If you bought a home in Miami in 2005, we're sorry: over the following six years it depreciated in value by more than 54.3%.

And the rebound -- if there is a rebound -- won't come soon.

Between Q2 2011 and Q2 2016, Miami home prices will decline at an annualized rate of 0.7%, according to data provided by Fiserv Case Shiller.

Fiserv identified 15 housing markets that will appreciate at an annualized rate of less than 1.5% -- a pretty lousy investment. If you stay out of these markets, the national average is slightly better at 3.7%.
