Jeff,These artificial stimulants need to clear the market so we know what we really are dealing with. Of course they will help somewhat but it also gives a false reading on the market.Don

Answer

I know this can be a frustrating time especially if you are selling your home. Keep in mind Zillow is averaging from a wide area so if you have lower priced homes that are selling (short and foreclosure sales plus smaller homes) around you it effects the average price of the home. The pricing trend is still downward and until short and foreclosure properties are back to normal levels 5-7% of the selling market, we are going to continue to see downward pressure.I hope this answers your question
