Being a renter, I can relate to this. After the bubble burst, I remember landlords were still trying to push rent prices higher; but lowered them a bit when they had no takers.

Its starting to happen already - I know of groups of investors buying foreclosed properties for prices that cash-flow from rents

Before the bubble burst our town (a suburb of NYC) was a hot area for housing and some houses were sold the same week they went on the market. We are keeping a close watch on the situation because we will be putting our house on the market next year in preparation for our move west. According to our realtor, at the moment the turn around time for selling a house is 83 days. The length of time it takes to sell a house will tell me when the right time is to put out the for sale sign.
