There is also another factor. This time, both buyers and sellers know that prices are likely to fall.
“I think the religion people had from 1946 to 2008 that house prices were always going up is dead. My parents believed it was literally unthinkable. [home] Prices will go down.” Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman said: luck last yearBut that so-called house-price “religion” collapsed with the 2008 crash, Kelman says. “So people react [now] in addition [correction] With most PTSD, they recede much faster.
Let’s take a closer look at the latest Case-Shiller data.
124 consecutive months from the bottom of the previous adjustment in February 2012 to the high of 2012 pandemic housing boom June 2022, Seasonally Adjusted Case-Shiller National House Price Index reported positive month-over-month growth in house prices. It has been superseded by this new streak. US house prices fell for the fifth month in a row.

Meanwhile, companies like Moody’s Analytics, capital economicsWhen goldman sachs I think house prices will fall further Even if home sales are nearing their respective bottoms(You can see housing price forecasts by 29 leading real estate researchers in Japan. here.)
“We expect home prices to fall almost 10% from peak to trough, with weaker household income growth (even in the absence of a recession) and mortgage rates averaging 6.5% this year before returning to 5.5. This is necessary to re-establish housing affordability, given that if mortgage rates were to fall and household income growth strengthened, the decline in housing prices would be less severe. Owners experience a life event that would normally cause a sale in the hope that mortgage rates will fall and market conditions will improve.
