Cyndi and I get asked all the time when we are buying a house. For some reason, people think you HAVE to buy a house. My standard answer is I think things are going to go downhill soon, but didn’t really have a good way to illustrate it. Until now that is. I came across a video on google video that illustrates why I think what I think. The video takes you on a rollercoaster ride of housing prices from 1890 to the present. The track follows the curve of the housing price graph. Take 4 minutes and watch it.
