In the midst of these “big ticket items,” several housing markets have stood out from the rest. Here are four such markets:

Fort Lauderdale

Fort Lauderdale saw one of the biggest home value declines in 2010. Values have gone from $106,000 to $278,000 at the end of 2019, an increase of +161% in these 10 years, according to Redfin.

Las Vegas

Las Vegas has seen the biggest contrast between the decline in incomes and the increase in home prices. The median home price in Las Vegas has increased at an annual average rate of +14.1% throughout the decade. Median incomes declined at an annual average rate of -0.4%. This income decline caused a decline in homeownership rates from 59% in 2010 to 52% in 2016. A slight increase in homeownership rates, 53%, happened in 2017.

San Francisco

As a former resident of the City By the Bay, one of the nicest things about living in San Francisco was that most anyone could live there. Not any more. San Francisco has seen the largest dollar value jump in home prices in any US city this decade. Home values soared from $698,000 in 2010 to $1.4M by the end of 2019 thanks to a booming job market and the dearth of for-sale homes.

Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City has suffered the worst for-sale inventory drop of the decade. The number of homes available to buy has dropped a staggering -77%. One of the reasons for this supply crash is that Salt Lake City’s Boomer demographic is now spending an average of 23 years in their home. In 2010, Boomers’ average tenure was 10 years.

Long Island’s Nassau County

Nassau County is seeing the largest decline in Days on the Market, DOM, of any US location. In 2010, the average DOM equaled 180; at the end of 2019, the average DOM was just 56 days.
