What does this mean for the Poway real estate market?

If the last few months are an indication of the temperature of housing markets across the country, a period of relative calm can be expected during the last months of the year. A trend of market balance is emerging as we approach the end of 2018. Prices are rising at a less rapid rate, as inventory and market times increase.

Stock markets experienced an October setback, but that does not necessarily translate to a decline in the real estate market. The national unemployment rate has been below 4.0 percent for three straight months and during five of the last six months. This is exceptional news for industries related to real estate. Meanwhile, homebuilder confidence remains positive, homeownership rates have increased in the key under-35 buyer group and prices, though still rising, have widely reduced the march toward record highs.
