Hedging a house

Everyone is betting on home prices falling and so there is really no cheap way to hedge your house. The last time I looked the forward prices a year out were 30% or so lower than current. So what good is hedging a future price that is already down 30%. Might as well sell at today’s spot price, yes?

Maybe next housing boom, but not this one.
