US banks told: prepare for 47% drop in house prices

The US Treasury told the country's major banks they must ensure their capital levels can cope with a severe recession, including unemployment over 10% and an overall 47% drop in house prices from their peak in 2006.

your tax assessed value is EXTRAORDINARILY different from your appraised value.

you can appeal the assessed value (which is what your taxes are based upon)....

Yes that is true you might want to appeal with what is going on, you can do it yourself or hire a local attorney who specializes in it .

I bought my house in SW Florida, Naples area for 156,000 in 2004, my neighbor just bought the house across the street, that is 1 bed and 1 bath larger than mine for 109,000, houses are selling for under 100,000 in this area. What to do? I have to live somewhere, and would never qualify for a loan now, as I am unemployed.. (contractor)

I'm in S. Florida too, and you're right. At the peak of the bubble, houses in my neighborhood were selling for around $420k. A house down the street sold in January for $240k. I look at my house on zillow.com about once a week. It has gone down $10k/week for the last few weeks.

You know what is even scarier ?????? I have looked at some houses , compared comps and talked to some realtors about offering etc and some people out there are still paying way too much , offering almost full price etc. They are so clueless , if they can't see the signs there will be another wave in a year or so again if we even recover to the point a wave would matter. Wish they would wake up and pull their heads out of their....

Re: Whoa! US banks told: prepare for 47% drop in house prices
It's unclear if the source means "ANOTHER 47%" on top of what's already happened, or if they mean an overall 47% - which has already been exceeded in markets like Phoenix, Las Vegas, and Simi Valley CA and Stockton CA. (The average drop in a "luxury" home in Phoenix is now in excess of 55%!)

There are many on the market still at their "old" prices or appraised valuations. But they're not selling. They sit there until hell freezes over. Once the owner or the bank (if they're a forclosure) drops the price below 50% of the old "high" then they start to move. Some have had to go down to 75% below their old "high" but mostly on VERY costly homes! If they were ten million to start with, getting 3 million for them today is about average!

But heaven help the guys who put 10 million into the construction of one of these!

They know the exact number....47 percent. Now how would they know? And why will they probably get this right on the nose when they didn't have a clue that the economy was going to crash? Because they planned it to happen just like its happening.

In the Inland Empire (southern CA), the condo I have as a rental has dropped 44% in value since I stupidly purchased it in Nov 2005.

I bought it for $288K and the same model just sold for $162K! I'll never get that much back! Thinking of letting it go...It will take a long time to get $126K back!
