Home Prices in Some Markets Return to 1997 Levels
Real estate prices in a few U.S. markets are back to levels not seen in a decade, according to data released by John Burns Real Estate
Consulting on Friday.
In a report titled, "Back to the Future: Median Home Prices
Mirror Years Past," the study's author Gregory Tsujimoto says prices in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Oakland have fallen back to 1997 levels, while healthier markets throughout Texas are hovering at 2006 levels, suggesting the state's brighter employment prospects
are preventing steep drops.
The markets performing the best include Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio.
All other markets fall somewhere in between the two extremes, with prices hanging somewhere between 2002 and 2004 levels.
