It is always important to understand the housing market if you own property or are planning to own property. If you currently own property, knowing when the market is hot and when it cools off can help you make a decision on when to list your house or hold on. If you are wanting to own a property, understanding if we are in a buyers market versus a sellers market will inform your home buying strategy. If you don't fall into either of those two categories, remember that the housing market is reflective of our economy and health as a city, so it's still good to know at least a brief overview!
