Forty-eight percent of California real estate professionals expect home prices to decrease in the coming six months; just 13 percent expect home values to rise.
HomeGain, one of the first companies to provide free instant home valuations online, released the results of our fourth quarter 2011 nationwide home values survey of over 400 HomeGain current and former members and more than 2,000 home owners. The survey asked their opinions on home prices, what they thought of President Obama’s performance as President, and who they would vote for if the Presidential election were to take place today. On this real estate blog we published the 4th quarter 2011 national results as well as the complete 4th quarter 2011 regional results, including commentary from real estate agents and brokers.
Today we are releasing the California home values survey data. In the coming days we will be releasing home values survey data from Texas, Florida, Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Arizona, Virginia, North Carolina, Colorado, Georgia, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and other states.
