would 2008-2009 be considered a slump for Houston real estate?

Bunch of BS.
For those of you looking to sell your home thinking it is worth what a broker might have quoted you three months ago, forget about it. Prices of new and existing homes are falling - not year over year as reported - but sequentially month to month, starting in the early summer
The exact opposite is happening right now. At least inside the loop.

I think that what goes on in the rest of the nation's housing has little bearing on us. News is reported as to what is happening nationally - they never talk about the pockets that are different.

The "slump" we felt in 2008-2009 was really fear manufactured out of nation-news being reported on a continual basis. They never said "except Dallas, Austin and Houston". We didn't have the lay-offs in the numbers other parts of the US did. People were afraid to buy here during that time because they kept hearing that the housing market would continue to drop (which it did nationally). Finally, people here thought "oh, never mind" and bought - and life went on as it did before, until we started having shortages. Even the shortage was due to builder fear in Texas, not Texan reality.

hope so, so i can sell my place and take in a small profit.

imo, i think this year will still be high and in 2015 houses (esp in the loop) will begin to level off or even dip a little. it can only keep rising so much.

This thread is alarmist and is mistitled. The articles you use to support your flame are not specifically about the Houston housing market, yet your title suggest the Houston housing market is vulnerable on its own, which it is not. You should have posted this in another forum, and left Houston out of it specifically.

According to this data Houston is overvalued:

but then data like this shows Houston housing doesnt really follow any trends of the rest of the country: http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/...17182650412434
