Feeling confused about what's happening to housing prices? You're not alone, there are multiple pricing metrics and *a lot* of conflicting information out there. This page explains:

Check out the first couple paragraphs from this article from February 2008...Like everything related to 2008, there’s a lot to unpack here. But in a few short sentences, it mentions three times the trigger to consider walking away was that the payments were about to spike..."
