Price Reduced!

This weekend I though I would introduce something new to the blog, It is a new weekly column I’m calling “Price Reduced!”. What I’d like to do is to go through the price reductions over the past week and pick out a handful of significant price reductions. The list doesn’t single out a specific area, type of home, etc. I’ll try to post up as many as I can, but it’s a tedious and time consuming process. This list took me over an hour to gather up, format, and get the links to.

The purpose of this exercise is to illustrate that prices are indeed falling, and the bubble has burst. Now begins the long ride back down to the bottom.

And now, without further adieu, the list please!

    I don’t believe this means anything. These price reductions are obnoxious to begin with.

    What I would like to see is what similar houses sold for in these neighborhoods 5 or 8 years ago. This would give show the true insanity of even after these token price reductions.
    Many these houses are up 100% + in 5 years. Do not bid on a house. Don’t waste your time.
    The greedy realestate industry has turned the housing business into one big casino. The public will backlash against this group when reality hits and the pumping and hyping is proven wrong.

    The only thing you can really tell from this data is a small subset of sellers reduced prices for one reason or another. Even with the reductions prices are still significantly overpriced. However, what I was attempting to do is illustrate that sellers are dropping prices. It’s not unheard of. But that brings us to the next step.

    What I’d love to start seeing are records from the country tax records that show sales at break even or loss. It will still be many months before that’ll happen, however. That will be the proof in the puddin’..

    If a home price was reduced, it just goes to show you that it was overpriced in the first place.

    Is there a public source to find out what a home sold for 5, 7, 10 years back?
