ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - It's not a list you want to find your hometown on.
A report from CBS MoneyWatch lists 10 cities that may not make it back from the housing market crash.
Las Cruces comes in fourth; Albuquerque is listed as eighth.
The reasoning? While other states in the Southwest are seeing home prices rise by leaps and bounds, "The housing market in Albuquerque remains in a funk."
Quite a few people KRQE News 13 spoke to who are trying to sell their Albuquerque homes agreed. Several have knocked down their asking price and still aren't having much luck.
"I put it on the market in April, and I've reduced it twice since then," said one woman who's trying to sell her home.
According to MoneyWatch's numbers, home prices in Albuquerque would need to grow by more than 20 percent to reach prices before the downturn, and growth this year was actually negative.
The Realtors Association of New Mexico crunches local numbers but for counties, not cities.
Association President Cathy Colvin says, though, Bernalillo County shows a 5 percent home price increase from 2012 to 2013, and the group believe the market around the state will recover eventually.
"That's just the way it is," Colvin says. "New Mexico for some reason always runs behind the rest of the country and the rest of the region.
"Our future looks very good and very promising. It's just going to take a little longer than the rest of the states."
Colvin says this same thing happened when other parts of the country started seeing signs of a downturn. She says it took another year for that downturn to hit New Mexico.
Even though Farmington didn't make the top 10, it was mentioned in the article as a place where it could "take centuries for the city's housing market to recover."
