There are conflicting reports on the housing market today. According to news sources and public records, the median sales price nationwide is down close to 16% from a year ago, to $174,100. Simultaneously, there are property data reports about existing home sales being up close to 4% from the last quarter. All the while, foreclosures are up 7% from the last quarter. But there is one fact about the housing market that arises out of all of these reports: Real Esate is Cyclical, Seasonal and Emotional.

Cyclical Cycles: Run about 15 years in length with the current cycle beginning in late 2006.

Seasonal Changes: Occur every year and follow a fairly consistent pattern. 

Emotional Changes: Fear of the unknown is the worst element of any financial market.  That is what we’ve experienced for the past nine months.
