    Wow! Now THAT is interesting reading, from Realtors no less!

    Question is: Does this make a bottom? and are these now bargains based on yield?

    & probably more importantly from a local perspective.....do the current market conditions & the lag effect mean something similar happening here?

    We all know exnzpat thinks it will.
