Fair Price for Single Family in Somerset and Middlesex County in NJ?

I have simple question and without sales pitch if some smart real-estate brain can provide logical answer it would be helpful.

Somerset County (Bridgewater, Raritan, Franklin) and Middlesex County (Piscataway, North/South Brunswick, Edison) how much average price is down from 2006 peak? I understand all houses are not equal but I need reasonable answer... In short, House that was sold for 550k in 2006 what is intrinsic value left (lets assume its in avg. ok condition)?

The prices in those counties are down roughly 25% from the absolute peaks in spring 2006.  It would still depend upon a lot of factors such as any improvements or inversely wear-and-tear since the purchase in 2006, changes in the community for good or bad, etc.  Zillow actually does a really nice job of showing overall trends.  Links to the value indexes below:

Hope that helps.

The simple answer, appleusa, is 20% depreciation.  Of course, every home and location is different.
