I don't think anything that has happened in the last 6 years is indicative of long term values. In this time people have sunk their boats to avoid paying marina fees, have had their houses foreclosed on and parked their multi-million dollar jets to avoid paying the insurance.

If you wanted to sell any asset 2007 was the time to do it. Probably 2011 was the best time to buy anything as it looks like prices are going up. I still think the prices are fairly depressed compared to long term valuation and it is still a buyers market.
