Adios to a rainy, chilly May.
Larry has the numbers first as usual. All three categories showed a very small average price increase. The average prices are basically flat or down from May 11. Average detached AND apartment prices are down 4% over that two year period.
I have no doubt that if the real estate board's HPI continues to show the real numbers, they will show a drop for MAY.
Final MOI for May :
Apartment : 6
Clearly there was a little more strength in May than the preceding few months. The question is whether this will continue or if that is the end of the peak buying season.
Fun with quant: MS Business Conditions edition - Marketwatch recently reported that Morgan Stanley's Business Conditions Index had deteriorated to levels last seen during the 2007-08 financial crisis. Wow...
