The San Francisco Chronicle stated in an article published in January 2008 that Bay Area median home prices and sales volumes experienced significant declines in December 07 and the price drop was the largest year-over-year decline since February 1993. Homeowners needing a sell are in a downward slope that offers them little hope in the waning current market. Even with the Fed dropping interest rates houses are languishing on the market at alarming rates.

The Chronicle sites: “The sense of stalemate is reflected in ballooning inventories and the length of time some properties languish on the market. A Zip Realty analysis of MLS data showed that inventory levels in Bay Area counties were up 23 to 99 percent from a year ago. But now that the mortgage market has put the kibosh on many higher-end home sales, the median is sliding. “It seems like home buyers are waiting for the ideal property; something that doesn’t need any upgrading.”
