California's housing market conditions have been one of the starting points for national, and then global, financial and credit market collapses, according to economic analysts. The Wall Street Journal just published a story analyzing the situation - it might be the beginning of a positive economic trend: "While the volume of existing-home sales across the U.S. fell 10.7% in August from the previous year, according to the National Association of Realtors, there are signs that the most damaged of markets are starting to heal themselves. Across hard-hit California, sales volumes rose 65% in September compared with a year ago, said MDA DataQuick, a San Diego-based real-estate information service."
On the other side of the coin, market conditions are still very unstable. The drastic drop in home prices in some California markets mean several homeowners are upside down in their loans, which moves them toward foreclosing their mortgages. The problem isn't solved yet, but it may have hit bottom and start stabilizing. Let's hope for the best.
