U.S. Housing Market Demographics Will Peak in a Few Years

Phoenix Market - Factoids

Recent comments from Mike Orr at The Cromford Report.

This sounds right.

"The cooling of the market continues to accelerate, but it will take several months before reaching normal at the current rate of change."

And he has a comment about Phoenix rentals that is completely contrary to the current conventional storyline about rentals.

"The big changes are in single-family rentals where supply has doubled over twelve months and the average rent asked has declined by 18%."

Don't know if this is a hidden national trend or just a Phoenix quirk but if rents do fall a bit in Phoenix, it will have a big impact on investor purchases, and investor purchases are what’s driving the market and house prices right now.
