No question San Diego is in a precarious position in this market. All the quantitative information points to a correction in prices. The big question is how far down will they go.

Should be interesting.

What happens when the accumulated interest on unsold units in new condo buildings plus construction loans exceeds current asking price for comp units?

I have that very question in my mind as well, frankly I do believe that there is a point where these apartment conversion projects "go red" meaning the money sunk in the project is more than the place is currently worth. I think that a lot of projects are heading in that direction quickly and that somewhere late summer you should see some corporate breakdowns start to occur.

Just my humble prediction. :)
