I am sure many other terms have been used to describe how the housing boom will end. The boom is over in most bubble markets. Now, most bubble markets are in a period of stagnation ( "standoff") . The stagnation period will soon give way to price declines. All these terms are interesting, but numbers are more important. Will the LA market be down 25% inflation adjusted from its peak by December 2007?
