The existing January-February 2018 Daytona Shores Value of $367,000 average may increase when the March-April figures

MARKET UPDATE ~ THE BOTTOM LINE:      Updated June 28, 2018                                                                                   

The Real Estate Market is experiencing the relationship of a USA economy slowdown. Basically the FED's position on raising interest rates is affecting purchasers and sellers as the housing market becomes more depressed and Prime Lending interest rates have moved up 1.5%. This rate hike is beyond what the American economy can absorb as at this time. The medium USA family average wage level of $31,000 Annual per Individual and $56,000., per Family. The average family annual  income  of say $56,000. buys the average home in the USA.

The FED's move of raising rates in the last 18 months has resulted in a decline of the real estate market activity of Homes and Condos selling  as of the month of June 2018. The value of the individual real estate sale of about $257,000 that is the same as with the June 2016. The Market Sales have had a dramatic decline in lower end sales from $0 to $250,000 and up to $500,000. The May and June 2018 higher end Sales influenced an upward price adjustment of the median and average home sale price.

History shows when interest rates are going up Americans sit on the purchase and investment sidelines. There is no offset for an ever growing Consumer Price Index without real estate profitability for the average american and First Time Home Buyer. Real Estate is approximately a 50% contributor to the USA economy. It provides well paying jobs at all areas of American wealth including and not limited to production and manufacturing of goods and services. In addition, Real Estate is the single most valuable asset an individual or American family has for shelter and wealth to fuel their purchasing power in America.

Therefore, in part, American's purchasing power has been diminished to 0 due to the FED's agenda, in all probability stemming from the past 2009 to 2016 administration to today. America is feeling the results with Home Sales, Retail Sales and declining Auto Sales lead the USA economy as government politicians look the other way.

A basic time interval is a annual reoccurring determination of "growth at a rate" if the real estate market recession of 10 years is going to emerge to a growth market for the American public. The Benchmark for the USA is +7.5% annual real estate appreciation. Another words if you have a home worth $100,000 in January 2018 it should be worth $107,500  by January 2018, as an example.There are only several Hot spots in the USA that are reaching the benchmark.
