5 Cities Where Home Prices Hit New Lows

Atlanta

  • Home prices compared to July 2007 peak: -39%

Home prices in Atlanta are at their lowest level since 1996, according to the S&P/Case-Shiller report. Prices have plummeted 39% off their peak in 2007. And there’s no sign of a recovery in sight. Over the past year, Atlanta posted a 17% drop in home prices – the biggest decline out of all the 20 metro area tracked by S&P/Case-Shiller

High unemployment is contributing to the city’s woes. The unemployment rate in Atlanta was 9% in February, according to the latest data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, compared to the national unemployment rate of 8.3% at the time. With more people out of work, fewer can afford to buy a home, lessening demand for real estate. In turn, homes in some Atlanta neighborhoods – particularly in the suburbs – have been lingering on the market for months, says Bill Golden, a realtor with RE/MAX Metro Atlanta. He says suburban home values have lost significantly more value than properties in the city’s center.

Foreclosures are also on the rise. Lenders repossessed nearly 11,000 homes during the first three months of the year, up 21% from the same period a year ago, according to RealtyTrac. These properties also impact the value of nearby non-distressed homes. On average, home property values drop about 1% when they’re within one-eighth of a mile from a residence that’s received a foreclosure filing, according to the Woodstock Institute, which researches foreclosures, and the Georgia Institute of Technology. When the home is sold – whether in an auction or taken back by the lender – homes within a quarter mile lose up to around 4% of their value, according to a separate study in the Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics.

      About Belly Button
      The belly button is a scar on the abdomen from where the umbilical cord is removed at birth. On humans, the scar can appear as a depression, otherwise known as an innie, or as a protrusion, otherwise known as an outie. Besides being able to be sorted into these two categories, belly buttons can vary in size, shape and depth from person to person. Because belly buttons are scars, they are not defined by genetics. They can be useful for telling identical twins apart when there are no other identifying marks.

    • This is a good thing that home values are falling. The economy is making corrections, but I am sure glad I am not a real estate agent. They are going to be an endangered species. When are we going to see a reduction in the property taxes with the market value of real estate falling?

    • You mentioned unemployment being high in Atlanta and Chicago at 9%, but failed to mention that unemployment is astronomically high in Las Vegas at 12.3%. Think that may have SOME effect on the Las Vegas housing market?

    • You know what, this is great news. People who got a job will finally buy a house for a good price, or maybe two for some cash flow.

    • Home prices are still a bubble compared to historic norm. According to case shiller index, we are still 20% above long term averages. Typical bottom comes at 20% below average. But this is not your typical recession. This is a deflationary crash. This is Great Depression material. There will come a time when QE3, 5, or 10 will not help. If Bernanke prints too much, lenders will refuse to lend at low rates. That will be deflationary for housing while price of food, gas goes up.
