Nearly every day people ask me the same question relative to home values: “Are housing values at the bottom yet?” The answer varies depending the area you are asking about.
In this article Forbes provides mixed answers: homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area may “be there”. Other places in CA and around the country, however, may have a ways to go yet before their house-value-slide ends.
San Jose was specifically listed as one of the few metro area where values seem to have leveled. This continues to be good news for Morgan Hill, Gilroy and Hollister home values. With the majority of South County residents commuting up into the Bay Area, home values in these three cities will continue to follow San Jose’s lead.
So, Johnny, we’re there – but we won’t be returning to increased values for some time to come.
