Housing Overvaluations Increase During Third Quarter

38% of Housing Stock 'Extremely Overvalued' in Global Insight/National

WALTHAM, Ma. and CLEVELAND, Dec 09, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via
COMTEX/ -- The third- quarter update of the Global Insight/National
City Housing Valuation Analysis released today shows 38% of the top 299
metro housing markets are extremely overvalued and at risk for a price
correction. The number of extremely overvalued markets actually
declined to 65 from 67 in the second quarter, showing the incidence of

beginning to see more diversity among metro areas. Not all are moving
toward loftier valuations, as was the case during the 2003-2004

I don't disagree with this statement, but try and get the tax
assesments lowered when there is a correction made in real estate
sometime down the road. Once the politicians have their hooks into
your wallet it's nearly impossible to dislodge them. It takes someone
like George W. Bush with the vision and courage to stand up for the
people and make the government give back some of the hard-earned money.
