Home price predictions for 2010 continue to stream in - and they continue to be all over the map. Latest forecast, as reported by the OC Register, comes from First American CoreLogic, which has L.A. County prices increasing 6.3 percent and OC up 9.5 percent. Statewide, the home data firm expects price increases to outpace the nation. These numbers are a little higher than what we've seen from other forecasts. Uncertainty over foreclosures, which would be a depressant on prices, makes prognosticating next to impossible.
