    Yep keep your eye on the birdie, it's the yoy trend that matters. Week to week changes are likely just noise.

    The good news is there is less dumb money buying at the peak. Hopefully, this will limit the downswing this business cycle. Buying houses as interest rates rise is historically a stupid move.

     

    It is painfully obvious to all that the economy is slowing and at current rates will be in cyclical decline by the end of the year.

    Home prices are likely to continue this cooling off period with a large increase in existing homes for sale and new building coupled with a stagnant amount of buyers. There are exceptions in markets throughout the nation, however.
