I would concede that many of the states in the middle of the country may have kept a stronger housing market than the large metropolitan cities on either coast. I saw an 800 Sq ft. house with about 3/4 of an acre of land sell for $1,000,000 in the South Bay in California. That same house and land would probably go for $20,000 in the middle country.
