#1 Interest rates. Raise rates and decrease buyers. Decrease buyers and homes for sale increase. When there is more homes than buers prices go down. If banks stop lending the market can crash.

No market goes in only one direction forever. Whether it is stock or real estate, there are only two questions and they cannot be answered definitively: 1) When will the change take place and 2) what will be the size of the change?

Why? Too many possible reasons to enumerate here.

Housing costs and interest rates are important factors.

Many have high student debt and uncertain career paths and many marriages are being deferred to make the market even more complicated.

This is an excellent question that can never be answered but only pondered and talked about. Its like the weather and the wind which comes and goes as it pleases. We may find an answer of a type in Mother  Nature and her four seasons where one season hands off to another like clock-work creating what we call a cycle. All living things have a cyclic nature. Note: Because the players are mortal and subject to, sickness, growth, expansion and risks including death... change is forced in Real Estate. Shelter is also a demanding dynamic to our well-being. Lastly, we remain territorial by nature and Real Estate documents and regulates this theme

Supply vs demand.

A few 100 homes or less is sensitive to local price fluctuation.

Demand is based on affordability(interest rate, disposable income), new jobs created and intrinsic psychological reasons. 

I have people who called me that they have saved ~$1M by renting and send me spread sheet.
