Affordability Index Update – Remember Real Estate is all about Micro Markets

by John Glynn on June 12, 2009

Holy smokes!

Check out this article from the LA Times, talking about the real estate market in Lancaster, CA. House prices are down to levels not seen since the late 1980’s! If we could get an affordability index for this town alone, I imagine it would look quite exaggerated compared to the one above. And if you’re a homebuyer in Lancaster, that’s a good thing!

Bummer for everyone who bought over the last 20 years, especially if they are looking to sell, but if you’re out looking for a home, or an investment property, this is what we call a ‘no brainer‘.
