Earlier this week, HomeGain, one of the first companies to provide free online instant home valuations, released the second quarter results of our nationwide survey of over 900 HomeGain current and former members and 3500 home owners. The survey asked their opinions on home prices and what they thought of President Obama’s performance as President. On this real estate blog we published the 2nd quarter 2010 national results as well as the complete 2nd quarter 2010 regional results, including commentary from real estate agents and brokers.
Yesterday we released the second quarter 2010 California home prices survey results.
