September 2019 housing data: prices pull back but supply remains low

A summary of last month in 2 charts:

1. Prices eased off

2. But months-of-inventory remains low, and supportive of somewhat higher prices. Unless that changes, I wouldn't expect anything like the price decline we saw at this time last year:

Thanks for the update. It does seem last year's stat and price drops around this time were solely based on the interest rate increase. We've since backpedaled on that and we do see this softening but it's not like last year where no one was putting offers for a good month on anything. (well except me of course, lol. sadly my lowballs didn't catch)

Trump admin enticing banks to make more FHA loans.

These are 3% down loans to borrowers with lower incomes and credit scores.

3% down has been a thing for a while, started again after Mel "the Skell" Watt took over FHFA.
