Housing Haunted By the Fed

The Fed chairman Jerome Powell stated in June that the housing market needed a bit of a reset. When he spoke again in September he elaborated on what that meant.

*An end to the swift rise in home prices where homes were selling way above their asking price.

*For supply and demand to get better aligned so that home values did not skyrocket higher.

*Help bring home prices more in line with rents and other housing fundamentals.

*The housing market would have to go through a correction to get to that place, a better balance. 

Housing demand is way down and housing inventory is way up; average days on market is now 87.  To find out more about this correction read the latest Orange County Housing Report from Steven Thomas in this link.
