Wow..I didn't realize that Denver got hit that hard.

Denver did get hit. But I don't think it got hit as hard as Detroit. I live in the suburbs here and the automotive industry isn't helping either.

According to CNN, these are the worst 10 cities to buy a home. The expected percentage decline is listed below.
* Stockton, CA —> expected 9.7% decline
* Merced, CA —> expected 8.9% decline
* Reno/Sparks, NV —> 8.9% decline
* Fresno, CA —> 7.9% decline
* Vallejo/Fairfield, CA —> 7.8% decline
* Las Vegas, NV —> 7.1% decline
* Bakersfield, CA —> 6.6% decline
* Sacramento, CA —> 6.4% decline
* Washington, D.C. —> 6.3% decline
* Tucson, AZ —> 6.2% decline
But the worst is a matter of perspective. If you're able to buy cash flow(you know... profitable rentals) then you can buy all day long because your cash flow is making you money and your long term.

It is unfortunate that there are so many foreclosures across the U.S. If a homeowner can find a means to hold on to their property until the market turns upward, they may be better off. One suggestion is to rent the property out and move into an apt. or home that is less expensive and allow the renters of your property to carry your costs until the market turns upward. In La Jolla, CA. the market is fairly stable eventhough foreclosure are up. La Jolla homes are sought after by many people world-wide. The prestigious Robb Report publication has named La Jolla the #1 place to live in the U.S. Visit this website to learn more about La Jolla and view homes for sale.

Good post. We haven't been hit so bad in the Seattle area, although clearly foreclosures are way up from years past. But not so bad as out your way.

Everywhere got hit pretty hard, so it's no surprise that Denver got that punch. Just roll with the punches as they say.
