Here's a article from the one and only www.patrick.net Of course they list all the articles that the morning call and other realtor friendly newspapers won't print.

Homeowner denial: My home is gaining value

Realtors struggle to convince people that their home price has fallen, too

The housing market may have gone bust, but many homeowners are still living in a bubble.
Despite dismal housing headlines and reports showing falling prices nationwide, owners in some once-hot areas still believe their home is gaining value or at least holding its own. And by hanging onto too-high expectations, sellers are unwittingly keeping the market from finding a bottom.

A house is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The number of homes sold tells us that buyers do not believe that the bottom has hit. Eventually the prices will drop to a level that buyers find acceptable and then there will be an upsurge in buying, but if the prices do not drop to that level then there will be no upsurge and only the "best" homes will continue to sell.

I think the problem is people arent getting loans. I think people really do want houses, but lenders have tightened up. Also, the govt needs to drop the rates so it makes it very tempting to buy.

With this weather we've been having it seems that Christmas should be coming up, not Thanksiving! What are you doing for Thanksgiving this year?

We're going to my Sister in Laws in Lancaster for Thanksgiving and then the whole crowd, my parents, my in-laws and my Brother in Law and his family will come up here and spend Thursday, and Friday and nights at our house. It will be crazy and crowded but fun. My in-laws live in Colorado and my folks live in South Jersey. My BIL and his family live in Manhattan. Friday some cousins of my husbands will come over and we'll play some games and I'll make zita or something easy.

I love this time of year when we all get together but dislike the preparations- gotta clean the house! It will be nice though having my daughter home. She was in China last year and I really missed her. Meanwhile my second oldest will be in England and hopefully making his own sort-of Thanksgiving dinner courtesy of a food package I sent him. So how are you celebrating Thanksgiving?

Toobusytoday, that's interesting that your daughter was in China last year. I'm not hosting Thanksgiving this year because my close friend's dad is just getting back from China on Wednesday, so they aren't doing any travelling for a bit. Normally they are a big part of our celebration, adding 6 people total to the mix. My brother is going to his partner's house for Thanksgiving, so that cut more people. Eventually Mom and I decided it wasn't worth doing a big thing and instead we're going to have a nice breakfast and watch the parades then go to my boyfriend's Mother's home. I feel like it's not quite Thanksgiving if I don't cook though. Somehow running around the house cleaning and cooking for days is part of the fun! So enjoy that part of it, even though it seems like work! Never thought I'd miss it, but I do!

The snow! The snow! I hope everyone is home safe and sound, stocked up on whatever foodstuff you need. We got the call at 5:40 from our school district that it was canceled and my boss called to say our library was also closed. Yay! Thankfully husband managed to get out okay with our four wheel drive vehicle. And here comes the ice!

Surprised there isnt that much activity on the LV forums. There are plenty of people in this area, so figured there'd be some activity.
