 No one can predict the future, but when a city the size of Tacoma, (often in the shadow of larger northwest cities when it comes to real estate reporting) is declared the best bet for price appreciation from 2008-2013, it's hard not to be flattered and excited. This report was put out by Moodys based on information in the Case-Shiller Index.

Source: Fiserv, Moody’s Economy.com I live in Tacoma and I love this city. Nothing would make me happier than seeing that kind of appreciation. Regardless of how much stock you put in the Case-Shiller Index, it's great to see good things said about Tacoma. Go back and look, I didn't see the word "Seattle" anywhere in that article...
