In the Texas Housing Market, It’s 2006 Again

Housing-market-mapBusiness Insider highlights a new report that in most of the U.S. home prices have a ways to go before they again reach their 2006 highs:

“Overall, the recovery has been rather uneven, with states that enjoyed the largest home price increases before the recession still far from their prior peaks and states that missed the housing boom closer to recovering their losses,” writes CoreLogic’s Kathryn Dobbyn in a new report.

As you can see from the map above, only Texas and a few other states have gotten back to where they were before the recession. Looks like Tornado Alley is the place to be.

Sharknado Alley, by contrast, is still down 27%.
