I like torturing myself. I have become obsessed with looking at the real estate websites in our area. We aren't looking move. I look at these sites, just to watch the steady decline in home prices. It is like watching a horror movie. Everyday I am shocked and appalled. And a little nauseous.
We bought our house in early 2006, at the height of the market craze. We live in New Jersey, where everything is SUPER DUPER expensive. We literally paid three times more for our house in NJ than we did for our house in KY. At the time, we couldn't find anything cheaper. But now? Oh my fucking god, the houses are going for dirt cheap. Houses nearly twice the size of our house are selling for less than we paid for our house. Ugh.
I am pissed off and angry. What if the market continues to decline? What if the market doesn't recover in the next few years? Are we doomed to live in this crappy little house forever?
