Bankrate.com’s Holden Lewis made an observation via Twitter this week, in less than 140 characters, which sums up one of the points that Boston Real Estate Blog readers here sometimes make: “Are falling home prices bad news? Would falling used-car prices be bad news? There are two sides to every trade.”
The Wall Street Journal’s Robbie Whelan had a response: “Falling used car prices are inevitable and would be way worse if millions of Americans had poured all their equity into jalopies.”
What’s your answer? (You don’t need to stay under 140 characters.)
And, more fundamentally, are you rooting for prices to keep falling, stay where they are or go back up.
