Housing Trends That Are Changing The U.S. Market


Housing data provider HouseCanary recently looked at all 318 MSAs in the U.S. for affordability, price growth, and market pace in order to provide a snapshot of where the market is slowing down and gaining speed. Their goal was to ultimately answer the question; is 2018 a good time to buy a home, sell a home, move up, or invest in real estate — or will you be better off parking your money elsewhere, whether that means buying a house in a different location or an investment in an entirely different industry?

US markets that have been headlining the recent growth cycle are decelerating dramatically, bringing their growth more closely inline with historically stable MSAs.
