Podcast: Why Are Home Prices Still Rising?

Today’s podcast covers why are home prices still rising and the drama that happened after the Fed’s meeting to not raise rates. I have tried to stress that the year-over-year comps for housing data, sales, and prices are going to be easy to beat so take the data in context to the collapse in demand and fall in prices we saw this time last year.


For those who prefer a YouTube channel, HousingWire does have one now.


I recently wrote about the existing home sales report to try to put some context to the year over year price growth data accelerating again.


I will be on CNBC tomorrow morning to talk about the home prices and the new home sales data.

Every weekend for HousingWire, we bring out the weekly HousingWire Tracker report, where I take a deep dive into the current and forward-looking housing data lines so you can be up to date with the data lines that matter in housing. If you would like to join HW Plus to have access to the tracker, please use my LoganVIP20 code.
