In the United States of America, in regards to the real estate market the ratio of owned property has always outweighed rented property. Prior to the subprime mortgage crisis, the real estate market in USA favored real estate investments. Buying a property was considered to be a good investment. The predominant situation of the real estate market depends exceedingly on the housing markets. A mild fluctuation in the real estate market can affect the housing market to a great extent. With the deterioration of the U.S. economy, people have been investing less money in real estate.

Recently we have seen some of the worst real estate markets in the history of our Country. If you want to invest in real estate, first calculate a mortgage to avoid incurring real-estate debt because the economy has still not recovered fully.
Many of the states and cities in America have thousands of unsold homes. Many cities have been struggling economically for years and thus the real estate market has suffered too.

Worst Real Estate Markets:

  1. Detroit in Michigan – In Detroit, the largest city in Michigan has an employment rate of 13.70% and the median price cut is 10.64%. The home listing with price cuts is 27.66%. The city built on an auto industry is feeling the crunch of the real estate market. It was badly hit in the recession.
  2. Flint in Michigan – Flint too is another city in Michigan which has been badly hit by the economic downturn. Thus, the real estate market is suffering with price cut listings at 31.19% and median price cut at 11.55%. The unemployment rate in this city is around 14.70%.
