88 U.S. Markets Lost Value Year-Over-Year

Last quarter, home prices declined Year-over-Year (YoY) on a ‘real’ (inflation-adjusted) basis in 88 (21.7%) of the 405 largest metropolitan real estate markets nationwide.

In the previous quarter, 103 markets had annual home price declines.

(See the entire list of declining markets below.)

Sixteen markets saw double-digit appreciation; only one had double-digit declines.

Many investors/observers/click-baiters still find it hard to believe that after the biggest 3-year real estate wealth creation period in history, coupled with the steep decline in affordability, that the markets have stabilized here for the moment.

Contrary to popular belief and all the fearmongering, Housing Affordability is NOT a reliable predictor of market cycles.

Continue to ignore their chicken-little calls that the sky is falling, it’s looking more like a market-by-market event for now.

We’ll let you know if the sky ever does start to fall. 🙂

Lots of markets seem to be in appreciation catch-up mode, creating arbitrage situations and many local pockets of opportunity.
