I'm So Sorry I Missed This Sale (parody Ad)

That popping sound you hear is not a champagne bottle, but the real estate bubble:

Yeah, real estate bubbles are nasty... In 1986 there was a bubble in the Westchester County (NY) housing market... Prices were going up $30K a month. We just so happened to move during that time. Our $225K house dropped in value to $185K when the bubble burst a few months later... but wasn't reassessed for property taxes for nearly ten years.

Oh, and the same house at that time would have cost about $60K in the area from which we moved.

Redngold, that house would probably be worth $750-800,000 today. Bubble? not in the NYC area, especially on anything below $500K, although the upper end of the market is softining.
