California real estate and Florida real estate had the most price declines in 2007, according to an 88 page report from the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO). This report is titled "Widespread House Declines in Fourth Quarter," but in reading the report, theres good news for some areas of the country. On pages 32 through 49 of this report, the full list of the city appreciation and depreciation rates can be found.
Of course the title of the report isn't as positive as most of the data indicates.
Each set of statistics this report uses, show different aspects of the housing market. Statistics can be used to make any point you want. Choosing the best place to invest in US real estate has become easier with the information available in the Internet. You still have to interpret statistics and read full reports to get the full picture. US real estate still provides one of the best available forms of investment for people looking to grow wealth over the long run.
