Interesting Posts From The Week

We have had some pretty interesting posts this last week on Zillow Blog with the release of some new reports and covering some recent economic news. 

Proposed: $15,000 Tax Credit for Homebuyers - This is definitely the hot topic du jour. 

The Scope Of The Housing Recession -  Zillow's VP, Data & Analytics built a graphic to show year-over-year appreciation for the past six years in the 161 markets we examined in the most recent quarterly report.

Holy January! Buyers are lurking... - Zillow had our all time high traffic month in January - 7.5 million unique users.  Does this mean people are tip toeing back into the market and starting to see what's out there?

Americans Lose $1.4 Trillion in Home Values in Q4 - Our research shows that American homeowners collectively saw $3.3 trillion erased from the value of their real estate in 2008. What's all the more stunning is that $1.4 trillion, 42 percent of the annual 2008 total, was lost in the fourth quarter alone.  Read about all the data in the post, there is some phenomenal information here.
