Doesn't this one show that over ten years you are up anyway?
What are you talking about dasmo? What "you" are you referring to with this infographic of US states? This is HHV! Anyway, nobody's denying housing has seen a significant nominal price increase over the last ten years. Perhaps a bit too much?
"Doesn't this one show that over ten years you are up anyway?"No. What it shows, as MD80 pointed out, is that nominal prices are up in almost all US markets over 10 years ago.That does not necessarily mean that someone buying 10 years ago is ahead of someone who rented for the last 10 years and buys now. You have to compare the costs incurred by the buyer (e.g. interest, which was a lot higher 10 years ago than today, etc) with the costs of the renter (i.e. rent).That said I don't think anyone buying 10 years ago in the US made a bad choice. But nobody was calling a bubble back then - either in the US or BC - were they?
We know that long term housing appreciation is 0 to 1% after inflation. So it's not a surprise that that's about what happened in the US.Obviously the difference to here is that we haven't significantly corrected yet, while they are comparing prices from before the big increase to now. Compare US prices in 2015 to prices in 2005, you won't see the same positive numbers.
