“Home Prices May Fall Further”
–generic headline discussing the housing market
Whenever I see a “non-headline” headline like this, it reminds me of a colleague’s comment about an ad for income property a few years ago. Along with the property’s asking price, key stat’s, etc. was this language: ‘rents could be higher.’
To which my colleague riffed, without missing a beat: ‘ . . . and they could be lower, too.”
So, yeah, home price may fall — or, they may rise!
Sort of sums up the options.
P.S.: in the same vein, years ago National Lampoon ran a spoof of USA Today, which raised (lowered?) banal headlines to an art form. Example: ‘Puppies . . Dogs of the Future?”
