This is a link to a Wash Post article on how varied the US housing recovery has been since the recession: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/business/wonk/housing/overview/
here is a companion piece on San Francisco/Stockton housing: https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/business/wonk/housing/stockton/
If you have trouble using the link just google terms like: WaPo housing divide and San Francisco's long shadow to see the articles that way. There is a map in the housing divide article that you can shrink and move around the whole country to see how appreciation has been everywhere including trends in ski regions. Surprisingly, Winter Park CO (at least the town) housing has not recovered since the recession according to this map. The San Fran article is interesting because it's where the recovery disparity is most stark in just an 80 mile radius. San Fran real estate has doubled in value since the recession, yet Stockton's has dropped even further. Some of the weak rebound is evident in the Lake Tahoe region too.
One of the themes of the articles is that while the housing market in general has recovered, the recovery has been sharply uneven in places. Wealthy areas have rebounded much stronger than lower valued areas.
How is real estate doing in your residential area, particularly compared to around your local ski areas?
