|The US real estate market continues to surge. For some perspective, today's top chart illustrates the US median price (adjusted for inflation) of a single-family home over the past 43 years while today's bottom chart presents the semi-annual percent change in home prices (also adjusted for inflation). Today's chart illustrates that the inflation-adjusted median home price has rarely increased more than 10% in six months (gray shading). When inflation-adjusted home prices did increase more than 10% in six months, it was often soon followed by a period of stagnant or declining prices. It is worth noting that over the past six months, the median price for a single-family home has shot up at the fastest pace on record.Notes:
