Another House Price Round Trip to the 1990s

by Calculated Risk on 4/12/2009 06:55:00 PM

Zach Fox at the North County Times brings us another house "Deal of the Week": Sans stability in San Marcos

San Marcos is in north county San Diego.

Here is the price history for the featured 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home:

May 1992: $115,500

April 2003: $275,000

April 2006: $440,000

March 2009: $135,000 (REO)

The March 2009 price was a distressed sale, and is half off the 2003 price. Once again, I wonder what buyers (and lenders) were thinking in 2006?
