City-by-city price comps
Syracuse, N.Y.
This city is an "innocent" party in the housing market collapse, says Bernard Markstein of the National Association of Home Builders. It didn’t overbuild, and prices didn’t go out of line. "When the economy was booming, they didn’t tend to do as well, but now that we’re going down, they don’t get hit quite as hard," he says. The growth in foreclosures shows how woes in the national economy are hurting the former industrial city.
