Home Prices Falling, Yay!

It's harder than ever to sell your house, which is a bad thing! Except it's also a good thing, because "hard to sell" equals "easy to buy." Oh, stupid economics. Here's what that voodoo boils down to, according to the Guardian (the grown-up one): "[In 2006], if you earned the median wage in San Francisco, you would have needed to devote 75 percent of your income to meet mortgage payments on the average home. Now people will pay just 35 percent of their income." Sweet! We know EXACTLY what to spend that extra cash on. [Guardian]
