Used house prices rising too fast,
This reminds me of a shithole I saw in San Jose this weekend. It was posted for $360k for a 3/2 at about 1300 square feet. However, after you get there they tell you it has $80k I liens, has. 1% short sale fee attached, and oh yeah.. The current residents are chain smoking hoarders and the house needs about $50 in repairs. I even heard the realtor say that the bank, a German one, was expecting offers in the low $400's at least. I just couldn't believe it.

How do decide a reasonable home price for income level,
What's interesting is that I make an ok wage (about $130k) a year but I still find it difficult to consider paying more than about 300K for any house in the south bay. I would suppose that I just don't want to get stuck with an albatross around my neck as I've seen so many others do. On the other hand, it might have to do with the fact that I perceive the homes as being a bad value proposition as they are so overpriced.
For example, I recently walked by a house in the rose garden area of San Jose that had an asking price of $2 million. The house is a disaster and in need of a total and complete gut. The roof has several holes that animals are using, the floors are warped and covered with animal droppings, the foundation looks to e badly cracked, the whole front porch has partially sucken into the ground and the windows are the original single panes. And yet they still want $2 million for a house I would't pay more than $100k for.
And yet, for low end homes you are still seeing postage stamp condos and town homes with $300k asking prices. It just boggles the mind that they are still wanting that kind of money.
