The 2010 outlook revisited

Here's a look back at what MONEY said was in store for 2010 and how the year has actually shaped up.

1 of 5
We said: Home prices would fall 5% to 10% before hitting bottom later in 2010. Mortgage rates, then 5.1% for a 30-year, would stay low.
What happened: Prices held up much better than expected and will end the year almost flat. Mortgage rates went lower still.
