What does a normal real estate market look like? What does normal even mean these days?
Normal is the average, typical state or condition, the usual the expected. Hate to point out the tension in the room but…. Just a guess but if something feels one way for 15 years, that becomes the ‘new’ normal, but in systems with years of being – their typical state or condition has a much greater scope than even our lives, like the earth, like the economy.
In an article in Market Watch by Daniel Goldstein, personal finance reporter, there is some ho-hum news.
Ho-hum is what a normal market or a real state market or a sock market does. Inflation slowly raises prices and other things, like home investment, becomes less appealing and the market will correct its course with proper stabilization from the Federal Reserve System, banks themselves, wages employers pay, etc….
The economy is like an organism. It lives and changes, grows and reinvents itself with the demands of growing, earning and living people. The earth itself is an organism that shifts dirt and water over its surface and burns from the inside, and the layers of atmosphere that coordinate to the organisms living needs, as well as affecting consequences of organisms actions against the well-being of the earth.
The economy is going to live and we are limping a little and tired from hustling after that last housing bust. And we are thinking about what our desires do to the market and what that can do the earth. Millennials are getting ready to buy because the Eco-friendly, minimalist yet materialistic homes are working up from the dream – to the manufacturing phase.
The switch to more normal conditions is simple. There has been a shift from containing the risk to growing the market. Perhaps a shift to optimism, versus pessimism? It couldn’t hurt.
