Debating Weakness in Housing

Calculated Risk Blog examines recent signs of weakness in housing and why there may be a pause until late Spring before the sector picks up steam.  Pressure from rising home prices, higher mortgage rates, limited supply all combining to slow the market for a moment. Declining foreclosures and recent round of buy-to-rent led to lower supply faster than builders could respond or potential sellers could be convinced to list homes.

Next housing news is S&P/Case-Shiller on Tuesday and New Home Sales on Wednesday.
