The State of the Real Estate Market with Ilyce Glink on the Clark Howard Show June 6, 2011:

According to an ever-growing number of experts, including myself, the state of the real estate market is sobering. The news last week about where home prices are going is frightening.

Home values nationally are back to 2002 levels, and in Atlanta, the situation is even worse, with prices matching what consumers might have paid in 1989. The latest Case-Schiller Home Price Indices Report includes one depressing statistic after another.

Where does it all end? My guests and callers on today’s show offer their thoughts.
