My friend at Paper Economy is testing out his new data visualization engine and he pulled together a scary chart of Year over Year house prices in Phoenix, Arizona. Can you believe it? We are below 2000 prices?
This is truly a frightening chart and I suspect that real estate prices could go even lower in Arizona, and the rest of the country for that matter, if people continue to get laid off. This would confirm my observation from earlier this year about real estate and equity prices having further to fall.
