. (60.7%).
Also at risk for dropping values
The next-riskiest top 50 metro areas on the PMI index, with a 50% or greater chance of dropping values in two years, are:
  • Los Angeles-Long Beach-Glendale, Calif. (58.6%);
  • Santa Ana-Anaheim-Irvine, Calif. (57.7%);
  • Oakland-Fremont-Hayward, Calif. (57.2%);
  • Orlando-Kissimmee, Fla. (56.3%);
  • Sacramento-Arden-Arcade-Roseville, Calif. (56.0%);
  • San Diego-Carlsbad-San Marcos, Calif. (55.5%);
  • Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach-Deerfield Beach, Fla. (54.2%);
  • Miami-Miami Beach-Kendall, Fla. (52.4%);
  • Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Fla. (50.6%);
  • Boston-Quincy, Mass. (50.1%);
  • Washington, D.C.-Arlington-Alexandria, Va.-W.Va. (50%).

from my point of view, dropping values = cheaper houses and more bargains.

Has anyone ever done research as to why South Florida has the most ridiculous real estate market?
