Best and Worst Real Estate Markets Named in 2009


The annual best and worst housing market forecasts for 2009 have been released by Housing Predictor dot com, which forecasts more than 250 local real estate markets in all 50 U.S. states. The Top 25 Markets and the Worst 25 Market forecasts are issued annually and updated throughout the year as local market conditions change.

The best and worst markets have the highest probability of hitting their forecast from all the forecasts the research company issues. Nearly two years ago, long before the credit crisis became daily headline news Housing Predictor analysts forecast-ed the foreclosure epidemic and the real estate depression.

Despite the fall out of the credit crisis, however, there are housing markets projected to be exceptions in the worst economy since the Great Depression in 2009 driven by local market dynamics.

Eight states have markets forecast to appreciate in 2009 making the Housing Predictor Top 25 markets. Sixteen housing markets scattered throughout the country are forecast to appreciate during the year. The epidemic of foreclosures has topped 3.4-million homes and is projected to worsen in 2009 as the second round of adjustable rate mortgages reset. More than 3-million ALT A mortgages will reset in 2009 alone. As a result, a high number of housing markets will sustain double-digit housing deflation.

Markets in more than three dozen states are projected to sustain double-digit housing deflation, including California, Florida, Michigan, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Arizona, Nevada, New York, Connecticut, Delaware, South Carolina, New Mexico and Georgia.
