Realtors have been distorting the truth for some time now, using sales of newly constructed apartment buildings to skew the numbers. We're led to believe that their numbers apply to single dwelling homes but they have been using an equation even Einstein could figure out to distort the facts. In other words they lie to get people to believe its a good time buy a house that may appeciate, or may not. In this market, fagetaboutit.

Hey yall -

Bought my house in Preddy Creek sub-d in Greene County in 2008 for about 300k (had to put 5%). I refinanced in 2010..put somewhere around 15k through USAA but hey...NO MORE PMI! I recently owed 258k ish and sold the house for 258k but I had to pay 14k more just to sell it. Really....If you dont plan on staying in a house for at least 10 years or like my parents 45+ years....DONT BUY ONE or you will loose money. They (banks, Realtor, closing lawyers, and anyone else that can squeeze something from you) will. And I paid all my bills all the time and due to a move for work, there is no feeling worse than hearing how great the market is but nobody wants to see your home but one ever few months.
