A fellow named Newton once said that a body in motion tends to stay in motion. Presently, the housing market is going to be in a state of anti-motion, otherwise known as inertia. Each year, the activity around Independence Day collides with market trends because the summer holiday season ends up being more about family fun than housing fuss. As the market shifts from under us, things like historically low interest rates and rising rents cause pause for those with a clear idea of what they want despite the lack of funding to achieve it.
