Predictive Analytics Assess the Nation's Future Five Strongest and Weakest Markets through June 2010

Santa Ana, CA - July 9, 2009 - Veros Real Estate Solutions has released its quarterly annual forecast of U.S. real estate markets including expectations on the country's strongest and weakest areas. Providing one of the industry's most accurate residential real estate trend forecasts, the results covering July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2010 indicate the rates of forecasted decline in the hardest hit markets are slowing and many hard-hit markets are projected to stabilize over the next 12 months.

The projected five strongest housing markets for major metro areas among singlefamily residences in the median price tier, according to the latest VeroFORECAST, include: Lubbock, TX; Oklahoma City, OK; and Waco, TX all up three percent, as well as Topeka, KS and Springfield, MO each up two percent.

The five weakest market projections include: Port St. Lucie/Ft. Pierce, FL; Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, FL and Las Vegas/Paradise, NV all showing 15-percent declines. Posting a 14-percent decline is the Detroit/Warren/Livonia, MI market, and at a 12- percent decline is the Reno/Sparks, NV market.

Since 2003, Veros has been a leader in real estate industry valuation forecasting analysis, providing highly accurate market predictions looking out as far as 18- months into the residential real estate landscape.

"We make it our business not only to perform and share our projections, but to do constant due diligence on our findings," states Eric Fox, vice president of technology for Veros. "It is because of the thorough and precise measurement of our results our clients feel confident using the data we provide them to manage risk in today's turbulent markets, creating stronger financial positions in both their short- and longterm business decisions."
