I received an email announcement today discussing that many analysts think the real estate market - as a whole (remember real estate is local, local, local) has touched down at the bottom.
Per a  forecast by Fiserv, market watchers sees an increase in prices rising nearly 4 percent per year for the next five years. The greatest gains are exptected to be those areas hardest hit, such as  Phoenix and Las Vegas.
