If you're still reeling from today's grim data from the National Association of Realtors, which reported that sales of previously-occupied homes fell to a 15-year low, you're not alone.
As the real estate market continues to struggle -- and begins to account for the expired first-time home buyer tax credit -- there's still a massive amount of "shadow inventory" dragging prices down. In fact, according to Calculated Risk, there's 12.5 months of housing supply in the market, more than double the supply seen in a typical market.
In comments to the AP, Paul Dales, U.S. economist with Capital Economics, put it this way: "With the increasingly inevitable double-dip in prices yet to come, things could yet get a lot worse."
