Now let's move into the US Housing Market statistics.

There is till talk of recession amongst the talking heads and economists. This has many people spooked and not sure what to do with their money. Some are moving to precious metals while others are shorting stocks, buying cryptos or investing in real estate.

It is apparent to all that the yield curve is inverted. It is usually a sign that there’s a recession right around the corner. That coupled with the up and down stock market has caused a lot more conversation about a recession. Most want to know how an economic slowdown will affect home prices.

If we take a look at the National Report per state for the year-over-year change in prices, every single region is seeing positive appreciation. Most states are at or above the national historical average.

The perception is that the level of homes is depreciating; this is just not the case. As you can see, not a single region is depreciating. In fact, the appreciation is more considerable than the historic norm of 3.5%. Price adjustments are healthy, and there are not any red states. They all show appreciation.
