Please, please,…if you do anything, do this! Realize that all real estate markets are very local.
My hometown might be different than your hometown. Livermore, CA looks very stable based on this 5 year chart yet I hear people here say every day they are worried about doom and gloom for pricing. Don't listen to major media outlets for an understanding of what's going on in your hometown. If you need to know what's going on in your real estate market, contact an agent specializing in your market.
