Wyoming was #2 in House Price Appreciation in 2007!

According to an 88 page report from the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO), Wyoming real estate sales were number 2 in the list of states that had "...positive four-quarter appreciation" in 2007...".  This report has a negative title, but it has lots of positive data.  The list of states and their ranking by appreciation over 2007 is on page 25 of the report

80% of states had positive appreciation in 2007 according to page 25 of the report.  And, of the 291 cities monitored in the report, 65% had appreciation.  Statistics can be used to make any point you want.  This report uses a few different set of statistics to show different aspects of the housing market.

US real estate still provides one of the best available forms of investment for people looking to grow wealth over the long run.

The report can be found at:  http://www.ofheo.gov/media/pdf/4q07hpi.pdf

Happy Selling and Listing!

Thanx for the comments.  I'm glad to share the good news.  If we had to live on what the media feeds us, we'd all be moving to mountain tops to avoid the coming floods, women would rule the world, the only americans dying would be in our own streets (oops, they are now - just not reported with numerical emphasis), and marriage between a man and a woman would only be for having kids two men or two women could adopt.
