On previous posts on one of our other blog sites we guessed 5 to 15% drop in values on the Northeast side.
Looks like for today that 15% is the number.

Creepy things when looking at homes
Unfortunately at any given price range the homes with the most land have the least home. Or the least desirable home.
In looking at a home West of Chelsea I unlocked the 100+ year old farm house to find it vacant. Along with the smell of an oil furnace there were some cobwebs and some dust. As we went through different rooms we found a small bedroom in the back. As we walked in we heard a scraping & scratching sound in the outside wall.
I'm not faint of heart, but that kind of thing still gives me the creeps.
I'm sure it was just a squirrel, (too much sound to be a mouse) but hearing that kind of thing in the wall right next to you is still creepy!
The other creepy thing I ran into last week was a vacant luxury home that had a basement floor covered with dead pillbugs. When I say covered I'm not kidding, there was almost no place to put your foot without stepping on the dried bodies and hearing a crunch. To make matters worse one of the buyers I was taking through the home had gotten some mud on their shows and so removed his shoes at the door. He was crunching these things in his stocking fee.
And remember this was a luxury home which we define as having an asking price over about $500,000.
The nation's top buyer's agents meet
Normally we meet at a convention once a year and the Board of Directors of NAEBA meet for a planning session a month or so later.
Here is a photo from our planning meeting in January. I'm the one in the back on the right side in the blue shirt and dark sportcoat.
Our property search sites already show addresses and sales status for Ann Arbor area homes.
I don't know why they decided to change.
I've often felt that homes can be too big. (There is one 8,000 square foot home on the market right now that has been sitting vacant for about 2 years. It just feels too big.)
I know the way my family uses a house I don't want the kids to go to their rooms all the time, I want them in the family areas. (They will grow up too soon anyway but that is another story.)
This article has more info.
In any case it is a very unhappy situation.
They guy was saying if he had only read this before he started looking at homes.
They even promise not to subject their clients to dual agency!
