Depending on when you bought your home you may be in good shape. Yes, we had a bubble in 2006 but this graph is interesting to me. If you bought your home back in 2000 just 12 years ago you have done fairly well. Real estate has shown to be a good investment when compared to Dow, S&P and NASDQ. Do you consider real estate part of your invesment strategy? If not, maybe you should.
