Re: Real Estate prices sinking

Dropping real estate prices extrapolated to dropping rent may help individuals but if this leads to dropping prices for everything your starting to look at signs of a recession and people losing their jobs. Not really a great situation at all.

Easing of the housing market is one thing but be careful what you wish for.

Are Florida prices sinking? or have they sunk already? i know they tanked but didn't realize they were still dropping.
The rise of real-estate-prices in the past lead to problems for most companies and to job losses.

No, the sinking of real-estate prices is favourable to the overall economy as most companies work in rented real estate . Your idea is based on 1912 realities when companies did own their buildings. But those are long gone times.

And lower renting prices give more money to the companies AND less overvalued rents for real estate may bring in more foreign investors / foreign companies.

And the whole thing may bring down the CHF to a decent level, which means one Euro being CHF 1.47 again which would be a decent rate that again would improve business of both industry and retail
