Seen a certain way, aren't lower home values/prices a good thing?  Doesn't it make it easier for middle income families to afford their first home?  Not everything is a calamity.

Not to the states/municipalities that depend on the higher tax revenues to pay millions of workers and spend trillions of dollars.

Then isn't it a wash?  A plus for some and a minus for others.  That's always been the underlying dynamic tension in our economic system.  It's about time the so-called "cash starved" states and municipalities were put on a diet.  Ditto for those buried snout deep in the government trough.

If home values are falling, don't municipalities just raise the tax rates? I know from experience that is what they do in NJ. No "starvation" going on there...

In my neighborhood, property taxes range from $10-$20K+ per year.

If homes in my neighborhood drop below $ high can property taxes go?

As municipalities become more cash strapped....expect millions of workers to lose their jobs...and we will create a new NON jobs based system.

Unless your state has a cap like CA, property taxes can be $10K (or more) for a home valued at $10K.

My advice . . . 

     Pay cash for low cost properties and leverage them into something you can flip :-)  Buy a $300,00 home on the back of a cashed out $50K condo, then resell that depressed value home for $400,000.

     As long as the Fed keeps printing money with interest rates near 4%, why not? They (your Government) is asking you, through their policies, to do it.
