Price Appreciation – YOY, Q2 2021


“My sense is the Case-Shiller National annual growth rate of 19.7% is probably close to a peak, and that year-over-year price increases will slow later this year.” Bill McBride, Calculated Risk

“Closings are set to decline roughly 10% year over year in 2nd half of 2021 and home price appreciation is on the cusp of flipping to a decelerating trend.” Ivy Zelman, Zelman & Associates

Insights for Real Estate 4th Quarter:

“Fall is usually the start of the slower season for the housing market, but nothing is usual in today’s pandemic-driven housing market. Potential homebuyers are seeing a slight rise in inventory and consequently rushing back into the fray.

Mortgage applications to purchase a home jumped 7% last week from the previous week. . . . That is the highest level since April of this year. ” Diana Olick, CNBC's Real Estate Correspondent

“Homeownership is one of the fundamental keys to accumulating wealth in America—hence why it has been integrally linked to achieving the American Dream…Not only can owning a home provide a roof over your head and a secure place to live, but because mortgage payments generally remain fixed while rents may rise over time, a home can also be a very effective hedge against inflation. Together, these features can give homeowners an enormous advantage over renters when it comes to accumulating wealth.” DS News
