Detroit home prices still slumping
Detroit home prices continue to slump. New data from Clear Capital show the average sale price in the first three months of the year for a home in Detroit was roughly 60,000 dollars.
Alex Villacorta is an analyst with Clear Capital. He says foreclosed homes continue to clog Detroit’s housing market, depressing sale prices.
“Once those saturation rates come down I do think you’ll see prices start to stabilize a little bit. Even if the overall health improves we’ll see may a more sustained price growth looking forward.”
Home sale prices held steady in most of the nation in the first quarter of 2011, except in the western U.S. where home sale prices fell to levels not seen since 2001.
